A Hard Day's Night - The Beatles

Once: Music From the Motion Picture - Markéta Irglová,Glen Hansard, Interference

Marketa Irglova, Glen Hansard and The Frames




Actually more of a musical; but the soundtrack does feature songs not in the film, and there are songs in the film not sung on screen. PLUS it's too damn good to leave out!

I was unable to find any clips from the movie so here's a busk from Hansard, the ultimate buster.

Karen O. & The Kids

The clip beforehand is great; but if you want to begin at the start of the song, "Pusherman" go to 1:50

Phoenix provided the music for Sofia Coppola's most recent film "Somewhere" but a soundtrack was never released...

Stehako's rating:

UPDATED APRIL 2011

Films that called for one artist to create the melodic mood for the story.

Before you protest, I know some of these don't have have only one artist. Some that are like that are at least dominated by that artist or are all produced by that artist.

*Excludes traditional musicals


Suggestions welcome, Enjoy!
