Best Film Soundtrack Albums

No doubt we've done it before. This list looks interesting:

http://www.nme.com/photos/61-of-the-greatest-film-soundtracks-ever-1413951

The only ones I've listened to much are: Carlitos Way (disco funk various) and The End of Violence (Ry Cooder).

Currently streaming The Falcon and the Snowman soundtrack (Metheny), which inspired the thread.

Performance (Cooder/Jagger/Jack Nitzsche/Randy Newman/Merry Clayton) is one that doesn't crop up very often, is difficult to get hold of, and is rather good.

darkhorse - 08 Sep 2017 14:21:12 (#2 of 93)

As I have a three year old with me, I've switched the streaming to the "Where the Wild Things Are" album (Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Rather good so far.

Surprised Paris, Texas isn't in that NME list

HouseOfLammo - 08 Sep 2017 14:22:58 (#4 of 93)

Alfie.

Agaliarept - 08 Sep 2017 14:23:02 (#5 of 93)

My votes would've gone to two that didn't make the NME list.

Singles. AIC/ Mudhoney/ Soundgarden/ Pumpkins/ Screaming Treeshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles:_Original_Mo

Cable Guy: Silverchair/ Filter/ Curtis Mayfieldhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115798/soundtrack

Both great soundtracks.

As I have a three year old with me

They still wont pay the ransom eh DH?

:)

Jeez, they should pay me to keep her.

She was trying to shove a feather duster up my nose earlier.

popstar7 - 08 Sep 2017 14:28:04 (#7 of 93)

Straight Outta Compton definitely deserves a spot.

Moschops - 08 Sep 2017 14:29:01 (#8 of 93)

Troubleman is ace an' all.

TRaney - 08 Sep 2017 14:30:28 (#9 of 93)

Mmmmhmmmm

Haha! I have two year old who is obsessed with putting his fingers in my eyes. You have my sympathies :)

widenation - 08 Sep 2017 14:39:29 (#11 of 93)

No Morricone on that list either.

popstar7 - 08 Sep 2017 14:41:17 (#12 of 93)

I think they left out original scores. It's song collections.

Moschops - 08 Sep 2017 14:42:08 (#13 of 93)

Moon was an original score wasn't it?

widenation - 08 Sep 2017 14:42:43 (#14 of 93)

There are OSTs in there for sure.

popstar7 - 08 Sep 2017 14:42:51 (#15 of 93)

Fair enough, I just skimmed through.

Moschops - 08 Sep 2017 14:43:08 (#16 of 93)

Maybe, I just skimmed through.

The JTT way

popstar7 - 08 Sep 2017 14:43:26 (#17 of 93)

And then I edited.

toffle - 08 Sep 2017 14:50:17 (#18 of 93)

A collection of songs that get played during a film is not a soundtrack. Any unoriginal plagiarising cunt could one throw together in an afternoon, and frequently this is exactly what happens. A soundtrack ought to have some original compositions in it.

That said, favourite collection of songs used as music for a film: Repo Man OST.

Favourite actual original composition soundtracks: Ennio Morricone - For a Few Dollars More; Burt Bacharach - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Tenesmus - 08 Sep 2017 14:50:54 (#19 of 93)

Too many pop song compilations. Still, Dirty Harry and Shaft are there so that's ok.

And what toffle said.
