What is your favourite movie soundtrack?

I think the songs/music used in Donnie Darko was second to none, especially the opening track of the movie
"the killing moon" by Echo and the bunnymen.
Real shame they couldn't afford to use these songs in an official soundtrack we could have bought. Saying that, the score is quite good, which you can buy.

"Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream it takes over as the number one hormone. It bosses the enzymes, directs the pineal gland, plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to Film is more Film." - Frank Capra

The novelist does not long to see the lion eat grass. He realizes that one and the same God created the wolf and the lamb, then smiled, "seeing that his work was good".


They had temporarily escaped the factories, the warehouses, the slaughterhouses, the car washes - they'd be back in captivity the next day but
now they were out - they were wild with freedom. They weren't thinking about the slavery of poverty. Or the slavery of welfare and food stamps. The rest of us would be all right until the poor learned how to make atom bombs in their basements.

Get Low, Get Low, Get Low
I will have to agree with you Pidd, I own that soundtrack and it's really good.

Wedding Singer soundtrack is also good

One soundtrack that I was a bit disappointed in is Ghost Dog - The Soundtrack by RZA. The score of the film is brilliant and the songs on the cd are based on the score but is not even close to the marvellous things you hear when you see the film. That's probably one of the best scores ever.

MY vote definitely goes to either Wayne's World 1 or 2. They both have a lot of classic tunes. And they really match with the feel of the movies.

I must become Caligari..!

It's a god-awful small affair, To the girl with, the mousy hair, But her mummy is yelling "No", and her daddy has told her to go, But her friend is nowhere to be seen, Now she walks through her sunken dream, To the seat with the clearest view, And she's hooked to the silver screen, But the film is a saddening bore, For she's lived it ten times or more...

I'm not old, you're just 12.

Grosse Pointe Blank
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Once More With Feeling

Nope… sorry… I have both movies on Video and DVD (still need to pick up the re-mix of Empire though)… and I have the Empire soundtrack which led me to buy all of Toad the Wet Sprocket’s CD’s because of their song Crazy Life (do you know what that song is about?)… and I also have the Dazed and Confused soundtrack plus More Dazed and Confused… I grew up on all those songs… especially Alice Cooper and Lynyrd Skynyrd… My Dad was a major fan of both…
