Favorite Movie Soundtracks!

Recommended Posts

1.The Wedding Singer

2.Forrest Gump

3.Would "The Wall" be considered a soundtrack? I was unsure which came first...the album? Or the movie? If it IS a soundtrack...then I will have it on my list. ::

If not, my other favorite would be the "The Crow" soundrack.

1. Grosse Pointe Blank (Bowie, Violent Femmes, & G&R...kick ass!)

2. The Blues Brothers (Belushi!)

3. Grease (it is the word, you know)

(Bonus soundtrack) Dirty Dancing (she's like the wind...through my trees. Does it get better than that?)

The best TV soundtrack is for "New York Undercover". The album (or CD, I am showing my age) is called "A Night at Natalie's". Good R&B covers of old songs and some original tunes. Thumbs up!

OMG I CAN NOT BELIEVE I JUST READ THAT!!!! OMG!!

Weeks ago, Catherines post about Motown music ?, made me remember the absolute SMOOTH music from the TV show NEW YORK UNDERCOVER! I ended up buying the 'NY Undercover' soundtrack as soon as it came out (back in 1995!!!), but thought it was not even a close representation of music from the show. And I really hated that!! That music was so awesome and the greatest tragedy of that show is that they never paid homage to the beautiful talented singers on that show. Or so I thought.

Fast Forward to the year 2004, and because of Catherines post, I typed in "New York Undercover" on Amazon and discovered the follow up soundtrack to NYU, "A Night at Natalies". This 'musical honey' arrived on my doorstep on a warm spring day.... I cranked it up, put it on repeat, opened the windows and doors, and let the honey flow. Man, that was one sweet day! (I think I reinforced the fact that 'white men cant dance' because when I opened my windows and doors, my neighbors closed theirs!)

Peaches, THANKS for mentioning that CD! I was actually going to write a review on this CD but I dont think I will bother now. If you have ANY related songs or artists similar to this, please let me know! Thanks.

In addition to "Natalies" I have to add the following:

"Young Guns" Jon Bon Jovi was really inspired by this movie and made a lot of great tracks on this soundtrack.

Others are:

"singles"

"phenomenon"

and

"Romy and Micheles High School Reunion"

yeah yeah the movie sucked but the soundtrack had a lot of great 80's tunes.

I forgot about "Singles"! Love the movie and LOVE the soundtrack. Paul Westerberg is the man.

One of the most hilarious parts of the movie is where Cliff is singing to Janet's answering machine...

"Walking down the ave-new-ew-ew..." :laughing:

Who new Matt Dillon could be so damned funny?

Hmmm, off the top of my head I'd say:

- High five on The Wedding Singer :)

- Boys on the Side

- Labrynith

I'm also a big fan of Disney soundtracks! I think my preferences have a lot to do with having liked the movie and remembering it when listening to the soundtrack :thumbsup:

Any soundtrack from those John Hughes movies in the 80's. Pretty in Pink is the only one I own. The movies were about high school, and I was in high school at the time.

Less than Zero

The Saint, if you like that type of music, Orbital, Moby, Chemical Brothers, Sneaker Pimps

Stewart Copeland did the music for the TV show "The Equalizer" which I enjoyed. For me, he's second only to Neil Peart in terms of drummers.

Orgy, Poe, the Cranberries, Goo Goo Dolls, Crystal Method, Depeche Mode, and Michelle Branch have all appeared on the tv show Charmed. I know, the show is kind of stupid but it has good music. It also comes on at 8 in the morning on TNT and is a welcome distraction from the required watching of CNBC that goes on in my office. I've also been caught watching the ER and Law and Order reruns shown on that station each day.

I've bought the Yellow Submarine soundtrack in four different forms over a 20 year period.

The album of the soundtrack in the mid seventies

The CD in the late eighties

The VHS tape in the early nineties and

The DVD several years ago

So I suppose I liked that one also

Rocky Horror Picture Show has got to be on the top for me!

Then ill add School of Rock and Forrest Gump along with Pulp Fiction. Does anybody know why Freebird was in the movie Forrest Gump, but not on the soundtrack??
