Re: best movie soundtracks

Some love for John Barry of course 'On Her Majestys Secret Service' is my fave....... The propulsive action tracks are amazing but 'Journey To Blofelds Hideaway' takes the old breath away...

Re: best movie soundtracks

I love film soundtracks! I probably get most of my musical exposure through films these days. Here are some of my favourites, sometimes I listen to them on their own, sometimes I think they only work within the film.

Krysztof Komeda - knife in the water: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVNRS_DiHZY I like all of Komeda's soundtrack stuff really. I went through a period about 4 or 5 years ago when I listened to him all the time.

Andrzej Korzy?ski - Diabel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxQmJHglMbU Great (and batshit crazy) soundtrack! Like Komeda and Polanski, Korzynski and Zulawski really worked well together. I can't find a clip with enough music in it, but this gives you an idea, Evil sounding proto-industrial with a ROCK vibe.

Alan Price - O Lucky Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK3P97RfVaI Great soundtrack, never felt like listening to it outside the film though.

Ennio Morricone - Cold Eyes Of Fear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnWC8FTW4Hs Another absolutely insane soundtrack the totally works.

Ennio Morricone - Investigation Of A Citizen Above Suspicion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_h_4_xFcb0 Heightens the completely surreal atmosphere in this film.

Billy Green - Stone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-dYsMmWqOU I really like this one, been listening to it quite a bit recently.

Willie Hutch - Foxy Brown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMe7wBi13ho Didn't leave my turntable for weeks!

Roy Ayers - Coffy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9X1Jkv48po One of Roy's best albums.

Michael Nyman - Drowning By Numbers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwyhRTPxGnI Another I wouldn't particularly listen outside the film, but I do love the soundtrack to this puzzle-filled and darkly comic Greenaway film. Another good Director-Composer partnership.

Re: best movie soundtracks

i keep forgetting to grab the Death Wish and Death Wish II soundtracks (by Herbie Hancock and Jimmy Page respectively) so hopefully posting this here will remind me to hunt them down when I get home tonight.

Re: best movie soundtracks

Italy wins osts - just so many bangers, where do they get it from? Maybe its the fucking cocaine and cool bikes maybe its the masculinity. Either way a bit of jazz over the top of a shooting is always good. Can anyone else play the trumpet as well as I can? Think I'm grade 5.

Re: best movie soundtracks

Italian supremacy. Love the Milano Calibro 9 soundtrack:

Just picked up Assault on Precinct 13 LP, the first Death Waltz thing I've gotten because I just couldn't resist. Classic beyond words.

Rewatched Legend of Hell House the other day, had forgotten what a great pulsating (Delia Derbyshire) soundtrack it has

Also watched Black Caesar, which definitely has the best of the James Brown and JB's blaxsploitation scores. Also, I listen to Curtis - Superfly LP on a weekly basis.

Also a big fan of Morricone's non-spaghetti stuff:

Re: best movie soundtracks

Jerry Goldsmith - The Omen

We're so used to it, it's hard to appreciate just how remarkable, effective and original it was in it's day. On the documentary with the box set you get some background on just how amazing and meticulous its construction was. Jerry Goldsmith did a lot of great work elsewhere too. Won a deserved Oscar.

Found a UK copy on vinyl, totally treasured!

Re: best movie soundtracks

Most of my favourite have been bandied around (Carpenter?vangelis goodness, Italprog, etc.),

I'll add the RZA - Ghost Dog  and Air Virgin Suicide OST, also love Ghost In The Shell's soundtrack....

Re: best movie soundtracks

CLUELESS. But this mix that I put together awhile back of the originals (the soundtrack uses covers)...

http://www.mediafire.com/download/sqzgs … UELESS.zip

Kim Wilde - Kids in America
David Bowie - Fashion
Flaming Groovies - Shake Some Action
Lightning Seeds - Change
Robert Hazard - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Radiohead - My Iron Lung
Jill Sobule - Supermodel
Supergrass - Alright
Velocity Girl - Forgotten Favorite
Mott the Hoople - All the Young Dudes
General Public - Tenderness
Smoking Popes - Need You Around

However, I should have put the Cyndi Lauper version of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Also does not include Mighty Mighty Bosstones, that was intentional though...

Re: best movie soundtracks

Thought I'd resurrect this thread as I nearly started a new one. Would back most of the ones mentioned (carpenter, morricone, goblin etc) and add a few from recent years:

Ex Machina
Cold in July
Under the Skin
Room 237
Drive

Probably loads more but those immediately spring to mind as being the most notable aspects of the respective movies

Re: best movie soundtracks

under the skin is a great shout.

thought oblivion's score was pretty great.

Re: best movie soundtracks

Is it really lame that I love the 'Ordinary People' soundtrack so much? Especially the main theme from the opening sequence, proper bangin' soap opera vibez. Gets me every time, fuck it.

Also, well into the soundtracks to 'Taxi Driver', 'Once Upon A Time In America', 'RoboCop', 'Paris, Texas', 'Cape Fear' (original) and loads of other stuff that I'll think of at some point.

EDIT: 'Dark City' soundtrack really sets the scene nicely, too.

Putting the chat amongst the pigeons.

Re: best movie soundtracks

The Johann Johannsson one for Sicario was great.

Really liked the Alva Noto/Ryuichi Sakamoto one for The Revenant as well. Although i'd love almost anything those two did together.

This is from a John Carpenter tribute album but is really great:
