Best Soundtrack? - Page 2

post #16 of 195
There is no "best" soundtrack.

"Alien" - Jerry Goldsmith

I don't own a CD of this score but anytime I want to hear it I just pop in the 2004 CE DVD. Brilliant, easily my favorite score of all time.

Film: The Royal Tenenbaums (the extended second release complete with "Hey [Admin]")
Musical: Les Miserables (original broadway)

Is anyone else here a fan of Mothersbaugh's thematic contributions to Wes Anderson's films? I find them to be particularly enjoyable (especially his casio-based electronica in Life Aquatic - too hilarious)?

Soundtrack to the movie "Judgement Night"
Soundtrack to the movie "O'Brother Where Art Thou?"
Soundtrack to the movie "Garden State"
Soundtrack to the movie "City of Angels"
Soundtrack to the movie "Pulp Fiction"

Those would be some of my favorites

I really enjoyed the music from:
- Run Lola Run
- Requiem for a Dream

I haven't really played much attention to soundtracks tho...

Tarantino's movies.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

From Kitano's films, I really love Joe Hisaishi's Dolls and Hana-Bi soundtrack; he also wrote some great, great music for the Studio Ghibli movies

For perfectly cinematic music (even though it's not a soundtrack), try Lisa Gerrard's Immortal Memory

I was listening to the 2046 OST yesterday, too, some lovely tracks on there

"Alien" uses the 2nd Symphony (Romantic) of Howard Hanson at the end.

I think Paul Thomas Anderson and Wes Anderson both have great tastes in soundtracks. They pick songs that compliment the tone of the scene quite perfectly (like the firecracker scene in "Boogie Nights," just classic). That said, my favorite soundtrack is probably still "Star Wars" in terms of its originality, musicality, and memorability.

This is a very hard question. You love some soundtracks sometimes because of the outstanding sound effect, sometimes because you like the movie/musical/opera itself.

What come to my mind immediately are:

Schiendler's List (OST)
Breakfast at Tiffany's (OST)
Braveheart (OST)
Hero (OST)
Sound of Music (Original Cast)
Phantom of the Opera (Original Cast)
Jekyll and Hyde (Original Cast)
Camelot (Original Cast)

Garden State

One vote for Moulin Rouge. The movie is amazing, and the soundtrack emphasizes it.

The one favorite that is on my "Sleep and Relaxation" playlist that has not been mentioned is Contact (End Credits) by Alan Silvestri. This is so relaxing and calming.
