author topic: Soundtracks and Scores

Just a place to sound off about your favorite soundtracks or scores.

Some of the better known Rock soundtracks I can think of would be for Singles and The Crow (which had a pretty decent score as well).

As for some lesser known soundtracks, I really like the music for Crime and Punishment in Suburbia which was produced by Mr. Frank Black. Which reminds me... the pixies are reuniting and currently on tour!!! Yay! Too bad I can't afford to go...

As for scores, I love the score to Hero and to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. And also Mononoke Hime, but there are already anime soundtrack threads lurking about like ninjas, so I'll leave that alone for the time being.

Which reminds me, I used to want to listen to the "Judgement Night" soundtrack really bad, but--having never seen the movie--when I finally got to hear a couple songs from it years later, I was so disappointed I decided I never even wanted to see the movie. The soundtrack was a little more hyped than the movie and if that didn't say anything about the quality of that film, than I don't know what did.

I also recall trying desperately to hunt down a copy of the soundtrack for "The Chase." Kinda glad I didn't though, as I think I ended up with most of the songs off that soundtrack on their original CD's. I think getting the Repo Man soundtrack might be worth it though...

oops! ...well then, this is the new thread... I guess...

I Like the Rushmore and Royal Tennenbaums soundtracks. I'm thinkin' The Life Aquatic will have some good tunes as well!

Easily overlooked soundtracks:

The soundtrack for Hackers was the virtual wink and grin that I needed as final evidence that the people making the movie knew it was over the top. Well, that and my first glimpse of Angelina Jolie, I guess.

I also liked the music from Wargames, though I doubt they ever made an album from it. And Tron. Of course, I was still a preteen when they came out, so maybe I was just easily impressed.
