Description: Movies with the perfect complementary songs

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
The Virgin Suicides (1999)
  Inspired soundtrack from Air's Playground Love to Alone Again (Naturally) to Al Green adds to the sense of loneliness, isolation, and desparation; Cudos to Sophia Coppola (did I actually say that?) for picking out this soundtrack
Rushmore (Criterion Collection) (1998)
  Great matching of music with actors and scenes by Wes Anderson. Which gem did you end up singing after seeing this film? Ooh La La by The Faces for me.
Reservoir Dogs (Widescreen) (1992)
  From Stephen Wright announcing the monster truck rally featuring the Bohemiath to Stealers Wheel's Stuck in the Middle with You , these songs had you grinning from ear to ear.
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)
  What's great about this besides the phenomenal bluegrass songs, was the fact that this was basically a musical, but not in the MGM and Cop Rock sense of musical. Everyone is singing, and it makes perfect sense that they are.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
  Quentin Tarantino has a way with soundtracks; any movie with Kool & the Gang and Dusty Springfield has something right going on.
Magnolia (1999)
  Aimee Mann's Save Me, One, Momentum, along with the couple of songs by Supertramp, create a great and haunting soundtrack, which in many ways better conveys the mood and theme of the film than the images on the screen.
Conan the Barbarian (1982)
  Basil Poledouris's original soundtrack which includes tracks with names like "Anvil of Crom", "Tree of Woe", and "Orphans of Doom", is the perfect complements to the epic scope and visual flair of Milius's classic. Horses and trumpets racing to battle.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
  You may have known these work before (Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and Johann Strauss' "The Blue Danube"), but now, you can barely think of a few bars without picturing scenes from 2001
Bottle Rocket (Criterion) (1996)
  Another example of Wes Anderson's knack of matching songs with scenes. Rolling Stones's 2000 Man during the big caper chase is just about perfect.
The Commitments (1991)
  Motown soul in Dublin! Featuring covers of Wilson Pickett's Mustang Sally and In the Midnight Hour
This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
  "Big Bottom" "Sex Farm" "Sex Farm Woman" "Feel My Love Pump" - songs that are even funnier than their titles
Apocalypse Now (1979)
  Just for including Jim Morrison crooning.. "this is the end, my only friend, the end..." amongst helicopter and ritualistic offering...
Kingpin (1996)
  This movie gets on the list just for its use of Disco Inferno, but also should mention Blues Traveller, English Beat and Todd Rundgren
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
Not Rated
  From "Christmastime Is Here" to Vince Guaraldi's enduring "Linus and Lucy", is there a better holiday classic?
