Damn Fine Soundtracks (from popular to obscure)

Magic Lemur
The list author says: "Love soundtracks, but there are a lot of lemons that are just publicity for the film.

This however is the best ones I've found..."

"Simply the best soundtrack ever! A perfect blend of miserable & joyful music that is deeply moving & enhances the movie greatly."
Trainspotting: Music From The Motion Picture
Trainspotting: Music From The Motion Picture
"An excellent soundtrack that I'd almost say was almost better than the film (if it weren't for its ending!)"
Jackie Brown: Music From The Miramax Motion Picture (1997 Film)
Jackie Brown: Music From The Miramax Motion Picture (1997 Film)
"Better than Pulp Fiction & crammed with fine 60's/70's R'n'B. I have seen several examples of tracks off here, used on TV & shows, which the songs never fail to add depth to..."
Music from and Inspired by Easy Rider

"Expected I know, & over-rated to some extend, but still an excellent soundtrack with an ethos that makes it near peerless..."
The Blues Brothers: Original Soundtrack Recording
The Blues Brothers: Original Soundtrack Recording
"Another cliche, but still worthy. This made absolutely no sense to me as a kid but, having seen the movie, it is a compelling selection."
Monty Python Sings

"Several soundtracks in one & a 'best of' in all but name. But the songs from the movies were the best ones, right?"
Saturday Night Fever

"Have to have this one on the list, don't I? OK, I don't & this soundtrack is far better in anticipation, but it does have some fine songs on it (including the irresistable 'Stayin Alive'!)"
Forrest Gump: The Soundtrack - 32 American Classics On 2 CDs by Various Artists (1994) - Soundtrack

"Was popular @ school & is popular now too (5,651 Sales rank!) Kind of like a best of the 60's/70's, even if the film is a bit of a tearjerker..."
Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider
"A surprisingly good soundtrack, though not used to best effect in the film. Thought it'd be just heavy metal but has much, much more..."
Shaun Of The Dead

"As the 'Spaced' soundtrack is out of print, this is the nearest thing & it is great too, with fantastic dialogue & good versions of the songs (unlike so many soundtracks...)"
Ali G Indahouse: Da Soundtrack
Ali G Indahouse: Da Soundtrack
"Sticking with great comedy, this soundtrack similarly uses the best dialogue from the film. However, this one also uses some of the best Ali G songs & fully captures the coolness of his zenith."
Good Morning Vietnam: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Good Morning Vietnam: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
"A third comedy-dialogue soundtrack. Some laugh-out-loud pieces of dialogue with some excellent 60's/70's songs that really raise dampened spirits."
Human Traffic
Human Traffic
"Like Marmite - either love it or hate it. I personally think the 1st CD of this is incredible, though the second CD is a little bland (except for 'Diving Faces' & Primal Scream of course.) Btw, if you think the UK is identical to the US, then this is an example of what makes the two worlds apart..."
Go: Music From The Motion Picture
Go: Music From The Motion Picture
"The American sister film to Human Traffic, but different in its music. Has 'Magic Carpet Ride' by Steppenwolf & many other curiosities..."
8 Mile: Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture
8 Mile: Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture
"An excellent film. Soundtrack only has two Eminem tracks worth listening to ('8 Mile road' & 'Run Rabbit'), but there's only one track that makes it worthwhile..."
Shallow Grave: Music From The Motion Picture
Shallow Grave: Music From The Motion Picture
"A dark but superb selection which excel the film. Some surprises too, such as 'Strip the Willow' & 'Happy Heart' by Andy Williams."
The Beach: Motion Picture Soundtrack by Blur and Mory Kante (2000) - Soundtrack

"The last truly great Danny Boyle soundtrack (besides those already listed - 1, 2 & 16). Though the film is annoying, this CD has more to it than first appears..."
Snatch: Stealin' Stones & Breakin' Bones
Snatch: Stealin' Stones & Breakin' Bones
"Guy Ritchie (Madonna's ex-husband)'s 2nd film. Actually better than 'Lock, Stock...' and with a dark & satisfying premise that has not been repeated in his other films..."
Goodfellas: Music From The Motion Picture
Goodfellas: Music From The Motion Picture
"Some dud tracks, but adds to the film rather than detracts from it. Last 4 tracks are especially worthwhile."
Beverly Hills Cop: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack
Beverly Hills Cop: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack
"Great selection of 80's songs (e.g. 'Stir it Up') & the original version of a great song (before the crazy frog got hold of it!)"
Bill and Teds Bogus Journey

"Worth it for 'Battle Stations' and 'God Gave Rock and Roll to you' alone..."
The Matrix: Music From The Motion Picture

"Easily forgotten, but is as good as the film. 'Du Hast' & 'Spybreak' are real boons."

"Heard this before seeing the episode & it is perfection, even though it's just a spin-off..."

"As the last word, my favourite film which the soundtrack could not have added to or detracted from. OK, it's less than 40 minutes, but worth it for the ethos. Btw, if u like this 1, try very best of.."
