Three Favorite Soundtracks...

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

These are really scores, not soundtracks:

Gattaca - Michael Nyman's finest work

The Piano - Michael Nyman's 2nd finest work

Funny, I really hate most of Nyman's other work. See, e.g. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, which is a beautiful film about some really awful people and has a rather obnoxious score.

I'm going to try to stick to soundtracks, as opposed to scores.

A Night at the Roxbury - I have a soft spot for jokes with (pop)musical cues, so really, there's no contest here. The sudden inclusion of R.E.M's Everybody Hurts after a near relentless string of 1990s dance hits is comedy gold.

Garden State - Just fantastic song choices, and one that I turn to again and again, even outside of the movie.

Rushmore - Although there are some fun originial compositions for the movie, it's the pre-existing sixities tracks that really shine. The Kinks, Cat Stevens, The Faces, that's good listenin'.
