Title: What Is Your Favorite Soundtrack?
Post by: rab2591 on June 28, 2011, 06:03:59 PM
I've really been into film scores and soundtracks lately...

Could be orchestral scores, or pop music soundtracks (Magical Mystery Tour), etc.

My favorite orchestral score (has been since I was a kid) would have to be James Horner's score from Apollo 13.
As of now my favorite soundtrack would have to be the soundtrack to 'Thicker Than Water' - a surf film by Jack Johnson.

Anyone else out there have a favorite soundtrack???

I like the American Graffiti soundtrack, Vanishing point soundtrack, James Bond themes,easy rider, wes anderson films, italian westerns (the good,the bad, and the ugly), and Pet Sounds ( Soundtrack to Brian Wilson's life).

Easy Rider & American Graffiti soundtracks :thumbsup

Ennio Morricone did a great film score for 'Mission To Mars' - probably my second favorite film score. Such great music!

Did not know Ennio Morricone did mission to mars soundtrack, guess i need to watch that movie again to hear the soundtrack closely. All Summer Long and Ballad of Easy Rider were both amazing ending songs to a movie.

Taxi Driver by Bernhard Hermann (sp?). He's the guy that did all those hitchcock films, but this is his best (and last. he died the night he finished recording it) at least for me.  I think I like it 'cos it sort of reminds me of Smile with it's weird percussion and recurring theme(s). Check it out if you haven't yet.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1UBfv7mh_s&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1UBfv7mh_s&feature=related)

Definitely listen to the last two minutes of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hql-U8Okheg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hql-U8Okheg) - Morricone did a phenomenal job with this score (this is probably my favorite individual piece of instrumental music I have heard - save Beethoven's 7th, In The Back Of My Mind, and Vivaldi's L'Estro Armonico Op. 3 concerto No. 10).

Also, I created a thread a while back regarding musical influences for SMiLE and Morricone's work came up as a possible definite influence.

Easy Rider has been one of my favorites ever since I saw it. That soundtrack is incredible. I remember listening to the commentary by Dennis Hopper and he said he almost had another band do the whole score (I think it was Crosby, Stills, and Nash) but then, thankfully, decided against it.

Completely forgot about Empire of the Sun - Cadillac of the Skies is a definite top 5 favorite score songs for me.

Also, is your first choice from 'The Shawshank Redemption'? I can't remember but the name is awfully familiar.


Title: Re: What Is Your Favorite Soundtrack?
Post by: pixletwin on June 29, 2011, 07:28:57 AM
The bit from Shawshank is from Marriage of Figaro and is not actually on the soundtrack to Amadeus. But Shawshank is also a lovely soundtrack. I hadn't thought about that one.

John Williams' soundtrack to "Hook" is an absolute favorite. Fantastic piece of work. It's dramatic, romantic, innocent and childlike, plus there are moments of pure beauty. I'm wondering if Brian would do soundtracks of this kind if it would sound lke this.

As for Pop-soundtracks:

That's the way it is - Elvis Presley (King Creole if you talk about feature films, in fact there are a lot good soundtracks by Presley)
Little Faus and Big Halsey - Johnny Cash & Carl Perkins
Great balls of fire - Jerry Lee Lewis
I like Magical Mystery Tour much, much better than the awful movie. American Graffiti is a classic f course

I love the music in Two Lane Blacktop but it never had an official soundtrack afaik

That would be Bernard Herrmann, but, yes, he was brilliant and a favorite of mine. He really introduced the leitmotif to film scoring where a certain theme or phrase would be repeated (sometimes in a nearly unrecognizable variation) to link scenes with ones seen earlier in the film or draw attention to actions that have resonance later. This is now the standard way to score a film, but Herrmann pioneered this approach with CITIZEN KANE (pay close attention and Herrmann's score will actually reveal the mystery of "Rosebud" within the first 15 minutes of the film). He also liked to work with artificially-imposed restrictions such as his famous score for PSYCHO which only features stringed instruments.

As far as modern film composers go, I adore the work of Carter Burwell. He handles much of the Coen Brothers' films and he always displays a very light but memorable touch.

If we're talking a soundtrack made up of popular songs, I still think Simon and Garfunkel's work on THE GRADUATE is phenomenal. Scorsese always chooses just the right tunes to make his films work (think about how Frank Sinatra is used near the beginning of GOODFELLAS and Sid Vicious' take on "My Way" is used at the end). I also think the films of Paul Thomas Anderson use songs exceptionally well as does Cameron Crowe's.

I've been wanting to get the soundtrack to Hook for a while now - one of my favorite movies as a kid.

And funny enough I don't remember any of the music in Two Lane Blacktop....I'll have to watch that again soon enough.

Zappa's 200 Motels, Herrmann's Psycho. I recently heard some of the soundtrack to this film noir called "Dementia", by the iconoclast American composer George Antheil, and was floored (although he outright stole sections from Rite Of Spring!)

My votes:
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Jon Brion
- The English Patient
- Scrooge - Leslie Bricusse (lonnnnnng OOP, dangit)
- AI - John Williams - I could hardly believe this was him when I saw the credits--I usually associate him with more over the top, blockbuster themes, but this was really subtle and beautiful--really helped make the movie work.
- Gizmo! - various artists. OK, there's no album for this, but all those funky, 70s, one-hit-wonder type pop songs were great. And those artists vanished in obscurity. Plus--what a fun little film. Nearly impossible to find.

2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Once Upon A Time In The West
Mean Streets----great use of pop songs, as elsewhere in Scorsese's stuff

There must be more but those four come readily to mind...

[Later]
Carrington----Michael Nyman and a dash of Schubert
More and La Vallée----not least, but by means not only, because they necessarily don't have Mr Waters'----dare I say it?----cynicism splashed all over them
Koyaanisqatsi and particularly Powaqqatsi----music by Philip Glass

I must confess to not actually having seen the last four films----for which my apologies----I just love the music.

That excerpt from Morricone's music for Mission to Mars is simply stunning...

Lotsa great mid-60s hits -- but I tried to watch this flick on DVD the other day.  Made it about half way -- very disappointing.  Also a few anachronisms such as "Jumping Jack Flash" in 1966!  Nonetheless, when the BBs play ("Little saint Nick"), it's a good movie for a few minutes.

I think I`m partial to that movie becausd I was a radio/mass communication major and frequently on-air in college. I`m bugged more by Phillip Seymour Hoffman holding the mic and putting it right on his mouth (he must be a fan of unessecary noise and distortion/overmodulation) than by the filmmakers` song choices.

I found this film to be terrible. One of the biggest disappointments I've experienced in recent years only because I actually thought the film would be about the pirate radio station(s) that operated outside of London in the 60s. Instead, it is simply PORKY'S on a boat. If the storyline about trying to get a teenager laid sounds good to you (and you can stomach Kenneth Branagh calling out for "Mr. Twatt" repeatedly like a tiresome schoolboy), then maybe you'll have some laughs. I think the cast is great, but they're given very little here that's amusing.

The musical anachronisms go way beyond "Jumpin' Jack Flash"; one of the DJs actually plays a Cat Stevens' song from 1970 even though you're reminded at the film's end that the events shown all take place in 1966.

I feel like much of what Jon Brion did in Eternal Sunshine, especially the Peer Pressure track, was lifted from this track by James Horner.
I also feel that much Thomas Newman's style come from this track. You can listen to his soundtrack to Road to perdition and that style is very much present in Horner's Field of dreams  :(

The score to Dead Man by Neil Young. Been a Jarmusch fan for years and have recently started to swear by Neil Young, so it's nice when 2 things overlap in such a way. The soundtrack to this works better in the context of the film, imo. It's mostly improvised, Neil solo on a guitar. It's a shame the intro/end credits theme wasn't included in the soundtrack because it's such a haunting piece.

You're smart. Indeed, movies with boring script/ liked in the past - at least they've got great music. Related, years ago the TV rolled the ads of various films to see this week, when "King Solomon's Mines" showed, I liked hearing the main music. The movie's cheap copy of "Indiana Jones" (adventure chap with insufferable girl).
Mentioned b4 "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl". It's about girl Kit & her fam & neighbors during 1930s dealing with Great Depression in Cincinnati. Joseph Vitarelli did the score which sounds very of-the-times, light jazz & to my ears done very professionally. Besides, there is retro music, as well as remakes of it covered by current artists. It's tasteful & fits the narrative.
"Coffee & Cigarettes" - begins with "Louie Louie" by Richard Berry, the favorite & the best version. Tom Waits didn't like the script his good ole buddy director Jim Jarmusch gave. His dialog bits. He didn't get the sense of humor. Then Jim changed/added the lines & Tom's up for it, written song "Saw Sage". The best track Modern Jazz Quartet "Baden Baden".
"Miss Marple" - Ken Howard & Alan Blaikley.
"Song of the South" (1946) - "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah". It's big favorite since 19 when 1st watched this Disney picture. Uncle Remus sings.

I'd seen this film long time ago & liked it, way before L&M. I listed it in favorite movies but no mention here as I didn't care for the soundtrack. It's the type of film in which I like the film itself & dislike the score. That said, I like the song the girl dances to, MC Hammer.

Currently digging the Pirate Radio soundtrack.

Lotsa great mid-60s hits -- but I tried to watch this flick on DVD the other day.  Made it about half way -- very disappointing.  Also a few anachronisms such as "Jumping Jack Flash" in 1966!  Nonetheless, when the BBs play ("Little saint Nick"), it's a good movie for a few minutes.

I still have to check that one out. I'm not much into movies or TV anymore, so when I do watch I make sure it's worth it - thus I've been putting off Pirate Radio because of the iffy reviews.

I found this film to be terrible. One of the biggest disappointments I've experienced in recent years only because I actually thought the film would be about the pirate radio station(s) that operated outside of London in the 60s. Instead, it is simply PORKY'S on a boat. If the storyline about trying to get a teenager laid sounds good to you (and you can stomach Kenneth Branagh calling out for "Mr. Twatt" repeatedly like a tiresome schoolboy), then maybe you'll have some laughs. I think the cast is great, but they're given very little here that's amusing.

The musical anachronisms go way beyond "Jumpin' Jack Flash"; one of the DJs actually plays a Cat Stevens' song from 1970 even though you're reminded at the film's end that the events shown all take place in 1966.

I didn't make it to the Cat Stevens song!  Anyway, you nailed it "Porky's on a boat."  I am a big radio fan, particularly concerning renegade voices and forbidden music, and this really had nothing to do with any of that.  Rote, by the numbers, etc.

I ADORE The Boat That Rocked! One of my favourite films of all time, with one of my favourite soundtracks of all time!

The anachronisms in song choice is a minor issue yeah, but it doesn't bother me too much. Still great music regardless. That said, I've heard nothing but bad things about the Pirate Radio edit which is quite bastardised apparently.

Anyway, I'd also add American Graffiti and Animal House as soundtracks that I love, each containing brilliant tracks from the 50s and early 60s

Well the songs I quite liked which I either discovered or was pleasantly surprised to hear include "Runaway" by Del Shannon and "Green Onions" by Booker T And The MG's on American Graffiti and "Let's Dance" by Chris Montez and "Hey Paula" by Paul And Paula on Animal House. As for recent movies.... I'd really have to think about that. But as scores go, I really like the one that was used for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, which I found very effective and at times moving.

Forgot to mention that I'm also very fond of the soundtrack to the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby - which was one of the best aspects of the movie for me.... and they had to go and ruin it all on the DiCaprio version of the film, of which I've seen a few clips but am not keen on checking out

The soundtrack to Once Upon A Time In America: Ennio Morricone.

I saw the film when it was released in the cinema and the film remains to this day my all-time favorite.

I bought the LP the following week and the CD when it was released with an extra fifteen minute Suite.

It was the perfect marriage of film and score. The Ladd company was winding down at the time the film was released and they forgot to enter the score for The Oscars. It would have walked away with it.

If you've never seen this film, seek it out. It's a cult classic ...

The movie comes on quite frequently on our classic movie channel but I don't usually watch it since the screen on my telly is so tiny. This movie screams to be shown on the big screen and I hope it will be again .

True, E. Nothing beats the big screen when it comes to Lawrence of Arabia. It's the only way to get the full impact of "the desert". There's a stunning analysis of this film across the road--I'll see if I can find it some time and link it.

Thanks for forwarding these analyses. Lawrence is one of the most fascinating people of the 20th century . I still read articles debating "what really happened at Deraa?"
In the movie I think it was Bently who asked Sherif Ali "what happened to Lawrence at Deraa?" and he replied something like " he's still a man, humbled. "
His life after going back home is especially fascinating.

 as for the movie, I had seen untold numbers of movies starring Peter O'Toole so knew he would be good, but he just blew me away.
As I said, I saw the movie numerous times in the movie theater. One time the scene played where he was racing his motorcycle up a hill in the left lane . a lady in the audience shouted out, "that's why he died - he was in the wrong lane !"  :P
