    I'm looking for movie soundtrack CD's. IMO, "That's The Way of the World" by E,W,&F, "Purple Rain" by Prince, and "Shaft" by Issac Hayes set the bar REALLY high.
  2. Superfly's up there, along with Shaft.

    I really liked "Road to Perdition"'s soundtrack.I also liked "Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels" ST.

    Oh God! I forgot about "Superfly" and "Claudine" both by Mr. Mayfield. "Coffey" by Roy Ayers was pretty good also.

    You know...what movie used That's The Way Of The World? I need to see it. ;)

    You mention Shaft...I gotta mention Curtis Mayfields' Superfly.

    Hair...I need to get this. What version is "the better"?
    Jesus Christ Superstar(BOTH the "Original Cast" w/ Deep Purple's Ian Gillan & the soundtrack versions).
    Death Wish-Herbie Hancock
    Saturday Night Fever-Various

    I also like the soundtrack to Forrest Gump...a nice selection of '60s/'70s Pop(IMO) that totally works for this movie. Fact is...everytime I hear one of these tunes, I can recall just about where in the movie it was used.
    "For What It's Worth"?
    "Love Her Madly"?
  6. Immortal Beloved
  7. The good, the bad and the ugly (Ennio Morricone)

    something tells me Metallica liked this one too :D

    Some really great titles offered up so far. (Hey, "phreaky". I loved Air's work on The Virgin Suicides, too.)

    I'd like to offer up the soundtrack to the movie "Whale Music". Canadian mind-rockers The Rheostatics produced some really great gems for this one.

    "Clockwork Orange", not only for the Classical music, but also the originals composed and played by Walter(now Wendy) Carlos on the Moog. Pretty interesting sounds.

    Also, "Buffalo 66". "Heart of the Sunrise", by YES, and songs by Vincent Gallo.

  17. A Hard Day's Night- By far the best 'Beatlemania' period album the Beatles did.

    Saturday Night Fever- Okay, it was the album that really corporatized the Disco movement but it was a great album for it's time. Hasn't held up as well as maybe it should.
  18. Does quadrophenia count.

    I also really love the song in requiem for a dream, which was also used in the preview for lord of the rings

    "Dirty Harry" has always been one of my favourites.

    Woodchuck, I'm surprised you didn't mention "you gotta talk it like you walk it (or else you lose that beat)" ;)

    The soundtrack to "Hair" is great. Probably some of the best basslines of the 70s.

    Favorite Rock soundtrack- the stuff did for "Highlander" is great.

    Personally, I like the soundtrack to "Slaughterhouse Five." Of course, it's Glenn Gould playing Bach, so how bad can it be?
