Great Movie Soundtracks

May 25, 2009

AFTER coming home from watching Awaydays at FACT on Saturday I rather enthusiastically decreed that the film has the best soundtrack of all time.
True, it has some brilliant classics (Joy Division) and some highly desirable rarities (Cure outtake, pre-Midge Ultravox) however on second thoughts caling it the greatest of all time may be overstating the case somewhat.
But what are the best movie soundtracks of all time?
Here’s 10 to be getting on with.
24 Hour Party People
Grosse Point Blank
La Haine French was the language really invented for rap, or perhaps, vice versa
Do The Right Thing bit dated New Jack Swingy, apart from PE
The Harder They Come
Superfly Curtis, who else?
Shaft Isaac, who else?
This is Spinal Tap
Football Factory (shocking version of one of a great trilogy of books)

    Life Aquatic – Bowie classics get a hilarious Brazilian wax.Babel – no new wave classics (tho David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto stylish pop in), just great atmospherics and pounding ‘lectronica.

    Natural Born Killers, The best thing Trent Resnor has ever done, Sweet Jane by Cowboy Junkies, Waiting for the Miracle by Leonard Cohen and NWA on same soundtrack, its brilliant and makes me watch the quite frankly average film over and over again

    If we’re talking scores though I’d go with either Nick Cave’s Assasination of Jesse James or that bloke from Radiohead’s there will be blood

    8 mile – Lose yourself is one of my favourite tunes of all time and the whole album is class
