I kept the List relatively short as there are just way too many different Albums from Movies, TV and even Video Games to pick from. That's why you have the 'Other (Leave Comment)' option for anything else that is not on the list. Feel free to post all Soundtrack / Musical Score albums in this thread.

I'll have to think about this.

Off the top of my head, I know I've cobbled together all the tracks from all the Godfather movies. I don't listen to them much, but they are engrained in my head so much, I can hear the songs now.

Soundtrack to The Godfather

I'm currently in the middle of watching my Survivor (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/survivor-borneo-(season-1-2000)/msg8363/#msg8363) DVD Marathon and once again, the music from the show invades my brain to the point where that's all I can hum for days. So, I might as well feed the addiction and bust out the Season 1 CD. I think it's a crime that not many people talk about the music as it seems like it's viewed as an afterthought, which is a shame because the music really is the star of the show. Having said that, this album is far from perfect. There are a couple of stinkers that do not belong here and would have been better served to remain in the dust bin.

There are a couple of songs that absolutely rock and those are Ancient Voices, better known as the Theme Song and Tally The Vote, which they play during Tribal Council. I could listen to both of these songs forever. I think I will just play these on a loop for the rest of the day. I feel VERY tribal today!! Ha.

Fave Songs: Ancient Voices and Tally The Vote

I for the most part have not singled out soundtrack music. And I'm talking about the orchestral stuff. While its beautiful and a major player in the film, I've never sat down to listen to a soundtrack.

I'm starting to think of movies where certain songs just grab me. The Lion King. The Little Mermaid. Etc

You never bought a John Williams score for any number of movies (Star Wars, Indy, ET, etc....)? Hell man, if I loved the movie...like it was one of those out of body type experiences, usually the music/score was a big part of that experience and I would head straight to the record store once I exited the theater to grab me my copy.

Bugsy Malone Soundtrack (1976)
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Bugsy%20Malone%20500x500/1976BugsyMalone.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Bugsy%20Malone%20500x500/1976BugsyMaloneBack.jpg)


This is my most prized Vinyl because of the lengths I went to get me a copy. Long story short, it took me years to find a copy from the last time I saw it in a record store, around 1980-81 (this was long before there was an eBay). Anyway, I finally found a copy at the San Diego Comic Con in 1996. One guy wanted 120 bucks for a mint condition in its factory seal wrap. Another vendor had it for 45 bucks a few booths down. I picked that one up instead.

Love the movie. Love the music even more. For those that don't know, music and lyrics are by Paul Williams. If you don't know who he is, go and watch Smokey And The Bandit. He is Little Enos. Contrary to popular legend regarding the music, the kids do not sing on this, nor do they do in the movie. The actual performers are Paul Williams, Archie Hahn, Julie McWirder, and Liberty Williams.

I will admit that when I saw this movie when it was in the theater, I did think that Scott Baio, Jodie Foster and all the other kids in the movie were actually singing, as in it was their actual voices I was hearing. I just thought they had the incredible ability to alter and change their pitch to make themselves sound a bit older. Hey, I was just a tiny kid and didn't know any better. Cut me some slack!!!

Fave Songs: All of 'em. There isn't one song I can do without. Need 'em all. Okay, now if I had to choose, like gun to head, I guess I would say Bugsy Malone, Bad Guys, Down and Out and Good Guys/Give A Little Love. Bah! I can't exclude the others! So, I gotta add Fat Sam's Grand Slam, Tomorrow, I'm Feelin' Fine, My Name Is Tallulah. So You Wanna Be A Boxer and Ordinary Fool.

Love the Album cover. I'm not fond of the back cover that I posted. I couldn't find a pic of the actual Vinyl release of the back cover. The one posted is from the CD. As for the back of the CD, it's similar to the one on the Vinyl, but it's missing a big chunk of text as well as having a different design element to the how the images are laid out. Oh well......

This album just makes me feel good and want to dance the 'dance' as seen in Bad Guys from the movie....

Stillwater (Self-Titled) 1973
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Stillwater/1973Stillwater.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/Stillwater/1973StillwaterBack.jpg)


I remember the first time I saw Stillwater live at the San Diego Sports Arena opening up for Black Sabbath. They were un-f*cking-believable in how good the songs where and how they just absolutely owned the crowd that night. Now, I had heard of Stillwater prior to going to see them that night, but I hadn't really invested any time into learning about the band or their music. That all changed that night, watching them Live. I became an immediate fan and I even tried to sneak backstage to see if I could meet Russell Hammond, who I considered to be a far superior guitar player than Jimmy Page and I also wanted to meet Jeff Bebe because I thought he had an amazing voice, one of the best ever. Robert Plant? I don't think so. What ended up happening is that I met some chick. Can't remember her name, I believe it was Penny. Maybe she's the reason why I named the forum 'Penny Can', as in 'Penny can call me whenever she wants......'.

Anyway, we got to talking about Stillwater when I discovered that she was a Band Aid. I got scared and ran away, bumping into some kid with a notepad or something. He was a  d i c k . He didn't even apologize to me at all. What a  d o u c h e !! Long story short, I've been a fan of Stillwater since that day and scared of groupies, er....I mean Band Aids since that day as well. You can check out my review of the actual show over in the Almost Famous: Untitled (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/almost-famous-untitled-(2000)/msg1747/#msg1747) thread.

Ha. All jokes aside, I do love fake bands that are in movies and this one is one of the best ever in creating a fictional band. But unlike a lot of fake band / movies, the music absolutely ROCKS on its own merit. I can easily put this Stillwater EP up against anything by "legit" bands and singers being put out over the last 20 years. No lie. Great songs and great musicanship.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But my top 2 picks go to Hour Of Need and Love Comes And Goes. Amazing songs!!!! Loooooooooove them both.

If you've seen the movie Almost Famous, ya already heard 'em. Not to be confused with another band of the same name. Black Sabbath on the other hand...FAKE!!!

go (The Motion Picture Soundtrack) 1999
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_04star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers/go%20500x500/1999go.jpg)


Like all soundtracks that have come before and will come after, they mark the time of what the music landscape was like at that given time. This is no exception here. If anything, this one brings back a lot of memories for me as this was around the time that I was heavy into the club and rave scene and there were a few choice cuts on the soundtrack. I originally got this specifically for a couple of songs after I saw go (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/go-(1999)/msg9301/#msg9301). The songs in question were for New by No Doubt (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/no-doubt-discography/msg397/#msg397) because this was the only way to get the lastest from the band. The other songs that I wanted were Steal My Sunshine by Len, Magic Carpet Ride by Philip Steir and the song that opens the movie, Fire Up The Shoesaw by Lionrock, which is the one song that takes me back to those clubbing days more than any other.

This is actually a pretty good collection of songs that all mesh well with one another. It's not perfect as there are a couple of duds that just absolutely suck. But there are more good songs here than just those two. Recommend to give this one a shot for.

Fave Songs: New, Steal My Sunshine, Magic Carpet Ride, Fire Up The Shoesaw, Troubled By The Way We Came Together and Good To Be Alive.

I may have been a diehard KISS fan in the middle of the phenomena called Saturday Night Fever, but even I couldn't resist the songs from The Bee Gees. They OWNED the music scene in 1977 and it wasn't just one song, or two, or three. It was five songs that seemed to be in heavy rotation on every damn radio station and I didn't have a problem with that at all. My Mom got me the soundtrack and it was just so cool holding the vinyl album and being able to open it to reveal the disco floor in all it's glory. Pretty cool to have a bunch of pictures on the side as well.

You may be wondering how I could have seen this movie at the time when I was still in elementary school? Yep, I got to see the PG version. Bah! I wanted to know what i was missing from the R-Rated version Anyway, the album is a bit uneven after you get past the first 6 songs, which I think are the best songs here. After that it's a take 'em or leave 'em affair for me. I can do without most of the instrumental songs that are heavy on the disco-ish flavor beats. I do like A Night On Disco Mountain a lot because it kinda reminds of something Bill Conti would have done if he was a part of the disco scene.

Gotta show some love for KC & the Sunshine Band and their epic song Boogie Shoes. Even if the song wasn't in the movie, it would STILL be an awesome kick ass song. This song always gets stuck in my head and makes me want to well......boogie.

Swingers (The Motion Picture Soundtrack) 1996
(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_10star.gif)

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers%2002/Swingers/SwingersSoundtrack500x500.jpg) (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/CD%20and%20Album%20Covers%2002/Swingers/SwingersSoundtrackBack500x500.jpg)



To listen to the Swingers Soundtrack is to watch the entire movie in your head. There is no getting around it. Each and every song is so identifiable with a scene in the movie that you just can't separate the two. At least that's how it is for me. As I said in my review of the movie Swingers (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/swingers-(1996)/msg12185/#msg12185), the music turned me onto Swing music and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It wasn't a passing fade for me either. I'm still a big fan of the genre as well as the band. But this soundtrack is more than just Daddy. It's got a nice mix of artist and styles on the disc that it offers a little something for everyone. For me it offers a lot a more. How much do I recommend this? So much so that it's the first and only time that I have ever given 10 Stars to an album that isn't perfect. There are a couple of HUGE omissions from the soundtrack, that being Magic Man by Heart and Staying Alive by Marty & Elayne. You will have to go to Swingers Too! to get those songs.

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But the Top 3 for me is Dean Martin's You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You, Kink Floyd's Groove Me and everything by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Ok, that last one was cheating as I was able to sneak 3 songs with just the one band. Sue me.

City of Angles - Soundtrack

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51aNmMr2NzL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

So this came about because I had Stolen w/ Nicolas Cage. (I've got so many other sitting here, I put it back... for now). Anyway my wife suddenly thought of another Nick Cage movie she loved and the music was important to here. It made the movie for her. So I have not seen the movie but was interested in the music. I still can't believe she likes all the songs. I think she remember some of them and just listened to the rest. She is NOT a Hendrix, U2 or Clapton fan.

Anyway, this collection of songs is either ballad like or rockin blues. Kind of disjointed. As most soundtracks might be. I only like a couple of songs. I'll be interested in seeing what she thinks 15 years later

    "If God Will Send His Angels" by U2 4:31
    "Uninvited" by Alanis Morissette 4:34
    "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix 3:49
    "Feelin' Love" by Paula Cole 5:37
    "Mama, You Got A Daughter" by John Lee Hooker 3:41
    "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan 4:29
    "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls 4:50
    "I Grieve" by Peter Gabriel 8:09
    "I Know" by Jude 4:34
    "Further On Up The Road" by Eric Clapton 7:26
    "Angel Falls" (Gabriel Yared) 4:54
    "Unfeeling Kiss" (Gabriel Yared) 3:42
    "Spreading Wings" (Gabriel Yared) 4:25
    "City Of Angels" (Gabriel Yared) 7:07

The movie is actually pretty good, but I can't remember one song that was in this (other than looking at the list) as it's been years since I last saw it.
