Great, all-origional soundtrack


Yeah, that is a good one as well.

I didn't include concert film/documentary soundtracks in my list because I consider them more live albums than soundtracks, but I would have to say that the Last Waltz is definitely up there. (Along with Let It Be, Stop Making Sense, etc.)

Also, another soundtrack I would like to add is the Wonder Boys soundtrack. Great songs by Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield, John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, and of course Bob Dylan. ("Things Have Changed" - for which he won the Oscar)
And in the end...

I must admit I haven't paid that much attention to movie soundtracks, but two soundtracks that I really like (apart from the Beatles' of course) are "Purple Rain" and "Shrek 2" - I quite like the cover of David Bowie's "Changes", where he himself intervenes, and the version of "La Vida Loca" by Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas. And I must admit I also liked "Grease" in its day...

To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...

Beatles are a given---so

That Thing You Do I thought was well done, love it, really authentic.

O Brother Where Art Thou? and Walk The Line (...naturally!)

Goldfinger - Pure Sean Connery/James Bond period.

The Sting had those great Joplin songs. Paper Moon and Pennies From Heaven had cool original 30s music.

"The Cooler" had a couple of great jazz vocals, Diana Krall and Tierney Sutton - you've got to check out Ms. Sutton - she's magical.

"A Walk On the Moon." produced by Dustin Hoffman is a GREAT movie and has an excellent soundtrack, Beautiful Day, Richie Havens,many more, the soundtrack is A+ and the movie is highly reccomended A++++

It's especially reccomended for our younger Macca members to get a true snap-shot/feeling of "the 60's" as the movie is a depiction of the transition in culture during that period told in a love story starring Diane Lane. It's setting is outside of Woodstock, NY while Neil Armsrong steps on the moon. Great contrast in facts, imagry and sensibility. One of the most under-rated movies I have ever seen!

Hey Mac good call !! I enjoyed both the movie and its soundtrack.

BTW I like Three Dog Night a lot - how the heck did they come up with their name ????
