Favorite Soundtracks

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys! I was curious to know if there are any soundtracks that you really enjoy. My favorite is "Godzilla: The Album" from the 1998 Godzilla movie. In my opinion the movie is pretty terrible, but the soundtrack has lots of the mid to late 90's bands that I love. I really like the songs from RATM, Ben Folds Five, Green Day, and Silverchair. The Foo Fighters song "A320" is one of their best ever as far as I'm concerned, and Michael Penn's "Macy Day Parade" is so good. So, do you have any favorites? I wanna know! 

1. "Heroes" The Wallflowers  
2. "Come with Me" Puff Daddy featuring Jimmy Page  
3. "Deeper Underground" Jamiroquai  
4. "No Shelter" Rage Against the Machine  
5. "Air" Ben Folds Five  
6. "Running Knees" Days of the New  
7. "Macy Day Parade" Michael  Penn  
8. "Walk the Sky" Fuel  
9. "A320" Foo Fighters  
10. "Brain Stew" (The Godzilla Remix) Green Day  
11. "Untitled" Silverchair  
12. "Out There" Fuzzbubble  
13. "Undercover" Joey DeLuxe

I have never been a big soundtrack guy.  The only soundtrack that I own is the one for Josie and the Pussycats.  That sounds super lame, but it is a pretty good disc.  If you like female pop rock, you should check it out.

That's not lame at all! I love female vocalists. I'll check it out.

Have you listened to Letters to Cleo or That Dog?  Those were pretty popular 90s female rock bands (at least in my circles).  Kay Hanley (the singer for Letters to Cleo) is the voice for Josie on the soundtrack, and Anna Waronker (the singer for That Dog) wrote some of the songs on the soundtrack.

No, I've heard of both bands, but I'm not familiar with them at all. I'm gonna check 'em out though. Lately, I've been  trying find different stuff to listen to. I'm bad about getting into one or two things so much that I miss out on a lot of other cool stuff.

Help! by the Beatles 🤘

Man, that's a great one and I always forget that "Help" and "A Hard Day's Night" are soundtracks for some reason. I love the "Head" soundtrack by the Monkees too!

In terms of more orchestral scores, anything that Jon Brion has ever put his hands on is pure gold-- Eternal Sunshine, I Heart Huckabees, Punch Drunk Love... and most recently Lady Bird

Agreed Retreat from the Sun is one of my favorites.  I think it was the 11th CD  I ever bought.

I just grabbed a copy of this on cd from my record store's used bin a couple of days ago. You're 100% right.

Inside Llewyn Davis which is about a preDylan folk singer trying to make it in the 60s which includes a cast of Oscar Issac (the pilot in the new Star Wars), Adam Driver (Kyle Ren in Star Wars), John Goodman, and Justin Timberlake. Also the movie Rudderless which stars Billy Crudup (Almost Famous), William H. Macy, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburn, and some artist named Ben Kweller if you know who he is. Highly recommended movie.
