My favourite is Superfly by Curtis Mayfield. The music is so good it stands on its own; in fact it deserves a better film to showcase it.

I would consider the best movie soundtracks to be those which become integral to the movie itself.
The early James Bond movies wouldn't be what they were without John Barry's wonderful scores.
The Star Wars movies absolutely depended upon the music.
Stanley Kubrick was a genius for the music he used in 2001 and A Clockwork Orange.
Naturally, Saturday Night Fever had to have a great sound track.
American Graffiti would be barley watchable without the music.

the passion is a good call. most ofthese sound tracks are just a collection of old rock motown hits .....not really a sound track, it the miami vice pop music to cheaply score a film and to cross market a product...thus you get anMTV video.

For best my suggestion is a Clockword Orange.....cover tunes but arranged in was that were never dreamer of by the author

Don't much care about soundtracks, only two come to mind: Breakfast at Tiffanys, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

well.. first I break up SCORE from SOUNDTRACK.. but as for SOUNTRACK.. Tarantino AND Kevin Smith both have fantastic ears for picking out music.. so I'd throw in their ENTIRE work, thus far.

Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Dusk till Dawn (FANTASTICALLY underrated), Death Proof (a few gems in there.. but not to my personal taste), Reservoir Dogs, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy (ONLY a bootleg.. but amazing choices..), Dogma (great score.. but makes Alanis' Uninvited at the end all the more powerful..), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.. (say what you will.. but you jus tend to bop and rock along with it), Zack and Miri.. (a bit safe.. but still some great suff).

Also The Crow.. I'd even venture and say Crow: City of Angels had some great tracks.. Pump Up the Volume.. American Grafitti (AMAZING).


although I put Kill Bill up top.. it is MOSTZY score.. so I'd throw it back down here.. also throw in The Godfather.. The Untouchables (Ennio Morricone was AMAZING here..), The Star Wars series (even the prequels had some amazing tracks), and Lalo Schiffrin doing "Dirty Harry".. I don't kow.. jus that vible.. wouldn't have worked without it.. ditto for Isaac Hayes work on "Shaft"
