Still a classic song though. The Bond cd that features the title tracks I suppose can be considered a soundtrack album. I've got the first edition, though. I need the new one now, with the bonus tracks on. Being the completest that I am :wink:

My faves are:

Can't Stop The Music (every track is great, my faves are Liberation, Magic Night and Can't Stop The Music)
Xanadu (have a soft spot for Whenever You're away From Me)
Tron (her next album, Digital Moonscapes is brilliant, it's more of the same)

Emo??? where?? that's a bit of a insult to at least one legend of a band and a few that no longer exsist, The Cure, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Pantera, Helmet, Stone Temple Pilots, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine.... nope no emo in there :wink:

Also I've got to mention Boogie Nights excellent soundtrack, contains a load of classics, and quite a bit of pap :lol:

Great topic. This is my first post so I'll begin by saying Hello :D

I agree with most of the above recommendations - particularly those scored by Alan Silvestri and John Williams both of whom, in my opinion, are amongst the great composers of the late twentieth century.

As for my choice of great movie soundtracks. I would have to pitch John Barry's haunting soundtrack for the Michael Caine film The Ipcress File and Ennio Morricone's score for Once Upon A Time In The West. Both are incredibly atmospheric and well worth a listen to.

I agree, John Barry one of the most underrated composers imo, like everyone thinks he's a bond composer and that's it...

Dances with Wolves is very good too.

oh and welcome tariq!

Yes, Tariq, welcome matey.

John Barry is very underrated. He done the soundtrack for Game of Death as well, which was very bond-esque, but really very good.

Been listening to the Rocky IV soundtrack a bit, and it's up there with the Top Gun soundtarck as a rarity: a soundtrack with no guff on whatsoever. Even Living In America by James Brown gets a thumbs up from me!

Talking about the Rocky IV soundtrack, have you heard Bullet For My Valentine's version of No Easy Way Out??, bloody good stuff, often listen to it while driving my Lamborghini Passat :lol:

Btw, welcome Tariq, enjoy yourself :D

Maybe I should have thought a bit first :roll: The local emo's seem to have adopted the crow look. Tis a great soundtrack though, the cure's Burn and pantera's cover of the badge being stand outs.
