Most 80's movies came with excellent soundtracks, Roadhouse, Karate Kid, Weird Science, Blade Runner, Pretty Woman, Highlander, etc.
Disney films had fun soundtracks like, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Beauty

The Mission anyone? Vertigo, North By Northwest, Psycho... Thinking of "scores" that are an integral part of the film rather than "soundtracks" using existing artists as background or for context. More recently Social Network. And what about Superfly and Shaft? Oh yes, and Lift To The Scaffold...

Obviously a question of personal taste but, more than any, I listen to Peter Greenaway's Belly of an Architect, music (mainly) by Wim Mertens

Dear All

The truth is that one cannot identify a true best score or soundtrack. Each is written for the type of film and for each particular scene in the film. If the soundtrack merges with he scene then that would be the best soundtrack for the scene in question. Hence we should all appreciate that all soundtracks are the best but for a particular film and scene.

Best soundtrack - either Once Upon a time in America or
Last of the Mohicans

That's a tough one - mine would be a tie between Laurie Johnson's score for Diagnosis Murder (the British film starring Christopher Lee not the Dick Van Dyke series) and Bernard Herman's score for Agatha Christie's Endless Night.

I quite like Pans Labyrinth's. Also The Lion King's for the four tracks of score by Hans Zimmer. (It was also the first thing i ever bought off Amazon. =>)

'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' has got everything.
But if you haven't heard it you all need to check out Bruce Broughton's 'Young Sherlock Holmes'. :^)

To my mind - 'The Fountain' (Clint Mansell/Mogwai/Kronos Quartet) is sublime, as is Morricone's 'The Mission', Michael Nyman's 'The Piano' will haunt you for days afterwards. Carter Burwell's 'Twilight' shows plenty of promise though owes a debt to 'The Fountain', whatever you think of the film itself 'Sucker Punch' is glorious apart from the Rappy Queen Mash Up in the middle.

Hans Zimmer' Black Hawk Down, a great mix of African, Irish & American tracks, culminating in the haunting Leave No Man Behind. In the film, the music is barely audible, so get the CD!

Some of the Gladiator score was beautiful!

For me: OHMSS, Get Carter, Bullitt, Dirty Harry, Morricone's Italian ''thriller'' soundtracks from the early 70's.

I used to collect soundtracks. Taxi Driver, Performance and Midnight Cowboy are all superb but the most dazzling soundtrack in my collection has to be Natural Born Killers. It's loud, surreal, playful, diverse, and brilliantly constructed. The film was bold and colorful; the soundtrack is more so. An absolutely essential purchase for anyone who likes (riotous and insane) soundtracks.
