Got this idea from Panzer in the CH, so what are your favorite movie soundtracks (if you still buy complete albums (generic term for full sets))...lol.

I don't think you can go wrong with Guardians of the Galaxy (1 and 2) "Awesome Mix". So many great songs.

The last soundtrack I actually bought was Invincible...the Marky Mark football movie. wink

Old soundtrack albums I bought about 30 years ago or more...original Footloose, Top Gun, Ghostbusters.

The Good,the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West compilation is the only movie soundtrack album I own I think.

Oh yeah,and Moonrise Kingdom. I enjoy a lot of movie music but usually only 1 or 2 tunes so rarely buy them.

2. Let's Hear It For The Boy - Deniece Williams
3. Almost Paradise (Love Theme ''Footloose'') - Mike Reno, Ann Wilson
4. Holding Out For A Hero - Bonnie Tyler
5. Dancing In The Sheets - Shalamar
6. I'm Free (Heaven Helps The Man) - Kenny Loggins

The Girl Gets Around...

Bang Your Head (Metal Health)...

==========

One of my guilty pleasures is "Xanadu" (1980)...

1. Magic - Olivia Newton-John
2. Suddenly Olivia Newton-John, Cliff Richard
3. Dancin' - The Tubes, Olivia Newton-John
4. Suspended In Time - Olivia Newton-John
5. Whenever You're Away From Me - Gene Kelly, Olivia Newton-John
6. I'm Alive - Electric Light Orchestra
7. The Fall - Electric Light Orchestra
8. Don't Walk Away - Electric Light Orchestra
9. All Over The World - Electric Light Orchestra
10. Xanadu (Xanadu Soundtrack Version) - Olivia Newton-John, Electric Light Orchestra

Wife liked the movie and I already had the soundtrack (8-track then LP [cool how there's an ON-J side and an ELO side]), so I finally watched the movie at her place. Meh...prefer the music only.

==========

I dunno, ON-J has always had this innocent sounding charm I was attracted to, also heard in "Grease" (one of wife's favorite soundtracks)...

EDIT: Oops, I forgot a shared all-time top 5...

The soundtrack to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

Not only is Blues Brothers my favorite comedy of all time but every song you hear in the movie is great too!

When it comes to non-English language movies, these soundtracks really stands out to me:

Das Boot
Seven Samurai
Ran
Kagemusha
Ivan the Terrible Parts I and II.

I love American Graffiti. Many people have no clue that it was directed by George Lucas.
So many people on that cast who became big stars later. Harrison Ford, Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, etc.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., and The Hunt for Red October are among my tops. But I wanted to highlight a particular moment in the E.T. sound track that I remember when I saw the movie for the first time. I was so awestruck that for just several seconds I felt myself slip out of the story and simply thought to myself how awesome that was. It happens at approximately 2:40 on this clip - it is the very moment when E.T. looks up at a particularly huge tree and sounds amazed.


It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Valdez that thoughts acquire speed, the teeth acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion.
