How can you guys forget Howard Shore & Ornette Coleman for Naked Lunch?
And heck, I like Peter Gabriel's Passion: Music For The Last Temptation of Christ even moreso.
Oh, and I strongly emphasize a "shame on you" message for no mention of John Williams. Wait, someone said Jaws, oops. I'm sure Wendy Carlos will make an appearance; he/she/it always does.

Agree with the Lynch catch-all. Probably add Tarantino to that short list too.

Other notables include 2001, Saturday Night Fever, The Harder They Come, Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid, The Graduate, The Godfather, Grease, Xanadu, Purple Rain, Home of the Brave, Roger & Me, Stop Making Sense, A Hard Day's Night, Help!, and Rocky Horror. Full Metal Jacket has a nice soundtrack, but it works so great with the scenes, I'd rather watch the movie than just listen to the audio recording.

In recent fare, I like the soundtrack to The Departed.

I should add all the Takeshi Kitano films I've seen to that list. Also, most Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci films (love Goblin and LOVE Fabio Frizzi). Most Leone movies. Most Carpenter movies.

Also, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.

...I wonder why very few directors are interested in background music anymore... It's odd, like I was watching Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer last night, and that film's not even THAT old (22 years) but it just seems so, SO far removed from any film that comes out today (and I know it's not the most mainstream film ever for me to mention, but it did make over 6 times what it cost to make when it came out, was a minor mainstream success, and almost everyone ever has at least heard of it... so I'm just using it as a lack of a better example right now).

...

Films from 10 years ago seem like art films compared to most major films that come out today. It's not just that the soundtracks are usually just whatever popular songs of today or yesterday... the directing, the pacing... all these films are solely concerned with carrying the plot to whatever point they're supposed to end up at with nothing in between.

I like movies that have scenes that have nothing to do with the plot, movies with scenes of loneliness and quietness, every film nowadays is almost in constant crescendo from beginning to end. It sucks.

Sorry, I got a little off-topic, but yeah.

Not all of them are all that good, sorry.

Henry is the most frightening movie I've ever seen, btw.

I'd say the bulk of our sndtrks collection is 70s/80s horror scores. Horror sndtrks are the best.

That's a great call. Has it even been officially released?

Another two worth mentioning that I think so far have not are Vangelis' Chariots of Fire and Giorgio Moroder's Midnight Express.

Um, okay, do you want me to list my favorite Cronenberg film soundtracks from least to worst? Would that make my contribution more satisfying? I didn't realize I had to strain my brain in order to make my posts noteworthy.

..

My favorite is the haunting score to Crash and the amazing, dark, Badalemti-like Videodrome score... Oh, and the scores to the Dead Zone and Dead Ringers are fucking unbelievable. But yeah, I like all of them. I guess the last few films have had more forgettable soundtracks but yeah.

I'd personally rate Taxi Driver somewhat higher than a 'meh'. With regards Psycho though, yes, absolutely. Arguably the greatest of them all.

I think it was released on vinyl at some point.

Actually, Wolf Eyes were distributing horror movie soundtracks on casette tapes a few years back in editions of 100... and this was one of them that they were selling. Pretty wild.

Anyway, here it is for d/l:

Taxi Driver soundtrack is probably my favorite soundtrack ever that Ennio Morricone had nothing to do with.

17. Trainspotting (1996) - Various

Eh? Just for the heroin overdose scene probably.

37. Chinatown (1974) - Jerry Goldsmith

Yes!

76. A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Walter Carlos

Yes!!!!!!!!! The theme song to that is my favorite.

98. Beetlejuice (1988) - Danny Elfman

Actually, even though I'm not a Tim Burton fan, most of his films have great music.. thanks to Danny Elfman.

Also, has anyone mentioned FORBIDDEN ZONE yet? Great soundtrack!!

Also, I loved the music in the film Attic Expeditions.. it had Naked City on it actually.
