Name some great film soundtracks. Morricone and Badalamenti ones are banned.

1)Last Exit to Brookyln: Mark Knopfler
2)The Last Emperor: Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Byrne


Watched both these films quite recently. Besides being great films, the soundtracks were awesome and stand out in their own right.

101 Reykjavik and Ravenous,

I think Damon Albarn drives those films on with the soundtrack

Dead Man's Shoes [Mainly Smog]
Blade Runner [Vangelis]
2001: A Space Odyssey. Not original music, but the most effective choice of music I've ever seen in cinema

Anything by Nino Rota basically

Anything by Georges Delarue but particularly the haunting music for Godard's Le Mepris (later used by Scorsesse in Casino)

I love Claudio Frizzi's soundtrack for Andy Warhol's Blood for Dracula

Downtown 81

The sound design on alot of Tarkovsky stuff is brilliant but particularly the use of traditional Japanese music in The Sacrifice.

The Warriors soundtrack is top too

The soundtrack to Warhol's Blood For Dracula was by Claudio Gizzi and is one of my faves too (Fabio Frizzi has also done some great stuff!)

Nino Rota - everything, esp. Casanova + The Godfather obv.
Piero Piccioni - early scores from late 60's/70's esp. Camille 2000 + Swept Away
The Tenant (Philippe Sarde)
Southern Comfort (Balfa Bros./Ry Cooder)
Jodorowsky - Holy Mountain, El Topo
Viva La Muerte (Ekkoleg)
La Vallee + More (Pink Floyd)
La Planete Sauvage (Alain Goraguer)
Buena Vista Social Club
Pyjama Girl Case (Riz Ortolani)
Suspiria (Goblin)
The Harder They Come (Jimmy Cliff etc)
Wicker Man (Paul Giovanni)
Apna Desh (R.D. Burman)
Carnival Of Souls (Gene Moore)
A Tale Of Two Sisters (Byung-woo Lee)
Anatomy of a Murder (Duke Ellington)
Clean, Shaven (Hawn Rowe)
Liquid Sky (Slava Tsukerman)
Midnight Cowboy (John Barry)
Numerous spaghetti western soundtracks - esp. Indio Black (Nicolai), Sabata (Giombini), Grand Duel (Bacalov).

Just as well Morricone and Badalamenti are excluded, I'd be here all night!

Amn't familiar with some of the movies you mentioned, Pazuzu, but Southern Comfort, Suspiria, The Wicker Man and Midnight Cowboy are all fantastic

Can you include Lost Highway since a lot of it isn't Badalamenti? That's a fantastic soundtrack. I do enjoy the score to Taxi Driver, too

Ravenous...heavily underrated film, with a perfect minimal score from Albern and Nyman. Excellent stuff.


I guess we should pretty much add anything Philip Glass has touched in this category.

this could go on for DAYS. Several ace ones have been mentioned already, however...

Lost Horizon (Burt Bacharach)
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (burt Bacharach)
On the Flip Side (Burt Bacharach)


I could go on with the Burt ones,but these are probably my top three Burts.

Lady in Cement (Hugo Montenegro)
Klute (Michael Small)
Rosemary's Baby (Krzysztov Komeda)

And at the moment, I can't get enough of Morricone's "A Fistful of Dynamite"

why not an Optimo of great soundtrack music the nite of the Oscars?

I bet they couldn't do it and keep it groovy....
