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

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


Fantastic idea!

Sure they could keep it groovy, a night of monster and sexploitation scores by Piccioni and Italian chums sounds fantastico.

Failing that, just whack an ableton drum beat over everything, nobody would bat an eyelid. Wink

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


Have you heard his soundtrack for The Thin Blue Line, Iain the bastard? [Me and Kelly are following your instruction and trying to make this nickname catch on]

It's my favourite of his film scores

Most have already been mentioned, I would add The Fountain, City of God, This Is England and Solaris / any Cliff Martinez in addition to the above...

A soundtrack night's a great idea!

Yes, Johnny Greenwood's soundtrack for There Will be Blood was excellent. What did everyone think of the film? My own opinion is that it was great. A mixture of East of Eden, Citizen Cane and China Town.

There's a cd of some of Mick Harvey's soundtrack work called Alta Maria & Vaterland. Haven't seen any of the things the music goes with so couldn't honestly say whether it goes well with the images but the music itself is great.

I think Mick Harvey is one of the great (more or less) unrecognised talents.

The soundtrack for The Blood On Satan's Claw by Marc Wilkinson got released on cd recently and is ace. Evil-pastoral-spooky genius.

The Creepshow soundtrack is also ace.

Just ordered a remix album of the Requiem For A Dream soundtrack. Could be pants but should be interesting. I hate the way the original soundtrack is presented on the original release, with the score broken up into little chunks to stick to the film's chronology.

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but the Goblin soundtrack for Dawn of the Dead rocks too.

Oh, and Ry Cooder's Southern Comfort soundtrack.

Just got Blood For Dracula on DVD in Borders for 8 the other week, soundtrack is indeed lovely, opulent stuff.

I loved the music in that. There is one scene in particular when Tyrone is having a flashback to when he was a kid and is running up the stairs to his momma... i love the music playing then

You should check out a film called My Little Eye for sound editing. OK film, phenomenal sound

The soundtrack for The French Connection is fantastic, especially as it suits the film so well. Nothing beats Blade Runner for me, though
