Your favourite Soundtrack

Just watched one of my all time favourite movies 'Jackie Brown' another quality movie by the great Tarantino, a few reasons why i love this movie...
The Plot
The Cast
and thirdly the soundtrack, which is possibly one of the greatest soundtracks EVER !!!
Street life, Across 110th street, Natural high, Strawberry letter 23, Didn't i blow your mind, and many more classics
I know that is probably a strong statement, but that is just my opinion and i did say 'possibly', so my question to you all is what is your favourite soundtrack.

Is he the brother of Little Jimmy Brown, in a terrible French accent, made famous all those years ago?

Bullitt probably.

Or Some Like it Hot.

I suppose, if this is going to be a thread about your favourite soundtrack, then calling it 'Jackie Brown' might be a bit misleading. BTW a film I've never heard of and, judging by the soundtrack, won't be seeking out. Each to his own.

Hm.... More or less anything by John Barry (James Bond, Pink Panther, Midnight Cowboy etc), Angel Heart (Courtney Pine, Dr John and Sonny Terry all on board and a splendid movie too), there's a great soundtrack to a decidedly average 1980s noir called Hot Spot which consists of John Lee Hooker jamming with Miles Davis.... The music from Amelie etc etc (you've hit on one of my specialist areas here).

Despite the lack of saxophones (some nice bass clarinet bits, though!) I have to go for Bernard Hermann. Psycho and Vertigo especially.

Can barely disagree with any of the suggestions. I loooove "Vertigo" and John Barry's stuff. I might also suggest "The Russia House" - great soprano playing by Branford, and the haunting sound of the duduk. Such a beautiful sound that I bought one myself - and can't play it for toffee.

A few years ago I had a band which appeared with burlseque acts- we ended up covering loads of old Mancini tunes and I developed a great love of some of his work back then....

The Sting . It's my favourite film. Partly because of the perfect plot but also for the ragtime revival, played at the pace Scott Joplin intended.
Hadn't thought of Nick's Some Like it Hot. Great film and the soundtrack features Down Among the Sheltering Palms in several guises. I have a 1940s version by Kid Ory's band (sorry to menton trombonists) which has the lyrics sung - corny is not a word used these days but it describes the words and the delivery perfectly.

Actually- in respect to Quentin Tarantino- I'm hugely endebted to the guy. Having played in Rockabilly, surf & garage rock (etc) bands since the later 1980s the soundtracks to his movies have really made a difference to my gigging career. I remember with my last originals band, Mudlow- a hybrid of Tom waits, Dr john, Beefheart, howling wolf etc- we picked up a following of very young skateboarders- I'd always been really intrigued as to how they perceived what we did, as I was sure they didn't know our 'knowing' nods to Dr John's Gris Blues, Sun Ra's horns etc... At one gig I overheard the conversation "so what are they like then?"... "You'll love 'em, they're like something from a tarantino movie" Ah, so that's what they were hearing, I get it now.....
