What's your favorite movie soundtrack? You can only choose one! Mine's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II. Most definitely. Best soundtrack ever. The music is just so haunting and beautiful, I can't handle it. It makes me cry every time

And I don't care; I'm not going to be restricted to just one when I have two! The Love Actually soundtrack was so amazing, both the songs and the scores. It was a perfect mix of music for a wonderful movie.

I can't think of a more perfect soundtrack than Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind's.....

Highlander. Yeah, yeah, whatever. I love Queen and any film that had them basically write an album's worth of music for the soundtrack is alright with me. Also Michael Kamen.

Tough. I have a lot of film soundtracks and I tend to drift in and out of certain ones for a couple of months at a time. But, I think my all time favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. Also a heck of a lot of that was not used in the film

How has no one said Lord of the Rings yet?
Just the soundtracks from all three are simply amazing.

They are good. The way Shore managed to develop themes throughout the three scores with their full impact coming in the final film was impressive. Also, lots of leitmotif which I love. Like the films, the score works as one giant cohesive work

But, they're also kind of draining to listen to when you try to listen to the entire thing XD So, I don't do it often

There are quite a few good ones, but I'd have to go with Back to the Future (second to that, Rocky). The songs are memorable, catchy, and they know how to drive the emotion of the moment.

Ooh, that's a good shout. Indeed, anything by Jon Brion is amazing...

But I'mma have to go with a cliche: Bernard Herrman's score to Psycho adds so much to that film. Apparently, Hitchcock wanted the film to be shot completely silently, but then completely reconsidered when he heard his beauty of a piece of music:



Chilling and haunting and oh-so-glorious. But even in the non-famous moments, the pulsating score just adds so much tension to the film that when it's NOT there, you think something even worse is going to go down. A masterpiece.

There are a lot of great ones, but off the top of my head I'd have to say Juno and lord of the rings. (any of them)

Also, High school Musical 2's soundtrack is fun because it's just so incredibly bad.

Thanks for the heads up on the Spotless Mind soundtrack, only discovered it now and it's such a fun listen :3

ALWAYS LOVED the soundtrack to Brother Bear.

Last of the Mohicans. I listen to that soundtrack and I feel dirty afterwards because it draws the hopeless romantic out of me.

This is my favorite score from any movie.

It's from that Disney movie, Dinosaur. It just sounds epic enough for a war of Pokemon, IMO.

Lost In Translation probably has the most positively melancholic group of songs that I've come across in any film. Not something to listen to repeatedly, but it's the soundtrack that I've found myself coming back to the most over the years.

Anything by Morricone is worth mentioning as well.

Good pick. That score is quite good

I just watched The Muppets again and I remembered how much I love those songs.

But my favorite, if I have to choose one, is the soundtrack to Amélie. It's all so romantic and French and I played it so much that I just killed it and can't listen to it anymore. Or maybe it's been long enough and I can. I dunno. I'm afraid to try in case it hasn't been enough time.

I don't think I can just pick one.

If it's just score music we're talking about then it would probably be The Secret Garden, The Village, or A Series of Unfortunate Events.

If it's a compilation of songs then it would probably be Wicker Park or Whip It. Or maybe 500 Days of Summer.

Jennifer's Body. There are so many amazing bands featured on it with so many unique and interesting songs that fit the movie perfectly, it's just an all-around brilliant sound track for a film. The Shrek films earn and honourable mention too though!

The music and songs from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (the original) are what make it my favorite movie, so I have to choose that. I agree with machomuu, though, that Back to the Future and Rocky both have great soundtracks that fit perfectly.

I'd like to say Titanic, but I just can't let Harry Potter down.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II's music was defs the best. Shining Raichu's right, it's mysterious and it gave a chill down my spine every time I watched that movie. I'm a Potterhead, tbh. Great soundtrack.

No mention of Scott Pilgrim? The song had the appropriate soundtrack with bands from around Toronto.
