Well seeing as its a Sunday and supposedly a day of rest (which is a complete lie.. I had tons to do today!) I thought I’d settle in and watch a film. After getting into a discussion about Bjork with some friends yesterday, I picked Suckerpunch, on the grounds that the soundtrack had been the only time that said friend had actually enjoyed her music. (Personally, I’m a huge fan).
Anyway, the film and soundtrack discussion made me think – how many films are memorable simply for their soundtracks? How many films are greatly enhanced by their soundtracks?
Here’s five of my favourite film soundtracks (ignore how ‘uncool’ some of them might be):
* Suckerpunch – Bjork ‘Army of Me’
Great song, inspirational message, great placement within the film.
* The Matrix – Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and Deftones
Probably one that’s more for the industrial fans. At least the first film is good too? I’m not sure about the other two..
* Benny and Joon – The Proclaimers ‘500 Miles’
Because I’m the least ‘cool’ person you’ll ever meet.
* Resident Evil – Basically the whole soundtrack
I was never a huge fan of the films, as zombies basically terrify me, but I’ll admit the soundtracks were immense..
* The Crow – The Cure, Nine Inch Nails and Violent Femmes?
Anyone have other favourites? Let me know!
