My Top 60 Soundtracks (Part 5)

20. Wayne’s World 2
ww2
– I own the first movie soundtrack on Cassette, and really need to upgrade it to CD… so by default WW2 gets this slot.
Fave tracks: “Dude Looks Like a Lady” – Aerosmith,”Out There” – Dinosaur Jr., “Idiot Summer” – Gin Blossoms & “Frankenstein” – Edgar Winter

19. Twilight

– Sure the movie is divided into those who a) love it, b) hate it. But anyone who knows anything about music cannot doubt the strength of the soundtrack.
Fave Tracks: “Supermassive Black Hole” – Muse, “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” -Iron & Wine, “Eyes on Fire” – Blue Foundation & “Tremble for My Beloved”- Collective Soul.

18. From Dusk Till Dawn
fromdusk_till_dawn_1996_ost1
– The movie may be an over the top Mexican-liquor fuelled Vampire flick, and i don’t mean that in a bad way, but the soundtrack is equally down and dirty,i mean that in a good way.
Fave Tracks: “Dark Night” – The Blasters, “After Dark” – Tito & Tarantula, “Dengue Woman Blues” -Jimmie Vaughan.

17. Desperado
desperado
– Along with QT, Robert Rodriguez can do no wrong when it comes to movies & Music in my eyes. Desperado was cool, dirty and sexy as hell, as was the soundtrack.
Fave Tracks: “Strange Face of Love” & “Back To The House That Love Build” – Tito & Tarantula, & “Six Blade Knife” – Dire Straits

16. Juno
junose2hc6
– One of the quirkiest, best written movies to have graced our screens in the last 10 years. The soundtrack offered nothing less that something of equal offering.
Fave Tracks: “All I Want Is You” – Barry Louis Polisar, “A Well Respected Man” – The Kinks, “Anyone Else But You” – The Moldy Peaches & all of Kimya Dawson’s songs.

15. Grind
grind
– The ultimate buddy movie. Unfortunately I don’t really have any, so I live vicariously through the soundtrack.
Fave Tracks: “Fly From The Inside” – Shinedown, “These Walls” – Trapt,”I’m Just a Kid” – Simple Plan & “BOOM” – P.O.D.

14. Reservoir Dogs
rd
– Quentin Tarantino’s first offering of Violence, brilliant storytelling and pace perfect music was served up in the form of Reservoir Dogs.
Fave Tracks: “Hooked on a Feeling” – Blue Swede, “Fool For Love”- Sandy Rogers, “Little Green Bag” – George Baker and of course “Stuck In The Middle With You” – Stealers Wheel.

13. Jackie Brown
jackie brown ost
– Considered one of Tarantino’s weakest films, (only because Reservoir Dogs & Pulp Fiction preceded it), Jackie Brown delivered a typically brilliant soundtrack.
Fave Tracks: “Tenessee Stud” – Johnny Cash,”Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time” – The Delphonics,”Across 110th Street” – Bobby Womack, “Street Life” – Randy Crawford

12. City of Angels
2eg91th
– I’m a sap for this movie. I’m man enough to admit the tears doth flow everytime… I mean come on…he gives up his wings for love and she dies!
Fave Tracks: “Feelin Love” – Paula Cole, “If God Will Send His Angels” – U2, “Iris” – Goo Goo Dolls & “Red House” – Jimi Hendrix

11. Garden State
Garden_state_
– I don’t rave about this movie as much as most people do. I don’t connect as well to the visuals I think. But the OST is something specially. An award winning selection by Zach Braff here.
Fave tracks: “In The Waiting Line” – Zero 7, “Let Go” – Frou Frou, “New Slang”- The Shins, “Such Great Heights” – Iron & Wine, “One of These Things First” – Nick Drake, “The Only Living Boy In New York” – Simon & Garfunkel.
