These aren’t necessarily my favourite films (some of them are, but there are some here that I actively loathe) but they are some of my favourite soundtracks. I’ve listened to all* of these independently of the films for which they were composed or compiled.
(*excepting Christopher Spelman’s score for James Gray’s The Immigrant, which as far as I am aware has never been issued, since – thanks to the typically execrable machinations of The Weinstein Company – the film itself was never given a proper theatrical release in English-speaking territories; I was lucky enough to see it in Belgium.)
This slideshow is a work in progress; as time goes by, I aim to add more films to the list, and possibly also eventually to provide links. You can already, for example, find samples from a couple of the lesser known soundtracks on my YouTube video page.
very good choice….but i don’t seen “Conan the Barbarian”………?!?
I admit, some of my favorite soundtracks are more for the album themselves than for the music within the movie. My list includes “O Lucky Man”, “Phantom of the Paradise”, “A Clockwork Orange” and “Tank Girl”. As far as I know, it doesn’t really have anything to do with Malcolm McDowell being in them….
Darn it, I left out Conan the Barbarian and Phantom of the Paradise. All the titles included so far are soundtracks I have on CD. So I guess the next update will probably include favourite soundtracks that I don’t have on CD.
Also, here are some more recent soundtracks I love: https://multiglom.com/2015/04/24/nine-recent-film-scores-i-really-like/
