    Thumbs up Favourite Movie Soundtrack

    Excluding Star Wars, what is your favourite Movie Soundtrack?

    I was thinking about this before in work and I could NOT make up my mind because there are so many good soundtracks out there. Do you know what your fave is?

    "You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you!" - Obi-Wan Kenobi
    "There's a gentleness about a total Star Wars geek that is sublime."- Rick McCallum
    My DVD Collection

    What do you mean by soundtrack? Score or pop compilation?

    Score-wise, I'm a big fan of both John Williams and Danny Elfman. Some of my favorites (non-SW) are:
    Jurassic Park
    Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone
    Empire of the Sun
    The Fury
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    ET: The Extra-Terrestrial
    Edward Scissorhands
    To Die For (score only, even if it's a scant 18 minutes )
    Pee Wee's Big Adventure
    The Nightmare Before Christmas
    Black Beauty
    The Fifth Element
    The Lion King

    Pop-wise, here's some classics:
    Saturday Night Fever
    Judgment Night
    The Graduate (Simon & Garfunkel)
    She's the One (Tom Petty)
    The Transformers: The Movie
    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
    Empire Records
    Top Gun
    Eddie & The Cruisers (John Cafferty)
    Air America
    Last Action Hero

    I'm sure I forgot a bunch.
    That's my jacket!

    Besides the obvious ones (like Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones), I'm partial to:
    The Terminator 1 and 2...and I suppose 3
    The Matrix
    And...the best soundtrack I've ever heard that wasn't composed by John Williams...Black Hawk Down!

    Stand By Me -- A lot of great 50's tunes by the Fleetwoods, the Dellvikings

    Forrest Gump -- Lots and lots of great 60's tunes that defined the decade including The Byrds "Turn! Turn! Turn!"

    O' Brother Where Art Thou? -- Not bad for someone who is not a fan of that type of music. Has a folksy, country, bluegrass, gospel, bluesy sound all rolled into one great album.

    Top Gun was another great soundtrack. Had a mix of classic and new (at the time) songs.
    "The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see, the future is. But this I am sure of - do their duty the Jedi will." --Yoda from Attack of the Clones.
