    I don't know what that means, I can turn all the lights off, then I'm well away from my shadow.

    You'll never understand. You and me, we're not even the same species. I used to be you, then I evolved.

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    Yup, used by Bomb the Base in their tune Megablast and in the old Amiga game Xenon 2 Megablast. :)
  15. no-no

    no-no Small robot you know

    Ravenous has a nice soundtrack, this is a nice menacing one...

    Zatoichi too, I love this film soundtrack....
  16. Stigmata

    Stigmata sexual tyrannosaurus

    Conan the Barbarian had an excellent score. Basil Poledouris is one of my favourite film composers.

  17. Orang Utan

    David Lynch, not John Carpenter!
    Badalamenti has something to do with the Drive soundtrack I think or maybe Cliff Martinez did it all. I saw a copy with AB's credit one, but it only had half the soundtrack on it and lots of dramatic scenes had Brian Eno's An Ending or Descent (can't remember which).
    Anyway - my favourites would have to be Midnight Express, Tenebrae, Suspiria, Profundo Rosso, Risky Business, The Good The Bad & The Ugly or Once Upon A Time In The West. Or Stalker. Or Solaris (both versions). Hard to decide really! Ooh, I forgot The Thin Red Line.
    Then there's all the Philip Glass soundtracks! Mishima is ace (and still used in load of trailers).
  18. Reno

    Reno The In Kraut

    No, the Drive soundtrack sounds nothing like Badalamenti. It's Martinez and another six tracks by other artists. Great soundtrack and one of my favourite albums of the year.
  19. Orang Utan

    Orang Utan Sub-Sub-Librarian

    i think AB's contribution must have been rejected then, cos the soundtrack of the version i saw had all the other artist tracks on it. martinez must have been brought in later.

    ChrisFilter Like a boss.

    Yeah, the Drive soundtrack is superb.

    Originally the Drive soundtrack was supposed to be composed by Johnny Jewel, who produces two of the bands featured on the soundtrack, Chromatics and College. For some reason it didn't work out and Cliff Martinez ended up composing the score. Jewel's album Symmetry apparently features tracks that were originally meant for Drive. It's quite good too.

    I really like his soundtrack for Robocop.
  23. Rock Bottom

    Rock Bottom Second Wind

    I like the way "The Third Man" soundtrack captures and adjusts to the tone of movie. As has been mentioned before, John Carpenter's original compositons also work well to invoke the exact mood he is looking for. Especially in Assault on Precinct 13, which is for me, his standout movie soundtrack pairing.

    Other interesting examples are where the whole concept of the movie is built on a particular genre of music. In this way, New Jack City, Boyz in the Hood, 8 Mile, and La Haine work very well. Regarding this, I was very interested to see the documentary the other day about Ken Russell, who based all his early TV work around composers' works. I'd be very interested in seeing them.

    I really like the one for the baz luhrman romeo & juliet too

    killer b Gazing vacantly at a plate of mince

    i've had this morricone tune stuck in my head for about a week now... can't speak for the rest of the soundtrack, or the film. but this is a total killer.

  27. Kid_Eternity

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    Yup that's a great one!

    For soundtrack, I have a particular penchant for Hackers. Orbital, Leftfield, Prodigy, Underworld, Stereo MCs... and more. Brilliant.


    For score you can't really beat Axel F in Beverly Hills Cop. Plus the soundtrack is pretty awesome too. Patti LaBelle, Pointer Sisters, and Glenn Frey's The Heat Is On.
