Even ugliness looks beautiful next to you.
someone has to make you look good
You can't hide from your shadow.
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.
evolution isn't always an improvement you know.
This is not about you, you egomaniac. I kinda like you.
I like you too badgers
You know, the only thing that kills the demon... is love.

You killed life!
No I killed Mr Moonlight
Especially this one
Yup, used by Bomb the Base in their tune Megablast and in the old Amiga game Xenon 2 Megablast.
Ravenous has a nice soundtrack, this is a nice menacing one...
Zatoichi too, I love this film soundtrack....
Conan the Barbarian had an excellent score. Basil Poledouris is one of my favourite film composers.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
The o brother where art thou soundtrack was ace.
I really like the one for the baz luhrman romeo & juliet too
Ghost Dog way of the Samurai
Can't find the bugger to download or buy anywhere here in Korea.....
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.
Yup that's a great one!
Cool Hand Luke
and obv Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting and Oh Brother Where art Thou?
Yes! Good call
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.
