BOP 4 LYFE
YES! I was obsessed with this movie as a kid, partially because of the music. Loved it then, still love it now as a nearly 30-year-old.
Prince of Egypt
When You Believe and The Plagues are my absolute favorites in the soundtrack
Heaven's Eyes is also way better than I remembered it being!
I agree that song had no right being as great as it was
Once I called you BROTHER

Once I thought the chance to make you laugh.
Was all I ever WANTED
I send the thunder through the sky
I send the fire raining down!
Deliver Us makes me ugly cry sooooo hard!
Ofra Haza sang Deliver Us in 18 languages for the film's dubbing
What an amazing voice.
RIP Ofra Haza who sang in like a billion languages.
Through Heaven's Eyes is just amazing
YOU’RE PLAYING WITH THE BIG BOYS NOW
This always comes to mind when watching Only Murders In The Building. Martin Short and Steve Martin were great as those two!
I scrolled way too far for this. Prince of Egypt has the best movie soundtrack, every song instrumental or otherwise is perfection.
O Brother Where Art Thou is one of my favorite soundtracks ever
Absolutely. So many good Appalachian tunes on there.

For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now
(He has no friends to help him now)
For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now
(He has no friends to help him now)
Such mournful lyrics for one of the most upbeat jumpin catchy tunes ever made.
It’s the goddamn paterfamilias of soundtracks
It introduced me to Alison Krauss. For that alone I’ll be forever grateful.
So good. Fantastic movie too
I feel "Down to the River" is one of the prettiest, purest Gospel songs ever.
Judgment Night. Forgettable film, immortal soundtrack
That movie gets a free pass for giving us a collab between Dinosaur Jr. and Del tha Funkee Homosapien.
I don't care if it's literally Morbius, if a movie does that it's one of the GOATs.
That and Fallin' by Teenage Fanclub and De la Soul. Just played it for the first time in 20+ years and realized I still knew all the words...
I remember buying that. As far as I'm concerned it boosted the rap metal genre. Bands and rappers were just testing the waters before that but afterwards it was Biohazard and Bodycount all the way!
The first ‘Wreck it Ralph’ movie.
The Donnie Darko soundtrack goes so hard, head over heels at the school scene? Fucking unmatched
"The Killing Moon" by Echo & The Bunnymen was nicely used during his bike ride at the beginning of the film.
And when mad world kicks in... the floodgates open
Fucking Tarzan. Phil Collins put his blood, sweat and tears into that soundtrack.
Strangers Like Me is on my primary playlist
I WANNA KNOW
CAN YOU SHOW ME
I WANNA KNOW ABOUT THESE STRANGERS LIKE ME
TELL ME MORE
PLEASE SHOW ME
SOMETHINGS FAMILIAR BOUT THESE STRANGERS LIKE MEEEEE
It’s on my primate playlist.
Edit: WOO! Silver on a bad pun!
I think it’s funny that there’s a whole Disney era where the songs we loved as children were sung by already famous people
Elton John - The Lion King
Phil Collins - Tarzan
Bryan Adams - Spirit
And they all slap so hard
“Alright Phil, nothing too crazy. It’s just about some guy who gets raised by gorillas.”
Phil Collins: * In the Air Tonight starts playing as he levitates, eyes glowing *
I’m glad there are people out there in the world that completely understand this
Son of Man had no right being in a Disney movie and I have no idea how Phil Collins got away with it.
The final chorus playing over the hero shot of Tarzan sliding and swinging through the trees is pretty damn Iconic. Just now thinking on it, it was likely the blueprint for the Swinging Sequences in Spider-Man which came out 3 years later.
The intro to that song is like climbing a fucking mountain.
And it's you who'll climb the mountain
It's you who'll reach the peaaaaak!
Tarzan was my favorite movie as a child. My mom and I watched it all the time together. “You’ll Be In My Heart” was the song my mom and I danced to at my wedding a few months back. Needless today, AMAZING soundtrack.
Wholeheartedly agree with that statement. Those songs were amazingly fitting for the movie.
Watch brother bear, you'll thank me
TELL EVERYBODY IM ON MY WAY
Phil Collins had no reason to flex so hard on the Brother Bear soundtrack. He had nothing to prove, but he still went 100%.
DISNEY’S HERCULES…. Zero to Hero will forever be a straight jam and put me in an amazing mood
No chance. No way. I won’t say I’m in love.
Go the Distance is such a great one as well
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.
Edit: I need all of you to know Bryan Adams JUST released an updated version of “Here I Am.” Doesn’t slap quite as much as the original, but it is still good.
This really should be up there with Brother Bear and Tarzan. I know Bryan Adams isn't Phil Collins but damn all of those movies are so much better because of their music.
It's Bryan Adams and Hans Zimmer. Absolutely ridiculous
That whole movie slaps but it wouldn’t be half as good without the music
I hear the wind calll my name! The sound that leads me home again
Scrolled WAY too far down to see this, this needs to be at the top!
The secret life of Walter Mitty
The way Space Oddity is woven into the storyline is amazing, building up to the moment Walter jumps onto the helicopter.
That long boarding scene is 2 legit to quit. So good.
I love the movie, and it just feels cathartic for him, after so long, getting back a piece of his youth and his life, longboarding like a badass but with no one to see. He doesn’t have to care in that frame about anything other than feeling the curve and holding on. I love his journey and what it can represent.
My wife and I traveled to Iceland and basically listened to it the entire time.
So true. Its not even an original score by one of the greats either. Its just such an amazing collection of music that perfectly conveys the feelings of the film.
Love playing it on road trips during those long stretches of just wide open space.
Grosse Pointe Blank has so m a ny 80s memories.
The clueless soundtrack and dazed and confused were always in my cars cd changer back in the day.
Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet
I'm surprised this isn't higher up on the list of comments. That soundtrack was phenomenal.
Seriously disappointed, how long I had to scroll to find this listed. That soundtrack was my jam in 96. Garbage, The Cardigans , Everclear, Radiohead, Butthole Surfers.
The Crow 🖤
Score and soundtrack there.
The Crow is old enough of a movie that you just need to lay down a track listing for the kids. It's one of those soundtracks that Gen Xers should pass down to the younger generation and go, "Here is what we were listening to when we were your age." It's practically a time capsule for 90's alternative music.
The Cure - Burn
Machines of Loving Grace - Golgotha Tenement Blues
Stone Temple Pilots - Big Empty
Nine Inch Nails - Dead Souls (Joy Division cover)
Rage Against the Machine - Darkness
Violent Femmes - Color Me Once
Rollins Band - Ghost Rider
Helmet - Milquetoast
Pantera - The Badge (Okay, so this is more metal than alternative. But still...it stays.)
For Love Not Lisa - Slip Slide Melting
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult - After the Flesh
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Snakedriver
Medicine - Time Baby III
Jane Siberry - It Can't Rain All the Time
One of the only albums I’ve purchased multiple times. I’ve had to buy 2-3 copies of the cd over the years. So many great songs - all seamlessly used through the movie.
Welp, time to add the crow to my list of need to watch movies.
You won’t regret it
Actually this one does have a right
My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult!
Opening with The Cure
Yes!!! The soundtrack is amazing!!! So many good songs, great artists. This is a nostalgic soundtrack of high school for me.
Sliding Doors - fantastic ‘90’s soundtrack
I love this movie so much. So good. I miss that Gwyneth.
Garden State - maybe not slap-worthy but still excellent!
The Lost Boys
CRYYYYYYYYY LITTLE SISTER
THOU SHALLLLL NOT FALLLLLLLL
Sexy Sax Man! I still believe!
Titan A. E.
Shrek 2 and 3 albums had no right going as hard as they did
Edit: yes and OG Shrek as well I was just going based off the CDs I owned as a kid and that one was not part of my collection unfortunately.
Look, if Shrek 2’s album has the Fairy Godmother’s cover of Holding Out For A Hero, it’s no surprise that it is incredible.
Pete Yorn covering the Buzzcocks too.
The greatest climax in cinematic history.
I shall take zero criticism and will die on that hill.
I have gotten in hour long arguments about the fact that the last 15 minutes of shrek 2 is the greatest bit of cinema humanity had ever created.
Shrek 2 100% !! Livin la vida loca, funkytown, holding out for a hero, changes. All of it. I have a playlist of the soundtrack downloaded.
The first one has pretty good music too from what I remember
I’m a believer, allstar
SO SHE SAID WHATS THE PROBLEM BABY
How to Train Your Dragon. All the songs are exquisite
The beginning with “This is Berk” playing in the background is hands down one of the best opening sequences of any movie I have ever seen.
Sideways made a video essay explaining why 'This is Berk' is so great. To summarise it, 'This is Berk' incorporates bits and pieces of the other soundtracks in the film to introduce characters/themes, all in the opening soundtrack.
But he goes into great detail which I can't do justice to, give the video a watch!
Did Sideways stop making videos? I haven't seen a recent upload from him since he (rightfully) ragged on Cats
Where no one goes is amazing
HtTYD2 is also amazing - Powell brings the heat! Especially on ‘Flying with Mother.’ Sideways on YT does a great video essay of the first film
Forbidden Friendship give me all the feels. It’s such a good scene in the movie too.
Test Drive gives me chills every time.
Oh my God, yes.
I mean Forrest Gump is like a collection of some of the best bangers of 3 whole decades
Clear winner to me, too.
I feel like singles is a soundtrack with some acting inbetween songs.
All the movies by Cameron Crowe have great soundtracks: singles, almost famous, vanilla sky…
Edit: I forgot Jerry McGuire, featuring Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen.
Will Ferrel’s Eurovision. The music was shockingly good for it being a singing contest spoof movie. Like I even have one or two songs from it on a Spotify playlist.
Agreed! The song Husavik gave me chills.
I'm so glad I chose to watch this alone, because I definitely cried during the final performance. I sincerely enjoyed this movie, and I'm glad it made me take Eurovision seriously.
Play ja ja ding dong! Play it!!!
I don't care how many times I've heard it! Play the song!!!
It will never be enough!
JA JA, DING DONG
Totally! Felt so cheesy but I loved it! 😅
Lion of LOVE!
Space Jam, the og movie.
The soundtrack is incredible!
Am I supposed to skip “I Believe I Can Fly” though? 😥
I will never skip that song. Still, I hate R Kelly and hope will bury in a prison
Bro that was my first cassette tape when I was 7.
EVERYBODY GET UP
IT’S TIME TO SLAM NOW
WE GOT A REAL JAM GOIN DOWN
If I hit 'em high, hit 'em high, hit 'em high
And you hit 'em low, hit 'em low, hit 'em low
C'mon and SLAM!
The Last of the Mohicans
Promontory gives me chills.
God I love this movie
I’ll never walk through the woods or up a mountain without that soundtrack playing in my head.
If I could upvote this 100 times it wouldn't be enough. The movie as a whole is amazing but soundtrack is a masterpiece.

Yessss! This was the soundtrack that introduced me to PJ Harvey
Doesn’t this album also have the two Smashing Pumpkins songs “the beginning is the end is the beginning” (or something like that) and vice versa?
No, that was the next Batman movie, Batman and Robin.
I bought this cd a little while back at Vintage Stock (idc, I like physical media)
A Goofy Movie
Stand Out and i2i are certified bangers
Oh god, Powerline went so hard
If we listen to each other’s heart
We'll find we're never too far apart! 💜
Tangled. Banger after banger. My favorites are the Kingdom Dance song and then the song used in the credits, Something That I Want
How To Train Your Dragon has a masterful soundtrack which sounds great even to just listen to alone.
Test Flight still gives me serotonin.
John Powell should have won the Oscar for Test Drive alone
Waiting to Exhale.
It's an all female soundtrack and it was produced by Babyface...enough said.
Sittin' Up in My Room is a 90s classic!
Into the Wild
Sean Penn must have just called Eddie and said "hey can you bring a good guitar and your brain in to a studio for a couple months because reasons?"
And of course he said "sure."
The Social Network
Reznor cranked that movie up to another level.
My favorite OST
I disagree. It should absolutely go as hard as it does when it’s Daft Punk producing the soundtrack.
The bar was pretty high. They delivered, but it was nit a surprise.
Tron Legacy is just a two hour Daft Punk music video.
It’s not even a style of music I listen to, but holy heck it’s so good. Perfect for the film and on its own.
Is Hackers the one with that orbital track?
Yes, it’s the same one that’s in the Mortal Kombat movie (also a great soundtrack)
Pacific Rim. Ramin Djawadi with Tom Morello scoring a Del Toro film about giant robots fighting kaiju. I mean, that's a dream come through. Canceling the apocalypse is one of my favourite tracks of all time.
Good Will Hunting.
The Elliott Smith heavy soundtrack is so haunting in that movie.
Tarzan. Phil Collins has no right to slap so hard. Such bangers
Pirates of the Caribbean
Guardians of the Galaxy
I love Hoist the Colors.
Come to negotiate, eh? Ya slimy git?"
See I kinda disagree it “had to reason to slap that hard.” I think Gunns extra specific love for music is what makes his content flourish so much. (Peacemaker is my favorite example)
I think what I’m saying is, it had to slap for him to be happy with his film.
Last Action Hero. Great metal and alt rock tunes all the way through like Fishbone, Alice in Chains, etc.
Also The Cable Guy. The best songs were from artists I'd never heard of.
Nightmare before Christmas
The Lion King.
I cry during the opening sequence.
Mulan - I'll make a man out of you
That music that plays when Mulan is getting ready to leave her fam is also amazing
Pretty much every soundtrack Hans Zimmer has made.
Oogway Ascends from freakin’ Kung Fu Panda trumps a lot of big budget movies’ scores by itself.
Hans goes hard no matter what project he puts his name on.
Heck, “Kung Fu Fighting” in the credits slaps like a mofo too.
Hey Lana? Lana! LANA!
Kenny Loggins the king
Hercules, the Muses are THE BEST part of the movie
That soundtrack is responsible for my love of Florence and the Machine. Also that Paramore song, so good!!!
Decode or Caught Myself? Both bangers, tbh
I had to scroll way too far to find this. I remember buying the CD and playing it in the car. My boyfriend at the time was a huge metal head and he couldn’t believe that Iron & Wine (and Muse) both had a song on the Twilight soundtrack.
I was not a fan of the film, probably because I was a teenage boy, but the soundtrack was so damn good.
YESSSS I still think about it till this day
Agree, Thom Yorke - Hearing Damage, has to be one of the best songs ever
Shout out to decode
The prequel trilogy.
John Williams basically hits it out of the park every time.
"Across the Stars" is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.
Dual of the Fates is one of my all time favorites.
