Movies are such a powerful medium which, when done well, appeal to various senses simultaneously. Often we get caught up in the visual aspect and the score is simply background music. There are other soundtracks which stand out and in which the music will immediately recall in one's mind a particular scene or emotion from a movie.

There are too many excellent songs from movies for me to remember, so I thought you all could help me, we could help eachother, highlight some of the best tracks ever to grace the screens.

Here are a few songs that, in my estimation, perfectly compliment the imagery and plot of the movies they were created for.

I know I'm missing some great ones. Please feel free to add to our compilation!

Cold Mountain soundtrack, Jack White performs Wayfaring Stranger:



Billy the Kid soundtrack; Bob Dylan performs Billy 4:



Menace II Society; MC Eiht performs Straight Up Menace:



Requiem for a Dream; Clint Mansell and Kronos Quartet perform Lux Aeterna:



Into the Wild; Eddie Vedder performs Hard Sun:



Well, so there are a few of my favorite movie songs, ones which (imo) capture the essence of the movie.

I can't wait to hear some of yours, ATS!

Eddie Vedder did the entire 'Into the Wild' soundtrack which is an incredible album. And please ATS don't crucify me over this next one from the Jason Bourne movies.

Moby 'Extreme Ways'



Fight Club, Pixies 'Where is my Mind'

The film Excalibur used much of Carl Orff's album Carmina Burana as it's soundtrack , O Fortuna has long been a favourite of mine.


The remix of Tom Sawyer for the movie Small Soldiers , great song and remix.


Kurgan's Theme ... Queen's Gimme the Prize from Highlander ... That voice.

I could go on.
