Original Transformers movie (first mentioned here by Black_Fox) has, in my opinion, the best soundtrack of the 80's.

The semi-synth orchestral backing to Optimus Prime's death scene was a stroke of genius in my opinion. I cried my little eyes out in that scene when I watched the movie as a child.

The Death of Optimus Prine

Apart from Touch already mentioned, here are some other gems off the soundtrack:

Stan Bush - Dare

N.R.G. - Instrument of Destruction

Spectre General - Hunger

Spectre General - Nothings Gonna Stand In Our Way

Wierd Al Yankovic - Dare To Be Stupid

One of my favorite movies and one of my favorite soundtracks - Swingers.

So money.

So much good, good stuff on here, the only one that made me :bnghd: was Celine Dion!!!

This is my favourite scene from a movie ever...

I really want to put "Berzerker" from Clerks, which has an awesome soundtrack, but it'll violate T&C - hilarious though.

Anything by Wes Anderson seems to be soundtracked amazingly, I think Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo does them all(?) - certainly Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic - I really love this one.

Seu Jorge is great...

Awesome Sigur Ros...

I was very surprised by how good the Shrek soundtracks were (for the 1st two), can't find a decent video for it, but it's a good song anyway.

If anyone loves Tom Waits like me...

Awesome, thanks for nudging this back up.

Love the Blues Brothers - one of my favourite films.

This is for anyone that loves Rocky Horror, not sure this is as good - but I bought it for my girlfriend recently and really, really enjoyed it. Is there some irony with Paris Hilton in this particular video???

The always brilliant Anthony Stewart Head - my friend met him recently on a train, apparently a very friendly and nice man.

...and Sarah Brightman, wearing well.

This track is called betrayal and it really fits when it is heard in the movie..

Gotta say, love the Proclaimers and Ennio Morricone.

Hope this isn't going off topic, but I absolutely adore this. Remember when Steve Coogan was good? I absolutely love ABBA and (old) Steve Coogan, the comedic timing of this is awesome. For the non-British that might not know this, it's from a spoof chat-show, that's hosted by a totally inept Alan Partridge - I highly recommend this.

Umm, in a bit of a camp mood this morning and not happy Dirty Dancing is being remade...
Here's a classic.

Always liked this one

Again, maybe I'm stretching the rules a little here... but this is one of the most gorgeous documentary/films I've seen. It's Jim White travelling round in a beat up old car, talking to the "true" face of country (kinda).

Please don't be turned off by the word "Country" music, it's a mis-represented genre and Jim White sets it straight in this movie, some of the most awesome, raw stuff I've ever heard.
