Best Movie Soundtracks Ever
We all know that filmmaking started without spoken dialogues, and the music was always the key. If you watch a 1910’s or 20’s movie, without a symphony, as well as a 2010’s movie without a soundtrack, something really important would be missing. Even with the best special effects and action scenes, without the color of the notes, no story would be enough. Not only that, music is so important, that many films are made as a tribute to music itself.
This review pretends to share with you the most meaningful masterpieces in the story of filmmaking. We invite you to share your own film music pleasures.
‘Purple Rain’ (1984)
‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994)
The Godfather (1972)
The very first shock that audiences got from ”The Godfather” have to be the music that ran during the opening credits.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
The soundtrack is known for its use of many classical and orchestral pieces, and credited for giving many classical pieces resurgences in popularity. The soundtrack has been re-issued multiple times: including a 1996 version and a digitally remastered version in 2010.
Kill Bill Vol. 1
The soundtrack Co-produced with The RZA – who added samples and beats to “keep the vibe going between songs”. The soundtrack album includes iconic sound effects, not to mention an excerpt from Ironside.
The comparatively huge fanbase for both the film and the original soundtrack prompted a release of a second soundtrack on October 21, 1997. This second album included songs from the film that didn’t make the cut for the first album, as well as songs that didn’t appear in the final film but were involved at earlier stages.
The Graduate (1968)
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
When it comes to soundtrack composers, Ennio Morricone is the nonpareil genius, whose distinctive original compositions, containing gunfire, whistling, and yodeling permeate the film.
Martin Scorsese chose the songs for Goodfellas only if they commented on the scene or the characters “in an oblique way”. The only rule he adhered to with the soundtrack was to only use music which could have been heard at that time.
