The Greatest Soundtracks of All Time – Part I
Some of the greatest soundtracks in movie history became so popular and famous just because they were something really nice and cool added to something else that was cool.
That is what happens when you put a good song to a good movie … it’s doomed to become successful.
Here is a short list of some of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time…
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
The composer Enio Morricone’s name is a synonym for unparalleled masterpiece. His unforgettable orchestration and arrangements could be heard in hit movies like Once Upon A Time In America, The Mission and so on, however, the soundtrack in the movie, “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly becomes and is still to this very date his trademark.
The spirit of rock ‘n’ roll wouldn’t have been portrayed better in the Easy Rider movie if it wasn’t for the soundtrack. The soundtrack was really spot on! Steppenwolf’s free spirited song “Born to be Wild” became the hymn of freedom seekers and rock ‘n’ roll fans.
Pat Garret and Billy the Kid
Bob Dylan’s soundtrack song “Knocking On Heaven’s Door should definitely be on this list. Dylan’s roughly sketched and raw songs border on the ramshackle and evoke the sun-scorched, dusty plains of the West marvellously.
Another genius production by Quentin Tarantino that breathed new life into the movie industry. The soundtrack song in this movie “Stuck In The Middle With You” was placed right at the very heart of the film.
The Soundtrack to the Reservoir Dogs movie cracked the door open and when the Pulp Fiction saw day light its soundtrack blew the door off its hinges…A great collection of classic songs like Misirlou by Dick Dale and His Del-Tones , Kool and The Gang’s Jungle Boogie, Dusty Springfield’s Son of a preacher man are just a small bit of what you get to hear in this epic movie.
