    meh.
    Most of the soundtracks mentioned are just (admittedly very good) mix tapes.



    ^ The daddy of all movie soundracks (it contributed greatly to the film's success, helping make it, at the time, the highest grossing film of all-time).

    I like the scores that are not old records, even though old record scores can be fun.

    Jarmusch’s Dead Man has a cool score and Rodriguez always creates good scores, even writing and playing some of the music himself.
    From Death till Dawn has some great music not pulled from old records.

    I saw a live performance of this with the movie screening behind the band at an old Art Deco theater.

    Of course everyone has the Saturday night fever soundtrack too

    Jaws, real nerve jangling stuff, much of the same in Psycho.

    The OP lists a bunch of songs, not a film's soundtrack. For rock, the obvious answer is Quadrophenia. But, then there's also a lot of fabulous musicals, from all of Rogers and Hammerstein's works, to West Side Story, Man of La Mancha, Oliver, Gypsy, The Roar of the Greasepaint, and Anthony Newley's other works, and many other greats. Then there's the big band era, with Glenn Miller, the Dorseys, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, etc.

    Glad to see that Mark Knopfler's soundtrack for Local Hero got an early mention in this thread, and I'll second that. It's actually a full score for the film , not a "mix tape", and it really supports the film & story beautifully. It also still holds up really well as fine listening music.

    And in addition, Local Hero is a gem of a movie - clever story, very funny, and it was Burt Lancaster's last role.
