Not a compilation, but made for the movie. It doesn't get any better than this....
I mean, end of thread, right?
I am blowtorch and I approve this message
If you can find it, FF Coppola had an early film called The Grey Fox starring Richard Farnsworth which not only was superb, it featured The Chieftans on the soundtrack. It was an odd pairing, but The Chieftans can really evoke a mood.
Knopfler does great mood music as well. Think Princess Bride, Local Hero, Cal, etc..
Then there is Paris, Texas. Ry takes mood to another dimension. Another great one by Ry - The Long Riders - if you can find it. With David Lindley assisting.
If you can ignore the damn stars... Do NOT watch if you are epileptic!
I find it interesting that this great Smithereens song was written expressly to be used in the John Cusack movie "Say Anything", but was later nixed from inclusion
"The song was to be used in the film Say Anything..., but it was ultimately cut from the film because the producers believed the song revealed too much of the story."
It makes total sense that it was clearly written for the movie, when you hear the movie's title repeated a bunch of times, towards the end of the song
That movie's loss!
I don't really like saying 'the best' to anything, but this is one of them to me.
Not a soundtrack but a music video.
I thought it was a great movie. The scene of purifying of self in Lake Minnetonka is a fond horn dog, teenage memory.
This one I know.
It’s 2 die 4
Right? Because "guy from wrong side of town gets rich girl, and bad rich dad loses" is such a unique story. Wouldn't want to give away the story from a theme song, or anything. Nah. Let's just include the one and only lame song Peter Gabriel ever wrote. I hear it has some African chanting in it or something. That's cool and esoteric for the kids, right?
Think how cool this would have been with Smithereens coming from the boom box
Not so fast my friend.
I've heard some great soundtracks just don't remember off the top of my head but thinking it'd be something old in my case and whoever does most all the film audio soundtracks nowadays needs to be hung, shot, tarred and feathered. OMG I mean seriously who is the idiot in charge, you can't even watch anything, the speaking voice is so low you have to turn your volume up loud and then here comes an action scene and the volume blows you off the planet, you grab for volume remote to almost turn it off and then turn it back to wide open to hear speaking.
The Nightmare Before Christmas - Danny Elfman
It's where the song "Knocking On Heaven's Door" came from:
Staring Chris Kristoferson and James Coburn
Dylan himself appeared in the film as the character "Alias" the knife thrower.
Yes! Compression in movies is brutal.
