    Yes, Purple Rain and the Wall.
    Also, if you're inclined to consider The Song Remains the Same an actual movie, that soundtrack ain't to shabby. Fair warning, some of the songs include a man endlessly moaning like a viking in heat.

    I also love Ennio Morricone. Today my favorite sound track is that from The Cinema Paradiso.

    I forgive you for your youth.
    This film established rockn roll in Europe, more so than Elvis.

    But Purple Rain is a good contender

    (in no particular order):
    Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane),
    Elmer Bernstein (to Kill a Mockingbird),
    Ennio Morricone (The good, the bad and the ugly), Gerry Goldsmith (Planet of the Apes),
    James Newton Howard (The sixth sense),
    Danny Elfman....
    ... & many of the other special mentions above.
    The list goes on. I love Prince too.

    Ima a huge Wall fan.
    But the album (1979) wasn't written for the movie (1982).
    The cart was before the horse in that case.

    My answer is the same as the last thread.
    One word and two notes.
    That word is Jaws.

    Well, one or two I favor have been mentioned like Cinema Paradiso (and many others by Morricone). My favorite Bernard Herrmann soundtrack goes to Hitchcock's North By Northwest. Then there's John Barry with Dances with Wolves. Randy Newman has some wonderful music for The Natural.

    And while it's been mentioned, one more up vote for A Hard Day's Night. For me, it starts here

    Here's 2:35 of great fun by an accomplished "boy band" all of whom show up here with an easy way in front of the camera.

    A joyful ride in the Way Back Machine for some of us.
