He had a great soundtrack
Best of the Zimmer's
If you haven't heard "The Egg Travels", go listen to it now. It's magical to the Nth degree. - higgsboson2142
Outstanding score. Dark, dreary, and with a memorable adagio.
Just saw Hazel O'Connor live again, a couple of weeks ago, performing most of this soundtrack, and it still sounded fresh and inspiring. So, my partner and me, decided to watch the movie again this weekend too.
Dutch movie from 1979, featuring Herman Brood, Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich as part of cast, as well as soundtrack. Plus several Dutch bands, mainly unknown. Hilarious cover-version of 'Knockin' on Herman's (Heaven's) Door' by Nina Hagen with lyrics about Sid & Nancy.
Can't believe this is so low on this list! Too many kids are voting on this list when you see that Tarantino soundtracks are ranked higher. I mean, A soundtrack of past hits isn't really a soundtrack. It's more a compilation of songs to promote sells. In contrast the Pink Floyd were asked to write songs that match the story of the movie ( including the time of the song that were in synchronity with the time of the scene ).
Like 'La Vallee', directed by Barbet Schroeder with music by Pink Floyd, 'More' is about a heroin-addict in Ibiza. Stand-out tracks are 'The Nile Song' and 'Green is the Colour'.
Best known by the soundtracks album-title 'Obscured by Clouds' by Pink Floyd.
Julien Temple's mockumentary about the short, but exciting career of the Sex Pistols spawned a great double-album, that features, apart from some classic Pistols-songs (God save the Queen, Anarchy in the UK, etc), many brilliant cover-versions (My Way, Substitute, come on everybody, Roadrunner, (I'm not your) Steppin' Stone and a hilarious Johnny B. Goode, plus others). Also features songs by Edward Tudor-Pole (Who killed Bambi? ) and special guest Ronnie Biggs.
This OST features the best American Hardcore-Punk there is, by bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, MDC, Black Flag, Circle Kerks, Flipper, Agnostic Front, D.O.A., Adolescents and many others. Great documentary too.
In the Uk released as 'Strike back' ('81), this little known German movie has an exellent soundtrack featuring great 80's NDW-bands like Abwaerts, Tempo, Neonbabies, Extrabreit, Malaria, Blixa Bargeld and many others. My favourite is the title-track by Tempo.
