Top Ten Best Movie Soundtracks

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jurassic Park (John Williams)

Why is this only at Number 16? This is one of the most powerful, most inspiring movie soundtracks ever. I bet that quite a lot of the scenes in the movie, as fantastic as it is, wouldn't be as good without the soaring soundtrack.

Most epic theme ever! Awesome soundtrack, for awesome movies! Only number 38! Come on people, Jurassic Park wins, hands down! - Blubbydubber1

Such a great movie, but it's the music that really makes it memorable! Especially the Main Theme, every time I hear it that scene comes to mind.

Not as good as star wars but easily a top ten - jarjar36

22 A Hard Day's Night

A movie with all original music by THE Beatles?
Yes, that should definitely be in the #1 spot!

23 8 Mile

Really great work of Eminem "Lose Yourself" is an absolute epic song, the other songs are also great

This is the best one, cause Eminem made it with many other rapstars and it had sold 10 million copies in the world.

This post is by Eminem and this is the best most!

Eminem - VideoGamefan5

24 2001: A Space Odyssey

What's this doing so low? It's easily so memorable. I'd put it higher above the list.

The most beautiful soundtrack ever. - MontyPython

This theme is just so iconic. you hear it everywhere in culture. especially when something big's about to happen. this is alex north's best work yet.

25 The Godfather (Nino Rota)

The best soundtrack... By far!

26 Help!
27 The Nightmare Before Christmas (Danny Elfman)

Danny Elfman also does Jack's singing voice as well.

28 Back to the Future (Alan Silvestri)

Not even in the top 10? My personal favorite. - Spongebob-129

Come on what's Twilight doing above this? - Spongebob-129

Ugh, really? How to train your Dragon is above Bttf? Though not being my all time favorite movie, it DOES have the greatest soundtrack.

29 School of Rock
30 Purple Rain (Prince)
31 Goodfellas

Includes, Cream, Muddy Waters, Derek & The Dominoes and more. - BrianScott01

32 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (John Williams)

Includes the iconic theme of the original, plus many new tracks, including slave children's crusade, which is itself one of the best pieces of film score that I have ever heard.

33 The Hobbit (Howard Shore)

Although there are some really amazing sound track this can't be much lower than 5th. there's such depth and color in all of Howard shore's music but in both the hobbit and lord of the ring trilogy there is an almost incomprehensible abundance of emotion and expression. Howard shore has more music interpretive ability than possibly any human alive today. - Messej

This should at least be thirty. It's pretty good, and a lot better than twilight. - Spongebob-129

34 Once Upon a Time In the West (Ennio Morricone)

"Once Upon a Time In America" is a different movie, albeit made by the some of the same people.

"Once Upon a Time In the West" has a rich collection of themes, unlike other movies which have not more than 1 theme.
- Gaspar

This movie should be a category of its own. The sound of Morricone is too great to be in this list. Where are the other spaghettis? This is just pure ignorance people!

At least top 20. This is original compositions not a gathering of previously recorded songs.

Great movie, Great music!

35 Dirty Dancing

How is this not on here.
This is one of the most well known movie soundtraacks.

36 The Mission (Ennio Morricone)

I have an intensely physical and emotional response to this music.

What a great film and soundtrack.

37 Requiem for a Dream (Clint Mansell)

Lux Aeterna is a masterpiece, and so is the rest of the soundtrack. Every single score is flawless and compliments the film perfectly. Requiem is one of the best movies ever made.

Why is this down here?!? Come on guys this song really inspire me to make a story or even making a fighting scene in my head! This song is totally worth it!

What the hell! This SHOULD be in the top 10! You guys have asses for ears.

What?!?!? Make this #1!

38 Frozen (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Christophe Beck)

This should be near the bottom of this list it has ONE descent song on it the rest are either mediocre or just god damn annoying - christangrant

Whoever voted for this get rid of your inner teenage girl, and if you are a teenage girl, grow up - Spongebob-129

This movie's songs are way to over played - MaverickRide

39 Grease (Michael Gibson)

Boring! Doesn't hold a candle to the thrilling scores of Sherlock Holmes or Pirates of the Caribbean.

Nothing really special is it.

Really? This fake 50s trash?

40 Magical Mystery Tour (The Beatles)

The magical mystery tour is coming to take you away and coming to take you away. - malamJONES
