Must-Listen Movies: Great Soundtracks and Scores

posted by Nell Minow

Salon has a great list of must-hear movie soundtracks.  It’s wonderfully varied, with everything from “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” to an Elmer Fudd cartoon.  Composers include Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, Ennio Morricone, Willie Nelson, Prince, and Michael Jackson.  Scores with pop songs include “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” and “Beat Street.”

Some of my favorites include:

Rudy (Jerry Goldsmith)
