    Parade

    • Film: Parade
    Parade: Music from the Motion Picture Under the Cherry Moon is the eighth studio album by Prince and The Revolution. Keith Harris of Blender writes that it "makes a pop cavalcade out of the same psychedelic affectations that torpedoed [Around the World in a Day] This time it works." It was the follow-up to Around the World in a Day and the soundtrack to Prince's second film. The album sees Prince further diversifying musically, adding orchestrations to his music and presenting a very European feel. Prince also displayed a new image with Parade: his trademark ruffled shirts, wild curly hair, and purple outfits which defined his look from 1981's Controversy to 1985's Around the World in a Day gave way to slicked-back hair and dress suits. Even though the single, "Kiss", was a number one hit, the album as a whole was not well received in the U.S. Europe, however, embraced the album, and for the first time in Prince's career, European album sales eclipsed those in the U.S. This was Prince's final album released with The Revolution. The first four tracks were recorded in sequence with Prince laying down the drum track to all four in one take. Then he laid down the bass, guitar, and

    This Is Spinal Tap

    This Is Spinal Tap

    • Film: This Is Spinal Tap
    This Is Spinal Tap (or simply Spinal Tap) was the soundtrack to the film This Is Spinal Tap, released in 1984. It was re-released in 2000 with lyrics and two versions of "Christmas with the Devil" as bonus tracks. The cover art is identical to that of the fictional album Smell the Glove featured in the film. All songs written and composed by Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Rob Reiner.  Noticeably missing tracks from the film include "All the Way Home", "Lick My Love Pump", "Jazz Odyssey", and the band's a cappella performance of "Heartbreak Hotel". "All The Way Home", however, did later appear on the Break Like the Wind album, while "Jazz Odyssey" later appeared on the Back From The Dead album. "Gimme Some Money" was featured in the 1991 comedy film Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. The song "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" is featured in the video game Guitar Hero II. When played as the encore song at the end of the career mode's second tier, the in-game band's drummer spontaneously combusts upon the song's completion, a direct reference to This Is Spinal Tap. Seattle grunge band Soundgarden covered the song "Big Bottom" several times at their early

    Sivaji: The Boss

    Sivaji: The Boss

    The Sivaji soundtrack was composed by A. R. Rahman. The soundtrack album includes seven tracks while the background score featured in the Tamil film Sivaji directed by S. Shankar and produced by AVM Productions. A. R. Rahman was paid ₹ 5 Crores for the project, a milestone in Tamil film music, making Rahman the highest paid Indian music composer then. As Sivaji became a major anticipated project, several false rumours about the soundtrack of the film were disseminated to websites and magazines. Despite the fact that early on during the project, Vairamuthu confirmed he had written a song called "Vaa..ji Vaa..ji Sivaji", no other major details about any other song was mentioned. Rumours went around that certain singers had sung in the project, including Rajinikanth. However, on 11 October 2006, the source, Behindwoods.com, mentioned that they had received credible information that Sivaji contained seven songs, five of which were set to be in the audio, with the other two being situational songs. Surprisingly, they also mentioned the five songs which were in the album. "Vaa...ji Vaa...ji Sivaji" was mentioned to be the opening song of the film. They also reported that a philosophical

    Sword of the Berserk

    Sword of the Berserk

    Sword of the Berserk: Guts Rage original soundtrack (ベルセルク 千年帝国の鷹篇 喪失花の章 Original Game Soundtrack) is a soundtrack for the first Berserk video game: Sword of the Berserk, a Dreamcast game based on the popular manga series Berserk. The soundtrack was a Japan-only release. The video game soundtrack CD's inlay art uses the seventh comic book's cover. As the OST CD was released in Japan the 15th of December, a year 2000 Berserk calendar and collector stickers were included in the first-pressing limited edition. Susumu Hirasawa, who did most of the music for the Berserk anime, composed all of the game's soundtrack. He also performs the Forces II opening theme as well as the ending theme Indra with his own vocals, like in his solo work. The game is known in Japan as Berserk Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Flower of Oblivion hence the mandragora (mandrake) flower on the soundtrack cover.

    • Film: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
    The soundtrack to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was released by Sony Classical on May 3, 2005, more than two weeks before the release of the film. The music was composed and conducted by John Williams, and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and London Voices. John Williams was also composer and conductor of the score for the other five films in the Star Wars saga. Shawn Murphy recorded the score, and Ramiro Belgardt and Kenneth Wannberg served as music editors. Thus, Kenneth Wannberg served as music editor for all six Star Wars scores. A music video titled A Hero Falls was created for the film's theme, Battle of the Heroes, featuring footage from the film.

    Tomorrow Never Dies

    Tomorrow Never Dies

    • Film: Tomorrow Never Dies
    Tomorrow Never Dies is the soundtrack of the 18th James Bond film of the same name. David Arnold composed the score of Tomorrow Never Dies, his first full Bond soundtrack. Arnold came to the producer's attention due to his successful cover interpretations in Shaken and Stirred: The David Arnold James Bond Project—which featured major artists performing classic James Bond title songs. The theme tune was chosen through a competitive process. There were approximately twelve submissions; including songs from Swan Lee, Pulp, Saint Etienne, Marc Almond, Sheryl Crow and David Arnold. Arnold's entry—"Tomorrow Never Dies," sung by k.d. lang—a bold, brassy number in the classic John Barry/Shirley Bassey vein, was chosen as the official theme song, and Arnold heavily incorporated elements of the song throughout the film's score. However, similar to the last-minute theme song switch that occurred with Thunderball three decades earlier, shortly before the film's release, the producers replaced Arnold and lang's theme with Sheryl Crow's, as Crow was a much bigger name at the time; Arnold's theme was re-titled "Surrender" and moved to the end credits. The score itself follows Barry's classical

    Superman III

    Superman III

    • Film: Superman III
    Superman III: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, based on the film Superman III, features contributions by Ken Thorne and various artists and was released in 1983. As with the previous sequel, the musical score was composed and conducted by Ken Thorne, using the Superman theme and most other themes from the first film composed by John Williams, but this time around there is more original music by Thorne than the Williams re-arrangements. To capitalize on the popularity of synthesizer pop, Giorgio Moroder was hired to create songs for the film, though their use in the film is minimal. Superman III was the first of the films to have a score and soundtrack on the same release. Side A was devoted to 14 minutes of Ken Thorne's score (including new material such as a comedic cue that corresponds with the opening slapstick sequence, a theme for Richard Pryor's character, Gus Gorman, and the climactic fight between Clark Kent and Evil Superman). Side B was devoted to music by pop mogul Giorgio Moroder. He specifically contributed a synthesized version of the "Superman II March", but wasn't used in the film. He also created a new love theme for Clark and Lana Lang. He contributed three

    The score to the movie The Good Thief was produced and arranged by Elliot Goldenthal; whilst the score music is generally received favourably one major complaint is that it is too short and that the other tracks supersede Goldenthal's scoring work, it contains eight pieces by him and other artists including Cheb Khaled, Serge Gainsbourg, Johnny Hallyday and Bono; the song Bono covers is the Frank Sinatra song "That's Life", produced, with a string arrangement, by Goldenthal. The original score cues were performed by both The London Metropolitan Orchestra and The Irish Film Orchestra.

    Sin City: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the soundtrack to the 2005 film Sin City. It features music composed by Robert Rodriguez, John Debney and Graeme Revell, performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony, as well as the orchestral track "Sensemayá" from Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas and the electronica piece "Absurd" by Fluke. Because the film is based on different comic book stories (written by Frank Miller), each composer was assigned to score a different story. Revell scored the music to The Hard Goodbye (Rodriguez co-scored for tracks four, six and eight); Debney scored The Big Fat Kill (Rodriguez co-scored tracks eleven and twelve); Rodriguez scored That Yellow Bastard as well as the opening credits sequence and the first track in the end credits. The song featured in the trailers and television spots was an instrumental version of the song "Cells" by The Servant and briefly appeared in the movie as a sample. Jerry McCulley of Amazon.com says, "While their largely synth-driven cues tend naturally towards brooding atmospheric soundscapes, their tense electro-rhythms are seasoned with bracing doses of sinewy, sensual sax and dotted with the occasional bongo

    The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home: The Soundtrack is the third most recent installment in the Bob Dylan "Bootleg Series" of rare and/or officially unissued recordings. It was released in 2005 in conjunction with the Martin Scorsese television documentary on Dylan, called No Direction Home, which aired in late September, and features previously unreleased material from Dylan's formative years to his legendary 1966 world tour. The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home: The Soundtrack was compiled with Scorsese's input. It fared well commercially, debuting on the Billboard 200 album chart on September 17, 2005 at number 16, with sales of 50,987 copies. It remained on the chart for 11 weeks. It was certified a gold record on October 21, 2005 by the RIAA. It also reached #21 in the UK. The project eventually titled as No Direction Home began to take shape in 1995 when Dylan's manager, Jeff Rosen, began scheduling interviews with Dylan's friends and associates. Among those interviewed were poet Allen Ginsberg and folk musician Dave Van Ronk, both of whom died before the film was ever completed.

The styles of these songs vary between pop, blues, country and rock. The remaining eleven pieces are orchestral scores composed and conducted by Randy Newman. At the 49th Grammy Awards the soundtrack was nominated for the Best Compilation Soundtrack Album, while the John Mayer version of "Route 66" was also nominated for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and "Our Town" won the award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.

On November 25, 2006, the soundtrack's position on the Billboard 200 shot up from #126 to #47, with a 209% sales increase of 25,000 units. This was most likely due to the holiday season and the fact that Cars was released on DVD. This was the first Pixar soundtrack to ever achieve Gold Certification in the United States.

    Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants

    • Film: The Secret Life of Plants
    Stevie Wonder's Journey Through "The Secret Life of Plants" is an album by Stevie Wonder, originally released on the Tamla Motown label on October 30, 1979 (see 1979 in music). It is the soundtrack to the documentary The Secret Life of Plants, directed by Walon Green which was based on the book of the same name by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. Wonder created the film score through a complex process of collaboration. The film's producer, Michael Braun, described each visual image in detail, while the sound engineer, Gary Olzabal, specified the length of a passage. This information was processed to a four-track tape (with the film's sound on one of the tracks), leaving Wonder space to add his own musical accompaniment. The result is an underscore that, at times, closely mimics the visual images on the screen. The film was seen by few people, severing whatever connection the music may have had to actual visual images. Motown decided to release the album on its own as the long-awaited sequel to Stevie Wonder's 1976 Grammy Award-winning Songs in the Key of Life. Journey through the Secret Life of Plants was panned by many critics and was confusing to many fans, who didn't know

    Shine a Light is the soundtrack to The Rolling Stones concert film of the same name, directed by Martin Scorsese. It was released on 1 April 2008 in the UK by Polydor Records and one week later in the US by Interscope Records. Two different versions were released, one a double disc and the other a single disc. Shine a Light is the ninth concert album to be released by the Rolling Stones. This collection, like the two 2006 shows it was culled from, features no performances of songs from their 2005 album A Bigger Bang. The two-disc version features all but two of the songs played on the two nights; the missing numbers are "Undercover of the Night" (included as a bonus track on the Japanese edition and as a download on iTunes Store) and "Honky Tonk Women". Shine a Light features several guest performers: Jack White, of The White Stripes, performs on "Loving Cup"; Christina Aguilera appears on "Live with Me"; and bluesman Buddy Guy performs on Muddy Waters' "Champagne and Reefer". The album was very well received, especially in the UK, where it debuted at #2, selling 23,013 copies in its first week - the best chart position for a Rolling Stones concert album since 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's

    Alien

    Alien

    • Film: Alien
    The iconic, avant-garde score to the film Alien was composed by Jerry Goldsmith and is considered by some to be one of his best, most visceral scores. Rather than focusing on themes, Goldsmith creates a bleak and dissonant soundscape that fits the film's dark and intense atmosphere, with only a few "romantic" cues. The music was performed by The National Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Lionel Newman. However, the music was not originally used or heard as intended. The score was substantially cut for the released versions of the film, and some recordings from other sources were added, notably portions of Goldsmith's original score for the 1962 film Freud (which were that film's Main Title, as well as the tracks Charcot's Show and Desperate Case), and the second movement (adagio) from Howard Hanson's 1930 "Symphony No. 2, Romantic" for the film's end credits. The complete intended score was first released as an isolated track on a 1999 20th Anniversary DVD edition on 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment (it has subsequently appeared on budget DVD and Blu-ray releases of the film). On November 15, 2007, Intrada Records released this same intended score with additional alternate

    Superfly

    • Film: Superfly
    Super Fly is the third studio album by American soul and funk musician Curtis Mayfield, released in July 1972 on Curtom Records. It was released as the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film of the same name. Widely considered a classic of 1970s soul and funk music, Super Fly was a nearly immediate hit. Its sales were bolstered by two million-selling singles, "Freddie's Dead" (#2 R&B, #4 Pop) and the title track (#5 R&B, #8 Pop). Super Fly is one of the few soundtracks to out-gross the film it accompanied. Super Fly, along with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, was one of the pioneering soul concept albums, with its then-unique socially aware lyrics about poverty and drug abuse making the album stand out. The film and the soundtrack may be perceived as dissonant, since the Super Fly film holds rather ambiguous views on drug dealers, whereas Curtis Mayfield's position is far more critical. Like What's Going On, the album was a surprise hit that record executives felt had little chance at significant sales. Due to its success, Mayfield was tapped for several film soundtracks over the course of the decade. Super Fly was originally released in 1972 on Curtom Records in both LP and 8-track

    • Film: Legend
    Legend is a soundtrack album released in 1986 by the German band Tangerine Dream for the North American theatrical version of the film Legend, issued a year earlier in Europe. The film was written by William Hjortsberg, produced by Arnon Milchan, directed by Ridley Scott and released domestically by Universal Studios. After a disappointing test screening with Jerry Goldsmith's original orchestral score, Scott decided to make changes to the film. Sidney Sheinberg, president of MCA (the parent company of Universal at the time), felt that the Goldsmith score would not appeal to the youth and pressed Scott for a new score. Tangerine Dream was contracted to complete a new, more contemporary score—-a job they completed in three weeks. Until 2002, only European audiences could see Legend with Goldsmith's score. "Loved By The Sun" is a vocal version of "Unicorn Theme" with lyrics written and sung by Jon Anderson of Yes. The vocals were added after Tangerine Dream had composed the instrumental music. It was originally recorded with vocals by Susanne Pawlitzki based on William Blake's poem "The Angel," but was rejected in favor of the Jon Anderson version. "Unicorn Theme" has been played

    Natural Born Killers is the soundtrack to the film Natural Born Killers, produced by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Reznor reportedly produced the soundtrack using a portable Pro Tools in his hotel room while on tour. On his approach to compiling the soundtrack, Reznor told MTV: I suggested to Oliver [Stone] to try to turn the soundtrack into a collage-of-sound, kind of the way the movie used music: make edits, add dialog, and make it something interesting, rather than a bunch of previously released music. Some songs were written especially for the film or soundtrack, such as "Burn" by Nine Inch Nails. Also includes samples of "Leader of the Pack" by the Shangri-Las, and Steven Jesse Bernstein's "No No Man-Part 1" The bathroom scene of this film contains a non-credited selection from the Melvins Houdini; more specifically the surrealist percussion track titled "Spread Eagle Beagle". Various colloquial rumors surround the genesis of this track, including one that it was done by Kurt Cobain. In the scene which depicts Mickey and Mallory's first meeting as a sitcom parody entitled "I Love Mallory", the following pieces of music are also heard: "Happy-Go-Lively" by Laurie Johnson,

    • Film: The Last Samurai
    Whether Tom Cruise's portrayal of a 19th century American soldier cum samurai warrior will be remembered with the same pangs of pop-cultural bemusement that befell John Wayne playing Genghis Khan remains to be seen. But its musical soundtrack does mark an auspicious occasion: pop musician-turned-composer Hans Zimmer's 100th score since beginning his film career in 1988. A pioneer of fusing both the electronic and orchestral and the Westernized with the indigenous, Zimmer does both here with skill, drawing heavily on samples of the traditional Taiko (a massive Japanese drum) for its rhythmic action sequences, while constructing a melodic Western motif for Cruise's character that's both centerpiece and counterpoint for the score's transcultural intent. Aside from the brief, ominous thunder of the expected action/suspense boilerplate, Zimmer has constructed passages of gentle, Asian-inflected pastoralism that have parallels with much of his evocative work on The Thin Red Line. Those cues are the score's very soul, a canvas against which his more traditional themes reverberate all the stronger

    Justine

    • Film: Justine
    JUSTINE, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. (1969). Music by Jerry Goldsmith. Jerry Goldsmith's score for George Cukor's 1969 film Justine, titled after book one of the four Lawrence Durrell novels known jointly as The Alexandria Quartet. The score is extremely exotic and exceptionally flavourful. Goldsmith's mystical melodies were spiced with recorder, auto harp and sitar and he succeeded well in producing an intoxicating work that stands proudly as a highly unique and individual opus among his other truly extraordinary and more famous work of the time. As was not uncommon at the time, the release of a soundtrack album brought about an entirely new recording of the music. For the new recording, the composer relocated to London and even composed a couple of new pieces which would be exclusive to the album. Other than this, the rethinking of the score for LP presentation consisted largely of resequencing the music and retitling some of the film's cues. But along with the album recording, this CD presents the original soundtrack recording from the film.

    Alien vs. Predator is the official soundtrack album of the 2004 science fiction film Alien vs. Predator. Composed by Austrian Harald Kloser, Kloser was chosen by the film's director Paul W.S. Anderson as he was an enthusiastic fan of the series. The score is completely orchestral and was released on August 31, 2004. The soundtrack received mixed reviews from critics. Mike Brennan thought it "lacks the ingenuity of the previous trilogy and the Predator scores, which all shared a strong sense of rhythm in place of thematic content. Kloser throws in some interesting percussion cues ("Antarctica" and "Down the Tunnel"), but more as a sound effect than a consistent motif." John Fallon of JoBlo.com compared it to character development in the movie, "too generic to completely engage or leave a permanent impression." James Christopher Monger of Allmusic awarded the album 3.5 out of 5, and thought Kloser introduced electronic elements well, and called "Alien vs. Predator Main Theme" a, "particularly striking and serves as a continuous creative source for the composer to dip his baton in".

    A studio recording of a symphonic suite from John Williams' soundtrack score of "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind". Recorded in London, 1978. It includes a selection of other compositions by various composers. The recording features a symphonic suite of music composed by John Williams for Steven Spielberg's 1977 film Close Encounters of The Third Kind. This studio album was performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorale, and recorded at the now-defunct CTS studios, Wembley, London. As was standard practice at the time, the album producer hired the John Williams' orchestrations as well as the session orchestra specifically for the album. The composer was not present at the recording. The album also includes some musical compositons not attached to any film but reflecting a "space theme" concept. These selections were written by an assortment of composers (not Williams) and the styles vary from orchestral — "Orion" to ambient — "P.O.B. 734 and "Sky Ride", utilizing the-then contemporary synthesized sound. The credited composers are A. Bunny, Paul Fishman and J. Johnson. The orchestral sessions were conducted by Frank Barber.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl soundtrack is the official soundtrack album from the homonymous film. The album was released on July 22, 2003, by Walt Disney Records and contains selections of music from the movie's score. The music of the film and this album are both credited to composer Klaus Badelt and producer Hans Zimmer. Composer Alan Silvestri was originally hired to write the score for The Curse of the Black Pearl. However, due to creative differences between the producer Jerry Bruckheimer and him, Silvestri left the project and Gore Verbinski asked Hans Zimmer, with whom he had worked on The Ring, to step in. Zimmer declined to do the bulk of the composing, as he was busy scoring The Last Samurai, a project during which he claimed he had promised not to take any other assignments. As a result he referred Verbinski to Klaus Badelt, a relatively new composer who had been a part of Remote Control Productions (known as Media Ventures at the time) for three years. Zimmer however ended up collaborating with Badelt to write most of the score's primary themes. Zimmer said he wrote most of the tunes in the space of one night, and then recorded them in an

The album was released under the name The George Martin Orchestra, The Family Way (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). The Family Way won an Ivor Novello Award in 1967 and was remastered and released on CD in 1996 with new musical compositions not on the original 1967 soundtrack album. This January 1967 recording is sometimes considered to be the first Beatles solo album, but most critics consider George Harrison's Wonderwall Music, also a soundtrack album, from November 1968, to be the first, because it was released under George Harrison's name while The Family Way was credited to George Martin. A 45rpm single was also issued in 1966 featuring "Theme From 'The Family Way'" and "Love in the Open Air", on United Artists UP1165. Following a 2003 CD reissue in mono, in 2011 a new remastered version of the soundtrack was released by Varese Vintage that featured the original 1967 score by Paul McCartney in the original sequence, remastered from the original first generation

    The score to the James Cameron film Aliens was composed by James Horner. Released in 1986, it was one of his first major Hollywood scores. The score itself includes musical references to Gayane's Adagio from Aram Khachaturian's Gayane ballet suite, which had been used in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). The score also uses musical motifs, sound treatments and excerpts from Jerry Goldsmith's original soundtrack to Alien (1979). Additional cues taken from Jerry Goldsmith's Alien score were used in the climax of the film when Horner was unable to finish some cues to Cameron's satisfaction. The film's editors also reportedly altered the score's chronological flow, sometimes looping, truncating or removing the music and placing it in fragmented form in the film out of context. Despite production issues, it was nominated for an Academy Award in 1986. It was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. The soundtrack album was released the following year, in 1987.

    Imagine: John Lennon is a soundtrack album of popular music composed by John Lennon for the 1988 documentary film, Imagine: John Lennon. Originally released that year as a double album, it now remains available on one CD. Bridging his two musical phases together, as a member of The Beatles and a solo artist (similar to George Harrison's earlier The Best of George Harrison), Imagine: John Lennon is a career-spanning collection of Lennon's many musical highlights. In addition there are a couple of heretofore unreleased recordings: an acoustic demo of "Real Love" taped in 1979 (an alternate recording of which would be finished by The Beatles for 1996' s Anthology 2) and a rehearsal take of "Imagine" in mid-1971 before the final take was captured. It also features for the first time a clean-intro version of "A Day in the Life", that would appear later on the CD release of The Beatles' 1967–1970 compilation. Imagine: John Lennon, with its wealth of stock Lennon footage and self-narration, proved to be a well-received film and its soundtrack sold well in the US, reaching #31 and going gold.

    • Film: Tron: Legacy
    Tron: Legacy is the soundtrack to the 2010 film of the same name, released by Walt Disney Records on December 3, 2010. It is the first film score by French music duo Daft Punk. Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski and music supervisor Jason Bentley approached Daft Punk and requested that the duo compose the film score. When asked why he wished to work with the duo, Kosinski replied, "How could you not at least go to those guys?" The film producers initially attempted to reach Daft Punk in 2007, but the duo had been unavailable due to their Alive 2006/2007 tour. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk had previously produced the soundtrack to Gaspar Noé's 2002 film Irréversible. Noé had asked Bangalter to compose the soundtrack to the film Enter the Void, but Bangalter was working on Tron: Legacy at the time and instead served as sound effects director. The score of Tron: Legacy features an 85-piece orchestra, recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London. Kosinski stated that the score is intended to be a mixture of orchestral and electronic music. Daft Punk's score was arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese, who stated he is a fan of Daft Punk as a duo and as solo artists. The band

    • Film: The Last Temptation of Christ
    Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ is a musical album released in 1989 by Peter Gabriel. It is his second soundtrack and eighth album overall. It was originally composed as the soundtrack for the film The Last Temptation of Christ, but Gabriel spent several months after the film's release further developing the music, finally releasing it as a full-fledged album instead of a "movie soundtrack". It is seen as a landmark in the popularisation of world music, and it won a Grammy in 1990 for Best New Age Album. It was remastered with most of Gabriel's catalogue in 2002. As the soundtrack for the film, Gabriel used the resources of the organisation he founded, WOMAD, to bring together musicians from the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. He worked with them to create music meant to enhance the mood of the film, but also added a modern ambient musical touch to the original pieces, producing a musical work that has influenced many musicians in the years since its release. Passion introduced many listeners to such artists as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Youssou N'Dour, L. Shankar, and Baaba Maal. Later in the year a companion album was released, Passion – Sources, featuring

    The Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets original motion picture soundtrack was released on 12 November 2002. The score was originally slated to be conducted entirely by John Williams, but due to scheduling conflicts with the scoring of Steven Spielberg's film Catch Me If You Can, composer William Ross was brought in to conduct the scoring sessions in London with the London Symphony Orchestra. From what can be heard in the soundtrack, there are six new themes, representing Gilderoy Lockhart, the Chamber of Secrets, Dobby the House Elf, Moaning Myrtle, Fawkes the phoenix, and the spiders. Upon its release, the soundtrack was available in one of five different collectible covers. Each cover featured a different character or characters packaged above the main cover featuring Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The soundtrack was a Grammy nominee for the Best Motion Picture Soundtrack in 2003. It charted on the Billboard 200 at 81, and also charted at five on the Top Soundtracks Chart.

    Heat is the soundtrack album to the 1995 film Heat. The score is compiled mostly with Elliot Goldenthal's orchestrations although there are a variety of other artists featured including U2/Brian Eno project Passengers, Lisa Gerrard, Moby and Terje Rypdal. The track "New Dawn Fades" is only a part of the whole song that fades into the next track and the track "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters" is slightly different from the version used in the film, the version on the score is from Moby's album Everything Is Wrong and the version in the film appears later on his 1997 album I Like to Score; Goldenthal composed and arranged the Kronos Quartet performed pieces. The Einstürzende Neubauten track "Armenia" was taken from their 1983 album Zeichnungen des Patienten O. T. and was used by Michael Mann again in his 1999 film The Insider. Goldenthal composed a cue called "Hand in Hand" originally meant to be played over the end scene, but it was replaced by Moby's "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters", so he used it, replacing guitars with bagpipes, instead for the end titles to Michael Collins. A clip of the track as it was meant to be heard in Heat can be heard below. There is also

    Alien³

    The avante garde Alien³ score was written for the motion picture of the same name. Scored by Elliot Goldenthal, it was his first big mainstream score; he described it as an experiment and spent a whole year creating it. Goldenthal cites the score as one of his six stand-out soundtracks. Whilst creating the score in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles riots of 1992 were going on and he has noted that the wild and tempestuous atmosphere in the city was an influence on the score's dark and visceral sound. In 1995, the Industrial band Front Line Assembly sampled the cue "Agnus Dei" on the track "Infra Red Combat" from the album Hard Wired. Movie-wave.net said that most of the cues are quite "dissonant" and "bleak" for a casual movie score listener. Allmusic described it as "...mandatory for all serious enthusiasts of film music." The menacing cue that comes with the opening sequence of the Sulaco being evacuated by the on-board computer because of the alien presence and fire. This sample is taken from the part where the escape pod is hurtling through the planet's atmosphere. Cue of the failed attempt to capture the alien.

    Fun in Acapulco is the nineteenth album by Elvis Presley, released on RCA Victor Records in mono and stereo, LPM/LSP 2756, in November 1963 - the November 1 date is disputed. Recording sessions took place at Radio Recorders in Hollywood on January 22 and 23, 1963, and at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee, on May 26 and 27, 1963. It peaked at #3 on the Top Pop Albums chart. The album, along with the accompanying film, would be Presley's last release before the arrival of Beatlemania. The third of his tropical travelogue films for Paramount Pictures after Blue Hawaii and Girls! Girls! Girls! finds Elvis frolicing south of the border. The standard stable of songwriters for Presley delivered songs to match, with titles like "Marguerita," "El Toro," "You Can't Say No In Acapulco," and "The Bullfighter Was A Lady." Included as well was the old standard "Guadalajara" by Pepe Guízar from the 1930s. With the change from the normal routine, and with the addition of trumpet players Rudolph Loera and Anthony Terran, Presley engaged the material with greater enthusiasm than on recent soundtrack outings. Four of these songs would be included on the 1995 compilation of soundtrack highlights:

    Shaft is a double album by Isaac Hayes, recorded for Stax Records' Enterprise label as the soundtrack LP for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's 1971 Soul Cinema Classic film Shaft. The album mostly consists of instrumentals composed by Hayes as score for the film. Three vocal selections are included: "Soulsville", "Do Your Thing", and "Theme from Shaft". A commercial and critical success, Shaft is Hayes' best-known work and the best-selling LP ever released on a Stax label. Hayes initially became involved with Shaft in hopes of having director Gordon Parks cast him in the title role, but was not aware that Richard Roundtree had already been cast as John Shaft. Hayes did appear in the film in a cameo role, but, more significantly, composed the film's score. While the film was still in production, Parks sent Hayes raw footage of some of the film's scenes, and Hayes wrote three pieces for the scenes: "Theme from Shaft" for the opening title sequence, "Soulsville" for a scene in which Shaft walks through Harlem, and "Ellie's Love Theme" for a love scene. Pleased with the results, MGM hired Hayes to compose the rest of the score, and the musician spent two months working between tour dates on the

The album shipped over two million copies and won the Soundtrack of the Year award at the 1995 Source Awards. The soundtrack is also notable for the inclusion of the track "Pain", which was hip-hop artist 2Pac's debut for the Death Row label.

The Lyndhurst Orchestra performing the score was conducted by Gavin Greenaway. The album won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and was also nominated for the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Score ("Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music"). Well-reviewed by critics (popular score review sites Filmtracks, Moviewave, and Scorereviews all give it overall positive reviews) and fans (370 Amazon.com reviews with a 4.5 avg. rating) alike, this score has attained admirable commercial stock in the film music world. Not since James Horner's Titanic soundtrack (which sold millions) had a movie score been in such high demand. On February 27, 2001, nearly a year after the first soundtrack's release, Decca released Gladiator: More Music From the Motion Picture.

    The score to the psychological thriller In Dreams by Elliot Goldenthal is an avante-garde work filled with his trademark techniques and dissonance. Composed in 1999 and working again with frequent collaborator Neil Jordan, it also features songs by Roy Orbison and The Andrews Sisters. Stylistically similar to his score for Heat with the use of dark, at times deliberately off-key, electric guitars layered upon one another (a technique he has referred to as a "guitar orchestra") over string and brass arrangements typical of his style, using Deaf Elk for this purpose and employing the use of a string quartet; also with this score, as in Titus, his use of saxophone (played by Bruce Williamson) is very off-beat, earthy and avant-garde. The dark mood is off-set with more delicate piano and string pieces; also the use of electronic arrangements (produced by Richard Martinez), something Goldenthal embraced on this score. The score also features three tracks by other artists including one, "Dream Baby", with lyrics by Neil Jordan, vocals by Elizabeth Fraser and music by Goldenthal. The Orchestral music was performed by the London Metropolitan Orchestra. this track exemplifies his sharp,

The track "Pressing Judgment" is used in Goldenthal's score for Titus in a slightly longer version incorporating elements of that film's theme. Due to a typographical error on the Titus score, however, that track is actually called "Aaron's Plea".

Taking seven months to write and record, Frizzell included strange sound elements such as a gong and rub rods, to create a unique score. It was released on November 11, 1997. Steven McDonald of Allmusic thought it was "A dark and stormy score that fits the cold atmosphere of the film perfectly", awarding 4 out of 5 stars. Matt Peterson of Track Sounds, however, was negative stating, "it is quite disarrayed and incoherent. The lack of any solid thematic material hurts the viability of this music for the film, and destroys its listening potential on CD."

    Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke

    • Film: Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke
    Up in Smoke, directed by Lou Adler, is Cheech and Chong's first feature-length film, released in 1978 by Paramount Pictures. It stars Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, Edie Adams, Strother Martin, and Stacy Keach. Cheech & Chong had been a comedy team for about ten years before they started reworking some of their material for their first film. Much of the film was shot in Los Angeles, California, including scenes set in Tijuana, Mexico. Scenes set on the Mexican border were actually filmed at the border in Yuma, Arizona. Tommy Chong plays Anthony 'Man' Stoner, a jobless, marijuana-smoking drummer who is told to either get a job by sundown or be sent off to military school by his parents. Anthony leaves the house in a Volkswagen Beetle convertible (which had his father's Rolls Royce radiator grill on the front in an attempt to cool the mid-engine), a car which is subsequently left smoking on the side of the road. Anthony is picked up while hitchhiking by the equally enthusiastic smoker Pedro de Pacas (Cheech Marin). The license plate reads MUF DVR ("Muff Diver"). They share a large joint, which Chong's character says is made with "mostly Maui wowie" and "Labrador" (essentially dog feces,

    • Film: Journey Through the Past
    Journey Through the Past is a soundtrack album from the film of the same name by Neil Young, released in November of 1972 on Reprise Records, catalogue 6480. It peaked at #45 on the Billboard 200, and since its initial release on vinyl, cassette tape, reel-to-reel tape, and 8-track tape cartridge it has remained out of print. It has never been issued on compact disc, and is one of the rarest items in Young's discography. Journey features music mainly from four sources: television broadcasts with Buffalo Springfield; live recordings with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; rehearsal outtakes from the Harvest sessions with The Stray Gators; and recordings by The Tony and Susan Alamo Christian Foundation Orchestra and Chorus. It functions in part as a retrospective of Young's work, the first of his career. Side one, tracks one and two are performed by Buffalo Springfield. The medley on track one are studio recordings, including a rare alternate version of "Mr. Soul", mimed to by the group for the television program The Hollywood Palace on January 20, 1967. The second selection derives from the group's appearance in 1967 on The Ed Sullivan Show. Side one, tracks three and four, and side two,

    Stranger Than Fiction

    Stranger than Fiction: Music From The Motion Picture is the soundtrack to the 2006 film Stranger than Fiction which was directed by Marc Forster and written by Zach Helm. The music for this soundtrack includes original scores arranged by the collaborative effort of Brian Reitzell (Redd Kross, soundtracks for Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides, and Thumbsucker) and Britt Daniel (singer/songwriter of Spoon), as well as an eclectic mix of indie rock songs from various artists including Spoon. In the film, nearly all of the Spoon songs heard are instrumental versions; however, in the actual soundtrack, they include the vocals as well. When asked about the collaboration, Reitzell commented: “When I was approached to do the music for Stranger than Fiction, I thought it might be the perfect occasion for Britt Daniel and I to collaborate...I was basically scoring the film with Spoon songs - it created a kind of sonic thread that had just the right amount of nervy melody and rich, simplistic tone I thought suited Zach's story and Marc's vision of the film. The actual ‘job’ of scoring that Britt and I were so excited about doing together became a much easier task

Goldenthal's feelings on the score: Allmusic wrote that "What could have amounted to little more than a giant mess is in fact Goldenthal's most sophisticated and ambitious score to date..." This track features vocals by Goldenthal. This track exemplifies the duality of the score. Typical Goldenthalian brass and horns dominate this track.

Largely composed of works by Aimee Mann, enough such that she receives a title billing on the album, the album also features tracks by Gabrielle, Supertramp, and Jon Brion. Many of the songs feature prominently within the film, with "Wise Up" even being sung by the cast at one point, but only two of the songs were written expressly for the film, those being "You Do" and "Save Me". "Save Me" would garner Mann an Academy Award nomination for Best Song, losing to Phil Collins' contribution to Tarzan. The tracks "Deathly", "Driving Sideways", and "You Do" show up on Aimee Mann's following album, Bachelor No. 2, though the track "Save Me" replaces "Driving Sideways" on EU editions. "Nothing is Good Enough", here an instrumental, appears in lyrical form on that album. (Bachelor also includes "Red Vines", a song Mann wrote about director Anderson.) The beginning of the song "You Could Make a Killing" and the bit that appears after the track "It's Not Safe", both from I'm with Stupid, also appear briefly in the beginning of the film, but the tracks do not appear on

    Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid is the twelfth studio album and first soundtrack album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released in July 1973 by Columbia Records for the Sam Peckinpah film, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Dylan himself appeared in the film as the character "Alias". Consisting of primarily instrumental music and inspired by the movie itself, the soundtrack included "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", which became a trans-Atlantic Top 20 hit. A gold record, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid reached #16 US and #29 UK. Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid scriptwriter Rudy Wurlitzer, who was a previous acquaintance of Dylan's, asked him to provide a couple of songs for the movie. Dylan performed "Billy" for director Peckinpah, who found the performance very moving and offered Dylan an acting part on the spot. The role he ended up getting was a character named Alias. In November 1972, Dylan and his family moved to Durango, Mexico, where filming took place. Filming lasted from late 1972 to early 1973. Dylan's first session for the Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid soundtrack was on January 20, 1973 at CBS Discos Studios in Mexico City. The only song from that day that was included on the

    • Film: Elevator to the Gallows
    Ascenseur pour l'échafaud is an album by jazz musician Miles Davis. It was recorded at Le Poste Parisien Studio in Paris on December 4 and 5, 1957. The album features the musical cues for the 1958 Louis Malle film Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. Jean-Paul Rappeneau, a jazz fan and Malle's assistant at the time, suggested asking Miles Davis to create the film's soundtrack – possibly inspired by the Modern Jazz Quartet's recording for Roger Vadim's Sait-on jamais (Does One Ever Know), released a few months earlier in 1957. Davis was booked to perform at the Club Saint-Germain in Paris for November 1957. Rappeneau introduced him to Malle, and Davis agreed to record the music after attending a private screening. On December 4, he brought his four sidemen to the recording studio without having had them prepare anything. Davis only gave the musicians a few rudimentary harmonic sequences he had assembled in his hotel room, and, once the plot was explained, the band improvised without any precomposed theme, while edited loops of the musically relevant film sequences were projected in the background.

    Jaws is an American film franchise that consists of a novel, four films, a theme park ride, and other tie-in merchandise. The franchise primarily focuses on a great white shark, and its attacks on people in specific areas of the United States. The Brody family is featured in all of the films as the primary antithesis to the shark. The original film was based on a novel written by Peter Benchley, which itself was inspired by the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916. Benchley would adapt his own work, along with help from Carl Gottlieb and Howard Sackler, into the 1975 film Jaws, which was directed by Steven Spielberg. Although Gottlieb would go on to pen two of the three sequels, neither Benchley or Spielberg would return to the film series in any capacity. The first film was regarded as a watershed film in motion picture history; it became the father of the summer blockbuster movies and one of the first "high concept" films. The film is also known for the introduction of John Williams' famous theme music, which was a simple alternating pattern of the E and F notes of a piano. Williams' theme would go on to win an Academy Award. The film would win other Academy Awards, and even be

    Metroland is a 1999 original soundtrack album by Mark Knopfler with music from the film of the same name. The instrumental tracks, specifically composed and recorded for the film Knopfler, effectively help to create the mood and highlight the distinct personalities of the principal characters, with the soundtrack changing the atmosphere as the film flips back and forth between Paris in the early '60s and suburban London in 1977. Parisian flavour is augmented by the music of Françoise Hardy, Django Reinhardt and Quintette du Hot Club de France, with some late-70s classics from The Stranglers, Dire Straits, Hot Chocolate and Elvis Costello that are appropriate for that the period. In the lyrics of "Metroland", the only song he wrote for the move, Knopfler says "I've danced in the rain and I've been Django", so it is entirely appropriate that music by Django Reinhardt should also be on the soundtrack. The song is illustrative of Knopfler's art: it begins with a rising four-note theme on flugelhorn which parallels the hymn Jerusalem, the quintessential anthem of Englishness, but with a vibraphone accompaniment recalling Anglo-French jazz of the '50s. The same theme has been used

Besides this, the Mambo All-Stars are a high energy dance band composed of top studio sidemen from New York City and Los Angeles. With only a couple of exceptions, the tracks were cut specially for the film and as such, add a novel, accurately reflecting the Cuban music sound of the 1950s. The 2000 Elektra updated edition adds a remix of Tito Puente's "Ran Kan Kan" by Olga Tañón and a rendition of "Beautiful Maria of My Soul" featuring Antonio Banderas and legendary crooner Compay Segundo of Buena Vista Social Club fame.

In it, two songs can be heard that were not included on the album: "Seabirds" and "Hollywood". More contains some acoustic folk ballads, a genre that appeared sparsely on later works. It also contains some of the band's "heaviest" recordings, such as "The Nile Song" and "Ibiza Bar", as well as several instrumental tracks, featuring their experimental and avant-garde approach. This is Pink Floyd's first full album without founding member Syd Barrett, who was ousted from the group in early 1968 during the recording of their previous album, A Saucerful of Secrets. It is one of the two Pink Floyd albums to feature David Gilmour as the sole lead vocalist, the other being 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and it is also the first album to be produced by Pink Floyd without assistance from Norman Smith.

    The Cheetah Girls

    The Cheetah Girls

    The Cheetah Girls is the original motion picture soundtrack to the 2003 Disney Channel Original Movie, The Cheetah Girls. It was released on August 12, 2003 on compact disc and audio cassette by Walt Disney Records and it was recorded by The Cheetah Girls, Sonic Chaos, Char, Hope 7, and Christi Mac. It was later released as a special edition album with a few karaoke instrumentals and remixes of songs that are on the original version. Common Sense Media's review of the album complimented The Cheetah Girls' singing, but called the production "prefabricated" and generally disapproved of the musical presentation. The album went to #33 on the Billboard 200 in the US and was certified Double Platinum, selling more than 2 million copies in the US alone. It is one of the biggest selling albums from Walt Disney Records ever, along with the High School Musical soundtrack.

    Blue Hawaii

    Blue Hawaii

    • Film: Blue Hawaii
    Blue Hawaii is the fourteenth album by Elvis Presley, released on RCA Victor Records in mono and stereo, LPM/LSP 2426, in October 1961 - the exact date of October 1 is disputed. It is a soundtrack for Presley's film of the same name. Recording sessions took place at Radio Recorders in Hollywood on March 21, 22, and 23, 1961. It spent 20 weeks at the #1 slot and 39 weeks in the Top 10 on the US Top Pop Albums chart. It was certified Gold on 12/21/1961, Platinum and 2x Platinum on 3/27/1992 and 3x Platinum on 7/30/2002 by the RIAA. On the US Top Pop Albums chart Blue Hawaii is the #2 most successful album of the 1960s, second only to West Side Story. RCA and the Colonel had initially planned a schedule of one soundtrack and one popular music release per year for Presley, in addition to the requisite four singles . To coincide with the location of the film, touches of Hawaiian music were included, from instrumentation to the traditional song "Aloha ʻOe." The title song was taken from a similar film Waikiki Wedding starring Bing Crosby in 1937, and "Hawaiian Wedding Song" dates from a 1926 operetta. The songs "Can't Help Falling In Love" and "Rock-A-Hula Baby" were pulled off the album

    The Wall

    The Wall

    • Film: Pink Floyd The Wall
    The Wall is the eleventh studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd. Released as a double album on 30 November 1979, it was subsequently performed live with elaborate theatrical effects, and adapted into a feature film, Pink Floyd—The Wall. As with the band's previous three LPs, The Wall is a concept album and deals largely with themes of abandonment and personal isolation. It was first conceived during their 1977 In the Flesh Tour, when bassist and lyricist Roger Waters's frustration with the spectators' perceived boorishness became so acute that he imagined building a wall between the performers and audience. The album is a rock opera that centres on Pink, a character Waters modelled after himself, with some aspects based on the band's original leader, Syd Barrett. Pink's life experiences begin with the loss of his father during the Second World War, and continue with ridicule and abuse from his schoolteachers, an overprotective mother and finally, the breakdown of his marriage. All contribute to his eventual self-imposed isolation from society, represented by a metaphorical wall. The Wall features a notably harsher and more theatrical style than Pink Floyd's

    V for Vendetta: Music From The Motion Picture is the soundtrack from the 2006 film V for Vendetta, released by Astralwerks Records on March 21, 2006. The soundtrack features artists such as Julie London, Cat Power and Antony and the Johnsons, but the majority of the work is by composer Dario Marianelli. The track "Remember, Remember" uses the "national anthem" part of the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, and "Knives And Bullets (And Cannons Too)" incorporates the piece in its final two minutes. The second track in the ending credits is "BKAB" by independent producer Ethan Stoller. It features excerpts of speeches by Malcolm X and Gloria Steinem. It also samples two Bollywood songs one of which is "Chura ke dil meraaa .. goriya chali", composed by Anu Malik, a popular and successful Bollywood music director. Several songs used in the film were omitted from the soundtrack. These included the first track to be played in the background of the movie's ending credits, "Street Fighting Man" by The Rolling Stones. Beethoven's 5th Symphony, and "Long Black Train" by Richard Hawley, "Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolph and James Rich are also omitted. All songs written and composed by Dario

    A Hard Day’s Night

    A Hard Day’s Night

    A Hard Day's Night is the third studio album by The Beatles, released on 10 July 1964, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film A Hard Day's Night. The American version of the album was released two weeks earlier, on 26 June 1964 by United Artists Records, with a different track listing. This is the first Beatles album to be recorded entirely on four-track tape, allowing for good stereo mixes. While showcasing the development of the band's songwriting talents, the album sticks to the basic rock and roll instrumentation and song format. The album contains some of their most famous songs, including the title track, with its distinct, instantly recognisable opening chord, and the previously released "Can't Buy Me Love"; both were transatlantic number-one singles for the band. The title of the album was the accidental creation of drummer Ringo Starr. According to Lennon in a 1980 interview with Playboy magazine: "I was going home in the car and Dick Lester [director of the movie] suggested the title, 'Hard Day's Night' from something Ringo had said. I had used it in 'In His Own Write', but it was an off-the-cuff remark by Ringo. You know, one of those

    Garden State

    • Film: Garden State
    Garden State is the soundtrack album to the film Garden State. Compilation producer Zach Braff was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for a Motion Picture for his work on the album. The music that accompanied the film was hand-picked by Zach Braff. Commenting on the selections, Braff said that "Essentially, I made a mix CD with all of the music that I felt was scoring my life at the time I was writing the screenplay." The film’s budget limitations meant that obtaining all the songs Braff wanted for the film proved difficult, but Braff felt that the soundtrack was so integral to the script, he sent a copy of it with every request he sent out. The music in the film features a number of indie-rock artists, notably The Shins. In an early scene, Sam passes Andrew a headset which is playing the song "New Slang" by The Shins as she says "You gotta hear this one song — it’ll change your life; I swear." A second Shins song, "Caring Is Creepy", is also featured on the soundtrack. The presence of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York" on the soundtrack has been cited by some as evidence of another connection to The Graduate. Commenting on the soundtrack’s

    Thief (1981) is a soundtrack album by the German band Tangerine Dream for the film Thief, directed by Michael Mann. It reached No. 43 on the UK Albums Chart in a 3-week run. "Beach Theme" and "Beach Scene" are two different mixes of the same piece. The album version of "Dr. Destructo" is quite different from the film version. An extended version of "Dr. Destructo" was available only on a promo single. "Igneous" is a remix of "Thru Metamorphic Rocks" from the 1979 album Force Majeure. Neither "Beach Theme" nor "Trap Feeling" appear in the film. After Tangerine Dream completed the soundtrack, Mann needed another sequence. As Tangerine Dream was on tour, Craig Safan composed and performed "Confrontation". The original 1981 Elektra LP released in the U.S. featured "Confrontation", but subsequent releases featured "Beach Scene" instead. During the 1980s, Toronto television station CITY-TV uses "Scrap Yard" as their background music when inserting technical difficulties slide cards.

    "A Heart Is a House for Love" (title often confused with "A Heart Is A House Of Love") is a 1991 hit soul and R&B song composed by Tristin and Davitt Sigerson, and Bob Thiele and recorded by The Dells originally featured in the movie and on the soundtrack of The Five Heartbeats film (which coincidentally is loosely based on the real lives of numerous classic male Soul groups such as The Dells, The Temptations, and Jackie Wilson). The song originally only climbed to number 94 on the R&B/Hip Hop section of the Billboard American charts; the song then peaked at number thirteen, after the release of the movie. It was The Dells' most successful hit of the 1990s. It was also their last hit single to reach the top 20 of any Billboard Chart. The song was originally featured in the 1991 feature film The Five Heartbeats, which follows the lives of the fictional singing group of the same name. In the scene the song is featured in, the group is about to perform when the announcer tells them backstage that a new house rules demands they use a piano player hired by the owners of the building. The members of the group are offended by the gesture, as they had not practiced with the piano player,

    • Film: Stop Making Sense
    Stop Making Sense is a live 1984 album by Talking Heads, the soundtrack to the film of the same name. The original release of the album features only nine of the songs from the movie, many of them heavily edited. The album spent more than two years (118 weeks) on the Billboard 200 chart. In 1999, a 16-track re-release coincided with the concert's 15th anniversary. Byrne's intention was not to make a traditional soundtrack album, but to have it be a separate experience. Limited pressings of the original LP version featured a full color picture book wrapped around the album jacket. Regular versions had many of the pictures and captions on the album's inner sleeve. In 1999 - to correspond with the theatrical re-release of the movie - the album was extended and remastered, restoring all of the songs from the movie with only very minor edits. The newly included tracks feature Frantz's original drumming from the concert recordings. In 2003, the album was ranked number 345 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In 2012 Slant Magazine listed the album at #61 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980's". All songs written by David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Jerry

First released on April 13, 2004, it reached #58 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Billboard soundtracks chart in the US. It also reached the ARIA Top 50 album charts in Australia. It was orchestrated by Tarantino's fellow filmmaker and personal friend Robert Rodriguez, as well as RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. Robert Rodriguez was hired by Tarantino to score the film. Rodriguez did it as a favour for his friend, Tarantino, asking to be paid one dollar for his work. Tarantino repaid this favour by directing a scene of Rodriguez's Sin City for the same fee. RZA said of the soundtrack: "With Kill Bill I did score and songs, meaning that we put a lot of songs in [the movie] from old collections of records and I composed music for some scenes, natural music. When we did Kill Bill 2, you know, we brought Robert Rodriguez in. Check this out, he took my music and he kept the foundation there, though.

The single and remix never appeared, and the film itself was only released in Spanish cinemas. Other tracks recorded for the film (but left off the soundtrack) include "Secret Love", a duet between Cracknell and Parker Posey, "Sadie's Anniversary" and "Half Timbered". The last two were later released on the Places to Visit EP.

    The soundtrack of the 1999 Jim Jarmusch film Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai features an original score by RZA and also features hip-hop songs by such artists as Wu-Tang Clan, Killah Priest, and Public Enemy. Two soundtrack albums were released, one internationally and another in Japan, each with different song mixes, some of which do not appear in the film. There are many songs, however, that can be heard in the film that appear on neither soundtrack album. It is the RZA's first fully scored film work, something he would go on to do from here. The song soundtrack features music from the film as well as quotations from Hagakure: the Book of the Samurai by Tsunetomo Yamamoto (translated into English by William Scott Wilson) as read by Forrest Whitaker in the voice of the title character. However, the focus of this album is on the songs, not the instrumental score of the movie. The score release, only available in Japan, focuses on the original instrumental score of the movie, featuring tracks that are not on the US release. It also includes cuts by Wu-Tang Clan and RZA that are not in the movie. A number of songs appear in the film but are on neither soundtrack album release. They

The project collected reviews such as: "(The New Pollutants') Metropolis was a once in a lifetime experience...

The LP was released in the United Kingdom on 2 June 1972 on Harvest/EMI and then in the United States on 15 June 1972 on Harvest/Capitol.

The cover of Obscured by Clouds is an out-of-focus film still of a man in a tree. At this point in their career, the band were not new to scoring movies. They had already scored the films The Committee in 1968 and More and some of Zabriskie Point in 1969. Consequently, Barbet Schroeder contacted the band in order to make another soundtrack, which they had agreed to do after More had become a success. The band had already started working on The Dark Side of the Moon at this point, having done some basic recording and

    • Film: S.W.A.T.
    S.W.A.T. is the soundtrack score for the 2003 action movie S.W.A.T., based on the 1970s TV series of the same name, composed by Elliot Goldenthal. It is generally viewed as being another surprise, being that Goldenthal usually gravitates towards more "intellectual" and "arthouse" type movies and although he has done a few "commercial" action movie type scores in the past the decision to score S.W.A.T. was nevertheless interesting; and Goldenthal has developed a reputation for choosing unlikely projects, if anything, for the sheer fun of it. in choosing to compose the score for S.W.A.T. he, some have said, had played the "Media Ventures" (now known as Remote Control Productions) composers, led by electronic/rock action score composer Hans Zimmer, at their own game, and won, creating an original, intense, yet complex and diverse score. The point being that "Media Ventures" scores, in the industry and with score fans, have a reputation for churning out generic scores for, mostly, action thriller movies. Goldenthal, with his typically avante-garde approach, gave the score to S.W.A.T. a weight that it would never have had. It has been celebrated as another unique and exciting addition

    • Film: Toomorrow
    Toomorrow (1970) is the soundtrack from the 1970 film Toomorrow, featuring the band Toomorrow with Australian singer Olivia Newton-John (her first major release album). The film was a sci-fi musical mix directed by Val Guest and was Newton-John's second movie. It was Don Kirshner's less successful follow up to his fictitious musical group creation, The Monkees. Band members of the band Toomorrow were Olivia Newton-John (vocals), Karl Chambers (drums), Ben Thomas (guitar, vocals) and Vic Cooper (organ, piano, saxophone, guitar, recorder). According to Newton-John's biographer Tim Ewbank, Bruce Welch tried to rescue this album by bringing in new but well established British songwriters to reconstruct a mk2 version of this album but due to the knock on affect this would have had on the film version requiring substantial and costly refilming this idea was shelved. One 7" single with picture sleeve was taken from this album on RCA records. Later on a more commercial non-album follow up single by Toomorrow was recorded by this band on Decca records produced by Bruce Welch.
