Top Soundtracks that Rock My World

submitted by Deena

We've all done it--bought a soundtrack because of "that one song" that was unavailable anywhere else, and then been thoroughly disappointed with the rest of the album. I see many of those soundtracks in the dollar bin at the local record Exchange. Here are 7 soundtracks (in no particular order) that I would never sell back:

Dazed and Confused, 1993
Forget the Time Life Collection of Classic Rock, get this instead

Favorite songs--"Cherry Bomb," The Runaways; "Low Rider," War

Judgment Night, 1993
Rap-rock did exist before Limp Bizkit, and it was good

Favorite songs--"Just Another Victim," Helmet/House of Pain; "Judgement Night," Biohazard/Onyx

Singles, 1992
Leave it to Cameron Crowe to give us the Seattle sound at its best

Favorite songs--"State of Love and Trust," Pearl Jam; "Dyslexic Heart," Paul Westerberg

Reality Bites, 1994
The soundtrack completely outshined the movie

Favorite songs--"Stay (I Missed You)," Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories; "Tempted (94)," Squeeze

Moulin Rouge, 2001
Classic pop songs with a beautiful postmodern twist

Favorite songs--"Lady Marmalade," Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink; "El Tango De Roxanne," Ewan McGregor, Jose Feliciano, and Jacek Koman

Trainspotting, 1996
Even the soundtrack sequel was as good as the first

Favorite songs--"Atomic," Sleeper; "Temptation," New Order

Studio 54, 1998
An amazing compilation of disco tunes

Favorite songs--
"Knock on Wood," Mary Griffin; "Wishing on a Star," Rose Royce

That's not too hard to do, since that movie sucks. And it's not like I just don't like it, it actually makes me ANGRY.

My favorite '90s soundtrack, at least off the top of my head, was William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Great songs from Garbage, Radiohead, Everclear and Des'ree.

Thankfully I don't remember HOW BAD Reality Bites sucked, I just remember that it sucked! Thanks for confirming my suspicions, Beckeye!
