Best Movie Soundtracks

As the great Hans Christian Andersen once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” Accordingly, the enduring pathos of a film is created, enhanced or hindered by the music. Imagine, if you will, the braggadocious yet catchy “Bodak Yellow” by Cardi B playing instead of the gritty, masculine “Goin’ Out West” by Tom Waits when Brad Pitt struts into Mo’s Tavern in the 1999 cult classic, Fight Club. The difference in music is not negligible — it defines your experience. If you can recall films by playlists and soundtracks rather than actors and characters, then this gallery is for you! We have compiled the best movie soundtracks of all time for your pure enjoyment. Did we miss any of your favorite movie soundtracks? Let us know in the comments below! ~Ari Derin

    So many more great soundtracks!
    Absolute fave: A Knight’s Tale – still listen to it driving all these years later! Rock ‘n roll!
