The Love Punch   (Emma Thompson, Pierce Brosnan)

 

I watched this movie the other night on one of the streaming channels, and the soundtrack was filled with mostly 70's-80's rock music. Too bad, but the soundtrack album only had the original music written for the movie and none of the rock tunes. 🙁

Again, not a complete soundtrack, but, the music that plays during the chase scene in The Fifth Element after Leeloo crashes through the roof of his cab and Corbin Dallas is running from the cops.

Not sure about a whole movie soundtrack, but sure do like Cissy Strut from the movie RED and almost any Marvin Gaye tune I've ever heard in any movie.

There is one other country soundtrack on my list - 

 

Red Headed Stranger  -  Willie Nelson


The movie wasn’t that great, but the soundtrack was awesome! 😎

Philadelphia

O Brother Where Art Thou

 

Possibly the only one on my list that features country / bluegrass music. I enjoyed the movie and the soundtrack. It is only one of three movie soundtracks to win a Grammy for best album. (The other two were Saturday Night Fever and The Bodyguard).

This is a great sound track. I especially like the 2 or 3 songs that Alison Kraus sings on. She has such a beautiful voice.
