So I finally reach the Top 5. To be honest, I'm not the kind of person that believes that much in lists. From time to time I'm changing my taste, therefore also my favourite songs and soundtracks. What I can assure is that this 5 albums/compilations have truly touched my life.
Are you ready?
What a deep, mysterious, sad piece of music! I took some time to get into Lynch's films (not the classics like Elephant Man or Blue Velvet, but the encrypted ones like Mulholland Dr.).
However, that's not the case of their soundtracks. Angelo Badalamenti, an usual partner of Lynch, creates a dreamlike sound, making me believe in things I cannot explain.
I've told every little star
Diane and Camilla
Wendy Carlos got an interesting personal story herself, and did a remarkable work in this movie. Using the synthesizer, she gave the sci-fi film all the atmosphere it needed.
Mixing it with creative options of classical masterpieces, Carlos made it impossible to overlook The Clockwork Orange Soundtrack as one of the best music selections for me.
Funeral of Queen Mary
The thieving magpie
Ninth symphony, second movement
Pomp and circunstance march no.1
Overture to the sun
Singin' in the rain
I have already praised Morricone's magical music here. So why this one in the 3rd place? Besides the tremendous main theme, there are also two magnificent songs in the album: The man with harmonica and Chayenne.
Once upon a time in the west
The man with harmonica
The grand massacre
A dimly lit room
Main theme live in Venice
I admire so much Tiersen's soulful music. I dare to say this is his masterpiece. Creative, solar but also blue, rich, breathtaking.
Les jours tristes
La valse d'Amélie
Comptine d'un autre été: l'après-midi
La valse d'Amélie - orchestral version
OK, the #1 is a tricky one. Two soundtracks sharing the first place. But, as I never considered Kill Bill as two films, I think is fair enough to put them together.
Tarantino presents a pleasant and unique mixture in both albums, that includes two of the film score masters: Bernard Herrmann and Ennio Morricone.
Also, spanish and mexican music, japanese singers, Johnny Cash, dramatic themes and amazing beats. How this could not appear as my favourite soundtrack of all time?
Bang bang (my baby shot me down)
The grand duel (parte prima)
Battle without honor or humanity
Don't let me be misunderstood
The flower of carnage
The lonely shepherd
A silhouette of doom
That's it folks. I hope you enjoyed my countdown as I did. Thank you all for the comments.
See you around!
