Top three: movie soundtracks.

In no particular order, and my personal opinion.

  • Donnie Darko original soundtrack and score.

The scores alone in this movie soundtrack are something different, but Joy Division and Tears For Fears really make it memorable. All of the music fits so well with this quirky movie, and much like the film, it's one I could listen to over and over again. I could be biased since it is one of my favourite films, but I just don't think anyone could dislike the 80's and 90's music, even now. Michael Andrew's scores from the second disc of the soundtrack were also something hard to dislike, Gretchen Ross and Middlesex Times being my favourites, these short snippets of original scores were, and still are fantastic!


  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack.

Obviously this ones a bit different, since it is a musical, but the songs are to die for. No matter what mood you're in, there's a song that fits it on this album, and it's my go to for long bus journeys, because it just doesn't allow you to get bored. The film itself was something spectacular, but the music, lyrics and singing to these songs are something else; hearing Tim Curry sing a ballad about being a 'Sweet Transvestite' doesn't get old, and neither does Susan Sarandon's surprisingly amazing singing voice in 'Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me'.


  • The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.

This album right here is my ultimate feel good album, and by far the best soundtrack to ever come from a Marvel film (Deadpool is a very close second!). I could sing along to every word to every song on this soundtrack, because of them all being so well known, feel good hits from the past. 'Come and get your love' and 'Hooked on a Feeling' are unforgettable, and add so much more of an amazing viewing experience to this film. 'Moonage Daydream' by the late David Bowie has become one of my all time favourite songs since watching this film for the first time, and it just makes the soundtrack all the more fantastic in my opinion.


Honourable mentions.

  • Deadpool.
  • The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
  • The Lost Boys.
  • The Great Gatsby.
  • The Blues Brothers.
