Not your ‘favourite’ or ‘Best’ soundtrack… but rather soundtracks that surprised from average films or simply where you were distracted by some the tunes.

Will start off with ‘This is 40’ - Sound track includes:

Norah Jones
Graham Parker
Paul Simon
Loudon Wainwright III
Ryan Adams
Jon Brion
FionaApple
Wilco
The Avett Brothers

Last of the Mohicans - average film but stunning finale that is made by the music.

I think that the soundtrack for _ This Is England _ falls into this category because as well as featuring old favourites such as:

54-46 Was My Number, Toots and The Martels
Do the Dogg, The Specials
Come On Eileen, Dexy’s Midnight Runners
Tainted Love, Soft Cell

… it also introduced me to the beautifully haunting music of Ludovico Einaudi.

For me, the only thing that slightly spoils the album is the snippets of dialogue.

Ry Cooder’s soundtrack to Wim Wenders’ Paris Texas blew me away.

Still one of my faves.

Is a classic. But was thinking of more average films that just had surprises in the soundtrack

Thanks! I like Ryan Adams well enough, but I can never quite understand the mega hype.

Not a film soundtrack as such but certainly a music video that caught me by surprise the first time watched it

Beautiful song, btw.

Anything on PornHub. Normally because I’ve forgotten to turn the volume on my phone down.
