    Midnight Cowboy
    What's New Pussycat?
    Looking(or wishing) to get...
    Omen II
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    Fahrenheit 451
    Midnight Cowboy has an amazing soundtrack thanks mostly to John Barry. What's New Pussycat is a great early Bacharach endeavor. I mostly bought it for Warwick's "Here I Am" which is fantastic but I've grown to love most if not all of it. I guess I'm really into my 60's soundtrack phase.

    another vote for : Naked Lunch (very acid jazz)

    Clockwork Orange

    I also like the 2 cds of Twin Peaks music.

    I used to own One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but sold it...

    Last I bought was the one created to coincide with the DVD of "The Day The Earth Stood Still" Terrif!

    I hate "soundtrack cds" that are not accurate or representative of the music heard in a film, as when tracks are missing, or not in the order of appearance in the films.

    Eg, The Crying Game, Blue Velvet, Wild Palms, etc.

    What a coincidence- I never buy soundtrack music, but I got an order from Columia House yesterday which included the soundtrack to Amadeus.

    I also have Blues Brothers, Superfly and 2 South Park CDs.

    I am a big fan of score soundtrack music. It is my classical music. I have around 100 soundtrack CDs. Seabiscuit is my latest acquisition.

    Speaking of classical music, I don't think I would have gained such a deep love and appreciation for classical music had it not been for my initial exposure to movie soundtracks, in particular Star Wars, which I first got back in 1978.

    Or at least it would have taken much longer for me to finally arrive at listening to classical music had I not first listened to some wonderful film scores. Also, most of the time now I'm able to identify classical music influences on certain film scores and composers.

    Not at all, John. Disney film's have produced some wonderful scores - everything from John Barry's Black Hole in the 80's to Michael Giacchino's The Incredibles and Thomas Newman's superb Finding Nemo and WALL*E Scores have a place on my shelf!

    I'm really digging the Inception sound track. But am I wrong or is it missing what's considered the 'Main Theme'? The closest seems to be the last 30 seconds on 'Waiting for a train' but that's not what most people are going to recognize, the music from the trailer.

    John - did the soundtrack to Step Up 3D have any cues from Bear McCreary's score on it?
