Default Best Songs from Soundtracks

To get us started:

The 30 Best Songs from Movie Soundtracks

No covers, no scores, no musical numbers -- all originals.

We’ve refused to include any covers, scores, or musical numbers, while also focusing solely on tracks exclusive to the soundtrack. In this way, we aren’t just listing any random classic song used in any number of movies. No, these are original tracks specifically tailored for the film.

https://consequenceofsound.net/2017/...cks/full-post/

If this scope is too limited, name any great song from a soundtrack.

I feel like the Bond movies could have their own list entirely.

That is a really difficult list to make because the days of soundtracks filled with b-side releases from artists (or custom written songs) seem to be a thing of the past.

Nowadays releases seem to be chosen for the purpose of providing a bump in digital sales of a an existing album for the artist.

Graffiti Bridge was terrible, but Can't Stop This Felling I Got, should have been a huge hit for Prince.

Probably because it is kind of a cover song? - based on Stevie Wonder's Pastime Paradise.

Loved this tidbit from Aimee Mann's 'Save Me':

"In 1999, Mann lost out on the Academy Award to Phil Collins (Tarzan), so now she dedicates the song to him before she plays it."

Yeah guess that one is right one the line.

The chorus and instrumentation is a cover but the rest of it is mostly original.

Personally feel like it's original enough.

Hard for me to pick too many individual songs but from my youth I can recall The Crow, Batman Forever, Spawn, Lost Highway, End of Days and Natural Born Killers all being very popular soundtracks.

The only (original) tracks that really stand out for me that I still listen to today are The Perfect Drug by nine inch nails from Lost Highway and So Long by Everlast from End of Days.

An original that perfectly captured that period in time.

Was the Hackers soundtrack original? Not my style of music in general but was lots of fun for early morning ski trips
