What movie soundtrack has no right to slap as hard as it does?

What movie soundtrack has no right to slap as hard as it does?

JOJO_IN_FLAMES

A Goofy Movie.


Casult

I'm legit mad it's hard to find "eye to eye" and "stand out" that sound as good as they do in the movie.


whotookmyboot

If you have Apple Music, they have the songs from that goofy movie. It’s titled “ I 2 I “ not spelled out eye to eye.


laurynelizabeth

Honestly, the Holes soundtrack. I got the CD as a kid and that's all I listened to for a long time.


kiyakiishiyama

i’m tired of this, grandpa!


anakinkskywalker

WELL THAT'S TOO DAMN BAD!


throwaway69420322

That movie slapped harder than it had any right to. Legit the kid's version of The Shawshank Redemption.

YOOOOOOU got to go dig them holes


jennz

Dig it uh-uh-ohh, dig it.


tiggs81682

The Crow The original with Brandon Lee. Every song on the album is solid.


Kaii_Low

Burn by the Cure may be one of my all time favourite songs! So powerful, even without the tragic circumstances of the movie.


AdverseDefect

I listened to Burn this morning, one of my favourite Cure songs.


bjstevens1951

I was going to jump in and correct you until I realized I had my soundtracks mixed up. I saw "Burn" and immediately heard the song of the same title from the Natural Born Killers soundtrack by NIN. Dead Souls is the NIN track from The Crow. I have both CDs floating around here somewhere. Both are stellar soundtracks!

10 Things I Hate About You!


mouthwash_juicebox

The band that plays on the roof at the end, Letters to Cleo, also did all of the music for Josie and the Pussycats. I reeeeally recommend that soundtrack if you like 10 Things I Hate About You.


puddlejumpers

The lyrics to the Josie songs are actually really fucking well done. "It took 6 whole hours, and 5 long days, 4 all your lies to come undone. And those 3 small words were way 2 late, cuz you can't see that I'm the 1" That little countdown worked into the lyrics is brilliant.

Office Space


fuffy_bya

Damn it feels good..


t-poke

In 2015, I left the company I had worked for as a software developer for 8 long years, a job that was becoming more and more like Office Space. I swear to god, my last day, when I left the office and got in my car, that song is playing on whatever Sirius channel I had on. I turned that shit up, open the windows and very slowly drove out of the parking garage. The only way it could've been more perfect was if I had stolen a printer and $300,000.


dirtewokntheboys

A knights tale


SpriteKid

the dance scene with golden years is one of my favorite scenes ever


JadeSpade23

**HACKERS** Prodigy, Orbital, Leftfield, Massive Attack, etc. *Love* the music in this 90's classic lol Edit: I'm so glad so many people agree with me on this! Apparently I'm wrong though, because this movie *does* deserve a soundtrack that slaps this hard. Also, I ***adore*** the wardrobe of the cast. This is my favorite "version" of Angelina Jolie, and I wish I could be as fucking cool/hot as her in this role!! Edit²: Was not expecting this response; feels like I started my own (Hackers) army!! Thank you for the awards. Love that so many people love this music and movie.


ohlawdyhecoming

I'm glad somebody got to this before I did. Just did a re-watch last week. When Halcyon & On & On comes in over the city...so good.


BooFriend

Romeo+Juliet (1996)


AtlantisTempest

Garbage and Radiohead had such bangers from it


ohthatdusty

Local God might be the best Everclear song, and Kissing You was the first song I ever taught myself to play on a piano.


ArtAndBills

YES. Volume 2 was perfection.


dontbleevit

Fantastic Mr. Fox


mad_fishmonger

MORTAL KOMBAAAAAAT (95)


Isphet71

This is the answer. The movie soundtrack that made an entire genre mainstream.


Oddgit

Fear Factory, KMFDM, Orbital, Type O Negative, GZR, it was a gateway to new music I’d only heard about. And then there are the original tracks from the film damn those are good. I listened the shit out of the soundtrack when I was a teenager.


unearnedconfidence-

The Road to El-Dorado


Ekoldr

Elton John, Tim Rice and Hans Zimmer you bet your ass.


leaffeon

I'm so mad Spotify doesn't have this soundtrack. The opening song is freaking amazing - "ONE THOUSAND YEARS. AGO!"


SifuHotmanz

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. It was composed by Hans Zimmer and the songs were sung by Brian Adams. Sound the Bugle, Can’t Take Me and Get off My Back all SLAP. Plus it’s narrated by Matt Damon. It’s a shame it didn’t get any big awards for the sound track. I play it when I’m feeling nostalgic.


Disastrous_Brain_69

> Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron Loved this movie as a kid. Might have to rewatch it again to feel what I felt back then.


lozzsome

I get excited anytime I hear someone mention this underrated masterpiece. Loved the movie and the music was beyond incredible.


CelestialWolfMoon

One of my favorite soundtracks from an animated children’s film. Not a single filler song on it either.


MainBattleGoat

Dude yes, my sister loved this movie as a kid (still does). Watched it at least 3 times a week. She's upset at the new series though, the first was about fighting western expansion, very much on the side of the natives, and Spirit refusing to be tamed. Now it's some little white girl riding him around.


BluPaladin

I still can't believe that is what they did as a follow up... Had to look it up myself when my brother told about it.


FloppyFishcake

I saw the trailer for the new movie(?) just the other day with my brother and the moment I saw what they'd done to my boy I went on a massive rant. Shameful. The original movie was a masterpiece and should have been left alone.


Oni-yome

Trainspotting - still my favourite soundtrack after all these years


BartVanHouten

Born slippy!


Andreklooster

Lager lager lager lager ... Shouting lager


romajstorovic

both pirates of the caribbean and how to train your dragon have some of the best soundtracks i’ve ever heard


Pocket-Sandwich

Literally the first two I thought of. Pirates revived a genre that hadn't seen a major blockbuster in decades and simultaneously made that soundtrack THE sound of everything pirate related since. I've seen HTTYD so many times, and that musical climax during the first flight still gives me chills. Absolutely robbed of the Oscar


MrEthan997

>made that soundtrack THE sound of everything pirate related since. Yeah, pirate music is a well defined mini genre. But when thinking about it, almost all the music is from one of the movies


VodkaMargarine

Megamind


Spooky_boi_Kyle_8

Incredibly handsome criminal genius and master of all villainy.


geckospots

Pre-sen-TATION.


ChubbyNinja530

Queen of the damned. Fuck yeah


RyFromTheChi

Soundtracks from era that were so nu-metal heavy were the best.


Chairmanmeowrightnow

So what I love is that the lead singer for Korn could do the vocals for the movie because he was playing the voice of the character Lestat, but due to contract obligations he couldn’t sing on the album, so he coached the various singers for each song to sound like him, which I think gives the album a neat vibe, almost like a tribute album to him with their own spin on each song. Great album.


Rae-O-Sunshinee

Huntchback of Notre Dame


thoughtlow

[Hellfire](https://youtu.be/U3NoDEu7kpg) slaps so hard


teenylilthing

It's such a great song. Creepy as hell, but great. 🔥 Big fan of God Help the Outcasts too.


SafeOrange5

Fuck yeah. The bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, belllllsssss oooooffff Nnnnotttrrrrraaaa dddaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmme.


CrochetNerd_

The Matrix. Gave it a re-watch not too long ago. The soundtrack is banging.


BagelDesk

Clubbed to Death is pure gold.


Casult

Peak late 90's gold! Ministry, The Prodigy, Rob Dougan and more!


TheRedEyedSamurai

That ending when Rage Against the Machine kicks in... So good


attaboy000

I disagree. That soundtrack has every right to be as banging as it was/is, to go along with the movie.


ID9ITAL

I'm late, but Jurassic Park (the original). No words needed. You can just feel it. {edit: In my defense, at the time the original movie came out I had never noticed John Williams. To be honest, I'm still in awe that a soundtrack about mutant dinosaurs rampaging around could be so heartfelt and moving. Yes the composer is a genius, but really....a soundtrack to a dinosaur movie!)


0-Cloud

John fuckin Williams


JediASU

No other way to put it. I saw him in concert and he signed my JP CD.


bivalve_attack

O Brother Where Art Thou. Granted the movie itself is fantastic but I'm one of those who owned the soundtrack before seeing the movie and I'm not the only one. > The film's soundtrack became an unlikely blockbuster, even surpassing the success of the film. By early 2001, it had sold five million copies, spawned a documentary film, three follow-up albums ("O Sister" and "O Sister 2"), two concert tours, and won Country Music Awards for Album of the Year and Single of the Year (for "Man of Constant Sorrow"). It also won five Grammys, including Album of the Year, and hit #1 on the Billboard album charts the week of March 15, 2002, 63 weeks after its release and over a year after the release of the film. [Source](https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0190590/trivia/?ref_=tt_trv_trv)


Namika

I always found that really ironic because the entire plot of the movie was how the main characters just casually sang this song for a few bucks and didn't think much of it, only for it to become a massively popular song that eclipsed everything else they were doing. ...and then that exact same thing from the movie *happened to the movie's soundtrack* .


IbexEye

Then there's the uncertainty about the song's origins. Only published in 1913 and Dick Burnett's not even sure he wrote it. Love the history of the song that's been slapping for over a hundred years.


binglebongled

Still the best rendition of I’ll fly away I’ve ever heard


midnittrain2GA

Allison Krause. I became a fan of her's theough listening to this album.


MissCollusion

I absolutely love the movie, too. "We thought you was a toad!"


dla26

I love the fact that Tim Blake Nelson (the guy who played Delmar) was a Classics major at Brown and was the resident expert on set for all things Homer/Odyssey.


wooducare4moremimosa

Also fun fact about Tim Blake Nelson is that while Clooney and Tuturro were dubbed, he actually sang in at least some of his songs. "In the Jailhouse Now" is really him singing, which I think is kinda neat.

Quite possibly one of the most quintessential and great feeling films/sound scores that I've ever seen! :D I love watching this with people who've never seen it before.

Every time I watch it with someone, regardless of whether or not they’ve seen it or if I’ve said it to them before, the words “you know this is based on The Odyssey?” will come out of my mouth.


aKnightWh0SaysNi

I made our wedding band sing “I am a man of constant sorrow” solely because of this movie. Didn’t fit the theme at all, but they knocked it out of the park.

Interstellar


LarryCrabCake

The *tick....tick....tick* in Mountains really hits hard when you find out that Hans Zimmer and Christopher Nolan timed the ticks perfectly to match up with the time dilation on the planet. **Each tick represents an entire twenty-four hours passing on Earth.** They did something similar in "Supermarine" from Dunkirk where they used the ticking of Nolan's pocket watch to raise tension without the audience even knowing *why* they're feeling so tense.


hereforthefeast

For Dunkirk they used something called [Shepard tones.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVWTQcZbLgY) > Named after cognitive scientist Roger Shepard, the sound consists of several tones separated by an octave layered on top of each other. As the lowest bass tone starts to fade in, the higher treble tone fades out. When the bass completely fades in and the treble completely fades out, the sequence loops back again. Because you can always hear at least two tones rising in pitch at the same time, your brain gets tricked into thinking that the sound is constantly ascending in pitch.


ToXiC_Games

Man fuck Hans Zimmer. He has no right dropping so many god-killing soundtracks. Interstellar, Bladerunner 2049, Rango, Chappie, Black Hawk Down.


Tedddy_KGB

I listen to a lot of Hans Zimmer music, especially Interstellar, at work. At my old job, first week in the office, boss asked me what I like to listen to when trying to drill through workpapers. I said Hans Zimmer. He was stunned, and asked me if he was playing his music too loudly, showed me his phone, and that was who he was listening to as well.

How To Train Your Dragon


Azalon76

Where No One Goes from the second movie is just. Perfect.


ZippyPrusa3D

I'm so glad someone put HTTYD. The soundtrack is an absolute masterpiece, every song can be listened to standalone on repeat


peplantski

This should be higher, especially considering the opening track is [this masterpiece](https://youtu.be/VWr0hSKLcXY)


SirLeopoldIII

I love the how to train your dragon music so much, literally listen to it on spotify all the time


pinklovecup

The prince of egypt


ladedafuckit

Literally every single song. There’s not a single song that’s even mediocre on the soundtrack


shiguywhy

Prince of Egypt just in general goes way too hard for no reason. I don't know what it says about me that two of my favorite movies are Bible musicals but if loving Ted Neely Jesus and The Whale Scene is wrong then I don't wanna be right


tennisdrums

>Prince of Egypt just in general goes way too hard for no reason. Just to give some context as to why it went so hard, *Prince of Egypt* was one of Dreamworks very first movie releases (if not the first), so the founders: David Geffin, Jeffrey Katzenberg (fresh from working in Disney during its renaissance) and Steven effing Spielberg called in *all* the favors to make sure they could make something epic to establish the film studio.


BullAlligator

They wanted to make an animated musical better than Disney, something no one had succeeded at previously.


1CEninja

I don't think you need to enjoy biblical stories to enjoy Prince of Egypt. It's a standalone really good movie with excellent animation, music, and story.


GoldenFeatherwing

YOU'RE PLAYING WITH THE BIG BOYS NOW


CaptainNapalm22

If you weren't aware, the Egyptian high priests are played by Steve Martin and Martin Short. That makes makes it even better. Lol

Mr_Underhill09

BY THE MIGHT OF HORUS...


TheD3xus

The music was written by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Hunchback of Notre Dame) and Hanz Zimmer (Inception, Batman - The Dark Knight, Dune)! Stephen worked on the film songs, like The Plagues, Deliver Us, Through Heaven's Eyes, anywhere there was a singer. Hans Zimmer did the score, working on the overall atmosphere for music throughout the film. That means environmental music like the Burning Bush scene, the chariot scene near the beginning, songs without vocalists. They are both incredibly talented musicians in their own way; combining them in this movie was magic just waiting to happen.


DeathNoodle88

While Inception and Dark Knight are very indicative of Zimmer's style, I feel more people would recognize the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks.


TourmalineDreams

That entire movie is a masterpiece for no reason, and I adore it. I still remember the first time I watched it and heard Deliver Us, and the chills it gave me as a kid.


rainsoaked88

I was an emotionless kid but the first time I got tears in my eyes from a movie was when the mother sends Moses down the river and sings to him.


Send_me_snoot_pics

Hearing that song when I was older is how I found Ofra Haza


amburrito3

Prince of Egypt was on Netflix I believe (some streaming platform) right after I had a baby and I thought it’d be a good movie for my older boys to watch. I forgot about that scene and it fucking destroyed me. Just hits different when you have kids man.


ThievingRock

Everyone's here falling over themselves over Mariah's and Whitney's When You Believe, but Through Heaven's Eyes is the best song on that soundtrack by far.


caligaris_cabinet

Both are good but The Plagues is the highlight of the film.


RavioliGale

"Then let my heart be hardened, never mind how high the cost may grow, still this will be so, I will not let your people go!"


thatredditrando

I swear all God had to do to get Pharaoh to release the Hebrews is make him hear… “I send a pestilence and plague Into your house, into your bed Into your streams, into your streets Into your drink, into your bread Upon your cattle, on your sheep Upon your oxen in your field Into your dreams, into your sleep Until you break, until you yield I send the swarm, I send the horde, thus saith the Lord” …in the back of his head throughout the day, slowly increasing in volume. That shit is haunting.


Sun_on_my_shoulders

I love through heaven’s eyes. The guys who sings it did a live performance and it warmed my heart.


PikaBooSquirrel

"The Plagues", especially with the imagery, just goes harder than the belt I was beat with as a child


VoidDrinker

BoDirk777

Forrest Gump


trabbaro

The studio turned them down for all the classic songs they wanted in Forrest Gump. Said it was way too expensive to get the rights to all of them. So they went ahead and made a cut of the film with those songs anyway. They showed it to the studio in that form, and the studio bought them all those songs.


Gamblor14

Wise choice. The movie would have still been pretty good without the music, but it would have felt incomplete. The music really immerses you into the movie. It sets the tone and helps define the changing eras within the movie.


MyVoiceIsElevating

So iconic. Some of those tracks were so well paired with the visual sequence that it’s neigh impossible to not picture Forest when hearing them.


Gamblor14

I can’t hear the songs ‘Fortunate Son’, ‘Running on Empty’, ‘For What It’s Worth,’ and ‘Against the Wind,’ without thinking about the movie.


measureinlove

It’s the Freebird balcony scene that always gets me.


KrispyBacon006

Pirates of the Caribbean. Every single track.

Tarzan. YOULL BE IN MY HEARTTTTTT


snartblartmcgee

I had to scroll so far just to find this one, I knew I couldnt be the only one saying this masterpiece! it was honestly the first movie that came to mind!


RevanMarston

I refused to stop scrolling the comments until I found Tarzan. Phil Collins got it so right.


APforpresident

Same! This is why I came to this topic—to make sure the Tarzan soundtrack got its due!


ucffan93

There is no excuse for why I had to scroll SO FAR to see this.


redditaccount001

Phil Collins went so hard he also sung the French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions of the soundtrack. [Here’s a link to a mashup of all the different languages he did](https://youtu.be/olz6d_EUVI8).

heyitsbilal

the pacific rim(the first one) theme


TheIncredibleHork

Played it for a friend of mine, he said you could really imagine yourself moving a giant robot through the oceans to that music. And not just the main theme, the whole soundtrack. Ramin Djawadi did a good job with it. I really like "Physical Compatibility," from the training scene between Raleigh and Mako.


WatchingInSilence

I knew it was gonna bring the heat when I saw the composer was Ramin Djawadi. His other works included the first Iron Man film and Game of Thrones.

joecarter93

uncommonpanda

Right after you hear the sample of Jeff Bridges say, *THE GRID* You're just locked in for whatever you are working on. Man what an album.


onewinghoneybee

I love Tron: Legacy and it's soundtrack so much! I hope we get Tron 3 someday. Sad Daft Punk isn't a thing anymore, so they definitely won't be doing the soundtrack.


BagelDesk

Total banger. The Daft Punk album that just so happens to come with a movie.

Spider-Man: into the spider verse


djseifer

Miles sneaking off to his uncle's place set to Biggie's *Hypnotize* is one of my favorite scenes in the movie.

ogier_79

The Leap of Faith scene!!!! Cinematic perfection. That sequence is amazing.


Goatfellon

Now I have to watch this again on my days off. Curse youuu


FlyingSpaceCow

It's on my gym playlist and when it reaches the part of the song where the leap of faith happens, I can go into a full sprint for a full minute (even when I think I'm dead tired) . It's hard to describe how and why it pumps me up so much.

I mean, you could say this film has every right to slap as hard as it does. Composed by Beck? The Black Lips? AND Metric? Plus Edgar Wright's crazy influence in the industry at the time? Textbook recipe for "music that slaps"
