Not to be confused from my last card in which I've mentioned movie composers. This one is on my favorite soundtracks with songs from different artists that best fit the movie's theme and overall story.
Vanilla Sky. The elastic beat of alternative rock and dream-like, poetic lyrics was given much praise and is the main reason why this film was given a cult status, even if it's brain teaser tastes weren't for everyone. The Popular songs include the main theme song simply entitled "Vanilla Sky" by Paul McCartney, and "Svefn-g-englar" by Sigur Rós.
Lost In Translation. The signature music for this lonely love story is the haunting guitar pieces which gives a hi-tech urbanity sound, playing in some of the more exciting or sad scenes. Some of the popular songs include "Just Like Honey" by Jesus and Mary Chain, and "Sometimes" by My Bloody Valentine.
Superfly. The psychological vocals and exploitation, such as "Freddie's Dead" is so fine with it's narrative instrumental funk and arrangement sounds like the soundtrack itself is a neo-noir story.
Trainspotting. One of my favorite British films, this one hazes around with many pop and dance songs like Underworld's "Born Slippery" and the perhaps one of the more fitting songs is "Temptation" by New Order.
Boogie Nights. I've been on an 80s spree lately and Boogie Nights has a great mixtape filled with sumptuous tracks such as "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger, and "Machine Gun" by Commodores. It may be too vague for today's listeners looking for a bit of happy-go-lucky vibe, but it's intolerable to say the least.
Goodfellas. There's a love connection between, well, love songs and gangsters. Then it's gritty with and collected with Muddy Waters and Harry Nilsson. It's one of the many soundtracks Martin Scorcese put on top as as most recognizable music caterings ever.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Life locked inside the mind is more immersive and the songs listed give a melancholic, and imaginative outlook. From failing relationships, and letting go of everything, this soundtrack has the feels from "Chains Of Love" by The Dirtbombs, to "Don't Kiss Me Goodbye by Pierre Emery. This is one that probably has fewer tracks, but it's enough.
Rushmore. All thanks to director Wes Anderson's high fructose style of music and composer Mark Mothersbaugh's instruments, this one gives a funny, rebellious tune with some slow and smooth changes. Popular songs include "Nothin' in the World Can Stop Me Worryin" and "Here comes my baby" are great.
50/50. There are ups and downs from getting sick, and then there are songs that share the same pain and fun. Songs like "High And Dry" by Radiohead, and Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam offer moments of rendition and reconstruction.
Into The Wild. Sometimes having just one artist is enough to go around. This is another soundtrack done by Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder and while it does have instrumental tunes, songs like "Society" and "Big Hard Sun" are ones that give a feeling of escape with haunting melodies from the guitar and other orchestral sounds.
