        After re-reading the original post... "of all time" comes back to me...

        as much as I love the "Seattle Sound" we can't compare it to timeless classics like stuff from the Beattles...

        I imagine songs from albums like Help, Hards Day Night, Yellow Submarine... and whatever other Beattles movies...

        nothing can compare to that.

    If I had to chose one from all time, it would probably be the theme to Starwars. Not sure if they made a soundtrack of that, but that is one that comes to mind.

    The Sound of Music would be another one, and the Wizard of oz.
    I'm sure there a lot of Disney films that would give these a run for their money. But, since I have not seen any in a while, I would have to think about it. Maybe Fantasia.

    Maybe Hello Dolly. Saturday night Fever, and Grease.

    I recently saw the new release of "Hairspray" with John Travolta. It was a very good movie, and had some great music.
    Some of it was even kind of funny.

    wow... Really surprised there is very little mention of one of my favorite composers who also has been fairly prolific and done a lot of great soundtracks... John Williams.  I love all six Star Wars soundtracks, though I think my favorite is Phantom Menace (I love the chorus in the Duel of the Fates).

    A very close second to one of the Star Wars pieces would be the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.

    (I actually have a number of composers that I really like, but these two groups of scores in particular are among my favorites).

  35. CrimsonBelle profile image57
    CrimsonBelleposted 7 years ago

    I think that some of the best movie soundtracks don't always have to have singing or a "Main song". My favorites are Star Wars saga, Last of the Mohicans, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings.

  36. brimancandy profile image79
    brimancandyposted 7 years ago

    The only one I can think of is the Sound of Music. There are a few other posts for it, but, I personally think it is the only one that has songs on it that everybody knows.

    I think my favorite songs are "Sixteen going on 17" and "My Favorite Things." I even sing that song when I'm feeling down, and it kind of makes me feel better.

    My mom also has the soundtrack to "Hello Dolly."

    But I think more people would be impressed by "Grease." and "Saturday Night Fever."

    I also like "Victor Victoria" which is another Julie Andrews film, and one of my favorites.

    I grew up on show tunes. What can I say.

    My favorite movie song is "Somewhere of the Rainbow." From the wizard of Oz. And "If I were the King of the forest." So, I guess you could say the sound track from "The Wizard of OZ"
    is one of my favorites too.

    I should also add the soundtrack to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." If you listen to those songs enough they will mold into your brain. Like the "Time Warp" Song, "Dammit Janet. " and "Sweet Transvestite." Halrious!

    1. brimancandy profile image79
      brimancandyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Just to add. I watched the Rocky Horror Picture show at a halloween party the other day. There were over 125 people there, and even thought it never got crazy, there were a few laughs, and you could hear people singing along to the Tunes. It is just one of those movies that will never go away. I love rocky horror!

      I just wished that the MC of the party would have stopped getting on the Microphone and talking crap during the best parts of the movie. H e talked almost all the way through the final song..."I'm Going Home." And, I just wanted to jump up and knock him out.

      It's like someone getting on the microphone during the National anthem and reporting the weather. It's something you just don't do! I can't tell you how many people yelled shut up! But, he just said....Hey you bitches! This is my party, and I'll talk if I want to....yak yak yak...Oh brother!
