Great movies with amazing soundtracks

I've recently written a myTake about classical music, so I decided writing another one sharing my favorite soundtracks.

Les Choristes

This was the first movie I paid attention to the sountrack. I first watched it at a very young age and my dream was to be a part of the choir and date the main singer xD - and since then, this movie brings me to tears every time.

Amelie Poulain

This was one of the first soundtracks that caught my attention. I watched it when I was pretty young too, and I was convinced that it was in fact a movie about me, as I really looked like young Amelie. I love how the songs sound melancholic, yet full of hope.

Betty Blue

One of the strongest and saddest movies I've ever seen, and one of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard.


Translates the despair and passion of the movie perfectly.

The Bridges of Madison County

A beautifully delicate song for this amazing movie. Love translated to sounds and chords.

Last Tango in Paris

Iconic. Eternal. Playful. This music is perfection when you're wandering through the streets of the city of Lights.

There are other ones that are great too, such as The Godfather soundtrack. What is your favorite? Leave it on the comments below!

  • This is a great mytake, PoeticMemory. I've often felt that some great movies were made not-so-great by having a poor musical score. Similarly, some good movies have been made awesome by an awesome musical score. I liked your clip from Amelie. I never saw the movie, but I remember seeing the trailer for it. Ironically I don't remember the movie we were seeing (an independent movie, I think), but my wife thought the trailer to Amelie was intriguing. Also, thanks for sharing the soundtrack to Last Tango in Paris, which I never saw, but the music is just great!

    So here are some of my favorite soundtracks:
    The Mission: The Climb (Ennio Morricone)

    A Shot in the Dark: Opening (Henry Mancini)

    Memoirs of a Geisha: Becoming a Geisha (John Williams, the soundtrack to this movie was an Argos of talent... my wife positively loved it)

    • By the way, I didn't know Eastwood composed the music for Bridges of Madison County. I know he's a composer, but I didn't know he did the music for that movie.

    • Thank you so much! And I couldn't agree more. I tried to put small pieces of the films to show how much different it is with a good soundrack.
      And how could I forget about Memoirs of a Geisha!
