I’ve been aching to compile this list for months. Sometimes I think I blog just to keep track of whatever is happening in my overwrought mind. Then, ages later when I read what I’ve put down on paper (well, digital paper), it comes back to me in the form of a very welcoming memory, complete with the state of mind I was in when I wrote a particular piece. There I go again with the rambling so before I get carried away, the list of some of my favorite movie soundtrack moments; gooey, melty and buttery (awesome sigh moments!) and some pivotal moments too! I tried to rank, but it’s impossible. So, to preserve my sanity, this is a non-ranked list. [MAJOR SPOILER ALERT in some cases]
- The De Lessep’s Dance by Stephen Warbeck for Shakespeare in Love
- Golden Years by David Bowie for A Knight’s Tale
- The Riders of Rohan by Howard Shore for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
I was unable to find the clip I wanted for this one so it’s an audio clip only!
- Dil Se Re by A.R Rehman for Dil Se
- The Scientist by Coldplay for Wicker Park
- Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap for 500 Days of Summer
Frustratingly I can’t find the clip from the movie anywhere but I guess this is good enough.
- Inama Nushif by Brian Tyler for Children of Dune
- When the World Falls Down by David Bowie for Labyrinth
- Let It Be [Cover] by Carol Woods, & Timothy Mitchum for Across the Universe
- Mad World by Gary Jules for Donnie Darko
Thank you for suggesting this one Dua!
- When Your Mind’s Made Up by Glen Hansard for Once
- Bheegi Bheegi [Cover] by James for Gangster
Can’t say much about the movie but the song is brilliant! (The original track is in Bengali by a band called Krosswindz)
