MY Top 4 Movie Soundtracks!

After re-watching Scott Pilgrim vs. The World for the millionth time this week I ended up re-adding the soundtrack to my iPod - an amazing decision that has led me to decide my favs to add to said iPod so here is the list! (After much arguing with Maaa, I had to make this a 4 film list instead of 3, she's the weirdo)

4. Drive

Come on, you saw this coming. Hearing this for the first time blew my mind, and the movie spawned one of my favourite games of all time which has a (superior) Electronic-Pop soundtrack - Hotline Miami.

3. Akira

The soundwork on this film sets it apart from ANY movie - animated or not. Explosions are couch-shakingly loud and gunshots deafening, it's just sublime. The soundtrack is truly epic - I'm not one for those types of soundtrack but it melds so many different types of music together seamlessly in just one song. Above is the first track, and while not one of the described above it's the perfect song to drive bikes around Neo-Tokyo and be introduced into this masterpiece of film.

2. Jersey Boys (2014)

What can I say, I'm a sucker for the mafia style music of the 50's-60's.. This film has the catchiest damn songs I've ever heard, all day I've had this stupid Sherry on repeat NON-STOP in my head and I LOVE IT! Not only are the songs catchy, but the Can't Take My Eyes Off You scene in the movie is easily in my top 3 of all time, watch it already!!

1. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Listen, just because this is my favourite movie, comic-book series and I'm told I look like Scott DOES NOT mean I'm biased at all. This soundtrack was mostly composed, written and performed by the one and only Beck and it's quality shows. The diversity is HUGE, from the bass heavy Sex Bob-Omb to the electronica Katayanagi Twins this film has at least one song that could appeal to any music genre fan. It also introduced me to the AWESOME Canadian band Metric, the real world equivalent of in-series Clash at Demonhead, and they rock HARD.
