1. The Mephisto Waltz
When I get a copy of this movie, I'll probably tell you a bit more about it. I've only read the book, though, so there's not much I can say about the film. HOWEVER, the soundtrack. Is. Incredible. I'd expect nothing less from Jerry Goldsmith, who is absolutely one of the most incredible composers of the last century in my opinion. Here's a quick sample of some songs from the soundtrack, and if you like it...I urge you to buy it.
2. The Fog (1980)
With the recent passing of Antonia Bird, I was saddened to realize there would never again be another wonderful film made by that woman. But this one will always live on, and the music? Incredible. Composed by Damon Albarn and Michael Nyman, this soundtrack takes folk music to a whole new level beyond the disturbing quality of Deliverance. Each song becomes darker and darker, and so to does the story, tying the music and film together flawlessly. Here's an example of one of the darker songs.
