It's an odd time of year to be listening to it, but The Nightmare Before Christmas actually has a wonderful soundtrack. Lots of music in between the songs, and the songs are pretty clever, too! :)

Poor Jack, anyone?

I don't know if these are my favorite right now, but here are the soundtracks that my sisters or I purchased (on LP) when they were contemporary.  The list should give you some idea of my age group:

 

Jesus Christ Superstar

Rocky Horror Picture Show (I actually like the soundtrack better than the movie)

Rocky

Grease

Saturday Night Fever

The Wall

Flash Gordon (Queen)

Purple Rain

Footloose

 

All still classics.

Two other beautiful songs on Soundtracks.

In the little known "The Darwin Adventure. 1971" with Nicholas Clay, is a marvelous musical score running through the film. The great interplay of flutes and various other instruments running up and down the scale is quite beautiful.

In a 1952 British film called Star of My Night with a ballet being highlighted, very similar inspirational music appears in two or three places.

I love the movie and the marvelous soundtrack. I was looking for a song I really like on the Soundtrack and discovered that it is the one under "Dances" precedig the Polka song.

Song of Bernadette Soundtrack makes me feel inspired. The entire film is outstanding, in my opinion.

I have other soundtrack favorites.

In the 1951 film "Half Angel", Loretta Young sings Castles in the Sand beautifully.

In the 1934 Barretts of Wimpole Street I like the song "Wilt Thou Have My Hand?" by Norma Shearer.

Sometimes we watch a film to hear the soundtrack. I do like to do this now and then. The marvelous film Odd Man Out has a wonderful soundtrack running through it.

For some reason, I've always really liked the main instrumental theme song to "Driving Miss Daisy." It makes me feel happy.
