Merchant and Ivory's first American film, Savages, features an odd and amusing song/dance called "Stepping on the Spaniel" which I quite like. You can have a glimpse of it at around the 30 second point here:

Three of my favorite versions of songs never made into the film--but both are available to see & listen to in the "General Discussions" Forum (I'm on an old computer that won't cooperate when I try to post anything more than words, Blast it)

 

Ava Gardner's version of "Cant Help Lovin' That Man" is heartbreaking & on key--but MGM dubbed her anyway--is in the "Ava Gardner" thread.

 

Audrey Hepburn's version of "Just You Wait, Henry Higgins", is the one song where she didn't have to trill like a songbird & can be seen after the "Show Me" video, both cut from My Fair Lady (1964) when Warner Bros. decided to use Marni Nixon to dub Audrey Hepburn's songs--AH has the edge on comic attack & accent, IMHO--search "Show Me' in "General Discussions."

I have several.  But, if you're referring to soundtrack RECORDINGS that are released for the general public or consumer market, the WORST, in my opinion, is the "hatchet job" donne by the label that released the OCEAN'S ELEVEN( 2001) soundtrack CD, which omitted a couple of the better pieces of music from that film.  However, as just a film soundtrack, I consider it one of the better ones in recent times.

 

I also dug the soundtrack for "That Thing You Do".

 

Going back to my dope smoking days( or, "daze" as my wife likes to call the time!)  I've often, and sometimes still do, just listen to the background music(or "score" as some would call it) of a movie.  Just sit there with my eyes closed and take in what the music is doing and how unique or "avant garde" it can sometimes be.  And in THIS category, I'd place:

 

THE WIZARD OF OZ;

ON THE WATERFRONT;

THE HUSTLER;

PAPILLON;

and, just about any film with a Franz Waxman score;

 

At the top of the list!

I started out with NOTHING...and still have most of it left!

The 2014 remastered Eric Serra soundtrack to 1994's Leon: The Professional

I checked Amazon first, and then decided to order it from Import CDs.

It really sounded good on YT, so I expect the CD to be wonderful!
