My Favourite Film Soundtracks

10 Comments
Happy Thursday lovely readers. I'm sorry there wasn't a Monday post but I was ill with yet another cold (oh the joys of working with kids). I spend a crazy amount of time watching films and I spend an equally insane amount of time listening to music. So it's not really surprising that combining the two and listening to film soundtracks is something I love to do. As I love to share with you all my favourite things today I'm going to share with you my favourite film soundtracks, I'll leave a link to each of them so you can check them out if you want, enjoy!

As Amélie is one of my favourite films of all time it's not really a shock that this soundtrack is one the list. Composed by Yasnn Tiersen, there's few vocals on this album and mainly consists of an accordion and a piano. It's simplistic and utterly beautiful, I often have this on in the background while I'm writing. 

I love the mix of influences and musical styles used in this soundtrack it gives the album a really diverse feeling as each track is different. My favourites are "Lucia di Lammermoor" and "The Diva Dance".

I love me a bit of sci-fi and that's probably why Guardians is ,my favourite Marvel film, that and that the soundtrack is amazing. My favourite songs are David Bowie's "Moonage Daydream" and Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling".

OK, OK this one is cheating a bit but if you've known me for longer than 5 seconds than you know how much I love Studio Ghibli. The music to all of their films is absolutely stunning and magical and I couldn't chose just one film if I tried. It's incredible music that makes me feel so many different emotions all at once.

Again, if you've known me longer than 5 seconds you'll know I'm obsessed with Peter Gabriel. Although PG released this as an album rather than a soundtrack (don't ask me something to do with legal issues was going down I think) I'm still including it  on this list. The album consists of musicians from all over the world including the amazing Youssou N'Dour, who I absolutely love. This is an amazing album that I have to give my full attention to, its definitely not background music. My favourite tracks are "The Feeling Begins", "A Different Drum" and "With This Love". 


So those are a few of my favourite movie soundtracks. I hope you found something you're interested in listening to. 


Do you like any of these soundtracks? What are some of your favourite film soundtracks? 


Thanks for reading!

  1. I love listening to film soundtracks when I'm studying. My favourite's are 500 Days of Summer and all the HP soundtracks. I've also recently been loving the La La Land soundtrack maybe a little too much, because I can't get any work done for singing along to every word!
