As a side benefit of running a website list SweetSoundtrack.com, I get to reacquaint myself with a lot of really great movies and their soundtracks. As a feature/goal of the website, I want to build a definitive list of the 100 best movie soundtracks of all time. I’m sure other have tried this, but like any movie/music buff, I think we can do a better job. As an added bonus, I’ll be able to easily feature song clicks and full track listings using the parent site.
So what are your favorite movie soundtracks of all time (and why)?
Some early contenders (this list will grow)
- Pulp Fiction
- Forrest Gump
- Dazed and Confused
- American Psycho
- The Big Chill
- Dead Presidents
- The Doors
- Apocalypse Now
- Top Gun
SweetSoundtrack.com is a new resource for quickly obtaining soundtrack information for all your favorite movies. If you are anything like me, you regularly hear an awesome song in a movie and immediately want it for your itunes collection. The problem is, unless I wait for the credits, I need to go online to figure out the name of the songs I liked. “Sweet Soundtrack” solved this problem for me – and hopefully you too! Simply type in a movie, and get a soundtrack list. Nothing more, nothing less.
I have a lot of plans for the website moving forward. In the near term, I want to integrate with iTunes, so you can hear samples of the songs from the website. I also aim to add scene descriptions, along with the ability for users to add scene description on their own.
It’s been an exciting journey developing sweetsoundtrack.com. What started as a quick side project to teach myself the ASP.NET MVC3 framework, has finally blossomed into a “proof of concept” that I’m happy to share with the world. I hope you like it!
