Movies That Sound as Good as They Look

Sound­track Cov­er Print Out

There are so many! If I had access to my full music library right now, we could be here all day, because i do love movie sound­tracks. For simplicity’s sake, I decid­ed to leave musi­cals out of this dis­cus­sion.

My first pick is Choco­lat, a love­ly French movie from 2001 star­ring Juli­ette Binoche, Judi Dench and John­ny Depp. If you haven’t heard the score you’re miss­ing a trea­sure. It has been on my list of favorites since see­ing the film over a decade ago. It includes pieces by Djan­go Rein­hardt, Duke Elling­ton, Hoagy Carmichael and George Gersh­win. With a line-up like that, how could it go wrong?

My sec­ond choice is anoth­er an old favorite, Prac­ti­cal Mag­ic. Faith Hill’s “This Kiss,”, “Black-eyed Dog” by Nick Drake, and “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell are just a few of the won­der­ful cuts from this CD. I can lis­ten to it over and over again and hear some­thing new in the songs each time.

Now it’s your turn — sug­gest some­thing I haven’t seen that will make me sing or dance!
