Movies That Sound as Good as They Look

Plinky said, "Name a movie that has a great soundtrack."

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!
