I always believed the soundtrack is one of the most important features of a film. Not only does it set the tone, it can convey a mood during important scenes. From inspirational to heartbreaking, the soundtrack is undeniably important to a film’s success.
I had an opportunity to speak with Tom Getty, who composed the soundtrack for America Has Fallen. We chatted about his favorite soundtracks and the importance of music. Check out the interview and my ten picks of the best movie soundtracks.
Reckless behavior and bad attitude makes for an exciting soundtrack. Bruce Willis as Detective John McClane and Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson) don't disappoint in this high-octane film. Soundtrack by Michael Kamen.
Wrongfully accused and on-the-run, Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) must prove he's innocent of the murder of his wife. There are a series of high-impact chase scenes and the soundtrack by James Newton Howard keeps pace.
Not since The Godfather has a film's soundtrack been so good. The music matches the actions of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he struggles to work his way up the ranks of the wideguys. Martin Scorsese composed a masterful soundtrack.
Bodies pile up when Michael Myers return to his hometown and go on a murder spree. The music matches the tone, creating unforgettable scenes that leaves lasting impressions. Soundtrack by John Carpenter.
Guardians of the Galaxy's soundtrack was as much of a hit as the movie! Featuring songs from Classic Rock and Pop, everyone was buzzing about the nostalgia the music created for a fantasy world. Soundtrack by various artists.

Prince reached immortal status with the soundtrack to Purple Rain. The hard-pumping, bass thumping music is still played on radio today.
Remember that famous dance John Travolta? The film contains a mix of American rock and roll, surf music, pop and soul. It wouldn’t be possible without the awesome soundtrack by various artists.
The music from Grease is still used today in other films, such as The Secret Life of Pets hot dog scene. The soundtrack is by various artists.
