Top Movie Soundtracks (Rock & Pop)

Music Lists - Soundtracks and Theater

A movie soundtrack or motion picture soundtrack conveys emotions that the dialogues or the visuals of the film cannot.  It adds texture to a specific scene, pumping it with energy, adding a hint of irony and humor, or punctuating its melancholy.

Many soundtracks feature original songs by established recording artists.  Some of the best are compilation of songs that are surprisingly hidden gems, unearthed by the auteur director.  The best soundtracks take you to the world that the movie inhabits. Many of them gives you pure listening pleasure, even without the movie context.

Although some of the most effective movie soundtracks consist of instrumental and classical music that enhances the film’s mood, many contain pop and rock music that help not only the movie’s artistic merit, but its commercial success as well.

Below are the best pop and rock movie soundtrack albums that should be a part of an enthusiast’s music collection:
