Best song from a movie

    I've been replaying the version of "The Ecstasy of Gold" from Metallica's S & M album. I can't remember not only hearing, but feeling a better song from a film. The way it was done in The Good, The Bad & The Ugly was good, but if you get a chance, download the one from S & M. Metallica just recorded their own version on the tribute album to the song's composer. It's OK, but I wouldn't drop everything to hear it.

    The main theme from The Last of the Mohicans.

    Stirring piece of music.

    Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider ... as Louden Swain is pumping himself up for the big match with Shute, then he rams through the double-doors into the gym. Perfect song for the perfect moments in a perfect coming-of-age movie.

    I wouldn't be able to call myself an ex-wrestler if I didn't include Lunatic Fringe on my top 5 movie songs list. I would list them all right now, but I can't remember the other five. :eek:

    Bruce Springsteen - Streets of Philadelphia
    Set the tone for the movie pretty well

    Shout - Otis Day & the Knights
    A perfect toga party song

    Shama Lamma Ding Dong - Otis Day & the Knights
    perfect song in response to "Otis my man!"

    I absolutely love that song from Gladiator -- it's the only reason I bought the soundtrack several years ago.

    And the version of Ecstasy of Gold on S&M is superb.

    And and great call on Lunatic Fringe. That song almost saves the fact that there's no way Louden and Shute could be in the same weight class.

    ThreadJack: Sportschick, Do you recall what thread Cadet wrote the line you quoted? After reading it, I'm curious what the tread was about and want to read the whole thing.
  12. 1) As Time Goes By -- Casablanca
    2) Women of Ireland -- (The Chieftains) Barry Lyndon (Download this immediately).
    3) Theme From Local Hero -- Mark Knopfler
