What is your favorite movie soundtrack? (OK, top 3 if you must!)

Here’s how your Scholarly Writing Retreat colleagues answered today’s question!

Eek — I don't have a favorite movie soundtrack! Is it a sign I must watch more movies?

— Emily


Love this question! I can go on and on but if I must pick 3: The Sun Also Rises (2007) by Joe Hisaishi; The English Patient (1996) by Gabriel Yared; Cinema Paradiso (1991) by Ennio Morricone

— Summer Sun


Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (I could listen to Annie Lennox's "Into the West" forever), Purple Rain, Dazed and Confused and because I can't stop myself at 3: Singles


The soundtrack to Drive (2011) makes the film and is a perfect accompaniment to any long drive (especially at night). More recently, I enjoyed the soundtrack to Booksmart (2019), and I really love teen movie soundtracks in general (Grease, Clueless, etc.).
