The soundtracks of our lives - a list

Best soundtrack from a movie I've never seen (who has?) - Salvation by New Order.
Best use of music in a film - Lost in Translation
Best soundtrack inspired by filthy lucre - Trainspotting 2
Great soundtrack/ bad movie - The Truth About Charlie

And here's one of the best "soundtrack scenes" from a movie - Belle and Sebastian's "Stars of Track and Field" from Pumpkin. Talk about screenwriting to fit the lyrics of a pre-existing song! It was awesome to see B&S get the exposure and as part of the larger story this scene is excellent. As a stand-alone music video it would be kinda lame.
