Re: 40 best movie soundtracks

That's kind of a weird mix of original material and just recycled hits. While some of the recycled collections, like Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, manage to put things in a different context and create something new and unique, most are just cynical attempts to cash in.
This list really seems to be missing out on old-fashioned movie soundtracks like "Lawrence of Arabia". "the Wizard of Oz", "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" or Miles Davis' work for "Elevator to the Scaffold". How about a "A Clockwork Orange"? There have been so many great ones over the years.
