Top 10 Movie soundtracks and a funny music t-shirt (PART II)
The second installment of our countdown, make sure to check out the funny first part here.
12. Jaws (most notable song: “Jaws Music” by John Williams)
Duh dun, duh dun, we always know that infamous Jaws music written by John Williams in 1975, for the last 35 years you can’t go near the sea or pool without some smartass humming this one. We all know Great White sharks aren’t quite as vicious as it makes them out to be in this movie, but it wouldn’t be much fun if it just swam round like some giant Nemo or something would it?
11. Pulp Fiction (most notable song: “Girl, you’ll be a woman soon” by Urge Overkill)
I can’t believe this movie is from 1994, I think of it as one of the more modern movies I like, I guess looking at this list, it probably is.
Like everyone else in the world, I love the intertwining but easy to follow storyline- it makes us all feel smart that we can understand it.
Great retro soundtrack but Urge Overkill’s cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Girl, You’ll be a woman soon” is exceptional brilliance.
10. Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (most notable song: “Dream Warriors” by Dokken )
Ahh, Freddie. This is a decent sequel, probably the best sequel of the bunch – and there’s plenty to choose from. It’s the only one other than the original with Heather Langenkamp (that’s Nancy Thompson) in it.
I love the puppet veins thingy, funny, and gory, what more could you ask for? A hot blonde topless nurse making out with a horny teen? That’s in there too.
Anyway, this has a track by the 80′s metal stars Dokken – Dream Warriors is one of the coolest (in a geeky way) tracks from the late 80′s and I love it. so nerr. They also did ‘Into The Fire’ on that movie which is well worth checking out.

9. American Beauty (most notable song: Theme song by Thomas Newman)
Rose petals never got in the way as much as they did in this 1999 movie.
The theme music for this movie is amazing, most of you probably know it as Jakarta “American Dream” which heavily samples it.
8. The Lost Boys (most notable song: “People Are Strange” by Echo and The Bunnymen)
What I like about this movie is the fact that there’s pretty much no substance, it’s just an excuse for a bunch of actors to dress in cool leathers with 80′s hair do’s and run around to rock music. “Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.” And it really does look pretty fun as long as you’re no-where near Sunnydale. Speaking of which this movie invented the much used Buffy phrase “vamp out”…quite the legacy. There was suppost to be a “lost girls” sequel but it wasn’t made, but a sequel did come out in 2008, Lost Boys: The Tribe, it’s suppost to suck (pardon the bad vampire pun). Whatever.. the soundtrack is pretty damn awesome, Roger Daltry covers Elton John’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me”, and Echo and The Bunnymen cover The Doors’ “People Are Strange”. Don’t forget to check out the very over the top gothic song ‘Cry Little Sister’ by Gerard McMahon too. Don’t leave without visiting our funny t-shirts
