The Greatest Soundtracks of All Time

List Criteria: No scores, just soundtracks.

The best soundtracks ever are more than just a collection of songs in a particular order; they evoke and accentuates the feelings of a movie during, and long after, it has been viewed. This is a list of the greatest soundtracks ever recorded, as ranked by the Ranker Community. Sometimes a great soundtrack can elevate a mediocre movie into something that makes it iconic. Top Gun, Footloose, Grease... (best soundtracks ever!) these are great soundtrack albums that you listened to over and over, making the songs themselves so ingrained with the movie that they BECAME the movie in your head.
