albums The Greatest Soundtracks of All Time  

3.1k views 37 items Embed
Personally I think that since movies can range from having 1 song to being actually musicals it is kinda hard to compare. A movie musical clearly has the potential to rack up a higher rank since even if only 2-3 songs rank highly that is likely to push it above a movie like Rocky which for most has one song that is memorable. Anyway I tried to rank my choices based on the number of and the quality of the songs included on the soundtrack. The top of my list are are all soundtracks that I purchased and they are ranked approximately by the amount I listened to them.
