The Soundtrack: Danny Elfman returns to score this third intergalactic outing for the boys in black, and he’s on OK form, basically repeating the franchise’s already-established refrains.
Worst Song: The entire thing’s dragged down by Pitbull’s ‘Back In Time’, though. A shouty cover of ‘Love Is Strange’ by Mickey & Sylvia that’s more than a little headache-inducing.

Pretty sure Eye of the Tiger is Rocky III not IV. And how can you not like Take a Look Around? Great spin on Lalo Schifrin's original score. I do take it, however that TF are not fans of rock?

how can Titanic be on the list? james horners score is one of the best things from the movie (just a shame celine dions garbage is on it), i loved limp bizkit's Take a look around, although apart from that song & Metallicas "I Disappear" most of the other songs on the album werent very good

The Batman Forever soundtrack isn't that bad.
You can get MUCH worse the artists you listed.
Jun 19th 2012, 9:41
There were actually some okay ones on this list. At that time I enjoyed "Ghostbusters 2". It was just a little almost-80's nostalgia. "Armageddon" and "Space Jam" were alright...a whole different level than J. Bieber. Also "Pretty Woman" and "Knight's Tale" were good actually, some classic tracks. Especially "MI:2" was pretty good, the Metallica track rocked. But I agree of course with Bieber, H. Montana and...the worst of the worst: Titanic...two words: Celine Dion!

the pumpkins track is rockin', seriously. i think you guys are rating batman and robin the film and not the OST
Jun 19th 2012, 10:03
There's some gems in there - the Pumpkins track is brilliant, as is the Jewel track on Batman & Robin. Also, describing PJ Harvey as 'mainstream' is a little foolish. But fair play, your choices. I'd be very interested to see your top 50 soundtracks of all time. If it doesn't include The Fountain, The Social Network or Donnie Darko, I'd be very disappointed.

Enough with the nickname "Jacko"!

How is the Rocky 4 soundtrack on there???
it's as awesome as it is inspirational!!!!
i dare anybody to listen to that and then not get pumped up!!!!
Jun 19th 2012, 11:32
Wholeheartedly agree with Gypsyboy316. Rocky IV ia an amazing guilty pleasure movie and the soundtrack is a great slice of the 80's. see also 'Transformers The Movie'. I'm gonna get some real s**t for this aren't I?
Jun 19th 2012, 11:37
Hmm, comment vanished..Eye of the Tiger was repeated over the opening credits/montage, wouldnt shock me if they put it on soundtrack. Hearts of Fire is a decent enough song, no way worthy of the list. Some good shouts here though, far too much 'x raps' rubbish and dreary nonsense. Good to know someone else hates Dont wanna Miss a Thing, overused and with bordeline perverted undertones.
Top 50 soundtracks!
Jun 19th 2012, 11:54
@MoodyMonkey - Yessss, the Transformers: The Movie soundtrack!! Brilliant. Also agree with Gypsyboy316, the Rocky IV soundtrack is brilliant to work out to.
Jun 19th 2012, 11:58
Disagree with some of these suggetions, but most are right on the money. Plus erm... high school musical, pretty sure it didnt come out in 1985, was little Zac even born then?!
I've got the soundtrack to the Secret of my success on record.... Now, that's s**t
Jun 19th 2012, 12:16
Man I loved the Space Jam soundtrack as a kid! Especially the Space Jam song. Also, as you have stated the parody of 'I Believe I Can Fly' - shouldn't that prove it isn't that bad? Remember singing that in school and then teaching it to my little brother.
Jun 19th 2012, 13:43
And the Golden Child... man I bought anything in those days. I thought the Prince Batman album was pretty bad.. I seem to remember "Party Man" making it quite high in the hit parade
Jun 19th 2012, 14:11
Xanadu, The Crying Game, Kiss from a Rose, It Must Have Been Love, Kashmir cover Come with Me and Vince DiCola's Rocky 4 tunes are strictly wonderful. shame on you T.F.
Jun 19th 2012, 20:07
Some of them soundtracks are really good like the addams family song and ghostbusters 2. whats wrong with you :[
Jun 19th 2012, 21:22
Total Film is again making really, REALLY crappy lists.
Jun 19th 2012, 22:25
Rocky IV? Really? It should be nowhere near this list, great work out songs in there like no easy way out and hearts on fire. Its cheesy, like the film itself, but always rises a smile from me. Anyway, pretty spot on with the other choices.
Jun 19th 2012, 22:50
I know you shouldn't speak ill of the (recently) deceased but Whitney Houston's The Bodyguard has got to be the worst soundtrack album I've ever heard.
About Grease 2... Terrible, terrible, terrible... except for the song "Reproduction" who's actually pretty funny.
Jun 20th 2012, 8:32
"Kiss From a Rose" and "Hero" are amazing songs! WTF??
Jun 20th 2012, 14:50
South Park.. oh, more singing? Thaaanks.
Jun 20th 2012, 19:51
Mission Impossible 2 theme was dreadful totally agree it peed all over Shifrin, none of these soundtracks are rock they are girl rock and soft rock. The Titanic soundtrack was actually quite good, Horner is a master and is there any point salgging Nickleback they are a load of girl rock c**p.
Yeah Eye of the Tiger was Rocky 3, tsk tsk.
Jun 21st 2012, 10:26
Damn! i love every single track from Queen of the Damned soundtrack, and you think marilyn manson's song is not quite gothic?! c'mon man!
Jun 21st 2012, 17:42
You must be joking! Batman Forever soundtrack is brilliant. Wrong decision. BIGTIME!!!!
Jun 27th 2012, 0:23
Another Josh Winning special. Seriously, Jason Voorhees was less of a hack.
Jul 6th 2012, 16:23
As an avid Beatles fan, I thought the Across the Universe soundtrack and interpretations of the songs were F'n brilliant. Let it Be, I've Just Seen a Face, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Hey Jude, I am the Walrus, All You needd is Love, Dear Prudence, If I Fell, the list goes on. The actors were pacas rally cast with their voices in mind, particularly Joe Amderson, but I think they did great under Tambor's direction.
