Top 5 Tuesday

I think Patrice was a little busy this last week, so I went ahead and came up with a topic, and I'm going to keep it open for her to let me know whenever she thinks of one.

I was listening to my iPod the other day when I came up with this one. Do you ever watch a movie because you just love the music so much? Maybe I'm strange, but I really like movie soundtracks, the ones with the actual film scores. I mean, I like movies with great songs, but I also like the background stuff. I wanted to do something really cool and add a music player with my favorite songs from my top 5, but I just am not that good with technology yet I guess.

So my top 5 this week is...

Top 5 Movie Soundtracks

1.My first one is Robin Hood Prince of Theives. One of my all time favorites. I just love the music, and I'm not talking about the Bryan Adams song, although I did listen to that one about 8 million times, or until the tape wore out. The song I really like is the main theme song.

2. Castaway. Again, I love the theme music. At the end of the movie when he's visiting Helen Hunt's character the music is playing when they are outside in the rain.

3. City of Angels Alanis Morrisette, The Goo Goo Dolls, and Sarah McLachlan, what else do I need to say there.

4. Dazed and Confused. Great movie (even though I was never a rebel stoner) and an even better soundtrack.

5. Backdraft. Another one with a really awesome film score. I don't know what it is, but I can listen tho the entire CD over and over.

Sorry my answers were so short, I'm trying to get this done so I can get to bed at a decent hour and still give everyone time to come up with your answers. As always, if you don't have a blog, feel free to list your favorite's in the comments, and to those of you who have some serious problems limiting yourselves, by all means, go for 10! Have fun!


  1. Great topic! Hopefully I will get a chance to write this tonight and have it post tomorrow, or maybe I'll have a break tomorrow! ahh I need my blogging time!! lol
    Yes, I was super busy this week... thank you for still keeping it open for me when I have failed you 2 weeks in a row! I sent an e-mail w/ an idea, I guess you didn't get it, but that's totally ok because yours was way better! lol

  2. This was a great one, and challenging for me! You see, I have a wonderful memory, but when it comes to movies, I completely blank. I really had to think on this one, but it's definitely my top 5 list! Thanks for hosting every week - it's so much fun!
