On Fandom_Secrets, some one recently said they were ashamed to admit that they listened to OSTs to their friends, and I boggled. As I'm bored and putting off the housework, I thought I'd ask you guys what your favourite OST tracks are. Or even entire OSTs.
Do you like just to listen to them on their own, or do you just think they are awesome in the context of the film/show/game etc. etc. for setting the scene, or both?
Some of my favourite OSTs include...
Rurouni Kenshin OVAs. I love listening to these on their own and I think it goes amzingly with the OVAs)
The Village. (Whatever you may think of the film surely you must agree that the music is beautiful, even if it's not entirey to your taste. ;) It really sets the atmosphere in the film as well, but then I'm one of the few people who loves the film, so I may be biased.)
Some LotRs tracks. (I think the whole OST is good for the film, but I only like a few to listen to. The one presently on my MP3 player claims it's the trailer music, but I don't know. Also, the one in which one of the Hobbits sing is beautiful. And there is a Rohan one too, but I can't remember what it's called.)
Mulan 'The Haircut'. (I think the musical score on this film is wonderful, and really suits the film. I mostly love The Haircut, such determination packed into a short track. Some of the songs are a bit lacking, though 'I'll Make a Man Out of You' is always good for lols.)
The Lion King. (The OSTs are simply brilliant. I recently saw that again at the Lyceum, the woman who plays the part of Rafiki OWNS MY SOUL! She brought tears to my eyes, in a good way.
A Grisly Reminder (I'm not sure if this is off the actual film Halloween, or if it is just random halloween themed music. I just found it on youtube, lol.)
Some Harry Potter tracks. (I specifically remember liking 'A Window To The Past' just to listen to on it's own, but the soundtrack in general really goes well with the films, I think)
ETA: Also, thanks to F_S again, KOKIA, from Origin: Spirits of the past, kicks arse! I foget the name of the track. Chouwa Oto?
ETA the second: The Banquet/The Lengend of the Black Scorpion. Amazing soundtrack, I'll be buying it once I'm back at work, but my attempts to download it in the meantime are failing hard D:
I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones I remember off the top of my head.
Come, shamelessly share your OST love!
