Great thread Robby! So it looks like the songs don't have to be originally released in conjunction with the film, but merely featured in it.

First off, I too love Goodbye Horses from The Silence of the Lambs and Every You and Every Me from Cruel Intentions.

My faves in no particular order...

Bittersweet Symphony ~ Cruel Intentions
Cosmic Dancer ~ Billy Elliot
Elephant Love Medley ~ Moulin Rouge
Trash City ~ Permanent Record
Pretty in Pink ~ Pretty in Pink
Love My Way ~ Wedding Singer

America ~ West Side Story



Can't Help Falling in Love ~ Some Kind of Wonderful



Sweetness Follows, Good Vibrations, Where is My Mind?, and Rez ~ Vanilla Sky



Festival and Never Hear Surf Music Again ~ 127 Hours




May add more...

"Trigger Hippie" by Morcheeba from "Playing God" (Skye Edwards is my favorite vocalist of all-time! Marvelous song.)

Box of Moonlight is my favourite soundtrack.
1. Mexican Radio - Wall Of Voodoo
2. Red Right Hand - Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
3. Blues Before Sunrise - Elmore James
4. Big Black Sky - Chaser
5. Too Much Tequila - The Champs
6. Carioca - The Fireballs
7. Wayward Nile - The Chantays
8. Lost Time Blues - The Chrome Cranks
9. Wheels Over Me - Die Haut
10. Gun Control - Tom Dicillo
11. Opening Titles - Jim Farmer
12. Tomato Field Fight
13. End Titles - Jim Farmer

but it left out Peter Murphy's "Cuts you up" which played in the film.
Al [John Turturro] found a tape in a rental car named 'Eddie's mix #1". Eddie has cool taste. I've named every mixed cd I ever made "eddie's mix 1" since 1997.

The Lost Boys- Cry Little Sister
Velvet Goldmine- the entire soundtrack
Whip it- Your arms around me- Jens Lekman but the whole thing is great. Drew Barrymore did a good job.
Labryinth - hard to pick a fave so the whole stk.
Some velvet morning Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood - Morvern Callar
Six Bells Chime by Crime and The City Solution - Wings of Desire
 

Oh my god. it's Robby!

some excellent choices, I particularly like:
The Killing Moon -Echo & The Bunnymen. From Donnie Darko.
People Are Strange -Echo & The Bunnymen. From The Lost Boys.
almost put both those down

thanks :) and yeah, I just figured it would be to time consuming for me to limit it to songs first released in conjunction with a film :confused::o
also, from your list I like
Bittersweet Symphony ~ Cruel Intentions
Cosmic Dancer ~ Billy Elliot
Elephant Love Medley ~ Moulin Rouge
Pretty in Pink ~ Pretty in Pink
Love My Way ~ Wedding Singer

America ~ West Side Story

interesting, but was wondering of "Love My Way" also was on the "Pretty In Pink" soundtrack?
too lazy to check for myself :eek:

most especially, I adore Bowie's "Labyrinth" soundtrack, cannot believe I forgot it from my list!
so, if I had to pick one song from it, it would be:
As the World Falls Down :blushing:
