@Lash,
FM mentioned Ashokan Farewell too - tied with the reading of the Sullivan Balloo letter from the Civil War Soundtrack is amazing - I get shivers just thinking about it. Freaky.

If the Donnie Darko only had the Gary Jules version of Mad World on it would still be worthing buying.... Best. Cover. Ever?

@Lash,

we chose it for the music at my husband's funeral service.
Its a brilliant yet simple piece of music.. I told my wife to consider two pieces of music for me (should I go first). either the Ashokan Farewell or Warren Zevons "Keep me in your heart for a while". Both bring tears to my eyes.

Yeah - that is a great cover.

I also love this soundtrack pretty much in its entirety:

I love Danny Elfmann's Edward Scissorhands soundtrack - worked with the movie beautifully - it's just a pity every soundtrack he's done since sounds the same.

@farmerman,
(smiling) Will now listen to Zevon's song. The Ashokan Farewell was indeed lovely and evocative.

@hingehead,
Oh my gosh! When I saw Donnie Darko, I fell in love with that song, HH. It's on my playlist now.

I forgot about this - one of my favorite soundtracks ever - and especially this song:

Also love the soundtrack to Dangerous Minds - Coolio did the most famous song off that one - Gangster's Paradise - sampled off Stevie Wonder.

I like the whole soundtrack really - but am especially glad to have discovered Rappin' 4Tay (get it - Forte) and Aaron Hall - who'd I'd never have heard of otherwise. Good thing about this one is that my kids like it too - so they don't make me turn it off or change it in the car - we can ALL enjoy it together- and it has a good message:

In terms of movies that use existing music as a soundtrack...

Dogs In Space has always been a fave

In a similar self-destructive nihilist way, Repo Man rocks too!

An a fitting last place to a trilogy of counterculture films is the Liquid Sky soundtrack, possibly the first done on the Fairlight CMI, worked perfectly with a movie made by Russian emigres about New York's underground being visited by a malevolent alien - truly other worldly music. Still.
