forest gump.......great songs....all classics.

Exactly what I thought when I saw the thread

It is also cool how they use time-period correct music for each part of the movie. (in the beginning of the movie there is rockabilly and Elvis , during the vietnam part there is hendrix , etc.)

Heavy Metal had a good soundtrack
Yes indeed.
The movie was lame, but the soundtrack is damned good.
Lotsa songs unavailable anywhere else, so it's worth the money.

My favorite of all time is the theme song to TEAM AMERICA - World Police.

"America! Fxck yeah! Coming to save the mother-fxcking day, yeah!!!"

I keep saying I'm gonna work up a guitar-based version of that and record it...

The string music in "Platoon". I forget what it is called but it is a really sad string piece.

Actually I'm not joking. The songs and how they really parodied the whole heavy metal culture was really smart.
