Today's video is the Rolling Stones - She's A Rainbow, which I "liked" on Spotify after enjoying the soundtrack on Cruella. The movie was enjoyable enough, but the soundtrack really stood out for me, with a groovy, 60's London rock vibe going, and some exposure to tracks and artists (Ike & Tina!) I'm glad to add to my listening.
What's a favorite soundtrack for you, or one that opened you up to some music you needed to be paying attention to?
And drop your lists.
Have a groovy Friday, folks.

Well heck -- soundtracks, now you're speaking my language. I spend many a day listening at StreamingSoundtracks and broadening my knowledge of the genre. I guess the ones that were the biggest eye-openers and favorites for me were:
There are a whole lot of one-offs from various movies and games* as well.
*game soundtracks have serious budgets and get the full symphony treatment much of the time -- lots of great stuff to be heard
I don't know why but I had a copy of that Danny Elfman compilation when I was relatively young, and I really liked it.
High Fidelity and Almost Famous
Almost Famous showed more there is more to the Beach Boys than surfer songs and I should deep deeper into staple Classic Rock artists like Rod Stewart and The Who.
High Fidelity I came for The Kinks and stayed because of Smog and The Beta Band
1. Soul to Squeeze - Red Hot Chili Peppers
2. Life to Fix - The Record Company
3. Pets - Porno For Pyros
4. Tanque-Rae - Nick Lowe
5. Everybody Hurts- R.E.M.
6. Hearts - Marty Balin
7. Daytime Friends - Kenny Rogers
8. Morphine Song - Ray Davies
9. My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get it) - En Vogue
10. Yahoos and Triangles - The Refreshments
The only reason I didn't put High Fidelity on my list is that you already mentioned it.
This was a little tough for me. I wouldn't say any of them were completely revelatory, but they nudged me further and faster in directions I was kind of already heading. In no particular order:
The Royal Tenenbaums/Rushmore
Lost in Translation
Do The Right Thing
