I would think Harold and Maude would definitely qualify,

although it doesn't seem an official soundtrack was ever released.

Rushmore had a pretty good soundtrack,

http://www.amazon.com/Rushmore-Original-Motion-Picture-Soundtrack/dp/B00000HZPY/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-5791205-4542015?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1193312234&sr=1-1

And Life Aquatic has to be one of the more inventive soundtracks, although I liked the Seu Jorge CD better,

That title,Tea for the Tillerman, really brought back home the sound from Harold and Maude which i guess was our last opportunity to see Ruth Gordon at her quirkiest moment, the epitome of a long career.

Dug up an old essay about the Patton "soundtrack".

Does Quadrophenia qualify as having a soundtrack or was it scored?

hmmm... well the album came out many years before the movie...

I always liked Who's Next better,

http://www.amazon.com/Whos-Next-Who/dp/B000002OX7/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-7886885-8579000?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1193472343&sr=8-1

and Tommy did more for me than Quadrophenia as well.

I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite out of those three. Who Are You is definitely #4 on the list, but 1 thru 3 would vary.

The DVD of The Kids Are Alright ranks right up there as well,

Another blast from the past,


http://www.amazon.com/Rolling-Stones-Rock-Roll-Circus/dp/B000621484/ref=s9_js_pop_title/103-7886885-8579000?ie=UTF8&pf%5Frd%5Ft=101&pf%5Frd%5Fm=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf%5Frd%5Fp=278240301&pf%5Frd%5Fs=center-2&pf%5Frd%5Fr=1Q8NGAH2KKJYK8EKS2AB&pf%5Frd%5Fi=507846

While it doesn't rank as one of the Stones' better efforts, it certainly makes for a great curiosity piece, along with Gimme Shelter.

I posted about this in books, but it may be of interest here:

If the 2 NPR interviews I heard are any indication, Oliver Sacks's new "this is your brain on music" book sounds (get it?) fascinating.  (This link to amazon has a few related videos, hope it works)  http://www.amazon.com/Musicophilia-Tales-Music-Oliver-Sacks/dp/1400040817/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-9000503-2260437?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1193518607&sr=8-1

I love it that there are more areas of the brain that "light up" on an EEG during engagement with music than almost any other activity.  WOOT!

I heard Sacks the other day on Fresh Air.  Sounds like a great read.

Teaching music gives an interesting perspective of how the brain works.  The studies I've seen indicate that practicing music forms new pathways between the right and left brain.  This makes sense to me, as reading and playing music requires the use of language and spacial reasoning.  (Something that I find less easy to explain is that elementary piano students often experience a growth in mathematical skills while more advanced students who spend many hours a day practicing (we're talking career oriented) experience a deterioration of math skills.)
