Sound Off: Coloradans Pick their Favorite Movie Soundtracks
A great movie is something that sticks with us for a long time, sometimes for our entire lives. Sometimes a certain role played by a certain actor has an impact on us, sometimes the overall story does the same thing, and sometimes it's the music that accompanies the film.
What would the gruesome ear-slicing scene in Reservoir Dogs be like without 'Stuck in the Middle with You' playing in the background? Or how about the scene in Silence of the Lambs where the girl is jamming to Tom Petty's 'American Girl' prior to being kidnapped by Buffalo Bill?
There are even cases where a movie's soundtrack is praised over the film itself such as the panned Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan film 'City of Angels' which included the then-unreleased song 'Iris' by Goo Goo Dolls.

In addition, some films that were mentioned like Grease, Dirty Dancing, and Heavy Metal include iconic songs that were written specifically for the film and are forever tied to the movies that made them famous.
