He believed he could fly

FUN WITH OST: ELMER FUDD IN DA HOUSE!

There, I've said it, OST's can be fun! Especially those that are hip hop/R&B oriented. You don't even have to see the movie, the OST in most cases stands well enough alone. For hours of fun, oh, the joy! Space Jam was "the jam" in 96, and I was itching to buy it, but baulked on account of R. Kelly's schmaltzy "I Believe I Can Fly". It's the worst thing he's done, yet it is also one of his biggest hits. So what to do? I bought the Seal single back then. But the OST proper kept cropping up in thrift. And when I saw it again today, and saw that it had Barry White on it, I said to myself, "to hell with R. Kelly, this is Barry White!" And Barry White is just one of several winners on here. So I can overcome my aversion to "Fly". Hell, even that song doesn't sound too bad, now that 96 is distant past...

Tarantino comps tend to be peppered with dialog snippets, though.

I think every OST should do that.
