Best modern film musical OST's

Postby GoogaMooga » 24 Dec 2020, 03:53

Now spinning the ELO-ONJ collaboration, "Xanadu", from 1980. There are two versions of this, and mine is "From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack", which has the big hits: "Magic", the duet with Cliff Richard, "Suddenly", the opulent "All Over the World", and of course the title track, "Xanadu". I wonder if this is not the last great film musical OST, if there are any other modern OST's worthy of note.

"When the desert comes, people will be sad; just as Cannery Row was sad when all the pilchards were caught and canned and eaten." - John Steinbeck

It is 41 years old

This is my favourite of recent years - many rave over the same composers' Greatest Showman.

The Complete Jah Bob Mp3 set now available in the usual place, should you want one.
