Films are ace right, but sometimes the soundtracks can make it or break it. There’s nothing like a brilliant film with a phenomenal soundtrack, it makes a big difference. If theres a boss bit in a film and the song playing at the time is amazing you remember the scene with the song playing in the back of your head.
Anyway here’s some boss soundtracks, in no particular order……
Pulp Fiction (1994)

“you know what they call a… a… a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?…..They call it a Royale with cheese”




If you’ve seen the film, then A) You know it’s boss and
 B) You’ll know this tune and the dance off by heart. It’s iconic.

Chuck Berry – You Never Can Tell
Other great songs on the soundtrack include:
  • Kool & the Gang – Jungle Boogie 
  • Neil Diamond – Girl, You’ll be a Woman soon
  • Dusty Springfield – Son of a Preacher Man
  • Al Green – Let’s Stay Together
to name but a few
Trainspotting (1996)

“It’s shite being Scottish”

Theres loads of big tracks in this film but I’d say the most memorable one for me is probably this one…. (it came close with Iggy pop though)
