EW's 25 Soundtracks

Music is the key

End of years and decades always coincide with Best/Worst Of lists, which will probably become annoying as hell by December. Might as well get a head start, like the folks of Entertainment Weekly are doing this week with music in films.

The trade decided to look beyond the decade though and list the 25 best movie soundtracks of the last 25 years. Of course this one isn't an exception to the fact that a lot of people will be screaming bloody murder at some of the choices -or lack thereof; myself first!

Anyhoo, since I hate 25-section features which is just a lame way of generating large amounts of clicks on a website, I'll spoil that list for you all. Unless you'd rather go and discover it one by one for yourselves RIGHT HERE.

Thanks to the Collider bunch for the heads-up.
