Arbitrarily picking from the relative random list of the following choices (based on the simplest of Advanced IMDb searches of movies I've rated over the past decades).

These are song based soundtracks (not score based soundtracks) to help whittle it down considerably.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
A Prairie Home Companion (2006)
Magnolia (1999)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

I guess I'll nominate Amy Mann's focused Magnolia soundtrack... if you please.

Thanks.

I was really thinking about FYC'ing some of my 25 most favorite films, but then I remembered the front runner for 26th or 27th (now that I'm 27 I'm really thinking on expanding the list yearly or once in a few years) which has the most perfectly eclectic soundtrack ever: 
Lost Highway (1997)

Leave it to
David Lynch to have Angelo Badalamenti and Trent Reznor  to compose original score and then use songs by David Bowie, Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins... With all of that paradoxically fitting together like a glove.

Good idea! I'll have to think through my favorites and choose one. Pulp Fiction, Magnolia,  Reality Bites, and The Graduate are a few of them but I'm definitely missing some.

Taxi Driver, any work by Bernard Herrman seems exceptional.

I am most impressed by both the stand alone success of the songs and its integration into the film of these two movies.

1. Purple Rain Poster

The film is tied into the album of the same name, which spawned two chart-topping singles, "When Doves Cry" and the opening number "Let's Go Crazy", as well as "Purple Rain", which reached number two. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score. The soundtrack sold over 15 million copies in America alone, and 25 million worldwide.[9] The film also coincided with spin-off albums by The Time (Ice Cream Castle) and Apollonia 6 (their self-titled album).

2.Across the Universe Poster

The soundtrack includes seven songs from The Beatles (also known as The White Album), five from Magical Mystery Tour, five from Abbey Road, four from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, three from With The Beatles, two from A Hard Day's Night, two from Let It Be, one from Help!, one from Rubber Soul, and three other non-album singles.

Urbane,

I added Purple Rain since you listed it first as your choice. Please let m e know if you want to change it.

Thanks.

Yes, I think that is best, as both the Purple Rain movie and album were released about the same time.The number of tracks on the album to chart is impressive

I mentioned Across the Universe mostly because it is an intriguing movie with an amazing soundtrack, but the movie came long after the songs were established hits.

I suggest two small edits: (two commas, below I bold)

 Which soundtrack from the films listed below, selected by the members of the IMDb Poll Board, do you like most?

Stephen nominated my choice, Magnolia, and I couldn't decide on a second choice so I'll just vote for 'Magnolia.'
