Music provides a distinctive stylistic motif in many movies.

i always appreciate a good discussion on the differences between soundtracks and scores...

and if i went for a soundtrack, i wouldn't go for anything that was just a string of different pop tracks...that to me is just a k-tel collection...i would go for something that has a connection to the film itself...depending on my mood, i would possibly choose...'the commitments', 'the five pennies', 'the idolmaker', or perhaps even 'the rocky horror picture show'...

and if i was in the mood for a score, (and i love scores), i would maybe hit...'the hustler' (paul newman film), 'star trek: insurrection', 'manhattan' (woody allen), 'the lord of the rings' (ralph bakshi film score), or 'batman' (the danny elfman score)... 

good question...

Breumaster,

This is an interesting poll suggestion. Please consider making these changes. I believe these suggestions will increase the chances that your poll suggestion would be selected.

I will review the choices and may offer suggestions on how to improve the text for your choices.

- - -

Please simplify the title of your list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021139444/) from:
What movie soundtracks and scores do/would you like to hear in your car?

To:
Driving to Movie Music

“Stylistic” is misspelled and sentence could be improved. Please change:
Music is a striking stilistic mean in many movies.

To:
Music provides a distinctive stylistic motif in many movies.

Please simplify this sentence:
While driving to work with the car / train / bus, what soundtrack or score would you like to hear on your equipment, to avoid the incessant tootling on the radio?

To:
While driving to work what movie soundtrack or score do you prefer to listen to instead of less desirable content available on the radio?

Alternate suggestion for a title: The Soundtrack of Your Drive to Work

Some other notes:
Irish should be capitalized
The comment on The Boat That Rocked should say "What's wrong with radio stations?"

Actually, you should review ALL of your text - there are several spelling and capitalization errors.

Here's a suggestion for you to add:
I love it when the characters in the film perform their own music - I can listen to a soundtrack like Sing Street, Almost Famous or Backbeat and be taken right back to the movie.

Are we talking soundtracks, scores, or both? It's complicated, though if you choose both then you're probably all set for including everything. There are so many good options/suggestions that I don't know if all the ones worthy of mention would fit on a solitary list.

To clarify, I take the bus. So perhaps it's different for me. So here's some soundtracks/scores that make particularly good bus music (and might translate well to driving):

FYC:
Swiss Army Man - Robert McDowell and Andy Hull
Anything by John Williams (Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, E.T., etc...)
How to Train Your Dragon - John Powell
The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit - Howard Shore
Sing Street Soundtrack

Hi, Sparse. We're talking about both. But the music should be connect to a movie in a striking way.
Like:

Footloose
The time-warp
The score from E.T.
The score from Transformers
The Score from Indiana Jones
The Soundtrack from Xanadu
The eye of the tiger
99 red balloons (real strong stilistic strike to demonstrate: it's the  80's! everytime i hear it, ithink of the Watchmen movie.)

Music, that has a real strong connection to the movie it supports. Music you think of a movie, when your hear it like Anton Karas and the Harry-Lime-Theme. I would collect that at #5:  "classical titles".

Hello, Partypeople! :D

I just corrected and shortened a few lines on mostly every # of the list, because it was so much to read. And I put a new number on the list, this is now #13. In "The Watchmen" were a few different styles to hear like oldies, pop and rock. I hope, it's more attractive now. What do you think of these changes, ladys and gents? ;)

Greetings. :)

No. 13 I'll take a mix of some different music styles from above.

Awesome idea!  I pick: "Mix of All Styles Above."  I love rock, 80's, classical, epic, musical, and some electronic.  I'm so weird.  :)
