Movie Soundtracks That Were Better Than the Actual Movie

While we continue to mourn the loss of buying CDs, we remember how movie soundtracks made this event extra special. Soundtracks bring these stories to life. And it helps being able to visualize the players (Hi Natalie Portman and Zach Braff). Even though we may not be buying or listening to soundtracks in their entirety these days, damn you, iTunes, there are still instances when tracks on movie soundtracks get more hype than the films themselves.

Take Lorde’s recent “Yellow Flicker Beat” from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, that made everyone momentarily forget there was a huge, highly anticipated motion picture attached. If you would’ve preferred jamming out to American Hustle without actually watching one second of the film, you feel me here. Seal’s “Kiss By a Rose” was actually from a famous superhero flick… remember? Here are some staff picks of movies that pretty much sucked in comparison to their kick ass soundtracks.
