Yes, it was Oscars season, and while I never get the chance to really see any of the movies that are nominated, this time of year always gives me an opportunity to dust off my soundtrack collection, and see what I've got. While I don't always listen to my soundtracks (guilty of buying many of them for the cover art alone) I am reminded that a good soundtrack album can function as a wonderful "mixtape" of sorts: take Tarantino and Scorsese films, for example. It's as if Marty and Quinten sat cross legged on a floor to find the tracks to perfectly highlight their filmic vision (which, in many cases they may have).
In any case, watch the video above and listen to the program. Perhaps I showcase some of your favorites, what are they, by the way.
Happy Oscars watching!
