I recently listened to the soundtrack from "How to Train Your Dragon" and thought it delightful on it's own (and for skaters.) There are a lot of soundtracks I enjoy but what to know what you like to hear ( whether applicable to skating or not.)

- Brazil (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EfgZ2oImXk&feature=related)
- The Draughtsman's Contract (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN-blEim2pc) (Probably my favorite of all of these. RIP Boob Spider (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=362nqSu4vQk&t=2m11s) and may the rest of us carry on (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bn0HfYkDGs)...)
- Fairytale of Wanderings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGsgG8nNVdk) (Yeah, I like telling other people how much I like this.)
- The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PwpOmjAu1M)
- The Hours (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj6BLyqTKDo)
- King's Row (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIbTqPWJF_M) (Not great enough to make me forget about the Iran-Contra affair, but still excellent (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2kmj8RL6-Y).)
- Philip Glass' alternative score to La Belle et la Bete (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r34abqPim8k)
- La Strada (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il9rLAg7Ezc)
- Miller's Crossing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2YPsfwSPGg)
- Underground (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEjley5HKBE) (Of course, "Kalashnikov" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtX-V4OE50Y&feature=related) is one of more durable earworms out there.)
- Vertigo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC5AzFc3coo)

I think the score for Lawrence of Arabia is the most gorgeous I ever heard.

I also love Last of the Mohicans.

If we're extending this to TV shows, I love the soundtracks from The Sopranos and Justified. Deadwood also had some fierce good stuff, and of course there was the ever-nostalgic Ken Burns Civil War....
