My two favorite soundtracks both predate my birth, 1950's Third Man Theme by Anton Karas (which was in the Beatles early repertoire) and "Tara's Theme" from Gone with the Wind by Max Steiner. I loved the use of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" in "Say Anything", but not as much as the use of Leonard Cohen's "Sisters of Mercy", etc. in Robert Altman's 1971 "McCabe and Mrs. Miller".
