I felt inspired to write a bit about Soundtracks, the source of the inspiration is a great Netflix show called Stranger Things

stranger-things-netflix-trailer

Without spoiling the show for you it is a really well put together series that draws a lot of creative influences from 80’s cinema.

Stranger Things has a very moody soundtrack and constantly gives you clues about the era’s cinema through dialogue and well placed poster art. This made me feel quite nostalgic about the period when I first started collecting LP’s.

I have always liked collecting Vinyl Soundtrack LP’s, the simple reason being that you not only got the music from the movie, you also got a 12” card sleeve covered in the poster art.

So here are a few examples of what came to mind while watching the show.

 

The Goonies:

Brilliant poster art from Drew Struzan combined with 80’s pop!

Firestarter:

Great story from Stephen King and “weird” synth prog from Tangerine Dream.

Escape From New York:

John Carpenter’s music at it’s creepy best.

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind:

Here the John Williams soundtrack manages to perfectly capture the scale of this epic piece of cinema (Genius).

Aliens:

Simply terrifying, the soundtrack always makes me jump out of my skin, well done to James Horner.
