Music Monday: What's your favorite soundtrack?

I am a big fan of movie soundtracks. No matter the genre, no matter the movie, I love soundtracks. I find myself constantly listening to my soundtracks while at work: Grease, Footloose, The PowerPuff Girls, Mamma Mia! and many more are always on shuffle. My favorite soundtrack, however, belongs to what is also my favorite movie. The Dirty Dancing soundtracks (yes, there are 2!) are my favorite movie soundtracks of all time. Whether I'm grooving to "Johnny's Mambo" or singing along at the top of my lungs to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," I simply can't get enough. Here is a compilation of my favorite songs from the two soundtracks.

I like watching your fascination with Dirty Dancing, it is awesome!

My favorite sound track is probably Gone in 60 Seconds, because the music is awesome, like the movie... Ha!

My favorites would be The Matrix soundtrack, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation Soundtrack (the movie sucked, but the music was great!), Repo! The Genetic Opera soundtrack, the Mission: Impossible 2 soundtrack, the Batman & Robin soundtrack (check it out - it had some great songs on it!), and the A Night at the Roxbury soundtrack (it had some good dance tracks on it!)
