TODAY: What’s your favorite movie soundtrack?

I don’t recall being all that aware of movie soundtracks until I saw Almost Famous. It never really occurred to me that you could take a bunch of popular songs from an era and juxtapose them in such a way as to turn a film into “an experience.” And that’s precisely what Almost Famous is: an experience. Whenever I come across any of the songs from the film I get half a mind to stop what I’m doing and pull out the “bootleg cut” to watch.

Here are three of my favorite songs from the film. And yes, two of them are from Elton John.

Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters by Elton John

Tiny Dancer by Elton John

Feel Flows by The Beach Boys
