Best Soundtrack Album
I could name a bunch, but in the interest of not hogging them all, I'll just start with the Trainspotting soundtrack. Great album.

14. Oh yes, I have that too
It has several excellent Julee Cruise songs on it, along with numerous beautiful instrumentals. (I have one of her CDs as well).

20. Requiem For A Dream
Clint Mansell with the Kronos String Quartet. Brilliant. Doubled the emotional impact of a spectacular film. Love the cello dirges.

21. Titanic
When teenage girls stay through the credits so they can sing along with "My Heart Will Go On," it must be good.
