    Please don't use soundtracks that are just compilations of songs by popular bands. I mean original soundtracks.

    ESB SE is not merely my favorite soundtrack ever, it is my favorite *album* ever! :)

    After that, I'd say Raiders of the Lost Ark and the other SW movies.

    Gotta say, Shane is very nice too. I love the pounding bass as Shane rides into town at the end, and then when the orchestra comes in, sheer heaven.
