    What are your favorite songs from any soundtrack?

    Thought this was a fun idea.

    My top 5 songs:

    1. Appearances
    2. Complication With Optimistic Outcome
    3. One Particular Moment
    4. Eventually We Find Our Way
    5. A Thousand Details


    I absolutely adore Appearances. I think it's the best they've ever done, soundtrack-wise. I can listen to it on repeat for hours. I will never ever get tired of it.

    Before Gone Girl came out, I had a similar relationship to Complication With Optimistc Outcome. It's kind of funny that the song isn't even in the film. It sounds incredibly sad and beautiful at the same time. I love the combination of the synths and the NIN-typical swarm guitar.

    One Particular Moment just screams TRAR. It's really their signature sound. I love it.

    Eventually We Find Our Way is my second favorite song from TSN. That guitar part starting at 2:36? Pure awesomeness.

    Last but not least: A Thousand Details. I think that one speaks for itself.

    (Honorable mention: Hand Covers Bruise, Technically, Missing)

    So, what are your favorite TRAR songs?

    I like way too many of their tracks, so I'll just break it down by album. (I'm leaving out solo Trent work like Quake, Lost Highway, and Tetsuo: The Bullet Man, plus the vocal tracks from Dragon Tattoo.)

    The Social Network:
    Hand Covers Bruise
    3:14 Every Night
    Eventually We Find Our Way
    In The Hall Of The Mountain King
    The Gentle Hum Of Anxiety
    Soft Trees Break The Fall


    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo:
    What If We Could?
    With The Flies
    A Thousand Details
    An Itch
    Under The Midnight Sun
    You're Here
    Parallel Timeline With Alternate Outcome
    We Could Wait Forever
    Great Bird Of Prey
    The Heretics
    Infiltrator

    Gone Girl:
    What Have We Done To Each Other?
    Sugar Storm
    Just Like You
    Background Noise
    Like Home
    The Way He Looks At Me
    Technically, Missing
    Strange Activities
    Consummation

    @BRoswell Breaking everything down by album is exactly what I wanted to avoid! I think it would be interesting to see what your overall favorite songs are. Could you pin down five tracks if you had to choose?

    One Particular Moment
    The Hall Of The Mountain King
    Revealed in the Thaw
    Strange Activities
    Intriguing Possibilities

    That was surprisingly easy, as I love about 85% of the 3 Fincher Soundtracks.

    Intriguing Possibilities is great and Capture and Fenway is maybe my favorite TR instrumental of all time.

    I'd like to make a CD with "tr/ar selected soundtrack works" containing the obvious tracks like
    - Immigrant Song
    - Juno
    - A Minute to breathe
    - Quake 1 Theme Song
    - Watchmen 1 End Credits
    but also some not so obvious like

    lincoln tunnel
    clockmaker
    the dark knut returns
    carbon prevails
    What if we could?

    Any suggestions?

    As long as "8 Billion" closes out your mix, you have done things correctly.
