Best movie soundtrack ever? Opinions may vary, but you can't deny how powerful and fitting of a role the musical backdrop plays on the gritty, heroin-induced trip that is the cult smash Trainspotting. Just as in the film, which celebrates a 20th anniversary this year, the 14-tracker starts with Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life," and includes tracks by Brian Eno ("Deep Blue Day"), Lou Reed ("Perfect Day"), Primal Scream ("Trainspotting"), Blur ("Sing"), Underworld ("Born Slippy (Nuxx)), Elastica ("2:1"), Pulp ("Mile end"), and more. It's an exceptional look at musical wave of the '90s in England where Britpop, techno, and electronic sounds coincided, with older rock/pro-punk also remaining influential.
