We’re back baby! This past spring we rounded up 10 of our fav 90s soundtracks to help get us through the rainy days. Now, summer is here, and we’ve returned with some more of our favs (in no specific order) for all your summer slumber parties or a chill too sunny Sunday. Either way, one of these picks is sure to do the trick…
Come on and slam. And welcome to the jam. Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes cast do it up in this 1996 release that is sure to make you nostalgic, featuring slam dunk tunes from Salt-N-Pepa, Monica, Coolio, Seal and more.
She’s All That
Fun fact: M. Night Shyamalan helped worked on the screenplay for this 1999 rom-com while adapting Stuart Little and writing a spec script for The Sixth Sense. The soundtrack features the likes of Liz Phair Jurassic 5 and Fatboy Slim.
This 1992 classic must be mentioned. Whitney Houston. Need we say more? This soundtrack was in fact co-executive produced by Whitney Houston herself. Of course, it would later become one of the best-selling albums of all time, and grab a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Who could forget Houston’s hit take on Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”?
The Fifth Element
The 1997 sci-fi thrill joyride stars Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman and Milla Jovovich. As eye-catching as the film’s costume design by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Éric Serra’s score plays a huge role throughout the film, creating an exciting and textured world. Also, space opera.
Madonna takes on an iconic musical role in this 1996 film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber piece, inspired by the life of Eva Perón. As Madonna explained, “This is the role I was born to play. I put everything of me into this because it was much more than a role in a movie. It was exhilarating and intimidating at the same time … And I am prouder of Evita than anything else I have done.”
Party time! Excellent! Who could forget this 1992 hit?! It’s no wonder that this soundtrack quickly jumped to number one on the chart. There’s Alice Cooper (“We’re not worthy!”), The Ballroom Blitz and that iconic Queen moment with the boys singing-along to “Bohemian Rhapsody” – Party on Garth. Party on Wanye.
This 1994 rom-com is not only directed by Ben Stiller but also stars Stiller, alongside Winona Ryder & Ethan Hawke. With a soundtrack featuring Dinosaur Jr. & U2 to match, the “Gen X” fest also showcases music by Hawke himself. Lisa Loeb’s placement on the film even earned her the distinction of being the first artist to top the Hot 100 before being signed to any record label!
This 1996 cult fave has songs from Letters to Cleo, Elastica & more + SPELLS! What more do you need? We *are* the weirdos Mr…
This 1999 film adaptation of 1782’s Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos was the original Gossip Girl – but better. It stars the babe cast that is Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair with the soundtrack starring The Verve, Garbage, Manic Street Preachers, Blur, Placebo and more.
Okay okay okay, it’s not technically a soundtrack but we say that it counts seeing as the Spice Girls released their second album Spiceworld at the same time as this 1997 blockbuster movie. And it’s like, all the same songs so whatever… it counts. It *is* the soundtrack. The Spice Girls did so much their soundtrack is also an album and they’re just on a whole other level. It’s obliviously a number 1 chart topper and features a handful of cameos by fellow legendary acts like Elton John and Elvis Costello. Girl Power!
