1) This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
The Soundtrack: Satirising cock rock as it does, Spinal Tap needed rocking tunes to back up all the nod-wink spoofery – and boy does it have them. Hilarious and catchy in equal measure.
Best Song: ‘Big Bottom’, of course.
2) Whip It (2009)
The Soundtrack: Drew Barrymore proves she knows what she’s doing both in front of and behind the camera with her directorial debut, which comes with a powerhouse soundtrack packed full of foot-stomping anthems.
Best Song: ‘Pot Kettle Black’ by Tilly And The Wall will have you clapping along as you dig out your rollerblades.
3) High Fidelity (2000)
The Soundtrack: An explosion of effusive indie pop. The compilation of artists fleshing out this record would surely do the music shop characters in High Fidelity proud, with Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello rubbing shoulders with Smog and Stereolab.
Best Song: Stevie Wonder’s sonorous ‘I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever)’.
The Soundtrack: John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd’s music-infused comedy featured no end of cameos from serious music stars – among them Ray Charles, James Brown and Cab Calloway – which means this OST has serious soul.
Best Song: Aretha Franklin swings considerable diva heft with show-stopper ‘Think’.
