Plinky Question of the Day


The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.

Name a movie that has a great soundtrack.

I’m going to cheat on this one and list two movies that have fantabulous soundtracks.  They are:

Your turn ladies and gents. Name some movies you thought had amazing soundtracks.




  1. This is a question for the boyfriend. He's the knowledgeable music person. I'm just like, "OH! GOOD SONG!" and turn up the radio.

  2. @ Amanda - LOL!

    @Briana - Good choice. Couldn't agree more.

  3. I love Dirty Dancing. I'm going to go with Purple Rain. It's really scary when you can recite the words after years of not hearing the song. I have the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack in my car right now. So 80's and Blue Grass. Yea weird.

  4. @Jen - Purple Rain's a good one and I see nothing wrong with jamming to O Brother Where Art Thou in the car. Rock. It. Out. ;-)

  5. YES! LOVE DD. And Garden State introduced me to Frou Frou. Great choices.

  6. Dirty Dancing is a given!! That's a damn good soundtrack :) Oh and Grease...everyone loves Grease!

    I also loved the soundtrack for Queen of the's got Korn on there, no way that's not full of awesome! lol

    Believe it or not, I also liked the soundtrack for the original was way better than the actual movie, lol.

    ♥Isalys / Book Soulmates

  7. @Isa - Grease is DEFINITELY up there. You're right. If Korn is in the track listing there's no way the soundtrack is NOT full of awesome. ;-) LMAO! Touche my dear.

  8. Dirty Dancing and Grease are definitely the best two out there. I also love Moulin Rouge's soundtrack. In fact, Jason and my wedding song comes from there! lol

  9. @Julie - I don't think I've ever watched Moulin Rouge. Which song from the movie was your wedding song?
