Maybe not the greatest soundtrack ever, but certainly the best soundtrack quality to film shittiness ratio.

All this magnificence puts into sharp contrast the woeful soundtrack that accompanied the tv show "a touch of frost", which comprised the same eight shit saxophoned notes every time frost walked out of a wanky council estate kitchen.

Not the greatest movie ever, but the soundtrack is good if like a bit of 70s funk and soul.

Tracklist here

standout tracks for me - Issac Hayes does Walk On By and Issac Hayes again, but this time with 11 minutes of pure funk'd up cover version of Look of Love

Danny Boyle filums tend to have killer soundtracks.
