    A two-disc set and only THREE score tracks? I am SO sick of ’60s movies OD’ing on songs from the time.

    • Splash says:

      So then you hate most films from a previous decade because they all do it. Scores are usually their own disc now any way.

  2. Justin Boggan says:

    LOL, it’s funny when you really think of it: “songs from and inspired by”? Can you hear the random current fart-in-the-wind song artist saying, “Yeah, hello big-time movie studio, I was so inspired by your film that hasn’t opened and therefore couldn’t have seen that I made a song for it! Yes, it’s purely coincidental I’m signed with a label that okay to sign with your studio, and wow — I got the song done in time for the 2CD set nobody asked for! Neat, huh? What the hell is this movie about again?”

    • Cindylover1969 says:

      I guess Universal feels obliged to mess up soundtrack albums for movies called “Legend.”

      • Justin Boggan says:

        All that’s left to do is replace Burwell’s score in the U.S. cut.

  3. Ragil Pembayun says:

    Quite surprised that Morrissey’s ‘The Last of The Famous International Playboy’ isn’t selected/doesn’t make the list even though the song is literally about the Kray twins!!!

    • kelly says:

      Morrissey may not have given permission for his song to be used.

  4. Steve Boyer says:

    Dawn Yawn classic Georgie. in my opinion the best of british. He used the money he made to finance a big band lp and this cut comes from that. It’s Elvis Costello’s favourite lp, it’s called Sound Venture.
