Track: ‘Pennies From Heaven - Kevin’s Tunnel Mix’
Artist: Inner City

If this acid-house origin story fell a little flat, at least it came with a five-star record box. A medley of early Madchester favs from the likes of Marshall Jefferson, Gat Décor, Leftfield and Frankie Knuckles had ageing clubbers rooting around for their rave whistles. The standout, though, is this gem by Detroit 4/4 gods Inner City.

1 Nice choices...
...but I had hoped for something from the vastly underrated (and Gosling-starring) Crazy Stupid Love, though - particularly the eerie, sad yet uplifting 'Blood' by The Middle East. A very eclectic and solid soundtrack. More

2 Great selection, but...
You forgot the absolute best song used in a movie in 2011: The Knack - My Sharona! Who wasn't coming out of Super 8, humming that fantastic song? You know you were! More

I have been feeling more and more anxious about the fact that i don't remember this year very well.. i had to dig my imdb ratings to get some hold of the year 2011. I need to start a sad and lonely blog just to remember! In a matter of 2011 movie/tv soundtracks, this is Empire's opinion as staff, i believe. My choices would be Thor - sons of Odin, HP 7.2 - Lily's theme, Statues and Courtyard Apocalypse, Rango - The Sunset Shot (and Stuck in a guacamole and other owl dialogues, also hilarious It's Metaphor's 0.29), Rango Suite. Potc 4 is somewhat awful, but Zimmer/R&G is brilliant. The Three Musketeer's tango based tracks ( Do you know who I am, Concealed weapons tango, and very heroic Round Two) And adding AC revelations trailer music: Woodkid -Iron. Yes, Game of thrones Intro rocks! Don't hate me! i haven't watched enough films from this year.. More

Lots of the songs on this list are also on my playlist. Though I really miss 'Magneto' from the X-Men: First Class track and at least one song from the Thor soundtrack. And I'm agreeing with others that Tron: Legacy's Derezzed shou'ld've had a spot on this list. More

6 Attack the Block
"Blap, blap, blap"!? Ouch. You've just shown your old age. Anyone under 25 could correct you there. The phrase is in fact "BRAP BRAP BRAP" - an onomatopoeia for a gunshot used by 'yoofs'. More

7 The Skin In Which I Live
I'm with Faris - The Skin I Live In was my favourite of the year, muchly looking forward to buying that soundtrack. Hauntingly, hypnotically beautiful. More

9 Panic Switch
If we're having Zeppo from the 'Sucker Punch' trailer then I feel 'Panic Switch' should be thrown in for its contribution to the second half of the trailer - great tune by the Silversun Pickups (1:15 onward, though not necessarily in the right order!). More

10 Some Daft Punk love...
Good list... I'd probably say that Tron: Legacy probably deserves a mention somewhere (probably for Derezzed... though there are numerous great songs from the soundtrack)... Daft Punk did an excellent job with that film I would say. More

19 Good choices here...

20 No Sean Spillane?
I'd say Sean Spillane's soundtrack for The Woman should have been featured. Specifically Distracted. More
