Some good choices here - Love the Game of Thrones theme and the Drive soundtrack was definitely one of the best for the last decade - Nightcall is a stunning track and perfect for the film. Some of my choices would also be

True Grit - Iris Dement: Leaning on the Everlasting Arms - the final credit song - nearly had me in tears.

The Inbetweeners - Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP - We No Speak Americano - horrible song but goes to show you can still create a great scene with a crap track

Warrior - About Today - The National - as with the film, a great slice of Americana.

Tyrannosaur - We were wasted - The Leisure Society - thanks to its all too brief run I didn't see the film so don't know if the song was in it - but the trailer is enough to see just how good the whole film must be.

We Need to Talk about Kevin - Buddy Holly - Everyday - how can such a cheerful and happy song be used to such creepy effect?

Hugo - Howard Shore - The Invention of Dreams - even just listening to it takes you on a cinematic journey

Submarine - Alex Turner - Hiding Tonight - could really pick any one of his brilliant songs from this soundtrack

I'd say Sean Spillane's soundtrack for The Woman should have been featured. Specifically Distracted.

............. Drive! That track by College is haunting and fits in so perfectly! I get goosebumps when I hear it! Drive for me is a faultless film!

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.

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!).

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.

"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'.

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.

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..

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!

...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.
