My Life In Soundtracks: Robert Rodriguez

The first soundtrack I bought...
It was either Jaws or the awesome Over The Edge. Over The Edge had The Cars, Cheap Trick (especially Speak Now), Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, and the Ramones.

The soundtrack that most inspired me...

Escape From New York. Tonally, it really made that movie, and was composed by the film's very own writer/director, John Carpenter. It inspired me to go on to compose my own scores.

Soundtrack currently on heavy rotation...
Ennio Morricone's The Untouchables and Bernard Herrmann's Vertigo. I was playing back both of these on the Sin City 2 set.

My soundtrack guilty pleasure...

Tom Jones's Thunderball. You can't beat it. It's also my go-to karaoke song.

Favourite song from a musical

Cool from West Side Story
