    The TRON: Legacy soundtrack, by Daft Punk, is amazing.

    I agree entirely, another book that was way better than the film was Rambo - First Blood - excellent film anyway but the book is brilliant.

    I also have to add The Ruttles

    Narrator: Stig, meanwhile, had hidden in the background so much that in 1969, a rumor went around that he was dead. He was supposed to have been killed in a flash fire at a waterbed shop and replaced by a plastic and wax replica from Madame Tusseaud's. Several so-called "facts" helped the emergence of this rumor. One: he never said anything publicly. Even as the "quiet one," he'd not said a word since 1966. Two: on the cover of their latest album, "Shabby Road," he is wearing no trousers, an Italian way of indicating death. Three: Nasty supposedly sings "I buried Stig" on "I Am The Waitress." In fact, he sings, "E burres stigano," which is very bad Spanish for "Have you a water buffalo?" Four: On the cover of the "Sergeant Rutter" album, Stig is leaning in the exact position of a dying Yeti, from the Rutland Book of the Dead. Five: If you sing the title of "Sergeant Rutter's Only Darts Club Band" backwards, it's supposed to sound very like "Stig has been dead for ages, honestly." In fact, it sounds uncannily like "Dnab Bulc Ylno S'rettur Tnaegres." Palpable nonsense.

    and the Spinal Taps.

    But that wasn't written for the film, was it? So is it the music or the placement in the film?
    Ride of the Valkyrie is one of Wagner's greatest hits! He wrote loads of other stirring music - try some!

    As for Rambo - book was much better than the film and if they had stuck to the plot there wouldnt be any of those sequels as he dies at the end

    Its a bit of both I suppose, the music is wonderful in conjunction with the scene it is used in .... not usually a massive fan of classical music tbh but there are certain pieces that I can listen to and enjoy .... Carmina Burana being the obvious as its a stirring piece of music in its own right .... would you class "Tubular Bells" as classical? thats possibly my favourite piece of music of all time!!

    As far as books are concerned I cant think of one that the film is actually better ... not off the top of my head anyway,
