Romeo + Juliet Soundtrack, Volume 2
1996

Baz Lurhrmann's hyper-modernized version of Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed lovers was a two-hour exercise in sensory overload. As Romeo and Juliet, DiCaprio and Danes had to compete with hyperkinetic camera work, overloaded imagery, a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles setting...and a delicious soundtrack. Skip Volume 1 (the usual collection of singles) and head straight to Volume 2, where you can feast your ears on Craig Armstrong's lush score, sampled snippets of Radiohead, interwoven snatches of dialogue, and Quindon Tarver's remix of Prince's "When Doves Cry."
