The Greatest Indie Soundtrack in the World (69 Original Movie Soundtracks for Indie Lovers)

The Social Network and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World are responsible for this playlist. I watched them recently: I loved Atticus Ross & Trent Reznor soundtrack of the first, and liked the funny indie we-are-sex-bob-ombed atmosphere of the last. So I started googling the Web for a "indie-soundtrack-top-50", or something like that. Not finding anything I liked, I decided to create it for myself. 

Here it is. It's a collection of 69 movie soundtracks from the last thirteen years (1998-2010). Not all of them are indie. Let's say they're indie in the spirit. Unfortunately, I haven't found on Spotify all I was looking for. No Lost in Translation or Garden State, no Before Sunset or 24 Hour Party People, no Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, no Daft Punk's Interstella or Jonny Greenwood's Let There Be Blood. Anyway, I think the results are good. The problem is that now I'd like to watch many of these movies again. :o)

I made three playlists:
#1: full soundtracks
#2: one song each soundtrack, to have a sip.
#3: three songs each soundtrack, for a tastier sip. 


P.S. If you think I missed some unmissable indie-movie-soundtrack, tell me!
