105, Sundance Boulevard (105 songs from movies awarded at Sundance Film Festival)

The 2011 Sundance Film Festival kicks off today. This is a tribute to some of the greatest movies screened at the Utah festival in the last 25 years. And, especially, to some of the great music in them. Digging on Wikipedia and IMDB archives, I made a playlist of songs from awarded movies I found on Spotify. Below, you have the full list, year by year, with movie titles and prizes. One song each movie (only exception for the nice Dig! rockumentary: I HAD to feature both Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre).

Ah, there is also a bonus playlist: another little one for soundtrack lovers. A collection of nineteen full movie scores or soundtracks (you can archive it next to The Greatest Indie Soundtrack of the World collection I made a couple of months ago).


Stay in touch with the new playlists!
