    I certainly agree with those three. There was a film called Zabriskie Point that used a version of the Floyd Careful With That Axe Eugene in the final sequences. Films were also made of Woodstock and the less famous predecessor Monterey.

    I'm not much of a film buff, but I do remember that one!

    Obviously a flexible definition of sound track, my favourites include

    A Clockwork Orange
    Barry Lyndon
    2001 A Space Odyssey
    Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii
    Blade Runner
    Chariots of Fire
    Tommy
    Oliver
    Get Carter
    Gladiator
    Gallipolli
    The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    Most of Morricone's film and TV music is excellent and rates with the giants of film music, Dimitri Tomkin, Max Steiner, John Williams and Hans Zimmer. There's also for TV Jan Hammer (Crockett's Theme) and Mike Post (Hill Street Blues).

    Obscured by Clouds is the soundtrack for a film called La Vallee. I've never seen it and ObC isn't the greatest Floyd album.

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.
