Before Spotify and iTunes, I relied on movie soundtracks to find out about new music. And luckily for me, 90’s movie soundtracks were pretty awesome. If you’re looking to discover some new-to-you tunes for this summer, here are some of my absolute favorites, like the Empire Records soundtrack above. 

Reality Bites is a 90’s classic — and the soundtrack is just as essential.

The Singles soundtrack is 90’s music at its finest — Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, Alice In Chains… Need I go on?

Of course I couldn’t do a post on 90’s soundtracks and omit Clueless! This soundtrack was the soundtrack to many, many sleepovers in my day.

Obsessed with The Great Gatsby soundtrack? Baz Luhrmann obviously understands the importance of music to movies, choosing Everclear, The Cardigans and Radiohead to compliment this classic story of Romeo & Juliet. This soundtrack is amazing.

I believe Spice World requires no explanation.

Can’t Hardly Wait is one of my favorite high school movies, and the soundtrack to this epic party is just as great.    [via Buzzsugar]
