Most Popular Movie Soundtrack?

By Lori Perkins


With all the disheartening news at the moment (the reveal of the awful racism of the royal family, the one-year anniversary of COVID and quarantine), I find it’s sometimes nice to be distracted by almost meaningless trivia. In that vein, I offer you these statistics that came in to RDN this month.


Redbox, the online and supermarket kiosk movie rental company, surveyed their viewers last month and sent a list of the most beloved, or at least popular, soundtracks of movies. Gotta’ say, I kind of agree here (and it’s nice to see so many golden oldies!)


What is your favorite movie soundtrack?

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy

  2. Dirty Dancing

  3. Purple Rain

  4. Footloose

  5. Saturday Night Fever

They followed this delightful bit of trivia up with a second fan-favorite question about favorite disaster movies. Here I was surprised that there wasn’t at least one virus/zombie movie (World War Z?), but perhaps that’s just too close to home at the moment.

What is your favorite disaster movie?

  1. Avengers: Infinity War

  2. Jurassic Park

  3. Independence Day

  4. Titanic

  5. Armageddon
