50 AWESOME MUSIC MOVIES

 

Some of the best pieces of cinema have been defined by music - whether they be biopics focusing on musical stars, movies starring musicians branching out or simply films with a totally killer soundtrack.

We’re still waiting for the definitive Britpop film (though No Distance Left To Run comes close) – but Live Forever is a solid love-note to the era, even if it relies too heavily on Liam Gallagher’s show-stealing quotes, playing it for laughs rather as opposed to examining the true cultural impact, and never dwelling on the darker side (the rampant heroin use, for example).

Best music moment: You’ve heard all these songs a thousand times before, but the Oasis and Blur tunes still set the pulse racing.
