Let's Ride!

The Ghost Rider movie and its soundtrack fit together well but I think a lot of the music itself doesn’t work without the film (and the amazing special effects) backing it up. My favorite song from the movie actually doesn’t appear on some versions of the soundtrack. It’s called (aptly enough), Ghost Riders in the Sky. It’s the only song on the CD that’s not an instrumental piece by Christopher Young and it has been performed by numerous people over the years but on this case it was given a unique sound by the Australian rock band Spiderbait.

I wasn’t too impressed with a lot of the tracks and only three of the instrumental pieces really stood out for me. They are Blackheart Beat, San Venganza, and the last song on the CD, The West Was Built on Legends… just don’t ask me what the chorus is supposed to be saying! The rest of the instrumentals just sounded like other familiar Marvel comic movies but with more of a gothic (and in some songs, western) flavor to it.
