Just barely missing the cut, but worth a mention is Flash Gordon (1980) noteworthy pretty much only for its Queen soundtrack, which certainly had 70s sensibilities.

Saturday Night Fever (disco?)

Quadrophenia While it includes some 60s music, it is all about The Who.

Good Morning Vietnam

That 70’s movie… oh wait nevermind.

Most Quentin Tarantino movies. Sorry if I spelled Tarantino wrong.

@marina Reservior Dogs…great example. Also Pulp Fiction.

sndfreQ's avatar

Yes, trudacia; and perhaps the best Tarantino 70s soundtrack goes to Jackie Brown.

trudacia's avatar

Yeah, he rocks!! I love all Tarantino soundtracks.

breedmitch's avatar

You guys rock! This is exactly what I needed. Keep them comming. How about more films with classic rock but maybe not made in the 70’s? Would Detroit Rock City count? I never saw the movie.

trudacia's avatar

Check out the soundtrack from The Devils Rejects. I never knew of Terry Reid before and now I love him. Also includes some great music from that decade.

shrubbery's avatar

Donnie Darko Sorry that’s the eighties!
