A movie's soundtrack is as important as the movie itself. It stirs emotions, which makes the film even more memorable. Here are 7 films that have done a great job of putting together A+ tracklists to give you the best movie experience:

1. The Twilight movies. Comment all you want on the entire movie franchise, but you can't deny the fact that they have the best lineup of songs for the soundtracks. From Twilight to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, a few of the music industry's best artists' tunes were used.

Play: Angus & Julia Stone's "Love Will Take You" and Iron & Wine's "Flightless Bird, American Mouth"

2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The OST is as charming as the movie. In the album's liner notes, the movie's director and the novel's author Stephen Chbosky wrote, "Over many years, I have collected songs. I’ve shared them with friends. And they have shared their favorites with me. Some of the songs are popular. Some of them are not known by a whole lot of people. But they are all great in their own way. And since these songs have meant a lot to me, I just wanted you have them as a soundtrack for whatever you need them to be for your life."


Play: The Smiths' "Asleep" and Cocteau Twins' "Pearly-dewdrops' Drops"

3. The Fault In Our Stars. The movie's soundtrack was as highly-anticipated as the movie itself. And why not? A few of this generation's best artists came together to bring us all the feels in songs that were actually used for the scenes.

Play: Kodaline's "All I Want" and Indians' "Oblivion"

4. (500) Days of Summer. The quirky love story has an equally quirky movie soundtrack, which made the movie more depressing than it already is.

Play: The Smiths' "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" and Simon & Garfunkel's "Bookends"

5. Divergent. One of the good things about Divergent's movie soundtrack? It will put you in full Dauntless mode, wishing you can go about your day while Ellie Goulding's song is playing in the background.

Play: Ellie Goulding's "Beating Heart" and M83's "I Need You"

6. The Hunger Games movies. We totes think this is a trend: These YA movie adaptations giving us the most memorable soundtracks, too. The Hunger Games movies are no exception.

7. Begin Again. Aside from the songs that were written especially for the movie, we also love Gretta (Keira Knightley) and Dan's (Mark Ruffalo) playlists!

Play: Keira Knightley's "Like A Fool" and Adam Levine's "Lost Stars"
