At this point, since its 1968 release, you can certainly call The Graduate soundtrack legendary. The accompanying music to Mike Nichols’s The Graduate starring Dustin Hoffman is a film that today is so ingrained in popular culture. And the soundtrack itself can be seen as a precursor to many on this list—one that puts the music that it uses into the DNA of the film. Who doesn’t here “Sound of Silence” and think of the blank, handsome face of Dustin Hoffman as a college graduation who has no fucking clue what’s next. And it’s the perfect soundtrack to listen to when you have no idea what you’re doing next too. —Kerensa Cadenas
