Soundtrack albums are a thing of the past that only a few can appreciate. It used to be that influential films came fitted with powerful music to match. Actors told the story on screen and musicians offered their version of the tale on wax. And no era spoke to the success of movie soundtrack albums like the 1990s. We can’t talk about epic films like Juice, The Bodyguard and How Stella Got Her Groove Back without conjuring up memories of the music that was featured in the film. Today as the Angela Bassett-starring How Stella… celebrates its 15th anniversary, we look back at some of the best soundtrack hits from the good ole '90s.
