Morning Ride (1:34)

Laced with almost metaphysically challenging guitar work and laden with rich, full-orchestral arrangements, The Princess Bride soundtrack qualifies as one of Mark Knopfler’s cinematic triumphs. Romantically lyrical melodies like “I Will Never Love Again” contrast brightly with fun frolics like “The Friends’ Song” and edgy mood pieces like “The Cliffs of Insanity. ” While most soundtracks are really just compilations of hits or variations on a single theme, Knopfler’s play more like symphonies, each movement as fulfilling as the last. Though The Princess Bride doesn’t quite carry off the emotional impact of Local Hero or Cal, it does offer up some terrific music and one good love song, Willy Deville’s “Storybook Love.” —L.A. Smith
