Control. It's about Ian Curtis. I also like This is Spinal Tap.
I also forgot about Dig!, which is about the Dandy Warhols and The BJM
BA: Ian Curtis, in the above movie I mentioned.

"Across The Universe" (The Beatles)
My favorite movie would have to be Sunshine, a really amazing soundtrack, amazing acting, amazing visuals, and underrated movie. Probably the best sci fi movie this century so far...
BQ: Nirvana, it would be very interesting if they made a biopic about Kurt and all his bandmates instead of just Dave and Kris talking about Nirvana. My favorite band biopic by far would be Rush's "Beyond The Lighted Stage"

The Blues Brothers
The Blues Brothers 2000
Little Shop of Horrors
Fiddler on the Roof
The Sound of Music
Kinda hard to draw a line between 'music themed' and 'musical' ~ for me anyway.
Favorite movie: The Big Chill ~ which could also fit in with the above movies, the music in it is so great.
BQ: The "Classic Albums" that I like best are Cream: Disraeli Gears, and Grateful Dead: Anthem to Beauty, and movie: "Tom Dowd: The Language of Music". I've been hooked on band biopics for years.... VH1 rocks with those ~ Behind the Music, Legends, Classic Albums, Storytellers, Driven.
Nice call, Josh Bowlin! That's an amazing piece of work.

LOL, I love Spinal Tap!
I also liked Pirate Radio and Almost Famous.
My favorite isn't really a music themed movie but there is a lot of great music in it nonetheless.
It's "Roadhouse" with Patrick Swayze and featured Jeff Healey (both of whom are now dead) as the bar house band where Patrick worked as the bouncer. It's a really good film with some great music if you've never seen it!
BQ - Eric Clapton, I read his autobiography and it was so interesting I couldn't put it down.

Control - Ian Curtis , based on Deborah Curtis' book Touching From a Distance (which is a good read)
Sid & Nancy - more about the relantionship between Vicious and Nancy Spungen , but there are a couple of scenes with the band
Walk The Line (Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash)
When You're Strange (Doors documentary)
Pirate Radio - fun flick ! great soundtrack
Christiane F (it's not exactly about music , but it plays a somewhat important part - David Bowie's in it)
Kurt Cobain - About a Son (interviews of Kurt beautifully put together with videos from the place he was born , Seattle , bla bla)
Backbeat - about The Beatles , not a decent movie about them , it focuses more on Stuart Sutcliffe. It's enjoyable , nonetheless
I'm Not There - 6 actors play Bob Dylan , it's great. Cate Blanchett , in particular, is great in it
Stoned - about Brian Jones
BA : David Bowie
but none of that Velvet Goldmine crap , I hated it. I don't care if they say it was only 'loosely' based on David , it's ****.
