"I've only got three compact discs: New Order, Joy Division and, rather surprisingly, the soundtrack for 'Amadeus', but there you are."

Peel played a wide range of movie music on his shows, from concert films and others involving regularly featured artists to songs used on soundtracks of big-budget Hollywood productions and vintage favourites from his youth, as well as more obscure selections.

In 1975, “On The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine” by Laurel And Hardy became a surprise Christmas hit after a single of the song from the 1937 comedy “Way Out West” was played repeatedly by Peel. In 1998, the programme of the Meltdown arts festival curated by Peel featured Dutch revivalist ensemble Beau Hunks playing Laurel And Hardy film music.

In a 2003 interview, the DJ named O Brother, Where Art Thou? as his favourite movie soundtrack.[1]
