"Edge of Darkness" 1985 - great BBC TV series and the soundtrack by Eric Clapton was just so perfect for the sinister plot.

Theme tune by Isaac Hayes - don't come much better than this.

Lots of the 'Blaxploitation' OSTs were and are still great. Here is a small list to check out

Superfly
Coffy
Blackula

Sammy Davis Jr's cover of Shaft Theme is brilliant. Always gets a good reaction on dancefloor.

I thought it was Rodney singing it for years.
Written and sung by John Sullivan, who also wrote the series itself.

Cheers! Written especially for the show although it was the 5th song offered by the composer after his first 4 were rejected.



The Sopranos, not just for the music, the intro video is class aswell.



And old classic... DALLAS. By far the biggest show on TV in it's day.
