Music from one of the greatest Rock and Roll movies ever!

Here is a list of the songs from the soundtrack to Almost Famous.

I love music.

I love Rolling Stone.

------------------------------

= I love Almost Famous.

This movie is about a young guy who dreams of being a music journalist. He ends up going on tour with the band Stillwater and writing piece for Rolling Stone magazine. The journey he takes makes an amazing movie. The music played in the background makes it even better. As far as I'm concerned, this soundtrack is compiled of some of the greatest songs ever created.

Almost Famous is my favorite movie. No question.

The film stars Patrick Fugit, Frances McDormand, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Almost Famous received four Oscar nominations; Crowe won one for best original screenplay. It also earned the 2001 Grammy Award Best Compilation Soundtrack Album.
