What's more memorable for you -- The Big Chill, or the Big Chill soundtrack? 

In 1983, several famous (or now-famous) movie stars got together for an ensemble comedy-drama called The Big Chill. The consensus critical and audience opinion on the movie was: It's okay. Pretty good. It has its moments. But The Big Chill's soundtrack was something else -- a collection of beloved hits from the late '60s and very early '70s, the 10-track collection seemed to capture perfectly a nostalgia that was bubbling beneath the surface. It had been 15 or so years since the late '60s (a period we often confuse with the whole of the '60s), and those who recalled so vividly and fondly the Woodstock era (even if they weren't full-on Woodstock types) were looking around at the '80s and wondering what happened.
