Discovering New Music Through Movie Soundtracks

So I was listening to the ‘Big Lebowski’ soundtrack this morning on Spotify; this wasn’t the actual soundtrack CD but a playlist that someone else had put together, so the tracks were all taken from their original CD’s.  As I am listening to this very eclectic mix of music, it hit me that this could be a great form of music discovery.

What if you could get a giant database of movie soundtrack music and use that for creating a playlists.  Not only do you have the standard relationships between tracks (artist, albums, genres), but you also have the relationships between movies, as well the related emotions attached those movies.  Start with your favorite movie, and branch off from there.  You may discover some new music, and possibly some new movies to watch.

Anybody know of a database of movie music?
