Fashion Rocks: Fashion Week's 10 Best Soundtracks

When the music is good the clothes look even better. Here, some of the most memorable soundtracks from New York Fashion Week.

Tommy Hilfiger
Hilfiger's collection was entitled "Preppy with a Pop" and he delivered sing-along, feel-good pop classics for his runway show, which not only wrapped up fashion week, but closed down the Bryant Park tents for good. (Next season, fashion week moves uptown to Lincoln Center.)

1. Stereogum & Teams, "Without A Love Story" (Taylor Swift vs U2)

2. Kim Carnes, "Betty Davis Eyes"
3. Neil Diamond, "Sweet Caroline"

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Frederic Sanchez's upbeat string of hipster favorites for the king of the hipsters.

4. Hot Rats, "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Rights (To Party)"
5. Crystal Stilts, "Love is A Wave"
6. Oh No Ono, "Helplessly Young"

3. Can, "Spoon"
4. Four Tet, "Angel Echoes"
