Favorite non-John Williams soundtrack.
I wish they'd play the first track of that album over the intercom on flights to Israel.
The Pulp Fiction soundtrack was iconic and in 1994 you couldn't escape Urge Overkill's cover of that song. But to me, it's not got the same attachment factor as others from that era. And maybe it is era specific because trainspotting, Human Traffic, Singles, the Crow, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, and Judgement Night (which had this whole wierd, wonderful thing of metal + rap mixing it up, before nu-metal arrived).
Actually on that front:
The mix of dialogue from the film ("The weekend has landed!") and who's who of late 90s British dance music is the backdrop to the film that anyone who ate pills by the fistful and danced at raves with people whom were instantly the best friend or soulmate they'd ever had, only to be scattered the next day and morbidly aware of how little we had in common once the MDMA faded. Fatboy Slim, Dirty Vegas, Primal Scream, Armen van Buuren, and William Orbit - I'm 19 again.
Present is gone. Fantasy is a part of reality and we take the brakes off. We are thinking clearly yet not thinking at all. And this feels right. We stop trying to control things. Warm rush of chemicals through us. We are fluctuating. Is this brain damage? We forget all the pain and the hurt in life. We want to go somewhere else. We are not threatened by people anymore. All our insecurities have evaporated. We are in the clouds now, wide open. We are spacemen, orbiting the Earth. Yeah, the world looks beautiful from here, man. We are nympholeptics, desiring for the unobtainable. We risk sanity for moments of temporary enlightenment. So many ideas, so little memory. The last thought killed by anticipation of the next. We embrace an overwhelming feeling of love. We flow in unison, we are together. I wish this was real. We want a universal level of togetherness, where we are comfortable with everyone. We are in rhythm, part of a movement. A movement to escape. We wave goodbye. Ultimately, we just want to be happy. Heh, yeah. (Laughs.) Hang on... what the **** was I just talking about?
Edit: Have to say Above the Rim too, since 2Pac's "Pain" is on the cassette version but not the CD. Probably his greatest song.
Stand your ground. Kenny Loggins is, objectively, the undisputed king of movie soundtracks.
oh that part's right, of course.
it was my reading comprehension challenges that had me hauling ass out of here. but dig still caught, and rightly apprehended me. crime doesn't pay.
It does not, which is why you need to ban Sith Sensei Prime for his John Williams post.
i see my poor reading comprehension is contagious.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Straight Outta Compton
an utterly awful film but:
The Pantera track was a remix of Cemetary Gates where Phil didn't travel so back in time momentarily to a pre-pubescent stage.
How did I miss dis? A lot of the good ones are gone, but y'all gone and missed jungle book, and the soundtracks to beverley hills cop , and beat street. axel f, and the heat is on were the background music to the mid 80's and all that lush early hip hop was the noise our parents didn't "get".
And pretty much every song on the jungle book album is a banger
- wrong thread -
I fold, you win. 19 is the tits
Yeah but not a soundtrack. Post Axel F in the eighties thread!
-Manhunter- "In A Gadda Da Vida"
-Collateral made pretty effective use of Audioslave's "Shadow on the Sun" and Paul Oakenfield's "Ready Steady Go"
-And let's not forget one of the all time greats
I suppose it all depends on where Pulp Ficiton ranks on one's personal hierarchy of films; it would be in my top-10... maybe top-5.
Vanishing Point , one of the best movies ever and love that soundtrack
in a similar vein, does anyone remember the judgment night soundtrack? i never saw the film (i don't think many people did) but the soundtrack was pretty amazing. collaborations between 90's hip hop acts and 90's alternative rock acts. the teenage fan club and de la soul track was particularly amazing.
