Yet another puzzle from Inception

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Like most moviegoers after Inception, I left the theatre with a lot of questions about the movie. Last week, we were presented with yet another.  Inception's soundtrack is comprised of two elements: composer Hans Zimmer's largely ambient, stringy score, and “Non, je ne regrette rien' – the classic chanson sung by Edith Piaf, which Leo and his crew use to communicate with their dreaming teammates.  It is just a tiny bit more complicated than that: Zimmer used a sample of the Piaf tune in the making of his score, which he confirmedlast Wednesday (after Internet speculation).

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

No soundtrack is more perfect for your 2010 summer than this classic rock from 1991. Songwriter Billy Childish's bluesy punk rock pairs unbelievably well with the stripped-down vocals from the singer Holly Golightly. There's not a bad track out of the twelve delightfully brief garage pop tunes. Start with 'First Plane Home,' where the catchy group vocals and relentless guitar riff are through after just 99 seconds.
