Quentin Tarantino has a new movie out?
 
2014-08-13 09:01:58 PM  
Worse songs ever. I mean they were piss poor pop songs from that era.

At least Taratino gets the cool stuff.

Liked the movie, despite its borderline silliness.

You missed an "ooga" there.

So the movie is really just the Time-Life "AM Gold" infomercial with Groot instead of Donny Osmond?
 
2014-08-13 10:55:30 PM  
That is a terrible representation of 70's music.

I am partially to blame.

You guys must need some serious validation if you're lionizing this kind of shiat.

Yeah. Like that song in Reservoir Dogs... I think it was by some band call Blue Swede or something? What was that song again... hrmmmm...

It's the #1 CD. It's #3 on the Billboard album chart. The Frozen sountrack is #6.

And that one is #10.

Welcome to 2014. In which a 70s mix tape and Weird Al both hit the top of the charts.

Snark aside, I LOVED the music from the movie and it was a perfect way to keep the movie grounded amidst all the craziness going on.
 
2014-08-13 11:55:07 PM  
And the #1 album from the 70s is by America.

/not really
 
2014-08-14 12:02:06 AM  
Not to take anything away from the soundtrack, but it's not as if there's any serious competition. When the most thought provoking mainstream artists are Lana Del Ray and Lorde, you could release some random cuts of Miles Davis or Siouxie Sioux farting into a microphone and it would still have more depth.
 
2014-08-14 12:08:17 AM  
Has been in heavy rotation the past 10 days or so when driving the van to and from work.  Standouts for me are "Go All the Way," "Fooled Around and Fell In Love" (love Bishop's guitar solo!), and "Cherry Bomb."  If I had to drop one track, "The Piña Colada Song" would have to be the one.
 
2014-08-14 12:14:14 AM  
Ain't No Mountain High Enough is from the 1960s.

Perhaps because the whole industry wore itself out last summer, which had some good stuff.

I can see Tarantino using most of the songs on the soundtrack.

1. Hooked on a Feeling - could have been used in an extended scene with the Gimp.
2. Please Go all the Way - could have been in True Romance in the final scene.
3. Spirit in the Sky - the almost rape scene in Kill Bill.
4. Moonage Daydream - Fight scene in Dusk Til Dawn
5. Fooled Around and Fell in Love - when the bride kills Bill.
6. I am not In Love - Planet Terror,  the one legged sex scene
7. I want you Back - Would have been the perfect song to have been playing when Willis see Marcelus at the traffic light
8. Come and get your love - any scene with Pam Grier in Jackie Browne
9. Cherry Bomb - Any Uma fight scene in the Bills.
10. Escape - Michael Madsen could have switched this out with Stuck in the Middle with Reservoir Dogs
11. OOH Child - Rescue scene in Django
12. Aint No Mountain - when Bruce Willis is choosing his weapons in the pawn shop.

Why is your butt so chapped, subby? Who farking cares? If people are buying it, more power to them.

Besides, it's helping the Joan Jett/Lita Ford/Cherie Currie thing. All of those girls have been playing shows, releasing music and otherwise reminding us how cool a Runaways tour could be.

God, I kinda miss those commercials, along with the K-Tel ones. They were stupid as hell at the time, but now they bring back a certain nostalgia.

Quentin already used Hooked on a feeling in Reservoir Dogs. Incidentally, I got nearly all these songs last year when Amazon put out some Sounds of the 70s album for like 3 bucks. The rest were on soundtracks from movies that came out at least 15 years ago.

Seriously, go read some of the opinions of middle-aged 1960s writers on the Beatles.
It's pretty amazing.

Maybe, but there's a ton of bands that were popular at the same time as the Beatles that no one listens to today. My mom remembers being a big fan of the Dick Clark Five. I doubt 90% of the people who know who Dick Clark is have the foggiest idea he was once a pop star.

Never understood mix tapes or fixed playlists, nowadays. How can you not get sick of those songs? I know from experience I'm in the minority here, but damn I get quickly tired of hearing the same songs over and over.

Especially since it  was called the Dave Clark 5.

Dick Clark was never a pop star.

I'm sure I'm stepping on what you had intended to be a side-splitting joke, but they were the

DAVE Clark Five.

Or: the first band to knock the Beatles' I Want To Hold Your Hand off of the top of the U.S. charts.

I think the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks of reused songs. And the opening of Pulp fiction using Miserlou/Jungle Boogie is just as good as Guardians of the Galaxy using Redbone's "Come and Get your Love".

Eep! Make that the U.K. charts. It only reached #6 on the U.S. charts.

Also, GotG is the best film I've seen with a full audience in years. I've seen it twice. It flat out PLAYS. If you haven't, don't wait for cable. See it in theaters. Sincerely can't wait for the sequel.

/and as penance for my sins against what's perceived as "quality" cinema, I'll see Cronenberg's new one thrice.

Tarantino didn't direct From Dusk til Dawn, Rodriguez did. Your point is still valid.

"Glad All Over" never reached #1, and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was knocked out of the top spot by "She Loves You", which was replaced by "Can't Buy Me Love". The Beatles were finally succeeded at the top of the singles chart by Louis Armstrong.

My high school music teacher said the same thing (in the 70s).  I pointed out that the vast majority of classical music has been forgotten.  Only the cream remains, Beethoven, Mozart, etc.
