Steve Reich In The Afternoon 15

A Tenuous Collection Of Film Music

A decades spanning collection of random soundtrack music that kind of goes together. All a bit melancholy too, there’s a theme emerging there… thanks Sean T for this excellent playlist.

Gwrando/listen – Youtube , Spotify

Roy Budd – Main Theme – Carter Takes A Train (Get Carter soundtrack)
Impossibly cool, it even features train noises. The perfect soundtrack track.

Tom Waits – Jockey Full Of Bourbon (Down by Law soundtrack)
Fantastically louche. Nothing good will ever come of this.

John Barry – Midnight Cowboy (Midnight Cowboy soundtrack)
If this doesn’t make you yearn for something you should check to see if your heart’s still in your chest.

Ennio Morricone – Theme From ‘A Fistful of Dollars’
It should be overwrought melodrama with a sprinkling of parmesan, but instead it forces my emotions through a mangle and pushes me to the brink of tears. Every bloody time. 

Iggy Pop – Night Clubbing (Trainspotting soundtrack)
Sleazy but not sleazy, sinister but not sinister. Brings the emotional tone back down to earth and drives it to a night club in some brutalist, industrial warehouse.
