Two Wounded Birds - Top 5 film soundtracks
- Jun 18, 2012
It’s been a busy few weeks for Two Wounded Birds, with the release of their self-titled debut album accompanied with a string of live shows. Nevertheless, lead singer Johnny Danger had time to sit down and write a guest blog for Red Room on his top five film soundtracks…
I love all of Quentin's work, but this is the one I love the best. The songs, the attitude, the way it's shot, it's all perfect. The music is equally as important as what's happening on the screen, and I think few films get that marriage right. One of the best films and soundtracks of all time.
2. La Bamba
It's this great story that's almost told too quickly, but I think the reason why this has so much impact is when Valens dies and Santo and Johnny's Sleepwalk kicks in and his brother screams at the end, it absolutely breaks your heart.
3. Snow White
There's something magical about early Disney films that was never recaptured I think. The big orchestration and old timey sounding music along with some of those made up worlds and lands give me hope that there are other dimensions somewhere infinitely more happy and magical than this one.
4. Forrest Gump
This film gets me every time I see it, as soon as Jenny dies, that's it. Like with Pulp Fiction, the music is as important to this as the scene on screen. Having Creedence for the Vietnam scenes and the Byrds for the Washington ones feel great.
5. Cry Baby
Johnny Depp looks great in this film, backed up by some great songs and great characters. Everyone loves the rebel.
