Boom, Like That

Dead Man (Vapor, 1996) is the soundtrack to the 1995 Jim Jarmusch western-themed film of the same name starring Johnny Depp as William Blake and Gary Farmer as Nobody, a strong and opinionated Native American who was forcibly raised by whites and later given the mocking name "He Who Talks Loud, Saying Nothing" or Xebeche by fellow natives. Neil Young recorded the soundtrack by improvising (mostly on his electric guitar, with some acoustic guitar, piano and organ) as he watched the newly edited film alone in a recording studio. The soundtrack album consists of seven instrumental tracks by Young, with dialog excerpts from the film and Johnny Depp reading the poetry of William Blake interspersed between the music. "Why Does Thou Hide Thyself, Clouds..." contains a version of a part of William Blake's poem "To Nobodaddy", while "Do You Know How to Use This Weapon?" contains a reading of part of "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell". Set in the American West and shot entirely in black-and-white, the film has been hailed as one of the few films made by a Caucasian that presents an authentic Native American culture and character. Although the film is set in the 19th century, Jarmusch included a number of references to 20th century American culture. Iggy Pop is featured in the cast as Salvatore "Sally" Jenko, a cross-dressing, Bible-reading fur trader at a campsite. Benmont Tench, the man at the campsite played by Jared Harris, is named after Benmont Tench, keyboardist for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The marshals chasing Blake are named Lee Hazlewood and Marvin Throne-berry, after Lee Hazlewood and Marv Throneberry. Nobody's name ("He Who Talks Loud, Saying Nothing") is a reference to the James Brown song "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing".

Shake Everything You Got

"Planet Of Sound" (4AD, 1991) is a song by the American alternative rock band Pixies, from their album Trompe le Monde. The song describes an Extra Terrestrial's search for the origin of Rock music he has received. In every planet he goes to, he is told that "This ain't the planet of sound". The Pixies' music was heavily influenced by punk and surf rock, and while highly melodic, was capable of being tremendously abrasive at the same time. Black Francis was the band's primary songwriter and singer and had a distinctly desperate, yowling delivery. He typically wrote cryptic songs about offbeat subjects, such as UFOs and surrealism. References to mental instability, violent Biblical imagery, physical injury, and incest feature in many of the band's songs. Top/ "Start Me Up" (Rolling Stones/Virgin, 1981) is a classic hit single by the Rolling Stones featured on the album Tattoo You. The song opens with what has since become a trademark riff for Keith Richards.

Signal Your Intention

Elektra/Atlantic Records released a True Blood soundtrack on May 19, 2009. True Blood is an American television drama series created and produced by Alan Ball. It is based on the Sookie Stackhouse book series (known as The Southern Vampire Mysteries) by Charlaine Harris. The show is broadcast on the premium cable network HBO in the United States. True Blood details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small northern Louisiana town. The series centers on Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Gary Calamar, the music supervisor for the series, said his goal for the soundtrack to the show that is to create something "swampy, bluesy and spooky" and to feature local Louisiana musicians. The main theme song is "Bad Things" by country music artist Jace Everett, from his 2005 self-titled debut. True Blood has reportedly become HBO's most popular series since The Sopranos and Sex and the City. A minute-long promotional video advertising season two, which featured Bob Dylan's "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'," was released via Entertainment Tonight in early May 2009. American writer, director, actor and producer Alan E. Ball is noted for writing American Beauty, and creating and producing the HBO television show Six Feet Under.

Juxtapozed With U

Wings of Desire
is a 1987 film by the German director Wim Wenders. Its original German title is Der Himmel über Berlin, which can be translated as The Heaven (or Sky) over Berlin. Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry partially inspired the movie; Wenders claimed angels seemed to dwell in Rilke's poetry. The director also employed Peter Handke, who wrote much of the dialogue, the poetic narrations, and the film's recurring poem "Song of Childhood."...When the child was a child, it didn’t know that it was a child, everything was soulful, and all souls were one. Although Damiel and Cassiel are pure observers, invisible to all but children, and incapable of any physical interaction with our world, one of the angels, Damiel (Bruno Ganz), begins to fall in love with a circus trapeze artist named Marion (Solveig Dommartin), who is talented, lovely, but profoundly lonely. Marion lives alone in a trailer, dances alone to the music of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and drifts through the city. Also featured on the soundtrack along with original music by Jürgen Knieper (Nonesuch, 1990) are Crime & the City Solution, Laurie Anderson, Tuxedomoon, Sprung aus der Wolken and Minimal Compact.
