Good Day Sunshine
I went to see the new Danny Boyle movie Sunshine at the weekend. And I rather enjoyed it actually. Ticked all the appropriate Sci-Fi boxes and still had enough in the tank for some surprises late on. One disappointment was the lack of a decent poptastic soundtrack (a la Trainspotting, The Beach, A Life Less Ordinary) in favour of a more atmospheric vibe. But a fine opportunity for me to create my own custom made soundtrack! Make a CDR, wait for the DVD, and then create an audio-visual feast not seen since some stoned person decided that Dark Side Of The Moon synced up with The Wizard Of Oz.
The Walker Brothers - 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Any More'
The Pink Floyd - 'Set Controls For The Heart Of The Sun'
Len - 'Steal My Sunshine'
Symposium - 'Drink The Sunshine'
Orbital - 'The Girl With The Sun In Her Head'
The Flaming Lips - 'It Overtakes Me, The Stars Are So Big, I Am So Small... Do I Stand A Chance?'
Ash - 'Starcrossed'
Boy Meets World - 'Waiting For A Star To Fall'
Yes - 'Heart Of The Sunrise'
Rilo Kiley - 'Hail To Whatever You Found In The Sunlight That Surrounds You'
Nirvana - 'Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam'
M83 - 'Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun'
Zoe - 'Sunshine On A Rainy Day'
Pulp - 'Sunrise'
Morecambe And Wise - 'Bring Me Sunshine'
There, that's much better, isn't it? Not a bad collection of songs either, with a healthy dose of Prog and Techno for all those majestic CGI flybys.
Please do chip in with your own selections, although anyone who even thinks of adding Dario G's 'Sunchyme' may find their access to this site (and indeed the rest of the internet) blocked. Forever.
