He says, "Dude. That's not a soundtrack."
I can't just pare it down to 15-20 songs, otherwise I'll get so sick of them I can never listen to them again. Right?
Anyway, I started working on a new project. It's fun and going well so far, and I've been listening to my A Perfect Circle station on Pandora, but I've been at my 40 hour limit for a few days and anyway, I like having a dedicated iTunes playlist, so...
51 songs. That's not so bad, right? And I made a conscientious effort to put some different ones on there, not the same ol' that always inspire me.
I won't share all 51, but here's a nice run down:
- "Devils" - Say Hi to Your Mom
- "Run Away" - Sarah Jarosz
- "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" - AC/DC
- "The Devils' Feet" - Azure Ray
- "The Bad Touch" - The Bloodhound Gang
- "Hang Me Up to Dry" - Cold War Kids
- "A Siren" - Colour Revolt
- "Euro-Trash Girl" - Cracker
- "Passenger" - Deftones
- "Until I Wake Up" - Dishwalla
- "Feorah" - Downshallow
- "Hotel California" - Eagles
- "Shadowboxer" - Fiona Apple
- "Bad Boyfriend" - Garbage
- "Carry On Wayward Son" - Kansas
- "Sick Cycle Carousel" - Lifehouse
- "Waitress" - Live
- "One Man Army" - Our Lady Peace
- Rolling Stones Triumverate ("Honky Tonk Women, Sympathy for the Devil, Saint of Me")
- "The Only Living Boy in New York" - Simon & Garfunkel
- "At the Bottom" - Brand New
Eclectic. Just like my new WIP.
So whaddya think? Writing soundtracks are by default longer, or do you keep yours short?
