You realize that isn’t a song, but an album. Not only that, but its an album about a rock star who slowly goes insane and withdraws from the world… do you really want that to be your soundtrack? :stuck_out_tongue:

You probably mean “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. II,” which is the “We don’t need no education” one. Its also the worst cut off the album, IMO.

Okay, here is my soundtrack:

  1. “War Pigs” - Black Sabbath
  2. “Delete Yourself” - Atari Teenage Riot
  3. “Just” - Radiohead
  4. “Asphyxiate” - Earth Crisis
  5. “Three Libras” - A Perfect Circle
  6. “Peace Sells” - Megadeth
  7. “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” - The Smiths
  8. “Boys Don’t Cry” - The Cure
  9. “How Soon Is Now?” - The Smiths
  10. “The Day I Tried to Live” - Soundgarden
  11. “Embryodead” - :WUMPSCUT:
  12. “Unhappy Birthday” - The Smiths
  13. “I Don’t Believe in Love” - Queensryche
  14. “Master of Puppets” - Metallica
  15. “Ace of Spades” - Motorhead
  16. “Die With Your Boots On” - Iron Maiden
  17. “Disposable Heroes” - Metallica
  18. “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” - The Darkness
  19. “Exit Music (For a Film)” - Radiohead
  20. “Lovesong” - The Cure

(I’m on track 20 right now <_<)

And I can give a personal reason for each track and which part of my life it belongs to, but I won’t. :stuck_out_tongue:

REAL LATE EDIT: Don’t diss Creedance Clearwater Revival! I’d add “Fortunate Son” in here, but twenty tracks is MORE than enough (I can’t believe I typed “diss”).

“I hate myself and want to die” by Nirvana.

Over and over and over again, until everyone gets so sick of it they walk out of the film and demand their money back.


Actually, I’d like to think if there were a movie about me, it’d be because I was important enough to justify original songs being created for the soundtrack. But that’s contrary to the spirit of this thread (which is why I couldn’t resist typing it, I suppose. :stuck_out_tongue: )


I’d have to think about this one for a while longer. It really would depend on what strange-ass scenes were put in the film.

The “experimentation” scene where everyone gets high except “me” because he doesn’t know how to smoke a pipe right, for example. I’m thinking “Champagne Supernova” by Oasis or perhaps “Ghost Town” by The Specials. Maybe “Sweet Leaf” by Black Sabbath. One of those.

The Main Nemesis/Villian would, of course, would always be accompanied by “Let The Eagles Soar” written by John Ashcroft and performed either by him or by Pat Boone, every time he showed up.

“At My Job” by the Dead Kennedys when “me” is describing in flashback form his time at work.

I’m sure there’d be room for “Boys Don’t Cry” and “A Night Like This” by The Cure, “Still Ill” “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” and “Unloveable” by The Smiths, too.

“Go 'n Breakdown” by Suicidal Tendencies when “me” has a daydream about snapping at work and going off on all the idiot customers who ruin his day, and causes major people and property damage, Incredible Hulk style.

“Chicks Dig Jerks” by Bill Hicks, over a montage of every girl that “me” doesn’t get with because they’re seeing someone else, and even though they turn to “me” for a shoulder to cry on when the other guy’s a dick, they go back inevitably to the dick anyway. Yeah. Could also use “Got My Mojo Workin’ [but it don’t work on you]” by Muddy Waters.

One love interest, probably the main one, would be accompanied by one of the Gretchen/Margaret themes either from Liszt’s “Totentanz” or Berlioz’s “Damnation of Faust”. You know, to put her up on a pedestal and classiness, and to suggest to the more intelligent moviegoers that “me” is going to fall apart and end up in the shitter trying to chase after this girl in vain. :stuck_out_tongue:

Doesn’t have much to do with the plot overall, but I’d like to have one scene where one character is in a pool hall, playing average pool, until he or someone else requests “Bad To The Bone” by George Thurogood on the pool hall jukebox and. of course, for the duration of the song the character plays brilliant hustler-grade pool, sinking ball after ball, nailing every trick shot, and getting away with all sorts of cool posing and mugging for the gathering audience.

Musical Number: when “me” finally quits his job, he starts singing “Take This Job and Shove It” punk style, a backing band appears out of nowhere to mime along to the Dead Kennedys cover of said song.

“The Man in Black” by Johnny Cash would work its way in there too, somehow. Maybe in the opening credits.

“Straight To Hell” and “The Equaliser” by The Clash.

“Crippled Inside” by John Lennon.

When “me” joins a band, their one hit is a cover of “This Party Sucks” by the Slickee Boys.

“Back To The Old House” by The Smiths during the climax, when “me” becomes fairly successful in what’s a bittersweet semi-happy ending: the big dream doesn’t pan out, but he gets #3 or #4 on the “dream careers” list. “He” doesn’t get the girl he’s been fixating on for half the film, though, and “he” recognizes a big part of it is due to his chosen career. Part of becoming who he wants to be included not getting involved with her. Something like that.

Of course, since I’m directing, this is just a fake happy ending. Two minutes later, “He” is in the middle of a traditional voice-over type ending scene where he sums things up and realizes that, all in all, he has it pretty good. In the middle of that, out of absolutely nowhere, he is just simply, arbitrarily fatally shot by some guy, a total stranger “he” has never known (and vice versa) fleeing the scene of a robbery. Yep. “Me” dies at the end.

Immediate, silent, abrupt end. Credits roll. Go home. Thank you for your $8.

Then, just for sheer pretentiousness and ego-stroking, first “One Love” by Bob Marley, and second “Imagine” by John Lennon get played over the ending credits.

I’d want my own original score.

Something by John Williams.

Hmm… an original score wouldn’t be a bad idea, either. I’d have Danny Elfman do it. :slight_smile:

Interesting question… I guess it’d have to be different tunes representing the different stages of my life.

my infancy- “help” by the Beatles

when I was at primary school- “Princes of the Universe” by Queen

when I was at secondary school- “Heroes” by David Bowie

when pissed- “Bohemian Rhapsody” in my own inimitable style :wink:

November-December 2001- “We are the Champions” by Queen :-p

I would think of more but I’m pretty unwell at the moment and it’s probably best I don’t delve too deeply :wink:

  1. Albuqurque- Weird Al
  2. Satan wants your anus- original song by me.

It’s a parody of the christian song thing called “Jesus Loves me”
Goes something and only a little something like this
“Jesus loves me this I know, Satan is a dirty ho, this next part sounds sick alas, Satan takes it in the ass.” aaaand thats just the first verse :stuck_out_tongue:

An original score, involving a full orchestra composed entirely of harmonicas.

  4. Adema - Immortal
  5. Cold - Give

The one that comes to mind at the moment would be “Sick Cycle Carousel” by Lifehouse.

I’ll have to edit this and add some more as soon as I get home from work/school. (since it’s one after the other. grumbles)

Hmm… I would want mine done by Green Day. If they could do it. If not then I would have to go with Jimmy Eat World or something similar to them.

Then it’s just a lot of harmonicas, and not an orchestra :stuck_out_tongue:

No, it’s an orchestra.

Orchestra (n):

  1. Music.
    a. A large group of musicians who play together on various instruments, usually including strings, woodwinds, brass instruments, and percussion instruments.
    b. The instruments played by such a group.

  2. The area in a theater or concert hall where the musicians sit, immediately in front of and below the stage.

  3. a. The front section of seats nearest the stage in a theater.
    b. The entire main floor of a theater.

  4. A semicircular space in front of the stage used by the chorus in ancient Greek theaters.

I’m afraid the point goes to Cless. :stuck_out_tongue:
