That OHMSS theme redux is still sexily exciting.

David Arnold's album Shaken and Stirred is pretty awesome all around!

Christopher said...

The wife has a copy somewhere - I'll dig it out. Off the top of my head and I can only remember this and McAlmont doing Diamonds are Forever.

Also - thanks for the Monty Norman track on the last Dharmalars podcast, most amusing.

one of these days Monty Norman is gonna realize that he needs to let it go. He has the credit for "writing" the james bond theme. He just needs to let it go.

Hey Folks,
I am gonna post the show on Monday. Sorry about that, but i promise that it wont be another long delay like the last break.

Not the best of the Bond Series but the score makes up for it

Mr. Chris said...

Ralph, hope you don't mind me putting this here, but I couldn't think of a crowd who'd appreciate it any more than the people who come here.

Angelo Badalamenti talks about the Lynchian creative process, and acting.

i just recieved a bunch of Angelo Badalamenti music from a friend of mine, i will have to include him on the show.

Mr. Chris said...

I'm going through a bit of a Badlamenti resurgence, given my rewatching (after about 13 years) of all of Twin Peaks - and given that another CD (which Amazon are taking FOREVER to send) of music from the show, to accompany the excellent but very lean original soundtrack, has just come out.

I don't think I'll bother with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, though.

Black Lodge by Anthrax is an interesting collaboration, and he did some arrangement for the Pet Shop Boys song "It Couldn't Happen Here" way back in 1987 or thereabouts.

The more I read about him, the more interesting he seem.

Come back, cue the music. I just bought the Once soundtrack. And then part of the I'm Not There soundtrack, until I ran out of iTunes credit.

i received a new Mic for christmas, and Cue the Music will return in '08. i may do another Elfman show to ease back into it.
