Tune In Tuesday: More 90s Jams

August 23, 2011

More 90s you say?

I’m good with that.

Let’s keep last week’s theme up and turn to the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann’s FREAKING FANTASTIC 1996 film version of Romeo + Juliet. People, this soundtrack holds up.

First and foremost, it features Radiohead’s “Talk Show Host” as Romeo’s theme throughout the film. As much as Radiohead probably wouldn’t like this, this incredibly gorgeous, haunting song was my introduction to their music.

But Radiohead wasn’t the only crazy awesome band featured on this soundtrack. There’s also this darkly catchy tune by Garbage. 

And now for something a little less moody just plain fun: The Cardigan’s “Lovefool,” which played on the radio all the dang time and annoyed the hell out of my mom, and is still awesome.

Aaaand now that I’ve stopped dancing, I desperately want to watch this movie. If you’ve never seen it, you should definitely look into it picking it up or Netflixing it or straight up buying it. Because it is and AWESOME film. And the music is AWESOME. And Paul Rudd is in it. (As well as, you know, pre-Titanic Leonardo DiCaprio.)
