I was going to do another ‘current playlist’ post, but I realised that the majority of the tracks would be from films. Hence, this post will be specifically dedicated to songs I have discovered via movies!
God Help The Girl– A beautiful movie, with an even more beautiful soundtrack! My favourite ones are:
- Perfection As A Hipster
- Musician, Please Take Heed
- I’ll Have To Dance With Cassie
- Come Monday Night
- God Help The Girl
Empire Records– This movie is probably one of my all time favourites, and there are also some gems in the soundtrack, such as…
- Coyote Shivers- Sugarhigh
- The Martinis- Free
- The Ape Hangers- I Don’t Want To Live Today
- The Innocence Mission- Bright As Yellow
The Village– The soundtrack is filled with beautiful violin music, particularly these two songs:
- What Are You Asking Me?
- The Gravel Road
How I Live Now– two of these tracks are on my previous post, but I thought I should include them. They weren’t written specifically for the movie (obviously not the Nick Drake one, anyway) but that is how I discovered them and since then they have become some of my all time favourites.
- Amanda Palmer- Do It With A Rockstar
- Daughter- Home
- Which Will- Nick Drake
