For episode 29 I make use of the theme of film to put some order to the chaos of the tracklisting. Initially it was titled movies but that wasn’t pretentious enough so I went with film. I could’ve gone even further and called it cinema but decided against it at the last. Mostly because it’d be nice to able to look at myself in the mirror without an unacceptable amount of self-loathing.
All joking aside, films, movies, flicks, cinema, etc is a wonderfully rich vein to mine but as always it’s not really a case of trying to fit the music to the theme - it was a case of finding a framework to pull these records together within. That’s the way the themes for episodes always work: I have all this great music but just need a way to whittle a long list down to a short list of 30ish tunes before then getting them into something that resembles an episode. This one has been bubbling away for a while. The first stab I had at it was, frankly, an absolute pig so I put it down, did something else for a few months until the shame subsided then had another go.
It’s not all music from films - some of the links are a little more obtuse - but in my humble opinion the music is truly exceptional and I’m really pleased how this one turned out in the end. Hope you like it too.
Tracklisting w/ links to purchase, if I can find them (these are directly related to the artists where possible but not always). Also, I take no responsibility for the links. Just trying to help…
