Top 5 Tuesday – The Movie was Great, but OH that Soundtrack!!

Happy post Simcoe Day Canada!

To celebrate the day off on Monday, I took some special me time and watched one of my absolute favourite movies of all time while snacking on chocolate chips, drinking peppermint tea, and trying to determine if I was hungover or if I had just danced too hard the night prior (it was dancing, so much hair shaking, and jumping, and, yes, high kicks, the running man, and a re-enactment of Flash Dance). Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is inspired by some of my favourite film soundtracks.

Velvet Goldmine  – Baby’s on Fire

A movie inspired by the love affair between Iggy Pop and David Bowie, but jam packed with conspiracy theories, alien references, and gratuitous everything. The whole soundtrack is filled with original scores and every song, every single one, is a glam rock dream.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch – Wig in a Box

Another original score, another cult classic. This is one of my go-to time to get dolled up songs.

Royal Tenenbaums – These Days by Nico

Picking just one song from just one Wes Anderson film was nearly impossible. Everything the man touches is gold, GOLD I say.

Pulp Fiction – Girl, You’ll be a Woman Soon by Urge Overkill

Iconic. No further explanation required.

Once – Falling Slowly

An original soundtrack full of these two beautiful voices singing through heartbreak and love. So many feelings.
