All Will Be Carved in Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving Teaser 

I was kind of hoping to hear John Harrison’s “Something to Tide You Over” from Creepshow in this trailer, but I guess that requires some copyrights. Eli Roth looks like he’s keeping it simple and close to the original fake trailer he created for 2007’s…

I’m Just Ken (by Ryan Gosling) 

Growing up in the 80s, I’ll admit to having had numerous bouts of breaking out into song while walking home from school and lamenting unrequited love. From Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, “I’m Just Ken” hits the mark so well here. In the theatre, the song (along…

I first found out about Max Richter through my cousin, who is a big fan of HBO’s The Leftovers. After finding “November”, used in that show, I kept an eye out. He reminded me of Michael Brook, who was responsible for “Aquamarine” on the score…

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Valentine's Day Playlist

If you ever watched She’s Having a Baby, with Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern, you’ll understand why This Woman’s Work by Kate Bush is here in the mix. It’s a sweet 80’s song. I’ll leave it here to speak for itself.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Say what you will about The Twilight Saga, but it did give us some great tunes. One of my favorites is Roslyn, by Bon Iver & St. Vincent. I’ll admit to not really knowing many of the lines to this one (and…

Moments in Love – by The Art of Noise

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series Valentine's Day Playlist

Goodness, where to start with Moments in Love. To understand this, you have to be aware of something in the Eighties and Nineties called The Quiet Storm. On Thursdays or Friday nights, around 10pm or so, popular radio stations would play slow jams or love…
