Attack of the Killer Soundtrack - Episode 34

This week we assemble a massive tribute to David Bowie's contributions and crossovers into movie soundtracks. We try to steer away from the huge hits and focus more on lesser-know songs and tracks that he did exclusively for a film soundtrack. There are a lot to choose from... and we have a lot of fun in the process.


So join us as we discuss the perks of being a weird dude, as well as... the Dalai Lama's summer palace, bananas piano, Brian Eno, the fight club in him came out... and he became this weird creature, Flight of the Conchords, so basically they will throw this song in any movie, two old perverts trying to bring a young girl into a threesome, David Lynch, Seven Years in Tibet, Ricky Gervais, making furniture, the 80's was nostalgic for the 50's and wanted nothing to do with the 70's, dude from that movie with the chick with the Christ wounds..., The Great Gatsby, Toys, we're gonna have to scrap this whole project, the song....sounds like David Bowie fell down in a well and they covered it up and decided to record his vocals that way... and it's the only song on that album that's mixed that way, projecting weirdness, you can hear pig eyeballs hitting the floor, Flamingo Kid-era Matt Dillon, some of the best piano work in rock - period... is on that album, Duncan Jones, Saoirse Ronan, they couldn't take 20 minutes to write a song together... so they just cover this classic, some of the best piano work in rock - period... is on that album, he puts piles of meat on lumber and then saws in half with a saw, the gorgeous lustery hair, listening to Scott Walker's new album, I'm sure David Bowie fell out of a trunk onto the set of Easy Rider at some point, that album takes itself so F-ing seriously and that's what happens when David Bowie steals your girlfriend.


"So this is a real Rorschach test of a song..."
