Attack of the Killer Soundtrack #19 - Attack of Lisa Loeb

This week we sit down with an artist who sat at #1 on the Billboard charts, went on to sign a major record deal, followed by a Grammy nomination - all of which stemmed from having her song on a movie soundtrack. That's right Lisa Loeb, seemed like the perfect guest to have on Attack of the Killer Soundtrack. So we talk with Lisa about just how her song ended up on the Reality Bites soundtrack and what it was like to have a #1 hit single before she even had a recording contract. And all the massive changes that kicked in so quickly. Plus putting a full album together after having such a successful single, as well as crossing over into acting in film... plus several other endeavors! She’s a busy woman these days, and we are glad to have her join us on this week’s episode. Plus Lisa gives us her Killer Five music picks from soundtracks over the years.

And as we keep our eyes upon the dream and go for it, someone also mentions… Jan De Bont, Gabe Kaplan, New York City, Katniss Everdeen, Brown University, just getting busy, Ethan Hawke, drinking a lot of champagne and driving in limos, being independent, putting yourself into a different character, focusing more on visual, second guessing is a loser sport, One small step for man…, Ben Stiller, walking around with headshots, Elizabeth Mitchell, 80 messages on my machine, getting it out there “for real”, Danny Elfman, one step for… me, 52nd street, when you get inspiration from outside of yourself, it’s a really fun, interesting puzzle to put together, regular music cycles, illustrated books, Stewart Copeland, live theater and the Purple Tape.

“...having music placed in soundtracks... that’s really one of the best ways to get an income from being a musician - and also one of the best ways to get your music heard.“
