Image for Ten film soundtracks better than The Great Gatsby

Earlier today director Baz Luhrmann and executive producer Jay-Z released the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby and, on paper at least, it seems like a winner. Not only does it feature the likes of Florence and The MachineThe xxSia and Gotye, it’s got new material from Lana Del Rey and a host of covers: Beyonce andAndre 3000 doing Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back In Black’, Brian Ferry doing ‘Crazy in Love’ and Jack White’s take on U2’s ‘Love Is Blindness’ (which first appeared on a 2011 tribute album). But for The Great Gatsby to really cut through, it has to be more than just a compilation. Here are 10 soundtracks that not only sound good as a party playlist, but also conjure pivotal moments in their respective films. Listen to complete soundtracks here: http://bit.ly/Xurm0M

Trainspotting (1996)

Regarded as one of the best British films of the past 20 years Trainspotting, director Danny Boyle, used an A-list cast of musical talent to give the film that extra bit of punch (like it actually needed more!). Featuring tracks from David BowieLou ReedIggy Pop and Underworld, the CD release of the soundtrack was so successful they put out another disk – and it was just as good.

Soundtrack highlight: A three-way tie: the energetic intro scene featuring ‘Lust For Life’, Ewan McGregor OD’ing to ‘Perfect Day’ and Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’ closing out the film.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

We all know Quentin Tarantino is the king of pop culture references, edgy dialogue and gore, but his impossibly good taste in music often gets overlooked. Featuring songs from Al Green (‘Let’s Stay Together’), Kool and the Gang (‘Jungle Boogie’) and Dusty Springfield (‘Son Of A Preacher Man’), not to mention Urge Overkill’s inspired cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon’, _Pulp Fiction_’s soundtrack is as effortlessly cool as the film itself.

Soundtrack highlight: John Travolta and Uma Thurman dancing to Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’.

The Social Network (2010)

Who thought Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails would actually win an Oscar? But he deserves it for this brooding and ambient work – co-composed with Atticus Ross – that complemented the uneasy pace and tone of the film. The real genius of their score (and the script by Aaron Sorkin) is that it elevated a boring story about a bunch of geeks starting a website into a gripping film.

Soundtrack highlight: If you can pick a highlight out of a minimalist piano score, you’re doing one better than us.

Drive (2011)

The soundtrack to 2011’s Drive heavily featured Cliff Martinez – former guitarist for the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Captain Beefheart – who has now turned his attention to composing scores. His pulsating electro-pop aesthetic translated perfectly to the stretches of the film where heartthrob Ryan Gosling was on the road, escalating in intensity where the scene needed it to. The soundtrack also features a few great songs from the likes of Kavinsky, Chromatics and Desire, particularly ‘Under Your Spell’.

Soundtrack highlight: The infamous elevator scene featuring Brian Eno’s ambient ‘An Ending (Ascent)’.

Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Between Radiohead’s ‘Exit Music’, Butthole Surfers’ ‘Whatever (I Had a Dream)’ and Everclear’s ‘Local God’ nothing said “mid-’90s” quite like this soundtrack. Plus who would’ve thought that Garbage’s ‘#1 Crush’ could ever appear in a story written by Shakespeare? Or ‘Lovefool’ by The Cardigans, which became a hit single thanks to the film.

Soundtrack highlight: For the romantics: Des’ree’s ‘I’m Kissing You’ in the “fishtank scene”.

Judgement Night (1993)

The beginning of rap-rock for (better or worse), with every song on the soundtrack coupling a rock act with a hip-hop artist. There was the improbable Teenage Fanclub and De La Soul collaboration ‘Fallin’, Faith No Moreteaming up with Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. for ‘Another Body Murdered’, Helmet and House of Pain doing ‘Just Another Victim’ (yes, they had songs other than ‘Jump Around’). The film itself is pretty unmemorable – it starred Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr and Denis Leary as a bunch of mates who end up in the wrong part of town – but the soundtrack will stand the test of time.

Soundtrack highlight: The title track featuring Biohazard and Onyx nails the film’s gritty urban vibe.

Almost Famous (2000)

Like Tarantino, Cameron Crowe is another director that knows just when to drop the perfect song at the perfect time in one of his films (see: the “boombox scene” in Say Anything, or Tom Cruise belting out ‘Free Falling’ in Jerry Maguire). Almost Famous, which tells the (somewhat embellished) story of his early years as a Rolling Stone contributor, is like a nostalgia trip back into Crowe’s past – from The Beach Boys to Simon & Garfunkel, Yes to The Who. Even the songs by the film’s fictitious band Stillwater sound like they were writing four decades ago.

Soundtrack highlight: An entire tour bus belting out Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’.

Singles (1992)

Another Cameron Crowe special. A movie about six people looking for love in Seattle, Singles helped spread the city’s nascent grunge scene to a national audience before it exploded into the mainstream via Nirvana. The film features some of the scene’s biggest names (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Mudhoney and Soundgarden), a Chris Cornell solo track recorded on a four-track in his cupboard and some of Paul Westerberg’s better post-Replacements output (‘Waiting For Somebody’, ‘Dyslexic Heart’). Though uncredited, there’s a snippet of Jane’s Addiction’s ‘Three Days’ when Bridget Fonda opens a fridge.

Soundtrack highlight: The first airing of Soundgarden’s Spoonman two years before its release.

Friday (1995)

Starring Chris Tucker and Ice Cube, stoner comedy Friday was released just as the West Coast hip-hop movement was hitting its peak. As a result the film is soundtracked by California’s finest, with contributions from Cypress HillDr DreMack 10 and Cube himself, providing its title track. Amid all the rap was the inclusion of some smoother jams from the likes of Rick James and Bootsy Collins.

Soundtrack highlight: Hands down: Ice Cube and Chris Tucker rolling a fat one to the smooth stylings of Rick James’ ‘Mary Jane’.

Forrest Gump (1994)

An epic film with a suitably epic soundtrack. Thirty-two tracks with not one original song (bar the opening suite) among them, Forrest Gump’s score featured all the ‘60 to ‘70s big guns: Aretha FranklinCreedence Clearwater RevivalThe Beach BoysElvis. Much like the film itself, the list just goes on, and on, and on.

Soundtrack highlight: Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Fortunate Son’ as Forrest lands in Vietnam.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are in the midst of slowly releasing eighteen tracks recorded while on the road promoting their most recent album I’m With You.

Beginning last August, the band scheduled a series of nine 7″ vinyl singles roll out over a six-month period with all tracks being available a digital package this April. Currently on the 6th release, the process of getting the songs to the fans has taken longer than expected reports NME.

LP3’s big reveal comes in the ‘New York Times’ classifieds

Modern Vampires of the City!

Ever mysterious New York preppy-rockers Vampire Weekend at last revealed the name of their third album via a blink-and-you-missed-it ad in the New York Times classifieds section. Early Monday morning (February 4), the band tweeted “NYT classifieds…” and Pitchfork spotted the referred-to ad, which reads:

MODERN
VAMPIRES
OF THE
CITY
May 7, 2013

The date, of course, is when the album is released in the U.S. on XL Recordings. The band hinted at the album’s title, one of the LP’s last remaining unknowns, with a GIF posted to VW’s official Tumblr on Friday. The image spelled out the first letter of each word, MVOTC, and we leveled some guesses that were, in the end, not too far off the mark.

Vampire Weekend are scheduled to perform at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas, this March, and then at Coachella in April. A full slate of tour dates plus the album’s track list is below.

Listen/Watch: New Single From Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace:

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich just dropped by Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, where they premiered the new single from the Atoms for Peace project, “Judge Jury and Executioner”. It’s off their album Amok, which is out February 25 in the UK and February 26 in the U.S. via XL Recordings.

Atoms for Peace also features the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Flea, Joey Waronker, and percussionist Mauro Refosco. Talking with Lowe, Yorke and Godrich said that they don’t have any shows planned at the moment, but they’re considering a European tour. They hinted that members of the group will probably play Glastonbury in some capacity. But according to Yorke, the full band “won’t have got our shit together by then.”

As for that Radiohead stuff recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Studio, Yorke said it will be released eventually, “but I have to pick the kids up from school first.”

The single is available for purchase on iTunes starting at midnight UK time or offered as a free download for those who pre-order the album.

There’s also an accompanying visual for the track, with imagery by Tarik Barri– watch it below:

How many bands that have countless live albums? Extensive tour. I mean every single damn year. Except 2011 to comemmorate their 20 years in music? There’s only one band. Dave Matthews Band.

On February 7, 2012, Dave Matthews Band was announced as a headliner for the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This is the first officially announced tour date for the band in 2012. Other headliners at this event will be Jack White and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Away From The World is their seventh studio album. Their second album without LeRoi Moore. Moore died suddenly in August 2008 due to complications from an ATV accident. He was saxophonist and also founder of the the band along with David John Matthews as singer-songwriter and guitarist, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford.

Dave Matthews reunites with Steve Lilywhite. Producer of their first three albums. Under The Table And Dreaming (1994), Crash (1996), Before These Crowded Street (1998). Their most recognizable albums. Classic ones.

Lilywhite takes DMB to where they belongs. Brassy, funky and music like they used to be.

1. Broken Things

Dont you love the falsetto sound of Dave Matthews when he croons “Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you” and trailing off into violin solo from Boyd. Beauty.

2. Belly Belly

Open by brassy sound and boom suddenly it’s 90’s again. The song evokes me to Ants Marching era. You can’t get too much love. Don’t you feel it in your belly go get you some!

3. Mercy

Their first single from this album. A lil bit political and deep lyrics. But the music sound simple and catchy. Simple is good when it comes to this band.

4. Gaucho

The guitar work reminiscent me to their first album. A kids choir is also singing the chorus line with Dave “We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things”  in the end finish by nice saxophone solo.

5.  Sweet

A simple and short song. Dave only sing with his ukulele before the group comes in with solid touches at the end.

6. The Riff

My favorite song in this album. Love the lyrics. “If you stay with me that don’t mean we gotta stay the same.. If you stay with me baby you and me will change the game… You stay with me I’ll follow you and we can start again.”

7. Belly Full

I don’t know why but this song reminds me to Eddie Vedder with his solo album. If the songs last a little bit longer this song can be memorable one.

8. If Only

Simple lost love song. A boy who wants his girl back. He just can’t forget her. He loves her so much. What more can you ask?

9. Rooftop

 Another lost love song. Now he tries harder. Standing on the rooftop and screams “I want you to tell me that you want me too”. It’s ok to be honest with yourself. Just scream your heart out.

10. Snow Outside

The vocal melody is one of the key in this song. It’s a jamming song. Spontaneous. But still Carter Beauford, the drummer, has always been the metronomic glue for the band. Well it’s not a surprise DMB is a live band.

11. Drunken Soldier

Duration 09:45. Magnum Opus from this album. Probably song of the year 2012. I don’t know how to label this song. It’s folk. It’s a rock. It’s a progressive. Many twist. Lyrically strong. Dave sings his heart out. It’s Dave Matthews Band at its best.  Give yourself a few spin you won’t regret it. It’s a promise.
