The Runaways movie is all about the music, as it should be. Here’s all 34 songs from the movie with notes on the scenes they were in. The soundtrack album to The Runaways has less than half of the songs from the movie on it and আপনি can only download it as all 15 অথবা nothing. There are great tunes on it – so that’s not as big a deal for this album as for other soundtracks – but why should আপনি have to snag all of them when just a few will do.
I was pleasantly surprised that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning could pull off Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. When I heard about the casting, I had some serious doubts. But they have chops and I think they pulled it off. In fact, some of the আরো interesting musical moments of the movie – like the parts where they were hashing out চেরি Bomb in the trailer and performing I প্রণয় Playin’ With আগুন at the roller rink combined vocals from Stewart and Fanning over the গিটার riffs, খাদ chords and drums of the original Runaways tracks.
The সঙ্গীত also just takes আপনি back (before I was listening to music) but songs which I have since grown to love. Bowie in his day, from Lady Grinning Soul to one of my পছন্দ of all time – Rebel Rebel. And আপনি are reminded just how much গাধা Iggy Pop has been kicking for decade stacked on decade. The beginning of I Wanna Be Your Dog has been sampled like crazy, but it’s so damn good that it should be sampled a million times over. It sounds like it could be cut today.
I was a bit surprised that there wasn’t আরো from the Sex Pistols অথবা the Ramones, but the story focused early and quick so maybe that would have been at the tail end of the tale.
But I’m not complaining – The Runaways includes an amazing তালিকা of 34 songs. It’s a good starter set for anyone looking to rediscover what was a major shift in the musical landscape being born. The soundtrack album has 15 of them, but I would not pass up the 19 that are missing. There is some স্বর্ণ lamé jumpsuit goodness in there.
