Do you know the sound of thunder?

« on: March 14, 2019, 04:11:48 PM »

Doing the discipline of steel today and stumbled upon the soundtrack from THE CROW.  Couple of things hit me at once - one, the tunes remain very good, a great cross section of music at the time, much as HEAVY METAL's soundtrack is.

The other thing that hit me was just how far removed from that style of music we are.  In fact, I'd guess it'd be more likely to hear a sound from HEAVY METAL on a commercial or new movie then anything from THE CROW.

Take a listen and see what you think....

Yeah, that soundtrack is PERFECT. Everyone I knew owned this cd. It's always been on my phone, iPod or listening tech of choice. I even own it on vinyl.

This article has some cool trivia about the soundtrack, for example...

Machines of Loving Grace read the screenplay of The Crow before writing "Golgotha Tenement Blues" and created the song to fit the film
Like the Cure, Arizona-based industrial-rock band Machines of Loving Grace also composed an original song specifically for the soundtrack and they got a serious leg up on the undertaking. "We were very lucky in the sense that we were involved with that project very early on," keyboardist/programmer Mike Fisher said in a 1996 interview. "I think we were actually the first band approached to be on that soundtrack, and we were familiar with the director and the comic, and we actually got to see the screenplay a year before the thing was even filmed, so we had a pretty good sense going into it what the film was going to be like. We tried to sort of match the mood." As fans of the band know, "Golgotha Tenement Blues" doesn't sound like any of their other songs; according to Fisher, this is why.


The Cure's "Burn" was recorded by just the band's frontman Robert Smith and drummer Boris Williams
As the story goes, the Cure were originally going to contribute their devastating Pornography cut "The Hanging Garden" to The Crow soundtrack since the lyrics to the song had been appeared in the original comic book, but Robert Smith liked the comic so much that he opted to write and record an original song instead. He did so quickly: The Cure's lineup was in flux at the time, so Smith and drummer Boris Williams turned around their contribution, "Burn," on their own over the course of just two days, as Smith told Radio 104.5 in 2008. "I had the idea, and we just recorded it, me and him, in the studio," the singer says. Interesting, the song was also the last thing that Smith and Williams ever put on wax together; the drummer split shortly thereafter.


A magical masterpiece.

Thanks for sharing this jdv, I know what I'm watching later tonight.
