With the sad death of Aretha Franklin I thought we should have a music in films thread. A tribute to the Queen of Soul. The best tune in a fillum was obviously Aretha singing Respect Think (being a dozy twunt I said Respect when as @Don Diaz rightly says it was Think, what a silly cunt I are being) in the Blues Brothers, winner, no contest needed. What a fantastic voice that lady had, I am not a big fan of soul music, but fucking blimey she was great.

There have been other motion picture talkies wot have also had some cracking tunes in them. I will start with my top 3, not necessarily my favourite tunes but tunes that perfectly done the business in the fillum. I can list loads as usual, but I will show self restraint and let you blokes and ladies (are you still here?) list their faves.

1 R Think espect, Aretha Franklin, Blues Brothers
2 Tubular Bells, Mike Oldfield, The Exorcist*
3 Stuck In The Middle With You Stealers Wheel, Reservoir Dogs**

* Fuck that scared the fucking doodahs out of me, to this day I have never been able to watch the whole Exorcist film and listening to the 'Bells' album gives me the shivers.
** Fucking blimey, what the actual fuck? Chilling or what! Fuck!

Most tarantino films have excellent soundtracks,he takes the uncoolest songs you would never listen to,injects them into the script and your hooked on them.

Also TV series have followed this,blacklist has some good tunes,loved peaky blinders even more because of the music,the mash up of film&music when done well lifts both mediums.

I mean this is a pretty naff cheesy pop song,yet its part in the film makes it somewhat much cooler.

Oh yes, Red Right Hand, Nick Cave and many other versions in the Blinders worked really well. Another oldie was Harry's game, that Clannad doodah was the business.

Eeerrm just a couple of things....I think the song in Blues Brothers was 'Think' .......still excellent and I'm wondering why you've gone all Geordie with 'fillum' or has Mrs D taken over this account??!

Current fave- 'Never can tell' by Chuck Berry in Pulp Fiction. Travolta and Uma, genius. Also brilliant the Jaws music, and Shake your tail feather from Blues brothers (This piano's got no action left in it)

Ramin Djawadi done some great tunes for telly and movies. Game of Thrones, Westwolrd, Pacific Rim and loads of others. He could have his own thread, fucking epic music!

Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.

"I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyria. I am the dragon’s daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming"


"Dracarys! Let them Burn"

Course it was! I was listening to Respect and my brain got twisted up. I'll edit the OP cos it's bollocks, but the point still stands that this was the best song in a movie ever, I just fucked up the name - doh!

Fillum? Yeah I am boycotting the USA so I try not to use their fucked up words or buy their stuff or go there, so I will use the good old English word for Moving Picture, which they shorten to that awful word they use, and that is fillum. There are many other countries available to boycott if you don't want to boycott the USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia are good choices for beginners. Wales and France go without saying of course.

I've just been looking through the Blues brothers tunes, blimey there were some good 'uns! I played in a few places like this one back in the 70s, those places also went for 'both types' of music, not country and western but heavy and metal!

Driver had some cool choons with Ryan Gosling, as did baby driver. Although I downloaded both albums and they arent as good. Just cool songs that fit the films so well.

I like this one from Kill Bill, who'd a thunk this was the same tune the Animals did when I was alive?


Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, Santa Esmerelda

From Wikipedia:
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" is a song written by Bennie Benjamin, Gloria Caldwell and Sol Marcus for the jazz singer and pianist Nina Simone, who first recorded it in 1964. "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" has been covered by many artists, most notably by The Animals, whose blues rock version of the song became a transatlantic hit in 1965. A 1977 four-on-the-floor disco rearrangement by disco group Santa Esmeralda was also a hit.
