  1. It's Over - Blur Pictures of You - The Cure We might as well be strangers - Keane
  2. Can't take my eyes off you - playing pool scene in the Deer Hunter - man that was cool! Blister in the sun - Gross Point Blanke People are Strange by Echo & the Bunnymen - the Lost Boys (terrible film, great Doors cover!) Where is my mind? - Pixes at the end of Fight Club
  3. Their first single was 'Somewhere only we know', which I think is their best. I was troubled by the whole lack of guitars - a proper band without guitars?!! But saw them at Glastonbury and was totally converted, bought the album and never looked back!
  4. Blimey, I'd forgotten all about Falco - that was hilarious! La Folie - The Stranglers
  5. Last night I dreamt zombies were trying to get in through the bedroom window, I was at the window trying to stop them calling my boyfriend to help. At this point they started punching me in the stomach so I naturally woke up screaming, sat up in bed and threw one of them across the room. It was of course my poor cat, she'd come over to investigate why I was making strange noises and it was her paws that were 'punching' my stomach. She's still sulking!
  6. Thank you Windy, I do my best! Is yours really Keith Richards?!! He is such a hero!
  7. What does his music sound like?
  8. Not generally one for funny movies (like funny bits in movies as opposed to slapstick) but Groundhog Day just rocks my boat! And if you want to go black and funny, Cul de Sac (Polanski) is hilarious, if in a bit of a wierd way!
  9. When I posted this reply I was very new to the boards and just listed a few of my favourites. But I now have a better understanding of what the majority of posters here like! Just wanted to let you know I've also seen the following (I'm trying to make friends!): Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Black Crows, David Bowie, the Cult, Motorhead... ... well, there is some proper rock there anyway!
  10. That list is a little out of my tiny sphere of listening (!), but I love the Cure - listen to 'Standing on a Beach', it's a compilation of all their early singles and is fantastic - some of my favourite songs ever. Their best album is Pornography. As for U2, go for their early stuff like Boy and Unforgettable Fire. Joshua Tree is a classic album too.
  11. I think the Verve are well and truely over - I think their ex drummer toured with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in the UK when their drummer couldnt' get a visa... hmmm, not a very interesting fact! Richard Ashcroft did some solo stuff, to mixed success, there was this cool video where half way through he stops the music and has a pee.... whatever... My favourites are Sonnet (bit of a heartbreaker) and Lucky Man.
  12. True, but there are some films which are made just that much better by the music, when they pick that perfect track which just makes the scene (or the film), and you totally connect the film and the song... Like Blister in the Sun, in Gross Point Blanke - yeh, I know that's not a music film either - sorry!
  13. I'd be a punk-rock babe - lead singer of an underground band with a huge cult following.... ...'cept I'm probably too old and can't sing.... also pushing the definition of babe... Nevermind, that's what dreams are for!
  14. Mine is an Andy Warhol of Nico - you can't read the writing in the top left hand corners of each face but they say 'goddess' 'pop star' 'junkie' and 'loon'. It's a bit too detailed but I like it.
  15. What about the music in 'Lost in Translation'? Kevin Sheilds (My Bloody Valentine) had a lot to do with that including writing new stuff, which he hasn't done for years. And to end a film with 'Just Like Honey'.... that was a magic moment for me!
  16. If you're feeling really miserable and need cheering up then try some love songs by Nick Cave. The object of his affections don't usually have a happy ending, if you get what I mean... no, it really is quite amusing! Try 'Where the Wild Roses Grow', which he dueted with Kylie... so the ending was quite fitting!! (apologies to all you Kylie fans out there)
  17. Ok, I guess my choices aren't going to be popular with you guys but here they are anyway: Velvet Underground & Nico - Velvet Underground Damned Damned Damned - The Damned Crocodiles - Echo & the Bunnymen Psychedelic Furs - Psychedelic Furs Psychocandy - Jesus & Mary Chain Isn't Anything - My Bloody Valentine Highly Evolved - The Vines Turn on the Bright Lights - Interpol Stellastarr*- Stellastarr*
  18. I think the best I've heard were: Harvest Moon - Neil Young (this one definatley stood out from all the rest) Can't take my eyes off you - Andy Williams (?)
  19. Velvet Underground Damned/Stranglers/Buzzcocks Cure/Psychedelic Furs/Jesus & Mary Chain/Smiths Bowie Black Rebel Motorcycle Club/Stellastarr*/Interpol/Killers Too many!
  20. I love my old punks: The Damned (10 times) The Buzzcocks (3 times) Dead Kennedys Stiff Little Fingers Stranglers (Hugh Cornwall's last tour with them) And the great post punk 80s: The Cure, Jesus & Mary Chain (3 times), Psychedelic Furs (3 times) For modern bands, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are kings. Best gigs experiences have to be my two Glastonburys (1992 and 2004)
  21. Peaches - the Stranglers "walking on the beaches, looking at the peaches" Does that work?
