Music you think would be good for a title sequence.


Recommended Posts

I'm not talking about existing title sequences, live or otherwise, but music you've always thought would go well as we watched the opening sequence of a movie.  Songs I thought include:

What kind of movie would that be?  Well, just like the song says, someone working for the FBI who gets blindsided by a long cool woman.  Maybe she's bad, maybe she's good, but we don't find out until the end.

 

Almost anything by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, but this is good:

A story about an onagainoffagain relationship between an onagainoffagain man and a woman who's too good for him but who's resigned to the fact she's stuck on him.

You hit on one of my favorites.  I saw him in a movie, 'Round Midnight (1986) a long time ago.  I don't remember much of the movie, but I remember Mr. Gordon doing a fine job and a commanding presence.  Wish TCM would air it.

Heart of Gold, Neil Young was one of best TCM has aired, the easy listening music, short personal stories by Neil...wraps warmth around any stranger.

If you’ve ever seen a  CS&N and a CSN&Y show you know Neil “rocked up the show” considerably with CS&N but Heart of Gold is totally the opposite revealing the soft, sweet inner Neil, an absolute gem to record and LISTEN to until the lights go out,
 

Bless you Neil..

"...Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears would work best at the beginning of a teen movie. Imagine this scenario. The teen movie begins with the protagonist and their friends at their locker when the hot guy or cheerleader mesmerizes the protagonist as they walk down the hall with the song playing in the background.

Just heard this on my local jazz station (KSDS).  How didn't I know this before?:

 

I was half out of breath and my skin tingled.

What's the movie this opens for is about?  Like the man says, baby I don't care.

 The sole survivors of an Indian nuclear holocaust inhabit a Caribbean island and anxiously await the second coming of Haile Selassie.

The song is a very jaded view of people who seek out fortune tellers.

I see this for a movie of an old Gypsy woman who is last in a long line of fortune tellers who have all been uncannily accurate. She is the last for she never married and never had children. The odd thing is that the cards always say that she will find true love in the arms of a young man and her daughters will honor her. This is true whether she deals the cards or others of her kind cast her fortune.

Uncanny!

Witchy Woman by the Eagles

Life is a Carnival (The Band)

You Can't Always Get What You Want (The Stones)

Sympathy for the Devil (also Stones)

I can also think of a couple of Eric Clapton/Cream songs

Have any idea what kind of movie any of them would go with?

When I student taught , they did their own version of The Wizard of Oz, and the wicked witch danced to it.  So, it would fit with a movie about magic.

You Can't Always Get...  (used notably in The Big Chill) could be used in any film where the thing you wind up with is better than the one you wanted (fits many rom coms).

Life is a Carnival (may have been used in Carny (sp?), the only movie Robbie Robertson starred in).  There is a remake of Nightmare Alley that was just filmed up here.  They could use that too.

Sympathy for the Devil has been used on soundtracks, but could take the devil literally or figuratively (like witches).
