Baby Driver

Most movies tend to include pretty terrible music.

There have been some great soundtracks from composers like Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer, and Howard Shore, but when it comes to pop and rock well, bleah.

The Guardians of the Galaxy films have been a rare bright spot, and now we have Baby Driver, a movie named for a deep cut from Simon and Garfunkel, and that I may hit the theater more for the music than the film itself.

I’ve embedded the soundtrack below, from Spotify. If you are running an adblocker you may need to whitelist my site. I don’t run ads. Promise.

Friday Music: The Lumineers

The Lumineers tend to put me in a good mood, regardless of what’s going on.

There’s an awful lot of over-produced music around, and that’s coming from a guy who listens to prog bands like Genesis, Rush, Yes, and Pink Floyd.

The Lumineers sound like a bunch of folks that are having a good time.

And:

It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love’s indifference
So pay attention now
I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

They can write.

Have a good weekend.
