The Runaways movie is all about the music, as it should be. Here’s all 34 songs from the movie with notes on the scenes they were in. The soundtrack album to The Runaways has less than half of the songs from the movie on it and 당신 can only download it as all 15 또는 nothing. There are great tunes on it – so that’s not as big a deal for this album as for other soundtracks – but why should 당신 have to snag all of them when just a few will do.
I was pleasantly surprised that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning could pull off Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. When I heard about the casting, I had some serious doubts. But they have chops and I think they pulled it off. In fact, some of the 더 많이 interesting musical moments of the movie – like the parts where they were hashing out 체리 Bomb in the trailer and performing I 사랑 Playin’ With 불, 화재 at the roller rink combined vocals from Stewart and Fanning over the 기타 riffs, 베이스 chords and drums of the original Runaways tracks.
The 음악 also just takes 당신 back (before I was listening to music) but songs which I have since grown to love. Bowie in his day, from Lady Grinning Soul to one of my favorites of all time – Rebel Rebel. And 당신 are reminded just how much 나귀, 엉덩이 Iggy Pop has been kicking for decade stacked on decade. The beginning of I Wanna Be Your Dog has been sampled like crazy, but it’s so damn good that it should be sampled a million times over. It sounds like it could be cut today.
I was a bit surprised that there wasn’t 더 많이 from the Sex Pistols 또는 the Ramones, but the story focused early and quick so maybe that would have been at the tail end of the tale.
But I’m not complaining – The Runaways includes an amazing list of 34 songs. It’s a good starter set for anyone looking to rediscover what was a major shift in the musical landscape being born. The soundtrack album has 15 of them, but I would not pass up the 19 that are missing. There is some gold lamé jumpsuit goodness in there.
