Lost Highway

Spooky and cool--those two words pretty much sum up this soundtrack for David Lynch's stranger-than-usual movie. It's a mix of hard-edged techno-industrial, slightly spooky jazz, and orchestral compositions from Angelo Badalamenti. David Bowie's "I'm Deranged" is a major highlight, proving once again that he is the coolest man on the planet. Badalamenti's instrumental tracks are reminiscent of Elliot Goldenthal's Interview with the Vampire soundtrack, although "Dub Driving" sounds like an accompaniment to Sam Spade. Sandwiched between a pair of tense city-thriller tracks by Barry Adamson, Lou Reed's rendition of "This Magic Moment" acquires its own disturbing dimension, but the most entertaining track on this CD is, without a doubt, Marilyn Manson's rendition of "I Put a Spell on You." It's not exactly party music, but it's loaded with atmosphere.

Solange - Cranes In The Sky

A bit mad huh? There is something crazy about this song, is it the video or the lyrics? It's maybe just me.
