Soundtrack Album To 2016 Film On Double LP!
Features Great 1980's Music From The Cars, Dire Straits, Pete Townshend, ZZ Top & More!
The movie contains many more period appropriate songs than could be included on
the double LP. However, the Official Soundtrack album does not disappoint with
music from Van Halen, Dire Straits, The Cars, Blondie, ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, Hot
Chocolate, Pete Townshend and more!
"Richard Linklater cares about the music in his films, with "School Of Rock,"
"Boyhood," and "Dazed and Confused" in particular showing a strong commitment to
a carefully curated soundtrack. But what you might not know is how much of a
stickler the director is for ensuring the song choices are not anachronistic —
for his movies, or anybody else’s.
""If I know a song came out a year later than the time when a film is set, f—
you, you just lost me. You can’t approach a period film saying, ‘Oh, who’s going
to care?’ No, no! I’m doing it for that one person who does care. Because
they’re out there. I’m that person. If you’re going to be fast and loose with
that, I don’t trust you on anything. You at least have to try," he told The
Toronto Star. "Even way back when I did ‘Dazed and Confused’ (set in 1976), I
was trying to get a Thin Lizzy song for it, ‘The Boys Are Back In Town.’ But
that didn’t come out until June 4 and (the movie setting) was May 28! I went, ‘I
can’t use it, I can’t use it!’ "
"Well, the director is never short of music he can use, and that’s certainly
true for his "Everybody Wants Some!!"" - indiewire.com
