Nothing beats a strong, mood setting soundtrack to bring the best out of a movie. It could be a brooding, ominous score to a horror movie, an Ennio Morricone spaghetti western theme, or a synthwave science fiction score. No matter what the movie is, the soundtrack is key.

We see a few excellent soundtracks pass through our hands here, and below are just some of the latest arrivals. You can view…

Tom Zé ‎– Estudando O Samba (1976)
2019 VMP reissue (Ltd. 500), Mr. Bongo Records

This is unlike any samba record you’ll ever hear.  If John Cage and Captain Beefheart took a stab at completely deconstructing and rebuilding traditional Brasilian musical idioms, they wouldn’t sound nearly as good as “Estudando O Samba” 

David Byrne (Talking Heads) found this album during a trip to Brasil in ‘86.  The rather unique cover art is what drew him in. The liner notes describe it as “what looks like a coiled electric cable meandering its way around barbed wire” Byrne’s curiousity about this record led him to dig deeper, leading to a

Tom Zé compilation which introduced his music to a much wider audience.

Tom Zé was working at a relative’s auto garage before he was plucked from obscurity.  

Music. Is. AWESOME.

I picked up a UK 45 of Pat Benatar’s “Treat Me Right” and it struck me that while she’s generally remembered for one hit these days, she had plenty of them, usually featuring an undercurrent of violent action—songs like “Love is a Battlefield,” “Heartbreaker,” “Invincible,” this track and, of course, “Hit Me with Your Best Shot.” Every song found Pat struggling with the wrong guy, and she had plenty of hits beyond the ones I mention here.
So why is she relegated to playing large clubs these days while, say, a Bob Seger—same era and about as many hits—still plays arenas? [No emotional stake in either act; just throwing it out there].
Is it sexism? You could take her music as proto-feminist, paving the way for the P!NKs and Alanises that came later (thanks, I guess, maybe) so perhaps there’s societal blowback there.
On the other hand, we always look to see ourselves in an artist’s work; would her original fans—now in midlife and higher—actually WANT that much drama in their current relationships? Good God, no. But apparently there’s lots of people who still like to get nostalgic and buy trucks, hence Seger’s mysteriously enduring—if off the radar—popularity.
Sad lesson learned: For career longevity, young pop starlets should sing about the guy who got away instead of the guy who should go away.
