Dog Whistle (Side B)

This time around, I'd like to tackle three separate (and yet related, perhaps by fate) topics:

Hypermodern Ensemble Films: Off-the-wall characters and off-the-wall situations beg for memorable, if not great, music to accompany them. Think Pulp Fiction, Go!, Rules of Attraction, Snatch, etc. This list is hardly exhaustive, but the PK Intern couldn't find all the right links,* much to my dissatisfaction.

Foxy, Foxy, by Rob Zombie.

Thug, by ZZ Top.

Atlanta, by Stone Temple Pilots.

Starlight, by Muse.

Fever, by Kylie Minogue.

11h30, by Danger.

The Breakup Song, by the Greg Kihn Band. (The version on YouTube is slightly different than the version I remember, but it's close enough.)

Great DJ, by the Ting Tings.

Dance Commander, by Electric Six.

Our Bleeding Hearts, by Great Northern.

Dimension, by Wolfmother.

The Kids Don't Stand a Chance, by Vampire Weekend.

Kansas City Bomber Remake: If there ever shall be a remake of the classic Raquel Welch film, it will need a soundtrack befitting of its greatness.

Enter any Bay City Rollers songs not used in a previous film here.

고추 임금 - The Eoin Forbes Story: By personal request, the life story of Psychedelic Kimchi's very own Sparkles. Each of the following tracks was personally approved by the gentleman himself, so rest assured that it best reflects the trials and tribulations of a man amongst men.

Unlike previous entries, the tracks are labeled in a particular order.

1. I Was a Lover, by TV on the Radio.
2. Phoney Phranchise, by Del the Funkee Homosapien.
3. The Handshake, by MGMT.
4. Hands, by the Raconteurs.
5. Just Hangin' Out, by Main Source.
6. Blueberry Pancakes, by Fink.
7. The Makings of You, by Curtis Mayfield.
8. Over and Out, by the Foo Fighters.
9. Chick Lit, by We Are Scientists.
10. Feelin' Satisfied, by Boston.
11. Positively Inclined, by Wax Tailor.
12. 4 Minute Warning, by Radiohead.
13. Don't Worry About It, by N.E.R.D.
14. The Big Come Down, by Nine Inch Nails.
15. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin', by Michael Jackson.
16. Where the White Boys Dance, by the Killers.
17. Walk on the Ocean, by Toad the Wet Sprocket.
18. Constellation Funk, by El-P.

That's a life we should all envy!

Mr. YouTube

Yeah, I'm laughing. But only because I'm drunk!

I thought I was the only one who knew about that STP Atlanta song.

Well played.
