Info on the "Spider-Man 3" soundtrack was recently released and it provided a Killer lineup. Pun intended: according to Billboard.com, the tracklisting looks as follows:
"Signal Fire," Snow PatrolIn light of this wonderful cacophony of new hits, I got to thinking: What would the ideal adaptation soundtrack be?
"Move Away," the Killers
"Sealings," Yeah Yeah Yeahs
"Pleased To Meet You," Wolfmother
"Red River," the Walkmen
"The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How To Be in Love," Flaming Lips
"Scared of Myself," Simon Dawes
"The Twist," Chubby Checker
"Sight Lines," Rogue Wave
"Summer Day," Coconut Records
"Falling Star," Jet
"Portrait of a Summer Thief," Sounds Under Radio
"A Letter To St. Jude," Wasted Youth Orchestra
"Small Parts," the Oohlas
Here's where you come in. I'm asking you to imagine yourself as the producer and soundtrack coordinator for the adaptation of your choice. It can be a superhero story that has not been done, it can be a Dan Brown book, it can be a modernization of Pride And Prejudice. Whatever you want.
So your questions are:
1. What are you adapting?
2. Who's starring in it?
3. Who's on the soundtrack? (Or if it's fully scored, who is the composer?)
4. Are they brand new songs or already released?
4a. If they're brand new, why did you pick these particular artists/composers?
4b. If they're already released songs, why did you pick these particular songs?
Try to put some thought into this one, and then post your response as a reply. You have total creative control and I'm very interested to see the way that you, the reader, think and plan. Most of all, have fun with it!
