New Movie, New Playlist: Part 2

So Wednesday I posted Part 1 of my bullshit speculative playlist for Richard Armitage’s new role in the filming-right-now Sleepwalker and a lot — okay, all of it but the Robert Palmer — the speculation was thanks to Marlise Boland’s post at The Anglophile Channel. Part 1 was rocking stuff and Part 2 is a little not so rocking. It all still rocks, though, and I got some really good suggestions that I’m including so ready?

Servetus suggested this one off blog and I’m so glad she did. I think she posted this over at Me+Richard last yearish? “Send Us A Quiet Night” is the closing track from the 2007 album Apples by June Tabor. Beautiful.

Also beautiful and a 60s hippie goddess is Mama Cass. I can never seem to stop listening to her once I start so getting to the next one might take me a minute here. This is from her debut solo album Dream a Little Dream.

From hippie goddess to jazz goddess: Ella Fitzgerald. This works for insomnia, I think.

Again, comments are open…what do you think should be on the playlist? Have a great Friday!





New Movie, New Playlist: Part 1

Marlise Boland over at The Anglophile Channel posted the scoop on Sleepwalker and Richard Armitage’s role as Dr. Scott White the other day and you know what that means, right? Of course you do, a playlist, or in this case, two playlists. Because I can. And I couldn’t decide between some of these (because I am a Libra and we’re in Libra, which just makes it worse) so I went with playing all of them. I thought about splitting them up between the two lead characters, one for Dr. White and one for Sarah, but it made more sense to me to do it by rockingness (spellcheck is trying to tell me that isn’t a word…it totally is, I just used it) so today is hard stuff and tomorrow is not-so-hard stuff. Ready?

Let’s get this out of the way first because it’s cheesy, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to gaze at a fiiiiiiiiine British man. Robert Palmer, in this case.

Now that the swoon is out of the way, let’s get to the harder stuff. I’m not entirely certain that this one fits but I love it and it’s creepy sounding and I’ve been waiting for a reason to play it. This was the lead single from Fallen and won Evanescence two Grammys in 2004.

Obscura requested this one when I was talking to her yesterday. I’m not a huge Metallica fan but I can see this.

This is NOT SAFE FOR WORK. You have been warned. If you click this link and then complain that it’s offensive or disturbing I will laugh at you because being offensive and disturbing are the point here. Marilyn Manson released this cover of Eurythmics from Smells Like Children in the mid-90s.

Okay, so, what’s on your playlist for the new chaRActer? Oh, and spellcheck ain’t playing anymore, it just auto-corrected chaRActer twice. Comments are open.
