So after the release of the "Take me home, country roads" trailer featuring the John Denver song they have really stepped up the quality of this film, and I hope the song features in the actual movie. A good well known song that emotes to the film can make such a difference to how the viewer perceives and remembers the film. It adds another dimension and layer to the experience.

Think of Guns n' Roses "you could be mine" in T2, or Little Richards "Long tall sally" in Predator as excellent Sci-fi examples. Classic memorable films that portrayed the era of those films.

The perspective "Take me home" gives to the film is a feeling of melancholy, nostalgia (wheat fields) and homesickness. It is also builds on Ridley Scotts Truckers-in-space feel he was trying to portray in the original Alien, with the country vibe of the song.

What other songs do you all think would suit this film, and would like see featured in the movie???

Here are my top 4. I've tried to stick with classic bluesy/country/rock song.

 

1. If I ever leave this world alive - Flogging Molly (how fitting)

2. Walk all over you - AC/DC ( Aussie Rock m/ )

3. Rock n Roll - Led Zeppelin

4. Electric Worry - Clutch

I think 'ALIENverse' and my brain just defaults to the first movie and it's terrific score, but I'll give this topic some thought.

Everyone talks about the Vietnam-era war style to JCs Aliens Colonial Marines, but for me Predator does it better simply because of that '50s era Little Richard song in there. That song in Aliens would have portrayed that style and military era nostalgia so much better than the boring military drumming score in Aliens

GOOD point on ALIENS and the Vietnam era music!

Great post!

I think it would be interesting watching David use the Black Goo while also thinking about his despise for his creators to this song.

Here is another one with David going full tilt destruction. Most will not like it but the lyrics are provided and seem fitting. Pretty intense.

Good Riddance

On NinXeno426's behalf, here is his submission which is pretty cool and confirms my suspicion about the first 3 letters of his name!

The Fragile is my favourite but there is really no bad NIN.

PraetorianStaff2414 XPApr-06-2017 10:22 PM

Hahha awesome!! 

I was actually considering "Bite the hand that feeds" from that album and was thinking if ninxeno was a Nine Inch Nail fan. Agreed good album that one Year Zero, one of my favs with The Fragile!! 

ninXeno426

PraetorianMember3043 XPApr-06-2017 10:28 PM

The Fragile is beautiful,on par with The Downward Spiral.but I love all Trent Reznor's work,such a brilliant and talented musician.Whether it's Nine Inch Nails,How To Destroy Angels,his film scores ect.It's all amazing.

IRAPTUS - How very fun! Hmm...I would make the suggestion of the song "Haunting Me" by Stabbing Westward. Thank you ever so much for presenting this compelling topic! :)

Sorry IRaptus to go OT but this has to be posted based on the most current post.

TrilobiteMember5639 XPApr-06-2017 10:38 PM

NINXENO426 - Stabbing Westward are one of my favorite bands. I am very fond of electronic metal, industrial metal, and techno metal. :)

NINXENO426 - Hahaha! It is very good to know there are others whom enjoy such music! Indeed; certain bands might be a little too, um, "energetic" to post. However, if you could provide a link to Haunting Me for DK, I would be greatly appreciative. I do not know how to undertake the action. :)

Ramstein is cool but I don't understand anything they say.

DK - Oh! How excellent! Thank you for doing so! :)

NINXENO426 - Please ignore my previous request. DK "has my back". :)
