Leaving behind movie music composers, I'm still hanging around the movie music genre with my choices for this week's Five on Friday set which was inspired by selections from one of Amanda's recent favorite movies - "Repo Men" starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. Honestly, the movie isn't for those who are weak of stomach and the critics naturally didn't like it but to each his own as Amanda and Sami both seemed to really like it. I will admit to squirming through certain parts of it but the twist at the end made it well worth it as I just love a good unexpected twist in a movie.
With a mix of alternative, soul, electronic, and hip-hop music on its soundtrack, the movie has also done a good job of getting Amanda to listen to some music that she may not have otherwise given a moment's thought to including Rosemary Clooney's "Sway", a song that I couldn't find on Playlist.com but which she now has on her iPod. The way I look at it, any movie that can get a 17-year old to listen to Rosemary Clooney is a'right in my book!
Enjoy and if you get a chance, don't forget to swing by Trav's Thoughts where you can pay a visit to our Five on Friday originator as well as find a linky or two to other bloggers who play along with this fun Friday meme. I bet your ears will thank you!
