Música y cine

Nota sobre las 50 canciones en películas más importantes de todos los tiempos en la última revista Cinemanía, con muchos aciertos, algunas perlitas y pocos errores. Más allá que las canciones gusten o no.

Claro que estamos de acuerdo con "Stayin' Alive" de los Bee Gees ("Saturday Night Fever", 1977), con "What a Wonderful World" de Louis Armstrong en "Good Morning Vietnam!" (1987). Lo mismo pasa con "Over the rainbow" (Judy Garland en "El Mago de Oz", 1939); "As time goes by" (Dooley Wilson en "Casablanca", 1942); "Mrs. Robinson" de Simon & Garfunkel en "El Graduado" (1967) y "Stand by me" (Ben E. King en "Cuenta conmigo", 1986).

Las agradables perlitas: "Girl, you'll be a woman soon" (cover de Urge Overkill del tema de Neil Diamond, en "Pulp Fiction", 1994). Genial que hayan mencionado "Dancing Queen" de ABBA porque es todo un acierto Toni Collette bailando en "El casamiento de Muriel" (1994). Aciertos también en "Bohemian Rhapsody" de Queen - genial toma de los 4 amigos cantándola en "Wayne's World" (1992). El cover de "She" hecho por Elvis Costello sobre el original de Charles Aznavour para "Notting Hill" (1999) es hermoso.

Tal vez yo hubiera agregado algo de "The Commitments", o de "24-hour party people", o "Forbidden Colours" de Ryuichi Sakamoto cantada por David Sylvian, o algún tema de David Bowie cantado en portugués por Seu Jorge en "The Life Aquatic with Steven Zissou". Y por qué no, algo de glam music en "Velvet Goldmine"... Tal vez no sean temas para un top 50 pero sorprenderían por lo tapados...

Los pocos errores pueden en realidad ser diferencias de criterio. Estoy de acuerdo en la película pero no en el tema elegido. Por ejemplo, en "Realmente Amor" (2003) eligen "All you need is love", un cover de los Beatles, pero para mí *el tema* de esa película es "Two sides now" de Joni Mitchell (lo escucha Emma Thompson en su dormitorio):

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, I’ve looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and they snow on everyone.
So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way.

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now,

From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall.
I really don’t know clouds at all.

Moons and junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel

As every fairy tale comes real; I’ve looked at love that way.
But now it’s just another show. you leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know, don’t give yourself away.

I’ve looked at love from both sides now,

From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say I love you right out loud,

Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, I’ve looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
I’ve changed.
Something’s lost but something’s gained in living every day.

I’ve looked at life from both sides now,

From win and lose, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know life at all.


Y en "High Fidelity" (2002), está bien el cover de "Let's get it on" (Jack Black sobre el original de Marvin Gaye) pero si realmente viste la película y la entendiste, el tema *must* es "I Believe" de Stevie Wonder, que se escucha al final:

Shattered dreams, worthless years,
Here am I encased inside a hollow shell,
Life began, then was done,
Now I stare into a cold and empty well.

The many sounds that meet our ears, the sights our eyes behold,

Will open up our merging hearts,
And feed our empty souls.

I believe when I fall in love with you it will be forever,

I believe when I fall in love this time it will be forever.

Without despair we will share,

And the joys of caring will not be replaced,
What has been must never end
And with the strength we have won't be erased,
When the truths of love are planted firm,
They won't be hard to find,
And the words of love I speak to you will echo in your mind.

I believe when I fall in love with you it will be forever,

I believe when I fall in love this time it will be forever.

I believe when I fall in love with you it will be forever,

I believe when I fall in love with you it will be forever.

I'm so glad that I found someone to believe in again,

I'm so glad that I found someone to believe in again.

God surely answered my prayer,

God surely answered by prayer,
You know God surely answered my prayer,
You know God surely answered my prayer,
God always will answer your prayers,
Believe in one who will answer my prayer,
Thank you God.

Come on, let's fall in love,

You're the woman I've been waiting for,
Come on, let's fall in love,
You're the girl that I really adore,
Come on, let's fall in love... etc.

Porque la peli es sobre música y amor y mujeres, y no admito opiniones en contrario... :-)

  • no deberian contar las apropiadas.

    Si hablamos de canciones de cine, hay que tener en cuenta las compuestas especialmente para el caso. Por lo tanto d las mencionadas, eso te deja solo un puñado, Mrs Robinson, Satin Alive, etc. Puedo llegar a aceptar un cover hecho para la ocasion.

    Cualquiera agarra una cancion de los beatles o de stevie wonder y la pone en una peli, pagando derechos. En todo caso, yo incluiria el albun "A hard days night" que es fabuloso y es de una pelicula.

    Uno de mis preferidos, no mencionado es Philadelphia, de springsteen, que realmente esta hecho para esa peli. O The crying game...

  • Ojo Marquitos que es todo un arte meter una canción en una peli...

    "Streets of Philadelphia" de Springsteen figura en la nota en el # 15. "The Crying game" no figura. Pero hay cosas como "Eye of the Tiger" de Rocky que, bueno, yo al menos las ignoraría: son canciones que identificás al toque con la peli, pero seguro hay mejores.
