It's not often film/ TV makers nail the 'party' scenes; you are often left cringing like I was in every party scene in 'Girls' and never wanting to go out ever again in case you looked like that. But this. Everything about it was executed so well.
It uses the classic Nile 1984 remix of 'Lost In Music' and it made me so happy to watch this used so well. This makes you want to go out. A real shame they took this off the air after one season.
The use of my all-time fave, Tears For Fears song 'Head Over Heels' made my heart drop when I saw it for the first time. It really gives your 2.36m look in every character. I don't know why. I thought it was perfect.
Requiem For A Dream
The best soundtrack ever really, this film is a masterpiece. Although I look back and think it was a little dramatic maybe; that's also because I've watched it 3,000 times now. But that opening scene with them walking the with TV is so niceeeee. What could go wrong next?
The episode of 'San Junipero' was so beautiful, but it wasn't until the end where I thought the music was 100 per cent on-point and it really made feeeeeeeellll so happy. Of course, the name of song fits, but it's just the greatest ending to such a great love story and gave it the right closure it deserved.
Rules Of Attraction
Ok, this is a really dark but I'll never forget the feeling I had when I saw this for the first time. I felt sick, I felt dizzy and it knocked me for six because I wasn't expecting it. I was left shocked for song, but I think it was the music that made it so much more intense.
The song chosen was A+, but it's the way they reverb-ed it out and make you feel like you are drowning. It's dark, but I think it was an incredible MUSIC-TO-FILM moment
