From Peter Quill’s cave-spanning routine backed by “Come and Get Your Love” to the film’s special final dance set to “I Want You Back,” Guardians of the Galaxy would not be the same movie without the soundtrack. And right now, the whole thing’s up for grabs for free for those in the United States.
Tag: David Bowie (1-10 of 21)
David Bowie’s greatest hits collection doesn’t hit stores until Nov. 17, but the “Space Oddity” singer released a music video for “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)” Thursday to hold fans over until then.
The song, a track released in October, kicks off Bowie’s upcoming album, Nothing Has Changed. It’s jazzy and the perfect soundtrack for an old-timey detective movie, with black-and-white visuals to match. Bowie’s lyrics project onto a dark alley wall as he sings them, and the whole video is cloaked in fog and dark shadows that together create an effectively creepy atmosphere. Just add this video to the list of reasons why Bowie deserves his own holiday.

To celebrate 50 years of recording, David Bowie will release a three-disc hits collection on November 17 via Columbia/Legacy. Nothing Has Changed follows 2013′s The Next Day, which was Bowie’s first album of new material since 2003′s Reality.
The collection kicks off with a new track named “Sue (or In A Season Of Crime),” then works its way backwards. This means listeners have to wait until the third disc—or just skip ahead—to hear classics like “Rebel Rebel,” “Ziggy Stardust,” and “Changes.”
Nothing Has Changed also comes loaded with some cool Bowie deep cuts. The singer famously penned “All the Young Dudes” for Mott the Hoople, but his own studio version will see release on the new record. Nothing Has Changed will also include a remix of Next Day track “Love Is Lost” by Bowie-influenced LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy.
Been looking for an excuse to don some Bowie-style red and blue face paint? Now’s your chance: Chicago has deemed Sept. 23, 2014 David Bowie Day.
A new exhibit that looks back at Bowie’s career (David Bowie Is) opens that same day at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel urged Chicagoans to visit the exhibit in a proclamation that made the holiday official. “David Bowie Is offers insight into the innovator, the rebel, and most importantly, the man,” reads the proclamation, signed Sept. 12 and obtained by Flavorwire.

Grammys Winner Snubs and Surprises: Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath steal, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar get robbed
Last night, there was a tweet floating around the Internet that noted that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had already amassed four Grammys and legendary artists like Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys, and the Who have a grand total of zero among them.
The suggestion, of course, is that possessing an an armload of Academy-issued gold sippy cups doesn’t necessarily have any real correlation to artistic greatness.
Still, that doesn’t mean there weren’t some head-scratching decisions and maddening snubs during last night’s telecast, most of which happened off-camera. As surprised as Taylor Swift was that Daft Punk won the Grammy for Album of the Year last night, the French duo’s victory can’t entirely be called an upset; though there were some mild surprises among the awards handed out live at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, there wasn’t a single on-camera score that could be considered a true surprise of snub.
Luckily, there were dozens more awards given out before the televised show even started, and there lives a parade of outrage. READ FULL STORY
David Bowie knows a thing or two about being spooky—he did, after all, title one of his albums Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) – and he’s also responsible for this deeply unsettling video for “The Heart’s Filthy Lesson.”
Now he’s back with a Lynchian new clip for “Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix),” a reimagining of one of the best tracks on his 2013 comeback album The Next Day. The remix is care of former LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy, who is having a pretty good week all things considered (he also co-produced Arcade Fire’s just-released new album Reflektor).
According to the press release, the entire thing was constructed last weekend in Bowie’s Manhattan apartment, and cost $12.99 total—the price of the thumb drive Bowie had to pick up to transfer the finished video.
“Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix)” is one of several new tracks that will appear on The Next Day Extra, a deluxe edition of Bowie’s latest album. The three-disc set features the original record along with a second disc of bonus tracks and remixes and a DVD of the videos from The Next Day. It’ll be available November 5.
Check out the clip below. It’s a nice bit of mid-morning creepiness to kick off your Halloween. And seriously, watch “The Heart’s Filthy Lesson” too.
Post-weekend newsflash no. 1: Arcade Fire are back with their first new song in nearly two years, and it’s a shimmering, Bowie-esque glam-boogie stomper.
Post-weekend newsflash no. 2: It sounds like Bowie because rumor is it is David Bowie.
What is confirmed? That LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy coproduced the track, which will be on their upcoming fourth studio album of the same name, due Oct. 29. And that Arcade Fire will be the musical guests on Saturday Night Live‘s season opener on Sept. 28, with host Tina Fey. READ FULL STORY
“The Stars Are Out Tonight,” an early video of the The Next Day cycle, was a cool concept piece featuring no less than the Oscar-winning Tilda Swinton, while the NSFW one for “The Next Day” included not only Gary Oldman and (yep, Oscar-winning) Marion Cotillard but also some compellingly wacky Christian imagery. Bowie’s latest, however, is much simpler, featuring little more than the singer, his guitar, and those famously mismatched eyes peering into your soul.
But perhaps the stripped-down approach is for the best, considering that the lovely “Valentine’s Day” is one of the stronger cuts off the album anyway. Besides, Bowie alone is more than enough to make us happy! Take a look at the new video below and let us know if you agree:
