Talk of the Town - Steve's Words of Warning August 19 2004

Lightning strikes the tallest person in a group. So you should always be friends with at least one basketball player or supermodel. But not too good of friends, since you're basically using them as a lightning decoy. And that could be awkward if it ever came up.

3) My Kind of Christmas — Christina Aguilera: Her kind of Christmas includes songs hurtling at you with enough force to break your face. And that's just on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

Classical music, especially, can be some pretty powerful stuff. By no means a master list, here are five instances of movie magic that can be directly attributed to some dead guy's musical machismo. Got it? Good.

??
1) "Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1" — Elgar: While it's been used to great, awkward effect in graduation scenes ad infinitum (Reality Bites is a winner), it's hard to see anything the same after the composition added color to A Clockwork Orange.

??
2) "Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta" — Bartok: Kubrik strikes again incorporating this rollicking piece into "Johnny's crazy-land adventure!" (aka The Shining). Further proof this is a crazy must: See Being John Malkovich.

??
3) "Night on Bald Mountain" — Mussorgsky: You've heard this piece before, even if you don't know it. And Natural Born Killers will burn it into your brain.

??
4) "Adagio for Strings" — Barber: One of the most simultaneously spare and lush selections of music ever written, its brilliant juxtaposition against a slow-motion hail of bullets and bodies in Platoon remains singularly stunning.

??
5) "Ride of the Valkyries" — Wagner: The grandaddy of all musical coups, everyone knows that you have to "love the smell of napalm in the morning" during Apocalypse Now."

By no means a master list, here are five instances of movie magic that can be directly attributed to some dead guy's musical machismo. Got it? Good.

1) "I Like It" — Narcotic Thrust: I actually slowed down a bit because this song, while cool, seems virtually omnipresent right now. It plays over and over and over.

2) "Since U Been Gone" (Jason Nevins remix) — Kelly Clarkson: Good remix of a good song. Plus, it makes you think about bad relationships. Speed back up and start running.

??
3) "Burned with Desire" — Armin van Buuren: A little moody, but still in line. And light-years better than the new single (which could have come up on the rotation). So it's all good.

??
4) "Don't Call Me Baby" — Madison Avenue: Blast form the not-too-distant-past single that used to scrape at my brain. Now that we've all had a break, it's fun again.

??
5) "Oh My Gosh" — Basement Jaxx: Nice. The best way to finish things out. Funky, sharp and so, so good. There should be an all-Basement Jaxx station. I'm just sayin'."
