Pink Floyd The Wall (Movie)

We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control

First of all I have to say much respect to Roger Waters and his brilliant vision. Pink Floyd’s The Wall is a film you have to let embrace you, it’s an experience unparalleled. Directed by Alan Parker in ’82 based on Pink Floyd’s ’79 album The Wall, the feature film is truly the visual interpretation of the album. The screenplay was written by the bands bassist/vocalist/ Roger Waters and says he partially derived the story from Jean-Paul Sartre’s book also entitled aptly The Wall. I have watched the movie many times in my youth but only until a few weeks ago I watched it as an adult and truly understood its brilliance. Before I put the movie on I had to prepare, I listened to the album front to back while sipping some high life and blowing kush, after the 2nd dutch I was ready! One of the first things you will notice about the film is the minimal amount of dialogue, this is due to the fact it’s a musical of sorts and the director really wants to let the music narrate. The movie revolves around a young rock star named Pink and his journey into psychosis. Gerald Scarfe provides 15 minutes worth of animation for the film that truly defines the experience. Watching Scarfe’s cartoon of the German bombing campaign over Europe set to Goodbye Blue Sky still gives me chills b! From a judge who is a giant pair of butt cheeks with an anus for a mouth and scrotum for chin to hammers gooses-stepping across the ruins, Scarfe’s genius is evident throughout the film . Bob Geldof plays an excellent role of the main character Pink, especially during the transformation to his Neo-Nazi alter ego. Shaving his eyebrows and all the rest of his hair off his body, Pink bugs out and starts to think he’s like Adolf and his concerts are rallies. The Wall is up to the user to interpret, to me it’s the shield, protection we build upon ourselves, no matter how high or wide we may construct it inevitably all must come down. All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. HHTT APPROVED

Dire Straits – Money For Nothing

dire straits

I remember as a kids being fascinated with the video, it was ahead of its time using computer graphics and glowing animation. Even without the video the song holds its own, the bass is so funky with the heavy guitar over it one cannot help to nod. What really makes the track unique is Sting’s beautiful falsetto in the background, what this does is make an already good song into legendary. “Money for nothing and the chicks for free“, oh hell yea!

The beauty of loose ends is merely in the delivery. A beautiful polished pronounced sound that sounds effortless yet erotic. Before I go into some shit that may get picked up on Newsweek, The song is “ You Can’t Stop the Rain”. This song is a laid back jazzy classic which is great to smoke out too or have a lil drink if one must.

Watching the Detectives – Elvis Costello

“Watching the Detectives” by Elvis Costello is considered by Rolling Stone magazine to be #354 on their all-time list of the 500 greatest songs of all-time.  This record was first released by Elvis in 1977 on his “My Aim is True” album, which also features “Allison”  which is where he got the name for the album itself.  The song is not traditional Costello in that it has a heavy Reggae/Dub influence fused into it.  My favorite part of the song is in the third verse when Costello sings “it only took my little fingers to blow you away” gangsta…

Tell Me – Rolling Stones

Growing up The Rolling Stones were always my parents favorite group, I was into the Beatles myself, but now that I’m wiser, I fuck with the stones.  “Tell Me” is actually off of the groups first LP and was the only song written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on that album.  Here is a live version of the kids performing Tell Me in front of a bunch of screaming fans as they were famous for in their early “pop” years. 

I was first put on to this song watching Martin Scorsese’s “Mean Streets” when it appears in one of the countless Bar scenes, Scorsese is famous for using Rolling Stones songs in just about all of his pictures, but he really revolutionized all together the way music is used in Films as a whole.  Here is the actual scene Tell Me was used in Mean Streets with the great Harvey Keitel, enjoy.
