Jon Brion Interview


 

Bluntly speaking? The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind soundtrack has a unique Benny and Joonish feel to it that makes spinning in your livingroom - arms extended - twirling away - seem like normal everyday urges.

For the soundtrack musician/composer Jon Brion has scored seventeen original pieces. His piano work has that fun introspective tinkling to it that somehow manages to transport you to a Peter Maxie-like world where snow angels and skipping down the street, while giggling at fluorescent bluebirds and six foot daffodils, is not necessarily reactions reserved for the under twelve crowd. Other songs are almost mean-spirited tantrums. Delightful.

The other complimenting artists gathered for contribution include some big named blokes. For example, E.L.O. lends their infamous 'Mr. Blue Sky'. That little ditty is truly is a small musical time capsule. It's good old ever-in-fashion post-Sergeant Pepper smile-inducing rock.

Polyphonic Spree, who has track 4 'Light & Day' and track 6, 'It's the Sun,' are just trippy refreshing talents that mesh a plethora of quirky sounds melded together, kaleidoscopically, to create a maniacal symphony for the mind...

Lata Mangeshkar brings 'Wada Na Tod' to you in track 7. Indian music has that dancing hip phenomenon - you just can't help but shimmy and jerk...maybe it's me.

Beck's heart aches in 'Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime'. Be warned this is a song so touching, I advise against listening when you're fresh in the broken-up drool-cry hovel-on-the-ground stage of a relationship. That is unless you're good and liquered up! Then feel free to sing along, cry to the beat and sway like a broken doll - it'll make the boo-boos feel better. There's even a good fifth bottle air-guitar solo part.

The Willowz bellow out their 'Something' and 'I Wonder' tracks as if the pieces were designed for the film. I adore the tune 'I Wonder' anyway - but within this hodge podge of Ultimate Relationship Songs of the New Millennium it's awe inspiring. Or at least a big ol' bag of pot jonesin' inspiring!

Don Nelson's 'Some Kind of Shuffle' (track 11) is just that! And 'Nola's Bounce' (track 20) also has a creepy time machine feel - Suddenly you're in a Gin hall amidst wild shenanigans, jumpin' uprights, swingin' bangos and trumpets so pristine you can almost hear the shattering glass as a bar room brawl erupts behind the band...

This is a helluva soundtrack to match a helluva film. What you still doing here? Go get this one immediately: Buy it!
