What Song to Add to the MSCL Soundtrack?

Post by JPP13 » Sep 28th 2003, 8:23 pm

I've been thinking about songs I'd have liked to have seen on the series (not that the music wasn't great, it was).

So what songs could have been featured? Ideally the song would have existed at the time of the series (sorry, no Britney haha), but thats up to you. Also, for extra credit how about placing the song in the show?

The song that got me started thinking about this was "Last Goodbye" by Jeff Buckley. Wonderful, emotional song. I don't have a specific scene in mind, but any of the ones where Angela and Jordan part seems appropriate.

For the epic conclusion I thought of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", as the camera focuses on Angela as she drives off with Jordan. "I've looked at Life from both sides now, and still somehow....I really don't know Life, at all..."

So, anyone else?

There are some great suggestions in the custom soundtrack thread and the music cues thread. I had to work all day, so I'm all tapped out of brain cells right now.

Buffalo Tom

I dunno about anyone else, but I thought Buffalo Tom's "Late At Night" should have been on the soundtrack. I was kinda disappointed that it wasn't! I think that song played an important part in "Self-Esteem", both in the club and when Jordan finally approaches Angela in public. I dunno, that's just what I think though............ :scratchinghead:

I was hoping for Jared Leto's rendition of "I Wanna Be Sedated"
