How Does it Make You Feel? Vol. 3

Drive Soundtrack

By Littlebells & Parisienne

Drive, staring Ryan Gosling, has the perfect marriage of film and soundtrack.  Director, Nicolas Winding Refn, used former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Cliff Martinez, to compose a riveting, intense underscore.  The soundtrack also incorporates a few songs that have a 80s synthesizer feel, that surprisingly enough, go beautifully with the scenes they are placed within.

    I must say that I was very impressed with the music and how well the 80s theme worked with the scenes. i felt the instrumental pieces had a purpose. Each composition built upon the other until reaching the climax of the story. After, the songs had a sense of resolution.

    i was greatly impressed with this film and look forward to our movie Hot Seat discussion.

      I’ve not seen this film yet. I intend to see it this week given it’s our HOT SEAT film. However, I did listen to the soundtrack sample u provided and I like “Tick of the Clock”. It will be interesting to hear put within context. What song did u think highlight the climax of the film the most?

    I really liked the previous format and preferences, yet I’m really impressed with the new massive format change also. Thanks for the critique and I can’t wait to listen. I really don’t know what to expect from the album.

    CR, I’m so glad you liked the music and new format. I think we will incorporate both formats to keep it interesting. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to everyone’s critic for both film and use of score. I will be seeing it again to refresh my memory. I can’t remember the song itself when I felt the story had reached its climax, but I did thoroughly enjoy how Refn infused “Oh My Love” with the scene montages. For me, I felt it was an ode to the ending sequence in Sum of All Fears.

      Hmmm, that was an interesting listening experience and oddly gave me a preview of the tone and personality of the film. I would agree that the music’s 80’s influences were strong. I really don’t know how these sounds would contribute to the content of the film. I only really have your review to go by or the trailer and hear nothing but great things about it.

      Still want to see it really soon, I should get around to this by the end of the week.
