Options November 21, 2017: JONATHAN HERTZBERG Is Back! (Source Music)
Soundtrack fanatic Jonathan Hertzberg returns to Morricone Island to spin a selection of his favorite "source music" cues written for film. Diagetic or source music refers to music that is a part of the fictional narrative actually heard by the actors in the scene, as opposed to the underscore which is only heard by the viewer and understood to highlight the fictional reality. It could be emanating from a car stereo as in the opening shot of "Touch of Evil" or over a PA in a restaurant or discotheque, as in "Saturday Night Fever." Some can even take the form of an on-camera performance by the actors (e.g., "The Cantina Song" in "Star Wars") but regardless the audio for the source music is almost always mixed in later at the dubbing session. Most often these source pieces are previously recorded songs which were not written or performed with the movie in mind. However, Jonathan will be focusing on the occasional song that was recorded specifically for the project. His exhaustive knowledge of John Lindsay/Ed Koch-era NYC as portrayed in film can be enjoyed through his "Dirty Old New York aka Fun City" video series. Check out his past Morricone Island-curated shows of music from films featuring NYC preserved in all of its glory, teen-oriented coming of age flicks and films of 1981 (the last year of the 70's).

Jonathan Hertzberg!! Fantastic!! "Dirty Old New York" is absolutely brilliant.

Just today I was reading about 1980's New York in a biography of Cookie Mueller, EDGEWISE. What a coincidence. This is perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:14pm Uncle Michael:

I think of "Foul Owl on the Prowl."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:16pm Linda Lee:

i'll always have a soft spot for Jack Nitzche after "Performance".

Blue Collar is a greatest movie. This is fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:20pm Linda Lee:

i thought the vocal on the last Nitzsche piece was perfect. really evocative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:22pm melinda:

There is a biography of Cookie Mueller? I'll have to find a copy.

  Tue. 11/21/17 7:26pm moontana:

Cutter's Way. Hardcore. I want to revisit all these films. Yes, EDGEWISE: A Picture of Cookie Mueller, by Chloe Griffin. ebay.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:28pm Linda Lee:

never realized it was filmed.
this set is blowing me away. just lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:30pm melinda:

I once watched the Swimmer and Breaking Away in one evening, along with a film about running but I forget what that one was. It was a triathlon-themed movie party.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:31pm Linda Lee:

fun! :-) i'm trying to figure out how they'd stress a sharp little short story into a feature film ... lots of swimming shots i guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:33pm Mark Hurst:

Chariots of Fire?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:35pm Linda Lee:

Swimmer ~ one of my favorite short stories. have to see the film.

the swimmer is great, Linda lee. quite a time capsule
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:41pm Linda Lee:

oh my! vive le gay disco culture! was just thinking about the way camp informed mainstream 70s culture during Micah's show.. so here we are again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:47pm Linda Lee:

**highly** recommend "Dirty Old New York" ~ especially if you grew up there in the 60s & 70s, as i did. an absolute treasure & quite brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 7:48pm Linda Lee:

Merry Clayton. "Gimme Shelter"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:49pm melinda:

@Mark that's the most likely one, but I'd seen it so many times I don't remember if that night was one of the viewings.
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 12:29pm Ned Merrill:

Yes, "Gimme Shelter," of course! D'oh.

Claudia Lennear, the inspiration for "Brown Sugar," is the vocalist on "Ligourin's Disco," bootlegged as "Take Me Higher" and "Bree's Abandon." Her sole LP was released on Warner Bros., also the releasing studio of KLUTE. en.wikipedia.org...
