50 shades of stars

25 Jun

Today’s Indie: Bright Star / Ben Watt, Stimming & Julia Biel (Sunset remix)

‘every road that I walk has a bend / has a fall / and I make the choice I make / and I take the path I take’  

I caved at the airport bookstore on a recent vacation and bought 50 Shades of Grey – mostly out of shear curiosity to see what all the buzz was about. I found out about 100 pages in, and now understand why so many people are getting it on E-readers after getting more than a few raised eyebrows of interest on the Muni. As my cheeks turned to various shades of pink the other day I got to thinking about the inevitable upcoming blockbuster (Twilight for adults!) and what sultry soundtrack they will decide to surround the tremendously attractive actors they find to play Grey and Ana with.

Ultimately this remix of Bright Star came to mind – the perfect slow jam with off beat tinges of Thom Yorke like ambience. Even though it is a different sound, it still reminds me somehow of Desiree’s old song Kissing You in the fish tank scene of Baz Luhrmann Romeo and Juliet. Ah, bittersweet young love. #indie / tory
