Take This Waltz

Track: ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’
Artist: The Buggles

One of the most striking cues of the year, The Buggles’ slice of sugary, pre-Aqua pop played out the best scene in Sarah Polley’s relationship drama. Finally free from boring hubbie and together with exciting mystery dude she’d thought she wanted, Michelle Williams realises that her fellow waltzer (hey, the film’s not called ‘Take This Dodgem’) will take her straight back to where she’s come from. As the ride shifts from exhilaration to tedium, “We can’t rewind, we’ve gone too far” drones in the background. It’s a perfect musical choice for a beautifully-judged visual metaphor.

1 Bosso!
A bit of Springsteen will enhance any film! Shame the Dredd soundtrack by Paul Leonard-Morgan gets no mention here. Fantastic pulsing electronic score, with echoes of funky 70s cop themes in the track 'Bad Judges'. More
