My Life In Soundtracks: Eli Roth

The first soundtrack I bought...

I don't know if it counts, but Yellow Submarine is technically the first. I had that album when I was six years old. But the first one I bought on my own was Jaws. That was when I was 11.

Soundtrack currently on heavy rotation...

I go through different phases with soundtracks. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Stelvio Cipriani. He's one of my favourite composers. His score for Nightmare City is pretty incredible. But I listen to a lot of Fabio Frizzi music. I love his Lucio Fulci music. And of course Riz Ortolani's Cannibal Holocaust score. But also lately I've been really into Roberto Donati's score for Cannibal Ferox. That's one of my favourites. Actually while I've been editing The Green Inferno I've been listening to a lot of Roberto Donati music. It's beautiful. Really tribal, pounding stuff.

My soundtrack guilty pleasure...

I love the Katie Irving music from Carrie. (Sings in falsetto) "Could it beeeeeeee that the lady is me in this photograph?" That's some of my favourite soundtrack music. I get very emotional when I listen to that and Paul Zaza's score for My Bloody Valentine. When I was with Quentin filming Inglourious Basterds, one night we were in Paris with Alex Aja and got into a very, very intense discussion about the closing-credits song to My Bloody Valentine - The Ballad Of Harry Warden, which recaps the story of the film. And we put it on and all got very emotional and teary-eyed listening to it. So much that I've tracked down Paul Zaza and got other original music from My Bloody Valentine. A Canadian composer - very nice guy.

Favourite song from a musical...

Wow, there's a lot of pressure. I don't know, there's some pretty amazing songs in The Apple. BIM might be my favourite from that. But I think the best of all time is Everyone Has AIDS from Team America.
