8 1/2 - Federico Fellini

Ok many love this film for all kinds of reasons, I love it cause it looks great as video wall paper, yep play it while you have friends over, or while you do house work, play some REM or Gwar, or whatever, it's such a hardy work that it's art, and worth playing again and again, I just leave it on night and day.

The cover image and the title "Daisies -- Original Soundtrack To The Groundbreaking Czech New Wave Classic" brings a smile to my face. I don't own this album and I've only seen it on line, but the description from Dusty Groove seems like something I'd like. About this: An amazing soundtrack to an amazing film -- a Czech new wave classic that's supported by sounds as dynamic as the images on the screen! There's a really playful feel to the whole thing -- much more so than other Finders Keepers reissues in recent years -- and the music jumps along in a mix of military moments, folkloric elements, jazzy bits, and some spare, simple melodies -- almost a bit like Nino Rota's best for Fellini, but a lot crazier overall! Instrumentation has some almost Moondog touches at the best points -- repetitive woodwind or piano bits, with some grittier, organic elements at the bottom -- and although much of the music is by the team of Jiri Suchy and Jiri Slitr, there's also other bits that crash into the mix too -- almost with a surprising, abrupt sort of quality. Titles include "Peach Tree Thieves", "Threes A Crowd", "Red Carpet", "Burning Ribbons", "Girlies Girlies", "Roses Red Roses Red", "Cuckoos", "Scissors", and "Beggars Banquet".
