When I list off movies like Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Reality Bites, Singles, Flashdance, Footloose, and Dirty Dancing, do you recall first a scene from the movie or a song from the film? I thought so. Soundtracks are a major selling point for movies. Hence, Lollipop received four this month for review.
Mad Love (Zoo) – Uses the idea that a conceptually weak movie merely needs to enlist the proper rock acts to acquire success. Oops! The film is already out of the theaters and VHS-bound. Well, it’s still a good sampler of underground alternapop. Recognizable hits include “Mockingbirds” by Grant Lee Buffalo and “Ultra Anxiety” by Madder Rose.
