Tuesday Tunes — The Chemical Brothers


Another soundtrack tune this week, but this one’s completely different. It’s from the movie Hanna. Have you seen it? It’s like a creepy version of the Bourne movies. It’s really great. My only complaint with the film is it has not enough Eric Bana in sleekly-tailored suit and too much Cate Blanchett with a horrible Southern accent.

The soundtrack for the film is pretty badass, too. It’s a creation of The Chemical Brothers, and I would argue that never has electronica fit an action film so well.

Unfortunately, there’s no real video for this particular song, so you’ll have to sit back, close your eyes, and use your imagination.

I listen to this song a lot as I’m running. It makes me run faster, because I imagine I’m being chased by a tiny blonde man in a polyester track suit. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know what I mean. If not, I suggest you imagine something more pleasant.

    This week you offer a twofer. I’ve never heard of this movie, I do like the Bourne movies, so I’ll look for it. And I don’t think I’ve heard of The Chemical Brothers but I wonder if they’d consider hooking up with My Chemical Romance for an interesting concert? Electronica? Okay, maybe a threefer. Cool though!

    I’ve heard of this movie but haven’t seen it. The bells remind me of nightmare on elm street and the whistling reminds me of snow white a the seven dwarfs. Hi ho hi ho ites off to work we go.

    I do like the music and the images you give about it does make it seem kind of creepy even though I have never seen the movie. I will have to check it out now though.
