music: VARIOUS; Are You Listening To Me? (Rhino).
SELECTING classic pop, rock and soul for a movie soundtrack is an artform mastered only by a few, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino among them. But the boss is Martin Scorcese, and this double-CD collects together a famous 40 cuts used in flicks all the way from Taxi Driver to The Aviator, ranging from Leadbelly's Howard Hughes to U2's The Hands That Built America, the latter used in The Gangs Of New York. Among the best are Otis Redding's Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song), the Staples Singers' I'll Take You There, Warren Zevon's Werewolves Of London and Martha Reeves & The Vandellas' Nowhere To Run. Now go rent the movies. PC
