One of my favorite soundtrack songs is Golden Brown by The Stranglers. I wish I could claim I was in love with it ever since I heard it on the 1981 release of La Folie but I was only 2 at the time. I admittedly didn't know anything about the Stranglers or the Stranglers' body of work until I saw one of my most favorite movies, Snatch.

Snatch is classic Guy Richie when Guy Richie was good, like the Guy Richie pre-Kabbalah/Madonna brain washing that successfully turned a movie genius into an absolute flop producing machine. Anyways I am getting side tracked sorry. Here is that great song I began this post talking about.

Mp3: The Stranglers - "Golden Brown"
Buy: La Folie from Amazon.

Mp3: Better Daze - "Golden Brown" (The Stranglers Cover)
Buy: Ubiquity's Rewind Vol. 1 from eMusic.

Update! Head over to So Much Silence and get this track:
Mp3: Kaleef - "Golden Brown"

Man, I have a hip-hop track that uses "Golden Brown" as the sample/loop. I have it on cassette somewhere! I'll dig it up and convert it.

OK, I just discovered today that this is a soundrack song. I'm from London, so it was all over the pop charts in my youth.

It always had that beautiful instrumental track, but with lyrics praising up smack... Can't help loving the song, but that always felt a bit uncomfy.

Kevin's hip hop track is fab - nice bit of sampling and Kaleef's intelligent commentary over the top. That's going to be playing all week. At least.

25 years fell off my age today.
thanks both of you.
