Anyone seen the movie “Sucker Punch”? No? Well, you and millions of others have all avoided going, but I sat through it over the weekend out of my admiration for director Zack Snyder among other things. One of the more interesting aspects about the film is that a number of scenes (in particular the first 15 minutes) function basically as long-form music videos, though most of the songs are covers. Emiliana Torrini does Jefferson Airplane, Alison Mosshart of the Kills/Dead Weather and Carla Azar of Autolux do The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows”, and actors Carla Gugino and Oscar Isaac do Roxy Music’s “Love Is the Drug”. That’s just part of the soundtrack. The movie was more…eeehhh. The original songs would have been better, but still, it’s pretty dope. You can hear “Sucker Punch” star Emily Browning take on the Eurhythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” in the Soundcloud section below. Other highlights include songs from ANR, Chad Van Gaalen, Fabian, The Head and the Heart, Jookabox, The Sundelles and The Wombats. Two more covers, one by Benjamin Francis Leftwich and the other by The Submarines are also great selections from the Soundcloud section.
