Which Sonic Youth songs do you think would make a good soundtrack for imaginary movie scenes in your opinion?

I've just come back from buying a packet of cigarettes while ''Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style'' was playing on my mp3 player and realised how much this song added to such banal human activity in a filmic way. Not in a ''Hey! Look at me! I should be in a movie, I'm so interesting etc.''. It just seemed like the right soundtrack to what I was doing if a movie was being shot.

Hoarfrost is the best for driving on a cold day, especially if you are driving to your death....

Hoarfrost for some kind of romantic montage of a couple, perhaps in their mid-40s, reminiscing about the story of their life together up to that point, but facing some kind of crossroads, perhaps because of infidelity (so maybe Kim and Thurson were listening to that before they decided on the divorce?)

Free City Rhymes for some kind of scenescape where we see a colliding panorama of different images from a crowded city, like the beginning of Lost in Translation.

Dripping Dream for a great celebration scene, where our hero has conquered their demons and everything is finally going in the right direction for a change.

Shoot for some crazy drugged out scene full of chaos, domestic abuse, and mod-violence, maybe a gun is involved?

JC for a fucking KICK ASS FUCKING sex scene, period. Like, better than real life kind of sex.

Brother James for a fucking classic Bruce Willis blows some shit up moment.


Becuz for anything with Samuel Jackson in it, because that song has a fucking BAD ASS groove.

Thread of the year by the way, essentially I think ALL sonic youth songs fit well into a score, but then again, I often think of music as the score for everyday life anyway, its my bias, I've lived with headphones on for the past 20 years.

"Washing Machine" for animated scene. Fast moving, smeared colors and lines, featuring a cool girl and her cute boy painting the town ashen.

The ending of Paper Cup Exit for some fucking psychopath serial killer murder sequence, but only the ending part.

Incinerate for some party scene in an 1990s college movie.


Intro to Candle for a chaotic 1990s movie with cinematography like in that movie Poison Ivy where like, there is some kind of deep drama but we're not totally revealed as an audience what is going on, maybe we see some woman frantically looking through her drawers, then closet, but what is she looking for? Why so hectic? What the fuck is going on?

Can we also remix this with the Sonic Death version of "She Is Not Alone" fucking shit that would be epic! She is twerking right? That has to be the fucking punch line..

When I have listened Demonlover-soundtrack, Stephen King´s Black Tower book-serie has come into my mind (specially parts where Roland & the others are traveling in the world that is almost empty because people have died in serious virus). Never haven´t seen Demonlover-film, also King´s movie or serie (I think they´re made a serie or movie into those books).

an endless LOUD version of Mote in a scene where people being silent and not moving are doing a protest on the streets of a city.

John Travolta and Uma Thurman dancing in the diner to 'Mildred Pierce'. At the end of the song when Thurston yells "MILDRED PIERCE!...MIL-DRED-PIERCE" we skip ahead to Uma getting the adrenaline shot in her chest leaving us to think, WTF?...only to have Tarantino go back and fill in the story gap for us as to why she needed it. Thurston's last yelp when the song ends would be synchronized to the moment when Uma's eyes open again.

sympathy for the strawberry: lost in the woods, dark with a bit of light seeping through the canopy, very moist underfoot.

confusion is next: brutally slaughtering someone in sync with the thump, also can go for expressway, like a gleeful glorious massacre, maybe kids in a ballpit at ikea or something.

anything off nyc ghosts: journey via train from countryside into dystopian urban squalor.

Titanium Expose: some sort of scene displaying kind of sluggish people struggle to find fun in the city while the night is still young. After a while they decide to tie off half way through the song and the solo would be them peaking.
