Stanley Kubrick made his own musical choices for his films, many of them existing pieces that were forever redefined by their use. (Remember "Thus Spake Zarathustra" in 2001: A Space Odyssey?) For his final work, Eyes Wide Shut, he employed composer Jocelyn Pook to compose some evocative string-filled music (including one track, "Masked Ball," eerily featuring backwards vocals), but his score also included works by Liszt and Shostakovich, syrupy versions of "When I Fall in Love," "If I Had You," and "Strangers in the Night," a jazzy rendition of "Blame It on My Youth" by Brad Mehldau, Chris Isaak's cross between John Lee Hooker and Roy Orbison on his 1995 song "Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing," and, opening and closing the disc, a simple but intense solo piano piece by Gyogy Ligeti, whose work also had been used in 2001 and another Kubrick film, The Shining. The result was an eclectic soundtrack album that primarily was of interest to fans of the film who were in need of an aural souvenir.

The music of DANGER DANGER nowadays is anything but original and even back in 1991, when their second album "Screw It!" had been released, it had not been. Elements of BON JOVI (older version), SKID ROW and consorts have been computed, so basically nothing that would make it worth mentioning, if the whole thing wouldn't be so damn catchy and enjoyable…
Bucky says, "This is the best record I've ever recorded". Coffee, doughnuts and a lot of music books is all Bucky and Frank need to create great music together. This was recorded in NYC (DB Plus) in Sept 2006 by the great grammy award winning engineer, Gene Paul (Les' Son) and is sure to become a classic both musically and sonically.
