With the Chemical Brothers hit score to Hanna burning up the iTunes chart, we started poking around a few other films in search of some good tunes. Here’s five we’ve been enjoying lately.
1. Scream 4‘s use of “Bad Karma” by Ida Maria
The stomping rock of Ida Maria’s “Bad Karma” seems perfect for the fourth installment of a horror franchise because the message is plain and simple: “Bad karma’s a bitch.”
2. Red Riding Hood‘s use of “The Wolf” by Fever Ray
Possible spoiler? There’s a really weird scene in Red Riding Hood where the entire cast puts on masks and dances with each other, when actress Amanda Seyfried dances on another girl to make some dude jealous. Yeah, anyway, that whole scene would’ve been even more stupid had it not been for this awesome tribal Fever Ray song.
3. Arthur‘s use of “Where Our Destination Lies” by Ben Gibbard
Arthur‘s bombing at the box office but this this Ben Gibbard track is a saving grace.
4. The Lincoln Lawyer‘s use of “I Remember” by Deadmau5 and Kaskade
“I Remember” begins as a club song with a thumping beat, but then turns slowly into an atmospheric, nostalgic thing. We’re not sure how that factors into a legal thriller, but we’ll go with it.
5. Sucker Punch‘s use of “Tomorrow Never Knows” by Carla Azar and Alison Mosshart
