I fully intend to buy the show's soundtrack when its available (according to EW, it'll be out on Whedon's Mutant Enemy sometime in the not too distant future).
It got me thinking. I'm not a huge fan of musicals or pseudo musicals, but there are a few that I find very cool. Among them:
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show
- Jelly's Last Jam
- Singing in the Rain
There might be a few others out there, but those are the ones that pass the CD test (i.e. I can put them in my CD player and listen to the whole CD without desperately wanting to skip songs). Some other musicals like Les Mis and Phantom are cool too, but invariably I end up not wanting to hear some of their songs. I'm actually a big soundtrack/score fan. I can think of several movies that have phenomenal soundtracks and even some that I'll watch and enjoy mostly because of the good music.
Anyways, enough rambling for now. I'm actually feeling kind of icky today and I need to be out working on heavy machinery in a bit... joy.... rapture.... bleh.
