Listen: Drive Soundtrack

Can we all take moment and talk about, not only the man featured on this blog before---former MMC star and future Oscar winner, Ryan Gosling, but about the sexy 80s electro pop soundtrack?  Recommendation led me to watching this movie on this rainy day, and I am now obsessed.  AND, the composer is none other than former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Cliff Martinez.  He describes the score as, "One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score. That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack…the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.”
