Ok, we just invented a new weekly feature on the spot that will run every Friday [ed. yeah, right, don't bank on it] called "Four For Friday" (super creative, right?)
The gist is this: We pick four random soundtracks and we pick one song from each of them to highlight for the day. Cool? Cool.
So today we've chosen Beck's cover of Bowie's "Diamond Dogs," a song he produced with Timbaland for the "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack (a collaboration people hoped would yield more than one measly cover song). The second cut is the Monkees' very excellent "Porpoise Song," that was originally used as the theme to their absurdist, psychedelic surrealist film, "Head," but was recycled by Cameron Crowe for the music used in "Vanilla Sky."
We'd been thinking about the very tastefully curated soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch's "Broken Flowers," so we broke out the Tennors reggae cut, "Ride Your Donkey," (which is amusing considering it's a movie about a guy who's fathered a son, but doesn't know who the mother is so goes a on a road trip to find his old ex's and find out if they're the mother) and then lastly, we're pretty much always on a Leonard Cohen kick, and we've always admired Concrete Blonde's fantastic renderings of his songs, so we looked to the "Pump Up The Volume" soundtrack which features their version of "Everybody Knows."

Entertainment Weekly scored a little chat with Eddie Vedder about being bff with Sean Penn and scoring the actor/director's new film, "Into The Wild." (news that we broke first, if we can remind you for the 4 millionth time).
How did their collaboration come about? Well, their bosom buddies and Vedder was game as soon as Penn called. "I might have thought about [signing on to score the soundtrack] differently if it [wasn't Penn]," he told EW. Here's some interview highlights.
You've got to be a little wary with Sean Penn too, cause he's a little bit like Kramer from Seinfeld. "Sean very casually showed up at the house a couple days later — at my door, as if he lived down the street and just walked down — and we watched it together."
Eddie cried. They both enjoy cigarettes.
"It was beautiful, and I wept, and it was tremendous. I didn't know what he needed me for, cause it was great. I remember watching it the first time — it was just me and Sean sitting on the floor watching, you know, with a pack of smokes — and I just wanted to say, like, How'd you get that shot? Wait, did that really happen? Were those wild horses? That grizzly bear, how'd you do that? So it was really difficult to not say a word. The whole thing to me was incredibly moving."
The subjective of the book would have haaaaaaated a movie about himself.
it's very blatant that this is the last kid that would ever want a movie made about him, and how dangerous that would be to who he was and how he led his life, to be commercialized or trivialized. Thank God it was Sean who did this.
Sean Penn's creative direction: "Eddie, do whatever the fuck you want."
Sean just said, ''Whatever you wanna do. Maybe it's music, maybe it's a song.'' So I spent three days giving him colors that I could paint with. Different sounds. It would be pump organ and vocal, or it would be an uptempo song. I just gave him 25 minutes of music, stuff I felt that were colors on the palette. And I really didn't think anything was gonna come out of it. Maybe a little piece or something. As much as I wanted to serve Sean and the project, I just had really low expectations. But instead of saying, ''Okay, cool, I might use one thing, thanks for trying,'' Sean called and was like, ''I've already put two pieces in, if you can give me like five or six more, it could be the interior voice of the character.'' I said, ''Let's do it.''
The rest of the interview talks about Vedder's collaboration with Phil Donahue for the documentary, "Body of War." Vedder's not the only one who thinks Penn is a little eccentric. Time Out New York talked to "Wild' lead Emile Hirsch and he echoed similar sentiments (incidentally they said the film was fantastic and all but called Hirsch's performance a tour de force - under medical supervision, Hirsch dropped from 156 pounds to a mere 115).
Emile Hirsch: Yes, Sean Penn is kinda crazy.
"So I get this hilarious message on my cell: ‘Hey, kid…I can call you kid, because I’m turning forty-fucking-five next week!’ When we met up in Malibu, he started telling me about this project. I figured, Okay, this is probably four years down the road. We talked regularly over the next few months and not a peep about it. Then, suddenly: The script is done, the part is mine, can I fly up to San Francisco to read? Apparently, he’d been writing this for me the entire time.”
Incidentally, Penn tried to quit smoking cigarettes during the recent Toronto International Film Festival and the entire media there wished he hadn't.
"Into The Wild" opens in theaters on September 21. The soundtrack comes out next Tuesday (Sept. 18), but you can listen to the whole thing right here. It uses a lot of ukuleles, banjos, acoustic guitars and is very Vedder-ish for lack of anything better to say about it.

Julie Taymor's paean to the tumultuous '60s via the music of the Beatles - "Across the Universe" - hits theaters this weekend and reviews are decidedly mixed.
In the film, U2's Bono plays the character Dr. Robert in the film and sings "I Am the Walrus" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." Joe Cocker sings "Come Together" in three different guises--pimp, homeless man and hippie, and Eddie Izzard portrays circus ringleader Mr. Kite rendering "The Benefit Of Mr. Kite."
Time Out New York gave it one star, saying in a field of upcoming music biopics ("Control," "I'm Not There"), "the completely misguided Across the Universe stands out even more as a theme-park travesty."
Though Roger Ebert (who's kinda lost his touch in recent years) gave the film a roaring thumbs up. "Here is a bold, beautiful, visually enchanting musical where we walk INTO the theater humming the songs. " Entertainment Weekly called the film, "Goofy, pompous, annoyingly boomer-myopic Fab Four musical," and we gotta say, from the outside that's sure what it looks like.
The Chicago Reader was less forgiving then anyone. "If a bullet hadn't killed John Lennon, this Beatles-scored musical might have," they wrote scathingly.
But decide for yourself, we suppose (although according to AP "experts," Jodie Fosters, "The Brave One" is expected to top the box-office this weekend).
Incidentally, this team of Taymor, Bono and the Edge have a thing for one another. You'll recall the trio are working on a Spiderman musical (No, seriously). According to Interscope, the 'Universe' cast performed on Good Morning America and The Oprah Winfrey Show today (both were obviously pre-taped).
But back to 'Universe,' Beatles songs are so damn good that they can't really be ruined, right? Errrr, yeah...
Incidentally, Vulture has an excellent feature highlighting 10 of their favorite Beatles covers (or at least the ones they could get their hands on).

Is ESPN becoming the new Starbucks and horning in on the music industries lucrative song licensing deals? The sports network is going to try something rather unique in debuting new music during their Monday Night Football game broadcasts. ESPN, who has already showcased Kanye West's "Stronger" plans on featuring new songs by Foo Fighters, Kid Rock and apparently next week’s Eagles/Redskins game will feature Eddie Vedder’s “Rise” and “Hard Sun,” from his original soundtrack for Sean Penn’s film "Into the Wild." Want to hear the entire soundtrack now? The whole thing is streaming right here.
Chicago industrialists Ministry are only one week away from their final album, but that's not slowing down frontman Al Jourgensen. The dreadlocked industro-goth has been tapped to score, music supervise and create the soundtrack for the upcoming horror feature film "Wicked Lake" (which frankly, looks rather ghetto). Tentatively scheduled for spring 2008, Wicked Lake" is directed by Jourgensen's good friend, filmmaker Zach Passero, the auteur whose past credits include the blockbuster classics we all know and love,"The Big, Weird and Normal," "Motel: Glimpse," and the Ministry video "Lieslieslies".
AT&T is launching a new campaign of ads designed to convey a "younger, edgier style." The spots will include six television ads overseen by quirk director Wes Anderson (the upcoming "The Darjeeling Limited"). Wes were the reviews really that bad? Or is it just that AT&T has boatloads of money to burn? [Reuters] Of course this isn't the first time Anderson has done commercials. Outside of the more famous and well-loved American Express commercial, Wes has also directed ads for Ikea, Dasani and Avon (note the driver blown up in the Amex ad is 'Darjeeling' co-writer Roman Coppola).
Speaking of Wes Anderson, if his 'Darjeeling' short, "Hotel Chevalier" is getting an R-Rating does that mean it is going to hit theaters? [Video ETA]

In a Rolling Stone piece not yet online (seeing a trend?), "I'm Not There" director Todd Haynes and one of the music supervisor's Randall Poster ("Rushmore,"Velvet Goldmine") talked about the Bob Dylan music covered in the biopic and track down the elusive titular track.
We just revealed the producers behind every track on the soundtrack CD.
Apparently getting their hands on a workable version of the obscure bootleg, "I'm Not There," wasn't an easy task. "We had to dig to the ends of the earth to dig up a version we could use," Poster told RS. Evidently, their search ended at Neil Young's California Ranch where the tracks had been locked away since 1968 - a Dylan associate sent him a master copy accidentally.
BTW: Jim Dunbar is also one of the music supervisors on "I'm Not There" and it was he who tracked down the near-impossible to find "I'm Not There" song. The RS piece doesn't mention him at all.
Of the various covers in the film Todd Haynes singled out the track done by the husky-throated Pearl Jam singer. "Eddie Vedder did an awesome job with 'All Along The Watchtower,' " Haynes said. "But that's a hard task for anybody. It's very exciting to take songs that are much lesser-known and make them something really special and unique."
Indeed the soundtrack (due October 30) tends to skew towards the more obscure Dylan tracks and doesn't feature classics such as, "Like A Rolling Stone," "Blowin' In The Wind," (though the disc does feature Antony and the Johnsons on "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and Mason Jennings tackling "The Times They Are A Changin' ", but these are the only super-obvious tracks on the disc).
"I still really can't believe it, given who he is and how ornery he can be and how much he doesn't want people to continue to do this to him," Haynes told the Associated Press at the Toronto Film Festival of Dylan allowing him the rights to all his music.
Haynes enlisted Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo to assemble the crack team of musicians behind the Million Dollar Bashers (check the dates, we revealed their identities first) act as the backing band for five tracks on the album (Haynes directed Sonic Youth's "Disappearer" video which is collected on the DVD video "Sonic Youth - Corporate Ghost: Videos, 1990-2002 (2004)").
The most important member of that band might be longtime Dylan bassist and touring musical director Tony Garnier. "Tony had some really helpful hints about the songs" Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelly said, of helping the Bashers capture the "wild mercury" of the sound of Dylan's 1966 tour featuring the Band.
Poster said one of his personal music highlights was My Morning Jacket's Jim James' take on "Goin' To Acapulco" (from the Band abetted The Basement Tapes), which as reported, he actually sings in the film with Dylan's white-faced Rolling Thunder Revue-era makeup. "Filming that scene was one of those great moments," said Poster. "Just being there and feeling the power of the music - I think everyone felt it."
It's All About Cate
Meanwhile, Cate Blanchett, who plays the main Bob Dylan character in the film, Jude (or at least she's garnering all the accolades) told W magazine one of main reasons she took the role was because of Hayne's work on the Barbie-doll starring "Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story." "It was really emotionally honest, this Barbie doll barfing into the toilet," she said without a trace of irony (she apparently strapped down her breasts for the role of Dylan to match his then near-emaciated state).
H0wever, she wasn't entirely convinced about the movie at first. "The script was verging on impenetrable," she told W. "It's like an algebraic equation. You think: This makes sense in the mind of the mathematician. I knew that if you assembled it, somehow Bob Dylan would emerge, but only Todd knew how."
But she's happy with the final product, a portrayal which is already giving her Oscar buzz. "It's very mysterious and incredibly poetic, and if the audience is expecting a straight narrative, then they're going to be surprised. It's kind of true in a way to his music, which is what Todd really tried to do," Blanchett told the AP.

Is Noah Baumbach the new Wes Anderson (especially now since Wes Anderson apparently can't make a decent film)? He's been fetted by the Criterion collection, wrote 'Life Aquatic' with Wes, had his excellent and very-underrated film, "The Squid & The Whale," executive produced by Wes and he's writing with Anderson yet again for their Roald Dahl adaptation of the book, "The Fantastic Mr. Fox."
Ok, maybe people realize who Baumbach is, but he's still not fetishized or celebrated as often. One thing that might change that is his new film, "Margot At The Wedding," that has the Entertainment Tonight's of the world interested because of one Nicole Kidman. We'd like to think it's because some of the tasteful choices on the soundtrack (but we would, wouldn't we).
Tentatively due November 13, the soundtrack features Baumbach favorite Blondie ("Sunday's Girl" is used in the 'Margot' trailer and film; he's used their music in many of his films going back to his debut "Kicking & Screaming"), Dinosaur Jr., the dBs, Fleetwood Mac (from their retroactively-christened Pinkerton-like lost step-child record, Tusk), Donovan and recently reissued and re-celebrated obscurist country folkie Karen Dalton.
The CD and film also features the more obscure singer-songwriters that Baumbach is obsessed with (see people of the Bert Jansch-ilk) like '7os post-Dylan folkie Steve Forbert, British singer-songwriter and occasional Pink Floyd guest Lesley Duncan, Brooklyn born singer songwriter Evie Sands (covered both Beck and Beth Orton) and New York Anti-folk artist Diane Cluck.
The "Margot At The Wedding" soundtrack is set for a November 15 release date.
1. Northern Blue – Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips
2. Romeo’s Tune – Steve Forbert
3. Genesis – Jorma Kaukonen
4. One Fine Summer Morning – Evie Sands
5. Goin’ Down to Laurel – Steve Forbert
6. The Wagon – Dinosaur Jr.
7. Dear Mary – Steve Miller Band
8. See How We Are – X
9. Everything Changes – Lesley Duncan
10. Union City Blue – Blondie
11. You and Me – Alice Cooper
12. Clair – Gilbert O’Sullivan
13. Easy to Be Around – Diane Cluck
14. Nothing is Wrong – The dB’s
15. That’s All for Everyone – Fleetwood Mac
16. Teen Angel – Donovan
17. Something on Your Mind – Karen Dalton
In October 2005 around the press time for 'Squid,' Baumbach gave Entertainment Weekly an achingly-tasteful list of "12 Albums You Have To Get," and his deep cut list is yet another reason why we love him so. He picks overlooked and fantastic albums by Leonard Cohen - (the pre-Phil Spector-produced New Skin for the Old Ceremony), Bob Dylan (Oh Mercy, one of our personal Dylan favorites with Daniel Lanois), Loudon Wainwright III (Attempted Mustache), John Phillips (The Wolf King of L.A.), Paul McCartney & Linda McCartney's snob ratified album Ram and Gary Higgins retroactively christened folk masterpiece, Red Hash (a favorite of the freak-folk set). Sounds like Baumbach does his shopping at Other Music.

Remember the painterly and tedious documentary "A Skin Too Few" of fey, sad folkie Nick Drake released in 2000? It's being released on DVD for the first time (wait, we can get it on netflix; whateves) and bundled with the upcoming re-release of Fruit Tree, the mostly-comprehensive boxset of Drake's first three and only sad and fey studio albums.
The boxset, which includes the aforementioned 'Skin' documentary DVD, also includes a new 108 page book of mindnumbling detailed song-by-song analysis and is due November 6.
"I always said that Nick was born with a skin too few", says actress Gabrielle about her brother, the English singer-songwriter Nick Drake (1948-1974).

It's only the first day of the Kanye West/50 Cent album sales showdown and Fiddy cents already looks like he's going to be losing this battle hands down; rather decisively and pathetically.
Remember when 50 Cent promise he would retire if Kanye West outsold him? Remember when 50 kinda-sorta shied away from that claim and reneged?
The Playlist encourages the media that be and all bloggers to petition 50 Cent to honor his "I'll Quit If He Sells More Than Me" promise (like that'll happen; but it's fun to call him on it nonetheless).
If anything, we're pleased as punch that this neanderthalic assclown thug is going to have yolk on his face come next Tuesday when album sales roll in and he look likes a chump.
Yeah, Kanye's whiny tantrums are rather annoying too, but 50 makes him look like Mother Teresa (and yes, even if Kenny Chesney beats them both, as long as Kanye beats 50 we're happy)
Hopefully It's True: 50 Cent - "Smile (I'm Leaving")
Turns out Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo wasn't the only one producing tracks for the Bob Dylan biopic "I'm Not There" soundtrack, but with 34 tracks and over two dozen individual artists recording songs for the album, this would stand to reason (the complete tracklist is here).
Joe Henry, the singer-songwriter who's generally (and condescendingly) noted as being Madonna's brother-in-law produced a bunch of sessions for the album including "I'm Not There" Dylan actor Marcus Carl Franklin's rendition of "When The Ship Comes In" (from The Times They Are A-Changin') Richie Havens' take on "Tombstone Blues" (from Highway 61 Revisited), Ramblin' Jack Elliot's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" cover, Bob Forrest's "Moonshiner" (The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3) and the pair of tracks recorded by ex X singer-guitarist John Doe.
"It's not hard to do something beautiful when the material's great," Henry told the London Telegraph of producing the "I'm Not There" songs. "I've learned a tremendous amount producing others. When it's not your own persona that you are trying to bear aloft, you are free of the blinders of that kind of vanity, you see the way all kinds of things can work."
Rick Rubin protege George Drakoulias worked with Cat Power & Bob Lanegan on their Dylan tracks. John Agnello produced The Hold Steady track and co-produced the Sonic Youth's version of "I'm Not There." Yo La Tengo stuck to who they know best - their long-time producer and collaborator Roger Moutenot and former Dylan touring multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield co-produced (with Antony) the Antony & The Johnsons' adaptation of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" (Antony recently said his rendering was "slow and minor").
Calexico founder Joey Burns produced the sessions for the songs that his eclectic group acted as backing band for: Iron & Wine, Willie Nelson, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Roger McGuinn.
As we previously reported, Ranaldo produced all the sessions with "The Million Dollar Bashers." A supergroup who we first revealed includes the aforementioned Ranaldo, Bob Dylan bassist and live musical director Tony Garnier, Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, ex-Television founder Tom Verlaine, keyboardist John Medeski (from Martin, Medeski and Wood), guitarist Smokey Hormel (onetime Beck player, member of Smokey & Miho) and Wilco avante-guitarist Nels Cline.
The Bashers back plenty of artists on the soundtrack including Eddie Vedder, the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's Karen O, Stephen Malkmus and Tom Verlaine.
You'll remember that a number of the artists on the soundtrack previously professed their love for Dylan by performing his songs in November 2006 during a benefit for the Music For Youth Project.
And we've learned that while Julianne Moore plays the older version of the Joan Baez character in the film, Canadian actress Fanny La Croix plays the younger version alongside Heath Ledger.

Our Toronto Film Fest report:
While we were greatly anticipating the Joy Division film "Control" and have much admiration for the photographic work of director Anton Corbijn, his directorial debut was nothing short of disappointment.
No disrespect to Ian Curtis, but "Control" wasn't really a story worth telling - at least not the one in this script. Let's face it, if this band didn't happen to be famous and cherished, their story would be pretty unexceptional (again if we're going by this story).
The magic - if one can use that word - of Joy Division isn't remotely captured; there's little investment put into the characters early on to make you deeply care when it counts and the movie moves from scene to scene very matter-of-factly and rather prosaically. Obviously, many people already know this story and we found ourselves just sitting there as the plot elements unfolded free of any emotional depth or any great hook to draw you in.
Poor Corbijn is way too close to the material; too personally invested to dramatize the mundane and bromidic, too respectful to stir a mouse. The only time he tries pure exaggeration - a scene where Tony Wilson signs a record contract in blood - he falls straight into buffoonery. The director rolls out scenes like a straight-faced documentarian rather than an assured filmmaker and his unadorned direction, passable pace and timid delivery is flat and uneventful. It's a shame because the gargantuan Dutchmen was ideally the man for the job (having been the photographer that gave the band their iconic look in the '70s).
In short, the story was already told once and we liked it the first time when it was called, "24 Hour Party People." The ghost of that excellent film and its fantastic casting choices can't help but loom largely here; though kudos go to Joe Anderson [Peter Hook] and the exceptional scene-stealer Toby Kebbell (Joy Division's now-now deceased manager Rob Gretton). Though we're not even sure he quite matches Paddy Considine's take on Gretton, though he sure comes close.
Ok and the girl that plays Curtis' not-so-secret lover, Annik Honoré (Alexandra Maria Lara), is pretty solid too (not to mention utterly stunning).
Not terrible and certainly not fantastic "Control" was unfortunately mostly unremarkable and that in itself is the film's biggest travesty.
For film and Joy Division historians a brief glimpse of Werner Herzog's "Stroszek" passes by (a film about suicide that Curtis allegedly had on the telly before he took his life) and a rather telegraphed shot of Iggy Pop's The Idiot. Control debuts at New York's Film Forum on Oct 10 and then goes into wide release a few weeks later. Also of note, if New Order did compose new music for this thing [ed. which they did three new songs], they're barely discernible in the film and maybe on screen for seconds at a time.
There you have it. Thumbs down for "Control." Too bad. Don't believe the hype.
Meanwhile, the tastemaking archivists at Rhino are cashing in on all the Joy Division buzz and re-releasing their first three discs with lots of live bells and whistles.
As we mentioned a week or so ago, "The Darjeeling Limited" soundtrack is due in stores on September 25 and now the finalized tracklist is out.
Wes Anderson fans generally peeved that not every single song in the movie is included on the CD should be somewhat happy. The film uses 24 songs (lots of score from Satyajit Ray films; no Mark Mothersbaugh this time) in it and the CD contains 22 of those tracks, including the first ever Rolling Stones track on a Wes Anderson CD (we called it, "Play With Fire" makes the cut, thanks Abkco).
In the liner notes Anderson writes about his appreciation for being able to use the music of both Satjayit Ray and Merchant Ivory films. "I am very happy to have been allowed to use the music from these films, which cast such a spell over me, and I hope it will do the same for you in this new context," he wrote.
We've written about this thing a lot and deeper look into the music included on this CD can be found here and here.
