Random Song of the Day – 09/22/17

Today, Paul Oakenfold:

Yup, we’re still doing the continuity thing. Probably not Monday though.

Anyway, going back to the prior point of DJs featuring guest vocalists on their tracks, here’s Paul Oakenfold, a DJ I’ve appreciated for a number of years, and a song he created for the film Swordfish. Actually, I should be clear: he created the entire soundtrack for Swordfish; this is just one of several (honestly really good) songs from that soundtrack, and I recommend this soundtrack quite a bit. This track is one of my favorites for several reasons, between Oakenfold’s powerful and slightly eclectic backing beat, a vocalist (and associated vocal effects) that give the song a surprisingly ethereal feel, and more, but frankly, I just really love the verse-to-chorus transition, and if you listen to this and you don’t, I don’t know what to tell you.

Also, how weird is it that, in a movie featuring Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and John Travolta, the only good thing to come from it is the soundtrack? Hollywood, I tell ya.
