Actually, Doris was one of the most popular Big Band singers amongst GIs during WWII. Ã‚Â She modeled her voice off of Ella Fitzgerald, and was very Jazz oriented when her career first started out. Ã‚Â If you haven't listened to "Sentimental Journey", then I think you should to get a better grasp of Doris before she became America's favorite virgin. Ã‚Â
I disagree about having an original score. Ã‚Â The 1940s was really heavily influenced by Pop culture. Ã‚Â Women and men modeled their whole style off of the latest picture inducing trend. Ã‚Â For Quentin not to grab hold of that and put it in the movie, it would be odd and not representative of the time. Ã‚Â I doubt the movie will be sentimental or milquetoast, because the time was blood drenched and almost too surreal (Hitler's rise to power, anyone?). Ã‚Â I think having Morricone supervising the music would be great, but I want
the pop music to be placed and heard in the way our grandparents' heard it. Ã‚Â The time wasn't innocent at all, nor was it in anyway like the flag waving movies that were being made back then. Ã‚Â
If you see where I'm heading, I'm going for a parallel between the music and what's happening on screen. Ã‚Â Take for instance the swing music being played while people are blowing each other up, that's what I'm looking for. Ã‚Â And, that's precisely why they're Bastards Ã‚Â ;)
Also, I was being cheeky when I stated Black Flag. Ã‚Â I meant Circle Jerks' "I Just Want Some Skank"
