Forbidden Planet’s innovative electronic music score (credited as “electronic tonalities” – partly to avoid having to pay any of the film industry music guild fees – was composed by Louis and Bebe Barron. The MGM producer Dore Schary discovered this couple quite by chance at a beatnik nightclub in Greenwich Villagewhile on a family Christmas visit to New York City. Schary hired them on the spot to compose his film’s musical score. The theremin (which was not used inForbidden Planet) had been used as early as 1945, in the movie Spellbound, but the Barron’s score is widely credited with being the first completely electronicscore. This soundtrack preceded invention of the Moog synthesizer (1964) by eight years.

Using ideas and procedures from the book, Cybernetics: Or, Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine (1948) by the mathematician and electrical engineer Norbert Wiener, Louis Barron constructed his own electronic circuits that he used to generate the “bleeps, blurps, whirs, whines, throbs, hums, and screeches”.

Most of these sounds were generated using an electronic circuit called a “ring modulator”. After recording the basic sounds, the Barrons further manipulated the sounds by adding other effects, such as reverberation and delay, and reversing or changing the speeds of certain sounds.

Since Louis and Bebe Barron did not belong to the Musicians Union, their work could not be considered for an Academy Award – in either the “soundtrack” or the “sound effects” categories – that year. Curiously, MGM declined to publish a soundtrack album at the same time that this film was released. However, movie composer and conductor David Rose published a 7″ (8 cm) single of his original main title theme. He had recorded this at the MGM Studios in Culver City during March 1956. This movie theme had been discarded when Rose, who had originally been hired to compose the musical score in 1955, was discharged sometime between Christmas 1955 and New Year’s Day by Dore Schary.

The soundtrack was finally released on a vinyl LP album by the Barrons for the film’s 20th anniversary in 1976, on their own PLANET Records label (later changed to SMALL PLANET Records and distributed by GNP Crescendo Records). The LP was premiered at MidAmeriCon, the 34th World Science Fiction Convention, held in Kansas City, MO over the Labor Day weekend that year, as part of a 20th Anniversary celebration of the film at that Worldcon. A decade later, it was released on a music CD in 1986 for the film’s 30th Anniversary, with a six-page color booklet containing images from Forbidden Planet, plus liner notes from the composers, Louis and Bebe Barron, and Bill Malone.

Performance Soundtrack Mick Jagger James Fox 12″ LP

Performance Soundtrack Mick Jagger James Fox 12″ LP

CONDITION: ok condition. Heavy surface wear on sleeve. Vinyl looks good.

US $9.99

Chas (James Fox) is a sexual sadist, misogynist and professional “performer,” a violent enforcer for an East London gang led by Harry Flowers (Johnny Shannon). Chas insubordinately disobeys Flowers’ instructions to not involve himself in the takeover of a betting shop owned by Joey Maddocks (Anthony Valentine), a childhood enemy with whom he has a “history”. As retaliation, Maddocks and an associate subsequently overpower and torture Chas in his apartment, but he turns the tables, killing Maddocks. Chas is forced to go on the run, both from the police and from his former colleagues, and dyes his hair red with house paint. Overhearing that a musician tenant is being evicted for non-payment of rent from “a perfect little hidey hole” in the basement apartment of a house owned by Turner (Mick Jagger), he ingratiates himself with Pherber (Anita Pallenberg), one of the female inhabitants, and moves in.

Turner is a reclusive, eccentric, former rock star who has “lost his demon” and who lives there with his female friends Pherber and Lucy (Michele Breton), with whom he enjoys a non-possessive and bi-sexual Ménage à trois. At first, Chas is contemptuous of Turner, and Turner attempts to return the rent paid in advance, but they start influencing each other. Chas also enjoys intimate moments with Pherber during which he shows his homophobic tendencies. Pherber and Turner understand his conflict and want to understand what makes him function so well within his world. To speed up the process they make him take hallucinogenic drugs (Amanita muscaria). After that evening Chas opens up. He begins a caring relationship with Lucy, implying that he outgrew the psychological boundaries he was stuck in due to having to function as a male man within a gangster world.

Consequently, at the end of the film Turner appears to be shot by Chas, and Pherber is also possibly dead. Chas seems to agree to be ‘welcomed back’ to his former boss, Harry Flowers, by Rosie (Stanley Meadows), another Flowers thug; we understand that they are going to kill him. However, in the final shot of the car driving off, we see through the window not Chas’ face, but Turner’s. The meaning and implication of this are left to the individual viewer, suggesting a connection between the talents of a “performer” and a performer, the interchangeability of their identities, as well as their having helped each other to grow out of being—as Pherber once mentioned—”stuck” within their own “performances.”

The Pretty in Pink soundtrack album was released in 1986 for the John Hughes movie Pretty in Pink, a film about teenage love and social cliques in a 1980s American high school.

The title song by the Psychedelic Furs was the actual inspiration for the movie and was re-recorded for this soundtrack. It had been released in 1981 for the album Talk Talk Talk. “Left of Center” was also re-recorded. The first track, “If You Leave”, was written in 1985 in advance specifically for the movie. In addition to their song “Shell-Shock”, New Order also had “Thieves Like Us Instrumental” and “Elegia” appear in the movie but not on the soundtrack. The Rave-Ups, who do appear in the movie, do not have any songs on the soundtrack. They perform “Positively Lost Me” and “Rave-Up/Shut-Up” from their “Town and Country” album in the film. Nik Kershaw’s “Wouldn’t It Be Good” was re-recorded by former Three Dog Night vocalist Danny Hutton’s band, Danny Hutton Hitters.

The movie also includes an Otis Redding song, “Try a Little Tenderness”, that Duckie lipsyncs to, which is not on the official soundtrack.

Movie plot: David (Alan Boyce) seems to have everything. He is smart, talented, funny, and popular. He is best friends with Chris (Keanu Reeves), a quirky outsider. He seems to have it all together, yet as his personal academic expectations and those of his parents become overwhelming, he keeps his problems to himself. At a party with his school friends along the coast, he takes a walk to the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. Chris, playful as ever, decides to sneak up on his friend, but when he emerges from behind a rock, David is not there. He has fallen to his death. Originally assumed to be a horrible accident, the situation changes when Chris receives a suicide note in the mail. Chris and David’s girlfriend, Lauren (Jennifer Rubin), want to hold some type of memorial, but a reluctant school decides against it, leaving the kids to memorialize their friend in their own way. The movie primarily deals with the profound effect the suicide has on his friends, and how they work through their grief.
