I mean, we here at tuneage think it’s unlikely that any of our readers haven’t seen heartthrob Ryan Gosling’s new film, Drive. It is a work of cinematographic genius. And the soundtrack? Pure perfection. It stands alone but once you see the movie - every song is perfectly linked, if not intertwined, within the film’s plot.
Now, many would argue that “A Real Hero" by College is the breakout hit of the compilation and they aren’t necessarily wrong. But Desire’s Under Your Spell has a special place in my heart. Admittedly, both songs fantastically use a mix of 80s synth and modern indie with simple, repetitive lyrics.
