    Make-a-soundtrack: hypothetical Tarantino Swinging London movie...

    I'll take a stab at it...
    Under the cascading light of a full moon I have consulted my Ouija board... slowly but surely my planchette has revealed the following details...
    -- Quentin Tarantino's new movie, "Honeymoon in Hackney", is a revisionist gangster flick set in Swinging London in 1969 and tells the alternate history story of the Great Train Robbery.
    A team of gangsters from London's East End plot to rob £2.6 million from a Royal Mail train heading from Glasgow to London. One of their team members is a struggling washed-up East End stage actor with mob ties who has tried but failed to break into the motion picture industry & another member is an undercover policeman who risks his life as an informant trying to bring these criminals to justice. After the robbery, the gang hide out at Leatherslade Farm in Aylesbury and the police are soon tipped off as to the whereabouts of this hideout. A fierce 'Tarantino-esque' shootout soon follows, with some gang members killed & some making a clean getaway. The soundtrack of this film is a follows... --

    Without any doubt the opening music has to be The Shadows - Apache, this sets the overall tone of the film perfectly...

    12 ; The Tornados - Jungle Fever
    13 ; Fleetwood Mac - Black Magic Woman

  11. OK! I compiled a 53 song playlist for this - CURRENTLY- fictitious movie by Tarantino about Swinging London in the 60’s.

    Basically, a 3 disc Soundtrack comprised of mostly British artists, circa mid to late 60’s.

    This was way too much fun! Some songs I knew from release, some discovered over the years, some were directly selected or inspired by your suggestions and some were the results of recent research.

    Feel free to copy it And adjust to make it your own by additions , deletions.

    If this thread, it’s subject or 60’s Music is of interest - give it a listen!

    I don't know about the rest of the movie, but the super dramatic long push or tracking shot at the end symbolizing the 60's moving into the 70's has to be done to the last chorus of The Real Me by The Who.

    Actually, that might be more of a Scorsese move.

    My first thought was England Swings by Roger Miller, which has already been suggested.

    So, another Everly number, The Price of Love. It was actually a big hit in Britain.

  17. I put this on the Soundtrack.
