Part 1 of my conversation with guest Jay Breitling as we discuss movie soundtracks. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Ty Segall, Spider Bags, METZ and Mission of Burma.

Show notes:

- Recorded at Chez Breitling

- Breitling: The Rocky soundtrack was big in his childhood in Philly

- Soundtracks went from simple scores to multiple artists

- Hulk Hogan's sex tape nearly ruined the Internet

- "Rock Around the Clock" made its mark

- Elvis, Beatles both used soundtracks well

- Having kids forces you to listen to children's movie soundtracks

- Kenny Loggins built his career around soundtrack hits

- The '80s saw numerous videos for soundtrack songs featuring clips from movie

- Journey contributed to the Tron soundtrack

- Heavy Metal soundtrack featured two different songs called "Heavy Metal"

- Soundtracks were a way for artists to keep their name out there between albums

- Breitling: Fond memories of the Xanadu soundtrack

- Kumar: Remember digging Frankie Valli's title track of the Grease soundtrack

- Rap and rock met in the Judgment Night soundtrack

- Jon Cafferty and Beaver Brown became big thanks to the movie Eddie and Cruisers

- Elliott Smith's contributions to Good Will Hunting made him a household name

- Rock artists like Mark Mothersbaugh and Danny Elfman became film composers

Music:
Ty Segall - Femme Fatale

Spider Bags - Friday Night

METZ - Headache

Mission of Burma - 2wice
