I think it's pretty cool that Hana_N suggested to use this song for her "runway soundtrack" a few years ago, and then it being used for Marc Jacobs' s/s 08 show for real.

Looks like Marc Jacobs stole your idea for his SS 08 show!


Anyway...I love this thread! Whenever I design something, I always imagine the runway music, and that usually determines the mood of the collection for me. Runway music is so important to me and if the soundtrack of a show sucks, the whole presentation, to me, goes down the drain!

Here are some of mine that go along with certain collection themes I have designed with in mind.

Western (loose, dusty pant suits, natural, windblown hair, sunkissed faces, dirt runway, etc)
Instrumentals of Don't Tell Me by Madonna
intermixed with segments from Aaron Copland's Rodeo
intermixed with segments from Kings of the Wild Frontier by Adam and the Ants
Final walk out: Paper Planes by M.I.A.

Civil War Era (union general coats/ jackets with elaborate passimenterie detailing paired with oversized knit scarves, rosy cheeks, center parted hair pulled back in buns at the nape of the neck, snowy runway, etc)
The Man of Metropolis Steal Our Hearts by Sufjan Stevens
Excerpts from the "Little Women" soundtrack
Civil War battle drums
Final Walk out: Battle Hymn of the Republic

Sound of Music (all the outfits made from the same green/ creme curtain fabric used in the movie, girly silhouettes, leather accents, etc)
Wind it Up by Gwen Stefani mixed with more vocals and instrumentals of The Lonely Goatherd from "The Sound of Music"

I thought I had so many, but I can't think of them now!

BTW, Spike, I loved your choices...they reminded me of Tom Ford's runway tracks! So glamorous!

^^That'd be so much fun!

I also love redoing existing runway soundtracks if I don't like the original! For example...I didn't like the Christina Aguilera soundtrack for Dior RTW SS 07, so I when I watch the video, I mute the video and have other music playing on iTunes...for Dior RTW SS 07, I listen to it with variuos song by Chanticleer as I feel the medieval/ renaissance chamber music fits the theme much better!

Guys! I am in such a bind! I am in charge of two of the eleven scenes in my college fashion show, and one of the scenes is a modern interpretation of Marie Antoinette, but the music I was going to use was too heavy (sad) for this scene. I am looking for really good, full of energy, playful music for this scene if any one can help me?

^^I might be cliche, but you could use "I Want Candy" from the Marie Antoinette movie.

Otherwise, "Lord Leopard" by Caribou might be good....it always reminds me of a harpsichord playing (which would incorporate the Marie Antoinette aspect of the show), but it's very modern. It's got a good pace, too. It's not wildly fast, but it seems like a good runway walking speed.

If you wanted something a little more period sounding, "Pray! Observe the Magnanimity" from Pirates of Penzance is really fun song, extremely playful, light opera piece and it always makes me smile.

Both songs are on the shorter side (under 2 minutes), but could easily be remixed to be extended.

This is a fun topic idea especially since the control freak in me would love to pick the music for a show...or for stores that play terrible music.
If the show has a 1960's/1970's "band-aide" theme:
The Rolling Stones from the 1960s
Bob Dylan (same era) but it would most likely be songs from when he went electric
The Velvet Underground-The Gift or Sister Ray
David Bowie
For a show with romantic pretty (maybe whimsical too)clothes:
Bat For Lashes-The Wizard
Air
Goldfrapp-from Felt Mountain and/or Seventh Tree
Joanna Newsom
maybe Broadcast or Pram

Does anyone know of a website that post actual show soundtracks to be downloaded? Iv been looking for one . It's got to exist right?
I want the last raf simons soundtrack. It opened on a mix of DR WHO from Orbital and then went on to something classical. I even emailed michel gaubert hoping he would send it my way but no luck.
I need a website with all the soundtracks of every show posted. WHYYYYY can't i find one.. booo
