My brother loves the soundtrack for "Passion of the Christ" by Peter Gabriel. He boasts how he was listening to that soundtrack when he went to Machu Picchu and Egypt and other places.

I like it, too. It is a good soundtrack.

"The Thomas Crown affair" soundtrack is worth it just for the Nina Simone rendition of "Sinnerman".

Far and away my favorite soundtrack was "Superfly" from Curtis Mayfield.

This is something i wrote about it a few years back.



When I was 9 years old, a startling movie burst into our consciousness, signifying a tidal change in how we in the ghetto viewed ourselves. And it’s accompanying sound track album spoke to our past, present and future. Photographer Gordon Parks Jr wrote and directed and Ron O’Neal starred in “Superfly.” On surface, the film was nothing more than one of about a dozen “blaxploitation” films Hollywood churned out in it’s pathetically conceived attempt to make up for it’s 50 year history of racism. The title character was a drug dealer named Priest who was trying to make one last big score in order to set him up enough to get out of the game. Good looking, stylishly dressed, masterful with his women, cool as hell and seemingly always in command, Priest embodied a way of being that was in direct contrast to the submissive Man Friday or steppinfetchit buffoon we had only a few years before, the amazing Sidney Poitier notwithstanding, been forced to play if we wanted to get any gigs in Hollywood. His suave, his cool, his way of re-defining the rules to fit his goals, hell, his moniker, bringing to mind a resurrection from the depths we had been forced to inhabit, made him an archetype to aspire to. And in my neighborhood so, so many did just that. Now, everyone wanted to be like Superfly, everyone wanted to dress like him; My brothers and their friends started frequenting tailor shops in the fabric district of downtown, and commissioning tailor made pants, vests and shirts. They took the air of affected cool to a new level and you could see it in their walk and in their talk. They took to acting like Pimps and drug dealers themselves. They started referring to women as “(bleep)” and “Ho’s.” In their speech, you could see that they started to see women as objects to exploit, and it was all about the money, the paper. Makin’ it.


If the movie appeared to glorify this small time hustler, Curtis Mayfield’s brilliant score portrayed a much darker reality. Infused with funky grooves, Stattaco guitar licks, thrilling bass lines, an odd use of strings that works far better than expected, bring out the flavor of the ghetto, and Mayfield’s poignant falsetto, the songs often seem to lionize Priest and his dynamic persona.

Darkest of night
With the moon shining bright
There's a set goin' strong
Lotta things goin' on
The man of the hour
Has an air of great power
The dudes have envied him for so long

And this

ain't i clean, bad machine
super cool, super mean
feelin' good, for the man
Superfly, here i stand
secret stash, heavy bread
baddest (bleep), in the bed

i'm your pusherman


But Mayfield was far too wise to discount the loss of human vitality and the cost to the human spirit from the drug trade, and indeed the nihilism and despair that we, seemingly without even seeing or comprehending, fell into

I got a Jones
Runnin' through ma' bones
I'm sorry son
All your money's gone
Painful rip in my upper hip
I guess it's time to take another trip
Don't care what nobody say
I got to take the pain away
It's getting worser day by day
And all my life has been this way
Can't reason with The Pusherman
Finance is all that he understands
'You junkie, mama cries, you know'
Would rip her, but I love her so



Mayfield set us up for the kill, and then dropped the bomb on Priest, the life and nihilism simultaneously with what I believe to be the heart and soul of the soundtrack, -No thang on me.

“I’m so glad I’ve got my own,
So glad that I can see
My life’s a natural high
The man can’t push no thang on me.


So the two-part morality play that was “Superfly” was the perfect backdrop for the battle for blacks folks’ souls in the early 70’s. Parks and Mayfield tried to make us see what happened when we gave up on the optimism of the late 1960’s. They tried to get us to look beyond the superficial, the easy way out, and the pursuit for money no matter the cost to our community and the individuals who lived there. They tried to make us see the danger of venerating style without substance. But at the time, we were no more equipped to turn toward the light than we were to see the lessons of everything we had ever been taught by those who came before us. In my ‘hood, the battle became a rout, Nihilism, negativity, despair won going away.

Oh, I forgot Batman.

Also, John Williams composes/scores films. The score isn't considered the soundtrack. So, having said that, John's scores are legendary and unmatched. I also like Danny Elfman as a composer/scorer - The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, and Dead Presidents.


I like John Williams' "NBC Nightly News" theme.
