"Constantine" Theme Song Revealed online.

Recommended Posts

Kack Metal: sl. In reference to Heavy Metal music which isn't very good (ie: most of it). From the British slang term "cack" which means fecal.

For example: Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Linkin Park.

Can also be used to refer to the dubious "techno-rock" or "industrial" music which often goes hand in hand with heavy metal on shitty soundtracks.

 

I partially agree... There are Metal groups whose music don't fit as a soundtrack but they are good: do you imagine Brainstorm or Dio as the Matrix OST? The NuMetal, althought it sucks, fits better. Anyway, there are Metal groups whose music is fine for a film and they're not NuMetal (Monster Magnet, for example). And please, don't embarras me with your sad comparitions between Industiral and Nu Metal. You can't compare Nebel or Azsche zu Azsche (Rammstein) with Crawling or Breaking the Habit (Linkin Park).

I prefer Rammstein (even when I dislike Du Hast...)

Anyway, does anyone know who are going to do the Constanteen OST? I bet that Marilyn Manson will be part of it.

Lou, a little help here. We got us a prevert...

 

BTW, Soggy Cookie, Linkin Park et al aren't metal. They're barely music.

It should be noted that Evanescence are exempt from any and all cack-related classifications.

 

Every couple of weeks I plug "Constantine OST" into Amazon's "Popular Music" search...one day soon it will return a match that leaves me weeping at my desk.

Oh there's plenty of good Metal. Almost all of it originally released on vinyl.

I'm actually quite fond of the nu-metal genre. Granted it doesn't mesh with the Hellblazer vibe but a good album is a good album.

Well, meet me by the river that goes nowhere.

Let me lay my sorry trip on you.

Won't you meet me by the river, little darling'?

I might just let you see my bad tattoo.

 

Well I was gonna bring you flowers, but I didn't.

It's the thought that counts and I think I'm a bit too broke.

But there's some change in my ashtray--maybe just enough to pay.

For a half pint of somethin', probably make us choke.

 

CHORUS:

Well you know I'd rather not go and meet your family.

They'd probably send me back where I belong.

Don't want to hear about Mr. Right.

'Cause he's out of town tonight.

Baby come and spend some time with Mr. Wrong.

 

I drive a one-eyed Malibu without a muffler.

And a tape deck that works if you kick it hard enough.

And baby if you like to read, I've got some great pornography.

And a ten pound flashlight rolling in the trunk.

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

Now, do you have a girlfriend and does she look as good as you?

Would she like to meet my brother?

He'll be out of jail in a month or two.

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

Where I come from they call me Mr. Wrong.

Well, lucky number seven passed me by

Lucky number seven called my name and passed on by

Well he came back don't you know

with his brother six in tow

And that is how number thirteen wound up by my side.

 

And that is how I got these Lonesome Johnny Blues

How I got these Lonesome Johnny Blues

Got the Lonesome Johnny Blues

and there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Here we go

 

Grim Reaper he pulled up into my drive

Grim Reaper pulled his little old Chevrolet right up onto the goddamn drive

"Johnny, I haven't come for you

but I want someone who's dear to you

and the price you pay is to remain alive"

 

And I'll stay here with these Lonesome Johnny Blues

Stay here with these Lonesome Johnny Blues

With the Lonesome Johnny Blues

and there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Woah, no more trouble send him down the road, won't you please.

No more trouble won't you beat him up, won't you send him down the road

Trouble dumped out the trash

Ransacked the place for cash

and he wound up taking much more than I own

 

And he left me with these Lonesome Johnny Blues

Left me with these Lonesome Johnny Blues

With the Lonesome Johnny Blues

and there's nothing I can do

'Cept sing these sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

 

Johnny Blues

the sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Johnny Blues

the sad old weary Lonesome Johnny Blues

Shall I tell you about my life

They say I’m a man of the world

I’ve flown across every tide

And I’ve seen lots of pretty girls

 

I guess I’ve got everything I need

I wouldn’t ask for more

And there’s no one I’d rather be

I just wish that I’d never been born

 

And I need a good woman

To make me feel like a good man should

I don’t say I’m a good man

Oh but I would be if I could

 

I could tell you about my life

And keep you amused I’m sure

About all the times I’ve cried

And how I don’t want to be sad anymore

And how I wish I was in love

Sorry bro, Rammstein are arse.

 

Hmmm for somebody in a Indie Rock band (one of the most candy-assed forms of music to come down the track in the last decade) you sure do have strong opinions on music. What with this and your previous post rambling about how "most metal" fits into you list of kack

 

Just remember, millions of bands with thousands of styles/sounds attracted to millions of different listeners. What's great to you might be total shit to me.

 

HOWEVER the comment made by Spain about proper matching of music to movie is right on. Nu Metal (only one candy-assed level above Indie Rock) does have it's place on some soundtracks. Rap's got it's place in the proper movies, for

 

My thoughts on the music that is right....well that'd take up just too much room here.

Candy-assed?

 

Do you drive a pick-up truck?

 

Pick-up truck? What is it?

Now, speaking about music. In my country we got a thing called 'summer song' (they are actually four or five every year) which is spreading around the world like cancer (does 'Macarena' say anyting to you?). Maybe it deserves a topic. The rest of the year we got 'artists' who came up by 'Operación Triunfo' (which is like Big Brother but in a music academy) and make clonic pop music. The rest of the arists are mostly controlled by an evil organization, the 'SGAE' (General Society of Spaniards Authors). There is not artist freedom here.

In USA? The 'music industry' controlls everything. Sure, 'we are all living in Amerika'. Do anyone expect a good OST for Constantine...

... apart McMahon's opinion? :D

I mean, who are the music producers in the film?

Ooooooo....I think they're the first harsh words spoken on any version of the STH forums. Well done chaps, Jim'll Fix It Badges are in the post.

 

Spend you days just walking and shopping

Depending on how much you're luck is in

Spend the night-life table-hopping

And trying to keep that bag of bones in trim

 

I don't mind not being immortal

'Cos it ain't all that as far as I can tell

I don't mind not going to heaven

As long as they've got cigarettes

As long as they've got cigarettes in hell

 

And by the time we start getting used to it

The dope that's forming on the windowsill

Now we know we've got ourselves into

The cage that keeps the mice on the treadmill

 

I don't mind not being immortal

'Cos it ain't all that as far as I can tell

I don't mind not going to heaven

As long as they've got cigarettes

As long as they've got cigarettes in hell

 

I don't mind not being immortal

Because it ain't all that as far as I can tell

I don't mind not going to heaven

As long as they've got cigarettes

As long as they've got cigarettes in hell

Well not only no, but fuck no. I'm nothing near a redneck actually, if I were would I have jumped so quickly to the defense of metal?

 

Actually I use Candy-assed in a well educated statement in reference to Indie Rock. I've been in the underground music scene for a long long time now. I've heard indie CDs seen indie shows, and gave 'em all a chance...with a VERY precious few there are none worthing borthering over.

See that? That's hypocrisy, that is.

 

And "indie rock" is too vague a term anyway. I'm blaming Tom for that one.

I think your definition of indie-rock and mine might be a little different.

 

The description used to read "Shitty Punk Rock" but that kind of counjures up images of conjures up images of Sham 69 and The Exploited, ridiculous hair and safety pins. We're more of a Husker Du/Jawbreaker/Fugazi style of indie rock.

 

You might well consider that candy-assed too. I don't know but I just didn't want you thinking I was some kind of floppy fringed bed-wetter.

I wish to point out (and perhaps John could try out his thread seperating tool on this thread) that "indie" is a term and "rock" is another that covers a whole lot of things. If'n y'all were to see a blue car you didn't like would you say "all blue cars are rubbish-assed" ? No you would not.

 

Of course, the metal thing is not the same.

Contemporary metal (a subset of "rock") is correctly identified as "kack".

 

Surprisingly, Dead Man's Shoes had an EXCELLENT indie alt-country soundtrack (with a couple of dancey ambient things thrown in ... whatever the Aphex Twin is correctly labelled as).

I went to see Clayhill, one of the bands on the soundtrack to Dead Man's hand the other day. They were showing another film Shane Meadows had made that they were in just before they played. It was ace.

 

Sorry, completely irrelevant, I know.

How in any fashion is that hypocrisy? Everyone's entitled to their own tastes. It certainly is up to each person to find what they like/dislike. It comes to each person's own OPINION....that's where the scathing nature of my "Indie Rock=Candy-assed" came from. If someone's opinion is all metal is kack well then I feel justified in voicing my own opinion of Indie. The point of the above comment was don't make broad statements without expecting someone to have a rebuttal.

 

BUT yes this has gone WAY off topic.
