Sopranos caught my attention as a purveyor of novel soundtrack songs when I heard Elvis Costello’s “Complicated Shadows” a few seasons back. Unlike The O.C. or your favorite future CW dramedy, the tunes are chosen with the plot in mind, not to break new artists. So here, via hbo.com, is what you heard in the last episode.
Tom Petty – “American Girl”
Carmela plays CD on boombox for Tony.
Mike Finnegan – “Just A Little Bit”
Tony gets off an elevator and heads to the bar. He has a conversation with the bartender.
Deep Purple – “Smoke On The Water”
Carmela plays song on boombox for Tony.
Prodigy – “Spitfire”
Chris talks to Ahmed and Muhammed at the Bada Bing.
Dave “Babey” Cortez – “The Happy Organ”
Some other business people ask Tony to join him for dinner.
Jimmy Smith – “There Will Never Be Another You”
Tony and businessmen talk. Tony phones home and leaves the restaurant.
Capris – “There’s A Moon Out Tonight”
Playing on boombox with Tony and Carmela.
Moby – “When It’s Cold I’d Like To Die”
Carmela spends time with Tony.
For your portal digital music device:
Moby – “When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die” (MP3 Link Expired)
And it is damn cold in springtime Manhattan today. I don’t want to die so much as remember to wear gloves in the morning.
We’re pulling for ya Kevin Finnerty! What do you think of Season 6 so far?
