How Does Jon Brion's Score Work as A Character In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind According to Josh and Lacy from When Chinephiles Attack?
Lacy and Josh Vetter from the When Cinephiles Attack Podcast are the guests for our 2023 Valentine’s Day episode and they’re joining Ryan and Nicole to talk about the soundtrack to Michel Gondry’s 2004 film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which bounces between Jon Brion’s score and songs from artists such as Beck, The Polyphonic Spree, and The Willowz. From discussing the importance of the score to the needle drop of Beck’s cover of The Korgis’ “Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime”, all the music adds to this trippy, kind of Sci-Fi, romance.
We talk about Jon Brion’s career as composer producer, how the film elevated that status of Gondry and Brion to the point where they were producing and drumming on a very popular hip hop album, and how Jon Brion has worked on everything from animated films to Beyonce’s Lemonade since this soundtrack dropped.
Also, we all share stories of films that we had to take a break from because of humiliating experiences attached to them.
