Is Singles (1992) the Greatest Rock Soundtrack of the 90s or Just the Best One? w/ Danny Prokup, Mike Boroski, and Branden Palomo from the Better Band Podcast

Branden Palomo from the Better Band Podcast, Danny Prokup, and Mike Boroski (regular guests on the Music Rewind Podcast) join Ryan to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cameron Crowe's love letter to Seattle, the 1992 film, Singles. The film and the soundtrack are both fondly remembered by our guests and both were put together before many of the bands featured on the soundtrack became household names.

We talk about the mixtape nature of the soundtrack, and how odd that this romantic comedy film kicks off with Would? by Alice in Chains. We also chat about Chris Cornell's Poncier tape, Paul Westerberg's contribution to the soundtrack and score, and the similarities between the film and the sitcom, Friends.

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions. Plus, he’s an avid music fan—hunting down rare songs from his favorite bands has familiarized him with many obscure soundtracks over the years. It's been so gratifying for him to hear fellow film and music enthusiasts share their stories of why they love soundtracks!
