What are some of Jim from Film Rage's Favorite Needle Drops in Saltburn (2023) that are not "Murder on the Dancefloor"?

Jim from the Film Rage podcast returns to Soundtrack Your Life to talk to Nicole and Ryan about the soundtrack to the 2023 Emerald Fennell film, Saltburn. Jim was previously a guest for our episode on David Byrne’s True Stories.

The movie had a moment in 2023 with its infamous needle drop of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Murder on the Dancefloor”, which is used in one of the film’s most famous scenes.

The soundtrack is full of songs from 2007 and older (the movie takes place in 2007), and there are indie and pop acts like Arcade Fire, MGMT, Bloc Party, Girls Aloud and Cold War Kids to remind you that you’re in 2007.

We Discuss:

  • Our favorite non-"Murder on the Dancefloor" needledrops
  • The juxtaposition between the songs and Anthony Willis' score
  • Other songs from the aughts that could've fit the soundtrack / mood of the movie
  • What worked and didn't work for us in this divisive film
