Dredd Song (1995)
« on: July 15, 2015, 13:27:04 »
Just a few days ago, the movie "Judge Dredd" was repeated on telly once more, it was on late so I only watched for a little while, but it made me think of the soundtrack...
The Cure song on it wasn't too well received, Robert himself admitting they'd "over-reached" themselves working with an orchestra, but I think it's quite good for a "rarity"/soundtrack contribution. What do you think?
Back in 1995 of course, it was the only released song alongside their cover of "Young Americans", thus the only "sign of life" from the studio...
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

Absolutely love it, though I can understand that it wasn't too well received. The Cure contributing to a crap film and using a live string section for a song? Nevertheless, that song kind of saved my life, so it's one of my favourites. Thanks for reminding me of it!

Well, at least I felt that way back then. And it was good to get some support by your favourite band saying "never let go".

"Never say surrender... always have to fight to win"
These lyrics somehow to me seemed similar in topic to "Fight" from the "Kiss Me..." album!
