Morning, everyone. I hope you’ve all had lovely weekends.
This blog has taken a back seat recently while I’ve adjusted to my new job and living back home. I’m planning on writing some blog posts tonight – including my long overdue James Bond reviews – so keep tuned for some new posts soon.
Instead of driving to work, I now take the train in. After years of neglect, my iPod has now become my new best friend. Since starting my new job last week I’ve been listening to a huge range of music, including the fantastic Led Zeppelin.
Led Zep’s music has been used and adapted in many films, including David Fincher’s recent adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo where Karen O and Trent Reznor covered ‘Immigrant Song’.
Rightly or wrongly, whenever I hear Led Zep’s ‘Kashmir’ I think of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 sci-fi disaster film Godzilla, where the song was sampled in Puff Daddy’s ‘Come With Me’.
Led Zep’s original is fantastic but I think it was used to great effect in Godzilla. Led Zep’s Jimmy Page, who co-wrote the song, must have thought it suited the film as he made an appearance in the video and some live performances.
• What do you reckon? Was this well-known guitar riff a good choice for the disaster flick?
