The Wall Street 2 Soundtrack Is Almost Pure David Byrne And Talking Heads

Was anyone wondering?  I didn’t think so but now we know.

Here’s what we know so far about The Wall Street 2 movie’s soundtrack, thanks to Exclaim.

It has 12 tracks, five of which feature both Eno and Byrne.

(Brian Eno is a big ambient music composer – one of the pioneers.)

There are also three Byrne solo tracks, plus three by composer Craig Armstrong. 

The only song that’s been released to pop culture (on the radio) is Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody)."

That song, along with several other Byrne/Eno tracks that also appeared in the original film, will be repeated on Wall Street 2′s soundtrack.

Talking Heads’ David Bryne is a great pick to help compose (most of) the rest of the Wall Street movie soundtrack, but it’s disappointing that Stone didn’t find any new songs that are just as emblematic of Wall Street culture, too.

But if the soundtrack is going to be dominated by one man, Byrne’s the guy. He is a genius who’s been writing tons of new songs since the 80s. So let’s hope his three new songs are awesome.

The album comes out September 21.

TLP: Don’t Republicans Have Any Good Music of Their Own ?

The Talking Heads used to eat lunch at the restaurant where I worked many years ago in West Hollywood. Always pleasant, good tippers – good job memories. And only memories. Visiting the area after being away for so long felt like being awakened from decades of deep sleep. The restaurant was completely remodeled, the people were all different, nothing was the same, and yet the street names were the same. – Ilene

political campaign lawsuits

Ronald Reagan tried it. Twice. And got smacked down by both John Cougar Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen. John McCain even got bitchslapped by Jackson Browne when he used "Running on Empty" in a campaign spot.

Now, it’s Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s turn.

Bloomberg:

Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne sued Florida Governor Charlie Crist for using the band’s song “Road to Nowhere” in a campaign ad without permission.

The complaint against Crist, a longtime Republican who’s now running as an independent for U.S. Senate, and his campaign was filed today in federal court in Tampa, Florida, said Byrne’s lawyer, Lawrence Iser. Byrne seeks $1 million in damages based on the estimated value of the licensing rights to the song, Iser said in a telephone interview.

Byrne said in statement that he has never licensed a song to be used in an advertisement.

“I’m a bit of a throwback that way, as I still believe songs occasionally mean something to people,” Byrne said in the statement. “A personal and social meaning is diluted when that same song is used to sell a product or a politician.”

Reagan tried to campaign on the imagery of Mellencamp’s "Pink Houses" —Ain’t that America? — and Springsteen’s "Born in the U.S.A. — obvious, duh — and was shut down by both rockers. McCain apparently also went for "Pink Houses" and his lawyers had to juggle Mellencamp and Browne.

Crist’s campaign had no immediate comment on the Byrne burn.

Psst, David! You wouldn’t sue a fringe financial blog, would you?

Biden To Impose Tighter Travel Restrictions On Foreigners

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Update (0900ET): More reports about the new CDC-recommended travel restrictions have hit on Wednesday as the Biden White House has all but confirmed its plans to impose new restrictions on travel despite the WHO's pleas that South Africa not be penalized for warning the world about the new variant.

To be sure, the restrictions being considered by the administration would still allow travelers with up-to-date COVID testing (within the last 24 hours) to enter the country. Presently, vaccinated travelers must get tested within three days of boarding their fligh...

Gold and Silver still working higher

Using Gann Angles from zero we can time the next run up, and it is near.

The last two days gold and silver are down on the back of central bankers talking the US Dollar higher in a attempt to off set inflation. A rising dollar is a form of tightening. Also the talk of a faster 'taper' has sent interest rates higher. But Luke Gromen knows this cant not last.

@LukeGromen Externally-financed twin deficit nations with insufficient external financing (ie the US, not Japan) cannot abide rising real rates for long.


RTT Comments: What this means a higher US Dollar makes it harder for those outside the US to buy the vast quantity of US Treasuries.

Crude Oil Cleared For Blast Off On This Dual Breakout?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Is Crude Oil about to blast off and hit much higher prices? It might be worth being aware of what could be taking place this month in this important commodity!

Crude Oil has created lower highs over the past 13-years, since peaking back in 2008, along line (1).

It created a “Double Top at (2), then it proceeded to decline more than 60% in four months.

The countertrend rally in Crude Oil has it attempting to break above its 13-year falling resistance as well as its double top at (3).

A successful breakout at (3) would suggest Crude Oil is about to mo...

According to the Suez Canal Authority, the 1,312 foot long (400 m) container ship ran aground during a sandstorm that caused low visibility, impacting the ship’s navigation. The vessel is owned by Taiwanese shipping firm, Evergreen Marine.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Courtesy of Technical Traders

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
