Batman (f) Ranked (and Sports)

Quite honestly, there are only two extrinsic soundtracks (as in compilations of music inspired by/used in motion pictures... not scores or soundtracks to musical films...) that compete for best all time. I think this one edges out the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" soundtrack, but just barely...
1Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Massive Attack's "The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game" -- This song is
such a fucking treasure. Tracy Thorn's reimagination of the motown classic
is basically ear sex. seriously i bet you haven't even listened to this yet.
Youtube it NOW.
2The Offspring
Club Me


The Offspring's "Smash It Up" -- this was used in the movie where robin
fights the biker gang with the fruity neon makeup that we all thought was
pretty cool looking back in the 90's. we also thought chris o'donnell was
cool. Great tDamned cover that I didn't know was a tDamned cover until
recently... love it
3Soundtrack
Batman Forever


The Flaming Lips' "Bad Days" -- seriously, this song is the song that got me
into the flaming lips. i know i know they're a huge fratboy band, but they
used to have some serious cred. the song was used when we see the
riddler's living quarters with all those cool/creepy riddler toys. jim carrey
was a pretty great riddler when you think about it. im also pretty glad
theres not gonna be a riddler in the new batman movie. it would be a bad
decision. if anyone wants to hear why, ask me in the comments
4Seal
Album Name


Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" -- easily the biggest hit from the CD, this is one of
four possible songs that I will drunkenly sing to my wife at our wedding. it
will be videotaped. it will be glorious.
5Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Brandy's "Where Are You Now?" -- i read recently that Brandy;s brother is
Ray J which was pretty weird but i dont really care that much. i like brandy
tho. this song is sweet and trill.
6Sunny Day Real Estate
Thief, Steal Me A Peach


Sunny Day Real Estate's "8" -- i always liked this song, but didnt get the
band's album until recently. that was a mistake
7U2
The Best Of 1990-2000


U2's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" -- maybe the only U2 song I like,
and its still sort of a crappy song. but i like it because of its association
with batman.
8Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Method Man's "The Riddler"
9PJ Harvey
To Bring You My Love


PJ Harvey's "One Time Too Many" -- pj FUCKING harvey (note: this track is a
b-side for this album not actually on the album...)
10Soundtrack
Batman Forever


The Devlins' "Crossing the River"
11Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Mazzy Star's "Tell Me Now"
12Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Nick Cave's "There is a Light"
13Soundtrack
Batman Forever


Eddi Reader's "Nobody Lives Without Love"
14Soundtrack
Batman Forever


"The Passenger" Michael Hutchence from inxs... lackluster IP cover
15 ANYWAY, ON TO
SPORTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS


This weekend is huge for a couple of reasons
16 Friday
The Hornets beat the Heat


thats pretty awesome. I'm all about New Orleans cuz of Katrina and shit or
watever. i actually just hate the heat. but there are some cool things to
be down with NO for... chris paul is cool, not better than rondo but pretty
cool guy. Also Peja (even tho he's not a starter anymore)... whatever good
for them
17 Saturday
TCU not only beats, BUT FUCKING SHITS ON Utah


fuck those Utah faggot detractors. im sick of this bullshit fucking Utah sucks
ass and im glad TCU raped them in the name of the glorious MWC. MWC
FOR LIFE.
18 Today: TWO BEST NFL TEAMS FACE OFF
Jets v. Lions


my home team vs. my fav. team. i love the jets and I see them winning the
superbowl this year, but i also gotta rep my blue today. it's a weird
situation bc they're both like favorite teams for me... it reminds me of when
Cornell almost beat Kansas last year (imperfect comparison since Kansas,
which wasn't my 'home' team, had more to lose (like the Jets do today)...) i
rooted for Cornell then but im all about the Lions today... Jets will put up a
lot of points, the only question is whether the Lions will too...
19 Tonight: TWO BEST NBA TEAMS PLAY
Celtics v. Thunder


not THAT huge a deal bc we'll see plenty of them in the finals but this is
gonna be sick. Jayhawks on both sides of the court as Pierce goes up
against Aldrich (and a hurt Collison). Also its always cool to see ray allen
play against the (now) well-oiled machine he was traded from, a great
trade for both teams when you think about it...
20 Sputnik Fantasy
Me v. Klapper


First in Points (me) vs. Second in Points (k4M) -- he's leading his division
(the Thrice Division), but he'd be in Third if he was in the Brand New
Division... week comes down to Vick + Jahvid + Dustin Keller (getting the
start over Gates) vs. AP (should put up 50 points vs. Arizona) and Bowe
(who's covering him today? anybody know?). im favored by 4 points but
that doesnt mean shit.
