What are the best and worst scores by pop musicians?
The news that Dan Deacon would score a new Francis Ford Coppola movie follows a time-honored tradition of pop musicians scoring motion pictures. That trend hit something of a peak last year, with Trent Reznor scoring "The Social Network" and Daft Punk scoring "Tron: Legacy." Gutter magazine compiled a list of the best and worst scores by pop musicians. In the worst category? A surprise: the Alan Parsons Project's score for "Ladyhawke," a Michelle Pfeiffer movie by the guy who made "Lethal Weapon" about a lady who, duh, turns into a hawk. No doubt Deacon can live up to their legacy. Gutter's list is here.
