CINEMATOGRAPHY, at a glance ...
'Choreography' was inspired by scenes from my favourite films and written to be the soundtrack to my own ridiculous colourful film, so as a sister EP, 'Cinematography' is a set of covers of some of my favourite songs from cinema.
'Do You Dream About Me' soundtracked the scene in 'Mannequin' that inspired 'Symmetry Of Two Hearts'.
The original 'Touch Me' that Cathy Dennis reinvented in the 90s is in 'A Nightmare On Elm Street II', and I'm a huge horror / B-movie freak, so that scene where Mark Patton famously dances to the song is a favourite of mine.
The "bonus track" is 'Pure Shores' as 'The Beach' itself had no real effect on me, but its soundtrack really did, especially this All Saints classic.
Of course 'Romy And Michele's High School Reunion' is well documented as my favourite film, and its use of this Cyndi Lauper classic is one of my favourite moments in cinema. I absolutely love this song and dance sequence beyond words.
Obviously, thinking of dance movies, 'Flashdance' is one of the most celebrated and iconic. This anthem - written based on horror movie 'Maniac' - combines my two favourite film genres: dance and horror. And is one of the catchiest songs from the 80s. True genius.
And lastly, I saw 'Hedwig & The Angry Inch' in university on a whim, and it blew my world apart. There's nothing like it, nothing like John Cameron Mitchell's singular delivery, and the music is truly incredible. 'Wicked Little Town' is one of the most beautiful songs in the world and the scene where he performs it in the movie is absolutely perfect.
