Episode 17 of This Is Not Happening follows Billie Eilish's memorable new album with a slice of classy electronic music from Irishman Mano Le Tough. Dubliner turned Zurich resident Niall Mannion's third album At The Moment saw him expand his musical horizons in lockdown, and we all got to stand back and say what it meant to us. Nolan was at the tiller this month.
In the second half of the episode, we go to the movies, picking out our favourites from original music in films, and it was a beautiful conversation blending our love for the silver screen with our love for music. Here's our shortlist, and longer lists from Guy and David. It was an absolute joy doing this month. The tracks we chose were:
Nolan - Jose Gonzalez - Stay Alive (from The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty in 2013)
Joey - Public Enemy - Fight The Power (from Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing in 1989)
Guy - Clint Mansell - Welcome To Lunar Industries (from Duncan Jones’ Moon in 2009)
David - Justin Hurwitz - City Of Stars / May Finally Come True - La La Land (2016)
November's album of the month and all our tracks, playlists, and chat from our last decade or more can be found on our blog at www.thisisnothappening.net, which runs alongside the podcast choices and all sorts more.
