Every You Every Me

“Sucker love is known to swing.
Prone to cling and waste these things.
Pucker up for heavens sake.
There's never been so much at stake.

I serve my head up on a plate.
It's only comfort, calling late.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you”

Every you every me – Placebo

Now that I’ve finished up with University I’ve got a fair bit of spare time, and I start to lose track of days. Hence, it’s 9pm and I only just realised it’s Thursday and I’ve got to upload a blog. I got distracted for a few hours earlier because I was watching The X Factor USA, but then I realised this week’s theme gives me a sweet blog topic. It’s movies week on The X Factor and on Musical Musings.

Every movie it accompanied by a theme song, or so it seems. From songs written especially for the movie to a song which was a hit then became an even bigger hit when it accompanied a block buster film, you can generally name a film and think of the song which goes with it. The X Factor contestants are pulling out the big names this week – Eye of the Tiger and Iris, and even a version of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. These tunes add the surrounding sound and make a moment all the better; how bad would all the Armageddon scenes be if they weren’t accompanied by Steven Tyler’s crooning. Okay, maybe not bad, but you have to admit I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing adds a good amount of drama.

Placebo’s Every You Every Me is one of my favourite movie songs. It sets up such a great introduction to Cruel Intentions, by sounding a bit seductive and a bit dangerous. It sets up the whole movie perfectly, as Kathryn and Sebastian enter a bet with a few naughty outcomes, accompanied by a not so innocent Cecile and Annette. It’s a great movie and comes complete with a ridiculously hot Sarah Michelle Gellar and a rather attractive Ryan Phillippe. Nice.

The X Factor movie hits has finished up for the night and they’ve celebrated the best songs in films. I’m looking forward to bringing this topic up at the next social event I have with the mates (this isn’t a lame topic, is it?). I bet someone will mention every Linkin Park song ever in every Transformers movie ever.
