Aerosmith stands out on new soundtrack

Read this review from wall of sound regarding the Charlie's Angels soundtrack

The gist of this soundtrack is difficult to determine. Who's the target audience for this disc of '70s, '80s, and '90s tuneage? The same folks who see the film? If the people who see the film are the same folks who grew up with the TV show of the same name and there's a strong whiff of nostalgia circling the promo campaign then the choice of highlighting Destiny's Child, a brand-new R&B act, is a strange one. Sure, the band is a chart-topper, but including its two tracks here with more credible fare like Fatboy Slim's "Ya Mama" or Heart's "Barracuda" is suspect.

Continuing that train of thought, it's difficult to see the logic of uniting cheesy gunk like Leo Sayer's "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing," the Vapors' masturbation anthem "Turning Japanese," and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" on the same disc as Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up (Part 1)" and Deee-Lite's breezy dance gem "Groove Is in the Heart." Have their audiences suddenly become one? And then there's Caviar's funny lounge ditty "Tangerine Speedo" in the same listening experience as Tavares' "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel" and Spandau Ballet's sore-thumb ballad "True." Explanation, please. Only Apollo 440's reworking of the Charlie's Angel theme and the impressive new Aerosmith track, "Angel's Eyes," make any remote sort of sense as logical inclusions here. The whole thing smells of an overly complicated marketing plan.

Without having seen the film, it's hard to understand the context into which these songs fit. But then, since the CD is available separately, you shouldn't need to see the movie to appreciate a soundtrack. So why the hodgepodge of styles? The inscrutable mix makes for a messy listening experience, which, in light of the film's rocky buzz, might make sense after all. Bob Gulla

What's it called? ANGEL'S EYE

Evidently the Aeroforceone article regarding the new song on Charlie's Angels soundtrack  was incorrect the song is not called Through an Angel's Eye. According to Aeroforceone Angel's Eye was officially called (Through an Angel's Eye). They then updated their news with this article: 

Lucky 7 - Angel's Eye
The track listing to the Charlie's Angels soundtrack has been released and Aerosmith has landed the #7 slot on the upcoming album! "Angel's Eye" will be joining Destiny's Child, Spandau Ballet, Heart, Marvin Gaye and others for the action-packed movie soundtrack.

**Please note that it was reported in an industry trade magazine as "Through An Angel's Eye." However, according to reports published online and offline, the track is called "Angel's Eye."

Steven Remembers Lennon


Steven took part in celebrating the late John Lennon's 60th Birthday. In this week's Rolling Stone (November 9, 2000 issue Al Gore cover), Steven joins a caliber of artists and musicians in "John Lennon Remembered," where thirty-four artists talk about the life and work and where they were when they heard the news of John's death.

"I remember going to write alone up in New Hampshire - to get in touch with my insides. Then, when I heard the news, it was almost too much for my insides to handle. It ripped out a piece of me - I don't know how to say it any other way. I was so angry for so long - I was physically angry for years after that f*cker shot him. It felt good to have a cry because I was so f*ckin' pissed off.

As a kid, I used to go down to [Greenwich] Village all the time and fantasize I was going to bump into one of the Beatles or Stones. I never got to meet John, but I always felt like I knew him anyway. The Beatles taught us to fly, and John taught us to free-fall back to earth. All songwriters ever want to do is crawl inside other people's souls and psyches, and somehow change everything. Jesus, what part of John or the Beatles did not get inside every one of us?"

Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band and how he made it with the Beatles. Sir George spoke inside of Sanders Theatre as a part of Harvard's continued tradition of the Revels, a celebration of changing seasons. After the intuitive lecture, Steven and Joe, switched roles for a moment - going to the green room for an artist meet and greet!
