Some years ago not so well known girl Lauren Weisberger wrote a book “ Devil wears Prada”. They say, she used to be one of the numerous assistants of one of the editors of some glossy magazine and after she left it (of after she was kicked out of it for some minor offence or something) she wrote the whole story about it as it is. I guess, the film director David Frankel, know for some not very well known movies, made the author of the book completely happy after she found out about his decision to shoot a film. So, her book witnessed a real second birth.
Although, the movie is a far cry from the real world of fashion industry and glossy magazines world as well with a grotesque devil-woman-boss on top, all 19 soundtracks are worth listening.
Being all about modern glamour and fashion, movie is supported by songs, released recently by various singers. Of course, they are Madonna with her new “ I’ m Going to tell you a secret“
and with her old “ Vogue“
, which could be a good anthem for the whole fashion industry. Old and very well known guys, like Bono, Moby and Jamiroquai with their “City of blinding lights”
and “Seven days in sunny June”
accordingly add kind of modernity to the mood of the movie, although some songs were released, let’s say, some time ago.
What is really interesting among these 19 trucks is the songs of almost unknown artists, like my favorite – jazzy lounge remix of a song “Dance Floor (Le D remix)”
by The Tao Of Groove –almost unknown Brazilian artists. This 6 minute song could be a cool background for a pre-party event both in your apartment and in any club as well, nice voice of a female singer, supported by light electronic drums and flute, just simply cool.
Actually, the main instrumental theme by a composer Theodore Shapiro, written specially for the movie is not the one to be enjoyed at the party – I would better put this song in the car, while trying to get to my job in time fighting with the traffic jams, I will definitely not fall asleep, although its end is quite optimistic and even romantic and mild.
As Paris is the key fetish for this fashion world, some French singers also appeared in the list, like Belle And Sebastian band with their “ I Don'T Love Anyone”
- a very light rock and roll music, easy to listen and understand. Another French band Mocean Workers with their funny song in French “Tres Tres Chic”
were totally electronic.
