Listening Post: Tattoo You Edition
A little something extra for you this morning, since I'm slammed with work. When it comes to the soundtrack to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, a lot of the focus has been on Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Karen O's cover of Zeppelin's Immigrant Song. As much as I love that track -- and God do I -- there's a dark horse cover on the record that I've found myself listening to over and over again since first hearing it.
It's the album's closing song: Trent and Atticus's "band" How To Destroy Angels, with Trent's wife on vocals, doing Bryan Ferry's gorgeous Is Your Love Strong Enough -- itself from the soundtrack to the 1985 Ridley Scott film Legend.
It was a fantastic song to begin with and I really like what they've done with it.
