Kitchens of Distinction was a dream-pop / new wave band that made a bit of a splash on college radio in the late 80s. I remember them fondly, and if you like Crowded House, Dream Academy or INXS, you'd probably dig them. Anyway, KoD's guitarist Julian Swales posted his 20 favorite filmscores (why? I'm not quite sure) and while some of the choices are expected, theres a couple of unexpected ones in the mix...

And just in case anyone is interested in KoD (seeing as they're putting out their first album in 20 years) here was probably their biggest hit from around 1989 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JXk_oV4nbo

Picking Star Wars is stupendously boring.

KoD.... Gods but I haven't heard of them in what feels like a millennia. I liked both them and Dream Academy though neither were particularly huge here in the UK.

I like his choices too, sure, some are 'the usual suspects' but great is great and there's no changing that.

You are in high form today Lehah.
How did you conceive of your brilliantly middle school response?
What does it mean?
I am pretty sure you do not have a clue about either, your comments often emerging gratuitously and involuntarily like a guttural explication, a cough, a sneeze, a comment on the FSM board.

You're just not going to let Kitchens Of Distinction go, are you, man? Haha

I don't think I've EVER heard of them, but the man has come up with a good and perfectly valid list. There's something for most people there, even the ones who generally grumble if their favourite doesn't make the cut...

They're a London band TG, I believe they had more success in the US than they did in the UK.

Timmer, my friend, you have plenty of better things to do than to try to educate me about popular beat combos - but I appreciate the effort.

big grin

TG, I spent quite a few years in the early 00's going to a regular Tuesday night pop quiz, it was damned good fun and occasionally there was even the odd film music round ( of which, of course, I always excelled in wink ), the downside, if you can call it that, is that I learnt loads of stuff about various bands, artists, albums, singles etc that I have no interest in at all but is still stuck in my memory banks.

Just put him on ignore and be done with it. The actions of bullies speak for themselves and they are not worthy of consideration until they have apologized to all parties they have wronged, shown some humility and remorse, and have shown they are actively willing to change their ways for the better.

Never heard of the band, but the list is as good as anyone else's, I guess. Glad to see him mix the classics with the odd. Shows a bit of versatility.

I hate to say I read that in Montalbon's smooth "Rich Corinthian Leather" voice.

Interesting list with some usual suspects and some rather esoteric picks.

What is funny is to read the responses below this list. One person said he expected The High And The Might by maybe Les Baxter. Uhmmm, well, okay.

And that genuinely made me laugh out loud.

No, it's "Oh, the bronyry!" Dammit. I really wanted that to work.

Close Shaun, it made me half-laugh.
