Ripley and Mad Max Making Out to Vangelis

Michael Doyle over at Burnlab reports, “I stumbled across this clip from The Year of Living Dangerously this morning while doing a search for Vangelis [the seminal electronic music composer responsible for the Blade Runner score]. Ripley and Mad Max making out to Vangelis = awesome.” Aww!

Ripley and Mad Max making out to Vangelis = awesome.

    YUMMERS. The only thing missing is Nutella.

    Also! This movie has the always wonderful Linda Hunt in it, playing a male Chinese-Australian photographer. First woman ever to win an Oscar for playing a role of the opposite sex. Love her!

    LOVE Vangelis. he literally breaths aural gold.
    someone needs to isolate the Vangelis sound and bottle it.

    I’m an especially big fan of Vangelis’ solo work (and wonderfully titled) “Soil Festivities” as well as the touching and minimal soundtrack for the French documentary “L’Apocalypse des Animaux”.

    One album I never have tired of is his first solo album simply titled “Earth”. I could carry on about the many influences from around the globe it embraces and the many artists who have since taken from its rich and layered tapestry.
