Directors Cash In On David Lynch Single Idea
‘Have A Bad Day Today’ – John Carpenter mumbles in a psychotic tone about killing people to his theme from ‘Assault On Precinct 13’.
‘I Wanna Be A Gangster Today’ - Scorsese teams up with Barry Adamson, lyrics sampled from ‘Goodfellas’, naturally.
‘Do You Feel Lucky Today, Punk?’ – you guessed it, Clint just recites that to a wah-wah-infested score by Lalo Schifrin.
‘I’m Not Going To The USA Today’ – Godard spits bile about the Oscars (in French) to lush music by Michel Legrand.
‘Today Is Just Another Day’ – Mike Nichols talks in a droll manner about ordinary lives of quiet desperation in NW1 to kitsch 70s-style library music by Johnny Trunk.
‘Today, No-One Will Hear You Scream’ – Ridley Scott describing the nausea and horror induced by carrying the Alien in your guts to pure noise by Kevin Drumm (surely a great advert/tie-in for the Alien prequel he’s making).
‘Burn A Christian Today’ – Robin Hardy croaks a pagan ritual chant to music by Demdike Stare.
