Product Description

Product Description

U2/VARIOUS The Million Dollar Hotel (2000 UK 16-track soundtrack CD from the film including the U2 tracks - The Ground Beneath Her Feet Stateless & The First Time plus 3 Bono tracks - Never Let Me Go Falling At Your Feet & Dancin Shoes picture sleeve CID8094)

Amazon.co.uk

The soundtrack to a Wim Wenders joint is often as creative and satisfying as the movie itself (see Until the End of the World and Wings of Desire), serving not only as a companion to the film but as a standalone work of art. The Million Dollar Hotel is no exception, indeed it ups the ante. The film is based on a story conceived and written in part by U2's Bono, and his influence is all over the score. U2 contribute three stunning songs, most notably a collaboration with Daniel Lanois: "The Ground Beneath Her Feet", a soaring pop ballad with lyrics penned by writer Salman Rushdie that stands among the best U2 cuts ever recorded. In addition, Bono joins the all-star "Million Dollar Band" (comprising Mr Fly himself, Daniel Lanois, Bill Frisell, Brian Eno and others) for a host of great tracks, including the ethereal groove of "Never Let Me Go". And if that isn't enough, The Million Dollar Hotel also features a duet between Brad Mehldau and Frisell ("Tom Tom's Room"), a surprisingly smoky cover of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" by model-actress-chanteuse Milla Jovovich and a raved-up, Americanised, Spanish-language version of the Sex Pistol's "Anarchy in the UK" ("Anarchy in the USA") sung by Tito Larriva with the Million Dollar Band. Despite such a wide-ranging host of contributors, Bono's sure hand keeps the album within the same emotional spectrum, coloured by a kind of melancholic longing and a wistful wonder, resulting in one of the best and most original soundtracks ever recorded. --Tod Nelson

The thought of U2's Bono working on the soundtrack for a film to which he co-wrote the story is cringeworthy to many. The unbelievers who espouse an view of Bono (and U2) as self-important kitsch-art lovers is put to rest with this OST. The Wenders film is something of an understated masterpiece, having suffered from Bono's involvement and being seen as a vanity project of both director and co-writer. The soundtrack is as understated as the film. The Million Dollar Hotel band, defined mostly by synths and solo trumpet, provide a unbeatable accompaniment to the films meditation on the concentration of a number of distinct characters.
U2 were rebuilding themselves at the time that 'TMDH' was released and this work-in-process is present in the song 'Stateless' a disctinctly relaxed U2 song which fits perfectly into the narrative of the film. 'The Ground Beneath Her Feet' is another collaboration, this time with writer Salman Rushdie, but a much fuller song which works to a crescendo which make the hairs on the back of many necks stand on end.
This soundtrack, unlike many, avoids dubious filler. The three versions of 'Satellite of Love' are all distinct enough to not feel intransient. Other shorter instrumental tracks, like the reprise to U2 classic 'The First Time', reflect the lethargic atmosphere of the film. This is a great album to lie back and zone out to. The closing track, a Spanish language (I think) cover of The Sex Pistols is the final of innumerous intertextual touches.
If you have not already got the film, then get a hold of it. If you have the film or have seen it, then this album is a must-buy.
