The original 1976 record and initial CD versions contain half a magnificent film score, half jazz-lite cover versions of the same music. Bernard Herrmann's soundtrack, full of dark, brooding brass, menacing percussion and a bittersweet dash of jazz saxophone, greatly enhance this big city tale of obsession, paranoia and violence. Robert DeNiro's chilling narration of "Diary of a Taxi Driver" -- including the famous "You talking to me?" monologue -- served as one of the models for the anger and isolation inherent in much of punk music. For some strange reason, the entire first side of the album is devoted to bland covers of Herrmann's music by arranger Dave Blume. Thankfully, Blume's arrangements are unnoticeable in the film itself, but their inclusion here distracts from a powerful soundtrack. Blume's arrangements are firmly rooted in L.A. mid-'70s fuzak, while Herrmann's score is one for the ages.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.

Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Hitchcock: Partners in Crime

From 1955 to 1966, legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrmann worked together on a handful of masterpieces such as Psycho and North by Northwest. An exceptional yet stormy partnership…
