And what will everybody remember from this one? In all likelihood, the three-note piece by Ligeti, which sounds like the tinkering of a child who has not yet begun to discover the joys of the other dozens of keys on a piano. This piece works amazingly in the film, but on it's own, it's dull as a spoon and twice, at that! As for me, I rather like the "Waltz" by Shostakovich.
Again, an instance of Kubrick choosing music that fits the film like a glove, but this time, it's a piece that is actually enjoyable outside the film. Who would have thought?
There's actually a fairly amusing story behind Shostakovich's calling the piece a "Jazz Suite," but I'll not go into that. As for the other jazz on the album, it passes without incident, really nothing bad at all, but nothing extraordinary. As for Liszt, I'd sooner take his symphonic poems than the solo piano piece, "Grey Clouds".
Additionally, I really don't recall where the piece on the album played in the film. So what's left? Chris Isaak's "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" is a blast - and far and away the most accessible thing on this album which is arguably the ultimate example of Kubrick's fickle and diverse musical tastes.
