All the Pinot Pinot Grigio girls Son of Man 6.61 Highest Score: 10 x2 (@Lost Boy, @ephemeralartery) Lowest Score: 3 x2 (@ohnostalgia, @Aester) My Score: 7.5 Okay but y’all hear the resemblance to Grigio Girls, right? I can’t unhear it since @kalonite brought it up. Phil Collins’ inexplicable stranglehold on the competition finally lets up for a second, and so it’s goodbye to Tarzan’s first dad-rock bop. Honestly, hands up if you thought this soundtrack would survive 45 eliminations before taking a hit? Come through, good taste! Amazing film, amazing soundtrack. Renaissance bias alone was never gonna be enough for it to sail into the upper echelons of the leaderboard unharmed on this anti-male, anti-rock corner of the internet, but it’s put up a damn good fight. Son of Man is that coming-of-age jungle bawp, complete with light, sunny guitars and a funky Clearest Blue Just Can’t Get Enough-esque xylophone (?) breakdown; it’s a better song than Strangers Like Me teebs but hey ho that’s democracy for ya. I do find it a bit odd to have some random, invisible British man singing the songs over the top of my Disney films rather than the characters themselves, but really would you want to hear Tarzan’s attempt, or Jane’s horrid accent polluting what could be a nice enough little ballad? Nah. Honestly, ol’ Phil did a pretty solid job with all his songs for the film, and they stand up well as songs in their own right too, I say as I bop along while writing. Poor it. Maybe the other songs will fare a bit better. Maybe. We’ll open with LKane, who isn’t a fan of our In The Air Tonight hitmaker: “This is not a soundtrack that I would listen without watching the movie. There’s something in Phil Collins voice that I just don’t like.. plus the way he makes music, I just don’t feel it.” I hope you didn’t rate this all chronologically or you had a long way to go, eek. DJHazey sees the funny side of his inescapable presence though: “I'm finding it hilarious that Phil Collins pretty much recorded an entire album and forced it into a Tarzan movie. I'm not going to lie though, this is catchy as fuck.” It’s the Grigio Girl in you, I know it. send photo points out “The soundtrack is very dad rock isn’t it?” which is… harsh, but fair. Poor Joanne. Meanwhile, constantino finds another iconic comparison: “FINALLY, a hook! I still don’t care for [EDIT: PHIL FUCKING COLLINS]’ voice but the almost Fleetwood-esque instrumental pulls it all together.” Yas. MollieSwift21 simply calls it “A jam!”, but Sprockrooster is a bit less enamoured: “Love the beat a lot, but not such a fan of the chorus.” Time for Raichu to bid farewell to kid Tarzan: “Son of Bop. This one has a sort of driving force to it that’s really appealing. Reminds me of running through the jungle. Very catchy.” … How often do you go running through the jungle?
