Down the Rabbit Hole: A collection of sites from the internet that inspire or intrigue us. Each site leads to another, creating an endless journey that takes us down into the beautiful depths of the internet. Click through the photo links and escape into our world as we venture: Down the Rabbit Hole.
From French Space Films to San Francisco to Ray Charles, this fourth installment of Down The Rabbit Hole explores our love for film, soundtracks, and 1970’s helicopter rides.
To begin we watch the film “CQ”, a stylish, humorous, sexy film from 2002 paying homage to Barbarella.
The soundtrack of the film was done by the French psychedelic band, Mellow.
One of the founding members of Mellow, Patrick Woodcock, also helped write and arrange a song for fellow electronica chill duo, Air. The track is called “Ce Matin La”.
When we hear this song we imagine a helicopter flying through the skyline of San Francisco in the 1970’s. Don’t ask us why. Just close your eyes, nod your head, and agree with us. Or if you need some help picturing it, here is some actual footage of what we’re talking about.
Speaking of San Francisco, who can forget this 1968, fast-paced, McQueen vehicle, (Pun Intended) “Bullit”
Lalo Schifrin composed the original score titled, “Shifting Gears”.
Here is another McQueen film Schifrin scored. This time teaming up with Ray Charles for, “The Cincinnati Kid.”
And that does it for now. Don’t forget to follow us to get all the latest Arlow Xan updates, including future Down the Rabbit Hole posts. Stay Beautiful.
