[su_dropcap size=”5″]M[/su_dropcap]usic is such an integral part of the movies that it actually predates audible dialogue by several decades. Even films like The Last Picture Show, which lacks a traditional score, rely on incidental music to help set the atmosphere. On this week’s Cinemavino, we talk about songs that reshape the way we view a movie, and the movies that reshape the way we listen to certain songs.
Along this aural voyage, we sample some delicious vino from Teutonic Wine Company, out of Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. Teutonic features wines named from musical inspiration: Their Jazz Odyssey is taken from the funniest music-based movie ever made, This is Spinal Tap. (I’ll add a correction to the broadcast. This rich, melon-heavy white was so damn delicious, we railed the entire bottle before recording. You can hear the booze hit around the 30:00 mark. At several points, I incorrectly refer to the Jazz Odyssey by another Teutonic offering, the Foiled Cucumber. The Cucumber is also named after a memorable Spinal Tap scene, and I think this leads to my hazy confusion. When you hear us talking about the Cucumber, just think about the Odyssey.)
