Kid A Radiohead

Tom Cruise on Radiohead

As you may know, Tom Cruise has spoken a lot about Radiohead and the role their music has played on the filming of his new move Vanilla Sky. Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview:

Is it true that Cameron Crowe played music while taping a scene?
He always did. It started on Jerry Macguire with me; that was the first picture. Cameron is a musician also. He’s a writer, a musician, a filmmaker and we just started playing around one day and he just had music. As an actor you just let it wash over you and see what color it’s going to bring to the scene. He also does stuff where we’re going along and he’ll throw out lines at me, it feels like a workshop when we’re working. Everybody is very comfortable and relaxed and there was a lot of focus on the scene and everyone kind of contributes. It helps the actors and sometimes you get different ideas and colors. For this movie we listened to Kid A a lot and to the U2 album. The Icelandic group (Sigur Ros) too. Of course, the Stones and Bruce Springsteen but a lot of Kid A. Walking through New York I think of U2 and I think of Radiohead.

The soundtrack album to “Vanilla Sky” promises to be no exception. From the title song by Paul McCartney to classic rock, from modern heroes such as R.E.M. and Peter Gabriel to Generation X, Y and Z stars such as Radiohead and Sigur Ros, from Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley to Todd Rundgren and the film’s score composer, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, “Vanilla Sky” paints a musical landscape appealing to the ears of a wide audience.
