R2K said...

You know I really like the deadwood songs.

Arjan said...

Deadwood..that's that western series isn't it??

Oh btw..I tried to search for The royal Tenenbaums' and Veronica ...

But I couldn't find them :(
I'll ask around..if anybody can 'hand' me the music it would be appreciated *whistles*

R2K said...

pogues are the shit.

metaclam said...

i think the kazantzidis song is efige efige:

i am not sure where the idea that it's called "ena..." something or other originated.

Arjan said...

hmm I guess you're right, I think I got it from the download title and from Mandel Maven's nest on the wire *see link*

Jeremiah said...

You "guess" Jeremiah deserves credit?

In the “Hamsterdam” episode when Bodie and Slim and Cutty are partying there is some sort of club song playing. I am not talking about “My Life Extra.” This song plays after that. Cutty is being led by two females and it has the same drum pattern as “My Life Extra” but the music changes and Slim nods his head saying Cutty is home. Does anyone know the name of the song and where I can buy it?

Also, does anyone know the name of the song playing in "The Buys" (Season 1 Episode 3.) It is at the end when Fitzhugh is warning McNulty about Daniels. It is playing inside Mcnulty's car, ending in "Oh yeah."

In case you were unaware, a soundtrack was released last week. It's on Rhapsody and also here:
And an accompanying soundtrack:

Arjan said...

@ Anonymous: I'll try to find out.
When you find out you can probably buy it on Itunes or something..
Or find out if it is released on another cd.

@ Boyd:
Thanks! I'll check them out.

I'll be updating The Wire's tracks soon! And I'll check back more often.

Arjan said...

music per episode!
I'll make up a track/link list in a week or 2 (having a busy week next week).

Hey does anyone know in the first series what the song is playing in Orlando's club the first time we see inside, with D'Angelo talking? Sounds like a sort of bluesy bass/keyboard riff with a black singer?

Arjan said...

have you checked my The Wire (all tracks) post? It's in the sideline onder 'Best posts'.
If it's not there, I don't know..
