The Firm [2009 Soundtrack] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Nick Love's film The Firm is actually a remake of an excellent 1980s British television movie that uses the metaphor of football hooliganism as a meditation on the economics and mentality of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as Britain's Prime Minister. Love's remake has taken the politics from the film and focused instead on the notion of the issues facing young men, peer pressure to belong, and comes at the original script from the personal rather than the political. The soundtrack chosen is an interesting one.

Nick Love's film The Firm is actually a remake of an excellent 1980s British television movie that uses the metaphor of football hooliganism as a meditation on the economics and mentality of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as Britain's Prime Minister. Love's remake has taken the politics from the film and focused instead on the notion of the issues facing young men, peer pressure to belong, and comes at the original script from the personal rather than the political. The soundtrack chosen is an interesting one. While Love claims that the music he chose was right from the streets during 1984, it seems that it was chosen instead right from the charts in the late '70s and early '80s. Almost everything here is post-disco soul and funk: Rick James' "Super Freak," Jermaine Jackson's "Let's Get Serious," the Fatback Band's "I Found Lovin'," and edited versions of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love," Yarbrough & Peoples' "Don't Stop the Music," Cameo's "Word Up!," Zapp & Roger's "Computer Love," etc. There are also a couple of pop and rock-oriented tracks for balance in Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" of course, the Jam's "A Town Called Malice," and Nik Kershaw's "Riddle." The music doesn't necessarily fit the time period, and there is nary a football chant in the soundtrack. Therefore, this is less a soundtrack about football than it is a compilation of hits from the general era.
