Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Run Lola Run Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1999)

A high energy soundtrack from a high energy movie. When I first saw this movie in the summer of 2000, I remember I had to pause it to catch my breath because it is so intense. This music has the same effect on me - it wears me out. I have never put this on my iPod and gone for a run while listening to it; I might have to give that a try.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart

Tracks: It's all up-tempo techno/electronica/trance with lots of remixes, so its hard to differentiate between the tracks. The original material by Tykwer/Klimek/Heil owes a lot to Ive's The Unanswered Question (which I think makes a brief appearance near the end of the movie). Some of the better tracks include Believe, Supermarket, and Somebody Has To Pay.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: The soundtrack, of course, reminds me of the movie. Once, when I was watching the DVD, one of my sons (I can't remember which) would pass through the room every so often and at one point said, "That lady is STILL running?"
