Soundtrack Album: Forces of Nature
The unifying themes for "Executive
Album Producer" Robbie Robertson on the song score he assembled for
the screwball comedy
Forces Of Nature are percussion and sex. Whether
he's licensing new covers of old hits (U2 doing "Everlasting Love, " Chris
Tart with "Love The One You're With, " Swervedriver' s "Magic Bus") or
picking newer tunes, Robertson has sought out unusual percussion
tracks, even to the point of using a dance remix of bluesman R.L.
Burnside's "Rollin' & Tumblin'." And provocative remarks abound, with
Touch and Go asking, "Would You ... [go to bed with me]?" and Blue Boy,
"Remember Me [I'm the one who had your baby], " while Faithless's "If
Lovin' You Is Wrong, " detailing of a sexual encounter, is underlain by a
woman's moans. It all makes for a steamy collection, but seems a bit
hard-edged for a romantic comedy.
