Greed Is Still Good For Eno And Byrne

Pitchfork reports that weirdo-pop legends Brian Eno and David Byrne have taken on soundtrack duties for the new Wall Street movie, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. The soundtrack to the 1987 original included tunes from their collabo album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts as well as “Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody)” by Talking Heads, Byrne’s day-job band. This time the pair take over the whole joint, which is great news for Eno/Byrne fans, but disappointing for people who, like me, were craving a reprise of the moment in the first film where Sinatra’s “Fly Me To The Moon” plays over a shot from the p.o.v. of some homeless people looking across NY harbour to the glittering towers of downtown Manhattan. Who says Oliver Stone can’t do subtle?
