Massive Attack.

So I burned myself up a nice fat tasty MP3 CD of Massive Attack for the car, and after listening to it for a week straight, and after catching House early enough to watch the intro, it occurred to me:

Every single Massive Attack song belongs in a fucking cinematic montage.

I mean, perhaps I've watched Snatch one too many times, but Trip Hop is still de-rigeur grimy ambient filler music. It's just appropriate for everything, from breakups to gunfights and everything in between. And the same shit, too...the aforementioned House opening uses "Teardrop" from 1997's "Mezzanine." I'm pretty sure every song on that CD is in a movie or TV production somewhere.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some Sneaker Pimps to listen to.
