Celluloid Diaries: Music that inspired A Good Man

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Music that inspired A Good Man

To celebrate the release of my new supernatural thriller, A GOOD MAN, let's have a look at some of the music that inspired this unforgettable vampire story!

Wax Tailor - Fireflies
Because it mingles so well with the atmosphere of the story, I often listend to Wax Tailor's album In The Mood For Life when writing A Good Man. Fireflies in particular would be a great accompaniment to the beginning – Louis seeing Nathalie for the first time on the street, then entering the bar when the more catchy part of the song starts...


Holly Golightly - My Love Is

I imagine this song playing in the background in one of the scenes where Louis is watching his neighbour, Nathalie. The lyrics summarize well what he feels for this woman, but he knows that his insecurities will prevent him from ever telling her that personally.


Vitalic - Poney

One of Vincent's favorite songs; he often plays it in the bar where he's DJ'ing. The song also eludes the feeling of youth that his older friend, Louis, longs for. It's in strong contrast with the calm, often classical, music Louis listens to at home that reflects his unwillingness to take any risks.


Cinnamon Chasers - Luv Deluxe
Another one of Vincent's favorite songs that he often plays in the bar where he works. The girl in the music video reminds him of his ex-girlfriend Céline.



Chinese Man - I've Got That Tune

I've Got That Tune would be the perfect song for when Louis comes home after his somewhat destastrous date with Martine, drinking wine alone in his apartment. Solitude, loneliness, love... It's all there.


Wax Tailor - Seize The Day

Wax Tailor's Seize The Day has always been the perfect song to accompany the last two scenes of A GOOD MAN. We all know that we should seize the day and enjoy the small things in life without worrying too much about the bigger picture. Unfortunately, most of us realize this when it's too late.



***

Do you like Dexter and American Psycho? Then chances are you will love A Good Man.

Louis Caron is a good man – he's a vegetarian, feeds homeless people, takes care of animals and is converned with the ecological well-being of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire and local detective Taglioni becomes increasingly suspicious of him. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but where he will also destroy the lives of those he cares about.
