Soundtrack Of Your Life #11: New Jack City

Am I my podcast’s keeper? Yes I am..

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 11, for the first time, Corey welcomes 2 guests at once. First there is Petula Neale, a local film fan who in her own words rightfully proclaims: “Gives good voice” . Additionally welcome David Voigt, a critic within Toronto for many years who recently has started up his own site, In The Seats. We bring them together as both have chosen 1991’s New Jack City, a goofy Scarface-influenced crime film with a soundtrack loaded with big rap & R&B hits, but more importantly the influential fusion genre of new jack swing. Tune in for discussions of explicit lyric stickers, hiding tastes from friends, hanging around the wrong crowd, and trying to find any crowd at all.
