CMF Music

We ladies of CMF love “flicks,” but like the diamonds that ultimate FlickChick, Marilyn Monroe, so famously sang about in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, we are multifaceted!

As we branch out into other areas of the entertainment industry, we are going to try to give you as much information, and show you as much nifty stuff as we can! So enjoy the pictures, videos, music rec’s, and blog posts that you will find here on the CMF blog, on the CMF Tumblr, and on our Twitter feeds! In case you forgot, tweet us at: @chickmakesflick, @fauxgoraphobe, & @bareftcineaste

Now, about us and our relationship to music…


I’m listening to the new Amos Lee album right now and just commented that I think I would like the Citizen Cope version better, and then BOOM! Lucinda Williams joins in on a duet called “Clear Blue Eyes” and I’m all LUCINDA WILLIAMS! for a few minutes until a Willie Nelson reprise of the first song (El Camino) comes on and I’m all WILLIE NELSON!

Which is funny, because yesterday I was all January 2011 Hollister In-Store Play List Surfer Dude Teeny Bobber music.

And the day before that I was trying to figure out which exact Professor Longhair song I should use as a soundtrack to this video I’m making for this story I’m writing.

Which is a long way of saying that I really like any music – especially ESPECIALLY if it’s not lost in production. I like things that sound handmade and that they trust themselves enough to let it be real.

Currently, I’m focused on The Avett Brothers, Scissor Sisters, Bruno Mars (don’t judge me), Janelle Monae, Petula Clark, Raphael Saadiq and the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts, and I LOVE music soundtracks, and homemade playlists based on a theme of my choosing. I made a playlist of Bill Murray Music based on “Lost in Translation,” “Life Aquatic” (one of my favorite movies of the last bunch of years), “Broken Flowers,” “Royal Tenenbaums,” and “Dharjeeling Express.”

I guess what all these have in common is that they make motion for me – whether it’s by making me want to sing, dance or swoon. Sometimes the motion is that it makes me want to lie on the couch and listen.

If you’d like my itunes list, I think (at last count) it has 3 weeks of music on it from end to end. This scares the bejeebus out of me.


Like my taste in film and television, my taste in music runs the gamut… and I’m pretty sure Chickmakesflicks and Fauxgoraphobe would say the same. I have eclectic taste, and like a bit of everything… I like to say ipod is schizophrenic, but in a good way! On shuffle it could go from Ella Fitzgerald or Jason Mraz, to Linkin Park, Shannon Curfman or Priscilla Ahn, The Kooks, or Van Morrison, from Red Wolf (a Native American drum group) or ABBA to Jonny Lang, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy or Muddy Waters, from D’angelo or Uffie to CCR or Skynyrd, from Eminem, Eve, Nas, or Jay-z to Dave Matthews or Grateful Dead, from Joplin (Janis or Scott) to Mingus, to Timberlake, to Angels & Airwaves, to Dixie Chicks, to Fiona Apple, Plumb, Flogging Molly, to some random indie band or the He-man or Jem & the Holograms theme song… Ska, bluegrass, rock, jazz, hip-hop, classic rock, reggae, blues, alternative, soul, bossa nova, classical, punk… you get the idea, you name it, I pretty much like it… At the least, I can deal until a song I like better comes on! : )

Here are a couple videos I have be loving on Youtube for the last 5 or 6 months, check out this band with awesome MusicChick & lead singer, Rachel Beauregard! They’re called Deep River!  Click the link to read an article that Paste Magazine recently did on them, and enjoy the videos (and seeing Bryan Dawley’s steel guitar… sooo pretty)!

(eta: They recently changed their name to Native Run)
