Jack Jones – I’ve Got Your Number

(click song title above to listen)

Remember that scene from American Hustle when Christian Bale and Amy Adams danced and lip sync’d to “I’ve Got Your Number”? We loved all of it, the scene, the choice of song, that sweet comb-over, and the rest of a stellar soundtrack!

Released on December 13th, 2013, David O. Russell’s American black comedy crime film won three Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Amy Adams for Best Actress, and one for Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress. The soundtrack features classic songs by ELO, Wings, Chris Stills, Tom Jones and more (read a great interview with Music Supervisor Susan Jacobs HERE). Jack Jones appears as himself/night club singer in the film and recorded the Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh standard in one afternoon and shot the scene the next day. Jones, who became a major jazz and pop singer in the 1960s, recorded numerous Coleman compositions over the years starting with one of our faves, “Real Live Girl” from his 1963 album, She Loves Me for Kapp Records.

This week’s top tune was originally written for the hit 1962 Broadway Musical, Little Me has been recorded over the years by the likes of Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, and Jill Sobule.

Jon Brion – Knock Yourself Out

Today’s Top Tune is a song most will know from David O. Russell’s “existential comedy” I ♥ Huckabees. Huckabees was, of course, scored by Jon Brion – and he contributed this song to soundtrack of the film, which featured a incredible ensemble cast including Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Walhberg.

In addition to I ♥ Huckabees, Jon’s film scoring credits include Hard Eight, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Break-Up, Synecdoche, New York, Step Brothers, Glago’s Guest, The Other Guys, The Future, and two films scheduled for release this year: the 3D stop-motion animated comedy thriller adventure ParaNorman, and Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up “sequel” This Is Forty.

On the “pop” side of his career, Jon has worked as a writer and/or producer for the diverse likes of Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Aimee Mann, Katy Perry, Rufus Wainwright, Elliott Smith, Spoon, Best Coast, Of Montreal, Dido, and Keane, to name but a few. His semi-regular gigs at his LA home Largo at the Coronet remain consistent sellouts – his next performance is set for March 30. If you live in or are visiting the LA area, come down and see why these shows have become the stuff of legend.

Be sure to check out the awesome video for “Knock Yourself Out” featuring Jon with two of Huckabees‘ stars, Jason Schwartzman and Mark Wahlberg, by clicking HERE or on the video screen grab, below.
