Soundtracks

Watching the South Bank Show about Joan Didion, there’s a sequence of scenes of student disorder in San Francisco in the late 60s. The soundtrack chosen for this was a track from archetypal New Yorkers, the Velvet Underground, specifically, Shiny Boots of Leather. Didn’t this strike anyone as odd, or inappropriate? It’s like accompanying film of the Brighton Conservative Conference with Ghost Town by the Specials.

On second thoughts, not.
