Rolfe Kent's Thank You For Smoking
8-May-2006 - Lakeshore Records has released the soundtrack of Thank You For Smoking. Based on Christopher Buckley's eponymous novel, the story cynically and gleefully sends up the more PC aspects of our times. The first nine tracks are all golden oldies culled from a time - mostly the 1940s and 1950s - when smoke getting in your eyes was considered romantic, not second-hand poisoning, such as the Platters' version of Jerome Kern's "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes"). Those familiar with kd lang's version of "Smoke Rings" will love the Mills Brothers' earlier version from 1932. The last four instrumental tracks consist of Rolfe Kent's original score, maintaining an appropriate lounge-lizardy mood. Buy from Amazon.
