More on Steve McQueen: Behind the Music


This just in from one of our Twitter followers in Madison, WI: a super-cool radio show epsiode from WSUM’s Movie Music and Trivia Show that features the music of Steve McQueen films. DJ Catherine Garcia has put together an incredible playlist that reads like a who’s-who of the best talents in film composing world, including Elmer Bernstein, Henry Mancini, John Williams and the inimitable Lalo Schifrin.

Check out the podcast and hopefully it will get you jazzed for our Steve McQueen series which is playing through May 26th.

And even though The Blob didn’t make it into our series, you have got to listen to the first track on this show, from the film:

“Beware of the Blob, it leaps and creeps and glides and slides across the floor…” Too funny!

Awesome piece, guys, thanks for the creativity! And be sure to check out The Sand Pebbles fan site, it’s devoted to “McQueen’s best film” in the site creator’s opinion. You can see The Sand Pebbles here on Monday afternoon, or check out some other films in the series and pick your own favorite.
