W. a life misunderestimated
Paul Cantelon, Various Artists
The music soundtrack to Oliver Stone’s controversial biopic about president George W. Bush.
The soundtrack mixes Paul Cantelon’s score with songs that span the life of the 43rd President of the United States, offering a wry commentary on his turbulent times.
From his cowboy image (Hank Thompson’s ‘Shotgun Boogie’ and Willie Nelson’s ‘Mamma Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys’) and his alcoholic era (Freddy Fender’s ‘Wasted Days And Wasted Nights’) to his governorship of Texas (Gene Autry’s ‘Deep In The Heart of Texas’, and Mitch Miller’s ‘Yellow Rose of Texas’) and the invasion of Iraq (Bob Dylan’s ‘With God On Our Side’).
Paul Cantelon has recorded and performed with a wide range of artists including Joe Cocker, The Kinks, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ry Cooder. Other score work include Everything Is Illuminated, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly and The Other Boleyn Girl.
