DJ Tilda Swinton Will Rock Your Goddamn Socks Off
The Goddess known in our puny Earth language as Tilda Swinton was a guest yesterday on KCRW, the Los Angeles-based NPR station famous for having much, much better taste in music than you. She was on a program called The Guest DJ Project, and shared her “internal soundtrack,” to give us mere mortals a glimpse into what the goddess’ brain looks like. I would have guessed there’d be more gamelan and Gregorian chanting going on in there, but it’s still as weird and wonderful and spastic as you’d think.
This was her playlist:
1. Marilyn Manson - Personal Jesus
Swinton also mentioned that she and Marilyn Manson have been talking about doing a film together for years and that “he’s become a friend.” Of course. Of course those two hang out. Consider my mindhole blown.
2. Barry White - You’re the First, The Last, My Everything
Tildz played this as a tribute to Roger Ebert. She told an anecdote about rocking to this song after his death.
The last time I played it was… Roger Ebert used to have, still does, a wonderful film festival in Champagne, Illinois. And when I was there last year, which was only a few days after Roger left us, I told his wife, Chaz, about our film festival, the fact that there was a dance before every screening. When she asked me if I would do it at Ebert fest, I put this on for Roger and we all rocked this.Another mental picture I’ll never get over.
3. David Bowie - Wild is the Wind
She describes her playlist thus far as “kind of this soundtrack that didn’t happen in some piece of work.”
4. Bjork - Mutual Core
The only person stranger than Tilda Swinton.
5. Dewey Cox (John C. Reilly) - Beautiful Ride
Because she’s Tilda F*cking Swinton and if she wants to put Dewey Cox on her internal soundtrack than she’ll damn well do it on repeat.
