Mildred Pierce

2015/12/30 § Leave a comment

“Mildred Pierce” is one of the first songs written by Sonic Youth. Taken from their sixth studio album, Goo, it features dark, frenetic guitar work, and it is also one of the few songs to use standard guitar tuning (an odd thing, indeed). The song gets its name from the 1945 Joan Crawford film, which was based on the novel by James M. Cain.

Its working title was “Blow Job?”.

And yes, that is Sofia Coppola. A much better performance than hers in The Godfather Part III.
