V/A (Unknown), Deep Throat [OST] (1972)
I first heard the Deep Throat soundtrack when a reissued CD was released sometime around 2000. Found this – the original soundtrack album from 1972 – recently. It’s an odd mix of country/ish and funk/ish and nearly-psychedelic cornball oddities. And there’s dialogue from the film throughout. It was always a fun soundtrack to play – people suddenly hooked and curious and then (sometimes) ever so slightly appalled by the idea that it was the soundtrack to a porn film. Music’s music right? Shouldn’t really matter where it comes from. No shame. Also the film is kinda funny/kinda awful/not all that shocking (anymore). I would have thought. But the soundtrack album has some cool stuff – I always liked it. Just not a good example of saying “I only watched the film to contextualise the music”. Don’t even bother attempting that line. No one will believe you. (I would have thought).
