Yeah, it does summarize Looper in a way that "White Light/White Heat" summarized Brick.

I found it on this fantastic set by Numero - they essentially find dead soul labels and rerelease their catalogs. I was listening to it over and over in preproduction, I sent Bruce an mp3 of it after we first met.

I had originally temped Sam Cooke's "Bring it on home" (which I was listening to constantly while we were shooting the farm scenes) into the early sequence, but we couldn't afford it, and I'm really happy for that.

What does a song actually cost? between a good one and a good but virtually unknown song?

I remember Donnie Darko couldn't afford a song and had to substitute another. (was it Notorious and Head over Heels?)

Rian actually talked about this back in the Brick days, as regarded the use of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray" over the credits. They managed to get "Sister Ray" for $30k (16% of their total budget, but half the original asking price). Someone asked if the Anton Karas song "I'm in the Middle of a Riddle" (which just played in the background of the Pin's Mom scene) had required royalties, and Rian said that one was somewhere around $5k or $10k.

So, yeah. Songs are fucking expensive.

Holy Moly!

I guess I'll just have to bootleg songs for my film.
Use a false name and pretend I paid someone to secure the legal rights.

Maybe I'll start working on my other script.
My main idea is probably too crazy for anyone to support.
However, the ideas in it are infectious.

That should make viral marketing easy.

Or you could find cool indie musicians and ask to use their work. Just a thought.

That's what I do when I shoot a film. Most indie musicians will say yes. Think genre, not appeal.

Here's a little info on the label:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twinight_Records

Quote:
Twinight Records was a minor American recording label, founded in Chicago 1967 by Howard Bedno and Peter Wright, who later added E. Rodney Jones as a partner. Specializing in R&B and soul music, for a few months the label was called Twilight Records until it was discovered that another company already owned the Twilight name. Over five years, the label released (or at least recorded) 55 singles and charted seven times. The label’s star was Syl Johnson, an established R&B performer who had had a number of hits for King Records and who would have his biggest hits for Hi Records in the 1970s.

In 2012, the song Powerful Love, recorded by Chuck & Mac in 1970, is featured several times in the film Looper.

Not Looper related, but sort of on topic: Rian, how much did the various songs cost for Bloom? There were quite a few famous numbers in that one.

Honestly I can't remember. I remember that the Cat Stevens wasn't cheap.
