"You Want It Darker" - Tin Star

Postby ScottM » Tue Sep 12, 2017 11:32 am

The British drama series "Tin Star" set in the Canadian Rockies. In Episode 4 - "Jack": After some very traumatic events, Tim Roth's character, the alcoholic police chief Jim Worth, has gone off the rails and is getting blind drunk in his local bar. The scene is accompanied by Leonard's "You Want It Darker".
It worked really well in conveying Jim's mood and overall sense of loss, despair and anger.
For those of you who can access Sky TV, all episodes of the first series of "Tin Star" are available for download.

Just visiting my brother and we were talking over the sound of the TV when I heard a very familiar voice ;-)

Yes, you've guessed it was Leonard with "You Want It Darker" from the above mentioned TV series Tin Star, season 1, episode 4 - http://www.lyricsoundtrack.com/tv-shows ... ngs-music/

Sometimes things can take a little longer to get to Australia :)

We know this song was also included in "Peaky Blinders" and "Assassin's Creed Originals" and just for the record, because I can't find it mentioned anywhere at all on the forum, it's also featured in "Billions" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Want_It_Darker_(song)
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!
