Atomic Blonde Soundtrack Revealed

Charlize Theron has transitioned from a beautiful dramatic actress to one of the sexiest bad ass action heroes going today.   Mad Max: Fury Road, The Fast And The Furious 8, and now Atomic Blonde have established the 41 year old South African actress in rare Hollywood territory of a strong female lead actress that can bring major box office numbers in an action film.   Atomic Blonde opens today and from the trailer we can expect a rollercoaster of high energy thrills.   A freezer door to the head, a secret gun in an ice bucket, flipping cars, throat punches, and a red spiked stiletto heel becoming a weapon and that’s just in the two minute movie preview!

Directed by David Leitch who also directed the upcoming Deadpool 2 sequel  The official soundtrack is a 80s New Wave and Alt-Rock fan’s dream playlist with a few modern day covers that only amplify the intensity of the originals.    Here’s the official Atomic Blonde soundtrack:

1. Cat People (Putting Out the Fire) – David Bowie
2. Major Tom (Völlig Losgelöst) – Peter Schilling

3. Blue Monday – Health
4. C*cks*cker – Tyler Bates
5. 99 Luftballons – Nena
6. Father Figure – George Michael
7. Der Commissar – After the Fire
8. Cities in Dust – Siouxsie and the Banshees
9. The Politics of Dancing – Re-Flex
10. Stigmata – Marilyn Manson & Tyler Bates
11. Demonstration – Tyler Bates
12. I Ran (So Far Away) – A Flock of Seagulls
13. 99 Luftballons – Kaleida
14. Voices Carry – Til Tuesday
15. London Calling – The Clash
16. Finding the Uhf Device – Tyler Bates


The song garnering the most attention so far is Health’s cover of “Blue Monday” by New Order.  The song is used predominantly in the movie trailer and like Orgy’s cover in the late 90s, they turn up the intensity big time!    Kaleida (who also appeared on the John Wick 2 soundtrack) takes on Nena’s “99 Luftballoons” and even Marilyn Manson shows up on the soundtrack covering “Stigmata” by the industrial band, Ministry.    What’s missing on the final version?   “Personal Yeezus”, the masterful mashup of Kanye West and his song, “Black Skinhead” with Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” is most shocking to be neglected.  “Just Like Heaven” by the Cure, and two Queen songs, “Killer Queen” and “Under Pressure” with David Bowie also didn’t make the final cut of the album.   But maybe they’re waiting on the film to become the next summer blockbuster and they’ll release a special deluxe version with the missing tracks?
