Being able to mix it up is what makes you great. Coolio and L. Not to disrespect anybody, but take someone like Jay-Z. Being able to become a billionaire, coming from nothing. I will give all things due him for that.
That battle they had, Nas won that, no question. Even with his biggest hit celebrating its 25th anniversary, Coolio is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. I just did a song with Too Short and Spice 1. The way he works is swapping features: he does one of yours, you do one of his, and no money is exchanged.
But who knows, I might take a chance and do an old-school album with interludes and skits and everything. I had a period where I think I went through a depression without really knowing it. Despite such hallowed competition, four movie soundtracks also topped the Billboard chart that year. Two were family-friendly Disney behemoths: Pocahontas and The Lion King , the latter still powering from the previous year.
The other chart-topping soundtracks, for the Michelle Pfeiffer vehicle Dangerous Minds and the stoner comedy Friday , were no one's idea of kids' entertainment. Beyond those No. At that price, a soundtrack needed major star power or an undeniable concept. For movie studios and musicians alike, the format was rich with opportunity. However, there was no certain formula for success.
Some soundtracks were guided by a single producer, while others drew on a grab bag of then-current songs. Several featured one clear hit that eclipsed the soundtrack, or occasionally the movie itself.
For all their differing approaches, the soundtracks of epitomized the energy and audacity of the decade, while also establishing tropes for the next 25 years.
The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album set the bar high for the decade. With a week reign at No. While The Bodyguard magnified their commercial potential, movie soundtracks like Quentin Tarantino 's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction framed the medium as an artistic showpiece.
Throughout the '90s, Tarantino and fellow indie auteurs Paul Thomas Anderson , Richard Linklater and Spike Lee made music a key character in their films. Both instincts, for commercial returns and artistic validation, were well-represented in Batman Forever epitomized the big-budget, mass-appeal mid-'90s soundtrack.
First, only five songs on the track list appear in the movie itself, ushering in a rash of "Music From And Inspired By" soundtracks. Meanwhile, Coolio 's " Gangsta's Paradise ," featuring singer L.

Loeb will be commemorating the event on Saturday, September 26, with her "One Night Only World Tour" —a special two-show live streaming event where she will perform the entire album acoustically for the first time in her career.
Lisa Loeb: Since Tails was my first major-label album, like a lot of artists in that position, it was an assembly of songs that I had written over the previous few years that I now wanted to share with a larger audience. Some of the songs I was most excited about re-recording or working into a fuller band context had already appeared on other recordings I had made.
That was not just the case with Tails , but also with my next album, Firecracker. When I was making records back in college, I knew it was time to make a new album every time I had a collection of 12 to 14 new songs. So, the biggest focus of that time period was just buckling down and recording them for my new album. Juan and I tended to go deep into the production side of things. We wanted it to feel easy and natural, but we also had very specific ideas of what it should sound like.
We were very intense about the whole process. Plus, since it was my first major-label album, we bought into all the stories of our favorite bands and felt like it was such a big deal.

So sometimes I was treated like a pop artist, which, back then, there was more of a divide between indie and pop than there is today. I also liked David Geffen as an entrepreneur and his feel for making a major label feel like a boutique label. The song quickly became a Top 20 Billboard hit and Loeb performed it alongside "Stay" on a Chevy Chase-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live less than two weeks after Tails was released.
There was always something very sparkly in her videos. My sister and I worked with Sophie and came up with a concept that was originally a little more abstract than the finished product turned out to be. I was working with a designer so that I could get my clothes exactly the way I pictured them, so I was completely involved in making and wearing the clothes I wore in that video. So, Juan and I went back in and re-edited it. Loeb followed up the success of "Do You Sleep?Přední strana CD obalu (cover) k albu A Different Beat ve formátu PDF.
