Rob Pattinson's Playlist

>> 2009/06/07

C-Jam Blues by Oscar Peterson“What I learned how to play blues riffs from. Peterson was the best”




Solid Sender by John Lee Hooker“If I could have a song as a wife…”




Soft by Kings of Leon“I’ve always thought that I really relate to the lyrics of this even though I don’t really know what they are. I love the singer’s enunciation in all their songs. They are pretty much the only modern band I can say I am a fan of.”




Cold Sweat by James Brown - “This song hits me just as hard every time I’ve heard it since I was a little kid and listened to James Brown on the way to school.”




Dean by Terry Reid“I love Terry Reid. I love the schizophrenic decisions he makes towards the end of the song when he’s choosing what notes to sing. Terry Reid was just one of those guys like James Brown who when they got into a groove, it just seemed like they’d want to keep singing the same line, let alone the same song, all night.”




Stepping Out Queen, Pt. II by Van Morrison -"Another guy who has such a visionary and unique take on what structure in songwriting is, what singing is, and what can be achieved emotionally and spiritually through music."




“Lengths” by The Black Keys: “Another new band I like. This is a beautiful song. I like how it’s produced. This whole album is great.”




One Mo’gin by D’Angelo“I love D’Angelo. I used to always try and sing like him when I was younger and embarrassingly fail. I like his pronunciation when he sings. I think when you try and write lyrics and you think there is no way the listener will figure out what you’re saying or what you mean, you write much more honestly. I think.”





Blue Monday People by Curtis Mayfield
“Got inspired by putting D’Angelo on. This whole album is amazing. The production on it is incredible. A really interesting album which not a lot of people listen to. Don’t know why”




Brown Trout Blues by Johnny Flynn“I grew up with some amazing musicians in London who are still my friends. Marcus Foster, Bobby Long and Sam Bradley are recording their albums now, but Johnny Flynn completed his one a while ago. I just saw him play in LA and he was incredible. But he’s always been incredible so I can’t say I was surprised. Get this album its great and no one else does music like him at all.”




Ambulance Blues by Neil Young“One of the most moving songs ever written or recorded. I used to listen to the line ‘I guess I’ll call it sickness gone’ on repeat for hours when I wanted to try and write something.”




A Whiter Shade of Pale by King Curtis - “Just a beautiful song. Reminds me of Withnail and I.”




Ruby’s Arms by Tom Waits“My favorite Tom Waits song. I cry almost every time I hear it. Plays over an amazing scene in one of my favorite movies too – Prenom Carmen.”



(First) Essay for Orchestra, Op. 12 by Atlanta Symphony OrchestraThis song just hurts, it’s so beautiful.”




T.B. Sheets by Van Morrison“Only Van Morrison can do a performance like this. No one else has come close.”
