HALT AND CATCH FIRE #101 - “I/O”: Needle Drops
Several folks have been asking what music appeared in Sunday’s premiere episode. Here is the full set list of “needle drops” from Episode 101 (much credit due to our fantastic Music Supervisor Thomas Golubic and his team). I linked to online purchase where possible—I think some of these aren’t available! And if you don’t see a song listed here, it means it was an even-more-obscure library track. Happy digging!
And so you know our rule-of-thumb when it comes to music choices in the show: if the song is “diegetic,” meaning it’s coming from within the story, it’s period accurate. If it’s “non-diegetic,” or meant as score, than anything is fair game. How’s that for some classic film school geekery?
Boomtown Rats - “Up All Night” (1981)
Creedance Clearwater Revival - “Lodi” (1969)
XTC - “Complicated Game” (1979)
The Clash - “Magnificent Seven” (1980)
Bonobo - “Cirrus” (2013)
I’ll do this after every episode because we have some pretty great music this season (not to mention our score, which is composed by Paul Haslinger of Tangerine Dream). That way, IF YA CARE, you can assemble a complete soundtrack.

80s music fans, this one’s for you.

I have watched many many films… but there are only only a dozen that I have considered to be truly thought provoking and emotionally moving. THIS is one of those films.
