Blade Runner Pop Soundtrack

Blade Runner Pop Soundtrack

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global eclectic chart, 1st in the global soundtrack chart, 1st in the global electro pop chart, 2nd in the global electronic chart and 7th in the global electronica chart.

What if the original Blade Runner film had a pop music soundtrack? Some films have an instrumental score & also an album of pop/rock tunes that were used in the film or inspired by the film. If Blade Runner had such a collection it would sound like this mix.

This all started when listening to Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond part 1. I thought it sounded like it would fit with the Blade Runner score we are all so familiar with. That got me thinking about the question posed at the top of this post. I started collecting tracks & immediately went to Gary Numan & Tubeway Army - Replicas. How could I not use a song called "Replicas"? Likewise from the same album, how could resist the track "Are Friends Electric?"

I got some great recommendations from Mixcloud listeners in this thread - https://www.mixcloud.com/lowlight/posts/pop-tunes-for-blade-runner/ Public Image Ltd., John Foxx, Quieter Than Spiders and New Order came right from those suggestions.

Ha! Loving this! Great interpretation of the BR feeling. Gary Numan really fits that dystopian feel...

This was a fun mix to listen to. It was interesting to imagine different scenes with this music playing in the background.

This is a fantastic mix. Always listening to lowlight, and nice to be taken into new wave territory. More please :)

Jordan, I'm so glad you enjoyed the mix! Oddball diversions like this are always a bit risky so it's cool that you liked it. Cheers!

I just finished listening to several hours of bootleg Pink Floyd, then switched over to this without knowing what the mix's theme was. Wow was I confused at first! Fun idea, really well executed.

Haha! I bet that was a little confusing! Thanks for staying with it, Cheers!

This is a great deviation from your usual and what a pop soundtrack it would have been! Thank you

What a coincidence! I just got back from the library with a copy of Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep and discovered this mix. I’m starting to read and listen at the same time.

Perfect!
