“If I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution.” Emma Goldman
MTV’s new show, Sweet/Vicious, is definitely a revolution of sorts, and we want in!
If the relevant and significant subject matter of kickass heroines isn’t enough to grab your attention, the soundtrack surely will!
Due to the skillfully curated tunes, and overflowing with excitement for tonight’s second episode, today’s Tunesday is all about Sweet/Vicious.
Writer, creator and co-executive producer, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, had this to say about the role music plays throughout the show: “Music has always been extremely important to me. I think a good soundtrack elevates film and television, so it was imperative that music be a huge part of this world. We want to be a platform for introducing new artists and songs because what better network to be able to break new music than MTV!?”
We couldn’t agree more!
The script, with all of its biting humor and quick wit, definitely stands on its own. But when you combine it with expertly-timed tracks, viewers are elevated to a greater, deeper and more engrossing entertainment experience.
Episode 1: The Blueprint, contained songs like “The Last Artful, Dodgr” by Squadron, “I like Tuh” by Carnage/ILoveMakonnen, and even the classic… “Defying Gravity” by Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth. However, one of my favorite musical moments was in the final scene when “I Know There’s Gonna Be Good Times” by Jamie xx Feat. Young Thug plays as our two heroines realize they may be in some deep shit.
Each song sounded like it was produced for this episode, and if the first one is any indication of what is to come, we can’t wait for 10pm tonight!
