As a music supervisor, you learn to embrace the best of every genre, and I really have to say there's nothing that I'm embarrassed of.
I listen to music two ways: As a person, you have an instinctive, personal, emotional response. But as a music supervisor, you have a secondary response, which is, 'Will this sit well under dialogue?' 'Can people die to this?' 'Can people kiss to this?'
I think it's important to remember that music supervision is not just about a fantastic record collection or knowledge of music, although that certainly helps for aspiring music supervisors.
I think that 'The Sopranos' uses music incredibly well.
I was crazy for music as a high school kid and a college kid.
