The Soundtrack

One day someone will make a full feature movie about the life of L Ron Hubbard and how he created the Church of Scientology. How would the story go, what title should it have, what should and should not be included, who could make it, who would play the different roles? Add your inspirational thoughts here.

The Soundtrack

Post by Post Person » Sun Apr 15, 2007 4:28 am

What songs would be included in the soundtrack to the movie?

Lo Fidelity Allstars - Battleflag
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
A Perfect Circle - Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums
Bruce Cockburn - If I Had a Rocket Launcher
Devo - Freedom of Choice
The Police - Every Breath You Take

Any other suggestions?

Thank you for Listening, or is it called L'envoi?

It would be sure to have impact!

Getting the rights to use the song and performance would be impossible.

Please, use Thursday at Two. You'll find it elsewhere in a thread in Opinions and Debates.

You will also find a number of excellent parodies, though you will have to get the rights to the originals.

Since the sixties were a big time for scientology's growth it should be set in the sixties and there are all kinds of good stuff for the soundtrack:

Mr. Tambourine Man
For What's it's Worth
White Room
Communication Breakdown
White Rabbit
Who Put the Bomp
I Will Folllow Him
Leader of the Laundromat
You Don't Own Me
I Started a Joke
Wooden Ships (this song over the end credits)

They could make it like 'American Graffiti" where the soundtrack carries on right through the movie.

And of course Billy Idol's 'Mony, Mony' would have to be included....not that it fits.....it's just a great track! :D

In Somebody to Love, the first line is:

When the truth is found to be lies.

Good line. But the line from Hubbard to his followers and from his PR people is that everything the critics say is lies. So:

When the lies are found to be truth.

But I haven't figured out where to take it from there.

Well...in terms of dedicated scienos and SO members and everyone who actuallly really thought that their lives were truly being dedicated to help this planet, the second line can remain as is:

"And all the joy within you dies"

(Actually..'Somebody to Love' would be a good theme song for someone who voluntarily left scientology after waking up.)

I think "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord" with "Ron" or "LRH" substituted in for "Lord". They could also get into the fountain just like in Godspell and prance around and then momentarily begin hypnotically doing some Chinese school at which point Ron appears only to be seen by Miscavige. :lol:

How about the classic porn music....bom chickabombom to be played everytime somebody signed a check over to the cult, gave them cash, or paid for a book or any services with a credit card....that way the audience knows that somebody is about to get screwed.

I'm afraid that I don't know anything about 'porn music' so I can offer no viewpoint here.

'Presence of the Lord' should definitely be included:

'I have finally found a way to live just like I never could before
And I know I don't have much to give, but soon I'll open every door
Everybody knows the secret, everybody knows the score
I have finally found to place to live in the presence of the lord..'

Back in the sixties there were millions who knew that things weren't quite right but we didn't quite know who to turn to. There had to be a better way and a better future.......many of us came across 'scientology' and I guess it was like a magnet. Here seemed to be the obvious solution to personal enlightenment, as well as leaving the planet a better place than when we entered it. We were too young...too naive..and too idealistic to think that a madman would be willing to use the beauty of a child's dreams to simply fatten his bank account. This kind of perversity was simply not part of our mindset....we believed that mankind was good.....and were sucked in to a scam created by a man who used that innocence and belief. I'm sure Eric Clapton was not writing about us...but we did believe that we had found a way to live...that we were going to open every door...... and that we were living in the 'presence of the lord'.

And now...after experiencing this deceit... the anger.....and the sorrow seeps in so deeply that I can well understand that for many 'scientologists' and 'OT's'.....the only answer seems to be suicide. Their view and mindset seems to be explained by lyrics that are, interesting enough, from the same album:

"Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
and I'm wasted and I can't find my way home."
