Moaner question
 
I was wondering, was "Moaner" written specifically for Batman & Robin, the way "Oh" and "8 Ball" were for their respective movies? Does anyone know?

Also, I wonder if the band, flush off their breakout success with Trainspotting, was all excited at the prospect of being included in a "big ticket" project like Batman & Robin? And then when they saw the movie, were they like, "oh crap..."

I'm pretty sure that Moaner began as a Batman-specific track. However, in that moment of horror in seeing George Clooney in all his rubber-nippled glory, fighting Arnold Schwarzenegger to the backing of their song, they decided to make it a Beaucoup Fish track.

LOL!

i get your drift. But if memory serves, "Moaner" plays during the motorcycle street race with Alicia "Clueless" Silverstone. It's also not audible enough to drown out the lousy dialog.

I read somewhere that Moaner came off the remix of U2s Mofo.
Maybe the infamous mix does sound like Moaner

"8 Ball" i kind of figured was specifically for The Beach, esp. given the vibe of the other tracks on that ST.
But i didn't know "Oh" was specifically for "A Life Less Ordinary" - i have the soundtrack, and it's quite eclectic, and to me "Oh" sounds a bit of a throwaway? Were the boys really "inspired" by this so-so movie to write it?

agreed - i'm pretty sure moaner was out long before BF, (and before the kittens download?), so when BF was released moaner was a bit of an old track stuck on the end. i recall lots of us on the forum also being a bit disappointed that it fades out early to fit on the cd... :)

Apologies; I was just trying to make a general statement about the film.
