lots of Wagner!
definitely some Can and maybe Lady Gaga
the chafing of tectonic plates. michael jackson’s billie jean.
Timothy Treadwell’s “Last Words”
I cannot imagine but I would definitely ask him to share whatever he listens with me!
herzog on herzog
prob more opera – La Boheme, Madama Butterfly – by Giacomo Puccini.
The sound of his stomach digesting his own shoe. With garlic. And lemon. And Abel Ferrara.
Six hours worth of a hidden mic recording Kinski while he slept.
Lady Gaga for sure..
edit: Just saw someone beat me to this answer 2 hours ago. bah
I bet his number one most played song is ‘Shame on a Nigga’ by WuTang Clan.
All of the above.
I know that him, Wenders, Fassbinder, among others were all associated with the krautrock / experimental german ambient scene during it’s hayday in the 1960’s. Herzog also collaborated with Popul Vuh on a number of his pictures (for instance here’s a piece of the score from Aguirre – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u7vzaqITMA) So, I’m sure he has a lot of music from-
Amon Duul II
Ash Ra Tempel
Van der graaf Generator
and other similar stuff.
Somebody else suggested he listens to John Zorn, and I’m sure they’re right. Both his solo stuff and work with Naked City seems right up Herzog’s alley. And yes I’m sure he also gets down to a lot of both pre 1900’s classical as well as modern classical.
David Bowie’s Berlin-era work + Station to Station
Iggy Pop’s The Idiot
Spectrum, Spacemen 3
Some Phillip Glass
the idiot by iggy is such a fantastic record..
He’d also like the band Suicide. : )
Herzog doesn’t use an Ipod, only cassettes.
Good call on the Melvins btw Auralynn.
he only has 3 songs which are on repeat:
1. momma said knock you out (LL Cool J)
2. full house television theme song (Jesse Fredrick)
3. it isn’t easy being green (as sung by kermit the frog)
@adam_cook: i’ve heard Herzog hates the opera, only i can’t recall on what occasion did i hear it…
Enrico Caruso and soundtracks to Kung Fu films. I doubt he has an iPod though. I think he just walks around with an old Wollesack.
lots of twee pop
A whole lot of Doris Day.
Bach played by some old guy who never smiles.
