In a Late Night Talk with Olivia Wilde segment, Harry Styles and the director of Don’t Worry, Darling discussed the music in the movie.
It turns out that the psychological thriller’s script only made passing mention of a trigger tune that would follow Styles Jack and his wife Alice (Florence Pugh) as they moved through a sinisterly gloomy 1950s neighborhood.
Harry contacted me during preparation and said, What’s the trigger song? What is the melody like? I said I don’t know. I’ll be hiring many authors to compose it. Do you have any specific ideas? Variety was told by the director Wilde. I’ll think about it he added. He emailed me a sample of his piano five minutes later and it was what. He phoned me and asked, What about this? Wilde said. Then I said, ‘Yeah, that’s it. I’m done now. It’s really ridiculous that you completed the task in about five minutes.
Similar to the movie, Styles set out to compose something that could be both charming and frightening, purely dependent on the setting.
When I originally played it on the piano, it reminded me of a handcrafted nursery rhyme, Styles recalled. I believe it takes on a few distinct life when applied to the various scenes in the movie I hope.
And keeping in mind that the Grammy victor doesn’t sing in the film, he tapes dance. I feel like I’ve been trusting that somebody will require a 35-second tap routine from me my entire life, Styles joked.
The ‘Watermelon Sugar’ artist initially supplanted Shia LaBeouf in the film. The ‘Dunkirk’ entertainer’s exhibition on set even prompted chief Wilde to overflow with emotion because of his energetic power as Jack. ‘Harry’ took it to another level ‘Wilde told’ Rolling Stone. He was so completely at the time, that he started shouting the lines to the group, in this base thunder, which was much more extreme than anything we anticipated from the scene.
Wilde proceeded, We were all gobsmacked at the screen. I think even Harry was astounded by it. Those are the best minutes for an entertainer — when you’re totally outside your body.
