ALFIE

About The Music
Theme music and three original songs written specifically for the film by Grammy winners Mick Jagger and Dave Stewart highlight "Alfie,” and illustrate the various themes running through the movie. Entitled "Old Habits Die Hard,” "Blind Leading the Blind” and "Let's Make It Up,” the songs were recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studio 2 in London, where the Beatles recorded most of their legendary music. In addition, award-winning composer John Powell teamed up with the two rock legends to weave the melodies of the Jagger/Stewart collaborations throughout the picture's musical score.

"There's a stylistic, thematic and visual vibe throughout this film that Mick and Dave have captured perfectly in their songs, and I believe audiences are going to connect with the music in a very personal way,” says director and co-writer/producer Charles Shyer. "It's beyond extraordinary to be working with Mick Jagger --one of my all-time idols. I'm honored that he and someone of the caliber of Dave Stewart agreed to be a part of this film.”

As for how Jagger feels about the project, the Rolling Stones lead singer says that as soon as he saw Shyer's film he was onboard. "I think Charles really brings this guy Alfie's experience to life,” says Jagger. "It's been a pleasure working with him.”

Stewart, of Eurythmics fame, couldn't agree more. "Mick and I had a great time working on the songs for this film, and I've enjoyed being involved in the creative process from day one,” says Stewart. "I think the songs we've written are crafted to fit both the scenes and Alfie's character.”

Mick Jagger has been the lead singer of the Rolling Stones since the band formed in 1962. After more than four decades of writing, recording and performing legendary songs. the Rolling Stones remain the greatest rock and roll band of all time, continuing to play to sold-out concerts around the world. The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

Dave Stewart formed Eurythmics with Annie Lennox in the 1980s. Known for hit songs such as "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” "Here Comes the Rain Auain” and "Missionary Man,” among numerous others, the duo rose to superstardom in the pop music world. Having worked with Jagger before, Stewart has also collaborated with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Carly Simon, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Al Green and Aretha Franklin, to name a few. In addition, Stewart recently co-wrote the popular single "Underneath It All,” with Gwen Stefani of No Doubt.
