Why Doesn't Richard Linklater Get More Credit for His Music Choices Especially with Dazed and Confused (1993)? w/MJ of Ménage with the MariJayne Maven Podcast

MJ from the Menage with the MariJayne Maven Podcast is our guest this week as we talk about the classic 1993 Richard Linklater film, Dazed and Confused, which launched a bunch of acting careers and is known for having one of the best film soundtracks of all time. We talk about some of our favorite songs from the soundtrack, a controversial cover that Linklater vetoed, and we ponder how the soundtrack uses so many well known songs without becoming cheesy. We also talk about the casting of “local actor”, Matthew McConaughey.
