Dillon Francis made a playlist in case he's ever in a 'Goonies' remake

Posted on

Dillon Francis 03

Like any good act worthy of being called an overnight sensation, artist/DJ/producer Dillon Francis has seemingly materialized out of nowhere after many years of hard work. His debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, is due out Oct. 28 (pre-order is available here) and anticipation has been steadily growing as he’s toured with his Mad Decent label-mates all summer. An open-format electronic DJ, Francis’ debut effort includes many cross-genre collaborations, including DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Twista, Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie, The Presets and Major Lazer.

EW reached out to Dillon asking him, like those who’ve come before him, to make us a playlist—any occasion, any theme, any format. In return, Dillon gave us this: “Songs to listen to if me, Michael Fassbender, Shailene Woodley, and Chloe Moretz starred in the remake of Goonies.” His musical selections and commentary are below.

Phoenix, “Trying To Be Cool”

“This has been one of my all time favorite songs for a lonnnnggg time and I think it would fit perfect for the new movie score, has such a fun ‘let’s find treasure’ vibe.”

Galantis, “You (Brillz remix)”

“Love the original, but this remix is amazing and could totally be a part of the chase scene when The Fratellis are trying to get the gang.”

Porter Robinson, “Lionhearted”

“AAHHHHH this song is so amazing… one of my favorite Porter Robinson songs ever! His album is amazing too!! This could def be the ending song for the movie when we save the goon docks!”

Fitz and the Tantrums, “Out of My League”

“This song has such a good classic vibe to it and the hook is pure magic! This could be the part where Brand sees Andy and doesn’t know if he can take her out cause he didn’t get his license.”

David Guetta, “Lovers on the Sun”


“A lot of people give this song flak but it reminds me of Ennio Morricone so how can I not like it???? I LOVE IT IT’S MY GUILTY PLEASURE F— YOU I AIN’T EMBARRASSED! Also would be soooo good for the scene where they all get through the piano of death part and have to get on the water slides to find One Eyed Willy’s boat!”

Wye Oak, “Shriek”

“I love how much this song makes it still feel like summer! So happy soooo freee…This would also be a great song for when everyone is finding treasure on One Eyed Willy’s boat and everyone is just smiling sooooo big and rejoicing cause they think they won.”

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Heads Will Roll (A-trak remix)”

“This song is a staple for every DJ…I hear this almost every night and am never mad…ALSO I know I’m back tracking but this could be for the intro chase scene of The Fratellis and the cops!”

CAZZETTE, “Sleepless”

“I don’t know where the f— this song would go in the movie, maybe it wouldn’t but f— I love this song it’s soooo well done and full of feeeeeeeels!”

Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne, “Rather Be”

“This song might be over-played on the radio but who cares, for the movie it will dominate cause it’s got such a young ‘Let’s just run around and cause mischief and hold hands’ vibe and that’s the feels I want in the Goonies remake! “NO PLACE I’D RATHER BE THAN THE GOON DOCKS!”

Chromeo, “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)”

“Def the best last final song for this playlist! I love this song so much because of course this song is so true for every guy! Also this is such a good song for the movie and can go for any scene.”
