Raging Hot Falcon Is The Only Gay Porn Studio Left Using Music In Their Scenes—Should They Stop?

Posted January 5, 2018 by with 27 comments

netWhile some gay porn studios use brief snippets of music in their scene intros and trailers, there is still one gay porn studio left that has music playing throughout all of their scenes, from start to finish. That studio is Raging Hot Falcon Studios.

Clip from a recent Raging Hot Falcon scene, starring Trent King and Buck Richards:

Sometimes, the music—which is often bad techno or ambient music—can be tolerated if the fucking is great, as we saw most recently with Kurtis Wolfe and Brent Corrigan. But, for the most part, the music is outdated, pointless, insufferably redundant, and a boring distraction, and it’s odd that Raging Hot Falcon continues to use it, as if they’re stuck in the past? While their scenes look nice and feel current, they sound like they were produced in the 1990’s, and it makes no sense.

Clip from a recent Raging Hot Falcon scene, starring Sean Zevran and Cooper Dang:

Traditional porn movies released on VHS and DVD from porn studios in the 1980’s and 1990’s (most of which are all shut down now, save for Falcon) all had music, as this was the style for feature length porn movies for decades, and studios obviously weren’t producing individual internet scenes 20+ years ago. But, it’s 2018 now. Should Raging Hot Falcon stop the bad music and let the sex in their scenes set the mood and speak for itself?

    I don’t care either way but if that’s a way to save some money and, say, pay performers better, then that’s something I am fine with them sacrificing.

  • FrenchBug

    I don’t care either way but if that is a way for them to save some money that they can reinvest in, say paying performers better so they get better talent, I am all for it.
    I am emotionally invested in old-school studios surviving but they sure seem to misunderstand what the assets that could allow them to secure their niche and survive in the current market are.

      Yep. I was just reading on 247wallstreet last week the list of the 20 worst CEO’s in America and they all share this same issue: IBM, Sears, Snap…so insular and foolish enough to think their platform was so unique Facebook/Instagram wouldn’t do what they do.

    Music on scenes is a complete no-no for me. I have to stop watching the ony Raging scene i try to watch because of this and it was a good one. It is just annoying.

  • Ed Woody

    I remember one studio – I think it was Big Blue? – who instead of generic porn background music like the stuff they made fun of in that Family Guy episode, used to use blatant rip-offs of existing songs. Like when shops want to play certain songs in the store but can’t afford the rights so they pay someone cheap to re-record it so it sounds almost the same but NOT the same so they can’t be sued. And they picked gay-appropriate songs to do it with as well – I definitely identified at least one Kylie song and one Pet Shop Boys song in there.

    As long as handlebar moustaches don’t come back, I’m good.

    I think if you still have music in gay porn in 2018, it’s likely you could featured at any of the country’s remaining bookstore glory holes and bath houses. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b9c4bc2212dbb41a25a25dfd828bb623b603e219d76565a9ec6e4001a595da07.gif

    I’d rather they stop using poorly lit sets and use more beds instead of boxes. And maybe take some classes on racial sensitivity. But I realize that last one is a dickpipe dream.

    Music in porn doesn’t bother me. All these years later sometimes I’ll still catch myself humming that ditty used in the trailer for ChiChi’s Head of the Class. In fact, I’m going to listen to it again right now.

    • Jason

      Oh yeah, some of the song written for Chi Chi’s films were cool. Gave Sharon Kane a lot of extra work in the 90’s

  • The Romantics Talking in your sleep played all the time in early 80’s porn both straight and gay
    ripoff tracks or remixed https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d95e00834e4073ebf062289dbd32bc7aeb62e6019ac936cab67b92478153e0ba.jpg

    • HoratioCaine

      thanks. now i have that song stuck in my head.

  • Hot Twink

    Times change and so does taste. Most of the “music” (if you can really call it that) is atrocious. I personally don’t care for it. It usually seems like an afterthought…

    Never have I once been watching porn and thought ( damn this is a bop!) So in less they start having a soundtrack with all the hottest artist I doubt people will care?

  • nodoubtfan

    I honestly only notice the music if it’s bad.

  • Silver64

    Most definitely YES!!! Porn is not only a Visual Medium…it’s also an Aural one too. I, for one, absolutely loved hearing every gasp, moan & “Fuck Me” during a scene. Otherwise it’s just a bit on the Robotic side and you may as well turn the sound all the way down.

    Some Studios even with no music already have the actors not making any noises…TimTales is the best example of that, and MEN.Com has had a lot like that recently also.

  • Devin

    Yes. The music isn’t even good music. It’s repetitive elevator bullshit.

  • Devin

    Buck Richards legs look awesome…especially when he’s sitting on Trent’s dick. Oh, and Buck’s ass jiggling like that while he’s fucking Trent. So hot

    • Vizual Bastard

      Buck is mouth-wateringly awesome! I only wish his tattoo would disappear…

  • peter

    Personally I’ve never been into music in porn because it’s invariably it’s a cross between cheesy club muzak and the soundtrack to an infomercial for the latest ab or thigh workout that fits into your closet or under your bed. But I like something non-intrusive in the background to set the mood when I’m actually doing it. Something sweet and soulful — I wish there was a gay Barry White (RIP)

  • WhimsyCotton

    God, yes. I’ve seen a few videos from yonder years, and some of the music was downright offensive.

  • Marko

    Not all porn music is bad. Kansas City Trucking Co. & the like wouldn’t have had such wonderfully sleazy atmospheres without their soundtracks. I can only imagine the mood they set in the xxx cinemas of the time. San Fran record label Dark Entries has got the Pitchfork crown all excited by reissuing the soundtrack work Patrick Cowley (electronic disco pioneer lost to AIDS in 82) did for some early 80s Fox studio gay porn. I’ve got the School Daze one and it’s excellent (if moody, downbeat synthesizer music is your bag).
    I think it is a thing of the past though. Porn viewing habits and settings have changed a lot. If I want music while I’m watching, I’ll play my own.

    As someone that works in music, Raging Stallion and Hot house and falcon Can get rid of the music as most of it isn’t original and tend to be reused thus most people won’t notice it. Now if you are going to incorporate music in porn it’s better you do something creative with it. They can still use it in their fetish scenes because it does create a sort of ambience that is needed, but in general production they should just drop it. Btw I’m surprised nobody is talking about the new Hot Thai model at Cockyboys. The dude is hot ( well if you don’t mind tats.)

  • Jon

    All music in porn should be done away with. Except for very few instances (the models who scream and moan stupidly e.g. Damien Crosse, Armond Rizzo), I’d rather hear the models.

  • Me2

    Personally, I always enoyed the music in all its cheesy glory. It reminded young me not to take these scenes so seriously that I lost sight of myself.

  • HoratioCaine

    they should use the music they used when they took the old loops from the early days of falcon and put them on video tape. — i’ve been checking out vintage porn from the 70’s and it’s amazing how many either just leave a radio on and you get commericals/songs/traffic updates or just go for it and play popular tunes from a few years earlier or early disco obviously without paying any licensing fees. then there’s costello presley in the 80 who managed to rip everyone off and keep just enough bars away from a lawsuit. — the days of music in porn scenes is over. the public wants to hear every ball slapping moment.

  • Jason

    When done right, and done well, music enhances a scene, otherwise there would be no music in TV shows and movies. The studios just need someone who is good at it. Remember the music is someone’s job too, just like the performers, directors etc.
