  • Potential Oscar Nominee for Best Original Song

    29 Jul 2006, 22:05 de reuvenmalter

    The new song from Melissa Etheridge could be a strong contender for best original song at next year's Oscars. I discovered it while reading the blog, A List Of Things Thrown Five Minutes Ago.
    Matt Marcotte writes, the song is among Etheridge's best--starting off slow and moving into a driving chorus off a simple riff.
  • Simple and Clean

    It had been a while since I heard this song - while revisiting kingdom hearts this week, I remembered why I used to love it so much. ^_^


    Utada Hikaru - Simple and Clean


    When you walk away
    You don't hear me say please
    Oh baby, don't go
    Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
    It's hard to let it go
    You're giving me too many things
    Lately, you're all I need
    You smiled at me and said,

    Don't get me wrong I love you
    But does that mean I have to meet your father?
    When we are older you'll understand
    What I meant when I said "No,
    I don't think life is quite that simple"

    When you walk away
    You don't hear me say please
    Oh baby, don't go
    Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
    It's hard to let it go

    The daily things
    That keep us all busy
    Are confusing me
    That's when you came to me and said,

    Wish I could prove I love you
    But does that mean I have to walk on water?
    When we are older you'll understand
    It's enough when I say so
    And maybe some things are that simple

    When you walk away
    You don't hear me say please
    Oh baby, don't go
    Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
    It's hard to let it go

    Hold me
    Whatever lies beyond this morning
    Is a little later on
    Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
    Nothing's like before

    Hold me
    Whatever lies beyond this morning
    Is a little later on
    Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
    Nothing's like before
  • New music this week

    22 Jul 2006, 20:45 de JLSigman

    Lots of it... so here we go. ;-)

    - I found http://www.ocremix.org and downloaded a metric ton of stuff. Kept probably half of it. Some of it is beautiful, some of it is quite out there... but there's a lot of talent to be heard.

    - From http://gh.ffshrine.org/ I got some Yoko Kanno from Vision of Escaflowne, and unfortunately was not much impressed with the music. I expect amazing things out of Yoko Kanno, especially considering her work on and , and when she sounds more ordinary, I'm disappointed. I had the some of the same issues last week while listening to some of her stuff from Macross PLUS, although some of that was the absolutely crappy quality of the recording.

    - Also from http://gh.ffshrine.org/ I got some Wada Kaoru, from the later version of . There was some nice stuff in here, but not much.

    - Followed a neighbor recommendation and tried out some DIR EN GREY and was completely not impressed. *shrug* It's the same thing with GACKT... he's very pretty to look at, but he doesn't do anything for me musically. I much prefer T.M.Revolution.

    - And then, to prove I'm not completely turning Japanese, I downloaded some old school Public Enemy. They had their heyday during my Metallica phase, so I didn't pay them much attention then. I regret it. :-p There are some incredibly powerful lyrics in their raps, a lot of which is still relevant today.

    For next week, I'll go back to the game music... I want to find Radiata Stories, which I just finished playing, and Xenosaga III, since Yuki Kajiura can do no wrong. ;-) I'll also probably go looking for Dirge of Cerebrus and .hack//GU if it's available.
  • Ottman in Superman Returns

    16 Jul 2006, 20:49 de garotasemfio

    I have a huge OST collection (essencially MGM musicals from 40s and 50s) but this is the first time I come up to write about one.
    Superman Returns from John Ottman and Damon Intrabartolo is amazing, and it seems to be even more each listening. Ottman is experienced in composing for hero-films, and his work in "X2: X-Men United and Fantastic Four" is notable as well.
    It seems weird at a first glace to see a whole OST under 1978's Superman signature from John Williams, but it's more than you can expect. Watch the movie, listen to the OST afterwards. You will never leave the romantic atmosphere of the film!

    Whoa, that was unexpected! I wasn't paying too much attention to my "Tracks played" counter and today BAM! it hit 15000 and what is the lucky track? It's Interview (Spoken Word) talking about how important music is in movies! Is it a sign? Hm, probably I should catch up on his filmography!

  • Mission: Impossible III Soundtrack

    24 Abr 2006, 20:27 de RadicalBender

    SoundtrackNet has made available samples from the forthcoming Mission: Impossible III soundtrack by Michael Giacchino. If you pay attention, you can definitely hear the influences from his work on Alias, Lost and even The Incredibles. The soundtrack also does a great job of utilizing Lalo Schifrin's original Mission: Impossible theme. Frankly, just from these snippets, I'm liking the sound of this soundtrack just as good if not better than Danny Elfman in the first movie and Hans Zimmer in the second.

    Looking forward to getting my hands on the complete version this summer.
  • Bollywood Song Pops Up in Spike Lee's "Inside Man"

    30 Mar 2006, 20:50 de pjebsen

    I just watched Spike Lee's latest movie ("Inside Man") and was pleasantly surprised to hear that it started off with one of my favorite songs from movies: Chaiyya Chaiyya. A remix of the song with a new rap part by Panjabi MC closes the movie.

    The original version of A.R. Rahman's song appears in the Mani Ratnam movie "Dil Se" (starring Sharukh Khan and Preity Zinta). A clip can be viewed at YouTube.com.

    Here's what Spike Lee told Sam Toy in an interview for Empire magazine:
    >> Well here’s the great thing about New York and all types of music. I’m a professor at New York University’s graduate film school; I’ve been a professor for the last eight years. One class we were talking about musicals, and one of my students suggested I see some Bollywood. I knew about it but I had never seen a Bollywood film. So I said, “Name one!” She said, “Dil Se.” Next class she gave me the DVD, I liked the movie very much. That song, ‘Changa Changa’ [sic], is in Dil Se. So, I made a promise with myself that one day I’d like to use it –so one day we did a song with Terence Blanchard, our composer, then we got MC Punjabi [sic] to do the rap, so that’s how that happened. <<

    You'll find more info on in the Bollywood Soundtracks group.

    Today is the 6th anniversary of the passing of Ian Dury. A great man sadly missed, the world is a lesser place without him! At least we have his music to console ourselves.

    If you do one thing today... listen to some Ian Dury!
