Now answer the questions according to the numbers:
What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
It was probably either South Side or Extreme Ways. It was so long ago, I can't remember.
What is your favourite album of 2?
Definitely The Lord of the Rings, which I consider one album because it tells one continuous story.
What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
"The more you lose the less you see,
So close your eyes and start to breathe,
Oh you said yourself, this wasn't easy."
How many times have you seen 4 live?
What is your favourite song by 7?
It's Good To Be In Love. If this song were human, it would be my soul-mate.

Relaxing in bed and falling asleep to the sounds of Dayvan Cowboy.
Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
28 Ene 2009, 0:56 de FlariariiaI listen to two film composers. Joe Hisaishi for his incredible work on the master Miyazaki's films and Howard Shore for, what else, the soundtracks for Lord of the Rings.
Liek srsly, do I even need to explain?
Let's start with Shore to get it over with. Imho, the best part of the films are the music and the design. They set the whole tone and the world. The directing is alright, and the acting works much on the fact that the men are HOT. Don't get me started on the script. Just. Read the book.
The real talent lies in how the music illustrates the whole world. The nostalgic playfulness of the Shire (there is a reason Concerning Hobbits is his most played track), the exciting, mysterious drums of Moria and the Uruk-hai, the heart-breaking wistfulness of Rohan and the too much forgotten, ground-shaking climax of Minas Tirith ... I could go on forever. Shore has captured it all, and made something that can live on it's own, which is rare for a soundtrack.
22 May 2008, 22:11 de ObeeHunterI can't get enough of film scores lately. I could listen to them all day. So I decided to make a list of my top ten favorite themes of all time. Okay so they're not really top ten themes. It's more like ten movies and a few, selected tracks from them. It was hard to pick, give me a break. Anyway, these ten scores I've listened to over and over again so I'm really counting replay value here.
Of course I could easily add another fifteen titles to this list but I think these particular tracks are my ultimate favorites. Personally I'm just proud of myself for including Williams only three times.
1.) Requiem for a Dream : Clint Mansell & Kronos Quartet
- Hope Overture
- Lux Aeterna
2.) Dragonheart : Randy Edelman
- The World Of The Heart(Main Title)
3.) Peter Pan(2003) : James Newton Howard
4.) Terminator 2 Judgment Day : Brad Fiedel
- Main Title
5.) Indiana Jones : John Williams
- Raiders March(Main Title)

19 Jul 2006, 16:18 de city_ofthemoonHere they are, in an order of sorts.. just what came to my mind at the moment, so can and will change everytime i listen..
- A Change of Seasons: An epic track that is amazing both instrumentally and lyrically
- Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels): I just like this song. A lot.
- Blackest Eyes: Great combination of prog and pop, mixes an upbeat feel with dark lyrics
- Finally Free: Very nice song, a great finale to an awesome album
- Bleak: Masterful melding of heaviness with melody, just doesn't get old.
- Lazarus: A beautiful, melodic, piano and vocal based track from PT
- Don't Panic: Just a nice song :)
- The Odyssey: A great epic with nice themes and writing.
- Blackwater Park: Once again, awesome contrasts.
- Dryad of the Woods: I'd pick one of many Pain of Salvation songs, but at the moment its this one.
- Heaven: This may suprise you, but I think its that synth tone, I can't get enough.
- Day One: Has to be heard to be appreciated
- Needlefeast: Great heavy track, with a joy guitar line over the top in the 'solo.'
10 Jul 2006, 21:54 de ExcelleI've been listening to a fair few of my film soundtracks recently. Film soundtracks are quite unique as far as music goes, it's almost back to the days of classical concertos and the like. It's worth noting that I'm talking about film scores here, not the cobbled together compilation albums that proliferate around Hollywood output. I quite often put soundtracks on in the background while I write or play games, but I sometimes like to just sit back and enjoy them.
Here are some of my favourites...
Mixing the old and the new superbly, Michael Andrews creates an eerie mix of synth and piano that reflects the overall oddness of one of my favourite films. Favourite tracks would be Carpathian Ridge and The Artifact & Living.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
One of the first film scores I ever bought, for a knockdown price in an Our Price sale! I only bought it for the main Jurassic Park theme (aired as a finale on this album), but the rest of the album is excellent…
