This I do in the quiet corner of my bedroom, so as not to disturb anyone. It is simply for my own pleasure... the pleasure of creating music; but as I said, I am no musician. Therefore I have great admiration for those who really are musically inclined. Just as some have artistic talent, or talent for writing, some people have a gift for music, whether singing, composing or playing an instrument, we are so grateful for those with a gift for music.
What brought about these thoughts today? I was packaging some art to take to our show in York,Pa. this coming weekend, with "Pandora, (online music) playing one lovely melody after another, when one of my favorite musical compositions began to play. I had to stop what I was doing, for this hauntingly beautiful opus always stops me in my tracks and leaves me breathless. I will reveal the song below.
Although my musical tastes run the gamut from Celtic to 1940's Big Band and many other styles in between, it seems some of the most incredible music ever made is that created for Movie Soundtracks and so, without further adieu, please listen to some of the most incredible sound tracks ever made.... in my humble opinion.
Please put on your headphones for maximum pleasure and indulge in something uplifting, exciting, slightly sad and exhilarating for your ears!
First is the theme song from
"ROB ROY", great movie and an amazing composition, so beautiful.
Next in line is the powerful theme song from "Band of Brothers". Whenever we watch this set of 9 discs, James wants to fast forward to the movie, but I must hear this majestic theme song that plays at the beginning of each disc. You may not be interested in World War II stories, ( I am), but you cannot deny the strength and glory of this music.
Another fantastic movie with incredible soundtrack, "The Last of the Mohicans". The beauty begins at :39; then, at around 3:30 things get really exciting and it just gets better and better! Of course, it doesn't hurt if you've actually watched the movie, which I highly recommend. It's incredible to experience music like this with an amazing script and fabulous acting.
Good grief, I'm on a roll! How's about the soundtrack from "Out of Africa".
It takes awhile to set up the scene, but hang in there, the music starts at 2:24 and really hits you by 3:56, WOW!
I can't deny this makes me tear up. If you really want to be touched by this music watch the second video beneath it, same music with photos of Titanic passengers
Cider House Rule
And now, for a lighthearted and happy ending, the theme song from" Nicholas Nickleby".
This one is delightful, I even recorded it for one of my own videos.
I could go on and on, " Braveheart", "Cider House Rules", etc. etc, Music, music music!
Please feel free to add to this list.
I will be back to posting more frequently after my last show of the year, Thanksgiving weekend. Till then, Fondly from the Hollow, Jeri
