Please warn me if I talk about music too much. Then I know that my mission hasn’t succeeded yet ;).
When I was working for school yesterday (yes, I have Easter break but I have to work for school), iTunes was playing and suddenly Requiem for a Dream passed by. Theatrical to say at least! But I do like it. You know, dramatic movies need dramatic music. When you pick the right music, your movie will be way more intense and it will leave a better impression.
There is plenty of good film music, but I haven’t seen every movie that exists, so I will just sum up the film music that struck me the most.
1. Lord of the Rings. I have seen the first movie when I was 9, and it’ the first movie I can remember. It was also the first time that I felt the impact of music on me. The films were equally as beautiful. Why wouldn’t you choose imaginary creatures over real life? I liked the beautiful, brave elves. I liked the brave men. I liked the settings and the music.
2. Pirates of the Caribbean. I was older when I saw them, and they might not be the best movies ever, but I enjoyed watching them anyway. Of course I liked Captain Jack. He’s a genius. His humour is fantastic. With the appearance of the mermaids in the last movie, I was completely caught. I could use them in The Big Task I have to do for school. It fitted what I had to say perfectly… And, although I always say I don’t like it, I did like the love story… Don’t tell anyone… When hearing this music, you feel like a pirate too, no? No? Oh. Has to be me then.
3. Schindler’s List. I haven’t seen this one, but it’s on my list. I know this one since I was really tiny. It’s a common tune here, in our household, and it’s so damn sad and beautiful. I really want to see the movie. I have to see it.
4. Requiem for a Dream. Haven’t seen the movie either. It’s on my list! It’s a piece of music that almost everyone knows, I think, without having to see the movie. Am I wrong? It includes violins, and that’s the way to my heart. Put a violin in it and you can make me do anything. At all.
5. Black Swan. Hey, I warned you that I’m a ballet freak, right? (This is not my favourite version of this ballet music piece, but this appears in the movie…)
Enough for today. I will keep on hunting you down with more film music, or pieces of movies that I like.That’s what blogs are for, guess…
Don’t forget to agree or disagree on me and tell me what film music I have forgotten about!
