T.v. Themes/film Scores/game Music


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite movie moments is John Powell's Forbidden Friendship, a wonderfully moving piece:

I am currently stuck on a Cirque du Soleil binge, the primary soundtrack being that of Totem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK8MPoOSI1k This show steals stuff from all over the world and makes some pretty heady compilations of styles. Also, the music for their film show, IRIS, by Danny Elfman (!) is great.

Lastly, the least important song for the movie of Chicago, also by Elfman, seemlingly written for no reason, but great:

As far as popular music, some of the bands I like are The Moody Blues, The Eagles, The Dave Mathews Band, and of course The Beatles. They all have good lyrics, and are pretty musically creative and interesting.

:veryunsure: Wow, I just realized that list made me look pretty old.
