Movie Soundtracks and Scores

Recommended Posts

Just a couple of that come to mind.

Phillip Glass's work in Candyman:

 

Eurythmics in the underrated 1984 movie starring John Hurt

 

Willie Hutch's work in the Pam Grier movie Foxy Brown e.g.

Basically Hans Zimmer entire catalogue.... 

his concerts are astonishingly good. 
 

he captures the emotions of the movie and scene better than any composer I’ve listened to.

notable songs

 

Time - Inception

Supermarine - Dunkirk (astonishing to run to as well)

Pride Rock - Lion King

Molosus - Batman Begins

Now We are Free and The Battle - Gladiator

I agree, it’s definitely ‘Bond’ with the string arrangements but I half expected/wanted it to go up a notch but it kind of just meanders along in an inoffensive manner.

certainly not as dull as the Sam Smith one for Spectre (however that rather aptly suited the equally inisipid film!)

That couldn't be any more generic. Harmonically it could be any Bond theme, string pads Hawaiian guitar. What a dirge.

I thought the film composers usually wrote the song and they just got the artists to sing them (or give them a 'co-write' credit.)

Maybe because Zimmer took over half way through they didn't do that this time?

@TheAuthority Try this :)

 

Recommend following them on Facebook, may have mentioned that before? :)

Jari continuously experiments in sound, he continuously blows my mind. Paul's a classy musician with it. A really potent mix.

That's my favourite album of the '10s. 

 

Scores and soundtracks are a bit naff these days :(

Follow a group on FB that's quite well informed, but the music is bleurgh. 

I don't think it's a meritocracy. 

No mark 60s Italian films are often better scored than the fattest budget blockbusters of the present.

@Xann I have that Pepe Deluxe album! I think on a recommendation from you on VT ! :D

It's very cool.

Italian Westerns have great soundtracks - do you know Nino Rota? He even wrote a trombone concerto!

There's a coffee van that plays 'The Godfather' in the locality :)

Don't have much Rota in any incarnation tbh. 'La Strada' and 'Il Gattopardo' are about it for him under his own name here, though there may be a couple of tracks on themed comps? Will pick up 'Amarcord' if I see it cheap? 

We did keep a collection of his orchestral works when I was selling classical stuff, but can't recall having heard the trombone concerto tbh.

Will give it a go. See a piano works on CPO too. Hmmmm.... ?

 

Staying in Italy, but dropping the budget a bit - Riz Ortolani.

Soviet Musicals. I'm not saying they're where it's at, but you might have a few weeks to kill?

Another Phillip Glass soundtrack.   Don't know that I'd necessarily want to listen to it on its own, but I remember being blown away by how well it fit the film.
