Jasan Radford - Run Around
Soundtrack Week

My choice this week is a little more lowbrow than some of the rest of the panels’ Soundtrack Week entries, but whatever, it’s Sunday. Random lowbrow ratchet music is what I do best. I think a good soundtrack should be really memorable, and the Digimon soundtrack does just that. For me, and I’m sure for a good few of you out there too. I mean, I clearly remember the songs from the soundtrack from the Digimon Movie and man, did/do I love Digimon.

Yes, I was kind of a dorky kid. Somewhere deep down I’m still a dorky little kid, so maybe I’m wrong about this but I think Run Around really does kind of get you wanting to do just what it tells you to. Run around. Who cares where to, who care’s who’s watching, just run. Let your hyperactive inner-child go crazy for 2 minutes and 8 seconds. You have your whole life to nod approvingly at growed-up orchestra music. Right now, we’re all gonna run, run, run around!

Statues - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Soundtrack Week 

Fact: this song still gives me chills when I listen to it.  I know it’s been a year since this movie’s come out but man, this song just brings me right back.  I’m a really big fan of HUGE battle scenes and this was the song that played as that began.  As a fan of strings, this was just right up my alley.  

I remember watching the statues animate as the others cast protective spells on Hogwarts.   It’s short but it’s powerful.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!

Kings of Leon - Taper Jean Girl
Soundtrack Week

I used to work at Bengies Drive-In Theater, it was a great summer job and occasionally you’d get to watch the movies. I worked in the snack bar and I first heard this song from the Disturbia Soundtrack. In fact, the song was in the movie twice, once during and again at the credits. Credits music was always associated with a rush of adrenaline since all the customers would buy food between the movies. Something about this song just gave me even more energy and I’d bounce up and down running through the place, yelling AHHAAA SHAAAAAAHAAAKE.

We had the movie for 6 weeks (18 showings) and by the time we stopped carrying it everyone else was sick of the song. I instead went out and bought the soundtrack to the movie. The only song missing? Taper Jean Girl. I actually really liked the soundtrack regardless but it took me a little while longer to find the song that I only knew as Aha Shaaahaaake. Now whenever it pops up in my library, I listen to it and remember the good times.

Wendy Carlos — Title Music From A Clockwork Orange
Soundtrack Week 

I think A Clockwork Orange’s soundtrack fits so well with the story that tells, this tune in particular, a weird electronic version of Henry Purcell’s Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, composed in 1695. 

The first sounds you hear while you see a close-up from Alex DeLarge’s face staring at you and then the camera slowly starts to show the whole scene. A very weird scene. And Alex’s still looking at you. And you don’t know what to think of what you’re seeing or listening. And Alex still stares, his expression hasn’t changed. And you ask yourself what the heck is going on. Now he’s smiling, and of course, still observing… Drinking milk. LOOKING AT YOU.

Howard Shore - "Concerning Hobbits"
Soundtrack Week

The only thing I love more than the Lord of the Rings trilogy is its score. I love it so much that I refuse to put it in my iTunes library, because every time I listen to it, I get a bit… emotional. Couldn’t even stop myself from welling up a few moments ago when I went to re-listen to this piece before uploading it. Yeah, yeah, point and laugh all you want, but few things make me overcome with emotion more quickly than a flawless movie score. Shore’s “Concerning Hobbits” matchlessly captures the very essence of the Shire and the folks that live there: gentle, tranquil, and soothingly familiar. And every time I hear it, whether it’s just a few bars or the entire song, it kind of makes me feel like I’m home too.

See you next Wednesday!

Sex Bob-omb - Threshold
Soundtrack Week

It’s day two of Soundtrack Week so I’m going to share a song off of one of my favorite albums to accompany a film in the past few years. I’m a huge comic fan, so naturally I loved Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It was an absolutely splendid adaptation of one of my favorite works, and the music which is an integral part of the story surpassed my expectations. If you’re not familiar with the movie, the titular character, Scott, is in a band called Sex Bob-omb. The renditions of the songs in the film were written by Beck and I absolutely love them. Here’s my favorite of the bunch which gets stuck in my head routinely when I watch the movie (not that I mind).

Stealers Wheel - Stuck In The Middle With You
Soundtrack Week

Tarantino has always been my favourite director; probably because his soundtracks are untouchable, with the selections of songs always adding to the black humour that makes his films.
The Reservoir Dogs soundtrack was probably the first album I ever owned and, at the age of eight, my mum was not about to let me watch the film (I didn’t in fact end up watching it until I was nineteen, but I loved it as much as the soundtrack).

This album was probably what triggered my love for American country music; there are many more awesome, awesome songs on here that I had to choose from, such as: Coconut (Harry Nilsson)and Little Green Bag (The George Baker Selection). Stuck In The Middle With You is timeless and just so cool on the ears, not to mention it features in that wonderful scene with the ear.
