heh... another show I saw... since I'm here already...
I went to a White Zombie concert for the "la sexorcisto" tour... way back in the day. The chic bass player had to play the entire show sitting down in a chair... because she just had surgery and her doctor would not clear her for the show... True story.
OMG...I can't believe that either! I have the CD and listen to it all the time much to the horror of my family! In fact we sang a few songs in school too. They just celebrated some anniversary so I think you can get it on DVD now....Sophs, wavegirl is absolutely right you HAVE to see....besides it's based on a true story and there are still family members of the Von Trapp family singing songs and making CD's.....
I know! I was obviously a deprived child, I shall be having words with my Mother and finding out exactly why I wasn't bought a copy as a child. Lol I shall buy it, and watch it though, then I'll write a hub anout it :-)
I love the Seattle scene as well...Soundgarden, Nirvana, etc...But I have to say it was a different Seattle that blew me away. The soundtrack for "Sleepless in Seattle" was FN incredible, so eclectic...Great stuff. One more thing, how is it possible for somebody not to have seen "The Sound of Music"? LOL...PEACE...OUT
If I had to chose one from all time, it would probably be the theme to Starwars. Not sure if they made a soundtrack of that, but that is one that comes to mind.
The Sound of Music would be another one, and the Wizard of oz. I'm sure there a lot of Disney films that would give these a run for their money. But, since I have not seen any in a while, I would have to think about it. Maybe Fantasia.
Maybe Hello Dolly. Saturday night Fever, and Grease.
I recently saw the new release of "Hairspray" with John Travolta. It was a very good movie, and had some great music. Some of it was even kind of funny.
Many are good...Queen Of The Damned was good..and has one of my all time fav tracks, Change in the house of flies by The Deftones...And the soundtrack to Guy Ritchies movie Snatch was pretty cool also.
wow... Really surprised there is very little mention of one of my favorite composers who also has been fairly prolific and done a lot of great soundtracks... John Williams. I love all six Star Wars soundtracks, though I think my favorite is Phantom Menace (I love the chorus in the Duel of the Fates).
A very close second to one of the Star Wars pieces would be the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.
(I actually have a number of composers that I really like, but these two groups of scores in particular are among my favorites).
The only one I can think of is the Sound of Music. There are a few other posts for it, but, I personally think it is the only one that has songs on it that everybody knows.
I think my favorite songs are "Sixteen going on 17" and "My Favorite Things." I even sing that song when I'm feeling down, and it kind of makes me feel better.
My mom also has the soundtrack to "Hello Dolly."
But I think more people would be impressed by "Grease." and "Saturday Night Fever."
I also like "Victor Victoria" which is another Julie Andrews film, and one of my favorites.
I grew up on show tunes. What can I say.
My favorite movie song is "Somewhere of the Rainbow." From the wizard of Oz. And "If I were the King of the forest." So, I guess you could say the sound track from "The Wizard of OZ" is one of my favorites too.
I should also add the soundtrack to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." If you listen to those songs enough they will mold into your brain. Like the "Time Warp" Song, "Dammit Janet. " and "Sweet Transvestite." Halrious!
Just to add. I watched the Rocky Horror Picture show at a halloween party the other day. There were over 125 people there, and even thought it never got crazy, there were a few laughs, and you could hear people singing along to the Tunes. It is just one of those movies that will never go away. I love rocky horror!
I just wished that the MC of the party would have stopped getting on the Microphone and talking crap during the best parts of the movie. H e talked almost all the way through the final song..."I'm Going Home." And, I just wanted to jump up and knock him out.
It's like someone getting on the microphone during the National anthem and reporting the weather. It's something you just don't do! I can't tell you how many people yelled shut up! But, he just said....Hey you bitches! This is my party, and I'll talk if I want to....yak yak yak...Oh brother!
Book of Eli (How Can You Mend a Broken Heart).....awesome song for that scene and delivers the perfect mood for the movie, Transformers (Linkin Park) love them......those are what come to mind at first, but I know there's more!
Its got to be the soundtrack of my favourite movie of all time which is Pulp Fiction. From Let's Stay Together - Al Green to Flowers On The Wall - The Statler Brothers the songs really add to what the movie is.
Was reading the best vampire topic and it made me look at it again and well it just wasn't the same. For me I need a Movie that really gets inside my head and makes me relate to the Movie.I have 2 favs, Peggy Sue Got...
