18 May 2009, 19:13 by meako1973I'm sat here listening to the Watchmen soundtrack, and thinking to myself how much a perfectly tailored soundtrack can really make a film stand out, and lend so much to the scenes. Now this applies to orchestral Original Soundtracks (scores composed solely for the film), and in films such as Star Wars you cannot imagine one without the other. However, what I am mainly referring to here is the use of popular (or even obscure) releases in a motion picture.
On Watchmen in-particular we had the beautiful use of The Beginning is the End is the Beginning used to great effect in the trailer. A second trailer utilised Take a Bow but to a lesser effect - it will always be Pumpkins' one which sticks with me. Then the genius use of Unforgettable for the rather brutal assault on The Comedian which opens the film was a great idea. As for The Times They Are a-Changin' and All Along the Watchtower, well what can be said except for that they were perfect choices!
30 Jun 2008, 14:28 by Amelia716Out of boredom I decided to post an entry with some of the first songs I ever heard from the artists in my top 10 (and some others)
1. Placebo - Though I don't listen to them that much anymore, they still are one of the best for me. And though I've watched a couple videos on MTV years ago, I consider Centrefolds my first Placebo song. Simply, that was the song that drew me to their music and persuaded me to download their albums.
2. Regina Spektor - Fidelity was the first song I heard from her. Then I downloaded all her albums and went nutso. Without Regina I wouldn't be what I am now. And this is not exaggerating! It was her song Lady (a tribute to Billie Holiday) that got me started on the whole jazz thing. Love that creative, quirky, sweet Regina.
3. Amy Winehouse - Funky music junkie. But I don't really care about her personal life. She does some good music and that's it. First song ever was Rehab, which I didn't like at first. Shortly after that I got addicted to her. Nowdays I hardly ever play a few of her songs.
