There are a lot of new gorgeous films coming out. From the last Hobbit film to the Imitation Game (which I'm dying to see of course)
Each of these films have wonderful music scores and here are a few of them and some older ones as well; cause a good film is nothing without a beautiful piece of music.
Starting with an older one; cause it's in my head all morning;
Every year around this time of year we can vote on the Top 2000 songs on Dutch radio 2. Every year it's the same old 'kill your darlings' as you can select 15 songs and 5 free choices. As always when I'm done and the list has been sent I'm thinking: I should have put that one in, or that one. I'm listening to a lot of music that isn't in a list these days so that's okay too.
Here are some of my top 2000 songs I've sent this year: More old than new. I had some newer songs but not much.
It all started for me when I listened to the song 'the Blower's daughter' from the film Closer by Damien Rice . It got to me and it still does. I have it on my Iphone and everytime I'm listening to it I get chills all over.
Now he has a new album out 'My Favourite Faded Fantasy' after 8 years of waiting and it's so good. Again chills all over!
Today I opened Google to see this great Google Doodle and I immediately had my Sunday music theme; the Cold war. A lot of songs have been made about the Cold War especially in the 80's just before the wall fell.
James Abbott McNeill Whistler (July 11, 1834 – July 17, 1903) was an American-born, British-based artist active during the American Gilded Age. His famous signature for his paintings was in the shape of a stylized butterfly possessing a long stinger for a tail.
His most famous painting is "Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1" (1871), commonly known as Whistler's Mother.
