Five Soundtracks That Redefined Their Movies

It is not infrequent to hear people coming out of movies comment: “That action was sick!” or “Maaan! Michael Bay really outdid himself this time!” (okay, the latter might not be that frequent). However,people underrate the amazing music that shapes most…

There it is people. The power of covers. We can all agree that “Call me maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen is a disease. It is all over the web, and parodies are endless. But, this where Ben Howard’s version interferes, and makes a lame song, actually really cool!

Lou Reed and his different distinct styles are an essential part of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s history. Whether with The Velvet Underground (and Nico) or later through his solo career, he never failed to serve Rock ‘n’ Roll. This is “Satellite of Love” from the 1972 album Transformers. 

I am not usually a fan of indie rock. Also, I wouldn’t agree that it is a music genre by itself, since it has also given way to many sub-genres. Local Natives first have a cool name for a band. I don’t know yet any other song, but “Airplanes” has been on my ipod for two years maybe and I never skip it. Hope you enjoy it, and maybe suggest similar cool songs from this band!

I only know one song of The Stranglers and I’m not too proud. “Always The Sun” had always moved something in me, and I should get to know more of their work. I’ll appreciate any suggestions!
Note: Use a headphone. 

A small deviation of what was being posted here. Blink 182 had their success with a coming of age population in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and I was one of them. “I miss you”, released in 2003 is not the usual Blink song you are going to hear; when you listen to it, you would probably reminisce on early innocent romantic affiliations you had . If I want to describe my early teen years with a few songs, “I miss you” would be one of them.

It’s been almost a week since the last post (caused by moving a distance of 2 continents). We come back with Henry Mancini, the genius behind the Pink Panther Theme, with another theme, The Peter Gunn Theme. A music that says mystery, suspense and crime in its composition.

Kings of Convenience is a Norwegian duo. Their use of harmony is a bit similar to Simon & Garfunkel. From their 2009 album Declaration of Dependence, this is the beautiful acoustic sound of “Mrs. Cold”.

Ry Cooder and Harry Dean Stanton give us this track full of feelings and emotions. “Cancion Mixteca” from the movie “Paris, Texas” is a traditional Mexican song, that talks about people who are away from their homeland. This piece takes you to the Mexican desert, with its composition full of imagery.
