Now that’s a thought stirring question, I said to myself when I first heard it. There are many sounds that would be included in a life soundtrack that are not songs. I should return to this broad question in a future post.
Jene over at The Original Bean asked a more specific question about a soundtrack. This week (week 6 of her challenge/game) Jene is asking for your favorite song from a movie soundtrack. You should click over there and join in.
Please tell me music lovers do you have as much trouble selecting songs as I do?
I can narrow it down to a handful or so, but that actually final selection is tough. But you know what? It’s not final. Ok it’s final for this post but who is to say I won’t revisit this in a few months?
Movies and songs go together well like eggs and bacon, peanut butter and bacon, or ice cream and bacon.
Hey I like bacon ok.
Some movies are based on musicals (“Grease” (comes from bacon), “West Side Story”) and have a full soundtrack. Other movies are based on band or singer (“Walk the Line”, “Ray”, “Across the Universe”) so they have a built-in set of songs. Is it just me, or are there more of these types lately? What do you think?
My selection comes from the soundtracks that provide the backgrounds for mood setting in the scenes. “The Graduate”, “Rocky”, and “The Big Chill” are movies that have great memorable songs.
My selection might not go over well with many of you. I understand (you might not like bacon either). The title subject is not a pleasant or welcomed one. But I can listen to this song and ponder its lyrics over and over again. So think about it in a more philosophical way. (BTW - I disagree with the title and think of it more as a question)
Movie - “M.A.S.H.”
Song - “Suicide is Painless”
...A brave man once requested meto answer questions that are keyis it to be or not to beand I replied 'oh why ask me?'
