I’m sorry I’ve been away…it’s been a wild few months that I’ll have to fill you in on.
I think it’s time to dust off, and start fresh.
I’ve been talking to my buddy John over at The Droid You’re Looking For! (awesomely funny & serious movie blog) about doing a crossfade about my favorite uses of music in movies. Naturally, we were at the bar. Naturally, we were drinking…and naturally we both thought it was an great idea. (clinked pint glasses)
In my opinion, movies and music go together like peas and carrots…even back before there was sound in movies, there was always music being played to keep the crowd interested (most likely to keep annoying human sounds to a minimum). Now, not all movies have music in them. The only one that I can remember off the top of my head is Alfred Hitchcock’s, The Birds. It didn’t have a musical score…unless you count the screams of the birds, but that was the point.
