Oh, I love movie soundtracks--I have tons of them. My favorite composer is John Williams. I get all different kinds so I have different moods to set while I'm writing. For battles or fights or moody scenes, I have "Gladiator," "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy soundtracks and "Pearl Harbor." Of course, all of those have quiet, contemplative songs, too. I have the "Star Wars" soundtracks from the newer movies, "Back to the Future" soundtrack, "The Time Machine," "Jurassic Park," "A.I," "Atlantis" and a bunch of others. Sorry this is a little off-topic, but I LOVE soundtracks!!! :mrgreen:

Sound tracks...

Postby Grania » Sun Sep 19, 2004 4:48 pm

Talking of Soundtracks, does anyone know how many film soundtracks Moya has done? There is King Arthur obviously, and I have the 'Back to Titanic' album, but what else is there?
Come to that; what are everyone's thoughts on the song Moya does on 'Back to Titanic'? Personally, I'm not sure that the song suits her. Don't get me wrong, it's really well done, but you get what I mean :)

Clannad have contributed to at least The Last of The Mohicans as well as to Patriot Games and Switch (a Moya duet with Paul Young called Both Sides Now)... If anyone knows more, just continue the list!

Best soundtracks are Danny Elfman soundtracks- Nightmare before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish, Beetlejuice...
I don't have money to buy cd's except aria or opera cd's so and thankfully that's my favourite genre! :D

Moya also sung on the "Circle of Friends" soundtrack with Shane MacGowen ("You're The One"), the "To End All Wars" soundtrack too (which I wish they'd release on CD!

I was watching Nell the other night (cried bucket loads as ever) and loved the soundtrack to that, I'll have to see if it's available as it was lovely.

Garbo, Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish have great soundtracks indeed! Glad you've bought some Simon & Garfunkel too, they're a wonderful pair.

I've been a fan of S&G since I was a kiddie, dear, I just don't have money to buy things. They came to where I live and I couldn't see them. :cry: :cry: :cry:

My favourite Danny Elfman soundtrack is Nightmare, but he is really an amazing composer, one of the best.

I was exposed to S&G when I was about 11 one new year and I've been hooked ever since, they're just so wonderful. Paul Simon is an excellent song writer

Well... if we only count legally purchased, non-pirate CD's, that sort of makes it a little harder for me, 'cause those are pretty much impossible to find here - so, I'll just count everything :D

01. 王菲 (Faye Wong) : 将爱 ("It's My Style")
02. 王菲 : 只爱陌生人 ("I Only Love Strangers" perhaps?)
03. 王菲 : 天空 ("Sky")
04. 王菲 : 浮躁 ("Impatience" perhaps?)
05. 王菲 : 胡思乱想 ("Random Thinking")
06. 王菲 : 唱游 ("Scenic Tour")
07. Madonna : Greatest Hits Volume 2
08. Björk : Medúlla
09. Under Byen : Det Er Mig der Holder Træerne Sammen (I'm the One Who Holds the Trees Together) [d/l]
10. Under Byen : Kyst (Coast) [d/l]
11. Garbage : Version 2.0
12. 周杰伦 (Jay / Jay-Jo / Jay Chow) : 叶惠美 (don't know the English title, 叶惠美 sounds like a girl's name, so maybe just Ye Huimei)
13. Sinéad O'Connor : The Lion and the Cobra
14. Sigur Rós : Ágætis Byrjun (An Okay Beginning) [d/l]
15. Kari Bremnes : Svarta Bjørn (Black Bear)

Yeah, that's pretty much it from the past month or so... no, some of them I've had longer...

I can warmly recommend Faye Wong, she's awesome! The same goes for Under Byen - if you like Björk and/or Sigur Rós, you're likely to also like both these two (especially Under Byen can be compared - Faye Wong is Chinese and thus somewhat different, but I highly recommend Björk fans to get "It's My Style" from 2003).

*hoping and praying that the Chinese will show up properly here*

I would probably listen to S&G all day long if it weren't for Clannad/Moya, the Byrds, and Cherish the Ladies! I like to try to play along on the whistle to "El Condor Pasa".

By the way, Clannad also has a track in the soundtrack to "Message in a Bottle"

Do you know Yma Sumac's version of "El Condor Pasa"? I love Simon & Garfunkel's version, but in Yma's, it's like the bird that stretches its wings and takes off to the skies is painted so clearly, you can almost feel the brush of air from the flapping wings...

Talking about soundtracks

Postby Macha » Mon Sep 27, 2004 3:27 pm

Hi Grania,

I've got the soundtrack album "Back to Titanic" at home and I think that Moya sings very beautiful. I love this song "Come Josephine, in my flying machine". But I always asked myself, where the producers did get the lyrics. This song is very old. It is from 1911, the year before the sinking of the Titanic. I've got the first "Titanic"-Album, too. Which soundtracks do you have at home?

It would be great to hear from you soon!

Love, IrishGirlm

I don't have many soundtracks - it's not generally something I'm in to :oops:

As for the age of 'Come Josephine...', if you think about it, a lot of traditional songs are much older than that - look at some O'Carolan stuff - so it doesn't personally surprise me that the lyrics survived.

Are you interested in Titanic IrishGirlm? Me and elizabeth both are (excuse me saying that for you Lizzie :) :oops: ).
Maybe we should open a 'history discussion' section on the forum :wink:
Everyone tell me what you think, and if the idea is popular, I'll do it :)
Maybe for my 100th post, which can't be too far away now :mrgreen:
