Volume 150: Soundtracks, MovieSongs

Allright!!! 150 Posts!!! Champagne!!! 😉 I was wondering if I should keep this “edition” until Friday for the weekly special, but what the heck! It’s 150 posts TODAY and so we celebrate today! Inspired by this post I will share with you today my top 5 movie songs, always one of my favorite topics. This is my very personal selection of great music from the movies, you might have seen some of them here before and there is so much more!… Whenever possible I will show you NOT the movie scenes but the musicians, just for a change 🙂 Enjoy them anyway!!

W.A. Mozart – Clarinet Concert Adagio (from out of Africa)

Keith Jarrett & Jan Garbarek – Country (from wonderful movie “Bella Martha”/”Mostly Martha”) played by a no name band – but it is a great performance

Americano (from the talented Mr. Ripley) – Maintitle from tha movie by Gabriel Yared, worth listening to but not available on youtube…

Thomas Newman – Whistle Stop Cafe (from the wonderful movie “Fried Green Tomatoes”)  please listen to the full soundtrack (on youtube) – it is just magical music

Elvis Presley – a little less conversation (remix from Ocenas Eleven – another very cool full soundtrack!)

Volume 21: Soundtracks

Just a few of the movie sounds I do love very much – they are all on the softer side.

The Perfume- Laura (sorry for the video, but the sound is great…) Listen loud. And go see the movie!

Out of Africa – I’m better at Hello

Fried green Tomatoes – The Whistle Stop Cafe

Franky and Johnny – Claire de Lune (don’t cry, its just a movie… But the music is wonderful and was used for the final scene in Oceans Eleven as well… )

The Firm – Main Theme (before y’all fall asleep listen to some great piano from Dave Grusin – and an encore below…)

The Firm – Memphis Stomp
