MUSIC PIMP POST - Soundtracks

This time, I'm pimping ze soundtracks stuff. Meaning all stuff would probably be instrumental unless stated otherwise.

Remember the rules guyz
1) Snag
2) Comment

Also, I'll be keeping track on who comments and who doesn't. Then the LOCKED POSTS shall come in.

MUSIC POST -

Alan Silvestri - Forrest Gump Suite
-This is one of the prettiest piano suites I've ever heard for a soundtrack. Haunting and lilting at times, Alan Silvestri never disappoints.

Gasaraki - Love Song [vocals]
-MAN, I may not understand what the hell she's singing, but this is how love songs should be sung. Harsh and very tribalish at times, but very addictive.

Hans Zimmer - Kopana III - The Journey [vocals]
-I know we all love Hans Zimmer. But this is his best work ever. Tears of the Sun is his masterpiece where he brings together the sounds and feelings of Africa. I have yet to see him do better than this. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRACK)

Bryan Tyler - Inama Nushif (Montage) [vocals]
-I LOVE BRYAN TYLER. He did the most awesome job for the Children of Dune soundtrack. This particular song always makes me want to cry. It plays at the part where Paul is meditating and counting the minutes when Chani will die. BREAKS MY HEART. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRACK)

Shinkichi Mitsumune - Belladona's Snare
-Did I mention my love for piano tracks? Fast-paced with its own buildup, Shinkichi Mitsumune still retains his classical music flair.

Yoko Kanno - Run, Wolf Warrior [vocals]
-Yoko Kanno is a GODDESS OF MUSIC. As a die-hard soundtrack buff, Yoko Kanno's music still beats every single composer I've ever heard. (honestly, the variety of music she uses for each series/movie she composes stuns me every time). Unfortunately, I'm not uploading every single track. >.> That'll take me forever. But this one is really pretty and makes me think of wolves running through fields of grass. :D (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRACK)

Giovanni Mirabassi - Le Chante Pour Passer
-Honestly, I'm not 100% sure whether this is a soundtrack piece or not. Apparently, this is Byakuya's theme. Very pretty piano piece that captures Byakuya's personality SPOT ON. One of my favourite piano pieces to date.

John Ottman - So Long Superman
-This particular track depresses me at times. If you've seen the movie Superman Returns, you could probably guess where this track is from. I think John Ottman does a fairly good job with the soundtrack. I have more of his stuff, but this is my personal fave.

The London Symphony Orchestra - Laura's Theme

-Last time, I uploaded the Laura's Theme done in piano. This time, it's the actual orchestra theme. Can't say which one is prettier because I love them both. :D (H-H-Highly recommended)

Yeong Wook Jo - The Last Waltz

-I can't remember if I  uploaded this or not.  BUT it doesn't matter. This is a really nostalgic sounding piece with some really pretty violins. A must snag for string lovers (like moi)

Yoko Kanno - Spy
-Okay. I lied. This song suits any James Bond movie you'll ever see. It's just cool that way (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Akemi Kimura, Noriyuki Iwadare - Objection! (Phoenix Wright)

-Phoenix Wright  is one of the only games that has its own orchestral  soundtrack. Which rocks. So much.  A  must-snag song for EVERYONE.

Hyrule Symphony - The Legend of Zelda Medley
-Legend of Zelda. In STRINGS. You know you want it. XD (again,  highly recommended)

 Juno Reactor - Teahouse
-Because percussion rocks when done well. (this track was played during Seraph and Neo's battle)

NO BONUS TRACKS THIS TIME. @___@ And remember the rules.

snippet for a dead fandom

[spooksville, after 'The Dangerous Quest', Watch, Adam and emo]

"It seems too good," Adam said finally, "that this miracle happened."

Watch didn't say anything, just watched Adam fiddle with his hands.

"...I suppose I'm angry," Adam said bitterly, "Just a bit."

"I'd be surprised if you weren't," Watch admitted.

"You died," Adam said, squatting next to the grave, "And I did nothing."

"You were there till the very end," Watch murmured, "I know that the other me," he paused and continued, "was happy with that. After all, I would have been and we're the same."

Adam nodded and flicked some dust off the gravestone, "You told me once that I know you better than anyone."

"I feel like I don't know you"

"But you do. You know me better than anyone."

"We'll see"

"...I suppose we will"


"It's not like you to brood," Watch said curiously.

"A friend of mine just died," Adam said, "and then he's here, standing next to me. You're alive. He's dead. There are no distinctions and there should be. You died Watch. I buried you."

"I'm right here Adam."

"I know," Adam interrupted, "...I have regrets."

"That's normal."

"I suppose it is," Adam got up, "It's getting late. We need to be home by sunset."

Watch studied him from the corner of his eyes and wiped his glasses. Adam would not talk any further. Something had changed, Watch thought, and where it would lead them, even he could not divine.

But something had changed. Someone had died and returned. Watch was never sentimental, but Adam was. And Adam's sentimentality affected Watch deeper than he realized.

"If you're going to leave, then you can kill me"

"Don't make me do this."

"Adam, if you're going to leave, then you should kill me right now"
