I wrote a post around the same time last year called Favorite Movie Music, where I made two different list of my favorite movie soundtrack and scores. Well, I’m going to highlight one from each list that I never grow tired of listening to:
Fave film score: Somewhere in Time
An unabashedly romantic film about love that travels through time starring a young Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. The music by composer John Barry truly makes the movie with it’s haunting and melancholic theme, it moves me to my core every time I hear it. They say it the best love story is the unrequited ones, and it doesn’t get any more heart-wrenching-ly tragic than this.
Fave soundtrack: Moulin Rouge
I love the inventive way the songs are used throughout this movie, and the soundtrack truly complement the Bohemian and vibrant sensibilities of the movie. It makes old songs sound and feel new again, and make me prefer them over the original on some songs. Baz Luhrmann let the main actors Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor sang their hearts out in this movie, and boy did they deliver! It’s hard to pick which scenes of their duet are my favorite, but this wonderful Elephant Medley is definitely one of them. I fell for McGregor’s brazen charm and gorgeous voice!
