Seeing as I like music so much, I thought for today, why not put my iPod on shuffle and tell you about each of the songs that comes up? Let's try it out. I'll do ten songs this time.
"Wolves v. Vampires" by Alexandre Desplat
This is a track from the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack by one of my fave composers. It's not my favorite song, but it's not awful either. I mostly use it on my writing playlist as background.
"Harry Surrenders" by Alexandre Desplat
Ah, this is one of my favorite scores by Desplat! "Harry Surrenders," from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, has this sort of helpless desperation as Harry moves into the forest to give himself up to Voldemort. I love it. Orchestral stuff is great.
"Mistake" by Demi Lovato
A little harsher than most my fare lyric-wise, "Mistake" is a pretty good one by Demi Lovato, who's one of my favorite singers. "Mistake" is a reaction to a boy, telling him that she's done with him and he's made his greatest mistake.
"At Midnight" by the New Mexico 2012 All State Mixed Choir
Ah, All State. This particular year I was in Treble, not Mixed Choir, but this is one of my favorites by the Mixed, which my best friend was in. It's a beautiful women's-only track about nature, music, and worship.
"Sorcery and Sudden Vengeance" by Harry Gregson-Williams
A track from the The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian score, by another very good composer, though this is another one I don't often actively listen to. It's pretty well-done.
"The Maze" by Patrick Doyle
From Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, this is a pretty long, also decent one. Another track I use as background for writing.
"Get Back" by Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato again! Huh! Well, this is another good one by her. Intense musically and very fun to sing, it's one of those "I want to get back with you" relationship songs.
"If Everyone Cared" Nickelback
This is one of my most favorite groups. Nickelback is great, in my opinion, although apparently a lot of people disagree. But I love the vocals and the lyrics both. Some unique guitar/drum stuff goes on in these songs too. "If Everyone Cared" is both a love story and a commentary on how the world could be changed through love. Very sweet stuff.
"A Musicological Journey through the Twelve Days of Christmas" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Whether you're Mormon or not, the MoTab is severely talented. Their tracks are always well done and beautiful, and their Christmas work, which I have in abundance, is no different. This particular track goes through the "Twelve Days of Christmas" song, using the styles of different time period styles each day. It's brilliant and amusing.
"In Dreams" by the New Mexico 2012 All State Treble Choir
I was in this choir, but this wasn't my favorite song. It's a Native American song about the power of dreams and such. It's very pretty, but as an Alto 2, I spent the entire song going "dumadumdum..." Yeah.
That was pretty fun. Tell me what you think about it! And thanks for reading. *Saturday's post has been removed.*
