score movies

Thank you for answering that question lol but besides that, what's your favorite type of music? :0

Movie scores are what I listen to the most. Right now I’m listening to the Take Shelter one. It’s very quiet and serene with a hint of sadness when the strings kick in.

Other than that I listen to a bit of many different things, but as I put it before, I am picky… Quite often I find myself listening to one single song on a loop for ages? I like repetition I suppose. Recently I had TV by Summer Cannibals on a loop a lot, as well as Ghost Page by Red Vox.

Going further than what I was asked but while I don’t have a Josuyasu playlist cause it would be horrible to make one out of sad songs lol there is a song called My Chariot by The Depreciation Guild I’ve labeled my Josuyasu song pick. I see it as being sang from Josuke’s perspective where he’s trying to reach to Oku through his troubled past, but not quite getting it. Also the music video, fittingly shot in Japan, is basically them two hanging out.

Takatsugu Muramatsu

I bought the soundtrack for Studio Ghibli’s latest film, When Marnie Was There, in anticipation of its western release next month, and I have to say that it’s absolutely stunning. Muramatsu’s score is heartwarming, nostalgic, emotionally affecting, and lushly orchestrated; it’s the most beautiful listening experience I’ve had in some time. Studio Ghibli films always have lovely scores, but this one is so particularly soulful and enchanting that I feel compelled to share a bit of it with Tumblr. If you like what you hear, please buy this score! It’s available on the iTunes store and it’s an ethereal listening experience.

Adele’s album is a cinematic piece. It’s beautiful music that you can play along with your feelings. But it didn’t take any risk. It was a safe album that explores what we’re used to. There’s nothing wrong with liking that album.

Beyoncé’s album, on the other hand, took a ton of risks, made a bunch of conversations, launched and inspired so many people (and not to mention think pieces), that it was basically talked about time and time again while Adele’s music could have been used in movies and scores. It revived an interest in country music, rock music, being studied as an art form in classes. 

So, the sales were not as high as Adele’s because of the time it was released. However, I don’t recall Adele being as influential. I wasn’t singing “Hello” all year long. No one talked about Adele a lot. Adele wasn’t lampooned by SNL. Even Adele was shocked that she won.

So yeah… what does Beyoncé have to do to win? 

Before you say anything about “sales,” there were people who won based on talent, like Esperanza Spalding. 

And the next question we’re going to get asked is “Why there is a BET Black Awards?” 

You can see why… when it comes to being on a national stage, we can bring the people to the party, but we can’t take accolades home.
