Hello Little Lights, it is time for another post! Mallow tagged me for something quite awesome! Thanks Mallow! Visit Mallow! He listed some of his favourite Movie Themes. A top four! However 4 is an unlucky number and I am unlucky already..so I decided to make it five! I always feel a bit stressed when making a top 5 as it basically forces me to rank things against each other and maybe other movie themes would get sad! There are so many that are great! So instead of doing top 5, I decided to change this to Fantastic Five! A random grab of five things that are super awesome! Not ranked and maybe not even my favourite 5! Just five I want to talk to you about today!
This post will feature 5 videos and they are best Listened to while reading their respective Paragraphs! So please visit this post on my actual site!
Power Rangers The Movie (1995): Go Go Power Rangers
With a guitar Riff that immediately takes you back to the 90’s you know what is heading your way when you watch this movie! Yet.. these first notes also surprise you.. where is that iconic sound.. of impending thunder and lighting, that guitar roll that is so linked to the show!
It follows soon! In this day and age I think this is the best rendition of the theme because of those few opening notes! Thus qualifying as a movie theme! As the series never had those first few Riffs! I always wanted to be a Power Ranger, and to an extent I would still like to be! Not only is this one of THE best childhood themes out there.. it also also a theme of escapism to me! I’d be able to unwind with Power Rangers.. hoping that one day I might find the strength to stand up to my bullies! That I would morph into a more confident person that can stand up to them.. and that I did! I never expected to grow up as a Pink Moth.. but at least I have a great idea of what my Zord would be! “Mothra Pink Ranger Power”
Dragon Ball Super Broly: Blizzard
So a re-dub of a song that is about a movie.. that once again is a series! However this song really is unique to this movie! The music is so different from what you usually hear! It’s so unique and Megami’s textual interpretation shows how well she knows the source material! I love how she wrote the song from Broly’s perspective. While I prefer subs in anime.. I really like dubbed music so I can understand the lyrics and while there is an orginal english version I have not found it as audible as Megami’s version! That doesn’t stop the music from this track to be pretty amazing though! I really like it. Dragon Ball Super Broly is the most expensive movie I ever went to! By FAR! Not only did I pay top dollar to see it 4D.. which was amazing to have steam going off around you and your chair shaking at powerful punches, but I also travelled half the country to find a theater that ran a 4d version in Japanese. It was a great memory and the song to me reflects that.
Catch me if you Can : Catch me if you Can
If I have a favourite movie, it will probably be this one! Steven Spielberg did a great job of telling the tale of Frank Abignail Junior. The casting was amazing, the atmosphere so fun and it is just an extraordinary tale! The main theme is unique and has this elusive quality! Just when you think you get the melody it slightly shifts! And that is exactly what this movie is about so when I first realised that I was like OH MY ARCEUS! I love this! It might not be a thing I can bob my head to but I can flail it from right to left in a seizure like fashion as I do know this melody quite well by now! It is just a very fascinating theme to me! A;also for some reason I really like movies featuring Tom Hanks and Airports! I am not sure why! I love the Terminal as well! But that one doesn’t have too much of an amazing song! It also misses the best knock knock joke ever!
Children of Dune: Summon the Worms
I am really messing this one up! Not only is this song from a Mini series rather than a movie, I also did not get it from said mini series. I actually know this song from another tv series where it was used as the title sequence. It was a dutch show called Peking Express, which basically is our translation for Orient Express. It was a show very similar to the great race and it involved people having to hitchhike from Moscow to Beijing. With some special challenges along the way. It was a great show with an even better opening. The drums in the song are timed with the beating of some sort of chinese tower at the end of the trip! Would your favourite couple make it to the finish line.. it got you pumped and hyped, and then I watched Children of Dune with a young James McAvoy …It was not what I had expected.
Dune.. to me .. is kinda boring! Not gonna lie! Luckily it will always have this amazing soundtrack! I know it has a lot of fans but it went way too political with me! I just wish my eyes were as blue as Leo Artreides!
The Rock : Hummel gets the Rockets
Golly gosh I love this music Track! It would probably be my favourite Theme of all times. There just so much to unpack! So dynamic, so epic! And once again, I fell in love with this not because of a movie but because of a tv series! In this case it was Expeditie Robinson. A show originally from Sweden that in America got adapted to Survivor. Sixteen people get dropped on an Island and have to survive and determine who is worthy to stay on the island. I loved this show for many many years, but at one point the scheming element got so out of hand that people could get extra votes and negative votes. At one point 8 people were left but 32 votes were cast, to kick the most deserving survivor off because he was too big of a threat. I don’t mind casting out a treat.. but the episode was so convoluted and sucky that I dropped the series after. Luckily the movie is still pretty good so if I want to hear the theme song I can still watch Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery break into Alcatraz to stop some sparkly ball missile treat! That’s the worst kind of missile treat!
So Mallow tagged four people to do this challenge! It’s a bit of his own thing and this is not meant as a Blog Challenge I think… however! I am going to try something out! I am challenging my STAFF to do this tag as well!
Periwinkle, Sunny, Kuro and Indigo, I challenge you to come up with a list of movie themes that is as good as mine!… or Mallows! and like always my normal rules of tagging apply!
Mention that you want to be nominated and I will make it look as if you were nominated all along! I look good, you get a tag.. we both win! And with that I shall be off for now! I hope you enjoyed some great movie soundtracks with me! Shine on my little lights! Oyasumi!
