David Bowie – Heroes

From the soundtrack of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, one of the songs that brings up the nostalgia of the 90’s. Don’t worry, we can still be heroes, even if just for one day…

Bob Dylan – Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

An old record from 1973, written and sung by Bob Dylan. A personal favourite of mine that has a beautiful, simple execution with a sensible and meaningful message…

Jack White – Love is Blindness

For its deep, strong, haunting performance and for the way it makes you scream with all your powers against all that’s wrong, against shallowness and futility…

P.S.: In fact, I recommend you more songs from the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby like Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey or Over the Love by Florence + The Machine.

Stay tuned for more!

The Eagles – Hotel California

It seems like the summer rushed in sooner than usual. Something spiritual came with it, something to carry me away in a Californian Dream, in a land just like the one depicted in this song: “on a dark desert highway… cool wind in my hair… dancing in the courtyard”.

Just like the old times, when music was still music, when life was much simpler and much more beautiful… Let’s embrace that kind of peaceful atmosphere and let’s remember “such a lovely place”, such a powerful memory, even if it doesn’t exist. Let’s go to Hotel California… but be careful, you might be charmed and never leave… so did I…

It’s been a difficult week for me, a crossing point with no settled direction to follow, but a blindfolded drive. In this order of ideas I drawn a picture that should keep me on a straight road, even if the car I’m driving has dangerous increasing speed…

Without confessing my experiences anymore, I picked up a song from the American rock band Band of Horses, called The Funeral, the first single taken from Band of Horses’ debut album Everything All the Time, which was released on March 21, 2006.

Despite its gloomy title, The Funeral is so inspiring and motivational, a powerful song, emotional and expressive in the same time. It put me back on my feet, helping me starting a new chapter with no known destination. I’m going to enjoy the depth and the beauty of such an inspiring song. For now, the world is shut outside my own universe, where this song playing on the background.

pearl_harbor_-_soundtrack_a

In the last week I got lost in such a vast theme as the war. I was always charmed by the mistery of war, but don’t get me wrong… I don’t agree with the atrocity of war. Is just that there is something that always pulled me in such stories, especially if there is a moral attitude in them. So much to learn from such things… From films to TV shows, from novels to video games, this was a week dedicated to war from every point of view.

I know that Pear Harbor is not that high rated. Nevertheless it remains in my personal favourites, no matter what. As I said, I got back into the universe of war and I can’t leave such a universe without reminding this film. With this thought in my mind, I chose this week’s song, Tennessee, from the original soundtrack made by Hans Zimmer for this film. Zimmer is a great composer and score producer in the world of film, know for his soundtrack works in films such as Pearl Harbor, Gladiator, The Lion King, The Dark Knight or The Pacific.

Tennessee is one of my favourites… It is so calming and relaxing and it not makes you think about war whatsoever, but you should bear in mind that it’s not aiming toward such a purpose. Tennessee is one of the songs that I listen when I’m looking for a deep, sensitive state in my soul, when I want to relax and just enjoy the sound of life… and I often lose myself into such a peaceful tune, into that mystical universe of Tennessee…

With the hope that I haven’t lost you, please, rip off 3 minutes out of your precious time and listen to this piece of art. It really deserves…
