On Monday, March 14, I received this interesting mail by Castor of Anomalous Material
I’m only going to take a minute of your time. I’m organizing a blogathon inspired from last year’s hugely popular “Desert Island DVD” (by Andy of Fandango Groover). This time, it will be a “Desert Island CD“. The concept is very simple, you are stranded on a desert island with only one CD (and a CD player etc…). What are 12 tracks that you would want to have with you? While those can be pop song, instrumentals etc… We are all movie bloggers so there is one requirement that each track comes from a movie soundtrack. Of course, you should give a little blurb for each to explain why as well as try to post YouTubes if possible/necessary.
I really enjoy Desert Island DVD, that blogathon had given me chance to meet a lot of nice and fun movie bloggers…so, without any hesitation, I jump into this special occasion.
Here are my Tracks:
1. Finale by L’Arc~en~Ciel
This song is from Ring O. My reason for picking this song is very simple, I LOVE L’Arc~en~Ciel and this song is the song that made me fall deeply in love with the band. L’Arc~en~Ciel has become my number 1 band above ALL bands in the world for the past 10 years. It will be impossible not to have this song included in the CD
I find this interesting video in youtube. I was going to post its music video but changed my mind after seeing this.
2. Supermassive Black Hole by Muse
This song is taken from Twilight. I hate twilight but I really love Muse and this song is one of my favorite muse songs. I never get tired of this song.
3. So New by Cillian Murphy
This song is from Disco Pigs. Well…ehm..anyone who knows me knows why I pick this song … it is because .. ehm *blushing* Cillian Murphy. There is nothing special about this song and the movie is also not my favorite Cillian’s movie, but his voice can easily calm me down when I feel lonely in my desert island 😉
The song stars on 0:53 (I was planning to share this on my Monthly Murphy one day )
4. I’ve Just Seen A Face by Jim Sturgess (originally by The Beatles)
This song is from Across The Universe. I love The Beatles and I love the way they cover the song with new tune. I’ve Just seen a Face is my favorite in the album. I often repeat this song every time I played the soundtrack album.
5. Manatsu No Yoru No Yume by Suga Shikao
This song is taken from Death Note (the animation series). Although I used poster from the movie,but this song is not from the movie, it is from the anime. I really like this song, it feels so sad but addictive.
6. Paint It Black by Rolling Stone
This song appears in Devil’s Advocate, Full metal Jacket, Salem’s Lot (Cover version) and Tour of Duty (TV Series). well, it’s Rolling Stone’s song!! That explained it all 🙂
I’ve liked this song since I first watched Tour of Duty and this song also introduced me to the amazing Rolling Stone.
7. Bari Improve by Kaki King
This is my favorite song from August Rush. As I have already said in one of Anomalous Material post, I really like August rush, both movie and soundtrack. My favorite of all is this song. I rarely listen to instrumental but this song has been in my play list for long.
8. Breakfast on Pluto by Don Partridge.
This song is from a movie with the same title, Breakfast on Pluto. Yes! it is Cillian Murphy’s movie and this is also one of my all time favorite movies … but if any of you are thinking that Cillian is the reason I chose this song, then I have to say ‘You are SO wrong! ‘
Ever since I saw the movie, I fell in love with the soundtrack instantly…all the songs are beautiful. even the soundtrack for the trailer is beautiful. Out of all the songs in the album, this one is my most favorite song.
9. A Hard Day’s Night by The Beatles
10. You’re The One That I Want by Olivia Newton John & John Travolta
11. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
12. Shinsoku (Lost Control) by L’Arc~en~Ciel
The song was used for “GODZILLA” and was included in the soundtrack “Godzilla the Album (Japanese edition)…so, you won’t find this song in US soundtrack version…but it is still considered as movie soundtrack, right?
Reason for choosing this is the same with number 1, because of L’Arc~en~Ciel.
You can see that most of the songs are taken from my favorite bands: L’Arc~en~Ciel, Muse, The Beatles, Queen, and Rolling Stone (I am a sucker for British Bands). When it comes to music, it’s not a problem whether the movie is good or not…it all comedown to the music itself.
