Brian Sibley has kindly stripped me of one of my evenings by tagging me with a request for seven songs that I like at the moment. I found this oddly difficult! Well here we go. I hasten to add that some of these are embarrassing!!
1. We're Gonna Change the World - Matt Monroe
I heard this recently on the radio and it instantly made me think of travelling in the car as a child with my parents, listening to their music that I hated at the time but actually like nowadays. I haven't actually listened to it since that one radio broadcast but I've had it stuck in my head for the past two weeks! (Apologies for the lack of proper video, I couldn't find one).
2. Joy to the World - Three Dog Night
This was featured on a fairly recent TV advert for Sky TV and I really loved the jolly tune. Of course the ad was animated in 2D which sold it to me even more!
3. Never Had a Friend Like Me - Robin Williams
I couldn't have a list of favourites without Disney creeping in. My current favourite Disney song is this fantastic offering from Aladdin's Genie.
4. Sweet About Me - Gabriella Cilmi
Just a recent song that I like as it has an interesting sound that isn't on every other song on the radio.
5. You've Got a Friend in Me - Randy Newman
Another Disney one. I find this the most comforting of any song from an animated film. Always nice to know you have a friend! I hope Randy's music in next year's new 2D Disney movie is as good as this.
6. Here It Goes Again - OK Go
Yes after countless series, each worse than the last, I'm still watching Big Brother. This song was recently featured on it, with the housmates having to recreate the famous video. What a life I lead watching this stuff!
7. Singin' In The Rain (Original Version) - Gene Kelly
You may know of a break-dancing kid from Manchester making the remixed version of this popular after winning Britain's Got Talent...hmmm you wouldn't know from watching that show. Anyway I like the music but not as much as I like the original version. This scene from the movie is something that sadly isn't in films anymore. From both a moviegoer's and animator's point of view, this is fantastic to watch.
So there we have it! Now I have to tag seven other bloggers. Well this unfortunate lot are next:
"Bitter" (My Medicated Cartoon Life)
Franco (Enliven Animations)
Kevin (Cartoons, Model Sheets and Stuff)
Mel (Melmade the Blog)
Arthur (Arthur Gil Larsen)
Andrew (Andrew Glazebrook)
