The beauty of the Captain Fantastic sountrack

Happy Monday, folks. I hope you all had pleasant weekends. After a nearly six-year break I'm returning to one of my regular series: Musical Mondays. Read my previous posts online and get comfy as I treat your ears to some dulcet delights. When I'm trying to concentrate on what I'm doing the Captain Fantastic (2016) soundtrack...

[Musical Monday] Introducing Vindsvept

While trying to find atmospheric music on YouTube to accompany us as we played Carcassonne, my boyfriend and I stumbled across the Swedish composer and musician that goes by Vindsvept. As far as I've been able to find out, 'Vindsvept' isn't a Swedish name or word. It appears to be made up; an original pseudonym... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Rock of Ages

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had great weekends. My weekend included a visit to the BBC Good Food Festival, a trip to the cinema to see Rock of Ages and a re-watch of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Over the last few years there has been a steady stream of musicals at the cinema, and... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] A Knight’s Tale

On the way to work the other morning one of my favourite David Bowie songs, 'Golden Years', came on my iPod. Whenever I hear this song it always reminds me of the fabulous ball scene in A Knight's Tale. Released in 2001 and starring the late Heath Ledger against Rufus Sewell, Shannyn Sossamon and Paul Bettany, A Knight's... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Kill Bill: Vol 1

For this week's edition of Musical Monday I'm taking a look at my favourite Tarantino film, Kill Bill: Vol 1, and its sequel, Kill Bill: Vol 2. Uma Thurman takes on the role of The Bride, a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. On finding out that she is pregnant she decides to leave the Squad, much... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Back to the Eighties

This weekend I watched a very strange medley of film: two James Bond films (On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Diamonds Are Forever), a hard-hitting drama (Hard Candy) and a comedy (Yes Man). It is the latter from which I take inspiration for this week's Musical Monday post. Yes Man (2008) stars Jim Carrey as... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Groovy, baby, yeahhh!

Happy Monday, folks. Hope you all had fantastic weekends. For this week's edition of Musical Monday I took inspiration from a TV show shown on the BBC on Saturday, Let's Dance for Sports Relief. In the show a group of celebrities take to the dance floor in a bid to be crowned Let's Dance For... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] AFI’s Greatest Movie Musicals

While searching for inspiration for this week's Musical Monday I stumbled across the American Film Institute's Greatest Movie Musicals list, which was released in 2006. While the musical genre isn't a particular of mine - I'm a fantasy/action/adventure kinda girl - I've seen and enjoyed quite a few musicals, including Moulin Rouge!, The Wizard of...

[Musical Monday] Back to the Future

Last week, for the very first time - yes, you did read that right - I watched Back to the Future. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Back to the Future is the first of three films that follow Marty and his friend, eccentric inventor Doc Brown, as they travel backwards, and forwards, in... Continue Reading →
