With the live action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast coming out this week and all the excitement (Luke Evens, I mean C’mon now… The man is… and yes, Emma Watson, she’s absolutely perfect as Belle), I thought Lindsey Stirling’s musical interpretation is a lovely addition… (And if you think she transforms into Belle at the end, think again…)
Yes. I know. Y’all are tired of hearing about my love and obsession with the Wonder Boys movie, but tough… I love it. It helps me. I can’t explain it. It just does.
I’ve been listening to the soundtrack and there’s a lot of Bob Dylan on it. Some Leonard Cohen and John Lennon too. But there’s quite a bit of Bob Dylan. I’ve never listened to him a whole lot, but lately it seems I am. I like the sound and all.
Anyway, this is one of the tracks. And in many things, from the publishing business to politics… Things have definitely changed.
If you follow me on, well, anywhere online, you know how much I love the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. I have watched them all countless times over the years and it’s not likely to stop anytime soon. I sit up late and write and they play in the background. Whenever they’re replayed on TNT there is some unwritten law that states they must be watched right then and there.
I was wondering what to post today and the final song for the very final movie came to mind… It encompasses all 6 films. It is sung by Billy Boyd who played the part of Peregrin “Pippin’ Took in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. His voice is lovely. It is haunting. And it is fitting… For an ending…
I am so addicted to this song. I listen to it on repeat ALL THE TIME!
Reminds me of some old 70’s rock… I can’t say why. But I’m in love with the sound, the lyrics, her voice in it, the melody, the harmony… I’m in love with the feel of it. That good old rock feeling… That’s how music should be. It should give us all the feels… Every last damn one of them…
