The invention of zero was actually a major breakthrough in math. There was even a celebration for the inventor. At the climax, the MC turned to him and intoned,
"THANKS --------- FOR NOTHING."

The original "Godzilla" has nice music.

Listen when the ships are leaving to fight Godzilla. A perky naval theme.

Also, when the camera shot pans over the distruction of Tokyo. Somber, quiet, and beautiful.

Original "Godzilla". Now there's a blast from the past. Can't recall any music, though.

I liked the scene from one of the Godzilla vs. somebody-or-other movies where Godzilla is flying backward through the air, curled up like a giant shrimp. For some reason this amuses me. Can't remember any music there, either.

I liked some of the background score from the new Godzilla, particularly where she was tearing up downtown Sandy Eggo.

I really like the new Phantom of the Opera (from the movie) soundtrack. It's decent. . .and I'm a sucker for sing-a-longs.

You know what, I just saw the movie with my daughter and she loved the music but I wasn't that thrilled. lioness, can you recommend another?

Unfortunately, it just played live in my town and I'm so damn busy I didn't have time to go or was so tired I simply prefered sleeping.

Rock N' Learn's "Addition and Subtraction," DVD

Try "Having Fun " or
"Everyone Rock "

I'm convinced that Brad Caudle--who is an electrical engineer by trade--is a phenonmenal musician. Google him and check out his custom made bass guitar. What a monster fretboard!

I believe the singing on this DVD is actually Jean July, a jazz singer, and the girl shown is lip syncing. Her name eludes me at the moment, but she was a runner-up Miss Teenage Texas.

I don't know if any one's mentioned this (since I'm studying for a test and had to quickly scan the boards during a five minute break I allowed myself) but I quite like the soundtrack to "Secret Window" by Philip Glass.

I'm generally not much of a 20th cen. minimalist person but I thought that the music went really well with the movie (especially the creepy trombone stinger right at the end; see I have a bit of a one track mind). I've tried to find it on CD but maybe they thought it wouldn't be good on its own (ie without the movie). Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there.

Soundtracks rule!

Hi TP. I think Phillip Glass's music goes well WITH something, just not STRAIGHT.

The Phantom CD with Brightman and Crawford is the NY cast of the musical - the CD of the movie cast sounds different. Try both in the music store before you buy or just buy 'em both.

About those "Glass" posts up there; you're right. Glass is better with liquor. Makes sense. Glass, Cage, all that lot; I'd rather have the "Small World" song stuck in my head.

I'm very fond of Cage's 4'33".
I'd like to play it each day during my commute.

The connection between film music and "classical" is long and strong. Back in the 30s when the first film composers came to their challenge they realized that composers of opera and program music had already solved the problem of writing for stories, so they modeled their work on what had already been done. The main model was, and is, Wagner. His leading motive idea with its variations has been used for 3/4 of a century now.

Don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but Mahler, Holst, and Vaughn Williams were also very influential in early (and consequently later) film music. A good example from Mahler is his first symphony (I think this is the one; been a while since I listened to it). There's a few passages in there that sound straight off a Korngold soundtrack. I can almost see Errol Flynn swashin' some buck every time I listen to it.

YES, Depp plays the guitar piece; and NO he did not learn guitar just for the movie. He started out a musician with his own band (acting paid for his music). At least, that's what he said when he was on "Inside the Actor's Studio".

Thanks for posting that. I've always wondered who played it. I checked the liner notes once way back when but couldn't see any names. That soundtrack got me hooked on Djano but I can't find any good recordings. I tried the originals but they are so tinny and old-fashioned that I was gritting my teeth within 2 minutes of putting it on. Anybody got suggestions of recordings?

As for my favorite soundtracks I think most have been mentioned but a few others that I really enjoy are "First Knight", "Dragonheart", and to tie in with the Chocolat beginnings of the post: "Benny and Joon", and "Ed Wood". "Ed Wood" makes me laugh every time I hear it. Why is it that Johnny Depp movies seem to have such great soundtracks?
