Soundtrack Thursday

Hello folks and welcome to a brand new feature called Soundtrack Thursday!

Every Thursday I’ll be posting a music track from a film or TV soundtrack.  Why?  It’s because I love soundtracks.  If I’m on Spotify, it dominates my playlists.  So I thought, why not share it?

From John Williams to Hans Zimmer or even a Quentin Tarantino playlist from one of his films, film scores are underrated.  When music is done right, they provide a voice to a scene or a character and evoke an emotion.  What better way to recognise those achievements and those talented artists by highlighting it in a blog post.

And why Thursday?  Well it fits in the spirit of #throwbackthursday and it’s the day before Friday so why not kick start it with a bang.  Think of it as a movie/TV playlist for the weekend.

And I don’t want this to be a singular voice.  I want you guys to participate as well.  Send me your suggestions.  Even better, if you have a few words on why the track is great – perfect.  That’s the exact response I want for this feature.  Use my contact page and email me your suggestions with a link to the track.

And spread the word.  Use #SoundtrackThursday on social media.  Share and engage.

So let’s get this party started in this inaugural Soundtrack Thursday post.

“A Whole New World” – Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle

Film: Aladdin

Aladdin was the first film I ever saw at the cinema and the song “A Whole New World” was one of the defining tracks of my childhood.  You wasn’t a 90s person if you didn’t know this song!

What are your memories of A Whole New World?  Comment below.

Check back next week to find out the next track selection on the playlist.
