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
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.
