Musings From A Musical Mind

Not long ago I was in the car listening to one of the many CD selections on my own “mix” of favorite tunes.  Thinking that this must be from one of my favorite soundtracks, “Meet Joe Black” I listened and then put it out of my mind. No, it wasn’t “Meet Joe Black” – but there was something familiar about it.  But just where did I find it?

Last week we watched “Finding Nemo” again.  It had been years since we had seen this – always one of our favorites!  And to my surprise – this same soundtrack began to play.  I guess I should not have been surprised to learn that Thomas Newman wrote both of these great scores – plus many more that I love, including “Little Women”, “Fried Green Tomatoes”, “Up close and personal” and “The Horse Whisperer”.  There is a haunting similarity to all these scores – but different enough that you can definitely tell the difference.  All I know is that the music really sets the tone to any great movie – and his certainly make all the difference for me.

And if it’s been a while since you’ve seen “Finding Nemo” – I just thought I’d share this great track from that movie with you – and I encourage you to see the other films listed here – you’ll just love the soundtracks!


God Bless

    I sure agree about soundtracks help making a movie great. What a great song writer–I did not know that. I get a kick out of the way the music changes depending on the scene. Highly dramatic life and death fighting is the funniest music to me.

    I have never seen that movie. It is on Direct TV once in awhile. I will record it so I and my wife can watch it.
