Musings From A Musical Mind

Soundtracks Of Our Lives

Whenever I see another good movie – I always take note of how the music plays an important role in that journey – as I’m watching it.

Music is what is said when words just don’t say enough.  It becomes a vehicle  touching something without words – that is indescribable.

When we saw ‘Secretariat‘ last week – I knew this movie would be great because of the wonderful musical score that was used.  It did what it was supposed to do – bring emotion and help the audience feel something when mere words are just not enough.  I sat there mesmerized – teary eyed and deeply moved. The story itself is amazing – but the music….inspirational.

Other movies that have done this are:

Meet Joe Black – Probably my favorite musical score – hauntingly beautiful.

Apollo 13 – Amazing – brings out the emotions especially at the end

From the Earth to the Moon (mini series) – backing up Kennedy’s speech is a thing of beauty – and both my husband and I get teary eyed when watching this – no matter how many times we’ve seen it!

Anne of Green Gables (mini series) The ‘Anne’ theme is a work of art

Titanic – Sounds just like you’d expect – with mystery, water sounds and ‘ghosts’ of the past

To Kill A Mockingbird – based on a simple child’s melody – and builds into an amazing  journey that makes you believe you’re really living the adventure.

And the list goes on and on.  Any great film – usually always has a great musical score – to compliment and bring out what the words cannot.

As a musician, I am well aware of the power of music.  It sets the tone, enhances and most of all – music has a language that everyone can understand.  This is why we all have our favorite songs – and our favorite moments in life.  And they are usually surrounded by our favorite song.  If we think back to those great moments that shaped us – good or bad – we can usually always think of that moment – and be transported in time – when we hear that song.

Below is one of two musical scores found on youtube from the movie, ‘Secretariat’.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

God Bless

No Mistakes…Yet

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ~~~ Anne of Green Gables

I have always loved “Anne of Green Gables” – the scenery – the story – the life applications – there are so many wonderful things in that story.  I’ve read all the books and also LOVED the mini series put out by BBC in the mid 80’s.   The soundtrack for this series is also very beautiful and puts me in a mood of happiness and joy.  I have the “theme” song from this for piano and often will play it to unwind and reset a mood of mine from a trying or difficult day.

I am with Anne on the above quote.  How often have I thought those very words myself.  In a world full of stress and interesting people – where my time is demanded in so many different directions and my attention can be pulled in here and there – It is a given that I  WILL  make many mistakes each day.  I probably make more in my head than I actually “act” on – but to me it is the same thing.  It is nice to think about waking up in the morning with “no mistakes” at least – yet.

A Woman’s Morning Prayer

Dear Lord, So far today, I am doing all right.  I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or self-indulgent.  I have not whined, grumbled, cursed, or eaten any chocolate.  I have not charged on my credit card.  However, I am going to get out of bed in a few minutes, and I will need a lot more help after that.  Amen.

I can relate.  Oh boy.  Can you?

I’m praying for you – that you too will look upon this new day with increased anticipation – as you are further along on your own “journey” – and think of it as a new day – with “no mistakes” in it – yet.


God Bless
