In honor of St. Patricks Day I thought that I would share some of my favorite Irish Rockers. My absolute favorite Irish artist is Van Morrison but for today I thought I would expand my horizons (U2 being an exception) Sláinte
I love movies. There is something about the anticipation you feel when going to see a new movie. Buying Junior Mints and a bottle water then searching for that perfect seat then escaping from reality for two hours is exquisite. During those two hours a good movie will make you completely forget that you are sitting in a large dark room with a bunch of strangers. Movies and music rank at the top of my entertainment list. When there is a perfect combination of the two …. A created soundtrack is exquisite.
The lack of a great soundtrack won't destroy a good movie, but a good one, a well-chosen one, a memorable one, can turn a solid film into something superb. Well-chosen songs can complement and deepen the on-screen images, shading in emotional tonalities and giving the film an anchor in time. This cuts both ways, of course. It's impossible to think of "Easy Rider" without hearing Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild" as a symbol of '60s freedom. The brilliant soundtracks to John Hughes films such as "Sixteen Candles," and "The Breakfast Club" introduced a generation of teens to totally excellent, totally mopey British bands such as the Jesus and Mary Chain and Echo and the Bunnymen
