So with any imaginative design or idea, you wonder what it would look like in real life. It’s not any different with a novel. The real life would be a movie :). Trust me, I’ve had a full-on list of who I would list as my leading man and lady (that’s for another day). BUT, with any movie, the soundtrack is crucial as well. Which brings me to today’s music – I’ve picked two because I can’t really decide which one I like better. I could save one for next week…but I’m impatient….So enjoy two!
1) Chris Brown’s Beautiful People – I chose this because I see this in one of two ways. There is a particular scene that I have my leading man and lady go out into Boston’s nightlife. For some reason I see this playing in the background during some dialogue. The second being at the end of the movie, where the story is coming to an end (or is it? MWHAHA) and it kinda fades out on this happy optimistic note.
2) William Joseph’s Within – Now this pick is a little outside of what you would know (but if you do know it, 50 billion brownie points for you!). Your soundtrack has to be able to convey a mood. A emotion to going along with the drama and action that is being expounded. I picked this song because it conveys a sense of mischief but intrigue. Whimsical yet strong. It has a waltz-like tone to it but the percussion underneath it gives it a modern flair. I see this happening during a reactionary moment for my leading lady. Where she finally realizes something and just guns it! An awakening that is deep, scary and fulfilling at once.
Sorry, this post came out a bit longer than originally planned. But just as words can be a doorway to expression, music follows the same and familiar path. Listen to them and tell me what you think of my choices! Atypical? Strange?
