Gravity Soundtrack Preview

By: Brendan

One of my favorite things about the new Sandra Bullock space movie Gravity was its music. I was surprised to see an unfamiliar name credited. The man responsible is Steven Price, who has worked on “additional music” for several film composers and was responsible for scoring The Worlds End. You can hear a preview for his work on Gravity below.

Muruch’s Classic Albums Appreciation Club: Week 29

Granted, Van Halen’s 1984 has more nostalgic value than timeless artistic merit as the band’s heavy use of synths keeps the music firmly dated in the early 1980s. Yet despite all the electro-80s flourishes, 1984 is still a mostly solid rock album. And pop-rock hits “Jump,” “Panama” and “Hot for Teacher” are just as catchy and enjoyable now as when I first heard them. Now for one of my all-time favorite soundtracks…

This week’s classic album is…Footloose Soundtrack.

To recap the procedure here: At the beginning of each week, I’ll post brief thoughts on the previous week’s listening experience along with the coming week’s classic album selection. Then sometime in the week that follows, we’ll all take the time to listen to the album from beginning to end with no distractions. It can be as simple as just getting away from the computer to listen alone or you can make an event of it with candles, beverages and friends. Whatever format you play the album in or the manner in which you listen, just give the music your full and undivided attention.

Feel free to comment or email your opinions of our selections and recommendations for classic albums (from any decade, including this one).
