First up, I’d like to congratulate Billy K Band for making the Nashville Tennessee Music Charts. We interviewed him back in 2011 before his recent album (Outrun the Rain) was started. He also has a page now on MTV and CMT.
It’s an album with a tremendous amount of feeling. I’ve now listened to it a number of time and it’s now one of those I put on my hot list. If you haven’t heard it, take a listen and let me know what you think.
Last on my list to talk about today is the Oscar for Sound Editing.
If you hadn’t heard it was a tie this year between Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty.
This is one of the category I usually get right on the picks, and well this year I was half right.
Not an easy category to pick when you understand what it is all about, but if a movie messes this up you definitely know. I remember when I heard We Come in Peace without the proper sound in it. Makes a big difference.
The same with Sound Mixing, if it’s done poorly it’s the first thing you pick up on in a movie.
Congrats to the Oscar winners.
Pitch Perfect, is the story of a college a capella singing group and the competition. Although I never want to give the whole plot away I would like to say that the start of this movie was what caught me. Know one expects someone to “blow chucks” as the phrase goes during a competition right onto the audience. From that moment on I figured this had to be a funny and surprising movie. Stars Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp (from True Blood) and more talented actors.
Song in this movie include: “The Sign”, “212, “Lost in It”, “Let It Whip”, “Punching in A Dream”, “Keep You”, “Don’t Move”, “Titanium”, “Cups”, “No Diggity”, “Bulletproof”, plus alot more.
Joyful Noise is the story of a church choirs competition. This shows that not all gospel music has to be old fashioned. The sub-story adds flavor to the mix and the music brings it all together. This movie stars Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer, Jeremy Jordan as well as many others including a small part by Kris Kristofferson.
Song in this movie include: “Not Enough”, “Man in the Mirror”, “Maybe I’m Amazed”, “From Here To The Moon and Back”, “Higher Medley”, and others.
See which one appeal to you more and above all enjoy the music.
