Musical Moments – Joker dancing to Prince!

I totally forgot just how impressive this scene is from Batman (1989) and with Jack Nicholson in the role as the Joker doing a fantastic dance to Partyman by Prince. It really is just one of those scenes where the music fights so perfectly with the characters and film as a whole.

Blue Finch Film Releasing are delighted to announce that Life With Music, starring Sir Patrick Stewart, Katie Holmes and Giancarlo Esposito, will be available on digital download from 27th July.

Henry Field (Patrick Stewart) is an acclaimed concert pianist and one of the great virtuosi of his era. Upon returning to the stage after a prolonged absence, he finds himself suddenly afflicted with a severe case of stage fright. His once effortless play has abruptly turned into a self-conscious struggle of every bar. Old wounds have crept up on the master as he now fights to ward off artistic disaster.

Enter Helen Morrison (Katie Holmes), a music critic with a kindred spirit and a troubled past of her own. Helen believes she might hold the key to Henry’s return to form, but she must first overcome his defences and win his trust. As Henry’s condition starts to improve, the blossoming relationship takes an unexpected turn which could precipitate his downfall. Unless he finally faces his demons and the darker truth lurking beneath the glory of the stage.

Musical Moments – The Sopranos Theme

Over the past few weeks I have eventually had the time to watch The Sopranos, all six outstanding and amazing seasons of it! I can now fully understand why it is regarded as one of the greatest tv series of all time, its truly amazing. So in celebration of finishing it all yesterday I though what better way to start this Monday than having the theme song of ‘Woke Up This Morning’ by Alabama 3?

Musical Moments – We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

We’ll Meet Again is a song that was first around in World War II and was sung to the troops by Vera Lynn before they left England to fight. The lyrics are truly poignant and powerful, last night The Queen addressed the nation and finished by saying we will meet again and other references to the war were within the speech. So since then I have been thinking about this song especially considering it reminds me of my Nanna who was evacuated during WWII so much so we had it as the final song at her funeral.
