artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

question of the day: What piece of music do you wish had been used in a movie so you could see the visuals and story that go with it?

Tubular Bells II Mike Oldfield

Today’s question is the B side of yesterday’s “What pop songs always remind you of the films they were used in?” Which is:

What piece of music do you wish had been used in a movie so you could see the visuals and story that go with it?

This was inspired partly by the Olympics opening ceremony, which featured British musician Mike Oldfield and his piece “Tubular Bells” (which was, of course, featured in The Exorcist). Which reminded me that I hadn’t listened to his masterful Tubular Bells II in ages. And when I listened again, I was struck (again) by how cinematic the movements are, and how cool their movies would be. I’d especially love to see the sections “Sentinel,” “Clear Light,” “Sunjammer,” and “Altered State” in movie form. (In fact, “Altered State” kinda makes we wish that Where the Wild Things Are had felt like that.) You can hear MP3 snippets at Amazon U.S. (Also available at Amazon Canada and Amazon U.K.)
Your turn…
