So, I thought I’d tell a bit about what I listen to–when I drive about or am cleaning the house.
(Yes, this professor needs music mostly all the time. Without music, I’m not in the right mood. And, yes, I do clean the house. To stop the beetle invasion, see.)
It might be surprising, but…
…I listen almost exclusively to movie soundtracks!
Of course, I do listen to rock, classical and all that jazz. But still. If I want to do some listening, it’s movie soundtracks.
So, my favorite three right now (it changes from time to time, see) are:
(#3) Jurassic World
Michael Giacchino did a SUPER awesome job complimenting John Williams‘ original themes. Seriously, if you haven’t listened to this soundtrack, you’re missing out, and I’m sure a dino will eat you any minute now.
(#2) The Last Samurai
I’ve actually been listening to this one a lot on the computer. This is what the professor is usually working to. Now you know. Epically masterful job by Mr. Hans Zimmer. I think I’m a samurai, the sudden.
(#1) John Carter
So, I think Giacchino is my favorite movie composer right night. This music is the absolute tops!! Plus, it’s my favorite movie. You know, I think I am John Carter. Forget what I said about being a samurai.
Also, I was given an umbrellas this week…
