Covering IT’s Soundtrack

Andy Muschietti did do justice to the work of Stephen King and Tommy Lee Wallace by recreating the story of Pennywise. This goes hand in hand with the musical soundtrack originally by Richard Bellis. Benjamin Wallfisch was responsible for the original motion picture soundtrack of both chapter 1 and chapter 2 of the It remakes. Though it’s not the only horror movie score he’s brought to life. Other horror films that include his compositions include Shrooms (2007), Red Riding Hood (2011), Dracula (2013), Lights Out (2016), A Cure for Wellness (2016),  Annabelle: Creation (2017), The Darkest Minds (2018)  and Hellboy (2019).  Continue reading Covering IT’s Soundtrack

Add in background music, back up vocalists, and instrumental, and it's sometimes hard to hear the lyrics for what they truly are. This leads to misheard lyrics that are often hilarious. 

What did you say?; Misheard Lyrics

This is actually a fairly common occurrence. There’s a phenomenon called mondegreens, It means, “a word or phrase resulting from a mishearing of another word or phrase, especially in a song or poem”.

The phrase came from an American writer by the name of Slyvia Wright, and written about San Francisco Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll. Mondegreen is inspired by a misheard line in a poem. She misheard “he laid him on the green” as “Lady Mondegreen” from the Scottish ballad “The Bonny Earl o Moray”. Continue reading What did you say?; Misheard Lyrics

Dennis James; Organist and Historial Preservationist

Shifting to the pipe organ at the age of 12 has since been a consistent part of his life. This change from accordion to the organ was overall a benefit to both James’s career and his audience. Looking back, he admits that he probably wouldn’t have stayed with music and instead pursued another interest namely oil painting. Instead of Dennis James the oil painter, he is currently known internationally as a professional organist and a historic preservationist.

Disney and Dreams; Sleeping Beauty Cover Songs

Second only to Dumbo (who doesn’t speak at all), Aurora had the least lines of any Disney Movie lead. The princess spoke less than 20 lines in the whole film. As the voice of Princess Aurora, Mary Costa became entwined with the character. Regardless of the lack of lines, when the audience does hear her voice especially for the songs she sings, it’s majestic. Trying to decide which specific song to highlight is almost as difficult as the fairy godmother’s trying to decide whether Aurora’s dress should be pink or blue. The scenes where the two fairies couldn’t agree on whether the dress should be pink or blue is inspired by the filmmaker’s own indecision on the dress’s colour. The iconic song of Sleeping Beauty is “Once Upon a Dream” is the focus of our article. Enjoy these amazing covers! Continue reading Disney and Dreams; Sleeping Beauty Cover Songs

Finding Tunes from ‘Finding Nemo’ Cover Songs

Most of the soundtrack is simply musical scores not sung music. The score of the film is beautiful and received a nomination for the 76th Academy Awards for Best Original Score losing against  Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I can’t argue with that choice as it’s a film series I eventually will be covering (Yes, pun intended).

In fact, there are only three lyrical songs in the whole film; Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by Darla played by LuLu Ebeling, “Just Keep Swimming” by Dory played by Ellen DeGeneres, and finally “Beyond the Sea” performed by Robbie Williams.  Continue reading Finding Tunes from ‘Finding Nemo’ Cover Songs

The Hunchback of Notre Dame; HellFire Cover Songs

This movie and it’s resulting music is rather dark with some seriously real undertones. Thus this article will focus on one of the darker songs. “The song “Hellfire” is considered one of the darkest songs written for a Disney film, and was nearly cut from the film,” quotes the trivia section on IMDB.  Continue reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame; HellFire Cover Songs

Covering the Amazing Mary Poppins

This movie is one of the most whimsical films that Disney has done (in my opinion). It contrasts dreary England with the imaginative magic of a whole new world. That contrast makes the whimsy that Mary Poppins brings forth to the children and the audience for that matter, all the more sensational. The highlighted song for this article from the gorgeous 1964 film is, of course, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Check the highlighted covers below! Continue reading Covering the Amazing Mary Poppins
