Music of the Week


Week 4 - It's a Bitter World, and I'd Rather Dream

Posted on April 9, 2012 at 9:20 PM

Hello everyone!

I've just come back from spring break, so sorry about the no-show of a post. So, let's get right to it, shall we?

Monday: Children of Africa: The Story of Us by Symphony of Science

Symphony of Science brings a unique viewpoint of the world to anyone who cares to listen.This song in particular has a brilliant melody and chord structure, as well as a general optimistic feel that wells up deep inside of you. It expresses powerful messages by scientists through music, and it's kind of hard to just listen.

Tuesday: How to Save a Life by Alex Goot

I recently discovered Alex Goot's amazing singing ability. His covers are superb, and this is one of my favorites. The chords in the background are especially moving. A beautiful cover of a beautiful song, originally by The Fray.

Wednesday: Introduce A Little Anarchy by Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard

From the movie The Dark Knight, two of my favorite composers team up to produce an utterly phenomenal track. Listen especially from 1:06-1:26. The dark energy in this song is overwhelmingly powerful. Take a listen. Feel empowered.

Thursday: Lonely Lullaby by Owl City

A beautiful, heartbreaking song by one of the most amazing heartfelt artists I've known to exist. Truly a brilliant masterpiece. The harmonies, the touching piano, the chords, the soothing voice...everything is perfect.

Friday: Love The Way You Lie Mashup by Sam Tsui

A wonderful mashup of pop songs by a wonderful artist. The energy is unmistakable. I can't put much else into listen to this mashup of  "Love The Way You Lie", "Dynamite", and "Teenage Dream" by the talented Sam Tsui.

Saturday: Explosive (Orion & Ed Leal Production) - Bond

A wonderful string quartet with a hip twist, Bond is a favorite of mine. Here is one of their songs that is quite brilliant. Let's see what you think.

(Note: no decent youtube video, so here's a link to *gasp* myspace)

Sunday: Star Force One Overture by Rich Douglas

A wonderful epic-feeling overture that was done for CMC, the Conceptual Music Competition by another one of my favorite composers, Rich Douglas. You may be hearing more from him on MOTW. So, without further ado, here's a direct link to the mp3 (no decent youtube video again).

Thanks, and have a brilliant music-filled week!
