Mark Knopfler’s sixth and seventh soundtracks, and the only two he wrote in the 1990s, had been finished again to back in 1997. As such, the soundtrack had to be spot on. It was. And the Academy Award for Greatest Soundtrack goes to….wait, the place’s the envelope?! And Christina Aguilera’s emotional tribute to the movie’s music at the American Music Awards this past weekend was one more reminder of the way the soundtrack is deeply interwoven into standard culture.
On this set, they give attention to a fearful foursome of Stephen King movies: two characteristic movies and two tv miniseries, each featuring very totally different but very potent scores. I’ve been working in sound for motion pictures and video games for a bazillion years.
However a better place to start out is with the movie, by which the tale of singing sibs and their remarkably musical governess in Nazi Austria found its voice in Julie Andrews. This gloriously OTT soundtrack from the equally vibrant movie is perfect for such necessities.
The soundtrack, produced by the legendary T-Bone Burnett, was an on the spot hit and the likes of Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch and Emmy Lou Harris all noticed an upturn in their careers. “Dorothy (Would You Like To Dance?)”, “Can You (Level Your Fingers and Do the Twist?)”, “Rock-a-Bye Your Bear” have been all re-recorded for this soundtrack as well as the film.
The music on the likes of A Fistful Of Dollars mirrored the brutal pictures onscreen, however it was his score for the ultimate movie in The Man With No Name trilogy, that really transcended its origins. It was number one, the biggest soundtrack for films of all time,” producer Narada Michael Walden, who labored with Houston on the Bodyguard album in addition to a few of her other greatest hits, said in a phone interview in November.
