We’re going back to my childhood again that’s cool right?
Favourite Movie Soundtrack ?
The reason people go back to their childhood when the question asks for favourites because it’s impossible Y’all to choose just one.
This is the last favourite prompt, no more having to choose from a million favourites.
Timeless people. . . Timeless
I get to show case my Lion King love here but briefly. Before continuing on, I went to see the live-action film in July that no-one asked for but Disney does it anyway. I cried, sobbed like the first time purely from nostalgia. I like the additional scenes we wouldn’t have seen and new songs especially Spirit by Beyonce. The CGI was mad good.
But. . .
Original is going to win.
The original soundtrack came out in 1994 but I prefer the special edition that came out 2003 purely from the additional rendition songs By Elton John “I Just Cant Wait To Be King”, “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?. Adding the talent of music composer Hans Zimmer who has worked on (Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Prince Of Egypt) makes for an epic combo. My parents bought me this album in 2003 for Christmas before we had streaming services. . you know CD’s. Those were the golden days putting that disc in your player and dancing like a loser in your room, that was me. It was a surprise this special edition came out and I remember crying with joy.
The Lion King music itself coaxed me to loving African music in general, the soulful kind that give me goosebumps. Listening to that music more and more made me appreciate this film and album even more. A lot of African music I’ve listened to is about sex, drugs and having a crazy time. I’m glad this album introduced me to the different side of this culture. There’s one track on this album that makes me cry EVERYTIME, the “Remember Who You Are” scene. . Ugh I don’t have words to describe what it makes me feel. I just cry for no bloody reason, OKAY.
For me this is an album that will never not affect me and I still own it to this day. Probably be a permanent shelf relic in ten years now. lol
The favourite prompts have stopped now YAY. Two more days of this challenge and I’m feeling the lazy kicking in. Hope you all have enjoyed my rambles thus far to those new and old.
What’s an album that holds sentimental value for you? Any tracks that will make me cry for no reason?
Stay Tuned for Day 29 tomorrow!
