L’arena

Another Ennio Morricone song, this time from one of the many western soundtracks he wrote – Il Mercenario¬†(The Mercenary/A Professional Gun). I’ll leave you the movie scene, a traditional western duel in which this song fits perfectly!

Here you have a scene from Kill Bill Vol. 2 in which the song was also featured.

White Clouds

Nuvole Bianche Nuvens brancasToday “I bring you” an Italian pianist that I got to know through an Italian friend (to whom I thank). The song I’m going to post was the first I ever heard from Ludovico Einaudi. 3 years have passed and I have listened to most of Ludovico’s discography, but Nuovole Bianche (White Clouds) is still my favourite – if you listen carefully to it, you’ll surely understand why!

All that’s left is to draw your attention to the first comment in youtube ūüėČ

Here you have a beautiful live sung version.

Cinema Paradiso

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso Giuseppe Tornatore Ennio Morricone Love theme for NataToday I have another melody from Giuseppe Tornatore‘s Cinema Paradiso. It’s quite similar to the one Pedro posted a couple of months ago, but it’s nonetheless worth listening to. Good night!

Hot Shots!

Well, my friend Miguel seems to be on vacation, so the musical section has been stopped. I don’t intend to take his place, but I’ll make a post about a movie.

Hot Shots Charlie Sheen Valeria Golino Jon Cryer Lloyd BridgesI am ¬†quite fond of laughing, which means that I love comic movies ūüėõ among many that I like, there are two that stand out – Hot Shots and Hot Shots Part Deux. These two comedies are parody films¬†(like Scary Movie¬†and others) that satirize¬†Top Gun, Rambo, Rocky, as well as several others. It stars¬†Charlie Sheen back when he was more known for quality acting than for smoking crack cocaine (yeah, it was a while ago!), Valeria Golino¬†and Lloyd Bridges¬†(totally love his performance!).

I won’t tell you the story, not to avoid spoiling it, but because it is the least important. The important thing is that you laugh almost constantly for 1 hour and 24 minutes, with few breaks for little romances!

Now the songs – firstly, the epic horse scene with Bobby Darin‘s Dream Lover

If you liked it, you can listen to¬†Dion’s version, which is the version that I actually listen to.

And now The Platters with Only You

PS Рif you watch both movies you will recognize two characters from Two and a Half Men (besides Sheen).
