The soundtrack!  Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

Opening title song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozitqabi6UM  Technologic by Daft Punk

Why?  This song briefly paints a picture of how humans have become regulated.  How technological everything is is this future dystopia.

In the scene where they are touring the embryo part of the hatcheries:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOvgR_mWGco  Bring Me to Life by Evanescence

Why? All of these embryos are lives.  Canned, frozen, jarred, with the lid screwed on tight.  Some are purposely disabled.  Some are mentally boosted.  Bringing them to life…  Also, this doubles as society crying out.

When they are seeing the conditioning of the baby Deltas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjX2KYuAJcA  Life Is Beautiful by Sixx A.M.

Why?  A pretty beginning and theme “Life is beautiful!” But underneath, it’s talking about how corrupt this is.  Same principle applying here?  I think so.

When they are walking through the place outside when the children play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyhrYis509A  Barbie Girl by Aqua

Why?  It’s modernizing and sexualizing youth.  Toddlers singing/hearing this?  Creepy!  The song applies.  “I’m a barbie girl, in my barbie world.  You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere.”

When Fanny is telling Lenina she should be more promiscuous:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzumsXtyCW4  Good Time by Owl City

Why?  “We must make the effort [not to be faithful].” As Fanny says, and as the song goes,  “It’s always a good time!”  So the song should be an accurate representation of what Lenina should be doing, rather than being faithful.

 

 

Be creepy.

Stay strong.

What’s your theme song?  :P

Comment?

This was mine:

“Want You Back” by Cher Llyod

“You’re tough and edgy — but most of all, bold. You’re not afraid to speak your mind, or talk to a guy first. If you want something (like your ex back), you’ll stop at nothing to make sure you get it!”

 

Don’t forget to be awesome!  :P

One Day Away

Song I’ve been writing for about a week and a half…  Just words, so far.  Spaces for instrumental, but no music yet.

:)  Have fun reading! Oh, and feel free to suggest music or words, if you like.

Lyrics are sort of in a sing-song rap, with the exception of the chorus, which is only sung.

Chorus in bold.

Regular lyrics italicized.

~

WOAH…/

About 15 seconds of instrumental

Maybe it’s best/

What have I expressed?/

A distress/

No finesse/

Just a song…/

Come ON.  What’cha waitin’ on?/

Respond!!/

Can’t believe I’m waiting like this/

Can’t believe that I gave a kiss/

Living with myself/

In and of itself/

Left me waiting for my own self-help/

HELP!/

Feelin’ crazy (all the time)/

Bein’ lazy (got no rhyme)/

A bit of guitar playing in the background… Maybe 6 seconds?

In and out of sanity/

All I think is profanity/

What I’m feeling might be wrong/

Can’t stop it/ Yeah, Been like this all ‘long/

Don’t need no R&R/

I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T by far/

But don’t forget the way this lays/

Always  One. Day. Away./

Wonder who we are/

In this mixed up world\

Wonder where we are/

In this cold lifeless road\

In and out of sanity/

All I think is profanity/

What I’m feeling might be wrong/

Can’t stop it/ I’ve Been like this all ‘long/

Don’t need no R&R/

I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T by far/

But I won’t forget the way this lays/

Always  One. Day. Away./

I wish I wish upon that star/

For you to talk to me about this/

Haven’t seen you since forever./

Sometimes feeling listless./

In this whimsical endeavor./

If I saw ya more/

(meet me by those nooks!)/

If you came to see me like you swore/

(the nooks with the books!)/

I could tell you more/

Like how I know you’re an easy one to fall for /

But it doesn’t even matter/

I’ll give you my heart, right up; on a silver platter/

Yeah, a bit gory/

Like my friend Tori?/

Ok, no silver platter.  How about a silver lining?/

No whining/

Anyway/

I hope I’m not too forward for your tastes/

Sorry if that’s so,/

But I’m never changing who I am (my soul)/

You’ve gotta stick to yourself if you wanna be great/

Never change… for anyone… but… YOU./

2 Minutes  16 Seconds  Long.

A bit shorter that usual, but there’s no instruments yet!  So… Yeah.

What did you think? :)

Vivaldi

Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice on March 4th, 1678.  He began work with the Ospedale della Pietà right after his ordination in 1703; he taught violin there.  During this period he wrote many five-finger-exercise pieces.  “Spring” (the first part of Four Seasons) was a firm favorite of French King Louis XV, who would order it to be performed at the most unexpected moments.   Vivaldi received various commissions for further compositions from the court of Versailles.  Vivaldi died on July 28th, 1741 of “internal fire” (probably the asthmatic bronchitis from which he suffered all his life).  In his life, he composed many beautiful pieces such as  Opus 3 and Four Seasons.

Specific Movements start at…

  • Spring.  0:00
  • Summer. 10:31
  • Fall. 20:59
  • Winter. 32:48

Vivaldi composed Four Seasons in 1723.   He wrote it to show the seasons musically.  In Spring the flutes are similar to little birds, twittering in the trees.  Autumn starts with strings simulating falling leaves.   Around 21:45 there are yet more violins that take a beautiful turn as it sounds like the first frost settling on fallen leaves and grass.  Winter has violins, violas, and cellos that sound like snow.  Around 36:45 in Winter, there is a viola that sounds like an eagle soaring high above or a wolf howling far away.

I picked this piece because I liked the way Vivaldi put together the instruments to sound like animals and events. When I listen to it I can hear the hard work that went into it.  It feels like a walk outside.  My favorite movement is Summer because it has deep and rich notes and is not annoying as Spring is.

The Historyteachers!!

OMG.  This is so cool. :) You guys will love this!

Without further ado, The Historyteachers!!

This one is my favorite, particularly because I’m obsessed with the French Revolution. And because it’s good music.

Did you know Marie-Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake”? It was published in a writing by Jean-Jacques Rousseau when she was nine years old!
