Next was Eddie Perfect, who received quite a lot of applause upon entering the stage. He was young, charming and had a very nice rich quality to his voice, as well as a great range. But what specifically reminded me very much of a young Michael Buble was his style. “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories” are my favorite out of all the song at that night. Jazz music sound soft and mellow as playing on however like all music, it tells a story and here are the stories of “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories”.
This style was identified by its wide melodic leaps and its mild dissonance, which would have made it difficult to sing along with. However, it became distinctly American and was often used patriotically. This style theme is greatly evident in the score of The Best Years of Our Lives, written by Hugo Friedhofer, which is about veterans returning home from the war. Since the movie is about veterans, American Nationalism creates a strong patriotic mood in the scenes in which it is used. Another important film concerning the use of popular music is Laura, which was released in 1944.
But what does Roger Ebert say about Casablanca? On his webpage he says: “If we identify strongly with the characters in some movies, then it is no mystery that ‘Casablanca’ is one of the most popular films ever made. It is about a man and a woman who are in love, and who sacrifice love for a higher purpose.” He goes on to say that
Milton Berle invented what people call vaudeo, a new trend/vaudeville style. “The first major indication of vaude’s return is seen in the Texaco Star Theater’s premiere on NBC.” (p. 114) Milton brought vaudeville entertainment back and people loved this because it was comforting and made them feel good. Edward R. Murrow was an American broadcast journalist. He is responsible for the rise of CBS television news and documentary programming. Before TV he was famous for his radio reporting during WWII.
The stringed instruments were the accompaniment; therefor, they began with harmonics, chromatics, and tremolo for various measures rather than having a moving part. The melody was given to the flutes and soloist, Sami Junnonen, who was also very talented. The song was about 22 minutes long and he had the whole piece memorized. It sounded very sad, but soothing simultaneously. There were visuals around the theater, which made it easier to understand and visualize what Lopez was trying to describe when writing the song.
Somewhere over the rainbow has always been one of my favorite songs.Infact I have used this assignment as an excuse to watch the movie. Growing up watching the Wizard of Oz over and over again, I think it is safe to say it would not have been nearly as popular without Judy Garland. I would like to share my thoughts, feelings, and impressions on this version of the song. This song made the movie! There is a reason that it has been re-sung so many times.
The director of Blood Diamond directed this film also. James Newton Howard scored Blood Diamond as well. The director, Edward Zwick, asked James Newton Howard asked him to score Defiance, because he liked how well James Newton Howard scored Blood Diamond. I like this movie score a lot because Defiance is my favorite movie of all time. James Newton Howard made and absolute amazing score for this movie.
My favorite characters were the dynamic duo, Cogsworth and Lumiere. Whenever either one of them or both of them waltzed onto the stage, I knew there would be laughter rippling through the audience. Another hilarious character was Lefou. The actor played a convincing role as Gaston’s henchman and doesn’t mind getting beat up a couple of times. The voices of the main characters, Belle and the Beast were amazing!
