Breadcrumbs dropped on music wanderings.

  1. Right Back Where We Started From Maxine Nightingale

    This is the other film-related song. I watched both of these on the same day, and both have been taking turns being stuck in my head.

    I like the thumpy organ, fits the film it comes from well (The ice hockey film Slap Shot).

    I like the sparkly ground in this clip.

  2. Sky High Jigsaw

    I’m posting a couple of songs from a couple of films I watched recently.

    Sky High is the main theme from The Man From Hong Kong, an Australian and Hong Kong co-production that is a pretty fun Golden Harvest James Bond thing set mostly in Sydney. The fight scenes are actually well shot, and it turns out co-ordinated by Sammo Hung!

    Here’s a nice little talk by the director Brian Trenchard-Smith, and should lead to some others if you follow the Youtube trail.

    This clip is how the song first appears in the film, and a tops credit sequence to boot.

  5. トキメキがいたくて Chieri Ito

    Another great Ito Chieri song I first heard on that Idol Bible Whatever album, this one also being a single from her album Chieri.

    Gives me Triffids vibes in that softer part, and some of the singing has a nice rhythm to it; kinda slurry.

  6. Merry Christmas Chieri Ito

    I’ve been fond of her ‘best of’-type collection—Idol Miracle Bible Series Ito Chieri—for a while. This song’s on there, as well as the album Hello. I think she only released a few before concentrating on acting, though there are a few later singles about too. I also love Christmas songs.

    Gah, and the disco-esque opening of this song sounds very similar to something very obvious I can’t recall right now Щ(゚Д゚щ)

  8. Don’t Touch This Yutaka Ozaki

    Quite the introduction. I was hoping he’s songs would get worse and tragicer, and here ya go.
