Five on Friday - More Movie Music

It appears that I am running a bit late for my Five on Friday post but - as is the story of my life lately - there's lots to do and seemingly little time to do it!  Well, okay truth be told, today's excuse is that I'm switching over to Direct TV later on today and while waiting for the technician to come over to do the installation I figured I had best watch the four TV episodes I had recorded on my Comcast DVR before it got disconnected. Probably a lousy excuse but I didn't want to miss the two episodes of Burn Notice, one of The Closer, and other one of Flashpoint that I had saved!  I really don't watch much TV but those three are my favorites when Doctor Who is no longer in season.

Anyhow, all excuses aside, this week I decided to grab some of my favorite movie music along with one song from a video game that I think is pretty cool, too.  Amanda has introduced me to a lot of music used on video games that is really, really good so never discount them as an awesome source of music!  For this week I grabbed the two pieces of music from Inception that I could find on - one by my favorite composer Hans Zimmer and the other by Zack Hemsey; there's a piece from Shutter Island by Max Richter; Mombasa Suite 6:41 is from Halo 2 (a game I will never ever play but which has great music); and from Watchmen a piece by Vitaliy Zavadskyy.

I hope you enjoy this week's choices and if you get a chance, please stop by Trav's Thoughts and check out the other participants in his Five on Friday meme. Heck, you might even want to join in one of these days!


  1. I can't get the player to play. When I click on the play button it takes me to a new window with the 5 on Friday logo. Weird.

    Have a terrific day and weekend. Off to the boat for us. Big hug. :)

  2. Burn Notice and The Closer. Great choices even if off topic. Have you watched Memphis Beat yet? Just love it, but then it does end each episode with an Elvis song.

    Really like Mombasa Suite. Have the same problem in our household since Chris and David both love Anime. Never watch it, but some of the music is wonderful.

  3. That's really odd, Sandee. Hope no one else has that problem!

    Jamie - haven't watched it though I have seen the commercials for it. I'm afraid to get sucked into another cop show, though it does bring out my inner police dispatcher!

  4. It doesn't play for me either. It might be licencing restrictions.

  5. I love The Closer - Kyra is a hoot and I'm in love with Provenza and Sgt. Gabriel - how's that for diverse taste!!

    I also like Flashpoint - the tall bald officer is very very sexy

    oh wait - were we talking about music?

  6. I've never heard of any of these and unfortunately I can't play them 'due to licensing restrictions in your country' :(

  7. They played perfectly for me, Linda - really liked the Vitaliy Zavadskyy one and the Max Richter one. Might have to add them to my moody writing playlist!

  8. I couldn't get the player to just showed me the badge.

  9. better to be without TV. you will find that you don't miss it and your time will be filled with something more.


Thanks for visiting!
