Five on Friday - The Inception Version
This week I decided to return to one of my favorite composers that I've featured once before - Hans Zimmer. Hans is a fantastic musical score writer for many very popular Hollywood movies and one of his projects that I totally loved was the music for Inception. If you haven't seen Inception it's quite the ride from beginning to end and the music really completes it. As a matter of fact, Hans was up for an Academy Award for Best Soundtrack but once again got cheesed when the people who decide these things in LA gave the award to somebody else. Seriously? What are you people out there thinking? Hans Zimmer is brilliant and without his music movies like Sherlock Holmes, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Driving Miss Daisy, Backdraft, and The Lion King - just to name a few - would be nowhere near as good as they are. I just don't get those award shows sometimes!
Ah well, be that as it may, I'd like to share five pieces of music from Inception that I was actually able to find on Playlist.com and hope that maybe you'll like them as much as I do. If not, click on over to Trav's Thoughts and see if you can find five other bits of music that you might like better from the other folks that participate in Five on Friday but I tell ya, you don't know what you're missing with Hans Zimmer!
