Songs from Liquid Days is a collection of songs composed by composer Philip Glass. Lyrical contributors on this album are Paul Simon, Suzanne Vega, David Byrne and Laurie Anderson. Originally released in 1986, the album is now available on black vinyl.
Nuovo Cinema Paradiso was a critical and box-office success and is regarded by many as a classic. It is particularly renowned for the 'kissing scenes' montage at the film's end. Ennio Morricone (1928-2020) composed and arranged the score of the movie.
The multi-talented Johnny “Guitar” Watson was known for his guitar skills and was one of the hottest blues artists during the 1950s. His 1977 funk album A Real Mother For Ya produced the same titled international hit song and features “Nothing Left To Be Desired” and “Lover Jones”.
Outside Your Room is the fourth EP by English shoegazing band Slowdive, released in 1993. The title is taken from the lyrics of the song “Alison”, which reached No. 69 in the UK Singles Chart. Side A also features the lazy lurcher “So Tired”. The flip side features the hypnotic, smouldering near-instrumental dub of “Souvlaki Space Station” and closes with “Moussaka Chaos”.
The seventh entry into the internationally successful Harry Potter movie series is also one of the series' darkest. Composer Alexander Desplat infuses the young wizard's world with the appropriate amount of gravitas. Desplat's score is both subtle and huge, lending quiet emotional depth, playful wickedness, and tense, robust action with masterful precision.
Songs from Liquid Days is a collection of songs composed by composer Philip Glass with lyrics by Paul Simon, Suzanne Vega, David Byrne and Laurie Anderson. Glass began the project scoring lyrics by Byrne and then thought to collaborate with additional songwriters.
