#soundtracksunday . The Batman Forever Soundtrack , originally released May 23, 1995. This is the actual cassette that I bought around when the movie came out in the United States. .
I was really hyped up about this movie back then. I remember watching the first Batman movie with Michael Keaton in the Philippines and Batman Returns right around when my family first moved to the States. At this point, my friends and I were really into Jim Carrey and was very excited about him playing the Riddler. .
It was around this time also that I started tinkering on the guitar, so music was my main obsession (still is). I absorbed as much music as I could and watched as many music videos on MTV and Vh1 back when they actually played music. I loved the videos for Seal's "Kiss From A Rose" and U2's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me."
I love the pics of the movie characters in the J-fold. They look colorful and vibrant. Now, I admit that I tore out the Nicole Kidman one and carried it around with me back then, telling my friends that she was my girlfriend; she just didn't know it yet..haha. Hey. I was hitting puberty at that time! Give me a break! Anyway, I guess I never returned that pic of Nicole Kidman back in the J-fold. Oh, well. #soundtrack#batman#batmanforever#cassette#musiccollector#music#musicislife#istillrockcdsandcassettes#dc#dccomics#soundtrack

Not sure there is any soundtrack more 90s than this. While this record is great, I’m not sure I’ve ever even seen the movie start to finish 🤷🏻♂️
Happy #soundtracksunday everybody. Week 3 of our Rocky soundtrack Sunday. Music done by none other than Bill Conti. Rocky III is a pretty sad one in the series. Rocky is rich and famous beyond his wildest dreams, which has made him lazy and overconfident. In a double whammy, he loses his trainer and father figure Mickey and then has his title stolen by the arrogant, menacing challenger Clubber Lang . Turning to his former adversary, Apollo Creed for help, Rocky struggles to get his old fire back.🥊
Regina Belle was on stage to present Dottie Peoples with a special award at Essence Festival. After receiving her award, Dottie People performed some of her favorite church songs. #SoundtrackSunday#EssenceFest @essence @essencefest @iamreginabelle @dottiepeoplesfans
Film Score Sunday
This week's Film Score Sunday falls on a sad day for our family. My wife Erin lost her dad Sandy to cancer eight years ago today. His favourite film was Sergio Leone's The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, so here's Ennio Morricone's famous score.
The main theme has been parodied millions of times, but in the context of the film it really means business, just like the characters in the film. At times tense, at times sweet and soothing, it's perfect for a Sunday morning. This badass cue is called "The Ecstasy of Gold".
Stephen King said this about The Good, The Bad & The Ugly in the forward to his Dark Tower books:
"On a movie screen, projected through the correct Panavision lenses, TG, TB & TU is an epic to rival Ben-Hur. Clint Eastwood appears roughly eighteen feet tall, with each wiry jut of stubble on his cheeks looking roughly the size of a young redwood tree. The grooves bracketing Lee Van Cleef's mouth are as deep as canyons. The desert settings appear to stretch at least out as far as the orbit of the planet Neptune. And the barrel of each gun looks to be roughly as large as the Holland Tunnel."
Shortly after Sandy died, we went to a 35mm screening of the film at a local rep theatre, and it was just about the greatest thing I'd ever seen. We like to think that it was the same print that Sandy watched when it came out in 1966. He's still missed. He was a good man, father, husband & friend. He was a writer. His daughter is carrying that torch. And he was a barbequing wizard. What I wouldn't give for one more backyard barbeque with him.
