now playing:tuesday

 i got some good feedback on last weeks edition of Now Playing:Tuesday
so im going to give you some more good stuff to look up and enjoy.

i am a huge soundtrack lover...sometimes i pay more attention to the music in whatever movie we've gone to see than the actual movie itself.  its usually one of the first critiques ill give about a movie..."the music was great...plot sucked" for example.

so first up...
1. TRON: The Legacy Soundtrack. The entire soundtrack was done by Daft Punk...and let me just tell you now ITS AWESOME! we were downloading the soundtrack before we even got to the car....thats how good it was. They even had a cameo in the movie!

2. The Gladiator Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard.  i know what you thinking....the Gladiator...really? Yes! A friend recently gave me this soundtrack and ive been listening to it over and over again.  Its got a middle eastern/indian sound to it that i loooove.  plus, Hans Zimmer is very well known for soundtracks and is completely brilliant

3. The Swell Season: Strict Joy.  If you have ever seen the movie Once this is them.  The brilliant work of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglova.  This album came out in 2009 but i just recently got it and love it! The soundtrack for the movie Once is also amazing.  They have a very acoustic-y folk sound.  Its very calm and chill music with alot of emotion and soul put into it. Who doesnt like an Irishman with a great voice?

Thats all for today. 
As always let me know what you think should you try any of music i listed.  If you have some music you think i should try or feature on now playing:tuesdays please send it my way!!
