I think I am nuts since I am joining this challenge the day before the Thursday Movie Picks, but I am enjoying the weekly themes created by Jingle, Jangle, Jungle. If you wish to join, check out the challenge here. Basically, you follow the theme as long as it is part of the song title, mentioned in the song or the the Artists. I do not pretend to know music very well at all but this theme, I think I can do...maybe...we shall see. I still think I am nuts. Anyways, the 3 themes this week are
Feb 10 - Week 6
An Acoustic Song
A Song from a Movie
A Song about Cheating
1. THE THIRD MAN THEME-1948 BY ANTON KARAS
I love the zither which looks like a complicated instrument. When Carol Reed(it's a guy not a gal), the director for The Third Man, went to Vienna to scout out the locations he found this man in a Viennese cafe just outside of Vienna. He hired Mr. Karas on the spot and told him to create a song for his upcoming film and this was it. It became a huge hit!
2. LARA'S THEME FROM DR. ZHIVAGO-1965 BY MAURICE JARRE
It's my mom's birthday today and she would have been 93 years old. As a tribute to her I chose her favourite film with a song she loved and interpreted by the great Andre Rieu whom she called her boyfriend..hahahaa.
3. MAMMA MIA-1976 BY ABBA.
This song is about an unhealthy relationship that must come to an end since "I've been cheated by you since I don't know when". I love ABBA so expect more.
I didn't know Mamma Mia was about cheating.ReplyDelete
Interesting challenge! Great story about the Viennese musician. I have a friend who also loves Andre Rieu. Your mom had good taste. Like Alex, I didn't know Mamma Mia was about cheating either, but I'm not exactly a fan. 🙃ReplyDelete
Very good! You've done this before! 😀ReplyDelete
I love your selections. My mother also really loved Lara's Theme from Dr Zhivago. That produced some fond memories for me. Thank you! and thanks for joining in!ReplyDelete
I love ABBA too, but the words of many of their songs are barf-inducing, right? Come on girlfriend, dump the cheater once and for all. Have some self respect!ReplyDelete
Cheers to your Mama! I think my mom wouldn't have minded Tom Jones for her boyfriend. :-)ReplyDelete
A glutton for punishment is the phrase that comes to mind. I love ABBA too, but John doesn’t so it’s a guilty pleasure.ReplyDelete
My friend dragged her husband to see Mamma Mia. He said it was cause for divorce. I was going to testify on his behalf if necessary, lol.ReplyDelete
Great picks for this new challenge. Now Mama Mia is in my head, but it is a good song for that!ReplyDelete
I loved Mama Mia:)ReplyDelete
Enjoy the challenge:)
I didn't know Mama Mia was about cheating. I guess I know the words to the chorus and that's it.ReplyDelete
I am glad everyone liked my picks but were surprised about mamma Mia. There are many people who do go back to their cheating, no good spouse which is sad but how many people do you know who would love to shake their friend/sibling to have them open their eyes? I love that some people love ABBA and others really dislike them...sorry but expect more:)ReplyDelete
I am so happy today and appreciate the genuine work done by the love spell caster and give me the right direction so today I got my wish fulfilled under the guidance of a love caster Dr Jumba . Love is an important part of our relationship. I can understand this when my boyfriend has cheated on me and engaged with other girl’s affairs. At that time I was Broken and realized the importance of love in my life or relationship. My boyfriend did not give me importance and he always embarrasses me in front of his friends. Then I searched on the Internet and I found a spell caster who i trusted and he cheated me “one day a friend of mine told me about a real spell caster who helped her with a love spell so I got the contact number of Dr Jumba spell caster ” then I dropped a message on WhatsApp and explained all my problems to him . So he showed me previous work done by himself and guided me on how the work will be done. Then I start work and get my boyfriend back within 24 hours as Dr Jumba promised me in a positive way. I want to use this time to show appreciation. That's why I am so happy and thankful to Dr Jumba. he can also help you below are his contact information email : firstname.lastname@example.org text or call him +19085174108 .ReplyDelete
