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.
