For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to do something unique on this blog. I've desired to have a biweekly special post where I share with all of you something I'm very passionate about. Today marks the first day of said post. It's the start of something new, something I'm excited about. And I shan't keep you in suspense anymore!
Introducing . . .
Yep! In this special post, I will be sharing a piece of music that I love with you. Most of the music will probably be instrumental, but there will also be some lyrical stuff in the mix. I'm thinking there'll also be some kind of vote to determine the best song of each year--but that's a long time in coming.
You guys honestly don't know how eager I've been to commence this series of posts. It's actually one of the things I was looking forward to most on my blog. So without further adieu, here is the first track of many:
"Imagine the Fire" from The Dark Knight Rises
Composed by Hans Zimmer
Allow me to tell the story of how I started listening to soundtrack music. Tracey had bought the Narnia soundtracks before I ever got into that type of music, and I didn't really care a whole lot for it at the time. But one time after watching The Dark Knight Rises (my favorite movie in the trilogy), I noticed it mentioned the soundtrack on the back of the movie case. I figured that the score must be just as awesome as the movie. I wasn't wrong.
Once I bought the album, I listened to it many, many times. One of my favorite tracks is the song I'm sharing with you. Yes, it's long, but it's so epic. I just love everything about the track, and I especially love it when the chanting (which is part of Bane's theme) comes in. This music is the perfect final battle music as the Dark Knight trilogy reaches its conclusion.
If you've never tried soundtrack music, I highly recommend listening to this track. It's one of the pieces of music that got me permanently hooked on movie scores. And if you need inspiration for the big fight you're writing--or you just want to feel like you can take on the world--this song is perfect for you too.
So what do you think of Music Monday posts? Did you enjoy the track? Have you listened to this particular soundtrack before? I eagerly await all your thoughts in the comments!
