Ironically, I haven't stopped listening to the Last Samurai soundtrack for a week, and I consider it (even with Tom Cruise) easily one of my favorite movies without question.

Now, speaking of Queen... when I was in high school our ensemble group went to a nursing home, and Bohemian Rhapsody was in our set. So we got to the part where we sing, "sometimes I wish I'd never been born" and there's this short pause... when an old lady on the front row looks us straight in the eyes and says, "meeeeee toooooooo." That we finished the song is a testament to... something. Easily one of the funniest moments of my life.


Okay, you need to warn me when you're going to spring one of those moments on me. I had a mouthful of iced chai and nearly spewed it all over my precious (is that Gollum in the background???) Mac when I read that last paragraph!

Back to MY topic... :) Yeah, I have that same thing, where I'll listen to the same album, or mix for weeks on end and never grow tired of it. Music nourishes my soul. Since getting my iPod last year my Playlists have exploded. I'll get into a mood and just create a list for it. I generally create a new one every month; just altering it as the month goes along. But sometimes I'll listen to the same one over and over for several months.

Last night I put together a mix based on my morning epiphany that included that final conflict number, as well as songs that remind me of who I am in Jesus. I think this one will be one I listen to throughout the rest of the year because it's striking a chord deeper within me than I realized...

Last Samurai is one of my favorite movies too. Pretty much anything about Japan will capture my heart, really. I love that soundtrack too, though I haven't listened to it in months...

Queen: I LOVE Queen! But I can't imagine singing Bohemian Rhapsody as a choir -- at least not without seeing that scene from Wayne's World in my head!! That's hard enough to get past without an old lady adding to the mix. :)

It. Was. Brilliant.

That's all I have to say about it.


LOL! Which one? Last Samurai or your ensemble's rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody??

Definitely the 80s rock-medley. I mean, we usually did classical Latin-type songs. We were an Episcopal school, after all. And of course, we rocked the house. But every once in a while... magnifico!
