amazing soundtracks

Published April 12, 2012 by laurrx

i’m a huge fan of movies, and when i’m rummaging through my collection of DVDs looking for one to watch i’ll start singing a song from it, or say to myself “what a freaking amazing soundtrack!”. and whenever i’m shuffling through my ipod every second or third song is from a movie or a TV show.

here are my top 10 favourite soundtracks (not in order)

10 things i hate about you
this CD was the soundtrack to my Florida holiday 2006 or something. every song was so spot on for the moment, and every song is amazing! my favourite song was probably Letters to Cleo – Cruel To Be Kind, and it’s so cute ’cause Patrick gets them to sing it for Kat, for it all to be ruined. Best scene of the whole movie, i think! i love Semisonic – FNT when they’re paintballing, cos they kiss at the end of that scene and it fits in far too well!!
the soundtrack list is right here

project X
just seen this movie quite recently and every song that came on, my friend and me would whisper to each other “what a tune!!!” or “love this song”. it’s such an immense soundtrack, i downloaded it the day after i went to see it. my favourite is kid cudi – pursuit of happiness steve aoki remix. it’s the one that was played in the advert that was constantly played on E4 adverts that were promoting the movie, and i just wanted the song to keep playing!
here’s a link to the list here

tangled
forgot how good the songs were in this until i watched it just yesterday, i was prancing about the house singing along to all the songs. and i have a clear favourite and it’s when will my heart begin! i love Mandy Moore’s voice so much, and this song is really funny, when shes hanging around the house doing all this stuff and painting and then talking about the chinese lanterns!!! i love it, i love it, i love it!

enchanted
i also watched this yesterday and sang the songs word for word. when i got out of hospital five years ago, this had been delivered to the house (along with Pump it up the exercise DVD which gathers dust in my cupboard now…). i watched it loads and the songs are so funny. i love the way enchanted really takes the mickey out of all disney movies. favourite – that’s how you know, when they’re all dancing about the park. it’s absolutely hysterical. there’s really only like 3 or 4 songs that are actually sung, but the music is even good!!

mary  poppins
i know i’m such a Disney freak, but after this there’s no more! for a couple of weeks when i was a kid i spent a few weeks in hospital and every day i watched mary poppins, whenever i sit and watch it i’ll talk along with the characters like a proper 5 year old. supercaligragilisticexpialidocious is my ultimate favourite disney song never mind my favourite mary poppins song! also i love jolly holiday with mary and i love to laugh! amazing, and it really all takes me back to when i was younger!

wizard of oz
this movie is one of my total cheer up films, but i always fast forward to when it goes to colour – i hate non colour movies.  i love the scarecrow, tinman and lion’s song “if i only had a brain/heart/the nerve”. i absolutely adore the lion, and the way he says “noive”. and then also “over the rainbow”, what an amazing song!

(500) days of summer
as much as this movie irritated me ’cause they never get together (’cause summer was a bitch), the songs in it were really good. i loved the genre of the soundtrack, the songs were all so relaxing, and really nice. they went with the movie and what was really happening in the movie. i feel like the songs are so ironic, they’re all so cheery and happy sounding, that it isn’t really clear that they won’t be together forever.
get them here

a walk to remember
listening to this soundtrack never fails to bring  tear to my eye. they just remind me of one of the saddest movies i’ve ever watched. and like i said before i love mandy moore and i love that she sings in it, the song is amazing. my favourite song in this is mandy moore and jonathon foreman – someday we’ll know. its such a fab song, and it’s played when Landon is doing amazing things for Jamie and it’s such an amazing music scene!

Favourites.

Published January 11, 2012 by laurrx

I can’t do monthly favourites at all, i don’t remember what i use most. so maybe recent favourites will do?

i love Soap and Glory products. I genuinely don’t know where else to get them apart from Boots. This is especially amazing. I plan on blogging about all of my favourite S&G products, because it is so good! All the products smell exactly the same, but that’s not a bad thing. The smell is so nice. This is one of my favourites because it worked really well on my hair. When i got more blond in my hair i found it to be really dry, and i have only used this about 4 times and i find my hair to be less dry, both looking and feeling. I could honestly rant and rave about this all day and i’m trying not to go on to other S&G products but i’m excited about writing that blog. I got the most amazing Soap & Glory vanity case for my christmas, i absolutely love it!

Sephora Instant Refreshing Toner. I bought this when i was in Gran Canaria in September, and i actually forgot all about it until quite recently. It’s really good, and it really does break my heart that we dont have a sephora here. Even if they had one in London i’m sure i’d have day trips every now and then to go buy Sephora things. They are so inexpensive and work really well. I recommend any Sephora product, actually. Everything from there that i have is really good, and works. I use this after i’ve just cleaned my face with a facewipe, and it really does refresh the skin. I’ll also use it when i get up in the morning and it really wakes me up, and i think – i don’t know if this is just my head – it really does make me seem more awake, and feel more awake.

This is my ultimate recent favourite. Urban Decay Naked Palette. Linda gave me this for my Christmas, i have already wrote about it in a blog, but it was hardly a ‘review’ or anything like that. My favourite colour HAS to be half baked…or sin…or maybe toasted. Or all together! i really always use at least 3 colours on my eyes, and have became shocked when people tell me they use ONE. its mad! i also really love the brush that comes with it. i got a Lancome Absolut Voyage make up palette and i was so disappointed in the brushes, so when i read about this one and how it came with a brush i was fully expecting a crappy little floppy, soft brush. but i am really impressed with how good it is!

shes not a favourite but this is my mum. it was her birthday today so she gets a picture. me and Linda got her a gorgeous pair of Swarovski earrings (which she was already given then lost one when she fell on holiday) which she loved and my dad is taking her to Lanzarote for a week at the end of the month. We went to Frankie and Benny’s for dinner, it was really nice. i love that restaurant!

hope the January Blues arent setting in with anyone quite yet. I’m sure “Blue Monday” is the 16th and i am dreading it as always!

Keep happy thoughts!
