Relaxing music....

TGIF!Although I wonder why I should be thankful when in actuality I have been on spring break?Anyway the great thing about being free is that I get to add even more music to my MP3 player.I have so much now that I have been making playlist after playlist to make things easier.
Anywayhow a few posts back I let you all know the hard stuff I listen to.Now here is some of the lastest stuff that I listen to when I want to relax or I am meditating over something.
1. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Soundtrack


This is a beautiful soundtrack that echoes the sadness of the movie.Very little percussion in this soundtrack but it is filled with Asian instrumentation, Romantic cello solos and a touching theme song.For me the outstanding track is the one at the end of the movie when the girl jumps off the mountain (farewell)

2.Hero



This was another great movie and so was the soundtrack that was the work of Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger) and it blends opera and movie score wonderfully.The ancient chinese instruments are a welcome treat to the ear from the usual western instruments we are used to.I am yet to settle on a favourite track as I got hold of it rather recently.

3.House of Flying Daggers



Unfortunately I am yet to watch this movie, netlfix have sent it to my apartment but I'm not there right now so I'll have to wing it for now.The score to this movie was composed by Shigeru Umebayashi.And I must say that so far I am enjoying it greatly.Stay tuned for a more detailed critique!
Honorable mention:- Braveheart soundtrack,Titanic movie score,Gladiator score,Romeo and Juliet score.
ps:You see I have such wide ranging taste in music!
pps:Hey babe!It was great talking to you!Even though you left me hanging, you'll hear my voice when you least expect it!
