27th March – Thomas Newman – “Arose (Dan Ross Remix)” from American Beauty #thomasnewman #remix

Thomas Newman “Arose” is a spine chilling piece of music in it’s original form, but I like how Dan Ross has taken this somewhere else. He has still managed to keep with the original theme and not tried to just up-beat the score, like most of the remixes I hear on here.

The original track is taken from the film “American Beauty”, which is also a great.

March 4th – Thomas Newman needs an #oscar! what is wrong with your ears? :) #thomasnewman #oscars #oscars2014 #film

Published by under Blog,daily,Film Score,thomasnewman

I was meant to moan about this yesterday but i was too tired to even write anything. Ended up posting a picture instead and had an early night.


Thomas Newman has been nominated 12 times for an Oscar and has yet to win anything, despite making some of the most important film music. What is wrong with your ears?
Some of these films would never have been as well received, without his trademark sounds. Shawshank Redemption without the “Brooks was here” piece for example. That scene would have not been so memorable without his music.

It still shocks me to see another nomination without a win! sort it out Hollywood!

1995 Little Women

January 12th – The Help film #thomasnewman #score

Published by under Blog,daily,Music,score,thomasnewman

I never watch a trailer for a film before watching any film. Why? I just think they can actually give too much away but also, in the case of The Help, they can paint the wrong expectation of a film.

The Help is amusing at times but the messages it gives is far from amusing. Add the ever deep melancholic sounds of Thomas Newman and we have the picture painted. Was it really like this? I am ashamed to be human, if this is what our behaviour was or is all about.

Go watch the film and instead of the amusing trailer, please take a listen to the wonderful Thomas Newman instead…
