Tuesday Tunes: Johan Soderqvist’s Soundtrack for Let the Right One In

Although there are no lyrics, the music still tells a story of tragic Beauty. Johan Soderqvist composed the soundtrack for the Swedish vampire/horror/love story film called Let the Right One In.

The music matches perfectly with this strange, artistic movie. My favorite part starts around 2:30 with the guitar and harp section. This simple, haunting melody is simultaneously peaceful and soothing to the soul.

Hope you enjoy this instrumental song today!

Tuesday Tunes: Dresses “Blew My Mind”

image from here

lyrics:

You blew my mind when we were swinging in a dream
You said, “watch me I’ll swing so high I’ll be stuck up in the trees”
And so ya did
I forgot it was a dream and so ya did

I left you in my mind, and wandered to the creek
Where I startled little children, and the children laughed at me
So I dipped
I went on with the day I shoulda skipped

I try to sleep but then I wake up
When you’re gone, I really hate my dreams
All along, I try to live but then I think too much
Because most of the time all the thoughts in my mind get to me

I started dozing off as I walked down a city street
Oh, nobody was looking so I laid down at their feet and you were gone
All the people carried on

I try to sleep but then I wake up
When you’re gone, I really hate my dreams
All along, I try to live but then I think too much
Because most of the time all the thoughts in my mind get to me

I try to sleep but then you wake me up
When you’re gone, I really hate my dreams
All along, I try to run but then I can’t keep up
Because most of the time all the thoughts in my mind get to me
Because most of the time all the thoughts in my mind get to me

Tuesday Tunes: Jeff Buckley, “Hallelujah”

Song: “Hallelujah”

Singer: Jeff Buckley


lyrics:

Well I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing HallelujahHallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…

Baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor (you know)
I used to live alone before I knew you
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…

there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do you?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah…
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Tunes on Tuesday

I want to start this new post each Tuesday where I talk about music I am listening to! 🙂

I fell in love with this song called “Skeleton Boy” by the band, Friendly Fires. I heard it before watching a film at an international cinema film viewing last year, and I still listen to it! It has such a great beat. And come on. Who wouldn’t want to dance to this? 😀
