Song’s from the Movies

I love this song from the 1996 Disney film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Sung by Patrick Page and written by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, I think it’s a real powerhouse in Disney’s Catalogue.

Now for a second lets forget it’s Disney. If you’ve not heard this I truly recommend it cos when I called it a real powerhouse, I think it truly is. I’m no music critic so I can’t tell you what they may say but for me this is such a compelling, moving piece of music.

Check out the video here. Go on, give it a go… after you’ve read the lyrics.

HunchbackHellfireHellfire

Confiteor Deo Omnipotenti
Beatae Mariae semper Virgini

Beato Michaeli archangelo
Sanctis apostolis omnibus sanctis

Beata Maria
You know I am a righteous man
Of my virtue I am justly proud

(Et tibit Pater)

Beata Maria
You know I’m so much purer than
The common, vulgar, weak, licentious crowd

(Quia peccavi nimis)

Then tell me, Maria
Why I see her dancing there
Why her smold’ring eyes still scorch my soul

(Cogitatione)

I feel her, I see her
The sun caught in her raven hair
Is blazing in me out of all control

(Verbo et opere)

Like fire
Hellfire
This fire in my skin
This burning
Desire
Is turning me to sin

It’s not my fault
(Mea culpa)
I’m not to blame
It is the gypsy girl
The witch who sent this flame
(Mea maxima culpa)
It’s not my fault
(Mea culpa)
If in God’s plan
(Mea culpa)
He made the devil so much
Stronger than a man
(Mea maxima culpa)

Protect me, Maria
Don’t let this siren cast her spell
Don’t let her fire sear my flesh and bone
Destroy Esmeralda
And let her taste the fires of hell
Or else let her be mine and mine alone

Hellfire
Dark fire
Now gypsy, it’s your turn
Choose me or
Your pyre
Be mine or you will burn

God have mercy on her
(Kyrie Eleison)
God have mercy on me
(Kyrie Eleison)
But she will be mine
Or she will burn!

Song’s from the Movies

Lets get this Halloween scare-fest week underway with, what I think is, an appropriate salute to Halloween.

I confess, when I first saw this movie I did not like it. To much Halloween and not enough Christmas; too many songs, I don’t know I just couldn’t get my head around it.

Being a big Tim Burton fan though I had to give it another go so when it was released on disc I did just that. Now it’s my number one Halloween Movie and in my top five of Christmas movies. Yes Peeps I love it, love it, love it!

The movie’s soundtrack was released in 1993 on Walt Disney Records. When the movie was re-release in Disney Digital 3-D in 2006, a special edition of the soundtrack was also released and among those that featured on a bonus disc was none other than Marilyn Manson singing this song. Who’d have guest (titter).

Sing along if you can…

TNBCThis Is Halloween

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbours gonna die of fright
It’s our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under your stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don’t we love it now?
Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

‘Round that…

‘Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something’s waiting no to pounce, and how you’ll

Scream! This is Halloween
Red ‘n’ black, and slimy green

Aren’t you scared?

Well, that’s just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the “who” when you call, “Who’s there?”
I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere
Life’s no fun without a good scare

That’s our job, but we’re not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don’t we love it now?

Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise
Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everybody scream
Won’t ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man Jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)
La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)

Performed By: Marilyn Manson. Written By: Danny Elfman

Song’s from the Movies

Another 80’s beauty. Sorry Guys and Gals, it’s my era and genre. This ones from the movie The Lost Boys and covered by Echo and the Bunnymen. What I didn’t know until now was that it was originally done by the Doors, written by Jim Morrison and Robby Krieger, back in ’67’.

The songs older than me (just) !

If you’re feeling up to it I’ve stuck a YouTube link to the promo vid for the song at the bottom of the page but be careful, it’s a bit scary.

It’s a great film, a great song, check it out; you know you want to. By the way if anyone has seen the sequels let me know if their worth a watch.

People are Strange

People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down

When you’re strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange
When you’re strange
When you’re strange

People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down

When you’re strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange
When you’re strange
When you’re strange

Song’s from the Movies

I love this song and it’s true that I loved it before hearing it in this movie. It’s also true that because of this movie I love it even more. It fits so well with the movies theme and the movie, not only brilliant but now a classic.

Did I tell you I love this movie!!??

Anyhoo, why not go get yourself an earful of Creedance. You know you’ll want to after reading this. You might even watch the… Film.

Bad Moon Rising

I see the bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightning
I see bad times today

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers overflowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

All right

Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Don’t go around tonight
Well, it’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

 

“Bad Moon Rising” written by John Fogerty
Performed by Creedance Clearwater Revival

Song’s from the Movies

I love this song by the Flaming Lips. From the movie Batman Forever, oh come on it wasn’t that bad a film, it’s played at a point where Ed Nygma is plotting his dastardly deeds against Bruce Wayne. It’s probably better listened to than read but I wanted to post it anyway.

Actually why not head over to YouTube and have a listen after you’ve read the lyrics below. Enjoy !

BatmanForeverBadDaysBad Days

You’re sorta stuck where you are
But in your dreams you can buy expensive cars
Or live on Mars
And have it your way

And you hate your boss at your job
Well, in your dreams you can blow his head off
In your dreams
Show no mercy

And all your bad days will end
And all your bad days will end
You have to sleep late when you can
And all your bad days will end
