LOST – The Music Behind The Mystery

So yeah, I’m a huge Lost fan.

HUGE!

OMFG!!! LOST IS LIKE, THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF AMAZING THINGSS!!!

(waits for you to leave this page…)

Sorry about that.

Anyway, on to serious business. I won’t bore you to tears going into details about my inner anguish at the fact that the series finale of Lost is tonight. Instead I’ll share with you just one of the many reasons why this show is so dear to me: The soundtrack.

Mmmm…absurdity, it’s delicious to my ears ;)

The mastermind behind the haunting and beautiful music of Lost is composer Michael Giacchino.

I’m not very good at providing flowery descriptions of songs or anything. I like to let music speak for itself. In this case, there’s a whole lot of it. Over the years, the music of Lost has been released as a series of soundtrack albums, with each album corresponding to a season of the show. Now, instead of posting a bunch of videos or music players for each song I like, I went ahead and put my favorite of these soundtrack albums (Season 3) into one playlist, along with my personal Lost favorite, “Life and Death”, at the end.

So go ahead! Listen to as little, or as much, as you want to.

WATCH the series finale of LOST tonight at 9pm EST on ABC!!!

Thank you :]

The American Dollar

So, a couple days ago I had a conversation with a friend in which she half-jokingly said to me, “I wish I was as stress free as you are.” to which I laughed because that isn’t true, I do stress out. I’m just a little quick  in the process of going from being faced with problems, to coming up with solutions. For me, it’s daily doses of calm music that help this process.

Recently I found out about this band called The American Dollar, that I think are brilliant.

The American Dollar

They create ambient, intrumental post-rock. I love their music because it creates such a moving surreal atmosphere which helps bring me back down to earth so to speak, great stress relief music. Here are a couple of my favorite songs by them, see and hear for yourself.

“ANYTHING YOU SYNTHESIZE”

“SECOND SIGHT”

“RUDIMENTS OF A SPIRITUAL LIFE”

from the album "The Technicolour Sleep"

They released a new album called “Atlas” back in January, so if you like what you hear, check it out!

Peace :P
