Doin' the Friday Shuffle
1. "Love Walked In" - Ella Fitzgerald - Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Gershwin Songbook
Old-school Hollywood style - you can see the orchestra in their tuxes and the dance floor and the romantic leads dancing delicately together and falling in love as she sings.
2. "Childhood Remembered" - Danny Elfman - Batman (Score)
One of the score's less bombastic pieces. All hushed strings and ethereal choir.
3. "The Big Light (Live)" - Elvis Costello - King of America
From the bonus CD on the Rhino re-release. A rollicking, countrified rendition.
4. "Brilliant Disguise" - Bruce Springsteen - Tunnel of Love
A perfect pop song.
5. "Star to Follow" - Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve and Other Stories
Maybe a piece based almost entirely around voice wasn't the best choice for these guys.
6. "Workingman's Blues #2"- Bob Dylan - Modern Times
Sweet and crisp and dusky- you can feel the soft breeze and the setting of the sun.
7. "Let You Down" - Dave Matthews Band - Crash
The wife's. Don't really know this one.
8. "Under Your Spell/Standing (Reprise)" - Joss Whedon - Once More with Feeling
Haven't seen the Scrubs musical yet, but am guessing that this will remain the gold standard.
9. "She Loves You" - The Beatles - 1
Truth? I really don't like this song.
10. "Main Titles (Sommersby)" - Danny Elfman - Music for a Darkened Theater (Vol II)
One of Elfman's lost scores - nothing like his standard style, but more like a John Barry epic Western sound, really.
