The Great Gatsby

15 May

Have any of you seen the new Great Gatsby movie yet?!  If so, what did you think?  Jonathan and I saw it this past weekend, and we were really impressed!  The director, Baz Luhrmann, put a lot of thought and effort into the music for the movie.  Because this story takes place during the Jazz era, Luhrmann wanted the viewers to get a sense of the feeling that came along with the arrival of Jazz.  He seamlessly fused together modern music with the energy of the Jazz era.  It is truly amazing.  The below video is a great featurette explaining the music behind the movie.  I highly recommend watching it before you see the movie!

Swedish House Mafia

19 Dec

Good morning dear friends!  Today I have something very random, and very amazing for you!  Well, I think it is amazing, but you may feel differently.  The other night Jonathan and I were watching youtube videos when we stumbled upon a video from a music festival in Sweden.  The band is called Swedish House Mafia, and they put on the most epic performance.  I don’t know anything about this band, but I will say, this video makes me want to dance!  I just can’t get enough of that beat!  So, I thought I would post this video for you to enjoy as well.  Hopefully it is just the pick-me-up you needed today.

Ps. If you are having trouble viewing the video, click the youtube icon to watch the video through the youtube website.

I would love to hear what you think of this beat/song/video?
