The Sound of Gonzo Vol. 11: MARVEL

Recently the excellent YouTube series Every Frame a Painting asked members of the public if they could hum any of the music from the Marvel films. Unsurprisingly they couldn’t come up with anything. There are a few reasons for this, that I go into on the show, but this presentation right here is crafted to allow everyone to explore the music that has come so far. We laser-focus on the core melodies, the hero themes that were left by the wayside as the series evolved and we showcase the wide range of actually rather brilliant musical moments that have punctuated the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Join me for an epic, three hour musical journey, run through the filter of my brain. By the end, if I’ve done my job, you’ll be able to hum at least one piece of Marvel music. 1.   Marvel Logo (Thor: The Dark World) 2.   Back in Black – AC/DC (Iron Man) 3.   Mark II/Driving With the Top Down/Gulmira – Ramin Djawadi (Iron Man) 4.   Iron Man – Black Sabbath (Iron Man) 5.   Main Titles – Craig Armstrong (The Incredible Hulk) 6.   Thunderstruck – AC/DC (Iron Man 2) 7.   Black Widow Kicks Ass/ I Am Iron Man – John Debney (Iron Man 2) 8.   Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC (Iron Man 2) 9.   Prologue/The Compound/Forgive Me/Thor Kills the Destroyer – Patrick Doyle (Thor) 10.   Walk – Foo Fighters (Thor) 11.   Main Titles/Farewell to Bucky/The Star Spangled Man/Triumphant Return/Captain America March – Alan Silvestri (Captain America: The First Avenger) 12.   Main Titles/Helicarrier/Avengers Assemble/A Promise/End Titles – Alan Silvestri (Avengers Assemble) 13.   Live to Rise – Chris Cornel (Avengers Assemble) 14.   Main Titles/Can You Dig It? – Brian Tyler (Iron Man 3) 15.   End Titles/Into Eternity – Brian Tyler (Thor: The Dark World) 16.   Lemurian Star/Project Insight/The Causeway/To the End of the Line/Taking a Stand – Henry Jackman (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) 17.   Soundtrack Medley (Guardians of the Galaxy) 18.   The Kyln Escape/Groot Spores/Groot Cocoon (Guardians of the Galaxy) 19.   Age of Ultron Theme – Danny Elfman (Avengers: Age of Ultron) 20.   Escape – Roger Ayer (Ant-Man) 21.   Ant Man Theme – Christophe Beck (Ant-Man) 22.   Plainsong – The Cure (Ant-Man) 23.   Siberian Overture/Ancestral Call/New Recruit/Closure/Cap’s Promise – Henry Jackman (Captain America: Civil War) 24.   Sharks Don’t Sleep – Dean Valentine (Civil War Trailer) 25.   New Marvel Fanfare 26.   Strange Days Ahead/The Master of the Mystic End Credits – Michael Giacchino (Doctor Strange) https://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/download/k5g6k9/The_Sound_of_Gonzo_Vol_11_-_Marvel.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

The Sound of Gonzo Vol. 10: Disney

We’re bringing this classic show format back after three years away (somehow it skipped over the entirety of Digital Drift). This is the prologue to our 90s Disney Renaissance series of podcasts. Since the songs get so much love and attention and are going to be showcased on our podcasts anyway I brought in James Batchelor to pick with me, pieces of music from the scores of ten years of the very best movies from the house of Mouse. 1. The Little Mermaid – Fathoms Below (Alan Menken 2. Rescuers Down Under – Cody’s Flight (Bruce Broughton) 3. Beauty and the Beast – Transformation (Alan Menken) 4. Aladdin – Cave of Wonders (Alan Menken) 5. The Lion King – King of Pride Rock (Hans Zimmer) 6. Pocahontas – Farewell (Alan Menken) 7. The Hunchback of Notre Dame – The Bell Tower (Alan Menken) 8. Hercules – A True Hero (Alan Menken) 9. Mulan – Burned Out Village (Jerry Goldsmith) 10.
