#ThrowbackThursday: Cliff Edwards – ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ (Pinocchio)

Pinocchio

So today’s throwback goes all the way back to Pinocchio, released in 1940.

This was Disney’s second movie, following their first release of Snow White (1939). If you like Snow White go check out my #Two4Tunesday post!

‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ will always be one of my top Disney songs, 75 years after it’s release and I can still enjoy it today. I like how the timelessness of their films and songs really brings out a type of ‘magic’ which is truly unique to Disney.

Pinocchio is an amazing film and there are so many aspects to it I love. The animation and artwork is admirable and the storyline is great to follow!

But I think above all this comes Jiminey Cricket – the real star of the show! He’s my favourite character of this film, I think it’s the top hat that wins me over, or maybe the miniature suite and umbrella.

Anyway, make sure you listen to this classic and find Matt’s #ThrowbackThursday here.

Week 2: 2015 – The Playlist

Happy Sunday!

We’ve had a great second week of ‘Muzik Speaks’, though still need to keep pushing the support of our chosen daily artists and try get them re-tweeting and sharing the links and your support is key to this. Below, you can find a playlist of this week’s tracks, in case you would like to listen to them all again (some of them are unfortunately missing from Spotify, because the artist hasn’t granted Spotify permission to have their songs on there), in one place!

Enjoy 🙂

Who’s looking forward to next week?! Well, get thinking of your daily songs to share!

#MellowMonday: Coldplay – ‘Magic’

Coldplay Banner

What a week that was, last week! Thanks for everyone’s support so far; especially Frankmusik and Dappy for their RT and sharing!

So it’s time for ‘Mellow Monday’ again! This week, I have chosen the Coldplay song, ‘Magic’. Coldplay are like royalty when it comes to writing mellow songs, but this particular song really captivates me.

I love the production of the bass and the fact it’s so prominent in the song as well as the sparse, drum-pad patterns alongside the melodic piano, married with Chris Martin’s vocals. Overall, the song is a fantastic production and builds up just the right amount, before mellowing out again, by the end.

A truly lovely transition into the week!

So what ‘Mellow Mondayness’ are you listening to today? Please share 🙂
