Monday Music Medicine Show – Variations on a Theme

The Monday Music Medicine Show LOGO

Welcome to the Monday Music Medicine Show!

Week three of THE 42, continues with soundtrack music. Often, there is a specific theme which runs through soundtracks, thus many of the pieces contain this theme in one form or another.

One of my college days favorite soundtracks was from the movie, Serpico, staring Al Pacino. This video is a LONG PLAY which contains all of the selections of the soundtrack. I always find it to be beautiful, with moments which are sometimes jovial, light and airy, then becoming quite sensual, with a gentle jazzy sense, morphing into strangely discordant sections building up suspense. There is also a tenderness and a saddness weaves its way through those moments which denote the tragedy of this true story.

The Theme from Serpico – Mikis Theodorakis

So my beautiful Monday Music Medicine Show friends, what instrumental theme from a movie captivates you, brings back vividly, the scenes, as you listen, and relive the pathos therein? You know I want to hear it! Share it there (your own blog with a ping back), or share it here.

BYOM and  remember: It Don’t Mean A Thing If You Don’t Send That PING!

Music is the Medicine in my Soul and I hope yours is as healing and nurturing as mine!
