Music Mondays #MM on Twitter: “We Remain” by Christina Aguilera [from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire]


No official lyric video or music video, but found this fan-made lyric video on YouTube.   Surprised there hasn’t been as much of a push with this song as there was with “Atlas” by Coldplay (the first official single for the Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack).  In recent years, though, none of Xtina’s press (or lack thereof) has made sense.   Yes, I’m an Xtina fan and I think she needs to fire her press/promotion people and start fresh with a whole new team.  Or, maybe it’s the record company.  If that’s the case, she needs to change record companies.  Okay, that’s enough of my aside.  Enjoy!

The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire opens on November 22, 2013.

Music Mondays #MM on Twitter: “Batdance” by Prince [from Batman]


I can’t find the video on YouTube and can’t figure out how to embed it from the websites I can find it on, so here’s a link.

The Tim Burton Batman films are my favorites of all the Batman films especially the second.  Love me that fierce Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman and the costume is inspired.  If he had gotten to make a third one, I think it would have been the best Batman trilogy ever.

That said, the soundtrack is also amazing.  It was all Prince.  From one purple one to a universe that includes another purple one.  To my knowledge, this model hasn’t been followed by any other record company for super hero movies since.  That is, allowing one artist to do an entire soundtrack.

It’s a shame because I think it would lead to some creative, innovative stuff.  It’d be interesting to hear one known artist’s musical interpretation of a super hero film and their take  on its characters and universe.  Might have something to do with the sticky copyright situation created by Warner Bros.  Prince not getting to re-release most of the Batman stuff on his compilations and the merchandising issues that came from it.  This is “Batdance.”
