So, I found myself with some free time today. OK, I don’t really have free time, but I heard a song about a year ago on Pandora, and I loved it, then my boyfriend recently added a song to my playlist on his Spotify that he thought I’d like. I was heading home from the bank when I listened to it and realized a great similarity between the two songs. Even though there are plenty of more productive things I could be doing, my curiosity over came me, and I began my search for understanding. This is what I found.
Start the videos at the times listed to coordinate the music
The original song began as Clint Mansell’s Lux Aeterna. A theme song for the trippy movie Requiem for a Dream 3:36. Honestly the first three sound better with out the last one.
Then that same gentleman remixed it to become Requiem for a Tower for the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers’ movie trailer and games 0:47
Then numerous artists covered it including Escala which is the song my boyfrind shared with me 1:08
And at one point it became this incredibly epic song 300 Violin Orchestra for which I originally heard. Turn up the volume for best enjoyment. 0:30
