Images can evoke many emotions, and lo and behold so can music. Combining the two together and bam! you could be an emotional wreck. Music can fit into a scene and set the mood in a instant, I want to explore the types of images that can bring a certain song to mind and set that perfect ratio of image to music emotion.
The Cigarette Duet - Princess Chelsea
Fairgrounds. Either you find them super terrifying, anxious that a killer clown will jump around the corner and steal your candy floss, or you love them, buying so much candy floss that no matter how many killer clowns were stealing from you would still have endless amounts. The Cigarette Duet comes in heavy on the eerie, creepy fair ground music with fantastical elements taking you on a whimsical journey through the air of a fairs wheel, each person in the carriage becoming distorted, their faces becoming a wall of eyes.
Real Love Baby - Father John Misty
Sitting on green green grass with perfect company and a view, what more could you ask for? Father John Misty sets the perfect scene for this image of clarity “I’m in love, I’m alive” and he wants everyone to know, giddy eyed and loved up. Looking over that view of London away from the hustle, you are on top of the world, find you sense of clarity, wash yourself clean.
Harry Nilsson - Everybody’s Talkin’
Everybody’s Talkin’ and they in fact are, sometimes the everybody needs to be a little more quiet to settle down the agitation. When in Wales there is no better time, no internet, no phone signal, just sheep and open spaces galore, nature can talk to you now, the humming of the birds and the sound of dewy grass skimming past your ears.
Walk On By - Aretha Franklin
Let Franklin’s smooth voice sail you through the street as the warm glow fills the walls and blinds the windows, opening a spacious entry of light and soul for you, and suddenly the high street of your home town maybe doesn't become so boring anymore. The mass of people has died down and its just you, Franklin and the hanging baskets undulating in the wind, beckoning the sweet melodies to help the flowers grow.
Echoes - Pink Floyd
People becoming smaller and more distant, as the tunnel stretches on before you and leads you forward. Sounds echoing off of the walls distorting your hearing but the lights make you drowsy Pink Floyd’s ‘Echoes’ does exactly this, the ending sounding like an airplane landing muffled into your headrest as would your dream state ridden doze through the never ending tunnel.
