What is a contemporary classic? Generally it is something that has an all time appeal and will never grow old. I know I highlight a lot of hip hop/pop/r&b on my blog, but I wanted to create a section that focuses on the other music that I listen to. You know – my classics… It may be Easy Listening, Brazilian Jazz, Anime music, movie soundtracks, 80’s music, whatever…
The first installment will feature one of my favorite soundtracks – it is from the 2001 French film, Amelie. The movie was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and the soundtrack was composed by Yann Tiersen. The soundtrack features both compositions from Tiersen’s first three albums, but also new items, variants of which can be found on his fourth album, L’Absente, which he was writing at the same time.
