Erin's Picks

Post by Erin-Elizabeth on Sun Nov 16, 2014 12:30 am

I thought it might be best to just keep my music/videos to one thread, so as not to make a jumble of the forum. Smile So this'll be whatever pops into my head, that I feel like posting.

Tonight's pick:

Bottom of the River - Delta Rae




I looooooove to belt this one out, when no one is around; it's quite liberating!

What a good idea, Erin. I wish had thought of that!

I blame this one on my boyfriend. The phrase 'be prepared' popped up, in a game he's playing with friends, and this was instantly stuck in my head. I love a good Disney villain song! Fair warning, I may be on a Disney rampage, for a while.

Be Prepared from The Lion King

One of my favorite Christmas to watch (regardless of the time of year) is A Muppet Christmas Carol. I think it was the first movie I'd owned that was completely mine, and not a shared gift given to me and my siblings. I've recently discovered that one of my favorite songs in the film has been taken out, altogether! So. Lest it be forgotten, here it is:

When Love is Gone from A Muppet Christmas Carol

Annnnd because I just realized that Amber Sweet seems to have made an appearance in the above video...

Zydrate Anatomy from Repo! The Genetic Opera



I've had the pleasure of playing the role of Shilo (portrayed by Alexa Vega), numerous times. ^_^

I dream of singing this...

"Estrano/Ah, Fors'e Lui Che L'anima..." from La Traviata



**It took a lot of searching, to find an un-cut version of the piece! Most productions/performances leave out an entire page of this beautiful aria! Shame on them.

I used to perform it. Smile I've played Shilo about half a dozen times, and I've played Mag once. I miss it.

Well, I can tell you have a really great voice. Musicals must be fun for you.

You're into acting? Did you study theater, or is it just a hobby?

I'm VERY into acting, singing, dancing, writing, etc. Always have been. Smile Took classes for all of them, in high school, but no; I've never officially studied theatre.

I hadn't heard anything by the new Three Days Grace vocalist, because I was rather apprehensive. I didn't think anyone could suitably replace Adam Gontier. However... I stumbled onto this, today, and... I must say, I'm impressed. He's good! Now, I just need to hear him singing some of their older music, to be completely satisfied. A girl's gotta have standards, after all.

It did not work, Erin.
No problem, I have posted a copy of it, so the viewers in Europe can see it too.

This is one of my favorite scenes from Pitch Perfect! I think it would be fun as all get-out, to be able to take part in a 'riff off' like this one. Or even just taking part in an A Cappella group! ^_^

Here's a little something that I think we can all relate to. I've sung this many a time.

Something to Sing About - from Once More, with Feeling



I would have liked the actual scene, but they were all out of tune or in Spanish.

Life's a show and we all play our parts
And when the music starts, we open up our hearts
It's alright if somethings come out wrong
We'll sing a happy song, and you can sing along

Where there's life, there's hope
Everyday's, a gift
Wishes can, come true
Whistle while you work so hard, all day

To be like other girls
To fit in this glittering world
Don't give me songs, don't give me songs
Give me something to sing about
I need something to sing about

Life's a song, you don't get to rehearse
And every single verse, can make it that much worse
Still my friends, don't know why I ignore
The million things or more, I should be dancing for

All the joy, life sends
Family, and friends
All the twists, and bends
Knowing that, it ends
Well that, depends

On if they let you go
On if they know enough to know
That when you've bowed, you leave the crowd

There was no pain, no fear, no doubt
Till they pulled me out, of heaven
So that's my refrain
I live in hell, 'cuz I've been expelled from heaven
I think I was in heaven

So give me something to sing about
Please give me something

~~~~~ (Enter stage right - Spike)

Life's not a song
Life is a bliss
Life is just this, it's living
You'll get along

The pain that you feel
You only can heal, by living
You have to go on living
So one of us is living....

I. Love. That. Buffy. Episode!

I love you now, Erin. Simply for that. And this is a great song. I like that you relate to a lot of them.

My favorite and the one I've always put on repeat was "Going Through The Motions". That was the one that hit closest to me.

Slightly off topic, but were you a Buffy/Angel or Buffy/Spike fan?

Tough call! Though I think Dru and Spike were more interesting, just because Dru was such a space case (thanks to Angel).

Anyhoo... adding another personal song to the roster.

Taking a nostalgia trip! I once had the pleasure of performing this peace, when I was in high school. Brahms seemed to be our go-to, really. Not that I would ever complain! Lucky me, I was (and am) a first Soprano. ^_^ I miss being part of a choir; I really do.

Sehnsucht by Johannes Brahms



**Side note: This is not my class, it was simply the best quality performance that I could find, on youtube.
