I’ve got a lot of random stuff in my music collection. Things that I’ve acquired from places and people I don’t remember. I love listening to my music (via iTunes) on random for the very fact that I find things I didn’t realize I had. This is one of those moments.
I was listening to some music the other day while knitting and a piece of instrumental music came up that I hadn’t heard before (or if I had I didn’t realize it). I heard it again the next day, and again a week later. The piece came up this morning while I was going through my morning routine and I finally thought to myself that I should find out what it was.
To my surprise, it was a Hans Zimmer piece from a movie I had never seen before and can not for the life of me figure out where I acquired it from. (I tend to get OST’s after I’ve seen the movie or at the recommendation of a friend – and I am pretty sure no one I get recommendations from has seen this particular movie.)
The piece is called The Long Road Back from the movie Spirit : Stallion of the Cimarron. The score was done by Hans Zimmer (with songs by Bryan Adams).
I love the flow of this piece of music and while the title in conjunction with the movie would lead one to believe that it is sad, I find the music always makes me smile and rather happy. It’s very strange, I know.
Take a moment to listen to it, tell me what you think.
