My top picks for free music and movie downloads
If I ever won a contest where I could download my top movie and music choices, I already know what I would choose. Here are my top 5 movie picks:
Beautiful Mind: It’s a beautiful film based on the life of John Forbes Nash, a Nobel Laureate in Economics and it was directed by Ron Howard. The star cast of this movie includes Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Christopher Plummer and Paul Bettany. Russell Crowe portrayed Nash’s character, a schizophrenic prodigy who used to see three characters in his hallucinations. Russell was brilliant in it. The film is very inspirational. Mental illness is not something that has to stop anyone.
Cast Away: A great movie starring Tom Hanks. In this film a man tries to survive on his own, totally isolated from the civilization, on an island. It shows why it’s important to believe in your own skills and knowledge. I love Tom Hanks. He makes his characters so real and believable.
Forest Gump: Another one that stars Tom Hanks. This story is about an autistic man and his life’s unusual turns and twist. Tom Hanks won an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for this film. He really deserved it.
Mission Impossible 2: I loved the first and the second one.
Life Is Beautiful: This film is so touching. It illustrates the beauty and strength of a loving relationship. How Guido, the lead role, helped his family during their internment in a Nazi concentration camp and the sacrifices he made to save his son’s life touched me deeply. It’s an amazing movie where you will laugh and cry and you will never forget it.
My top 10 music choices that I would love to download for free are:
1. High Hopes: Pink Floyd’s song by David Gilmour. I just love the its composition.
2. Wish You Were Here: Another amazing song of Pink Floyd.
3. Leaving on a jet Plane: An oldie but goodies beautiful by John Denver.
4. Perhaps Love: A song sung by John Denver and Domingo Placido. I like most the lyrics of this song.
I am a great fan of the band Scorpion. I just love their album Acoustica which was recorded during three concerts, at Convento do Beato, Lisbon, Portugal. The composition and rearrangement was so unusual. I prefer that version over the original. My preference would be to download almost all of the songs from this album as you can see from my list.
5. Holiday (Scorpion from the album Acoustica)
6. Hurricane (Scorpion from the album Acoustica)
7. Moment of Glory (Scorpion from the album Acoustica)
8. Dust in the Wind –It’s also on Acoustica. I love how they covered this classic song. What I like most is the Cello part of this song.
9. Hotel California – The all time favorite hit song of the Eagles.
10. Tears In Heaven – A beautiful song by Eric Clapton. The sad experience behind this song is what makes this song so strong. Clapton wrote this song after his 4-year-old son Conor died.
