Some cool music images:

My just-under-the-wire contribution for this week’s 52 Reasons theme of music, paper, and plants.
The poem is Dos Amantes Dichosos by Pablo Neruda, the poem that we had read (in English and Spanish) at our wedding. The rose is the last of a bouquet that I got for Amy for mother’s day. The guitar is mine, but in all honesty it’s served more time as a photo prop than as a musical outlet lately.

I have a special little iTunes playlist for building:
“Aviva Pastoral” by Nathan Larson
[from the soundtrack to “Palindromes”]
Maybe you heard it in that awesome video with the melting chocolate bunnies.
“Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven
Maybe you heard it in a movie somewhere, because it gets a lot of play.
“Everyday” by Carly Comando
Maybe you came across that YouTube video of the guy taking a picture of himself every day for six years. This song was the soundtrack.
“Genova” by Textile Ranch and Charles Atlas
Maybe you saw the teaser for “Up in the Air”; this song was used to great effect.
“Six Days” by DJ Shadow
Maybe you caught the music video directed by Wong Kar-Wai.
“Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun” by M83
Maybe you saw that trippy slo-mo skate video, which gets officially awesome at 1:52, and only gets better from there.
“Song for Bob” by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
[from the soundtrack to “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”]
Maybe you watched the damn movie, because that’s probably the only place you’d hear it. (link contains spoilers)
“Six Gnossiennes: I. Lent” by Erik Satie
Maybe you saw the documentary “Man on Wire,” or any other independent movie, because it’s an indie favorite.
“Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92: II. Allegretto” by Beethoven
Maybe you saw the trailer or, even better, the opening credits to an awe-inspiring movie called “The Fall”.
“Nature Boy” by Miles Davis
Maybe you have heard Nat King Cole’s version, or David Bowie’s in Moulin Rouge, or Frank Sinatra’s, because it’s just one of those well-used songs.
"The Truth About Ruth” by Alexandre Desplat
[from the soundtrack to “The Ghost Writer”]
Maybe you heard it when you saw the movie, and if you haven’t, you should, because it’s awesome.
“Rabbia e Tarantella” by Ennio Morricone
Maybe you saw “Inglourious Basterds,” which I maintain was a Western, not a war movie, and borrowed heavily from the Morricone portfolio.
