Trailer for Ireland’s Oscar Entry ‘Song of Granite’ About a Folk Singer

Song of Granite Trailer

“The songbirds of the air listened in wonder to this song, the most beautiful song in life.” Oscilloscope Laboratories has debuted an official US trailer for a film titled Song of Granite, which is Ireland’s entry into the Academy Awards this year. This film is about an Irish singer named Joe Heaney, who was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (also known as sean nós). Similar to I’m Not There in a way, this seems to involve various musicians and actors playing Heaney, and it’s shot in stunning B&W which seems to make it all the more mesmerizing. Starring Colm Seoighe (as young Joe Heaney), Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola (as Joe Heaney, 40s), Macdara Ó Fátharta (as Joe Heaney, 60s) & Jaren Cerf (as Rosie). This looks like a very soulful, moving film full of some exceptional Irish singing and captivating cinematography. See below. ›››

Macklemore’s gonna piss off intolerant rugby fans with this song, and he doesn’t care

TwitterFacebook

It’s not just America grappling with sports and politics.

Macklemore is facing criticism in Australia for his plan to perform his 2013 song “Same Love” at the National Rugby League (NRL) grand final on Saturday. It’s the country’s largest event, equivalent to the Super Bowl, for Rugby League.

The choice of song has vexed conservative commentators. Tony Abbott, the country’s former prime minister, tweeted about a petition concerned about the “LGBTIQ anthem taking centre stage” at the event.

“Footy fans shouldn’t be subjected to a politicised grand final. Sport is sport!” Abbott tweeted on Wednesday. Read more…

Man’s song about April the giraffe’s never-ending pregnancy speaks to our frustrated souls

TwitterFacebook

Welp, April the giraffe still hasn’t given birth and, frankly, we’re over it.

If you’ve been living under a rock for what seems like the last year and half (but has actually only been the past two months), April is an extremely pregnant giraffe that lives at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. A livestream anticipating April delivering her baby began in mid-February, so everyone could witness the miracle birth.

But now it’s April (the month) and STILL NO BABY. 

While there have been some movement and many updates, April the giraffe remains one big, pregnant tease. 

Feeling our frustration, Ricky Rilley, one of the many of us who are fed up with the waiting, was challenged on Facebook to write a song entirely dedicated to April’s never-ending pregnancy. So he did. And it’s actually really catchy.  Read more…

‘Sandy Wexler’ Music Video: A Catchy Song Is Wasted on an Adam Sandler Movie

Sandy Wexler Music Video

Next week brings the release of Adam Sandler‘s latest original movie coming exclusively to Netflix. The film is called Sandy Wexler, and it takes place all the way back in 1994, starring Adam Sandler himself as a goober of a talent agent with a roster of peculiar clients who are from from making it big. But Sandy Wexler’s life changes when he stumbles upon a new face, and more importantly, a new voice.

Sandy Wexler also stars Jennifer Hudson as Courtney Clarke, an aspiring singer who the titular agents takes under his wing and somehow ends up having a fledgling career despite having a complete buffoon for representation. The Netflix original movie is really going for the music side of the movie with at least one original song being produced for the film, and an official Sandy Wexler music video introduces us to the catchy tune. Unfortunately, it’s accompanied by footage from the movie too.

Here’s the Sandy Wexler music video straight from Netflix:

The video has some 1990s flair to it, and the sound actually feels like a blend of the pop music of today and 20 years ago. Helping give the song the right vibe is the fact that it was written and produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, complete with a rap verse from Ma$ e, who gets a little too close to “Courtney Clarke” for Sandy’s comfort.

For those paying attention to the footage in the music video, it pretty much gives away the whole story (though it wasn’t that hard to predict how it was going to go anyway). Besides that, the footage includes shots of all of Adam Sandler’s usual cronies making appearances as Sandy Wexler’s weird clients. You know what, maybe just look away and listen to the song, because it’s not bad for a pop tune.

If you dare, watch the Sandy Wexler trailer released not too long ago right here.

Holed up in a remote cabin amidst the desolate wilds of Northern Wales, the two embark on a grueling six-month series of dark rituals that will push them both to the physical and psychological breaking point.

Listen to Every Song Ever Featured in a Martin Scorsese Movie

Check out this 326 track, 20-hour Spotify playlist encompassing 25 of Scorsese’s films.

Martin Scorsese’s ear for music is just about as good as his eye for pictures. Some of his most iconic shots are accompanied by equally iconic tracks from bands like The Band, Bob Dylan, and of course, The Rolling Stones. Who can forget The Stones’ Gimme Shelter behind the husky narration of Jack Nicholson’s Frank Costello in the opening sequence of The Departed?

But Scorsese’s involvement in the music scene goes much deeper than simply having good taste. In addition to his prolific career in feature films, he’s made a number of music documentaries and concert films, including 1978’s The Last Waltz, which captured The Band’s farewell concert, spearheading the documentary series The Blues for PBS; 2005’s No Direction Home, on Bob Dylan; the majorly influential Rolling Stones doc Shine a Light; and 2011’s Living in the Material World, on George Harrison.
