When you hear Moonlight Music

When you hear Moonlight Music

Postby MoonShadow » Thu Aug 18, 2011 11:15 pm

I instantly think of the scene and episode begins to run through my head.

Today, Hungry Like a Wolf, by Duran Duran came on the radio of my car. It was everything I could do to keep driving and not diving for my Ipod
to play the episode. Thankfully, no traffic officers were about since I cranked up the volume, started humming along and imagined a red sheen on the hood of my car. :laugh:
I did keep an eye open for the grey ghost (perfect title Lily).

mmmmmm.....
Moonlight music made my morning. :laugh:

It always improves my day when I hear a song from the Moonlight soundtrack. And sometimes it brings me goodies. One day I was in a store, looking for something, and I didn't find what I wanted... so I was about to leave, and a Moonlight song came on the PA. I stayed in the store to listen to the song, and found a perfect travel purse, for cheap! :thumbs:

One thing that bugs me, though, is when I hear Moonlight music advertising another show. "Mercy" has been used more than once to advertise other TV shows, and it always grates. :madface: It's just wrong, darn it.

I know, right? I hate that!!
It's like they STOLE it!
Our show was so far ahead of the curve, ambience-wise, that I swear I think other art directors just lift things...

I'm ok with most of the music, as it usually brings fond memories of the show....the one exception is "Love Remains the Same". Can't help it, I just start to cry :hankie: :hankie:

While I don't cry, I do have a profound sense of sadness that something has ended too soon. Sigh...

It always lifts my mood. :smile: I can't help but have the scenes play back in my head. I often have great ideas for vids while listening to the lyrics while I walk. I never remember it when I get home though. :sigh:

I so agree with the annoying "stole that" feeling. ergh... and it's so surprising the emotional rush I get from hearing these songs.
They really did understand the power of well written, strong music as well as thoughtfully placed classics.

oh how I miss that "little show".

Love Remains The Same really does me in big time. I hear Moonlight music on other shows and that's just wrong. I lose my perspective in grocery and department stores when I hear any of the songs cause I'm transported back to the episode. :sigh: :sigh:

The songs that were played on Moonlight will forever be Moonlight music to us, but the rest of the world doesn't get it. So rent th DVD's already and catch a clue, people!

Those songs added to the ambiance of the show and benefitted from the ambiance created by the series in general.

There are a couple of songs that are not my favs, but that will always be true. For the most part they were absolutely wonderful. There has been music closely associated with TV shows forever, but...well, only Moonlight is Moonlight.

Just sayin'

I feel so good I am not alone...... when they advertised Nights in Rodanthe and then the song (Love Remains the Same) wasn't even in the movie I thought it was a cheap shot to corral the ML audience.

There are days when I hear 3 or 4 of the songs on the MUZAK at work and it just flutters my heart.....

I love that bouncy fluttery feeling... :teeth:
I know exactly what you mean.

If I happen to hear them in the department stores I have a tendency to wander off to the slinky dress sections and dream a bit... :happysigh:

I heard Into Dust play in the background of my TV and instantly thought of the wonderful ML scene. When I looked up it was an ad for Gears of War for Xbox. I find it odd when I hear songs I associate with ML on TV for something else. Doesn't work somehow...... :sigh:
