Music Help

Postby Grouperman941 » Fri Oct 10, 2008 11:56 am

I am working on a photo/video montage for my 20-year high school reunion, and I am looking for ideas for the soundtrack. (I am not old -- I graduated when I was 10 :-B ) We have photos from round 1985 to present.

There are quite a few obvious, cliche songs, like Nickelback's Photograph, that I want to avoid as much as possible, but I have to fill like 8-12 minutes with good music that fits the theme. I have a short list, but the more choices I have, the better I can do, and guys here have a huge knowledge of all sorts of music.

I appreciate any ideas. ;-D

Thanks!
Be excellent to each other.

There's that one crappy song about living for a hundred years or something...Five for Fighting, I think. Or Meatloaf's Objects in the Rearview Mirror might work.

Well, I'd like to do a little more production than that and tell a story with the presentation if I could, though we were the Breakfast Club generation, and I'll probably get that in there somewhere.

I'll go overboard, match the transitions to the beats, and try and match up lyrics with pics at certain points, and even change genre depending on the group in the pics.

Thanks for all the replies so far. I actually never heard of Vitamin C, and even though you were joking, I bet I could use at least the chorus of that song. That's is just the kind of thing I was looking for.

Time is a little depressing. I thought about Free Four in there somewhere, too.

Thanks for suggesting the crappy song, Art. :-b I actually like that song, but I don't think it fits, and it was really overplayed. I actually have used it before too, and it has been in too many commercials.

I'd like it to be more of an 'Old Friends' and 'Coming Home' theme --

possibilities:

Home Sweet Home -- Motley Crue
Mama I'm coming Home -- Ozzie
Hello Old Friend -- Eric Clapton
I Get By ... -- Joe Cocker
Pretty Maids all in a Row -- Eagles (Joe Walsh)


If I get more sports pics, I'll use some sports songs like centerfield.

I want to use the 'Our Gang' theme from Little Rascals with an old film effect, with a bunch of group pics, too.

Any other ideas?
Be excellent to each other.
