You are pregnant and you are worried about giving birth? Take a look at the ideal music playlist concocted by the Fairfax OBGYN-obstetrician Jacques Mortiz so that the birth goes at best! This ” birthing playlist ” was launched by the doctor on the music streaming service Spotify.
If you have not thought of the song on which your baby could come into the world, here are some suggestions … In the program of this playlist, slow and soothing titles, then, when it is time To push, rhythmic songs. As explained by Dr. Jacques Mortiz, she “reflects the different stages of childbirth” and ends with Bach’s suite No. 1, performed by Yo-Yo Ma, for the moment when the woman finally meets her new -born. Thirty songs are offered, from “Sunrise” by Norah Jones to “Under Pressuire” by David Bowie, “Do not Panic” by Coldplay, “Beautiful Boy” by John Lennon, “All of Me” by John Legend, “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam or “Blue” by Beyoncé.
For Dr. Jacques Mortiz, this playlist was born from an observation: 70% of its patients put music during the work and the rescue and did not necessarily want to hear the famous “Push !!! “. In his view, “music has a strong influence on the limbic system of our central nervous system, which manages our memories, emotions, and the way we treat fear and pain, and adds that it makes sense that Women turn to music during childbirth as a source of comfort and strength “
There is no need for anything specific to watch a Kostenlos movie that talks about the work and feats of your favorite musicians. In fact, the life of those who have given everything for the composition is also an endless source of themes to bring to the big screen.
This year we already saw Montage of heck on Kurt Cobain and it was recently announced that there would be a series about Patti Smith . Apparently, Showtime also want to get you to exploit the nostalgia and reach the fans of the interpreter of “Because the Night”. The series will be based on the book Just Kids , the autobiographical (and so fashionable) text of Smith.
While we wait for the first chapter to come out, we recommend these couchtuner movies and documentaries about some of your favorite musicians.
1. The Monkees
At the height of the British pop bands (and taking advantage of a pre-made band), producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider summoned musicians looking for talent for a series originally about how a pop band could be kept. Thus they created The Monkees, a group that (although everyone knew that neither composed nor touched) had great acceptance among the public.
2. The Doors
Directed by Oliver Stone , it was released in 1991 and was not very well received, mainly because Jim Morrison was portrayed like a psychotic and not like a real musician, thing that exploded to the fans and to other members of The Doors. Then why should you see her? Because his way of recreating the atmosphere of the 60’s is quite accurate and makes us fantasize about a time when many wanted to have lived.
3. Walk the line
The life of Johnny Cash was told by James Mangold in 2005. As a memoir of an already acclaimed musician, in this document we can see Johnny working as a farmer, suffering for the death of his brother and enlisting in the Air Force and Being sent to Germany. But since it’s a movie about music, you can also see it when you sign up with Sun Records and you become the legendary musician you are today.
Originally the movie would be about recording the disc; However, after Lennon’s death, it was necessary for the project to become larger and ended up becoming a semblance of John’s life and work. The man behind that decision was Andrew Solt . On the tape appear Yoko Ono , Phil Spector , Paul, George and Ringo talking about the singer. You have to see it if you are one of the many fans of The Beattles. This work deals with Lennon’s career within the Liverpool Quartet and then solo, and includes an acoustic version of “Real Love” and an essay prior to the recording of “Imagine”, both unknown until then.
A few years ago Joy Division became fashionable, and partly it was thanks to films like this one. Control is the version of the story told by Deborah Curtis , the widow of Ian Curtis, and was brought to the screen by Anton Corbijn . The best of the film is the setting of that sevens England that continues to fall in love with the world. In a veiled way, everything revolves around Ian’s relationship with his wife; Later on the character and the illness of the vowel, as well as of the formation and the success achieved by Joy Division until his death.
6. The Runnaways
The film was directed by Floria Sigimondi and is based on the book Neon Angel, a memoir of a Runnaway . On the screen and in the book shows the relationship between Cherie Currie (played by Dakota Fanning ) and Joan Jett, since the birth of the band. In it we can appreciate how these two musicians felt that having a band was more than selling a prefabricated product.
7. I’m not there
It is never said that we are seeing Bob Dylan’s life on the screen, but we all know we are seeing Bob Dylan’s life on the screen. The film is by Todd Haynes, and actors such as Richard Gere , Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett play Bob at different times in his life. If you’re a Minnesota fan we know you’ve seen it; But if you are not, this is your chance to enter the work of one of the greatest musicians in history.
The association Musique, which advocates that music play a more significant role in the political debate, proposes a survey and Ipsos Review that illustrates the importance of music in the lives of French people.
Over the last four months, the association Tous pour la Musique , which includes players in the music industry such as Sacem and Adami , has launched a consultation with elected officials, experts and the general public to strengthen the position of Music in society. At the end of this dialogue, 13 proposals emerged and were presented to the candidates in the presidential election.
In order to support this approach, the association also published a survey, conducted with the FIFG with 1,000 people, demonstrating the importance of music in the lives of French people. We learn that music is the favorite cultural activity of 60% of respondents, in front of reading and cinema. They are however only 11% to play often or from time to time an instrument. For 90% of the French, music is an element that promotes living together in our society and 70% think that music and artists are a gathering force in the service of a social or political cause. Finally, 84% of French people believe that the success of French artists contributes to the influence of France.
The musical offer
According to this survey, 87% of French people think that the online music offer is satisfactory, rich, diverse and accessible. The same goes for the entertainment offer, which satisfies 66% of the respondents, a figure which rises to 77% for the inhabitants of Paris region but down to 59% for those of the Southwest. Regarding the audiovisual landscape, 43% of the respondents think that there is not enough music on television and for 35% of them there is not enough diversity on the radio and TV .
The means dedicated to music
62% of respondents felt that the resources allocated to music education were inadequate and 75% of French people felt that each school should have the financial means to set up an orchestra or a choir. A very large majority – 92% – believe that the big Internet companies that benefit from music should be more involved in creative financing. 83% of respondents believe that online music should benefit from a reduced rate of VAT to encourage musical creation in France, and 62% favor favorable taxation for companies in the music sector. Finally, for 7 out of 10 French people, music is not sufficiently present in the programs of the presidential campaign. A result that goes in the direction of the action of the association,
Aspirated art, a pictorial-sonic action of Pelayo Fernández Arrizabalaga, carried out by means of an appliance of common use. Alternative Festival of the Performing Arts. Círculo de Bellas Artes of Madrid, January 31, 2002.
Pelayo Fernández Arrizabalaga offered at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid a show titled Música aspirada realized with a household appliance of common use: the vacuum cleaner. It was an interdisciplinary show that had sound, visual and theatrical aspects. He improvised a picture made on a canvas with charcoal and aid of a vacuum cleaner: laying, quintado and tracing. The work appeared in the eyes of the public, who could see, at the same time, the sound effects – duly amplified – caused by suction, friction, bomb, gestures … The artist finished as dirty as a chimney sweep.
In the end he distributed some sheets in which he offered the finished work for 200,000 pesetas. As no one bid within the given five-minute deadline, Then proceeded to erase the creation causing exclamations of regret mixed with applause. It was an action that invited to the reflection on the evanescence of the art, the improvisation, the random of the inspiration, the speculation and many other things.
The public was amused observing the development of the work, more attentive perhaps to the eye than to the ear. Pelayo Fernández Arrizabalaga is an artist who has lived in Switzerland for some years. I remember his participation, long ago, at the Jazz Festival in Madrid, with a saw with which he made a creation on a wooden board. This time he has participated in the Contemporary Scene, the Alternative Festival of the Performing Arts whose musical part, Dedicated in this edition to Music and Synesthesia, coordinates Llorenç Barber. In presenting Pelayo, Barber commented on the importance of inspiration in artistic creation, including perspiration and, in this particular case, aspiration.

Learn how to protect sensitive information and prevent it from being made available to third parties
Computers (desktop and laptop) and our mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) have become very important devices for our lives. In them we store all our information, from the most common and everyday to the most important and private.
Despite being high-tech devices, it is inevitable that at some point these devices fall into the hands of third parties, either when we must bring them to repair or when we are victims of thieves.
CAUTION BEFORE EVERYTHING
The singer Ezio Oliva denounced a few days ago that private information was stolen from his laptop when he sent for repair. Will there be any way to protect that information?
Trade consulted the specialist Internet and social networks and consultant for CNN Silvina Moschini and technology experts Peruvian Arturo Goga and Jesus Veliz to share the four main recommendations in this regard.
But before starting there is a basic concept that must be taken into account: take your devices to authorized service centers or, if not, they are your trust. Sometimes the most economical alternative can make you spend more money or cause other concerns. You can use deltaextranet for personal data protection, more recommendations below:
1. Encrypt your data so that only you can access them
While data encryption sounds more appropriate for large corporations, it can also be a good ally for you. ” Doing it is a lot easier than most people think. There are many options for both Windows and for Mac , “says Moschini. In Windows, select the folder, right click and select Properties. In Advanced Settings, you must select Encrypt Content to protect the data. For the operating system OS X (Apple) can use the FileVault .This mechanism uses an advanced encryption standard that is used by the US Government
How to encrypt files in Windows
2. Make backups or backups regularly
The experts consulted agree on something: the most important information must be stored outside of your main device. The backup should be done regularly and periodically. “It is preferable to have multiple copies of that information,” says Arturo Goga. “And that external disk must be in a safe place,” adds Silvina Moschini. “It’s also an option to use storage systems in the cloud,” says Jesus Véliz. An alternative is to use the online service BackBlaze that charges $ 5 per month.
3. Enable a Guest Account for Third-Party Access
More and more devices have the ability to create profiles or accounts for guests. This procedure is simpler in computers. This type of profiles allows limited access to third parties. For example, the technician will be able to access the operating system to review it, but will not be able to consult the sensitive information of the machine owner. Also, in this way it will not be necessary to give the password to a stranger. “If this is not possible, be sure to be present during repair your computer, so you can prevent theft of information , ” explains Arturo Goga.

4. Seek to protect you on the Internet and in the service center
Once again experts agree that it is important to contact authorized service centers (especially if you can still use the guarantee) or to use people you trust. It should be remembered that while browsing the Internet, information is also stored. That is why it is fundamental to clean the temporary files and the history of browsers. ” Set your browser to not accept cookies. Also opt for the encryption of conversations of chat and e-mail. Off-the-record messaging can be used in Google Hangouts and Facebook , “explains Moschini.
Periodic cleaning. There are free programs like CCleaner that allow periodic cleaning of web browsing histories and other temporary files on the computer.
No access. Some browsers like Chrome allow you to synchronize information with different devices (computer, tablet, smartphone). The same chat conversation can appear on several platforms. Close the session completely on the different devices.
Not everything is important. You do not need to carry your files everywhere. Services like Google Drive or Dropbox can be used for backups.
The ideas that we present today were born during the crisis in the United States, and for the most part belong to people who lost their jobs and were forced to undertake. Others simply saw the opportunity to shape that business they had been thinking about for years. Although some of these businesses are more original and others are not so original, but they are very simple, some require more investment and other less investment, all have something in common, is that today (2013) , are being profitable for its creators .

3. A very sophisticated cinema.
Big Picture is a luxury movie theater where you have cocktail bar, restaurant and meeting space. In this cinema you can watch new and old movies. In occasion they create events, where if they are going to project a period film, it becomes a celebration where the people must dress of time. The entrepreneurs who developed this idea, have managed to make this “cinema” a benchmark in their city. No longer a hybrid business (cinema, restaurant, pub and event hall).

Cleaning companies are many, but what makes the difference in Steam and clean , is that they are one of the few cleaning companies that do not use chemicals or detergents. Instead, they use high pressure steam cleaners and steam mops and at high temperature to kill bacteria. It also filters the wastewater and reuses it.

The Mexican actress Angelica Vale rose enough weight after breastfeeding her second child. Because of this he began to exercise and to eat healthily, but he did not lose those extra pounds. Then he became very depressed. What did? The magazine ‘People’ in Spanish interviewed the artist and this counted.
Angelica Vale went to where endocrinologist , who prescribed pills and diet injections. With this, accompanied by a healthy diet and exercises, the interpreter of ‘The most beautiful ugly’ managed to lose 13 kilos.
“I feel happy, I feel much more active … Best of all , it did not cost me much work, because the problem was not what I ate, but a hormonal problem that occurred after pregnancy. Women should tell us that after giving birth, we should go to an endocrinologist . Is more I say, pass the tip, because the hormones are completely uneven , “said Angelica Vale to ‘People’ in Spanish.
The actress said that after her pregnancy your hormones were totally uneven. She when not know I had this problem alone eat, vegetables, tuna and chicken, and go to the doctor told him that was not going to lose weight as well, because it is not a question of what you eat and how much, it is a hormonal problem .
“I’m still on treatment. I want to go lower to be much prettier (laughs) and, above all, to be healthier for my children. Also, try to make a low – carbohydrate diet, and treatment hormonal are pills and injections , ” he said the actress .

A short circuit generated large plumes of smoke , so that the audience proceeded to be evacuated from the Open Plaza.
A fire broke out this afternoon in the cinema located in the Open Plaza Angamos, in the district of Surquillo , forcing dozens of people who were watching movies in place to evacuate functions.According to the firemen, the incident that left no wound started in the confectionery area.
The head of the fire brigade South Lima, commander César García, explained that were sent to the mall about four units, including two pumpers, to quell the fire that started at 2 pm approximately room Surquilo .
“The fire started by a short circuit in the electric fryer located in the entrance to the movie theaters,” the spokesman for firefighters attending the emergency told Canal N.
A few minutes later , through social networks, administrators Cinemark Open Plaza Angamos, in Surquillo , they sent a statement to clarify that all security measures are abided by and that after the evacuation no injuries were reported.
“The company followed all the security protocols, evacuating the attendants of that place without reporting personal damages,” they said through the statement. However, several users reported that they just left the halls after the spectators themselves noticed the smoke coming out of the confectionery.
But of course, not everything will be advantages! Here you have the disadvantages we also have to take into account when purchasing one of these fryers.
Power consumption is remarkable higher than in the rest of fryers. This is because it takes more time to cook the food.
Generally, the food appears less crisp than the traditional way. This is something that we have to keep in mind when it comes to the appearance of the fried.
We also need to emphasize that its price is usually above that of a conventional fryer. Something that can be offset by the savings we mentioned above.
You can check the price and availability of these fryers in www.cocina-espanola.es/freidora-sin-aceite .
We accept the idea of beauty and recognize our extraordinary need to possess that which is beautiful. We are not satisfied with creating things that simply fulfill their function. These too must be beautiful, sometimes only beautiful.
There are gardens of many forms created many times only from this point of view, that of being beautiful. However, for many people the idea of gardening as art is still disconcerting or completely strange.
There are a number of landscape architects and landscape gardeners melbourne who over the years have inspired me and have served as “virtual mentors”, either for their projects, or for their ideas and dissemination work. C. Th. Sørensen was a great find, and certainly a captivating character. With him begins a series dedicated to landscape masters.
Carl Theodor Sørensen (1893-1979) is probably one of the greatest landscape architects of the 20th century and one of the first modernists in landscape architecture.
His works were characterized by the fusion of art, functionality and tradition (he was a great scholar of the history of gardens). But he emphasizes his way of transforming the agricultural and cultural landscape in architectonic works of art; And here is his great contribution to the modernist garden (and landscape).
If the design is strong, the design can survive and be transformed. Therefore, it is true that there may be something lasting in the changing landscape. This is the essence of beauty in a cultural landscape.
(C. Th. Sørensen, 1963)
His works despite the use of rigid geometric shapes (circles, squares, ovals, spirals and free forms) were great flexibility and functionality in which the man was always the source .
Sørensen always insisted that the gardens are a form of art , never forget the important social work that they have to offer. An art available and used by the public.
An example of garden art in its purest form is the Garden Musical, conceived in 1945 , and finally executed in 1956 in the Angli IV cultural industrial complex in Herning (Denmark), where Sørensen applied his knowledge, after years of studies The history of the garden design melbourne and its forms, created this sculptural garden, which still stands today.
The film is artifice. And the music is perhaps, of all genres, the best indicator of that device. In it, the characters are allowed to open their channel to dream reality singing, or celebrate a whole range of feelings intoning the melody that best emphasizes. It can serve as an excuse to inflame passions, to ooze evening promiscuity or serve social criticism. The music came with the sound and lived its golden age in the next decades, from which emerge some of the most amazing talents to the big screen. Gene Kelly , Fred Astaire , Judy Garland and Julie Andrews represent the summits of a cinema eventually, he would eventually be devalued and ostracized. From the 70, the majority public would demand other movies and music, with few exceptions, would fade to insignificance in the 80 and 90. The last decade marked a vague revival of interest in this, however, it has been an intermittent trend is far from offering the prospect of a genuine revival. Then we review the most significant and celebrated titles of a long tradition of music, a list that easily activated in several humming melodies and reader, attached to an irrepressible rhythm on the feet. All these movies are available on movie4k for free.
“Singin ‘ in the Rain” (Donen and Kelly, 1952). The tandem of Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly was one of the most brilliant and successful musical film. Since the late 40s and especially during the 50 under the Freed Unit at MGM -a division overseen by producer Arthur Freed and dedicated to this genre, director and actor collaborated on a series of films which “Singin ‘ in the rain” is perhaps the highest standard. A charismatic, jovial and impeccable jewel that contains the most famous musical number history: the character of Kelly love celebrating and exulting in the rain his infatuation. On the set, however, the actor had so much fun, since it had to carry the sick and feverish sequence. But his condition did not affect that was another of his great performances, one in a film that also had a great Donald O’Connor doing stunts and exploiting its comic gestures while singing Make ’em laugh or Debbie Reynolds joining the two for optimistic Good morning .
“Broadway Melodies” (Vincente Minnelli, 1953). Vincente Minnelli was undoubtedly one of the great architects of the golden years of the MGM musical. A year after “Singin ‘ in the Rain” “Broadway Melodies”, an adaptation of the musical that had premiered on Broadway in 1931 with the presence of Fred Astaire and his sister Adele premiered. More than 20 years later, Minnelli took that material and turned it into an extraordinary film that combined the Faust myth within the story of an actor in decline accepting a role in the musical that perhaps you back to fame. The critic and writer Carlos Losilla, in his book “The invention of modernity” noted the numberShine on your shoes like that could be one of the key scenes in the transition from classical to modern cinema, one of the signs of the self – consciousness of a part of Hollywood that was beginning to understand that everything began to change in some way. But apart from subsurface interpretations of Minnelli’s a wonder that perhaps has not enjoyed such popularity as others of their peers, but equally or more capable of reporting tons of happiness, with actors in a state of grace and a background footage excellent songs and choreography.
“West Side Story” (Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, 1961). “West Side Story” was born as a Broadway musical in the second half of the 50, written by the great Leonard Bernstein and lyrics of another essential tables,Stephen Sondheim . In the early 60s, producer, director and theater choreographer Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise, one of the most brilliant craftsmen in Hollywood, adapted it to film and became one of the egregious successes of the genre, winning 10 Academy Award of the Academy. This is a work still fascinating, a revisiting of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare set in New York working and street gangs, here represented in -norteamericanos autóctonos- Jets and Sharks portorriqueños- – immigrants.In between, the forbidden love between Natalie Wood and Richard Breymer , sublimated in the romantic encounter accompanying Tonight on the outside stairs of a building, but threatened towards the end of the film when the same song is reinterpreted by all the main cast to heat the final battle between the two. No less memorable is the musical number that provides America , intense debate sung in the Puerto Rican side and led by Rita Moreno on the advantages and disadvantages of Americanism.
“The Wizard of Oz” (Victor Fleming, 1939). Hito musical film, “The Wizard of Oz” was released after several versions of the script, serious doubts about the acceptance of fantastic between the public and a number of directors and collaborators who shaped this classic by which finally would be credited Victor Fleming. This adaptation to all Technicolor tale Frank Baum and WW Denslow would have an inevitable impact on popular culture and raise the figure of Judy Garland to Olympus of the genre, especially with its emotional, tender and hypnotic rendition of Somewhere over the rainbow , versioning post until exhaustion. But it is also the merits of the film Fleming are countless, from the same time it established a visual iconography warm and unsettling than any other adaptation has managed to replace final. And that, thanks among other things to that yellow brick road, the Scarecrow Ray Bogler , dancing the Tinman of Jack Haley , built by the Cowardly Lion Bert Lahr or the omnipresent Frank Morgan .
“Mary Poppins” (Robert Stevenson, 1964). The health of the musical cinema during the 60s begin to weaken, but two titles huge success as “Mary Poppins” and “My Fair Lady” ( George Cukor , 1964) both premiered the same year, they would offer resistance before the genre had just definitely overwhelmed by other proposals. The two also were closely linked to the name of Julie Andrews. The actress came from an established theatrical experience that was highlighted on stage with his role in “My Fair Lady”. When it comes to adapting the work to the big screen came, however, Jack Warner chose to Audrey Hepburn for paper and Andrews would eventually debuting in the middle as the film ‘s most famous nanny. “Mary Poppins” mixed live action and animation, integrated fabulous special effects and unfurled a repertoire of dangerously catchy songs, namely Chim Chim Cher-ee of Dick van Dyke , A spoonful of sugar as ideal for housework theme and twister was sung Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious .
” Gold Diggers of 1933″ (Mervyn LeRoy, 1933). If we look back at 30, one of the major names of the decade is to Busby Berkeley , choreographer Warner who designed and directed some of the most majestic of gender numbers. His imprint the marked sequences of major infrastructure and amazing geometries, many dancers diluted in kaleidoscopic forms often observed from the overhead shot. But also, prior to the establishment Hays Code censorship musical, he dared articulate wild and little hindrance pointedly social and political criticism. ” Gold Diggers of 1933″ -moralista Spanish translation of the original “Gold Diggers of 1933” – is one of the best examples of this. In the film directed by Mervyn LeRoy always effective, a group of choristers lived in their flesh the hardships of the Great Depression, at least until hunting for a husband with resources or a bumpy musical show ended in success materializing. His bite was twofold: to moral values- the time choristers, traditionally identified with light life, turned into materialistic heroines unabashedly style of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” ( Howard Hawks , 1953) – and policy Hoover -the impressive final number, administration Remember my forgotten men , it was a critical open to the march of veterans of World War I that took place in Washington DC one before- year. The year title apart from her sisters, speaking of a series of films dating back to 1923, when Warner launched a silent version of the musical “The gold diggers” who was playing on Broadway. To this followed “Gold Diggers of Broadway” (Roy Del Ruth, 1929) -of which only one part- is preserved, said “Gold Diggers of 1933” and subsequent “Gold Diggers of 1935” (Berkeley, 1935) , “Gold diggers of 1937” (Bacon and Berkeley, 1936) and “Gold diggers in Paris” ( Ray Enright , 1938), and conducted under the impositions of the Hays code.
“Sound of Music” (Wise, 1965). In its Top 10 best movies ever for the magazine Sight & Sound, the philosopher Slavoj Zizek argued that at the time your bet was for ten guilty pleasures. Among them was one in particular that he described as a great Nazi melodrama, which was none other than the beloved “Sound of Music”. Beyond the controversial readings that could give rise to the story of the Trapp family and their governess, a charming novice (Julie Andrews) fresh from the convent, the film was a new demonstration of the exquisite craft that showed Robert Wise in each job, and deployment of new skills for gender Andrews crowning a musical joy with a flowery hill in the most iconic scene.
“Meet Me in St. Louis” (Minnelli, 1944). One of the best titles of great Minnelli and one of those essential that accompany the Christmas night on television. “Meet Me in St. Louis” was pure candor, pastel colors and an angelic and love Judy Garland. This was proclaimed in which, alongsideHave yourself a merry little Christmas , was the most recognizable song of the film, the enthusiastic The trolley song in which his character sang in a trolley moving the absent object of his love. Few films have as much capacity as this to soften the heart of the most stoic viewer, in part because so warm and endearing characters like the little Margaret O’Brien or elder Harry Davenport ; but above all, for quite bright Garland, before which it was hard not to fall asleep. The Minnelli himself was seduced by the beauty of the actress, with which a year later would marry. A union, by the way, which arise another eminent figure of the musical as would Liza Minnelli .
“One day in New York” (Donen and Kelly, 1949). The origin of “A Day in New York” – “On the town” in its original title it is in “Fancy Free”, a ballet byJerome Robbins with music by Leonard Bernstein who triumphed in 1944 at the American Ballet Theatre. Hence, the work made the jump to Broadway, where it was directed by George Abbott and choreographed by Robbins himself. In 1949, it launched this film version would mark the debut behind the camera of Stanley Donen and retain some songs from Bernstein to incorporate other of Roger Edens . The film chronicled the adventures of three sailors – Frank Sinatra , Gene Kelly and Jules Munshin – who enjoyed a day of service to spend in New York, in search of adventure and girls. In the course of just 24 hours, still remains in the collective memory the arrival of the three protagonists to the Big Apple with the song New York, New York -this yes, Bernstein composed, although deserved to be featured as delicious as the numbers sharing Betty Garrett and Sinatra in a taxi,Come up to my place .
“Magnolia” (James Whale, 1936). Few stories in the old Hollywood there are as fascinating as that of James Whale, whose interiors were portrayed by Bill Condon on the estimable “Gods and Monsters” (1998) with the face of Ian McKellen. Whale only worked behind the scenes for a decade before leaving the cinema, but it was enough this time to be one of the executive arms of Howard Hughes in the ambitious “Hell’s Angels” (Hughes, Whale and Edmund Goulding, 1930) establish itself as a creator of two of the greatest hits of terror of Universal as “Dr. Frankenstein” (1931) and its sequel “the bride of Frankenstein” (1935), and also lead one of the best of the decade musicals. “Magnolia” whose original title is “Show Boat”, was based on a 1927 musical with music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II , in turn based on the novel by Edna Ferber published in 1926. Whale signed a loaded movie social readings on the banks of the Mississippi, a delicate and beautiful musical in which the always imposing presence was counted Hattie McDaniel and in which so emotional songs as quoted ol ‘man river , intoned by the deep voice of Paul Robeson or Can not help lovin ‘dat man , sung in chorus in the musical climax of the film. In short, a priceless gem that had a new version in 1951 with Ava Gardnerand Kathryn Grayson as protagonists.
“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (Howard Hawks, 1953). If we mentioned before the nerve to ” Gold Diggers of 1933″ in his carefree portrait of a female protagonists in search of a wealthy husband in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” that purpose acquires the status of vital objective, central to the characters played by Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell . No wonder the critic Jonathan Rosenbaum called the film “Potemkin capitalist” -meaning the Soviet classic “Battleship Potemkin” (Sergei M. Eisenstein, 1925) – Celebratory unprejudiced frivolity and desire for social climbing, punctuated with deliberately materialistic songs like Diamonds are a girl’s best friend .Again, it was the adaptation of a stage musical that had a few years before Anita Loos successfully released on his own novel, whose film adaptation was given by the teacher Howard Hawks.
“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” (Donen, 1954). Another Christmas television classics, this gem apparently naive and colorful took as its starting point the myth of the Rape of the Sabines to tell the story of seven rough brothers and primary seeking winning seven demure sisters. The music ofSaul Chaplin and Gene de Paul , accompanied by the lyrics of Johnny Mercer and choreography Michael Kidd gave much of the charisma and charm of a movie that are memorable scenes like the massive fight around the barn. In 1979, he had its corresponding version of the boards, which follow a series for CBS in 1982 and a Bollywood adaptation of the same year.
“42nd Street” (Bacon, 1933). One of the choreographic masterpieces of Busby Berkeley His first work for Warner, demisting the same year as the spectacular ” Gold Diggers of 1933″ -and that “footlights Parade” , another of his works insignia- and executed by the very efficient Lloyd Bacon, who came to replace Mervyn LeRoy when he had to withdraw from filming sick. It also marked the debut of his leading actress Ruby Keeler , which was thewife of pioneer Al Jolson , officially, the first voice that sang in films, in “The Jazz Singer” ( Alan Crosland , 1927) – and star of the genre the decade would be diluted after just a dozen jobs. “42nd Street” is perhaps the best standard of this monumental musical 30, culminated in the song that corresponds to the title with Keeler and Dick Powell delivered a mutant, magnificent and unforgettable number. Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes, would in 1980 his theatrical review, which is still represented in the British stage.
“Cabaret” (Bob Fosse, 1972). Daughter of the union between Vincente Minnelli and Judy Garland, the artistic talent that Liza Minnelli carried in the genes deployed him as ever in “Cabaret” perhaps the summit in the short filmography of Bob Fosse who performed the musical when he wasbeginning to be an endangered genre. This his great film developed in Nazi Berlin 1931, in which the Kit Kat Club and the performances of its star Sally Bowles (Minnelli) became the night shelter a reality grayer. Vaguely inspired by the eponymous Broadway musical of 1966, of Kander and Ebb , it resulted in a huge box office success and eight Academy Award of the Academy. Five years later, “New York, New York” ( Martin Scorsese , 1977) would be the other side of the coin for Minnelli, a significant failure that left more naked its interpretative shortcomings, but in which the actress and singer embroidering the celebérrimo title track, composed by Kander and Ebb own and sang it with melancholy emotional Carey Mulligan in “Shame” (Steve McQueen , 2011).
“A Star Is Born” (Cukor, 1954). Cukor was a prolific and sensitive filmmaker, SUV but with special talent for comedy, as he had demonstrated in “The Philadelphia Story” (1940) or “Adam’s Rib” (1949 ), among other. His main contribution to music, apart from the aforementioned “My Fair Lady” was the remake of the film of William A. Wellman, 1937, in which Judy Garland was a young talent discovered by a famous performer addicted to alcohol and interpreted by James Mason . Nearly three hours of intense and full of great performances, punctuated with melodrama songs Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin and music by Ray Heindorf . In 1976, Frank Pierson would direct a new version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson heading the cast, which will soon follow another update fromClint Eastwood , with Beyonce Knowles starring.
“Moulin Rouge” ( Baz Luhrmann , 2001). Controversially, passionate, sentimental, lysergic and thunderous. This is the third feature by Australian Baz Luhrmann a tremendous show moves to Paris early last century amphetamine rollbacks songs of Nirvana, which celebrates love with amash-up full of milestones of pop music, which makes Kylie Minogue in fairy of absinthe. The aesthetic decisions and the level of hysteria “Moulin Rouge” may be subject to debate, but what is certain is that we are faced with a dizzying free, able to find your own emotional epic in the chinks of his visual madness work. His pride and anachronistic soundtrack is largely theresponsibility of the mixer genius of Marius de Vries . His imagery excess would not be the same without the complicity of a completely devoted to the cause actors from a sweetened Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman to the hyperbolic side of Jim Broadbent and John Leguizamo .
“Grease” (Randal Kleiser, 1978). Resorted reference for costume parties, whose music is sued in verbenas and karaokes and whose passes on television are repeat offenders in afternoon sessions, “Grease” has become a musical milestone often more celebrated so it is not that their real intentions. And it is likely many and many of those who once toupee combed back or a blonde wig placed did not realize that, actually, the film Randal Kleiser was not so much a product of the time ready to be consumed from nostalgia, but a thug parody of that past time and obsolete values. It is not explained if not bad baba theme Beauty school dropout , who himself Frankie Avalon sings a rapturous Didi Conn , or that final blatant and deliberate so often criticized. “Grease” was based on a musical of 1971 Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs, and much of his triumphant leap to film some great was because John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John who showed extraordinary chemistry with their respective characters macarra background modosita sensitive and wild background.
“Carmen Jones” (Otto Preminger, 1954). Of the European directors whoemigrated to Hollywood, the Austro-Hungarian Otto Preminger was one of the most influential and one of the most interesting. Preminger signed indispensable films as “Angel Face” (1952), “The Man with the Golden Arm” (1955) or “Anatomy of a Murder” (1959) and also this unusual musical black that adapted the play by Oscar Hammerstein II, in turn adaptation of the novel “Carmen” by Prosper Merimee, who inspired the famous opera by Georges Bizet. “Carmen Jones” replaced the torero by the boxer and adapted the famous songs to put them at the service of its star Dorothy Dandridge , well accompanied in the cast by secondary Pearl Bailey , andHusky Miller , particularly splendid accompanying the rhythm of Beat Out Dat Rhythm on to Drum (Gypsy Song) or intoning vigorous Stan ‘Up an’ Fight (Toreador song).
” Top Hat” (Mark Sandrich, 1935). While we have mented the magnificent “Melodies of Broadway”, it is true that the film career of Fred Astaire is best summarized in works like “Crazy Rhythm” (Sandrich, 1937) or this ” topHat” sublimation of a modulated dance style from the virtuosity and elegance, from the smoothness of movements that seem to caress the music with exquisite delicacy. In her one of his most iconic sequences is located: those that are soft, beautiful Cheek to cheek dance well stuck toGinger Rogers , the same as both did mourn the character of Michael Clarke Duncan in “The Green Mile” ( Frank Darabont , 1999).
“An American in Paris” (Minnelli, 1951). Two years before “Broadway Melodies” and shortly after signing “Father’s Little Dividend ” (1951) -secuela of his celebrated “Father of the Bride” (1950) – Minnelli adapted to film the symphonic poem Georges Gershwin “An American in Paris”, again under the production of the Freed Unit Minnelli retold with Gene Kelly- and had worked with him on “the pirate” (1948). and he chose as a companion to the French Leslie Caron , which was his debut film. Caron did not miss his chance and embroidered role, running a seductive dance with a chair on a set of different ranges of pink, a proposal for artistic direction unusual which was awarded by the Academy with the Oscar, one of six that ended taking the tape including that of best film at the 1952 ceremony.
“Hair” (Milos Forman, 1979). Originally, “Hair” was an Off-Broadway musical written by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and Galt MacDermot music. Premiered in 1967, soon he became one of the stalwarts of the movement hippie , although its treatment of issues like drugs or sex led him no little controversy. Just over a decade later, the Czech director Milos Forman took the material and turned it into a musical that had lost some of its critical to the context of his birth power, but not a hint of charisma and vitality. Yet it is hard not to feel emotionally struck by the complaint on the hard end to ditch the fate of John Savage with Let the sunshine in , nor is itan option to forget the film version for the theme Aquarium or unbridled Hair baptising the proposal .
“Chicago” ( Rob Marshall , 2002). The career of Rob Marshall began with a television adaptation of “Annie” musical of 1977 on a small orphan who had already had its film version in 1982 of the hand of John Huston. It is no wonder, then, that his movie was to play the genre in a larger and more ambitious as it was “Chicago , ” adapted from the play by Maurine Dallas 1926 written by Watkins production. In it, a plethoric Richard Gere ,Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger were collecting their musical skills in a history of vaudeville dancers, lawyers and murders able to grab and dilute genres with remarkable skill. He triumphed in the Academy Award 2003, accumulating up to six statuettes and becoming the first musical since 1969 to proclaim himself -the best film last to get it had been “Oliver!” (Carol Reed, 1968) , and even “Cabaret” had galardón- done with this. Its success would make many drawn to Marshall as the possible successor to Bob Fosse and even talk of a possible bonanza of gender, something that has not been confirmed except for sporadic cases. Not that Marshall himself help realize any trend, which has since been more successful with other projects like “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005) and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (2011) with his remake musicado of “Fellini 8 1/2” ( Federico Fellini , 1964), “Nine” (2009).
“Dancer in the Dark” ( Lars von Trier , 2000). If we think Lars von Trier as the twisted genius and manipulator capable of malear genres and take the viewer to your basement, then “Dancer in the Dark” is one of his masterpieces, a musical-melodramón with echoes of Dogma and devastating conclusions in which it was passed Björk an ordeal. The film radically reinterpreted musical codes in the same way that he surrendered to them-chamber rises to conclude the narration. With it, the Danish stirred passions as ever among his admirers and detractors, even after being boosted with the Palme d’ Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2000.
Do not stop the music. While this is a significant selection of the best of the genre, we can not fail to rescue some of the forgotten or excluded from the preceding paragraphs. A longer list maybe if we would to include, for example, two other gems Minnelli such as “Brigadoon” (1954) and “Gigi”(1958), or other essential Stanley Donen as “Funny Face” (1957 ), with the duo Fred Astaire-Audrey Hepburn in the lead. No less important are trends as established in the 40 MGM around the water music with swimmer Esther Williams as a star, namely “Bathing Beauty “ ( George Sidney , 1944) or“Thrill of a Romance” ( Richard Thorpe , 1945), not to mention its direct competitors, the films that starred the Norwegian figure skater Sonja Heniefor Twentieth Century Fox.
They have been without mention such significant titles as “Yankee Doodle Dandy” ( Michael Curtiz , 1942), or James Cagney exploiting its musical side- and squeezed the other hand, in “Parade footlights” before- nearly a decade, “They and they “ ( Joseph L. Mankiewicz , 1955) or ” The king and I “ ( Walter Lang , 1956). Nor it can forget the condition of music who held most of the films that starred the Marx brothers , Chico and Harpo as virtuoso piano and harp, respectively. Among the following decades, also arenoteworthy for many reasons raids Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl (A funny girl)” ( William Wyler , 1968) and “Funny Lady” ( Herbert Ross , 1975); satiric “Producers” ( Mel Brooks , 1968); the phenomena of “Jesus Christ Superstar” ( Norman Jewison , 1973) and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” ( Jim Sharman , 1975); the two big musical with orphans, “Oliver!” and “Annie”; the eighties “Xanadu” ( Robert Greenwald , 1980),“Footloose” ( Ross , 1984) and “The Little Shop of Horrors” ( Frank Oz, 1986); the arid tribute to musical Herbert Ross 30 in “Pennies from heaven (Pennies from Heaven)” (1981); the transgendered “Victor Victoria?” (1982); two antics of John Waters as “Hairspray 60” (1988) and “Cry-Baby (The tear)” (1990); or, as in the 90s, the exhausting “Evita”( Alan Parker , 1996).
In recent years, the timid revival of the genre was promoted from the success of “Moulin Rouge” and “Chicago”, which was followed by others like“The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber” ( Joel Schumacher , 2004), Oscar – winning “Dreamgirls” ( Bill Condon , 2006), the remake of “Hairspray” ( Adam Shankman , 2007), the burtoniana“Sweeney Todd : the Demon barber of Fleet street” ( Tim Burton , 2007), the music of the Beatles ” Across the universe “ ( Julie Taymor , 2007) and verbenera ” Mamma mia! The film “ ( Phyllida Lloyd , 2008).Also, a work so alternative and unclassifiable as “Repo! The Genetic Opera “ ( Darren Lynn Bousman , 2008) or the celebrated Spanish contribution, ” The Other Side of the Bed “ ( Emilio Martinez Lazaro , 2002) continuation is by its sequel ” The 2 Sides of the Bed “ (Martinez Lazaro, 2005 ) -.
In addition, we should devote a report to the central part representing the Disney films, mostly peppered by musical numbers and built between worshiped compositions traditionally hoard Oscars® in the categories for sound and music bands. As examples, worth rescuing the outstanding “The Jungle Book” ( Wolfgang Reitherman , 1967), “The Aristocats”(Reitherman, 1970), “Robin Hood” (Reitherman, 1973), “The Little Mermaid” ( Ron Clements and John Musker , 1989), “beauty and the beast” ( Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise , 1991), “Aladdin” (Clements and Musker, 1992) and “the lion king” ( Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff , 1994). The tendency to include musical passages in the animated film is somewhat extended beyond the productions of the company, although in recent years the 3D animation has finished to minimize the number of songs, still present in films such as “Madagascar “ ( Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath , 2005) or the recent ” Brave (untamed) “ ( Mark Andrews andBrenda Chapman , 2012).
