Sweet Soundtrack.com — Find a song in a movie [♬]

The site works like Google, you simply enter in the name of a movie and it tells you the songs that featured in it. Here are two songs that I discovered that were once upon a time in my head but I never knew who the artists were, until today!!!

Cheb Khaled’s song is not on the original motion picture soundtrack to THE FIFTH ELEMENT, but it should have been. Hadn’t heard this in its entirety before — I love it!

Funny thing about Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King’s “Give It Up, that tune was so ingrained in my head when I first saw FRIGHT NIGHT that I tried capturing it in my own way, way back when. Totally forgot I made this, “Brilliant Tension“:

I have to admit, I am impressed with myself…Fingers crossed no one sues :p

Speaking of fingers; on route to dropping a friend off last Wednesday, we made a stop at the Botany Night-Market for a light bite to eat. We also scoured through a mountain of random jewelry that would make even Smaug envious, where I somehow managed to get a plastic Hello Kitty ring stuck on my pinky (I couldn’t make this ironic shit up), after Jasmine helped free me, I came across this symbol which I could have sworn I had seen somewhere before. I took a photo of it hoping I’d maybe come across where I recognized it from, if at all:

As it turns out, there it is in the YouTube picture above for “Alech Taadi”. It’s called the HAMSA HAND (Arabic) or hamesh hand (Hebrew) which is an old and still popular apotropaic amulet for magical protection from the envious or evil eye. The words hamsa and hamesh mean “five” and refer to the digits on the hand. It’s a good symbol.

For things you can’t quite figure out on your own, search engines are a good way to go.
