The latest  film directed by Tim Burton was released in France yesterday.

The song "New World Coming" (from "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" trailer) :

Daniel Radcliffe -and Harry Potter- have grown up ! The actor sings a rap song and ... it's fast !!

This song evokes Atlas, one of the Titans from the Greek mythology.

Coldplay wrote it for the "Hunger Games : Catch Fire" film soundtrack.

The lyrics video makes many allusions to space phenomena, such as star trails and mythological constellations.

BAC >> I hope you liked the song... and even if you didn't, keep in mind that the lyrics may be related to  "Myths & Heroes" English concept.

"You'll be loved" 

This  song is  not  exactly  the  usual  "sha-la-la-la-laaa, I love you so much !"  classic  ;o) 

And yet, though its  tune and some of its stills may look harsh, its chorus message is rather optimistic ! The animation is well-made and the whole  clip is rather unusual, that's also why I like it ! What about you ? Whether you like it or not, let me know in your comments...

In this song, the singer enumerates things the character can do to show the different roles he plays in his life... and how he rises  -and falls...  Listen attentively to the song and make a list of the things the character "can" do. You may also note them down, and send me (1) your list so that... I can correct it :o)


Some of the clip pictures are quite striking. They are not gratuitous though, for these illustrations intend to make the viewers react !

The song "This is Halloween" is taken from

   "The night before Christmas"

a fantasy film produced and co-written by Tim Burton.

"Hi life"

I like the animation film that features the song as much as "Hi Life" itself. It's been inserted here thinking of all the students who have both studied and struggled to defend their opinions, especially before the holidays... you surely deserve a little rest and poetry ;o)

Last year, I put "Like a Hobo" clip on the blog :

actually it's the clip graphism that I liked most...

though I like Winston's music as well.

 

The clip below shows him singing "In your Hands" :

The lyrics, the tune, the rythm and also the scene directed like a short film... I like them all :o)
