Sorry I havent been able to keep this post consistent, been busy with work and also making many changes to this site. But here's something I realized the other day, Halloween music would pointless to not have this theme in it; and it's one we have all heard and scene from one particular movie. Its none other than Night on Bald Mountain by Modest Mussorgsky. Its one of those songs that even when we hear it, we just know what goes through our mind: A mountain inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night with a little town that gets haunted by ghosts and demons. Oh, did I forget to mention that a big guy with horns (maybe the devil) sits on the mountain and has them dance and do paganistic rituals. This song truly represents this time of year. Of course following this song, is none other than a superb version of Ave Maria. One known fact about the scenes in this movie is that if you look closely, you can see certain images that we inspired by impressionist Salvador Dali. In fact, Dali and Walt Disney were such good friends, they originally wanted to do a "Fantasia" short for a future Fantasia installment. The idea was later put to realization with the recently completed Destino, showcasing many of Dali's well known caricatures along with a moving song. So here at the bottom, for your viewing pleasure, is Night On Bald Mountain from the Disney film Fantasia, released in 1941. Enjoy.
