ITM SE02_EP#010 The Rhythms of Life

 In Advice, Music, Podcast

Welcome to Episode 10 of In The Making.

In episode 2 of the new series join Gemma Milburn and Martin Lumsden as they continue a conversation that reaches the parts other podcasts wouldn’t go near – such as is there really such a thing as a coincidence, are we physically affected by vibrations, is Will Smith right to say that 99% of people don’t want it enough and do the best bits in songs happen by accident.

Also includes great Disney songs, The Beatles ruining everything, and how Gemma would like to own a Mini but doesn’t want to be a Giraffe.

During the episode you’ll hear us reference a few things and if you want to find out more you can use the links below… *

Firstly, an apology to Marianne Williamson for incorrectly attributing her quote to Maya Angelou noting that it is normally incorrectly attributed to Nelson Mandela.  Here it is in full…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Why Let it Go from Frozen is so musically impressive

By Dorian Lynskey writing in the Guardian.
One test of a truly great song is an ability to listen to it dozens of times without screaming. I’m not a musicologist (although this guy is), but anyone can understand why Let It Go is a bravura piece of musical storytelling: the nervous minor chords of the first verse, jumping to an emphatic major key with the line “Well now they know!”; the frantic, pulse-quickening syncopation of the bridge; the explosive leap of the chorus, mirrored in the animation’s rapid ascent; and the final imperious shrug of “The cold never bothered me anyway.”

Why Frozen’s Let It Go is more than a Disney hit

I also referred to the wonderful podcast series “Switched on Pop” which you can find on iTunes or at their own website here switchedonpop.com

And finally that awesome song from Hercules…
