HELP! What soundtrack is this?!?!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 5, 2015, 2:49 PM
  • Listening to: Thomas Bergensen ~ Empire of Angels
  • Reading: Pacific Rim fanfics
  • Watching: The Musketeers
  • Playing: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
  • Drinking: Teeeaaaaa



Okay, this is driving me crazy! I just found the song mado kara mieru and part of the melody VERY strongly reminds me of a movie or series soundtrack but I cannot for the live of me remember what it is! ;_;  HALP! I cannot sleep until I've figured this out!  

The part I mean is right at the start of this, about 10 seconds in!

This is very similar to Meet Joe Black soundtrack [Thomas Newman - Whisper of a thrill] :)

Hi there, I was listening to a Youtube playlist at work today and this song came up, that little clarinet (or whatever) part started up and I was like wait, I know that. What the hell is that? I googled for anything about it and found your post, but it looks like no one identified it yet. :(

I kept thinking "Superman" when hearing it and trying to figure it out. Wtf superman? I didn't remember anything from any of those movies' soundtracks...So maybe it's just superhero in general, that sounds right!. It's definitely not recent, it's something from quite a while ago. And I seem to recall it being part of a big sacrifice moment, someone didn't want the guy to "go".

First good strong thought was Quigley Down Under, but no that soundtrack had a focus on a deep instrument like an oboe. Maybe Conan the Barbarian? That soundtrack is by the same composer! But no that is too old, it was newer than that. Then I thought Legends of the Fall or Last of the Mohicans? But no, haven't really listened much to the Legends soundtrack and don't recall the main theme, and Mohicans had a very distinctive fiddle leitmotiff through the whole movie

BUT WAIT! The main character in Last of the Mohicans had a lot of hair, and was running through the woods a lot, with muskets! Who else did that, in olden times with muskets? And who fits the superhero thing that's stuck in my head?! And had a big end-of-the-movie sacrificial moment where this music was playing!

It's the "Logan and Rogue" theme, from the original X-men movie:

Sorry for the rambling and this is a couple-years-old post so you're probably not going to see this, but this was super-exciting for me. It was a slow day I guess. Anyway, hope this helps someone else who randomly comes along looking to match this song up with where else they've heard it before.

This is very similar to Memoirs of a Geisha soundtrack. Perhaps that's what you've been looking for. :)

You may be recognizing the cord progression- this melody does seem familiar to me too. Not sure where I heard something similar unfortunately.

Yeah, it seems to me now that it reminds me both of the soundtrack of Van Helsing as well as PotC 3, actually.

Ok, i've created an account just to help in this matter. It took me two days and some desperation. Is not the very same melody, but it resembles a lot and it is, for sure, the one I remembered.

Ahhh, das kommt mir von der Art her auch bekannt vor... dann wiederum ist's wahrscheinlich einfach nur die Wahl der Instrumente, etc.

Ich musste zuerst an Drachenzähmen leicht gemacht denken, einige Lieder auf dem Soundtrack klingen teilweise ähnlich.

Den HTTYD soundtrack kenn ich recht gut, da wäre ich drauf gekommen... Es ist halt einfach nur dieses kleine Stück Melodie, nicht das ganze Lied, was diese Erinnerung weckt. Irgendwann komm ich drauf...

Not sure if someone already said this. I believe "Mado Kara Mieru" is a song on an album called "Calling all dawns" by Christopher Tin. (:

EDIT: I think I got your question wrong XDDDDD so nevermind. *FAILS*

as with what some other people, this sounds like some Studio Ghibli type-stuff.

This may be completely unrelated, but I came across someone once, who had used this song for an AMV of Tekkon kinkreet.
That's how I even recognized the song in the first place.

It has that vibe probably partly because it's based on a japanese haiku x3 But I just mean that little melody at the start... And I'm pretty sure now it wasn't anything animated. But thank you!

Ehm... I think some of the Tarzan instrumentals had a similar vibe, if that's the sort of thing you're looking for? Because the melody isn't similar at all, just the "feel" of it.

Not enough brain to go on the hunt right now though and really think about it. x.x

I was never a huge fan of Tarzan, so I doubt it would feel THIS nostalgic. But thank you for your input ^^

It's a beautiful piece of music, but I certainly can't recall any films that spring to mind I'm afraid... There are elements that I've before like the beating drums and the trumpets, and even the little woodwindy bit at the start. I can only recognise seperate elements, not a general melody >___>

Drink more teeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaa! That'll help!

That's what I mean though, a very specific seperate element of this (the oboe part starting at 10sec) reminds me of something else, not the whole track!
