Soundtrack from the Film More (US original title: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from the film More) is the first full-length soundtrack album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 27 July 1969. The film More was made in Luxembourg in 1969 and was directed by Barbet Schroeder. In it, two songs can be heard that were not included on the album: “Seabirds”, and “Hollywood”.

Since 1995, the new edition changed the title to just Music from the Film More (US title: Music from the Motion Picture More). This was the last of three Pink Floyd albums to be released in the United States by the Tower Records division of Capitol Records. The 1973 US re-issue was released on Harvest Records. Although the CD edition restores the original United Kingdom title in all countries, it is represented differently on the spine (Music from the Film More) and label More.

More contains some acoustic folk ballads, a genre that appeared sparsely on later works. It also contains some of the band’s “heaviest” recordings such as “The Nile Song” and “Ibiza Bar”, as well as several instrumental tracks, featuring their experimental and avant-garde approach.

This is Pink Floyd’s first full album without founding member Syd Barrett, who was ousted from the group in early 1968 during the recording of their previous album, A Saucerful of Secrets. It is one of the two Pink Floyd albums to feature David Gilmour as the sole lead vocalist, the other being 1987’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason and it is also the first album to be produced by Pink Floyd without assistance from Norman Smith. It was recorded at Pye Studios, Marble Arch, London and engineered by Brian Humphries.[6] More reached #9 in the UK and—upon re-release in 1973—#153 in the US. In 1987, the album was re-released on CD. A digitally remastered CD was released in 1995 in the UK and 1996 in the US.

Nightwish – "Storytime". Finnish symphonic metal band makes film soundtrack

Nightwish live in Melbourne, Australia, on January 30, 2008

Nightwish is a Finnish symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. Formed in 1996 by songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and former vocalist Tarja Turunen, Nightwish’s current line-up has five members, although Tarja has been replaced by Anette Olzon and the original bassist, Sami Vänskä, has been replaced by Marco Hietala, who also took over the male vocalist part; previously male vocal-parts were done by Tuomas or guest singers.[4]

Although Nightwish has been prominent in their home country since the release of their first single, “The Carpenter” (1997) and debut album Angels Fall First, they did not achieve worldwide fame until the release of the albums Oceanborn, Wishmaster and Century Child, which were released in 1998, 2000 and 2002 respectively. Their 2004 album, Once, which has sold more than 1 million copies,[5] led to the broadcast of Nightwish video clips on MTV in the United States and inclusion of their music in US movie soundtracks. Their biggest US hit single, “Wish I Had an Angel” (2004), made it onto three US film soundtracks as a means to promote their North American tour.[6][7] The band produced three more singles and two music videos for the album, as well as “Sleeping Sun”, from the 2005 “best of” compilation album, Highest Hopes, prior to vocalist Tarja Turunen’s dismissal.[6]

In May 2007, former Alyson Avenue frontwoman, Anette Olzon, was revealed as Tarja Turunen’s replacement,[8] and in the autumn, the band released a new album, Dark Passion Play, which has sold almost 2 million copies, with their big single, “Amaranth“, being released one month before.[9] The supporting tour started on October 6, 2007 and ended on September 19, 2009.[10][11] A new E.P./live album, Made in Hong Kong (And in Various Other Places), was released in March 2009 as a MCD/DVD, and a seventh studio album, titled Imaginaerum, was released on November 30, 2011 in Finland, and December 2, 2011 in the rest of Europe.[12][5]

Nightwish is the third-best-selling band and the third-best-selling musical entity in Finland with sales of over 900,000 certified copies.[13][14][15][16][17] The group is also the most successful Finnish band abroad with more than 8 million records sold worldwide, and having collected over 60 gold and platinum awards.[5]

The artist, interesting soundtrack for a "silent movie", won Best Original Score on Golden Globes.

The Artist is a 2011 French romantic comedy drama in the style of a black-and-white silent film. The film was written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius and stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. The story takes place in Hollywood, between 1927 and 1932, and focuses on the relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress, as silent cinema falls out of fashion and is replaced by the “talkies”.

The Artist received near-universal acclaim from critics and won many accolades. Dujardin won the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where the film premiered. The film was nominated for six Golden Globes, the most of any 2011 film, and won three; Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Original Score, and Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Dujardin. In January 2012 the film was nominated for twelve BAFTAs, also the most of any film from 2011, and won seven, the most wins of the night, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Hazanavicius, and Best Actor for Dujardin.

It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won five, including Best Picture, Best Director for Hazanavicius, and Best Actor for Dujardin, who was the first French actor ever to win. It was the first French film to ever win Best Picture, the first mainly silent film to win since 1927’s Wings (the first recipient of the Best Picture Award, in 1929), the first film presented in the 4:3 aspect ratio to win since 1955’s Marty, the first black-and-white film to win since 1993’s Schindler’s List, and the first non-R-rated film to win since 2004’s Million Dollar Baby.

In France, it was nominated for ten César Awards, winning six, including Best Film, Best Director for Hazanavicius and Best Actress for Bejo. The Artist became the most awarded French film in history.
