Song of the Day - A.R. Rahman & M.I.A. - O...Saya

Daily song of the day! Enjoy!! :)

There was a bulls-eye mention in Entertainment Weeky about the song accompanying the opening scene of Slumdog Millionaire being infectious and perfectly fitting the mood of the movie and setting you up for what you were about to watch. I remembered that and wondered how one song could acheive all of that so quickly and easily at the start of a film. When I sat in the theater to watch it, that opening scene of the boys running through the streets of India while this song played absolutely conveyed exactly what the article said. And to this day, I can't hear this song without my toes tapping, my heart pumping and my spirits raised simply because I associate it with what Slumdog Millionaire was all about. I loves it!

Joining the year-end Fandom meme

1. Your main fandom of the year: The Vampire Diaries. Not only is it my fandom of the year, this may turn out to be my fandom of my lifetime. I have NEVER even remotely loved a show this much before. A couple on a show? Absolutely, but the entire show itself? Never, not at all, and I've adored shows in the past, but this show ... gah, it owns my soul!

2. Your favorite Film this year: Toy Story 3. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think about life and growing up, my past, present and future. Loved it.

3. Your favorite Book read this year: I don't care, I really don't. Julia Quinn's The Lost Duke of Wyndom. Yes, it's an historical romance novel and I don't care. It was WONDERFUL! Great, original characters, no stupid miscommunications and misinformation, good plotting, fantastic romance. I LOVED IT! I still maintain how much I loved that book, but yeah, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins wins this handily now.

4. Your favorite Album or Song this year: Album - Eminem's "Recovery." There were a few songs I didn't love, but so many more that were incredibly powerful. Song - "Enchanted" by Taylor Swift. I find it one of the most lushly romantic songs I've ever heard. I can't explain it, but I adore it so. It's just ... ahhh! Glorious. I love it so!
