Fiction, to Film, to Fantastic Music Friday: Last of the Mohicans
Because I really love both fiction and film, I have been batting around the idea of starting my own weekly topic called "Fiction, to Film, to Fantastic Music Friday". The premise is just to share my favorite books made into film, with amazing soundtracks to boot. There might even be times where it's just a great film and soundtrack. Either way, join in if you would like!
To kick things off, I wanted to share one of my favorites in this category, The Last of the Mohicans. I recently watched this movie again and wanted to go dig out the music (or pull it up on my iTunes list--much easier).
The thing that adds even more to the movie is the amazing score tied to it. If you've ever heard this soundtrack, it has probably stuck with you. Everything from the Main Theme, to Clannad's "I Will Find You", to the amazing "Promontory" are every bit as moving on their own as in the film. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. If you haven't heard it, check it out.
Here is a clip of "Promontory":
