Repost - Guess Why? - Oscar Winners Sing Just For You, Vol. 1



This is also another post dedicated to Hans; I know he tapes the Oscars every year, so he (and hopefully somebody else out there) might enjoy this compilation I made up a long time ago.

Admit it, haven't you always wanted to hear Bette Davis sing a Buffy Sainte-Marie song? How about Angelina Jolie singing Petula Clark?

Track List:

01 - Susan Hayward - When The Red, Red Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along
02 - Sophia Loren - Bing, Bang, Bong
03 - Vanessa Redgrave (& Chorus) - Lusty Month of May
04 - Patty Duke - Funny Little Butterflies
05 - Audrey Hepburn - How Long Has This Been Going On?
06 - Julia Roberts - All My Life
07 - Bette Davis - Until It's Time For You To Go
08 - Kim Basinger - Love Is The Thing
09 - Grace Kelly & Bing Crosby - True Love
10 - Goldie Hawn - I'm Through With Love

Oscar Winners Sing Just For You, Vol. 1


Note: I realized after I zipped the files that the text file that contains the track list is missing the line that says '06 - Julia Roberts - All My Life'.

The files also contain a jwl file I included; it's meant to be used with the Adaptec Jewel Case Creator for creating a cover. I don't know if it's transferable to other software. The covers I made are pretty primitive, but I included them anyway.


Volume 1 is devoted to the women. Volume 2 (which probably won't be finished for a long time) is devoted to the men. I'm closer to finishing Volume 3 than I am Volume 2, so maybe that one'll go up someday. Volume 4 is supposed to be devoted to the behind-the-scenes people (directors, writers, etc.), but I don't have nearly enough so if anybody has any additions, I'd be grateful. I've already got ones like Clint Eastwood, Orson Welles, Billy Bob Thornton, Matt Damon, etc., but if you've got anybody else, please let me know.

And if you were wondering why I put some of the ones I did on Volume 1, it's because they were a little more listenable. Volume 5, where a lot of the leftovers ended up, doesn't flow as well as Volume 1. And I didn't mean to put so much Sophia Loren on there, but she recorded so much that I had to spread it out a little over the volumes.


Notes on the compilation:

#01: A rousing way to start the compilation.
#03-#05: Three songs about change and young women whose thoughts turn lightly to love (and sex).
#05 & #06: What's more natural than to follow the question, 'How Long Has This Been Going On?' with the answer, 'All My Life'? But the actual reason I paired these songs was because their singing styles seem kind of similar (although Julia Roberts is a little more off-key).
#12: This one really is mostly Winona Ryder, but you can sort of hear Angelina Jolie in there.
#12-#16: Some upbeat and happy-go-lucky duets.
#14: No, it's not the theme to the TV show, but wouldn't that be amazing if it was?
#14 & #15: Two ironic songs about wanting to be something that you're not (although I'm sure some people outside the United States think that being an Americano and being a millionaire are one in the same).
#20 & #21: Two defiant songs about love gone wrong.
#22: A rousing way to end the compilation.

Ha! I see what I was doing wrong- the password is different. Sorry!
 
Hi Sallie!

I'm glad it was something simple. I was afraid maybe I screwed up the file! :))

It's a pretty old post when the password used to be different. Sorry for the mix-up! :)
 
Impossible to download from megaupload, slots always occupied and is not available on filesend, could you repost it? Thanks!
 
I wish not approve on it. I assume nice post. Particularly the title attracted me to review the whole story.
 
Amiable fill someone in on and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Gratefulness you as your information.
 
Gaming has truly become a hobby for anyone with interests that run the full gamut. Online Games are a great way to just have some fun and relax once in awhile. The following paragraphs have some really good ideas regarding video games, so pay attention!

Although playing computer games is a very fun hobby, it shouldn't be your whole life. Find other hobbies to participate in. Too much time spent on online games can be unhealthy. You have to make sure you do other hobbies and activities too. Addiction to online games is a disease which affects many today.

Some gaming titles are geared towards education. Consider these educational titles for children, and avoid those with questionable content. Do some online research for game reviews from other parents. This is a way that you can find games not only appropriate for your children, but even fun and educational for them too!

Limit cheat codes for games requiring skill to play. This is something that you will want to avoid, as it defeats the purpose of the game itself. Some cheats can ruin your whole game but sports related codes are the exception - they enhance the experience.

Copy online video tutorials precisely. You have to follow every step they take verbatim. To see all the details on the screenshots, zoom in and view at full-screen.

When you get stuck in a game, you can always look for a cheat code to help you get past the obstacle. There are fans all over who may have gotten stuck at the point you are on and many of them have probably shared the way to finish.

Get up frequently as you play a game. If you do not take breaks, your body will remain stuck in the same position. Additionally, if you sit immobile for long periods of times, you will get cramps and perhaps even blood clots. Your body will thank you for your efforts.

If you have children, ensure that you're limiting the amount of video game play time your children have. Try not to let your kids play for over two hours every day since it can rearrange their priorities and strain their hands and eyes.

Rather than spending money on a new console, consider playing your favorite games on your computer. Many games, especially ones that have been out for a while, are avaiable to be played free online. This allows you game play at a much lower price.

Buying a new game is tougher than you may think. You might waste a lot of money on a game you end up hating. Read game reviews before making a purchase.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

You can enjoy video games just for fun, or you can get a world of education and enrichment from them. Hopefully you have learned all you need to know about online games from this article.
