Songs of Desire

Last night I realized that nearly all Disney musical movies have a song of desire in them. These songs appear early in the movie and paint the desires of our hero(in). You know where the protagonist comes from, what they are struggling with and what they desire. The whole movie focuses on trying to attain that desire. And sometimes they figure out that what they truly want is actually something totally different. Or that they should take a different approach in getting it.

It’s a good mechanism for showing character development. It’s also a very easy way. Disney movies are aimed at a young audience, so that makes sense. But it’s something you can learn from when you’re working with stories. It’s important to know early on what’s going on in the protagonist’s life, what their obstacles are and what they want.

I made a quick playlist on Spotify for this collection of Disney songs. I don’t know if I have all of them, but I know most of them are in there. If you think there’s one that needs to be on the list, let me know in the comments below.

Music Monday – Welcome to Planet Urf

Urf is the April Fools mascot of Riot. Last week the game mode Ultra Rapid Fire (U.R.F.) was playable again and the patch introduced this piece as the launcher background + music. I think their latest music releases are awesome, but this song isn’t half as strong as the last EP. Maybe because it’s only the launcher music and it’s supposed to sound good on a loop. I don’t know. It does fit the overall theme of League Music.

Music Monday – DJ Sona – Kinect

Music Monday – A game themed song every Monday I already dropped this one on Twitter and people thought it was a good idea. I don’t think there are enough people promoting the awesome sounds of games and my growing game OST map only shows that more developers are willing to give us access to just their songs. Expect awesomeness, but if you have suggestions, please let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

This is one of the songs Riot Games made for the new Ultimate Skin, DJ Sona. She actually has her own soundtrack which she plays for her team mates. The skin isn’t out yet, but I’m going to buy it. I love Sona, and this really is a great idea. She can switch forms and has a different song for each form. Team mates can opt in to listen to her songs or opt out if they want to listen to their own music. /toggle will let you change her form.

I’m not a big fan of dance music, but lately I’m listening to some light dubstep while gaming, because it’s relaxing. I thing DJ Sona’s songs will fit perfectly in that playlist, although they’re slightly more aggressive. All three songs have their own still. This one, Kinect, fits very well in the dance-genre, Concussive (DJ Sona’s red skin) is more on-beat. It reminds me of SSX3’s soundtrack, which I think still one of the best. Ethereal (DJ Sona’s blue/purple skin) is very mellow and the most relaxing of the three.

I honestly think that Riot is doing a great job in producing high quality music for League of Legends and for the lore. I mean, Pentakill is one of my favorite albums and The Curse of the Sad Mummy is still on repeat.

The Curse of the Sad Mummy

Riot has released a new EP with 15 songs of League of Legends. This is one of the new theme songs for a champion. The themes for Nami, Jinx, Quinn, Braum, Rumble, Lulu and Shaco and Veigar are also there.
