John Powell, You Simply Make My Heart Sing

So I watched the new Horton Hears a Who movie (with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell) and it was pretty cute, but what really got my attention was the score. Man it was gorgeous. So of course after watching the movie the first thing I did was go look up the composer and when I discovered it was John Powell I sorta went "EEEE!!!" and got all excited. Gosh I love John Powell's music sosososososossosooooooo much. Gosh I still can't get over how amazing his composition was in the movie. Here's the scene that simply makes me get happy goosebumps. I bet you can't guess which part is my favorite :D

Other movies that John Powell composed for that I'm sure most of us are familiar with: The Bourne Trilogy, Chicken Run, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Happy Feet, PS: I Love You, Kung Fu Panda, and a lot more! My goodness I love this man. Everything that he composes simply ends up making my heart just beat fast and I get so caught up in the moment and then I listen to his stuff over and over until I finally have my fill for that day, meaning I'll definitely listen to it again another day! And I'm a big day dreamer and listening to this certain piece of music really made me want to animate more and more and more, but I've got commission to work on and a giant drawing that needs to be done for a church family before I head back to school. But aaaahhhh John Powell. Can I take you home?

Sweeeet. Never saw that movie, but I'm glad you enjoyed it! The little balls on the ladder were cool, did that happen to be your favorite part? lol (I think this is my fastest response ever!)

Good guess! But it's actually the part where Jojo opens the big door window thing and the horns come in proudly and majestically. Ha, I'm such a nerd :P
