A musical PSA

Last night, we were all struck by a beautiful piece of music on the soundtrack of "The Hunger." lidocafe guessed Chopin, which it is not, and I _think_ may have also guessed Schubert, which it is.

For the delectation of all on my flist, and the enlightenment of those in the group last night, here it is:





Oh, and marri - the Japanese actor I was talking about was Ryiuchi Sakamoto. Much better known as a composer than as an actor, and not as good looking as I remember, or at least not any more.

As soon as you said "The Hunger", that music started playing in my head.

My eyes popped when I saw Ryuichi's name in the body of your post. I used to have such a little schoolgirl crush on him (okay, I confess...I still sort of do...20 years later). Thought he was the epitomy of gorgeousness and loved his music, especially the pieces with David Sylvian. Nice to hear that someone else knows who he is! I have not seen him in many many years.

GASP - - you've just prompted me to do an image search and what have found might just keep me awake tonight. Not the same person! Then again, neither am I. I cannot throw words!

Oh, I know exactly how you feel - I had a terrible crush on him after seeing Merry Christmas Mr Laurence! But if you look at some of the clips on YouTube, you can see how beautiful he was. Now - yes, he looks completely different. But it is a few years later :)

Yes, remember being thrilled when "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence" came about so I could actually SEE Ryu "moving about" on the screen rather than just in still shots from magazines. Btw, that was also a composition he collaborated with David Sylvian on (the tune, that is, not the film).

I'll have to check out some youtube clips soon when I get some more spare time. I'll brace myself. ha!
