MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The soundtrack to The Book Thief by John Williams

 

 

 

THE BOOK THIEF: We’ve been playing this soundtrack a LOT at Chez Luscious – it’s simply divine. Thanks to John Williams for composing such a beautiful score.

Do make sure you read the book by Markus Zusak and see the film, directed by Brian Percival and starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nélisse. It’s very touching.

Why not play this in the background as you scroll through the rest of the Luscious website?

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The Holiday soundtrack – Hans Zimmer – Maestro

The Holiday - film and soundtrack

We play music from a lot of soundtracks in our home – Mr Luscious is very savvy at pulling out the best tracks from the most popular to the most obscure films.

This opening track from the 2006 film The Holiday starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black is always a winner with me: it stars slowly and develops into a bubbling, happy point which never fails to inspire me…
