New Alice book due

Postby alicespiral » Fri Jan 07, 2005 3:30 pm

No one ever did a book about the music of Alice In Wonderland so I did one which will eventually be available as a CD ROM and created on Microsoft Word..
It takes in everything from the music for the first stage adaptions through to the movies and covers all points in between from music inspired by.or use of Alice imagery
At the moment I'm just adding to it .
Theres a lot of album sleeves and sheet music shown as quite large files.
The main problem about using Word is that every time you add a picture everything moves and you have to shrink the picture to place somewhere else.
Should be around 10 pages when its finished

have you ever thought of using music from "the Doors" to corespond to it?
Break on Through
Crystal Ship
People are Strange
Strange Days

i was in a show that used them and it worked out really well.
just a thought!

Can't see any connection here whereas many psychedelic bands of the 60s DID have from the Jefferson Airplane to the Looking Glass
The closest music to "correspond" with Alice is that of Virginia Astley in the 80s

well if you listed to the songs instead of just glancing at the title maybe you would. i never said that the songs completly splelled the whole story out, i said they made a good soundtrack.

AIW:-.

you wouldnt by any chance be related to virginia astly would you? slightly obvious because of the enormas bias

I know a few songs with Alice in Wonsderland mentiond. Somethign Corporate has a lyric on the song "Watch the Sky"

"This room's too small, it's only getting smaller
I'm against the wall, I'm slowly getting taller here in Wonderland.
This guilt feels so familiar and I'm home."

Its on the UK version of North. Another lyric featured lyric is from their song "Walking By," from their audiobox ep.

The chorus is "So why do you leave these stories unfinished,
my Cheshire cat doorstop with tears in her eyes?
Why do you look when you've already found it?
What did you find that could leave you walking by?"

I also know Benji Madden from Good Charlotte has an Alice tattoo.

i once saw a music video clip featuring Alice & co. it was very good. it was 80s or 90s, so it might be hard to find nowadays though... i cant remember the song... time for some research!
