And here is Issue No. 11 of The Beautiful Project!:
We all waited for it right before the show. It was one of the highlights and best parts of the show, like the opening of a certain movie we all know and love, set in space. And then it started and the exhilaration started, and you couldn’t help but bounce to the music. Whether you saw the show in the 80’s or not, you’ve got to love – the Exalted DALLAS Music Opener.
The Dallas TV show is one of the most famous in television history. It’s opening music, with it’s gorgeous, ecstatic sound and exciting beat, expresses the grandeur of human existence, like the Falcon Crest music does, from Issue No. 1. And then there comes the images – the images in the opener shows what makes a life expressed by the music possible – men who use their minds, work and live, and have fun in living, and it’s outcome, the industrialized city of Dallas, the wealth created by productivity, the beautiful life made possible by men who work and farm, raising cattle or farming produce, and who responsibly produce sources of energy like oil that power the lights on your ceiling and the electricity in the computer you are reading this on, and the machines that produce the wheat in the bread you ate with breakfast! A world of skyscrapers, a world of wealth, and a world that is essentially free from pain. The music expresses the happiness that is possible to all of us when we live at our full potential, and the reward of doing it, ecstaticness, joy, happiness, pride, exaltation; a life that is beautiful.
And then the images of the principal actors; beautiful people doing remarkable things, in beautiful places and luxury, in business and life (except for J.R. & those other bad guys on the show!). I, for one, grew up with a crush on Victoria Principal, who played Pam. And the girls had crushes on Patrick Duffy.
The climactic shot of the family mansion at the end is particularly ecstatic.
It is one of the best sounds you will ever hear!
Enjoy! The Exalted DALLAS Music Opener:
I couldn’t find a good CD recording of it on Amazon, or a download on iTunes, yet – all the recordings I found were adapted for other instruments than are heard here (the wrong instruments! :}).
Let me know what you think of the Dallas Music Opener!
And one last big thank you! I give special thanks to Adelina Weiner for her announcement and what she did for me and the project on her beautiful jewelry blog http://sicsiclasic.wordpress.com/. Check hers out. Beautiful.
