After posting a link to the "9" Trailer everywhere I could (this blog, my Facebook, my MySpace, etc) people have been asking me what those songs are in the trailer. I was a bit curious myself because I honestly didn't recognize the songs, so I considered asking Shane, but I decided to try out the iPhone apps that identify songs played into the mic.
I already had both of the iPhone apps available, Shazam and Midomi so I decided to try Shazam first, because I'd already tested out Midomi and I'd recently seen Shazam in an iPhone commercial. I tried 3 times but Shazam failed to identify the ambient music at the beginning of the trailer, possibly because there was only 3 long sustained notes before Martin Landau's narration starts (I made sure to stop short of the narration since it's obviously not part of the original song). Shazam said that the song was "unrecognized" on the first 2 attempts and on the 3rd try it misidentified the song as "Ich Bin Nich' Ich" by Tokio Hotel (horrible song btw).
Shazam had no trouble recognizing the thrashing metals guitars from the action part at the middle of the trailer, nor the classical guitar at the end of the trailer, and it correctly identified both bits of music as the same song, "Welcome Home" by Coheed and Cambria.
I still wanted to know what the ambient song was at the beginning of the trailer so I gave Midomi a try. I'd used Midomi several times before to identify songs that were in my head because Midomi can also recognize songs that are sung or hummed (Shazam only works with original recordings played into the mic). Midomi not only recognized "Welcome Home" but it also correctly identified the ambient song on the first try as "The Captain" by The Knife.
So there you have it, the songs in the "9" trailer are:
It's funny cuz when I first saw the trailer at Shane's place, I told him I honestly thought the music was really cheesy. But after watching it many times, I have to admit that the music is very fitting for the energy of the trailer. It builds an excitement that will hopefully sustain until the movie is released on 9/9/09 (also a tad cheesy and yet so perfectly fitting). Seriously, I'm so src="http://blog.joshuajmorgan.com/rsc/smilies/icon_censored.gif" title=">:XX" alt=">:XX" class="middle" ing excited, I'm shaking.
Thank for that man. Nice song.
Btw, would you find out what is the song for the “inglourious blasterds” trailer? I really cant find it. Thnak you.
I knew I had heard that song (Welcome Home) but couldn’t place it… LOL, and I own that album.
Thanks for figuring it out!
I have no clue from where this song is, and panned to cut it out from trailer today =)
thank you so much I saw the trailer last night and it was driving me nuts because I KNEW I knew the C & C song but I couldn’t remember what it was.
The music in the new trailer is by The Glitch Mob and the song is called Red Dress Remix (a remix of TV on the Radio)
Here’s the new trailer:
Thanks for the songs.
Was kind of cool that you had a whole blog about it versus just telling us the songs.
Now I kind of wish I had an iPhone for those apps. (They’re useful!)
(I always here this song on the TV Listings channel, and I KNOW I know it from somewhere, but I can’t remember the name or the artist, or how to re-find the place I heard it.)
Anyway, great blog, and thanks for the songs! (Er…song titles.)
Both songs have full durations of 6:12… 6+1+2 = 9… Yay for spooky coincidences!
I love coheed and cambria. They are getting much popularit nowadays.
Its very nice song..thanks a lots…!!:-)
There are apps that actually pinpoint what song you are listening to, and you can apply it anywhere from trailers to television shows, huh? Hmmm….that’s actually kinda cool, despite sounding like a niche app.
I think if it’s cheap, or free, I’ll give it a shot.
nice song .thanks for sharing i was after some latest film news found your blog .
Thanks man. The song is awesome. I do not have iPhone but I m waiting to get my hand on iPhone 4 when it is released in India. I will definitely try this iphone app
This is a fantastic blog you have here. I visit here every week. I have already subscribed to your rss feed to help me stay update with your publication. Are you on twitter so that I can follow you?
Kewl Blog post! i was wondering ’bout the song, cause i just heard it on a flipnote! Thanks!
P.s: not my real E-mail!
Limili is something that I had tried and worked but Shazam and Midomi are cool too. These iPhone apps are really useful unlike some I have come across with.
