The Internet is oft maligned, but it does provide opportunities for artists to share work with one another in a most interesting way. Such was the case with Henning Ohlenbusch, a talented singer-songwriter who contacted me after seeing this here series posted on my blog.
Performing under the name Henning, this gentleman has completed an entire album of songs inspired not just by the existence of the movies he has chosen, but their emotional and thematic content as well. It’s a wonderful project called Henning Goes to the Movies, and his repertoire is taken from all sorts of eclectic films, from science fiction to indie dramas to goofball comedies like Meatballs:
Here is the full list of songs on Henning’s album:
Joe Vs. The Volcano
The Straight Story
The Year My Voice Broke
Planes Trains and Automobiles
