Sing, Sang, Sung – “Nothing Else Matters” By Scala & Kolacny Brothers

I’m trying to be a good boy this year when it comes to culturing myself. Last year, I had seen exactly two of the movies nominated for Oscars: “The Muppets” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.” One of those won an Oscar, too.

But, this year, I’m trying to watch good films (and some bad). As a writer and actor, watching movies helps to hone one’s craft, lets you find things to emulate and steal or gives you ideas of how to do things better. It’s just a good idea. And, also, I just really want to beat 50% in the guessing game of who wins what Oscars. That’d be a personal best, to be sure.

Anyway, the current frontrunner and likely winner of the Best Picture Oscar this year is Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty.” While Oscar nominations haven’t officially come out yet, I’m guessing that both Bigelow and Tom Hooper will be nominated for Best Director, and both of their movies nominated for Best Picture. That’ll be interesting as both directors would be coming in defending their Oscars, in a sense, neither having made a film for the big screen since winning those awards (Bigelow for “The Hurt Locker” and Hooper for “The King’s Speech”).

While some of Hollywood has already managed to see two of the films likely to be nominated for Best Picture I have yet to see (“Silver Linings Playbook” and “Zero Dark Thirty”), here in Alabama, the movies have yet to come out. They’ll come out within the next couple of weeks or so, though, and I plan to see them when they do. During the wait, trailers for “Zero Dark Thirty” have been going crazy playing before most every movie. And the newest trailer has this fantastic song that I always thought I recognized but kept forgetting to Google.

Until now! I Googled the trailer and found out that the song is “Nothing Else Matters,” originally by Metallica. This one, sounding more like a slow, haunting children’s choir version, was done by Scala & Kolacny Brothers. And it’s pretty great. And it makes the trailer look exciting as heck. I’d certainly want to watch the movie if I hadn’t already decided to a while back. Give it a listen.

“Nothing Else Matters” – Scala & Kolacny Brothers

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
It couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way hey
Life is ours, we live it our way hey
All these words I don’t just say hey
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know, yeah yeah!

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters.
