about

I developed Adventures of Power as a musical, taking place in a heightened reality where instead of breaking into song, people would air-drum. The songs would need to transform the protagonist from a small-town copper-miner obsessed with one kind of song - FM radio rock - to a more worldly fool able to drum along to everything from tabla duels to Algerian pop. The movie also needed a wide-screen underscore that would carry the film’s spiritual and political message. Only one composer, songwriter, and performer could bring the right combination of humor and soul: my brother Ethan Gold. Along with delivering a stunning score, Ethan created over a dozen original songs for the movie in genres both known and invented. From Mexican death metal about eating cereal, for Power’s first scary step away from the comfort of his New Mexico town, to country-hip-hop-pop-punk for the pretty-boy antagonist, to fey 80s electrofunk for the Newark trainer’s old band, Ethan made the whole thing believable, funny, and catchy all at once. This album is a parallel version of Adventures of Power, an impossibly fantastic journey that celebrates the power of music to amuse, move, and uplift the human heart.

Track Name: New Jersey Nights
New Jersey Nights
words & music by Ethan Gold
from "Adventures of Power" Original Soundtrack ©2010

On a New Jersey night
The boys went looking for a fight
From the bay, from Cape May
All the way up LBI

Paulie brought his best old switchblade
Timmy packed cuz he was tight
Jack was scared, Joe’s prepared
For the boys from old Seabright

At the pier we met ‘em squarely
Hit ‘em twice for every shot
It’s no jive, to stay alive
But we gave ‘em all we got

On a New Jersey night
Th-Those New Jersey nights
Th-Those New Jersey nights
Make it all alright

Now the boys have grown up somehow
Timmy works pouring concrete
Jack’s around, underground
Joey’s doing one to three

And if you see little Shoshanna
Won’t you say hello for me
In my heart, she’s still part
Of the life I thought I’d lead

We weren’t asking for nothing
More than what we got, it wasn’t a lot. No.
But if they try to take
Our one little piece away
We’ll give them everything our fists can give ‘em

Cuz on a New Jersey morning
Well it isn’t much to see
Purple dawn, dreams are gone
Like a fading memory

But on a New Jersey night
The boys still putting up a fight
Brothers strike, on the Pike
From Secaucus to Seabright

New Jersey Nights
New Jersey Nights
Th-Those New Jersey Nights
Make it all alright
New Jersey Nights
New Jersey Nights
Th-Those New Jersey Nights
Make it all alright
That's right
Track Name: Impossible Fantasy
Impossible Fantasy
words & music by Ethan Gold
from "Adventures of Power" Original Soundtrack ©2010

Nickeled and dimed
Overtimed
They got you workin’ so you just might lose your mind
Your ears ringin’
Your eyes stingin’
When payday comes the boss man just robs ya blind

Oh, they work you to the bone
And they just bring ya down when you get at home
You’re the man with the plan
Soon they’ll all understand you
Got the will, got the skill
To be a super man

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy (believe in yourself)
Is guiding you fearlessly (you and no-one else)
To that glorious place
At the end of the race
Where your dreams run free
That impossible fantasy (time to begin)
Is becoming your destiny (your time to win)
So raise your head high
Set your sights on the sky
And make your dream your new reality

Paid your toll
You’re on a roll
They got you sweating but you still won’t lose control
The bell’s ringin’
Your heart’s singin’
Clockin’ out you know they still don’t own your soul
Though they work you to the bone
(And they just laugh at you at home)
You’re the man with the plan
Only your will commands you
Write the plot, cosmonaut
You’ll be a Superman

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy (believe in yourself)
Is guiding you fearlessly (you and no-one else)
To that glorious place
Out in outer space
Where your horses run free
That impossible fantasy (it’s time to begin)
Is becoming your destiny (your time to win)
So raise your head high
you’ll rocket to the sky
And make your dream your new reality

Yo……

Fui a – una fiesta
Y otra vez – regreso solo

Pase por – la bodega
Siempre busco – la misma cosa
Luz brillan – a toda hora
Me va a dar mi poder
Y si haya leche en el frigo

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cerealismo!

Fui a – la cama
La revolución me pasa – de largo

La fruta prohibida
Ahora la Muerte causa
Pero – vale la pena
Pero – no me importa
Sé que hay leche en el frigo

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!

Los villancios
Te hicieron pasarfrio
El mundo ha esperado
Tanto para abrazarte
Sería como una piedra que quiere volar

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cerealismo!
