Requiem for a Day Off

The soundtrack is my favourite part of the incredibly depressing Requiem for a Dream. Especially Lux Æterna. It’s such a great soundtrack song. Here it is giving a dark and dramatic edge to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, in another classic Bueller mash-up.

Here it is being applied to the Little Mermaid…

And Pocahontas.

And a clever Toy Story mash up (embedding is disabled and there’s a language warning)

Incidentally, if you watch Requiem for a Dream backwards it’s an incredibly uplifting tale about a pair of drug addicts who enter recovery and restore their relationships with their families before living happily ever after.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
