Way back in 2002, 5 Alarm Music was just a wee lad born from the minds of Cassie Lord and Maddie Madsen. Maddie is a rare breed – a shredding musician/songwriter who is responsible enough to hold a job……and even start a company!! That’s about as common as a living breathing Dodo bird.
Maddie’s taste in music is diverse to say the least. She loves everything from Metal to Mahler! So without further ado, here’s Maddie’s Favorite 5:
Weeping World – 5 Alarm Music Library (05A031 track 7)
I’m the Co-Executive Producer for the 5 Alarm Music library. This song will always have a special meaning to me because of it’s ability to transport me back to the beginning, when there were only 4 of us and also the relevance of it’s message as a song.
Wonderawe – Cinemasounds Music Library (CTM002 track 10)
Linda Martinez was one of the most brilliant musicians I have ever had the honor of working with. I remember sitting in the studio watching the live players performing her score for this composition after she had passed away and getting chills. The world is not the same without her.
Huggy Bear – Primrose Music Library (PRCD150 track 1)
I went through a big Electronica phase about 10 years ago and Big Beat is so much fun! This song cracks me up.
Shelter Over You – Green Vinyl Dream (Rescue Records)
Anyone who really knows me knows I’m a rocker at heart. I’ve played in 2 Progressive Metal bands in my former life. I love this band and the lyrics really speak to me.
Mahler’s 5th Symphony: Adagietto – Supraphon Music Library (SUP11-1976 track 4)
I grew up playing and listening to Classical music and this is one of my all time favorites. I even saw Mahler’s Fifth Symphony performed in London by the LSO. What a treat!
