A Song A Day: Feb 28th – 12 in 1!

28 02 2011

It’s Monday again! I’m excited about March being just one day away now – I’ll be undertaking the 30 day song challenge (which is doing the rounds on facebook) throughout March, see the link above.

This afternoon onwards I’ve been thinking about my favourite films in some detail. The reason being is because I’ve done a deal with fellow bloggette and film fan Dark Vador and we’re going to be making a top 10 post in the forthcoming days, which we’ll both post on the 14th March. So, 2 weeks from today. The trouble is, trying to sum up my favourite films is going to be harder then I think – but, there again I like a challenge, and it’s all a good bit of friendly fun.

So there I was with Evernote open making notes and ideas about films and possible wordage to go alongside them, whilst listening to my film soundtracks playlist open in Spotify. This following track came on, and it was stuck in my head for the rest of the day. It’s also a very cheeky way to cram more songs into this blog. It’s a medley of many a well known love song strung together and sung in a very grandiose style. This is the Elephant Love Medley from Moulin Rouge… which may or may not be making an appearance in the aforementioned top 10 list!

Christian: Love is a many splendored thing,
Love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love.
Satine: Please, don’t start that again.

C: All you need is love.
S: A girl has got to eat.

C: All you need is love.
S: Or she’ll end up on the streets.

C: All you need is love.
S: Love is just a game.

C: I was made for loving you baby, you were made for loving me.
S: The only way of loving me baby, is to pay a lovely fee.

C: Just one night, give me just one night.
S: There’s no way, ’cause you can’t pay.

C: In the name of love, one night in the name of love.
S: You crazy fool, I won’t give in to you.

C: Don’t leave me this way,
I can’t survive without your sweet love, oh baby
Don’t leave me this way.
S: You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.
C: I look around me and I see, it isn’t so, oh no.
S: Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs.

C: Well what’s wrong with that? I’d like to know.
‘Cause here I go again!
Love lifts us up where we belong,
Where eagles fly, on a mountain high.
S: Love makes us act like we are fools,
Throw our lives away, for one happy day.

C: We could be heroes! Just for one day.
S: You, you will be mean.

C: No I won’t!
S: And I, I’ll drink all the time.

C: We should be lovers.
S: We can’t do that.

C: We should be lovers, and that’s a fact.
S: Though nothing, will keep us together.

C: We could steal time…
Both: Just for one day. We could be heroes, forever and ever.
We could be heroes, forever and ever. We could be heroes…
C: Just because I will always love you.

S: I
Both: Can’t help loving you
S: How Wonderful life is
Both: Now you are in the world

You’re welcome, you are really coming into your own I think. The 30 day challenge should be hyper-fun – there are some great ideas which require songs. The movie list idea is going to be a labour of love I think! As for the demanding, and blogging tantrums… let me know when they start, so I can come and read!! I’m sure I can handle you! Glad I have you as a blogging partner-in-crime! xxx
