Song o’ the Mornin’ – Kath Bloom’s Come Here

Since Linklater's got a new movie out, Before Midnight, the gang at Power's Towers have checked out the first two of the trilogy.

And we can’t wait for the appropriately late showing at Bio Oko, so lovely have been the others.

One might quip that Richard Linklater is America’s best French film director (if it weren’t for the execrable School of Rock), given that his movies are ever so talky and about important stuff, like love, life and the meaning of it all. It ain’t Taratinesque, fo’ sho’.

Anyway, a Yank boy and French girl meet on a train and spend a night of magic in Vienna, waaay back in the early 90s. How they hit it off, what’s important to them, their chemistry, the natural performances and leisurely story telling – are all uberly hard to do once a camera starts rolling.

So this morning, like the last Trey’s had all week, it’s Kath Bloom‘s Come Here, from one of the most pitch-perfect romantic scenes in cinema history.

You can buy the song here, or where the hell you please. Sadly, not in a chic vinyl store in Vienna, in 1994. 1994’s gone, baby. Gone.

The movies can be rented or bought here, among other places.

Free Music for the un-Valentines

One from the heart for singletons

Only a wee bit of free music can soothe the savage heart

on this day of unfulfillable expectations, lousy restaurants, tasteless gifts and eggshell conversations.

And, no, Xmas hasn’t come early today.

My gift to frustrated lovers everywhere – an un-Valentine’s song as you’re going to get. Replete with acoustic band, harpsichord, and blemishes – though some of us like our blemishes, for they reveal the real meaning of beauty.

For all the singletons, one from the heart.

Force Majeure

True love, fallen from the skies above, is a feeling best kept close to heart
Once opened gates let flood waters inundate, when they’re gone what can be done to go on?

“Someone always pays”

Shooting stars are but collisions from afar, for all their beauty, and they’re meaningless
You’re in my constellation for all time, but am past you, across the universe

“Someone always pays
No one ever stays”

Word and music (C) A Power 2013.
