Current Obsessions 27 February, 2006

{Well, there’s Brokeback Mountain, of course, which I can’t quite explain, but Him is being driven up the wall by having had to listen to the soundtrack every single day since I got it. (And Brokeback Mountain: Story to Screenplay and Annie Proulx’s Bad Dirt: Wyoming Stories and Heart Songs are in the post. And I’ve seen it twice and am plotting my next viewings as I write this.)}

But in other obsessive news, I am obsessed with Tim McGraw’s Please Remember Me, which makes me cry while I’m bawling my lungs out in hopefully-harmonious accompaniment.

When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
A new wind is gonna find your sail
That’s where your journey starts

You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Just like the waves down by the shore
We’re gonna keep on coming back for more
‘Cause we don’t ever wanna stop
Out in this brave new world you seek
Oh the valleys and the peaks
And I can see you on the top

You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Remember me when you’re out walkin’
When the snow falls high outside your door
Late at night when you’re not sleepin’
And moonlight falls across your floor
When I can’t hurt you anymore

You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me
Please remember me

*Deep breath*

Oooo, and I’m obsessed with Emmylou Harris singing A Love That Will Never Grow Old too.* Oh, wait a minute, that’s from the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack. So as I was saying…

*And Gustavo Santaolalla’s Wings (and Snow, and Riding Horses, blahblah). And Rufus Wainwright’s Maker Makes. And so on and so forth. And I’ve also just realised that the only reason I stumbled upon Please Remember Me was because I was watching a fan video of that mountain movie**. I still refuse to be embarrassed though.

** (In an email conversation, Him in Geneva, me at work):
Me: Hear from you tonight at 11pm my time. Take care.
Him: Enjoy your Brokeback molehill later tonight!
