The Divine Miss M gave an electrifying performance and an Oscar-nominated role as a troubled female rock star patterned after Janis Joplin. The movie's theme The Rose gave us a range only she herself could pull it off.

sung by: Bette Midler

Some say love-
It is a river that drowns a tender reed
Some say love-
It is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love-
It is a hunger an endless, aching need
I say love-
It is a flower and you it’s only seed

It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance

It’s the one who won’t be taken
Who cannot seem to be
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
That you feel that love is only
For the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose
