I NEVER DREAMED SOMEONE LIKE YOU COULD LOVE SOMEONE LIKE ME (CARRIE, 1976)

"They're all gonna laugh at you...They're all gonna laugh at you..."

A well-made film based on the Stephen King bestseller. It's a story of a young woman who can move things with her mind. The Brian De Palma-helmed movie has often been considered a horror film and an ultimate teen revenge flick when in fact it's more of a study in human condition. Top-notch acting from all the actors especially Sissy Spacek as Carrie White. You actually feel for her. Katie Irving sung the well-loved theme during the prom scene.


I NEVER DREAMED SOMEONE LIKE YOU
COULD LOVE SOMEONE LIKE ME
sung by: Katie Irving

Could it be that the lady is me in the photograph?
I’m afraid ‘cause it feels too good and I want it too bad
It’s just not true, couldn’t ask for anymore than you

Because you look at me as though I’m beautiful
Could it be that you want me?
I never dreamed someone like you could want someone like me

I’m not sure but the more that it’s real, the more it’s right
Ooh, what a night, it’s as though we’ve been lovers all of our lives
There must be God, could it be that he’s heard me at last

Because you look at me as though I’m beautiful
Could it be the lady is me?
I never dreamed someone like you could want someone like me

All the pain and the pleasure’s the same, it goes so fast
I’m the girl with the strawberry hair in the photograph
So come on let’s dance, let me have it while I have a chance

‘Cause there’s another room where there are other girls
But tonight there’s only me
I never dreamed someone like you could want someone like me
