ONE IN A MILLION (MISS CONGENIALITY, 2000)

Here's one reason why we love Sandra Bullock. She doesn't take herself seriously, no matter how silly a role is, she takes it by heart and thereby won the audiences over. In 2000, she made one of her most successful films ever as Gracie Hart, an FBI Agent who must go undercover in a beauty pageant in order to get the bad guys. Sounds silly but definitely fun. Bullock makes the film overall engaging. Bosson sang the famous pageant dance portion while Hart struts her stuff.



ONE IN A MILLION

sung by: Bosson


You’re one in a million…Oh…..Now

You’re one in a million…Oh


Sometimes love can hit you every day

Sometimes you can fall for everyone you see

But only one can really make me stay

A sign from the sky

Said to me


You’re one in a million

You’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us

You’re one in a million

You’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us


I’ve been looking for that special one

And I’ve been searching for someone to give my love

And when I thought that all the hope was gone

A smile, there you were and I was gone


I always will remember how I felt that day

A feeling indescribable to me

Yeah, I always knew there was an answer for my prayer

And you, you’re the one for me


You’re one in a million

You’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us

You’re one in a millionYou’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us


In the beginning I was cool and everything was possible

They tried to catch me but it was impossible

No one could hurt me it was my game

Until I met you baby and you were the same

And when you didn’t want me I wanted you because

The funny thing about it is I liked the show

I like it when its difficult

I like it when its hard

Then you know its worth it

That you found your heart


You’re one in a million

You’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us

You’re one in a millionYou’re once in a lifetime

You made me discover one of the stars above us

You’re one in a million….Oh

You’re one in a million

NEVER SAY NEVER (TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, 2009)

The much ballyhooed series of the famous transforming robots by Michael Bay somehow gives a more decent selections when it comes to soundtrack. The Fray's contribution to the second installment with added title Revenge Of The Fallen is memorable to say the least in the film. The author has very little preferences in today's music let alone songs from today's movies. And this song is just one of the few 'modern' tunes to come up palatable.


NEVER SAY NEVER

sung by: The Fray


Some things we don’t talk about

Rather do without

And just hold the smile

Falling in and out of love

Ashamed and proud of

Together all the while


You can never say never

While we don’t know when

But time and time again

Younger now than we were before


Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go


Picture, you’re the queen of everything

As far as the eye can see

Under your command

I will be your guardian

When all is crumbling

To steady your hand


You can never say never

While we don’t know when

Time, time, time again

Younger now than we were before


Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go


We’re pulling apart and coming together again and again

We’re growing apart but we pull it together, pull it together

Together again, ooohh


(INSTRUMENTAL)


Oh, don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

Don’t let me go

ONE FOR MY BABY (AND ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD) (THE SKY'S THE LIMIT, 1943)


The legendary Fred Astaire stars in one of Hollywood's enjoyable '40's romcom. He plays a WII fighter pilot who woos a photographer (Joan Leslie) while on leave. Astaire sang the very famous One For My Baby (And One More For The Road). Just one of 'those' songs that has been covered by a many other artists. But with Astaire, it's always a class act.


ONE FOR MY BABY
(AND ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD)

sung by: Fred Astaire


It’s quarter to three

There’s no one in the place except you and me

So set ‘em up, Joe

I got a little story

You oughta know


We’re drinkin’, my friend

To the end of a brief episode

Make it one for my baby

And one more for the road


I got the routine
So drop another nickel in the machine

I’m feelin’ so bad


I wish you’d make the music so dreamy and sad


Could tell you a lot

But it’s not in a gentleman’s code

Make it one for my baby

And one more for the road


You never know it

But buddy I’m a kind of poet

And I’ve got a lot of things to say

And when I’m gloomy you simply got to listen to me

Until it’s all talked away


Well, that’s how it goes

And Joe I know you’re getting anxious to close

So, thanks for the beer

I hope you didn’t mind my bending your ear


Don’t let it be said

Little Freddie couldn’t carry his load

Make it one for my baby

And one more for the road

That long, long road

NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN (NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, 1983)

One good thing aside from non-stop action and endless skirt-chasing of the famous 007 James Bond is the theme that goes along with every movie. In the '80s, Lani Hall sang one of her signature song. A sultry theme, no less. Never Say, Never Again stars Sean Connery and Kim Basinger in one of her earliest movie roles.




NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN

sung by: Lani Hall




You walk in a room

A woman can feel the heat

One look is a guarantee

Nights could be long and sweet


The message is clear

Like nothing I’ve ever known

But the more that I hear

Forget about long-range plans

'Cause this man’s got his own


To get mixed up with a man who says never

Maybe big trouble but then

I just could be the woman to take you

And make you never say never again

Never, never say never again

Never, never say never again
Never, never say never again
Never, never say never again



You’ve got all the moves

Ah, but baby I’ve got them too

No matter your attitude or your mood

I’ll come through


The touch of your voice

The feel of your eyes on me

You leave me no choice

Though I know there’s danger there

I don’t care let it be


To get it bad with a man who says never

May have no future but then

I just could be the woman to reach you

And teach you to never say never again


I’ll beg you

I’ll get you

I’ll reach you

I’ll teach you

I’ll take you

I’ll make you

NEVER SAY DIE (IRON EAGLE, 1986)

"Break the sound barrier. Break the speed barrier." - tagline

King Kobra's Never Say Die is a riproaring tune from the '80s movie Iron Eagle. The action flick stars Louis Gossett, Jr as Col. Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair and Jason Gedrick as Doug Masters who's on a mission to save his father, an Air Force Pilot.


NEVER SAY DIE

sung by: King Kobra


I can do anything when I choose

Got everything but I got nothing to lose

Go anywhere from heaven to hell

I might find the devil you can never tell


There’s a thousand hills and valleys


A million dams and streams

An ocean of eternity

Between my hopes and dreams


Never say die, Iron Eagle

Nothing’s forever, now or ever

Never say die, Iron Eagle

Never look back, never say die


Don’t try and bring my soul to the ground

My spirit remembers old mountain magic sounds

Against all odds, I’ll come out on top

'Cause I never learned the meaning of what meant stop


There are walls and there are bridges

But no problems when you’re free

An adventure past the horizon

Always beckons me


Never say die, Iron Eagle

Nothing’s forever, now or ever

Never say die, Iron Eagle

Never look back, never say die


(INSTRUMENTAL)

MY RIFLE, MY PONY AND ME (RIO BRAVO, 1959)

Rio Bravo, one of the famous western flicks among aficionados of the genre stars the legendary John Wayne. The film also star Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson who also sang together the wistful My Rifle, My Pony And Me in one of the film's scene.


MY RIFLE, MY PONY AND ME

sung by: Dean Martin & Ricky Nelson


Sun is sinking in the west

The cattle go down to the stream

The redwing settles in the nest

It’s time for a cowboy to dream


Purple light in the canyon

That is where I long to be

With my three good companions

Just my rifle, pony and me



Gonna hang my sombrero

On the limb of a tree

Coming home sweet my darling

Just my rifle, pony and me


Whippoorwill in the willow

Sings a sweet melody

Riding to Amarillo

Just my rifle, pony and me


No more cows to be ropin

No more strays will I see

'Round the bend she’ll be waitin’

For my rifle, pony and me

For my rifle, my pony and me

MY LITTLE GIRL (FLICKA, 2006)

Country superstar Tim McGraw acted and sang the heartfelt My Little Girl from the 2006 film, Flicka. The film is about a young girl Katie (Alison Lohman) who wants to prove to her father (Tim McGraw) she can run their family ranch some day by taming a wild horse as her own.


MY LITTLE GIRL

sung by: Tim McGraw



Gotta hold on easy as I let you go

Gonna tell you how much I love you

Though you think you already know


I remember I thought you looked like an angel

Wrapped in pink, so soft and warm

You’ve had me wrapped around your finger

Since the day you were born


You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That’ll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you’ll always be

My little girl


When you were in trouble that crooked little smile

Could melt my heart of stone

Now look at you, I’ve turned around

And you’ve almost grown


Sometimes you’re asleep I whisper ‘I love you’

In the moonlight at your door

As I walk away, I hear you say’Daddy, love you more’


You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That’ll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you’ll always be

My little girl


Someday, some boy will come

And ask me for your hand

But I won’t say yes to him unless I know

He’s the half that makes you whole


He has a poet’s soul, and the heart of a man’s man

I know he’ll say that he’s in love

But between you and me

He won’t be good enough


You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That’ll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you’ll always be

My little girl

Oklahoma! is just one of the numerous Rodgers and Hammerstein's movie-musical production.

sung by: Gordon MacRae


There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow

The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye

And it looks like it’s climbin’ clear up to the sky


Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I’ve got a beautiful feeling

Everything’s going my way




All the sounds of the earth are like music

All the sounds of the earth are like music

The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree

And an ol’ Weepin’ Willer is laughin’ at me


Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I’ve got a beautiful feeling

Everything’s going my way
Oohh, what a beautiful day

JUMP IN THE LINE (BEETLEJUICE, 1988)

Director Tim Burton's earlier effort is an entertaining and at most times a surreal journey into the world of one naughty ghost named Beetlejuice (just don't call his name thrice in a row!). Michael Keaton, more popular as Burton's version of Batman plays the titular character, he gets to act crazy in a phantasmic way. Cool songs were also heard throughout the film, the end scene when Lydia (Winona Ryder) floats and dances into Harry Belafonte's Jump In The Line song is pure Burton fun.


JUMP IN THE LINE

(SHAKE, SHAKE SENORA)

sung by: Harry Belafonte


Shake, shake, shake, Senora, shake your body line

Work, work, work, Senora, work your body line

ONE UPON A TIME (BEYOND THE SEA, 2004)

Oscar Winner Kevin Spacey gets to portray the iconic Bobby Darin, one of his dream roles. In Beyond The Sea, (the movie title culled from one of Darin's signature songs) Spacey's Bobby traces back the life of the famous singer from being a nobody to a total entertainer. Spacey is simply amazing as he uncannily resembles Bobby Darin!


ONCE UPON A TIME

sung by: Kevin Spacey


Once upon a time

A girl with moonlight in her eyes

Put her hand in mine

And said she loved me so

But that was once upon a time
Very long ago


Once upon a time

We sat beneath a willow tree

Counting all the stars

And waiting for the dawn

But that was once upon a time

Now the tree is gone


How the breeze ruffled through her hair

How we always laughed

As though tomorrow wasn’t there

We were young

And didn’t have a care

Where did it go?


Once upon a time

The world was sweeter than we knew

Everything was ours

How happy we were then

But somehow once upon a time

Never comes again

MY HEART AND SOUL

sung by: Stephen Bishop


The years they come and go

And change will come I know

You won’t be there

My heart and soul


Different time and place

The time cannot erase

The smile that lights your face

As you gaze in mine


It will always shine

And you will always be

An angel making sure I can

A memory that’s always there

Your dreams won’t die if they live inside of me

You’ll always be my heart and soul


The years go long and on

I looked and you were gone

I miss you so

My heart and soul


The years can make you wise

I finally realize

That if I just close my eyes

I can see all there


From the love we share

And you will always be

A dream so real it cannot die

A trust in faith that lets me fly

A thought so strong it just belongs to me

You’ll always be my heart and soul


An angel making sure I can

A memory that’s always there

You’ll always be my heart and soul

MORE THAN A WOMAN

sung by: Bee Gees


Oh, girl I’ve known you very well
I’ve seen you growing everyday
I never really looked before
But now you take my breath away


Suddenly you’re in my life
Part of everything I do
You got me working day and night
Just trying to keep a hold on you


Here in your arms I found my paradise
My only chance for happiness
And if I lose you now I think I would die


Oh say you’ll always be my baby
We can make it shine, we can take forever
Just a minute at a time
Oh, oh, oh

More than a woman, more than a woman to me
More than a woman, more
than a woman to me
Oh, oh, oh


There are stories old and true
Of people so in love like you and me
And I can see myself
Let history repeat itself

Reflecting how I feel for you
Thinking of
those people then
I know that in a thousand years
I’d fall in love with you again


This is the only way that we should fly
This is the only way to go
And if I lose your love I know I would die


Oh say you’ll always be my baby
We can make it shine, we can take forever
Just a minute at a time
Oh, oh, oh, oh

More than a woman, more than a woman to me
More than a woman, more than a woman to me
More than a woman, more than a woman to me
More than a woman, more than a woman to me……..

Moonlight becomes you

It goes with your hair

You certainly know the right thing to wear


Moonlight becomes you

I’m thrilled at the sight

And I could get so romantic tonight


You’re all dressed up to go dreaming

Now don’t tell me I’m wrong

And what a night to go dreaming

Mind if I tag along


If I say I love you

I want you to know

It’s not just because there’s moonlight

Although, moonlight becomes you so


(INSTRUMENTAL/WHISTLE)


Moonlight becomes you

What a beautiful view

Moonlight with you


You’re all dressed up to go dreaming

Now don’t tell me I’m wrong

And what a night to go dreaming

Mind if I tag along


If I say I love you

I want you to know

It’s not just because there’s moonlight

Although, moonlight becomes you so

MAYBE THIS TIME (CABARET, 1972)

One of the iconic roles in Hollywood cinema Sally Bowles was portrayed by no less an icon herself, Liza Minelli in the musical motion picture, Cabaret.

Maybe this time, I’ll be lucky

Maybe this time, he’ll stay

Maybe this time

For the first time

Love won’t hurry away


He will hold me fast

I’ll be home at last

Not a loser anymore

Like the last time

And the time before


Everybody loves a winner

So nobody loved me

'Lady Peaceful,' 'Lady Happy'

That’s what I long to be

All the odds are in my favor

Something’s bound to begin

It’s got to happen, happen sometime

Maybe this time I’ll win…

NEW DIVIDE (TRANSFORMERS, 2007)

'80s very popular toy line Transformers and its t.v. cartoon series gets an upgrade in the new millienium via the 2007 motion picture. Produced by no less than Steven Spielberg himself, the movie presented the all-time war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Linkin Park sang the ultra-cool main theme, New Divide.



NEW DIVIDE

sung by: Linkin Park


I remembered black skies

The lightning all around me

I remembered each flash

As time began to blur

Like a startling sign

That fate had finally found me


And your voice was all I heard

That I get what I deserve


So give me reason

To prove me wrong

To wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross

The distance in your eyes

Give me reason

To fill this hole

Connect this space between

Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies

Across this new divide


There was nothing inside

The memories left abandoned

There was nowhere to hide

The ashes fell like snow

And the ground caved in

Between where we were standing


And your voice was all I heard

That I get what I deserve


So give me reason

To prove me wrong

To wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross

The distance in your eyes

Across this new divide


In every loss in every lie

In every truth that you deny

And each regret and each goodbye

Was a mistake too great to hide


And your voice was all I heard

That I get what I deserve


So give me reason

To prove me wrong

To wash this memory clean

Let the floods cross

The distance in your eyes

Give me reason

To fill this hole

Connect this space between

Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies

Across this new divide

Across this new divide

Across this new divide

O CHILDREN (HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, 2010)

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One needs no further introduction. And most will remember the dancing scene inside the tent of Harry and Hermione (albeit awkward) when Ron left them by themselves. And the song they danced to is by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, the slow and quite somber O Children.



O CHILDREN
sung by: Nick Cave And the Bad Seeds

Pass me that lovely little gun

My dear, my darling one

The cleaners are coming, one by one

You don't even want to let them start


They are knocking now upon your door

They measure the room, they know the score

They're mopping up the butcher's floor

Of your broken little hearts


O children


Forgive us now for what we've done

It started out as a bit of fun

Here, take these before we run away

The keys to the gulag


O children

Lift up your voice, lift up your voice

Children

Rejoice, rejoice


C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Here comes Frank and poor old Jim

They're gatherin' round with all my friends

We're older now, the light is dim

And you are only just beginning


O children


We have the answer to all your fears

It's short, it's simple, it's crystal clear

It's round about and it's somewhere here

Lost amongst our winnings


O children

Lift up your voice, lift up your voice

Children

Rejoice, rejoice


The cleaners have done their job on you

They're hip to it, man, they're in the groove

They've hosed you down, you're good as new

They're lining up to inspect you


O children


Poor old Jim's white as a ghost

He's found the answer that we lost

We're all weeping now, weeping because

There ain't nothing we can do to protect you


O children

Lift up your voice, lift up your voice

Children

Rejoice, rejoice


Hey little train! We are all jumping on

The train that goes to the Kingdom

We're happy, Ma, we're having fun

And the train ain't even left the station


Hey, little train! Wait for me!

I once was blind but now I see

Have you left a seat for me?

Is that such a stretch of the imagination?


Hey little train! Wait for me!

I was held in chains but now I'm free

I'm hanging in there, don't you see

In this process of elimination


Hey little train! We are all jumping on

The train that goes to the Kingdom

We're happy, Ma, we're having fun

It's beyond my wildest expectation


Hey little train! We are all jumping on

The train that goes to the Kingdom

We're happy, Ma, we're having fun

And the train ain't even left the station

MY SWEET, ETERNAL LOVE (THE MUMMY TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR, 2008)

The third installment of The Mummy series is easily the weakest entry. Subtitled Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor, the story has an ancient chinese emperor (Jet Li) cursed by a witch and came back as (what else) mummy to wreak havoc in the life of Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and his family. A single scene stood out when the song My Sweet, Eternal Love sang by Helen Feng was heard during the bar scene.



MY SWEET, ETERNAL LOVE

sung by: Helen Feng


Before you, my life was so secure

Without allure and far too sure

Into my lap you fell

Like an angel straight from hell

You came into my world as a sweet surprise

In my eyes you have no disguise

In your arms I lost paradise


My sweet, Eternal love

My sweet, Infernal love

My sweet, Eternal love


Your touch scorched me with luscious fire

And the strange desire

To possess your soul entire

But your heart made mine alive


My sweet, Infernal love

My sweet, Eternal love

My sweet, Infernal love


Now we told ourselves to forget the past

The reach should not exceed the grasp

And nothing true can ever last

Except our words of pain and our hearts of lust


My sweet, Eternal love

My sweet, Infernal love

My Eternal, Infernal love


MALAGUENA SALEROSA (KILL BILL VOL. 2, 2004)



Author's Note: Missed out July 17's entry. Here are the two entries.


Kill Bill Vol.2, the second part of perhaps the ultimate revenge drama ever made nevertheless gave another great soundtrack. Chingon provided the end theme in the movie, Malaguena Salerosa. Well-put out!



MALAGUENA SALEROSA
sung by: Chingon


Que bonitos ojos tienes

Debajo de ésas dos cejas

Debajo de ésas dos cejas
Que bonitos ojos tienes


Ellos me quieren mirar

Pero si tú no los dejas

Pero si tú no los dejas

Ni siquiera parpadear


Malagueña salerosa

Besar tus labios quisiera

Besar tus labios quisiera

Malagueña salerosa

Y decirte niña hermosa


Que eres lin........da y hechicera

Que eres linda y hechicera

Como el candor de una rosa


Si por pobre me desprecias

Yo te concedo razon

Yo te concedo razon

Si por pobre me desprecias


Yo no te ofrezco riquezas

Te ofrezco mi corazón

Te ofrezco mi corazón

A cámbio de mi pobreza


Malagueña salerosa

Besar tus labios quisiera

Besar tus labios quisiera

Malagueña salerosa

Y decirte niña hermosa


Que eres lin........da y hechicera

Que eres linda y hechicera

Como el candor de una rosa

Y decirte niña hermosa

LYIN' EYES (URBAN COWBOY, 1980)

Urban Cowboy, one of John Travolta's early fare is the story of a young "cowboy" Bud Davis who goes to Gilley's, Houston's famed nightclub. There he meets Sissy (the stunningly beautiful Debra Winger) who fancies him as the 'real thing'. Scott Glenn co-stars. The Eagles sang just one of their popular songs in , Lyin' Eyes.



LYIN' EYES
sung by: Eagles


City girls just seem to find out early

How to open doors with just a smile

A rich old man

And she won't have to worry

She'll dress up all in lace and go in style


Late at night a big old house gets lonely

I guess ev'ry form of refuge has its price

And it breaks her heart to think her love is

Only given to a man with hands as cold as ice


So she tells him she must go out for the evening

To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down

But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin'

She is headed for the cheatin' side of town


You can't hide your lyin' eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you'd realize

There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes


On the other side of town a boy is waiting

With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal

She drives on through the nice anticipating

'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel


She rushes to his arms

They fall together

She whispers that it's only for awhile

She swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever

She pulls away and leaves him with a smile


You can't hide your lyin' eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you'd realize

There ain't no way to hide you lyin' eyes


She gets up and pours herself a strong one

And stares out at the stars up in the sky

Another night, it's gonna be a long one

She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry


She wonders how it ever got this crazy

She thinks about a boy she knew in school

Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?

She's so far gone she feels just like a fool


My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things

You set it up so well, so carefully

Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things

You're still the same old girl you used to be


You can't hide your lyin eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you'd realize

There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes

There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes

Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes

LOVING YOU IS ALL I KNOW (THE OTHER SISTER, 1999)

The Other Sister is feel-good story of two mentally-challenged young people who fell in love and decide they want to make it on their own. Juliette Lewis and Giovanni Ribisi plays Carla and Daniel who play their characters to a tee. The film also boasts of great tunes both old and new. One of the songs featured is the wonderful song Loving You Is All I Know by The Pretenders.


LOVING YOU IS ALL I KNOW

sung by: The Pretenders


I don't understand how the sun keeps shining

And I don't understand why the seasons change

And I don't have a clue, what makes the rivers flow

Loving you is all I know


I cant tell you why stars come out in the evening

And I cant tell you where they go when there gone

And I don't have a clue, what makes a flower grow

Loving you is all I know


I don't know how the world keeps on spinning round

I don't know why the sky don't come falling down

I just know that I would die without your touch

I don't know why the tide needs to reach the shore

I just know that I'll need you for, forever more

Knowing that I guess I know enough


I can't really say if there is a heaven

But I feel like it's here when I feel you near me baby

If angels are real, they must know how I feel

'Cause loving you Is all I know


I don't know how the world keeps on spinning round

I don't know why the sky don't come falling down

I just know that I would die without your touch

I don't know why the tide needs to reach the shore

I just know that I'll need you for, forever more

Knowing that I guess I know enough



I don't understand how the sun keeps shining

I don't understand why the seasons changin', changin', changin'

I don't have a clue, what makes the rivers flow

And loving you is all I know

(is all I know, is all I know, is all I know)

Loving you is all I know

LOVING STRANGERS (NOTHING IN COMMON, 1986)

Christopher Cross once again lent his voice to render one of the themes from the movie Nothing In Common, Loving Strangers. In this '80s dramedy, Tom Hanks plays David Basner, a successful ad man who must struggle to keep his sanity when his parents broke-up. Jackie Gleason and screen legend Eva Marie Saint plays his warring parents Max and Lorraine.


LOVING STRANGERS
sung by: Christopher Cross
 
Young and free, kicking the fences down

Somewhere hearts are breaking

But he can't hear the sound

They got nothin' in common

He smiles away on the wings of a dream


He's all caught up in that world of his

She says I'm gonna miss you but I can't live like this

We got nothin' in common

So sad to say it has to be this way


Everyone on a road of their own

Everyone gotta find a heart a home

Loving strangers - that's you and me

Gonna have the way to love, give a little honesty


('Cause they got nothing in common)


I can feel there's a hope on the wind

The sound of your voice - I think I hear a friend

We got nothin' in common

I know we don't, but it won't stay that way


Everyone on a road of their own

Everyone gotta find a heart a home

Loving strangers - that's you and me

Give a way to love, give a little honesty


Everybody needs to know if there will somewhere

Someday be someone to call their own

Everybody needs to hope that there will one day come

A someone just in time


Everyone on a road of their own

Everyone gotta find a heart a home

Loving strangers - that's you and me

Give a way to love, give a little honesty


'Cause we got nothing in common

'Cause we got nothing in common

'Cause we got nothing in common

'Cause we got nothing in common
