Today's cd/Love Actually soundtrack
Love Actually soundtrack/2003
My 24 year old daughter is visiting, so I asked her to choose the cd for today. I didn't get to watch this movie during December, but hope to next year. It's one of my favorite movies, Christmas or otherwise. The album has a lot of great songs by a variety of artists. Here's one done by Wyclef Jean and Sharissa called Take Me As I Am that I just love.
And Joni Mitchell singing Both Sides Now as an older woman is just amazing.
And I think using the old Beach Boys song, God Only Knows was the perfect touch.
In the liner notes, the director of the movie, Richard Curtis says, "Without its music, Love Actually wouldn't work at all. I know – because I saw the film without the music, and it was a shocker. So this soundtrack isn't a few songs stuck together; it's the life and soul of the film."
A really great soundtrack album.
