I’m sitting here watching City of Angels. It’s on TV and there’s not a whole lot of choice at this hour. I think that I’ve only ever seen it once, and I probably didn’t appreciate it as much the first time that I saw it. Given the last year of turbulence, it’s amazing how different it seems now.
There were a few great songs released on the soundtrack. Remember Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls (are they even still around?)? Love that one! And I was pretty sure that Uninvited by Alanis Morissette was going to appear somewhere. Apparently in the end credits. I didn’t realize that Sarah McLachlan’s Angel was from this movie, although I can certainly understand why. That song appears quite high on my top ranked playlist.
Sometimes I’ll hear a song in a movie or a TV show that I’ve never heard before, and was probably never released to the radio, and for some reason it hits me. My mission now is to find I Grieve by Peter Gabriel. It only played for about 30 seconds, but it was enough for me and one of the other guys to comment on it. Good ole iTunes to the rescue?
If I remember correctly, I bought this movie (probably on VHS) for my sister a few years back. Maybe it was DVD. Or maybe it was the soundtrack on CD.
The ole memory gets a little worse every day it seems!
And now The Wedding Planner is coming on. It must be wuss night on Movie Time.
