Top Gun: Maverick (dir. by Joseph Kosinski) 
From the moment it was announced, I had low expectations for Top Gun: Maverick. I figured it was just Tom Cruise milking his other franchise for what it's worth. I mean, I adore the Mission: Impossible movies, but was there ever really a need to...
Tears in Rain (by Vangelis) 
I've been hearing that Vangelis passed away today at 79. Best known for scoring Blade Runner, Chariots of Fire and 1492: Conquest of Paradise, Vangelis had an incredibly unique sound. I also owned his Opera Sauvage, which had some other non movie related pieces that...

Fortress (by Queens of the Stone Age) 

When I think of Queens of the Stone Age, I only really remember one song of theirs – No One Knows. That song was featured in one of EA’s early Hockey games. Fortress, off of their 2017 Album, Villains, Is new to me. Having recently heard the song in Peacock’s Wolf Like Me, I loved the feel of it and added it to my current YouTube Playlist.

Your heart is like a fortress
You keep your feelings locked away
Is it easier?
Does it make you feel safe?

You wander through the darkness
Of wilderness behind your eyes
I know you’re afraid
But you gotta move on

Every fortress falls
It is not the end
It ain’t if you fall
But how you rise that says
Who you really are
So get up and come through
If ever your fortress caves
You’re always safe

I believe I know you
Yet, I don’t truly know myself
I pray you won’t feel as alone as I have felt

I don’t want to fail you so
I tell you the awful truth
Everyone faces darkness on their own
As I have done, so will you

Every fortress falls
It is not the end
It ain’t if you fall
But how you rise that says
Who you really are
So get up and go through
If ever your fortress caves
You’re always safe in mine

The Earth spins ’round the sun
And behold
Everything happens
Every night falls prey to sunrise

If your fortress is under siege
You can always run to me
If your fortress is under siege
You can always run

Every fortress falls
It is not the end
It ain’t if you fall
But how you rise that says
Who you really are
So get up and go through
If ever your fortress caves
You’re always safe in mine
If ever your fortress caves
You’re always safe in mine
If ever your fortress caves
You’re always safe in mine
Come on through
Come on through
