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...

My Immortal (by Evanescence) 

There are some people out there have some magical voices. Amy Lee of Evanescence is one of these. My Immortal is a great song that starts off slow and then kicks up in the 2nd half. It’s a sweet piece that always makes me smile, even though the song itself is about a love lost. I wouldn’t mind finding out the backstory to how this song came to be.

From the 2003 Album, Fallen, here’s My Immortal.

Lyrics:

I’m so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
‘Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face, it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
All of me… me… me…
