I've this crazy old notion that calls me sometimes saying this one's the love of your life

How I feel about it all: content*sigh* Bernie. :)
Soundtrack: Emmylou Harris - A Love That Will Never Grow Old
Yay!

I now have the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack. It's all country songs and lovely acoustic instrumentals. It's got Willie and Steve Earle and Rufus (RUFUS!) among others, and Emmylou singing a brand-new song with lyrics by none other than my Bernie.


Keeping on topic, I do not understand this, from here:


The "Brokeback" musical choices are as intriguing as the movie's plot. For example, while "A Love that Will Never Grow Old" is a brand-new song by Santaolalla and Elton John's lyricist Bernie Taupin, it would be nice to know if it was written specifically for the soundtrack of a film that tells the story of two men who fall in love -- and, if so, why a woman was chosen to sing the song.


Um? Because Emmylou Harris has the most amazing voice pretty much ever, that's why, and it fits the song very well.

I suppose it could be carried even further--why did they ask Bernie Taupin to write the song? So what if he's a brilliant poet? He's straight, Oh Em Gee!

For that matter, why not get Rupert Evert and RuPaul to play Jack and Ennis? [/sarcasm]

Perhaps the reviewer has forgotten that the original story was written by--get ready--a woman!
