Music And Lyrics

That is my new movie of the week! (since when do I have a "Movie of the week"?)

I've bought the DVD quite days ago but I couldn't watch it (wouldn't, to be honest) because I also bought Heroes Season One (up to 18 episodes) and The OC season Four (up to 8 episodes).
So I was all caught up to those DVDs until they're over. Now that they have... I soon realized that I should have watched Music and Lyrics first. This is my favourite movie of the week! (Hm.. well.. Spider-Man 3??? Yap. Beat even our little spidey)

Along with Drew Barrymore in it, this may as well be my most favourite musical movie ever! Hugh Grant. I always love Hugh Grant, even when he keeps shaking what his mama gave him. And in this movie, he was in amazingly great chemistry with Drew. And Drew, I couldn't see her as the girl from 50 First Dates (in which film she performed the best, IMO, so I always picture her as the cute girl with short-term-memory-loss)

This movie is all about finding our love. Hugh Grant played Alex Fletcher, the not-so-famous personil of the so-a-while-ago-famous band named PoP! Say he was in a mid-life crisis and was craving for a lyricist to help him create a song in a week's time. He encountered Sophie (Drew) almost accidentally, who was a born lyricist.

Together they created one great song and lyrics. It was called "Way Back into Love". The lyrics was awesome, the inspiration was just as well. The melody was mind-hypnotizingly entertaining.

Right after I finished the whole movie, I was able to sing that song. Wow! I mean. You should hear the song. That piano intro.. it killed me.

Em.. The lyrics. How could I forget? Hehehe.. Here it goes :

Way Back Into Love
(duet by : Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore)
(yes.. Drew Barrymore sings the song!)
(emm.. actually Hugh Grant and Haley Bennett also sing this song)
(but WTH, they suck! :P)
(Oh, I can't shut up, can I?)
(Ok, just read! The meaning!)

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking from someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And If you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end

The other great song from the movie is : "Don't Write me Off" performed by Hugh Grant. You can see the complete list of the soundtrack and some demo-s of them here.
