was won by a GENIUS, Annie Lennox (written with Fran Walsh and Howard Shore).
It was in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. In addition to my passion for Annie Lennox I will confess, I am a bit of a LOTR fan. I don't always love movie music, but sometimes it's just enjoyable stuff, like this.
Anyway, I've been really enjoying this song lately.
(I have to add a geek note. Though I make no claims to musical competence, it seems to be that Howard Shore did some amazing things with the sound tracks of these movies. I have no idea what he is doing these days but I hope he isn't starving in some tiny, drafty flat with a bunch of kids).
OK, and it's only barely Friday but here are 55 words.
I love my country.
I wish I could be proud of my fellow citizens, all of them,
but I can’t.
I love our rights.
I love our freedoms.
I believe in personal responsibility.
I believe we are our brothers’ keepers.
I hate the pettiness and prejudices recently brought to light.
I can’t wait for Tuesday!
