I love The Cult. I know a lot of people don't and a lot of people do. Whatever. To each their own. Don't criticize my music and I won't make fun of you for listening to Ying Yang Twins, Faith Hill or Rage Against The Machine. Or any other musician you may like that I find preposterous. Anyway. I love this song not because it's in one of my favorite movies but because somewhere inside here, I have some sappy in me. There isn't much of it but there's some in there. I don't care for most typical love songs. Of course, there are exceptions like "Amazed" by Lonestar but mostly, blech. This song by The Cult though, to me, is a love song and one that I can not only tolerate but one I really like. The first time I heard it was years ago in the movie "Gone In 60 Seconds" (I love it!) and after that, I wanted to find the song and listen to it. I looked up the words and it became one of my favorites. It still is too. Back then, I was drawn to the song because I just really liked his voice and I liked the lyrics because they sounded cool. Silly huh? Then around 18, I was in a relationship and heard that song one day after not hearing it for a while. I thought differently about the lyrics that day. I wanted someone that I could feel that way about. I wanted someone to be with that, if I ever lost them, that I would feel what that song portrays about them. It's not that I wanted to be in the lyrics shoes, so to speak. I didn't want to fall in love and then lose them just so I could feel the words in real life. I just wanted that person to be with that I would hope to never lose but if I did, that I wouldn't be able to move on so easily. I didn't really want the misery of losing a love I couldn't move on from but just the love that I would hate so much to lose. If that makes sense. And I realized the guy I was with wasn't that guy and never would be. He was special in a way and I grew, changed and learned a lot about myself, life and relationships with him. I'd never want him to be a part in my life again though and though I was sad after I broke up with him, it only lasted a short time. Now, I have an amazing guy in my life. We've been together for two and a half years and known each other for three and a half. I wouldn't want to know how I'd deal if we didn't work out or if something ever happened to him. I don't know if there is such a thing out there as a love you can never move on from if it was lost in some way and really, I don't want to know either way anymore.
Oh and it's purely coincidence that Nicolas Cage is in both of the movies that these songs are featured in. Lol.
