I felt like making a list of threes…

Three Songs:
“To Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan, as covered by Billy Joel
“Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, as covered by Rufus Wainwright
(But, Jeff Buckley’s is good too.)

Three Albums:
Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, Henryk Gorecki
Agaetis Byrjun, Sigur Ros

Three Pictures:
One of the family.
One of the friends.

Three Books:
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Three Television Programs:
Arrested Development
Battlestar Galactica
House MD

Three Films:
It’s a Wonderful Life
Prince of Egypt

Three Foods:

I guess considering the nature of these types of things, this whole list is subject to change.

To Make You Feel My Love
Bob Dylan / Billy Joel
Covered in Greatest Hits Volume III

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

Click in the usual place to hear the song. Cheers.

    Prince of Egypt?

    My conclusion was that the studio execs wanted to target the Jewish/Christian/Secular audience in one swoop and make a bundle of cash. I wasn’t impressed with the “miracles when you believe” theme. It worked better for Cinderella.

    I could have also done without the theme song, the Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston duet, and the accompanying music video (God-awful!).

    I agree with you completely on all those points.

    And my liking of the film has nothing to do with any of that, or any of the usual reasons, I suspect.

    I don’t think I know how to explain it.
