Welcome back Ladies and Gentlemen, so glad you are still sharing such gorgeous songs and I hope you enjoy these last two days of Love Is In Da Blog. WOW, only one day more and March is here. Where is all that time gone?
I am asking myself the same when it comes to my music choice today. The film I want to feature is 1994’s “Four Weddings and a Funeral” which introduced me to a new English expression: It’s the F… word and that film is the reason why for many years I never realised how rude it is. Well, my bad ;-).
I loved it and saw it several times in the cinema. I was in my second year of studying social work and didn’t only love this comedy because it had great humour but also because they depicted deaf and gay characters. I am sure there have been films before which did that but I never saw a comedy that did it in such a loving way. If this “Love Is In Da Blog” would be about poetry I would choose to showcase Auden’s “Funeral Blues” which made me a life-long Auden fan (who would have known that I moved into an area where he went to school). But it is about music so it’s going to be “Chapel of Love” which is of course not Elton John’s song but I love his version in the film.
And I love the credits of the film where “Chapel of Love” is played and whenever I hear the song I think of all those couples who made it, in the end, may it be in reality or in fantasy ;-). That video probably makes no sense to anyone who hasn’t seen the film but hey, just enjoy the song then!!!!
