Happy Saturday, everybody. Hope you’re enjoying your day. Again, it’s gloomy here. Thunder and lightening, it’s getting very exciting, indeed! Rain is great and of course there’s the petrichor that comes after it, but the precipitation is getting ridiculous by now. SO. MUCH. RAIN! Anyways, here’s today’s song of the day.
You know you grew up in the 90’s when you know the film The Swan Princess. It was one of my favorite princess movies as a kid, and it’s still one of my favorite all time animated films. As a non-Disney film, it’s obviously underrated. Then again, all Don Bluth films are except Anastasia.
Anyways, “Far Longer Than Forever” is the theme to The Swan Princess. It’s the romantically beautiful duet between Odette and Derek and um, it was NOMINATED FOR A GOLDEN GLOBE in 1995 for Best Original Song. It was nominated for good reason too.
In the film, Odette and Derek pledge their love to each other while singing the song. Despite factors that separate them, they believe their love can overcome any barrier between them. Ah, so beautiful!
