Twilight and Mist – James Horner
I’ll start with the fantastic composer James Horner, he who composed all the Titanc (1997) soundtrack album – which is the best-selling primarily orchestral soundtrack in history, I wasn’t surprised to know that he is the one behind the music of My heart will go on (Celien Dion), since he composed one of my favorite melodies: Twilight and Mist (or “The Ludlows”) and it has a lyrics written by Brock Walsh.
The first time I heard it, was in my all time favorite drama movie Legends of the fall (1994). The film is wonderful, amazing and emotional, I totally recommend you to watch it if you are a drama sucker (I am also planning to write a review about it).
This music makes me feel carried away, it moves me every time I listen to it, and it leaves me with a mixed emotions of happiness, sorrow, romance, jealousy and loyalty simultaneously.
As evening fell, a maiden stood
At the edge of a wood.
In her hands lay the reins
Of a stallion.
And ne’er I’d seen a girl as fair,
Heard a gentler voice anywhere.
She belonged, belonged to another–
Yes, she belonged to
the twilight and mist.

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.”
I had stumbled by this remarkable quote from a movie which I can’t help myself but to think about it sometimes. I was moved and left confused, for sure I am willing to post about it soon, can you guess which movie is it from? 🙂
p.s – This blog is standing still, I have a few little stories which I read and I’m going to review/share here. studies have been keeping me in the corner for a while 😦
Have a lovely night wherever you are in the world 🌟🌙
This is one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies:
Movie -Leon: The professional
“You know why the moon’s so lonely?
She used to have a lover.
They lived in the Spirit World and every night they’d wander the skies together.
But one of the other spirits was jealous.
Trickster wanted the Moon for himself.
So he told Kuekuatsheu the Moon asked for flowers.
He told him to come to our world and pick her some wild roses.
Kuekuatsheu didn’t know that once you leave the Spirit World, you can never go back.
Now he’s trapped here.
Every night the Moon searches for him and every night he sees her in the sky and howls her name… but he can never touch her again.”
“Koo-koo-choo got screwed.”
“Kuekuatsheu. The Wolverine.”
