That Oscar should have gone to Randy Newman for When She Loved Me. Toy Story 2 Vs Tarzan? Cha... No freakin contest. (Plus, I mean, don't tell anyone, but I actually cried during that scene. My son, 3 at the time, had to console me. That is how much RNs song did for that scene, no words, only the song).

Re: VOTE FOR EVERWOOD!!!

grace0418 ·
Thanks you all! As if my brother being on the show wasn't enough reason for me to vote for "Everwood," tonight's episode had a lovely surprise... ...Our very own Mr. Neil Finn playing clearly in the background of a party scene ("Last to Know" - almost the entire song!). And at the end of the show they plugged One All and directed viewers to the record label's site for more information!!!! How awesome is that?!?! I think I better make a second post in the Neil Finn section. "Everwood"...

True, True, True! All true, and wonderful. I was honestly pondering the other day whether if I had to live with one artist's collections of music for the rest of my life if it would be Neil or E.C. So hard! What's funny, is that while they both continue to refresh the music scene again and again, they are both pretty controlled and "normal" in chord progressions and flow. What makes them different is not that they are so "out there", but that they are able to arise out of the trash we are...

Re: What where is "Ellis Island" in "HELP IS COMING" Afterglow song

The TV Page ·
From memory, it seems like 'Help Is Coming' was written about the wars in Eastern Europe in the 90's - like Kosovo, Croatia, etc. It was aimed at refugees, I think. I don't remember the exact country/region, and haven't listened to the song in a few years, but that's how I remember it. And Ellis Island was the immigrant destination for European settlers in the early 1900's. The scene in Godfather II, where young Vito Andolini lands & has his name changed to Corleone - that was Ellis Island.
