Love Actually

This movie, Christmas or not, never fails to make me swoon. I am such a hopeless romantic, I still get goosebumps after the nth time of watching this movie! Geez! I just watched a rerun on TV. I would love to own a sound track of this. I still find Karl gorgeous! Yumyum!

Rodrigo Santoro played Karl

This is going to be my featured song of the moment from this movie. Lovely!

Artist: Joni Mitchell Lyrics
Song: Both Sides Now Lyrics

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, i've looked at cloud that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things i would have done but clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions i recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real; i've looked at love that way.
But now it's just another show. you leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know, don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions i recall.
I really don't know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "i love you" right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, i've looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions i recall.
I really don't know life at all.

Wouldn't you say that every woman who watched the movie felt what Emma Thompson's character was going through in this particular scene when "Both Sides Now" was playing?

And I agree... Karl is mega-hot! Yummy-licious! :)

Jennie: That is so true! To think that Emma Thompson is a superb actress, my heart was just aching for her!

My fave part was when this guy was confessing his love for Keira Knightley who (alas!) married his best friend. It was non-verbal but it was really, really touching!
