Cheek to Cheek...

This may be a lazy post you are for warned.....

Since exams are soon I've now placed myself on a self imposed House arrest so that I can study. So I intend studying but why study when procrastinating is so much more easier? But anyways I did study and actually understood stuff that seemed like it was written in arameic and you needed to solve a rubics cube to unlock its secrets. So on saturday night I was at home (sad hey who stays on home on a saturday? I assure you I dont have a comic collection nor do I refer to myself In the third person... Im fairly normal.) so decided to watch the Green Mile. Its one of my al time favorites and is an awesome movie, so I highly recommend it to those of you who havent seen it. Though If you thought Too Fast too Furious or one of its sequels were oscar worthy than please dont watch the Green Mile, it may cause Cerebral Hemorrhaging and you may actually go blind, so for those please STAY AWAY!

Was a great movie and throughly enjoyed it though hate watching a movie on SABC because the adverts ruin it and make an already long movie titanic (No no not that movie with the big boat... concentrate focus! there we go now continue reading:) So there was this song in the movie "Cheek to Cheek" By Fred Astaire and since that night I cant get it out of my head. Its a wonderful song and usually I get irritated when a song clings to my brain but with this song the minute i like voice the words i get happy its like weird.

So decided to check the lyrics and they to me and simple yet beautiful and romantic here read it for yourself:

Heaven, I'm in Heaven,
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak;
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek.

Heaven, I'm in Heaven,
And the cares that hang around me thro' the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek.

Oh! I love to climb a mountain,
And to reach the highest peak,
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek.

Oh! I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek,
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek.

Dance with me
I want my arm about you;
The charm about you
Will carry me thro' to Heaven

I'm in Heaven,
and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak;
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.

I dont know am I being a hopeless romantic or am I exaggerating? you decide. But I think its beautiful. If reading is not your thing (Why in the blue hell are you reading blogs then? ) Then watch Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers Dance Cheek to Cheek Enjoy :) I am so going to dance with someone just like this one day if im so lucky :)

I want to Dance Now

almira said...

I hope we all get to dance with someone like that someday K~Man. I stayed home Saturday to study, so did most of my friends. Your not a nerd, as long as you dont do it every saturday lol. There is always a tyme to play, and a time to be serious.


Raghav said...

yup that is one awesome movie.

ps procrastination is so much more fun than studying.

Infinium said...

Now i ask you, whats so wrong about referring to oneself in the third person hey??? there's nothing wrong with it, sometimes it helps you sort things out...

The MZ hath Spoken...

Waseem said...

haha loved the comment about cerebral haemoragging (sp?), I havent watched too fast too furious on principle. Apparently its better than the first if thats a consolation to me.

Green mile was an amazing movie, one of Tom Hanks best

Nadz said...

Lol MJ you too funny.
Its nice to stay at home and relax on a saturday night,i need to try that again sometime soon.

Ahmed said...

That is a good song. I'll add Green Mile to my netflix queue, others also told me it was good...I had just totally forgot about the movie.

The Green Mile is a powerful movie. I still can't believe it is based on a Stephen King book.

Liking a song that is stuck in your head is quite unusual, especially when you have friends who are professional irritating-song-in-head-advertisers. Also a sign that your head is a nice place to be. Gotta be useful in exam time. Congratulations.

The K-man said...

OH and you guys what about the song lyrics ?

The K-man said...

lobelia's Student: It is a very powerful movie pity it was up against such strong competiion when it was nominated for best picture. My head is nice in the winter snowy and picturesque, and in spring you can smell the jasmine you should visit sometime :)

Infinium said...

oi oi oi oi... K-Man: let us leave the MZ's problems out of this blog... or any other blog for that matter of fact...

But then again, What Problems??? I cant remember any???

We must have a chat... Thou shalt have to remind me of them...
