Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi deprecabili e assurdi, trovati conservati, per strani motivi, nel mio personale etere.
Vediamo oggi cosa esce fuori... 🙂
The The - Love Is Stronger Than Death
Questo è il primo caso di Perla Dimenticabile che forse rinnego, nel senso che non è così orribile e dimenticabile come le precedenti.
La canzone non è malvagia e fa sfondo a uno dei film (Nowhere in originale ma Ecstasy Generation in italiano...sic) di un regista che stimo molto, Gregg Araki.
Nonostante egli non abbia mai ricevuto i giusti premi per i suoi lavori, questi ultimi hanno spesso fotografato realtà giovanili alle quali il resto dello showbiz non ha mai dato il giusto risalto.
Love Is Stronger Than Death is a song from The The's album Dusk. It was written by Matt Johnson, the only constant member of The The. Johnson wrote this song following the death of his brother. In his depression, he found that writing this song was therapeutic for him.
The title is a paraphrase of a biblical quote: "Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame." (Song of Solomon 8:6).
The song is also featured on the soundtrack to the Gregg Araki movie Nowhere, and plays over the film's closing credits.
is a 1997 American black comedy drama film written and directed by Gregg Araki and starring James Duval and Rachel True as Dark and Mel; a bisexual teen couple.
The film is part of a series of three films by Araki nicknamed the "Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy". Other films in that trilogy are Totally Fucked Up (1993) and The Doom Generation (1995), with Nowhere being the third and last. The film is highly sexual and contains scenes of graphic violence.
The film is notable in that it features a variety of actors who had, at the time, not yet reached their current level of stardom, including Ryan Phillippe, Mena Suvari, Kathleen Robertson, and Denise Richards.
As in other films by Araki, various celebrities from the past 40 years make cameos, including Shannen Doherty, Charlotte Rae, Debi Mazar, Jordan Ladd, Christina Applegate, Jeremy Jordan, Jaason Simmons, Beverly D'Angelo, Eve Plumb, Christopher Knight, Traci Lords, Rose McGowan, John Ritter, Staci Keanan, Devon Odessa, Chiara Mastroianni, the Brewer twins and Brian Buzzini.
