Saturday evenings wouldn’t be complete without watching Gilmore Girls.  Next to Friends this is the show that really makes me happy.  I really love the Lorelai & Rory tandem.  And lately I’ve found myself ripping off my DVD collection so I’d get to watch it again.  The past 2 weekends were practically spent with these girls.  I love their comedic timing, the endless conversation, the right drama and I have to say the unique cast.  Everyone has their own character and you’ll love all of them.  From Taylor to Sookie to Luke to Lane and Rory’s love interests from Tristan to Dean to Jess and Logan.

And how can I even forget the music by Sam Phillips is the best.  It matches the theme and talking about the music, I really love the opening credits.  Carole King’s “Where you lead?” is just as perfect as the mother-daughter tandem.



As I was making this post, I’ve checked news about the show and visited the Wikipedia site and found out that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino might actually make a movie out of it.  Like most of the fans of the show I really didn’t like how the network WB ended the 7th and last season.  That strengthens a more reason for them to come up with a movie.  I hope this one pushes through I am already disappointed with the bad news about Friends the Movie.

Well, like I’ve said these past weeks were spent with the Gilmores and I’m really glad that I took time to rip off those DVDs because I was reminded of Macy Gray’s I Try.  How could I have forgotten how beautiful this song is?  So for those who have missed this song, I am sharing it to you guys!

This is how badly I missed the show.  Please producers make that movie please!



Games, changes and fears

When will they go from here?

When will they stop?

I believe that fate has brought us here

And we should be together

But were not

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep it cool but I’m fiendin.

I try to say goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it, it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free

But I’m just a prisoner of your love

I may seem alright and smile when you leave

But my smiles are just a front

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep my cool but I’m fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession

May I be your possession?

Boy I need your touch

Your love kisses and such

With all my might I try

But this I can’t deny

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep my cool but I’m fiendin

I try to say good bye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

I have been a big fan of Gilmore Girls… and I have been looking for this song, “How to Dream” by Sam Phillips for years.  (I didn’t know the song until last sunday)… Well, I tried to look for it but I’m not that successful then. 

 

Until last Thursday April 4 I heard it again. Then, I bugged my friend Lanie for help.  I tried the internet, too.  Made a lot of comments to various blogs, asked from where I can find the song.  Then, I Googled it and luckily, Google made a very helpful reference to the GilmoreGirls.org, and I browsed every song until I have landed to Season 4 and found my song…

 

It’s really hard to look for a song which you don’t know the lyrics, the singer, and the song title.  And it being years ago, I had the trouble pinpointing from what actual Season and episode I heard the song.

 

I’m really happy that I have found this song… I can’t find the right words to say… I’m just totally happy right now.

 

Hope you like it like I do!
