Music and Lyrics

I walked into the theater without expecting much from this movie. It’s advertised as a romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant as a washed up singer from the 80s and Drew Barrymore as a (not-so-young) woman who came out of nowhere to help him writing lyrics for his new song. As a matter of fact, the movie is indeed a romantic comedy with music and songs sound like the 80s added up with some up-to-date tunes. The plot is easily predictable and somehow unreasonable, but who cares! In the middle of typical Hollywood-style script, I found myself enjoying the movie with all funny elements and the songs and music that featured in the movie. It’s good for me not to think too much of the story-line and enjoy the weird but unbelievably good chemistry between Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. I am also amazed to learn that Hugh Grant could really sing and do it well as he performed all of his featured songs in the movie by himself. The duet of "Way Back to Love" is beautiful and as the name of the movie stated both Music and Lyrics should be in good combination otherwise a song wouldn’t turn out to be a song.

Watch carefully for the "pop-up" in the music video at the end credit. It’s really enjoyable.

4 stars out of 5 – recommend to everyone who loves music and enjoy a romantic-comedy movie. It’s worth a ticket just to listen to the music.
Way Back Into Love

I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I’ve been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can’t seem to move on
 
I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I’ve been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind
 
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh
 
I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I’ve been searching but I just don’t see the signs
I know that it’s out there
There’s got to be something for my soul somewhere
 
I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me throught the night
I could use some direction
And I’m open to your suggestions
 
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end
 
There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation
 
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I’ll be there for you in the end
