Musical Mondays: Lost Stars by Keira Knightley/Adam Levine

musicalmondays

If you’ve seen my review of Begin Again, you know how much I loved the movie, so I thought it was fitting to feature the movie’s main song today… mostly because I love it. I’m putting up the 2 versions of this song, the one sang by Keira Knightley and then the one done by Adam Levine. Please tell me which one is your favorite version, because I keep bouncing between the 2.

Please don’t see just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me reaching out for someone I can’t see
Take my hand let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’d be damned Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears and

God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
Woe is me, if we’re not careful turns into reality
Don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears and

God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark? ooh

And I thought I saw you out there crying, ooh
And I thought I heard you call my name, yeah, yeah
And I thought I heard you out there crying, oh
Just the same, oh, yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

God, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and this lamb is on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark? ooh

And I thought I saw you out there crying, ooh
And I thought I heard you call my name, ooh
And I thought I heard you out there crying, oh

But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

Movie of the Week: Begin Again

movie_2

This week I saw an awesome movie! My brother-in-law was listening non-stop to the Begin Again soundtrack, which prompt me and my sister to want to watch the movie, which we did, and loved it.

The format and concept of the movie is super unique, and the way it’s filmed was a plus for me, because it seemed like an amatour film at times, which added to the concept as well. And I just love the casting, because Mark Ruffalo is a genius and so is Keira Knightley. Adam Levine really surprised me, mostly because I didn’t even have a clue that he was in the movie.

I really loved the story about how these 2 characters found each other and helped each other become more themselves – does that make sense?!

The soundtrack is beyond awesome! Keira’s voice is not always spectacular, but the songs are beautifully written and all the songs have a meaning and a purpose on the storyline. It’s definitly worth having a listen to it – I need it for my phone ASAP.

Have you seen Begin Again? What did you think of this movie?
