Big Dream


I am way behind on posting as the internet is still not working (according to my computer's start up menu, though here I sit typing on my blog, so go figure on the wonders of technology!)

Anyhoo, I FINALLY found a fabulous video of Samantha Mathis singing what just may be my favorite song of all time. I have wanted to get my hands on this little diddy to sing myself forever, and am once again grateful to that internet phenom You Tube for providing a place for all things obscure that needed a venue (as well as those that didn't but oh well.)

The song is called Big Dream (officially) or Maybe God's a Woman Too (by most of us who have been googling it for years trying to find a recording of it.) It is from a little Indy movie made in 1993 called The Thing Called Love starring River Phoenix (sadly in his last role) the aforementioned Ms. Mathis, K.T Oslin, several country music cameos (Trisha Yearwood and Pam Tillis to name a few) and then little known actors Sandra Bullock and Dermot Mulroney.

For some ridiculous reason this song was not included on the soundtrack, and until recently was mighty hard to come by. I can only guess there was a copyright issue that would not allow it on the album, since the song is the climatic opus which finally affords Ms Mathis's character her shot at stepping out from behind the bar and onto the coveted, mythic fame making stage at Nashiville's Bluebird Cafe.

Enjoy the listen!

So if your internet is down but you can still post does that mean that you don't need to pay for the connection any more??? That really is a virus that I would like to have ;-)
