If there is one song in the entire world that I could listen on loop forever, it would be this song. This song appears in one of the best films in the world, In the Mood for Love, where it is repeated several times throughout the film’s fairly small soundtrack. Even if you haven’t seen the film, this song creates a feeling of longing. The simplicity of this song still causes moments of great sorrow and pain. Music is a very important aspect of film and can create emotions that the scenes cannot by themselves. This film is not like most romantic movies, as it has a great deal of sorrow in it. There are essentially no happy endings in this film. The film is a masterpiece and the music in it, especially this song, help the film reach this status. If I could have a soundtrack for my life, this song would be on it. This song is timeless. It’s poetry without words and the soul of romance. As long as there is love, there will be sad stories. As long as there are sad stories, there will be beautiful music. Music that makes us fall in love and out of love as well.
