|02:21 am - WAIII!! Free Willy nostalgia!!|
sweet_gable wrote an entry on Michael Jackson, which got me remembering this one song I used to love by him. It's the theme song from the movie Free Willy, "Will You Be There". The movie's about an orphaned boy, Jesse, who meets this Killer Whale (Orca) named Willy at an aquarium. A dilinquent himself, Jesse finds a friend in Willy and Willy, whom up until this point disobeyed all orders and attempts to train him by the trainers, found a similar companion in Jesse. Through a series of events, Jesse finds out about a plot by the owner of the aquarium to kill Willy and collect the insurance money since Willy's disobediance costs him money and his refusal to listen to the trainers means that they can't put on shows to make money. Jesse, determined to save his friend, takes on the task of returning Willy to the ocean where he can be reunited with his family.
At the time when I first watched this movie, I didn't know of Michael Jackson's fame nor of his controversies, I just loved the film and the song. So off I went snooping for downloads. It took some digging, but I found it!! Weeeeeeee~!! Childhood nostalgia when the world was more simple and good and evil were as clear as black and white =*-*=
Like the river jordan
And I will then say to thee
You are my friend
Like you are my brother
Love me like a mother
Will you be there?
Tell me will you hold me
When wrong, will you scold me
When lost will you find me?
But they told me
A man should be faithful
And walk when not able
And fight till the end
But I'm only human
Everyone's taking control of me
Seems that the world's
Got a role for me
I'm so confused
Will you show to me
You'll be there for me
And care enough to bear me
Hold Me (show Me)
Lay your Head Lowly (Lowly)
Softly Then Boldly (Yeah-ah)
Carry Me There (I'm Only Human)
Lead Me (Hold Me)
Love Me And Feed Me (Yeah Yeah Yeah)
Kiss Me And Free Me (Yeah-ah)
I Will Feel Blessed
Carry Me Boldly (Carry me)
Lift Me Up Slowly (Yeah-ah)
Carry Me There (I'm Only Human)
Save Me (Save Me)
Heal Me And Bathe Me (Lift Me Up, Lift Me Up)
Softly You Say To Me
I Will Be There (I Will Be There)
Lift Me Up Slowly
Carry Me Boldly (Yeah-ah)
Show Me you Care (Show me you care)
Lay Your Head Lowly (Get Lonely Sometime)
Softly Then Boldly (I Get Lonely, Yeah-ah)
Carry Me There (Will You Be There)
Love Me And Feed Me (Lift Me Up, Hold Me Up, Lift Me Up Sometime)
Kiss Me And Free Me (Up Sometime)
I Will Feel Blessed (Yeah-ah)
I LOVE FREE WILLY! ..AND THIS SONG TOO. ^^
It's funny, I actually just watched it like 2-3 weeks ago.
I know..now that I'm a grown up, if I tell my friend I like this movie they'll probably call me a retard. gah. I want to be 5 again =P
Really? I have no problems telling people about shows I liked when I was a kid and still like today. I find those kind of shows brings back a certain...simplicity that's sorely lacking my life these days. Everything's got two damn sides, gotta listen to the argument of both stupid sides, gotta take into consideration of all the people involved, blah blah blah, well once in awhile I don't WANT to think about the other side dammit!!
lol so THAT'S what the movie was about..!! i remember watching free willy at school in grade one/two.. and i can honestly say i have no clue about the plot except maybe the part where jesse was trying to "free willy".. and then the jumping over the rock scene lol.
and.. wow i don't recall the song sounding like that. is that really michael jackson? i remember the voice being a little smoother. lol. and less pitchy and annoying. LOL.
