The Winner Takes It All…

It is very wired how can this song makes very much sense now.. only now … the sense that it didn’t make long long ago when I was a child and when the real story of my life didn’t begin yet.

It is kind of touching how you suddenly listen to an old song and never thought it was meant to make your long story short.. as short as 5 minutes. A song of life for the story of my life… Yes indeed ABBA, The winner takes it all, The loser standing small, Beside the victory, That’s her destiny !

I love the intro… heavenly composed and heavenly flows !

Enjoy listening and wondering with your own nostalgia and your own demons… don’t we all?!

 

Lyrics:

I don’t want to talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play
The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny
I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I’d be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules
The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It’s simple and it’s plain
Why should I complain
But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed
The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all
I don’t want to talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You’ve come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all
So the winner takes it all
And the the loser has to fall
Throw a dice, cold as ice
Way down here, someone dear
Takes it all, has to fall
It seems plain to me

“Collateral Beauty”… A movie review

Collateral_Beauty_poster

Director: David Frankel

Writer: Allan Loeb

Stars: Will SmithEdward NortonKate Winslet

Collateral Beauty: 2016

The charm of this story comes after a couple of meaningful words said by Will Smith in the intro. Words followed by silence … and here comes a whole world of silence filled with painful words detailing the tragedy he experienced .. you won’t miss a minute of it.

The idea of personalizing difficult meanings like; Love, Time and Death seems unique yet weird, and was somehow executed randomly and not very well written.

Despite the sadness and grief, you can sense the beauty in continued attempts to approach the three characters who supported Will Smith. It looked more about them than him. It looked more about us as we all may struggle with abandoned love or fight the devilish time or even not dying right.. !

Kate Winslet had a secondary role in that movie where in my opinion could have been done by any other actress, she didn’t really add herself to the role of a woman with a  dream that is getting far day by day from coming true.

A movie that literally manipulated me, and for that it will go in the one-time-watch-movies genre of mine. Left me wondering with a couple of hanging hot tears.
