welcome to the rock

Me, on finally listening to tracks from Come From Away: I now have that much more reason to be proud when a stranger says I sound like a Maritimes lady. I know there's a significant difference between what people say my accent makes me sound like (a Nova Scotian) and a Newfoundlander, but still. :) 3q 3q 3q

I've alternately grinned and cried at this soundtrack tonight. Hot /shells/, why didn't I listen to this ages ago? Is the young black man openly portrayed as feeling safe/happy/loving his time in Newfoundland intended as a nod to the Saint Lawrence in WWII story, as drawn from real life, or someone else's actual recollections of 2001's events, or both? And why ever do the combination of this music and certain lyrics make my Leigh want to speak up, loudly? She's an Ontarian with Cape Breton Nova Scotian family, there's a tenuous connection at best here, but she suddenly wants writing about. Maybe it's the Celtic influences all over the score, and the fiddles.

I am never going to get this out of my head! 3q 3q 3q 3q As if I didn't already have a major case of star eyes for Canada, and this is based on real events, and and and...

Tell me more!

I've been an unreconstructed Canada fangirl since I spent a year in bed listening to RCI (back in the 90s, when RCI was really lovely).

Whence the movie, or the soundtrack, or best of all both?

[Umm, errm, that Q was based on a quick IMDB check. Then I happened to do a NYT search and now I at least know what you're talking about. Newsfast may save my sanity but I have been disconnected from the mainstream of popular culture.]
