This week’s song pick:

Tangerine Dream

“Loved by the Sun”

This is from the movie “Legend” with Tom Cruise, Mia Sarah, and Tim Curry from 1985. I chose this song because “Legend” was a favorite movie growing up and the song really is beautiful to me. The vocals are by Jon Anderson. The video quality isn’t perfect on this one, but we purchased the Blue-ray movie from Amazon and it’s quite amazing and roughly $10 which I thought was fairly cheap.

-Lyrics-

I’ve seen the mystics play there
Once or twice but I knew they had a reason
Enchantment plays it’s cards all right
Hand in hand with the workings of the seasons

Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to love for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Loved by the sun, loved by the sun
Loved

Two and two go so close together
Whether there is hope that is torn apart
In the words of all that’s singing
Hand in hand the beginning is at the start

Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Loved by the sun
Loved by the sun
Loved

Who sings of all of love’s eternity
Whose shines so bright
In all the songs of love’s unending spells

Only lightning strikes all that’s evil
Teaching us to love for goodness sake
Hear the music of love eternal
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to love for goodness sake

Sweet songs of youth, the wise, the meeting of all wisdom
Sweet songs of youth, the wise, the meeting of all wisdom
Sweet songs of youth, the wise, the meeting of all wisdom
Sweet songs of youth, the wise, the meeting of all wisdom
To believe in the good in man.
To believe in the good in man.
To believe in the good in man.


The soundtrack with the all the full songs from the movie can be purchased here on Amazon, but it’s pricey. If you buy one of the other cheaper versions, you probably won’t get all the original songs.

    I really liked this movie when I saw it for the first time. Funny, Tom Cruise doesn’t even look that much older now compared to then. When I watched the movie I guess I didn’t pay that much attention to the sound track. The music is truly beautiful. 🙂
