I was talking to wayabovebrooklyn this morning about albums I can listen to straight through, and I had forgotten about this. Like every other artsy queer in America, Amelie was a big part of my life for maybe 14 months, but even though I’ve grown up and stopped being ridiculous, everything about it is still good so I feel wholly justified in stanning for this soundtrack.
Also, I’m trying to make a film scores playlist, so y’all holler if you have any favorites.
The first time I saw Downton Abbey I thought this was one of the most amazing themes I’d ever heard for a television show…but it fades away oddly. The actual show starts at such an awkward place in the score.
But this. THIS. This is the move right here. The version with lyrics is ohkay I guess (they used it during a dance on DWTS last night) but this is just straight up Victorian drama.
I feel like I should be manically cooking a meal for 17 people now.
