Song Challenge (Music That Means Something)Day 2. Still.

Thank  you  to  my way   blog  sister  Ritu  of  But  I  Smile Anyway for  nominating  me   for  this  challenge. She  knows  I  love a  challenge   and  I  love  music.

The rules are:
Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)
Post the name of the song and video.
Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.

Who  shall I  nominate, I would like to Nominate Sue Vincent of Daily Echo because I would love to know her taste in music.

And Lorraine at Lorraine’s Freudian slip.

Day two. I choose to share the song Still from the film Dogma, written and sung by Alanis Morissette.

The film is about a narrowly avoided Apocalypse. Alanis plays the part of God and Alan Rickman played the Angel Gabriel. I shall tell you no more but I can highly recommend the film. 

The words are on the video and once you have heard and read them you will see, I hope , why I think this song is of worth and means a lot to me. Especially with todays news in the middle East in fact all over the world everyday.

    Great film! One of Kevin Smith’s “New Jersey” series of movies (he plays Silent Bob in those films).

    Yup, great movie, and interesting casting Alanis Morrisette as God. Alan Rickman played Metatron, one of the Seraphim (as opposed to Gabriel, an archangel) – Metatron was “the Voice of God,” because, as Metatron explained, to really hear God would be more than a human being could survive.

        I know because I’ve read reviews of the movie and it was also mentioned in some of the online obits for Alan Rickman – but I found it difficult to make out the name as he announces it in the movie. It’s a fun role for Alan Rickman – and reading this makes me want to watch it again! BTW, besides the inspired casting of Alanis Morrisette, and the fun of watching Matt Damon and Ben Affleck as two malevolent angels who want to bring about the end of the universe (which Alan Rickman’s angel is working to prevent), I also particularly enjoyed Chris Rock’s character as a prophet or saint – another one of the good guys, anyway.
