There's something about the following scenario: a beautiful voice surrounded by a good orchestra performing a gorgeous song, that simply makes me want to listen to it over and over and over... it can be either an Opera, a Broadway Song or a charming Bossa (it doesn't matter), that's the same feeling I have every time I watch certain movies (in that case, not just any movie, but some specific ones...I can think of a couple right now: Modern Times, Billy Elliot, Blade Runner, E.T., Lolita, Hable con Ella, Butch & Cassidy, The curious Case of Benjamin Button, Amarcord, Cinema Paradiso, The Lives Of Others... and so on). It just feels like seeing it again... and again...
