CD Review: I love romantic movies. There's always that scene between the guy and the girl where one of them realizes that they have found the person of their dreams. Usually, in the movies (and sometimes in real life) the person who comes to this realization does so when it's almost too late. Enter Steve Northeast: A singer/songwriter/musician from Australia via New York, who has a simple, emotive song which is the perfect backdrop for that obligatory love scene between two characters who kiss too long in the rain, or re-unite at the last minute before a scheduled flight takes off at the airport.
This is the song that is played, at a loud volume, during that scene after one of the characters makes the revelation that the other has been dying to hear, but didn't think they would. It's got it all: the accessible lyrics; the poignant strings; the heartfelt vocals; and the dramatic drums that pound heavy and then soft for effect. It's destined to be in a major motion picture soundtrack.
Advice: Get this licensed to film and television and do NOT settle for a mere incidental background use. This song needs to be featured prominently.
