So here is the video for 'A Thousand Years' and it's cutsie.
Any Twilight fan will appreciate the use of the book cover images in this from the apple to the white flower to the red ribbon to the chess board. The video and song lyrics 'One Step Closer' suggests that this song covers the journey of Edward and Bella to I'm guessing the wedding night. After all, I see a sign on a broken piece of wood and I'm pretty sure I'm getting a sublimal message about headboard-busting sex with Edward.
It's a lovely enough song, and I think Christina Perri has a beautiful voice. Can you sense a 'but' coming on from me?
She got to see the movie. She got to see the movie and then write a song inspired BY THE MOVIE, but I just don't see (or feel) an overwhelming link to the movie with this song. I think I've just seen too much fan art in the fandom that expresses a much deeper passion. I mean UAB and Kassie's accounts of seeing 'Eclipse' via Oprah conveyed a lot more passion and excitement about the E/B love story than this song did.
And I'm a little fuzzy on her use of the expression 'for a thousand years' as a song title. Oh, I could make total sense of it if I wanted to, but I don't want to have to work that hard. I wanted to be kind of sitting here watching this video saying, WOW but I didn't.
It's still a lovely song. And I'm sure it will grow on me once I have seen the movie.
