kaydeefalls: jen at the bridge, windswept (falling is like this)
[personal profile] kaydeefalls
Last of the vids for today! This one really ought to be for [community profile] festivids, because it's far too rare a fandom for anyone to notice it outside of the context of a fest. But that's okay. Because I love the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon more than I have the words to express, and I am more than willing to be the sole standard-bearer of my nonexistent fandom.

LYRICS:
Blue blue caravan
Winding down to the valley of lights
My true love is a man
Who would hold me for ten thousand nights
In the wild wild wailing of wind
He's a house 'neath a soft yellow moon.
So blue blue caravan
Won't you carry me down to him soon

Blue blue caravan
Won't you drive away all of these tears
For my true love is a man
That I haven't seen in years
He said, "Go where you have to
For I belong to you until my dying day"
So like a fool, blue caravan
I believed him and I walked away

Oh my blue blue caravan
The highway is my great wall
For my true love is a man
Who never existed at all
Oh he was a beautiful fiction
I invented to keep out the cold
But now, my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old
Oh my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old

Wow, I loved that! The music and lyrics worked beautifully with the source, and the second half of the last verse made me shiver.

Very sweet and sad and the song works so well with the clips.

Beautiful song, I haven't seen the movie (but I think I might see if it's on Netflix streaming, now) but I was engaged in vid. I know that technically you did an excellent job, but it was so seamless that at the time I didn't notice, because I was so engaged in watching.

It's been years since I've seen the movie (really need to remedy that), but oh, this is lovely.

This is a wonderful vid. And that summary... I'm left all melancholic.
