    Strange or not but I also love to watch this movie. 🙂 My opinion often does not coincide with the opinion of the critics. Especially if that criticism applies to the things that are dear to me and understood as the simple truth… 😉

    The movie might not be Gone With The Wind, but why must it be?
    I’ll always remember the edible shades whenever I hear the song or talk about the movie. LOL!
    Such carefree times!
    The soundtrack is wonderful I agree, all those Olivia songs (Livin’ In Desperate Times coming?), and then that Patti Austin one as well (which you’ve already posted)!

    I love Olivia Newton-John and have always been a huge fan of this song, but I have to admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of the 12″ remix. I dislike the way it starts, there’s some annoying repetition in a couple of parts, and overall it seems under mixed. But that being said, it sounds great, and I still love the original song. Thank you for posting this and the other ONJ music. Loved the mix for Soul Kiss!

    I always loved this mix. I remember the first time I heard it was actually on KJ 103 FM in Oklahoma City back in those days it was really cool when the Top 40 station played a 12″ version. This 12″ was one of the first I ever bought 🙂

    These cam out great! Thanks for doing them. I was wondering if you happen to have the Disconet Version of this song? Is kind of the same as the 12″ but, yet different.

    Somehow missed this as a kid. The 12″ not the song. Love the song one of my favs by Olivia. Loved the movie even if it was cheesy. Need to find it on DVD.
