Tito Gobi's singing of theme-song is haunting me.
29 January 2001 | by (Winnipeg and Chicago) – See all my reviews

I faintly remember this film ... and mostly because of the main theme song, the melody of which haunts me. Of course, Tito Gobi is the star as far as that theme song is concerned. I should mention that several month ago I did connect with a webpage that offered a short DEMO of Tito Gobi singing this Glass Mountain song... but I cannot find it again. Perhaps you, the reader, can tell me the URL of this website. I do not remember the plot of this film; just the music. Greetings!
