I Know That Love Ballad Song Folks
18 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Hi America!!! I enjoyed watching one of my most favorite sitcom actors of all time, John Ritter from "Three's Company" (God bless you John wherever your soul may be in Heaven since you made me laugh so many times playing Jack Tripper). John was great in that romantic TV drama last night on CityTV channel called "The Last Fling" co-starring with that very beautiful actress, Connie Sellecca (John Tesh is a very lucky man). Oh how I wish she was mine. I remember watching her on "The Greatest American Hero" with William Katt and Robert Culp back in the 1980's when I was going to high school.

Anyways, I did some research and found out that beautiful love ballad song played during the lovemaking scene with John Ritter and Connie Sellecca's characters. It was a very mellow soothing stylish love song. I loved it. I mean, that's the kind of song musical groups today (2005 era) should be playing. The soundtrack was "Par Avion" (a.k.a "...here comes the night, here comes the dreaming of you...") sung by 70's/80's progressive rock band called Mike & The Mechanics. Did you know that the members of this band played with Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel? That's why when the song was being played, it automatically reminded me of Phil Collins' style of music. It evokes such incredible feelings and imagery of fantasy love, Southern California sunshine, moonlight romance and deep sentimental meaning. You know, like the way Phil Collins sounded like in moody background synthesizer scenes on Michael Mann's "Miami Vice" starring Don Johnson as Det. Sonny Crockett. Very cool music. And this song "Par Avion" just took me back to the 80's Miami Vice era with its cool slow synthesizer soft beat kind of stylish sound. Excellent music and a great choice for a soundtrack, even with any post-2005 romance movie, whether feature-length blockbuster or TV movie of the week.

Cheers,

A.R. Singh Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Friday, February 18, 2005
