common bond between '40s movies and '80s songs, 31 January 2006
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The movie "It's a Wonderful Life" is one of my favorite holiday movies,despite realizing that it was popular twenty-nine years before I was even born. That can also be a movie to think about any other time of the year besides Christmas. I'm saying that because recently, I've been doing some personal research on a bond between that movie and the lyrics from a song from 1985 by Corey Hart entitled "Never Surrender". I know it seems strange to think that there's a common link between an old holiday movie and a song that won't be heard on the radio for nearly forty years after that film's popularity, but I think there is something symbolic between them. I tell you how some of the lyrics goes:

Just a little more time is all we're asking for

Cause just a little more time could open closing

doors

Just a little uncertainty can bring you down

And nobody wants to know you now

And nobody wants to show you how

So if you're lost and on your own

You can never surrender

And if your path won't lead you home

You can never surrender

And when the night is cold and dark

You can see you can see light

Cause no can take away your right

To fight and to never surrender

If anyone reading this knows that song, you might find the reason why I think it's symbolic for other George Baileys out there.
