L'ombra è l'opposto del sole, ma si nutre di esso.
Un cielo grigio non genera ombre: nessun contrasto, nessun pensiero.

Against all Odds

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace. When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh. You're the only one who really knew me at all. How can you just walk away from me, when all I can do is watch you leave. Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears. You're the only one who really knew me at all. So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space. And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face. Ooh take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space. And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face. I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry. There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why. You're the only one who really knew me at all. So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space. And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face. Now take a look at me now, cos there's just an empty space. But to wait for you, is all I can do and that's what I've got to face. Take a good look at me now, cos I'll still be standing here. And you coming back to me is against all odds. It's the chance I've gotta take. Take a look at me now

Una bellissima canzone in un periodo denso di cose e passioni. Il film non è stato un granchè (oltretutto era un remake) ma mi ricordo ancora il bellissimo manifesto pubblicitario che ritraeva una scena girata a chichen-Itza poi non inserita nel montaggio finale. Lei era, ovviamente, bellissima e sull'onda di un successo clamoroso. Tornando alla canzone credo che sia stata la responsabile del vero successo del film. Anche ad anni di distanza non ha perso il suo fascino e lo smalto...credo sia veramente cantabile e bella ed è un peccato che Phil Collins sia quasi scomparso dalle scene del pop.
