It's the funny funny feeling down... in your heart


This is a junebug. And this is how much I like Junebug.

Heaven. You know how much I love the movie, and this is by far my favorite review of it. Don't you ever get tired of upholding such a standard?

Excellent review indeed. I watched it again recently, and it made me cry! It was one of those moments where two of the characters are talking and the camera starts to cut from one room to the next, and the voices are reduced to echoes as the camera observes an eerily empty, newly cleaned bedroom. I don't know why, but that had me in tears. Weird.. I guess it's just. that. good.

That's very sweet, thanks. I had a mission to evangelise. There was all sorts of stuff I'd love to have got in there — those shots you're talking about, David, and that lovely business with Johnny and the VCR, and Ashley and the broken cat, and Eugene's screwdriver, and cigarettes, and the great, great hymn scene. But Telegraph readers are just going to have to discover all that for themselves. What a film!

"Let it innnnnnnn...."

I would like to keep singing the song, but I always get distracted by Alessandro while it's being sung during the credits, and so I don't know the words. I only know his beauty.

I love the shots of empty rooms.

I love the look on her face when she realizes that her husband actually does have roots here, has a whole past in this town that doesn't necessarily match the cosmpolitan thing they've got going on. I love her stroking the back of his head at the end of the movie, after he's claimed he's glad they're out of there.

It's a bright
It's a light
It's a so outta sight
It's a feeling all right, morning noon or night

It's the best thing in life that you don't have to buy
It's a funny funny feeling down in your heart

It's a neat
It's a treat
It's a something that's sweet
It's the one thing in life that will never be beat
It's a once it's inside you it loses the key
That's that funny funny feeling down in your heart

It's a lu uh uh uh ove
It's a lu uh uh uh ove

Let it in
For the beat of your heart will keep the rhythm
Let it smile

`Aaw, Joe!'

It's a pin
It's a friend
It's a how have you been
It's a `I'm looking forward to seeing you again'

It's a laugh
It's a grin
It's a let it begin
With that funny funny feeling down in your heart

It's a walk through the park
It's a kiss in the dark
It's a vow made by two that they never will part
It's a spark that you feel from the moment it starts
Known as that funny funny feeling down in your heart

It's a lu uh uh uh ove

It's a lu uh uh uh ove
It's a lu uh uh uh ove
It's that funny funny feeling down in your heart

Let it in
To your heart and you'll feel this funny feeling
Let it in
And together we'll join in harmour love

Let it in
For the beat of your heart will ke
