The poor man
Sometimes covers of songs are better than the originals, here are some examples:
- Guns n' Roses – Knockin' On Heaven's Door (Bob Dylan)
- Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
- At Vance – Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)
- Nightwish – Over The Hills And Far Away
- Sonata Arctica – Two Minds One Soul (Vanishing Point)
- Sonata Arctica – The Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Middler)
I love rain, specifically the sound it makes and I generally believe rain adds to the mood of some scenes in films. I feel that rain in real life should conform to similar cues.
Here are a few scenes from films that are made much more memorable due to the addition of rain:
- Matrix Revolutions, Neo vs Smith
- The Two Towers: Battle of Helms Deep
- High Fidelity: At the end when John Cusack is walking in the rain prior to diving in the mud
- Serenity: At the end, pre-flight in the cockpit with Mal and River. Awesome scene.
