Hello Haven, Wondering if you have a favourite song from I Saw The Light? Love your blog btw.
Oh, yippee! What a great question!
My favorite song, just from the musical aspect, that is included in the film as a performance is “Honky Tonkin” at the beginning. I love that opening with the upright bass and the steel guitar and the fiddle. Such a unique sound.
As far as a favorite song in the scene as a whole, I think his Opry appearance with “Lovesick Blues” is so fun and joyous. Just look at his face, his eyes.
If I ponder which one is the most impressive from an acting standpoint, I would pick “Your Cheatin’ Heart” because it is amazing. What a stunning scene. It’s just gut-wrenching.
Of course, then there is him using “I Saw The Light” as a lullaby. Excuse me while I sob in the corner for a minute.
But with all those in mind, I LOVE the version of “Jambalaya” with the choir that is played during the credits. L-O-V-E.
But! The first scene with “Cold Cold Heart” is gorgeous! How can I leave that one out?!
So, I guess…I have a lot of favorites, for different reasons. :)
Thank you for asking!
