Vangelis - Tears in Rain

I don’t know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody’s life; my life. All he’d wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.


The song for the “serenade” scene, “Wonderful World” by Sam Cooke, was selected by Harrison Ford himself. Director Peter Weir said that since Ford had to sing and dance to it, he should be able to choose which song he wanted to use for that scene. However the version of the song heard in the film is not Sam Cooke’s original, but performed by Cooke sound-alike Greg Chapman.
