Apparently. JAMBF says it's Common Knowledge. Why did I know this thread would lure you back...!jeanna wrote:Katrina? Of Katrina and the Waves?
Well heck, it worked, this is what matters. So what I have to prostrate myself on the ground & flail, Don't Mind Me, see if I waste subtlely on this lot again, (etcetcblahblah)...jeanna wrote:Yes. <G>moi wrote:(was it my painfully forlorn tumbleweed?)
A voice crying out in the desert.
I know, it's incredibly jarring, isn't it?jeanna wrote:I'm still stunned at hearing Walking on Sunshine in that scene. How bizarre. That's from like way back in the early 80s.
It makes a pretty big difference in the way the show feels, to my mind, esp since SR has an almost constant musical soundtrack, and the DVD choices were so lame.jeanna wrote:This difference in broadcast music as opposed to what is allowed on dvds just hit me again while watching the second season of "Sugar Rush" and just knowing that the David Gray, KT Tunstall, et. al. topical hit songs of the moment in the club scene will never make it to dvd.
It's not so subtle. Yeah, it's at her place with Dom, when they get back from the bar. And the music track's much louder, actually, than whatever they put into the DVD version: my take is that the music itself features as a kind of third presence here. Given it's a very obvious lesbian marking... I have to think that's deliberate: people may or may not associate what'shername & Walking in Sunshine with lesbians, but lang = lesbian, it's not avoidable.abzug wrote: Which scene is this song underscoring? When Helen and Dom are in the bar, or when they are back in her apt? (Sorry, can't download at work to review myself.) If it's the latter, that seems to ssubtly imply that Helen listens to lesbian singers at home. Very interesting....
I wouldn't say downgraded, just used differently. Either way it seems like a quite significant song choice, that's for sure, reflecting something key about Helen's subconscious. What I'm realizing as we rewatch S1 with a finetooth comb, is that there have been all these aural and visual clues of Helen's impending lesbianism. It's quite fun and rewarding to find them all.ekny wrote:so I'm not sure why this scene, an obviously important one, would perhaps be 'downgraded'? if I'm reading you right?
