Beauty and the Beast is love.
I am so in love with Catherine and Vincent and they make me fall in love and believe in love again and again despite some unfortunate circumstances in the past. Watching them makes me forget that love hurts. ————>weh!!
Besides the story itself and these actors’ chemistry, I also love the show’s soundtrack.
Every now and then, they feature some really good covers on the show and so far, they haven’t failed in that aspect yet as well. 3 points for BATB!
I remember I was still working in the hospital when the masquerade episode was shown on tv. In that very romantic episode, there was a scene where the two slow danced to the very beautiful cover of “Wherever You Will Go” by Charlene Soraia.
Had my heart exploded that time, I’m guessing I wouldn’t be alive to write this now (nyoinks!) but if it really did, there wouldn’t be pieces left of my heart, everything would just be charred (this analogy isn’t sensible at all, but you get what I mean). I could just watch that scene over and over again and wouldn’t get tired of it until I’m 80 or older!
I remember listening to that song on my way to work and back home ON REPEAT MODE, for weeks!!!! I found it especially helpful on my saddest days because everything around me suddenly became dramatic. That song was company to my misery, even my crossing across the street suddenly felt like MMK-worthy!
Then came 2014, right after Gabe was killed (thank God), which was also the season finale, the lovebirds are back eating each other’s faces again. And while that was happening, another beautiful cover was playing in the background which was very familiar to me, “Latch” by Natalie Taylor.
This is a permanent song on my sister’s shower playlist, (sung originally by Sam Smith of course) the sole reason why I am familiar with the song.
Now, this cover is going to be permanently part of my feel good playlist!
You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me even when you’re not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I’m latching on, babe, now I know what I have found

P.S. If I were Jake Ryan’s wife, Kristin would be dead by now! Kidding! These two really know my soft spot! Ganun?
