I’ve had a ton of favorites songs throughout my life so far. I figured I’d kick off my blog with my current favorite. I first noticed “Life In Three Parts” when I was stuck in my house during Hurricane Sandy. My family was lucky enough to have power for most of the storm and the days that followed, so I decided to re-watch season 1 of my all time favorite TV show, the 1999-2002 series Roswell. I’m a borderline obsessed fan of the alien-human love story.
I was just 13 when Roswell first aired on the WB, so at that time I was more interested in the relationship story lines than the music. However, I’ve since re-watched the show countless times on DVD and each time I watch it I notice a new song that I have to add to my personal collection: there’s the hauntingly ethereal “Fear” by Sarah McLachlan, the gorgeous lullaby “I Shall Believe” by Sheryl Crow, and the romantically epic “Here With Me” by Dido (aka Roswell’s theme song.) The original score, which I can’t seem to purchase anywhere, is also phenomenal.
“Life in Three Parts”’ is a softer rock song with a pretty hook. It’s played in the DVD version of the episode titled Independence Day. (In the original aired version, the song playing was Collective Soul’s “Run.” While I love me some Collective Soul, I think the song by Highwater Rising is an excellent alternative and works nicely in the scene between the alien Michael and human Maria. What can I say, I’m a sucker for good music in good scenes. And Roswell has a lot of that going on 🙂
