Summary: Christmas vid that has a sideways view of the movie.


It was Christmas Eve, babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

So beautiful--such wonderful use of color.

Thanks. I was going for a "too much alcohol in the eggnog, passed out under the tree staring at the lights" look. :)

This was so absorbing to watch. :D The colors and the cutting made it feel like watching the movie with completely new eyes. And your comment about the X-mas tree lights made me go, "Yes! Exactly!" It's pretty, and sparkly and flashy and pulls through the emotional impact wonderfully. :}

yay, thank you

I have a rather dark reading of the movie. If Satine hadn't have died at the end, I don't think they would lived happily ever after. I think she had the right idea during this exchange:

Satine: You, you will be mean.
Christian: No, I won't!
Satine: And I... I'll drink all the time.

It's the same way I think Romeo and Juliet would have gotten over it if they would have waited a few weeks.

I've always been impressed by your use of color but you really blew me away with this vid. I feel like a lot of vidders throw in dramatic color shifts without much of a rhyme or reason to it, but I never got that feeling here. This should be held up as a guide for people wondering how to use color dramatically and effectively.

I also love the continued use of sweeping motion. I almost felt like I hadn't seen the movie before. It just all looked so new and shiny. :D

Thank you. I try to have a basis for my coloring choices, so I'm glad you can see my reasoning.

The source is so beautiful and I've wanted to vid it for a while. The same is true of the song. I'm not sure why it took so long for me to realize how well they could go together.
