- original soundtrack -

há quem goste mais da Ella Fitzgerald ou da Aretha Franklin, mas para mim não há ninguém que bata o sentimento da Etta James. Ela canta coisas - mesmo coisas que já não se usam - como se estivesse a senti-las.
às vezes ouço esta música à noite, à janela, quando tudo está suspenso e silencioso.

Something told me it was over
When I saw you and her talkin'
Something deep down in my soul said, 'Cry, girl'
When I saw you and that girl walkin' around

Whoo, I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy
Then to see you walk away from me, child, no

Whoo, so you see, I love you so much
That I don't wanna watch you leave me, baby
Most of all, I just don't, I just don't wanna be free, no

Whoo, whoo, I was just, I was just, I was just
Sittin here thinkin', of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah

Whoo and baby, baby, I'd rather, I'd rather be blind, boy
Then to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah
Whoo, baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind...

(I'd rather go blind, Etta James)
