fripodding and remembering: “as time goes by” dooley wilson


Do you know how difficult it was to track down this song on YouTube compared to the version iSaac and I have? It was quite a search, let me tell you.

I have no problem showing you clips or scenes of this lovely and highly acclaimed classic Casablanca. In fact, I would. The movie is a #1 for so many for a reason. But it’s the song I’m trying to showcase and I would rather play a complete song than a complete scene that has an incomplete song, ya dig?

So, due to the holidays and it being Valentine’s Day and all, I thought I’d pick this classic love song. Last year, I picked a song I just loved, not because it seemed anti-Valentine, but also because it was just awesome. This year, I’m still in the same cynical-feeling boat, but I have a positive outlook on things. And I know as time goes by, things will change. I do have memories of better times, fun times, and times that actually involved this movie. And even if things are different next year, considering I can relate so well to those singletons out there, I can still support the anit-VDay movement.

Besides, if you are with the person you love, isn’t everyday supposed to be Valentine’s Day? Just a thought.

Furthermore, it’s also Chinese New Year’s… so there’s that.

Everyone has their opinions on February the 14th: whether you hate it for being single, love it because you’re not, or don’t care regardless… love and romance will always be around 365, and so will this movie and it’s classic song.

Oh yeah, and a lot of Warner Bros. movies play the first few notes when it’s shiny shield comes flying out of the clouds before the movie starts.
