Remember the film Bed of Roses from January 1996? Probably not. It was a romantic drama about a driven career woman, played by Mary Stuart Masterson, who is romanced by a shy florist, played by Christian Slater. I enjoyed the film but what stuck with me was the song that played over the closing credits.
Scarlet’s “Independent Love Song” blew me away. This song has a fantastic blend of music and vocals that have some amazing crescendos. I had to buy the movie soundtrack to get this song since it was way before iTunes was around to let you buy a single track from a CD. Today the song remains in heavy rotation on my iPod and I decided to share it with all of you today.
The video isn’t great (rather blah actually for a mid-90s video) but you can check out the song and see if you like it as much as I do.
