Tag: Roger Waters
There is no point in showing off every one of Roger Waters’ musical merits, every Pink Floyd album he almost entirely written by himself or every legendary gig he was involved in. We’ll just concentrate on this track, Hello (I Love You), which featured on none of his albums, but on the soundtrack of The Last Mimzy and it was the best thing about that rather mediocre movie. In fact, this Howard Shore co-written song doesn’t even really fit that movie, only maybe in some of the lyrics (“The kids will have to separate Their future from our past”, “Your child can read you like a bedtime story”). It sounds far too dramatic and moody for a film about a sort of Terminator Teddy Bear sent from the future to protect a threatened mankind. With an acoustic background that will bring Bowie’s Space Oddity to mind, you’ll find that this track would fit better on some sort of romantic SF thriller about junkies in love with holograms. But, despite, its context and it’s video, Hello (I Love You) remains an interesting piece of music.
