Lights, Cameras, ACTION!!!

So it’s official.  I just finished my second weirdest song of all times.  Not that the song itself is weird, but that the inspiration for the song is weird.  You see…I’ve written about some pretty interesting things.  Groundhogs, shoes, losing my retainer, mean girls, school mascots, and other songs.  But of all of my inspirations EVER the two most off the wall both belong to motion pictures.  So let’s give out some awards…

The #1 “Most Off The Wall Inspiration for a Maggie Lowe Original Song” goes to…

10893339_detThat’s right folks!!!  Nobody has seen this movie and yet everybody hates it.  I however (and my bestest friend) cannot get enough of this film.  Sandra Bullock is amazing in my favorite roll of her career and I literally had to run out and get myself some red boots after this movie.  But I did write a song about it!  It’s about Red Boots. It’s different.  But it’s actually got a good message and I really love the melody!

Don’t go changing, just to try and please him,
Cause he don’t even know who he is,
Just find somebody, as normal as you,
Who can give you wings and give you roots,
And likes your red boots!

That being said…the #2″Most Off The Wall Inspiration for a Maggie Lowe Original Song” goes to:

North To Alaska - 1958“North to Alaska”.  The 1960 film starring John Wayne, Stewart Granger, Ernie Kovacs, teen heart-throb Fabian, and in her first film roll, French model Capucine.  I just finished this song moments ago.  But it’s not a song about going North to Alaska (That’s already been done.)  My song is about my favorite line of the movie.  One of the swedish lumberjacks has just made a very aggressive on Angel.  (For those of you who have never seen this movie…first of all, quit living in a box…second of all, Angel is a “Lady of Questionable Repute”.)  Anyway, she is trying to be on the up and up for The Duke’s character (Sam McCord).  So the swedish lumberjack makes an aggressive movie on the fair Angel.  She tries to fight back but isn’t doing to well.  So Sam shows back up…and punches the lumberjack unconscious then sits down to eat his pie with Angel.  She starts asking why he did that and, exasperated, Sam says, “Haven’t you ever had two fellas fight over you before?”  Then Angel, with this very innocent smile on her face replies, “Over me, yes.  But…never for me.”  I love this line.  I love it, I love it, I love IT, I LOVE it!!!  And I got to thinking about that line recently and today it just dawned on me finally, that while that is true of Sam McCord and other manly men who protect their women.  It is so much more true about our heavenly Father and Protector!  Exodus 14:14 says: “The Lord is fighting for you!  So be still!”  (GWT)  It’s so true.  And it’s so wonderful!!!

I’ve never had anyone fight for me,
Risk it all and count nothing as loss,
I’ve never had anyone fight for me,
Let alone give their only son on a cross,
Oh Lord my God you had me at forgiveness and mercy,
I’ve never had anyone fight for me.
