Ewan (Spoken)- Love is a many splendored thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love
Nicole- Please, don't start that again
Ewan- All you need is love
Nicole- A girl has got to eat
Ewan- All you need is love
Nicole- Or she'll end up on the street
Ewan- All you need is love
Nicole- Love is just a game
Ewan- I was made for lovin' you baby, you were made for lovin' me
Nicole- The only way of lovin' me, baby, is to pay a lovely fee
Ewan- Just one night, give me just one night
Nicole- There's no way, 'cause you can't pay
Ewan- In the name of love, one night in the name of love
Nicole- You crazy fool, I won't give in to you
Ewan- Don't leave me this way, I can't survive without your sweet love, oh baby, don't leave me this way
Nicole- You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs
Ewan- I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no
Nicole- Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs
Ewan- Well, what's wrong with that, I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again, Love lifts us up where we belong, where eagles fly on a mountain high
Nicole- Love makes us act like we are fools, throw our lives away for one happy day
Ewan- We could be heros, just for one day
Nicole- You, you will be mean
(Ewan- No, I won't)
Nicole- And I, I'll drink all the time
Ewan- We should be lovers
Nicole- We can't do that
Ewan- We should be lovers, and that's a fact
Nicole- Though nothing will keep us together
Ewan- We could steal time
Both- Just for one day, we could be heros forever and ever, we could be heros forever and ever, we could be heros
Ewan- Just because I will always love you
Nicole- I
Both- Can't help loving
Ewan- You
Nicole- How wonderful life is
Both- Now you're in the world

    General Commentthis song os so sweet, it is really cool how it all fits together. whoever put this togeather is a geinus and probably smoking something. it reminds me of when u were kids and u would pass around a sheet and put random song lines on it leaving it so it would sound funny. i just love this song.

    General CommentThe person who managed to merge all these songs together and make it sound so effortless i admire! I never thought i'd see U2 and the beatles in the same medley but it really works and with really sweet consequences. IT reminds me of "Your song" in the film, i love watching nicole kkidmans reaction to what he says, cutesy ;)

    General CommentThis thing is a pop-culture masterpiece, paradoxical thought that might seem. I think I heard somebody summarize it as "turning the sappiest love songs of the past fifty years into something magnificient." His voice sounds so sweet and her voice is so cool it should be illegal. I have had that little tiny bit of "Up Where We Belong" stuck in my head for solid weeks. There's just so much idealistic triumph in his voice when he says it that I think I'm going to explode. And then she counters him with equal force, "Love makes us act like we are fools, throw our lives away for one happy day." And that's so brilliant, because they're both right, in movies and in reality.

    General CommentI can't believe how well it was all done. The first time I saw it I started crying because I didn't know how else to react! They picked songs that fit the moment so well and had to have gone through so many lyrics to get them all. Maybe I do have a future...
