After a lot of intense stargazing which resulted in an equal lot of blogposts over the weekend about on-screen and off-screen chemistry between Richard Armitage and several actors & directors (including Rutina Wesley!) and not least myself & “The Witches of Erebor“, I finally managed to watch Hannibal 3.10 very late last night in bed – the perfect setting in review ;-).

About two months ago in “Richard Armitage, Hannibal and the 7 Year Itch” I had “predicted” that the episode airing on august 6 might be the most intense of the series. Well, we don’t know what will happen in the next three ones, but this was undoubtedly the highlight among the first three!

This experience was topped by some intense “Kopfkino” today: when I drove to work this morning, hearing Patti Smith’s classic “Because the Night” on my random playlist, flooded my mind with vivid pictures of the episode. This really made me wonder if any of the actors had this song on his on-set-playlist – Rutina perhaps? 😉

Anyway, beautiful, magnificent song … and heartbreaking, breathtaking episode. So I’ve added the wonderful lyrics and music for everyone else to muse about it too … welcome to my “Kopfkino” 😉


 
Because The Night
(written by Bruce Springsteen & Patti Smith, 1977)

Take me now baby here as I am
Pull me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I’m in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can’t hurt you now,
Can’t hurt you now, can’t hurt you now
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I’m alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can’t touch you now,
Can’t touch you now, can’t touch you now
Because the night belongs to lovers …

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turn and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it’s time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now
Because the night belongs to lovers …

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers …
