One of my new features to help further the Chuckaholics experience would be the addition of Chuck song of the day. The idea steams from the wonderful music Chuck provided to help enhance the story or scene. I often gave my thoughts on some of the scenes when you think about the song selection. I can’t emphasis how many bands coming from the series I now listen to this day.
It can get emotional when the song playing matches the emotions of the cast. Some of the best acting when raw emotion is demonstrated perfectly. Over the course of the next few weeks I will give you a journey through my mind when it comes to music and the meaning I get from the unspoken word. Sometimes nothing being said can be more powerful, but when the song playing makes me feel even more emotional
I post on twitter daily a Chuck song of the day and today’s song was We Don’t Eat by James Vincent McMorrow. You can find the song in one of the best scenes when Mary Bartowski reunites with Ellie for the first time during Chuck vs The First Fight, but its bigger than that when you take in account Sarah Walker being in the room as well. I thought Sarah should’ve been in the room after all she was going to be Mary’s daughter in law.
It can make you feel sorry for Ellie in a way because she was surrounded by spies. Ellie’s mother, father, brother and sister in law were spies. Awesome went on spy missions and even Morgan joined the team. If a new series would start nothing could be more interesting to see than how Ellie adapts with all of this plus living in an entire apartment complex full of spies.
The key lyrics to the song is this
That we don’t eat until your father’s at the table
We don’t drink until the devil’s turned to dust
Never once has any man I’ve met been able to love
So if I were you, I’d have a little trust
Chuck and Ellie have trust issues with Mary and rightfully so, There mother has been gone for years, but like Orion had to do, so did Mary. It’s common problem facing Sarah and Chuck. Yes, we can sit here and say Mary should’ve just quit and be a mother, but sometimes something bigger than ourselves is more important. Ellie needed to hear the story from Mary not Chuck. Sarah needed to hear it too, which is why I loved seeing Sarah taking in the story as well.
A very powerful scene with a song that fit the scene because these were the women of the Bartowski clan.
I hope this new feature will be something people look forward to. I will continue to post songs on Twitter, but for an analysis of the scene and song I will post my thoughts of the song and why I wanted to go with it for the moment here on Chuckaholics.
