When Two Cultural Worlds Collide (In a good way)

How many times have you been watching a film or a television programme you really enjoy only for it to reach new heights with the addition of a song you love? It’s happened to me quite a few times and I wanted to put a video up which illustrated the point. After a fair bit of deliberation, I have decided to go with the clip below. It’s from the sixth season of The Sopranos and features Christopher Moltisanti lapsing back in to his old ways. For those like me who are fans of the show this scene doesn’t need too much explanation. For those who haven’t seen the show, and I suppose there must be some, I would urge you to go and buy the full box set at the next available opportunity, like a trusted friend in a time of crisis, it won’t let you down.
The song used in the clip is Dolphins by the wonderful Fred Neil. I remember watching this when it first aired on television and just being blown away. It remains one of my favourite passages in a show which as has been well documented, is one of the greatest ever made. I hope you enjoy it, I think it’s majestic.
