I read an interview with him and Kieth Richards where they actually picked out the audience by hand - no fat bitches or hypernerds…that means you pete…allowed. I really liked the Last Waltz movie…robbie robertson was the producer for that movie - you know…The guy from “the band”…take a load off annie, you put the load right on me…



anyhow, he wrote a song called shine a light - I wonder if he had anything to do with the title of the movie?

The cry of the city like a siren’s song

Wailing over the rooftops the whole night long

Saw a shooting star like a diamond in the sky

Must be someone’s soul passing by



These are the streets

Where we used to run where your Papa’s from

These are the days

Where you become what you become

These are the streets

Where the story’s told

The truth unfolds

Darkness settles in



Shine your light down on me

Lift me up so i can see

Shine your light when you’re gone

Give me the strength

To carry on, carry on



Don’t wanna be a hero

Just an everyday man

Trying to do the job the very best he can

But now it’s like living on borrowed time

Out on the rim, over the line

Always tempting fate like a game of chance

Never wanna stick around to the very last dance

Sometimes i stumble and take a hard fall

Loose(?) hold your grip off the wall



Shine your light down on me

Lift me up so i can see

Shine your light when you’re gone

Give me the strength to carry on

Carry on



I thought i saw him walking by the side of the road

Maybe trying to find his way home



He’s here but not here

He’s gone but not gone

Just hope he knows if I get lost



Shine your light down on me

Lift me up so i can see

Shine your light when you’re gone

Give me the strength to carry on

To carry on

No, Shine A Light has nothing to do with the title of the movie which is called Shine A Light. Nothing at all.



Yes, Robbie Robertson starred in The Last Waltz. He is part of The Band, you know the group the film is about.

so its just a coincidence that Robbie Robertson wrote a song named shine a light, produced Last Waltz, was a member of The Band - the band of whom The Last Waltz is about, and is a friend of Martin’s…it’s a small world after all. Gosh Pete…where in the fuck would we be without the intelligent elite such as yourself…



uh…I’ll field that one Kilgore…WE’D BE AT PEACE WITHOUT THAT FUCKING KNOW-IT-ALL BASTARD WHO HOPS AROUND MOVIE FORUMS HOPING THAT THEY WILL FORGIVE HIM FOR BEING SUCH A FUCKING PRICK!



Thanks, whoever you are!
