I went through this whole thread, and I can't believe no one said this.


"Far Away" by Nickelback always reminds me of BBM.  I saw the fan video before the song was released as a single.  When it was finally released and a 'real' video was made, every time it played on TV, my head would snap around, expecting to see Jack and Ennis on the TV.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

You are right, friend. That song does work!

In my readings tonight I encountered something very Brokeish. My permaculture handbook described the notion of "transhumance" or herds and herders moving uphill and transferring nutrients uphill.

We have an extra thread for A song that makes me think of Brokeback Mountain. I'm sure it's in there. And there are some other BBM-music dedicated threads. I think Far Away is in most of them.
I remember the days when I barely could listen to the song without tearing up. Even worse was Goodbye my Lover by James Blunt. I had them both on a CD in my car, but no way I could listen to the James Blunt song while driving; I always skipped it.
Like you, the BBM videos made to both songs would play immediately in my head when hearing the first notes.

When I went to the Texas BBQ I was the one who supplied the music for the event, I had taken a bunch of requests from people beforehand so I would have what people wanted to hear.  I had quite a few requests for "Far Away".

The more quotes I see from the late James Garner, the more I think he deserves the title "Brokieish".

Totally with you there, FRiend! I've always liked James Garner, and the part of me that likes him, though not identical to the part of me that likes Brokeback Mountain, does overlap.

Great Throwback Thursday thread!

Sacajawea is buried in Fort Washakie in the Wind River Valley of Wyoming. I suppose that's the extent of her Brokie connection. Or is it?

The late Troy Donahue is Brokieish.

I always liked him better than Tab Hunter, maybe because he actually made a cavalry movie, A Distant Trumpet.

And get a load of the name of one of the screenwriters for A Distant Trumpet!

Who knew?  ;D

And that's why Troy Donahue is Brokieish!
