“I think he’s gay. Why on earth he would sing I Know Him So Well?”, Rolex asked. We googled it and found out that John Barrowman’s spouse partner is named Scott Gill. Please excuse me if I don’t known him but at least now I know him and as a matter of fact, I know him so well 🙂

I am not really fond of sitting in front of a computer watching random videos on youtube. However on a typical “with-nothing-to-do-days”, Rolex is watching random videos on youtube and he would yell at me to stop at whatever I was doing just to watch what he has found amusing or amazing on the said channel. Last night was no exemption. I would like to commend Nawras internet, now that its going faster by the minute, we were able to enjoy the features of our Samsung Smart TV (oh! finally!).

There are only a few songs that I like from the moment I first heard seen it on the radio MTV (yes  I was already in highschool when MTV was born) and still like it even until now. One of which is the song ” I Know Him So Well ” which vividly brings back Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson with big hair and chunky accessories.

I can’t totally relate to the song (check the lyrics later or if you know the story of the musical Chess…), but I like it in a way that it brings a certain pain inside, the same feelings when I hear “Run to You” by Whitney Houston. However, seeing two men sing “I Know Him So Well” is totally different and John Barrowman and Daniel Boys’ duet was beautiful. It was so beautiful that Rolex and I watched at least 8 times last night until we fell as sleep and watched it again when we woke up (we’re crazy).

I dedicate this video to all my gay friends. I am teasing Rolex that now he has found a new anthem on the videoke. Move over Faithfully (Journey), I Know Him So Well is here!

I KNOW HIM SO WELL

From Chess: London Soundtrack

[FLORENCE]

Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
Perfect situations must go wrong
But this has never yet prevented me
Wanting far too much for far too long.
Looking back I could have played it differently
Won a few more moments who can tell
But it took time to understand the man
Now at least I know I know him well

[FLORENCE]
Wasn’t it good?
Wasn’t he fine?
Isn’t it madness
He can’t be mine?

[SVETLANA]
Oh so good
Oh so fine

He can’t be mine?

[FLORENCE]
But in the end he needs
A little bit more than me —
More security

[SVETLANA]
He needs his fantasy
And freedom

[FLORENCE]
I know him so well.

[SVETLANA]
No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side
And though I move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide.

[FLORENCE]

Looking back I could
Have played things
Some other way

[SVETLANA]

Looking back I could
Have played it
Differently

Learned about the man
Before I fell

[FLORENCE]
I was just a little
Careless maybe

[SVETLANA]
But I was
Ever so much
Younger then
Now at least

[FLORENCE]
Now at least
I know him well

[BOTH]
I know I know him well

[SVETLANA]

Wasn’t it good?
Wasn’t he fine?
Isn’t it madness

[FLORENCE]

Oh so good
Oh so fine

[BOTH]
He won’t be mine?
Didn’t I know
How it would go?
If I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart?

[SVETLANA]

Wasn’t it good?
Wasn’t he fine?

[FLORENCE]

Isn’t it madness
He won’t be mine?

[SVETLANA]
He won’t be mine?

[FLORENCE]
But in the end he needs a
Little bit more than me —
More security

[SVETLANA]
He needs his
Fantasy and freedom

[FLORENCE]
I know him so well

[SVETLANA]
It took time to understand him

[BOTH]
I know him so well

Cheers!
