Q: As a young girl, I use to watch a soap opera called Santa Barbara. Could you please tell me the name of the song that was played during those special moments between “Cruz” (A. Martinez) & “Eden” (Marci Walker)? Who was the artist that wrote the song played for "Julia & Mason" called.. I Love You?
A: This Emmy-winning soap opera aired in the United States from July 30, 1984 until January 15, 1993. During this time there were more than fifty songs played for Cruz and Eden, one of which was “I Love You”, but the artist is not listed.
"Another Place, Another Time" by Grant Saidiner and Ron Boustead;"Back to Avalon" by Kenny Loggins; “Can This Be Real Love" by Dan Hill; "Chances Are" by Johnny Mathis; "Coming Around Again" by Carly Simon, and "Love and Marriage" by Frank Sinatra, are just a few of many played for Julia and Mason. Recognize Julia? That’s our own Alexis from GH!
Q: How much longer is Lucky's
brainwashing going to last? It has been going on for a year and a half with no
end in sight. It is boring and un-compelling.
Thanks. Sue Young
Q: I was hoping that you could help
me, I am at the end of my rope with a particular storyline on my favorite show,
General Hospital. I am a HUGE fan
of Lucky and Elizabeth (I've been a fan of them since day 1).
Those two are the ONLY REASON I am watching
GH at all and I will watch them in almost ANY storyline, (blackmailing,
Dead Ted etc;)-- no matter WHO plays Lucky either-- but I don’t know how much
longer I can handle this
So this is my question: Why
are TPTB dragging this out so long??? Do you have any idea how much longer it
will be?? I heard Lucky and
Elizabeth were to be married by the end of the summer, considering today is the
16th of August, I doubt that they are going to wrap the brainwashing up and get
them married in the next 2 weeks. I
will be hoping for it though!! I
have seen themes that last a long time on this show ie; Spencer/Cassidine wars,
Sonny’s issues with the women he loves and their betrayal, etc, but this
brainwashing thing is almost more than I can deal with!!!!
How do TBTP expect to keep their viewers on the show if they can barely
keep the actors?? I've been hearing
rumors that both JY and BH want out of the show A.S.A.P.--because of this
particular storyline!!! Thanks SOOO much for letting me vent here!!!
summer is here and there has been no sign of this storyline ending, you’re
best bet would be to stay tuned until the November Sweeps.
That would also be a perfect time for these two to tie the matrimonial
knot, although we haven’t heard anything about this as yet.
Many longtime viewers who at one time watched GH religiously, have begun
to tune them out due to the ridiculously long drawn-out storylines that
have been written recently.
As for the rumors, don’t allow them to carry too much weight until they
actually become a reality. And if
you keep watching the show, just hope for an ending to this brainwashing of
Lucky’s and take an antacid before you acquire an ulcer.
I really want Sonny and Carly to get back together. They make GH
very interesting. Any chance? Jonnie
Q: Are Carly and Sonny getting back
together? I hope so. I love their
story line. Sonny can not
forget about Carly after all they’ve been through.
If he forgave Brenda, he should forgive Carly.
Also there was a song that I love in one of the love scenes of Chloe and
Jax. and it goes something like “heaven knows I'm head over heels and it
shows”. Please tell me the
artist’s name and the name of the song.
what I have learned, Sonny and Carly will be reuniting.
Over the next few months their relationship will become deeper and more
meaningful as they become involved in a new and exciting storyline.
The song you asked about is titled “Lost In You” and was recorded by Chris Gaines (Garth Brooks).
This was the song that played when
Jax and Chloe first made love on New Year's Eve.
“There’s no more waiting/ Holding out for love/ You are my Godsend/ That I have been forever dreaming of/ My angel from above.
Heaven knows/ I'm head over heels and it shows/ I've played every field I suppose/ But there's something about you/ When you're around/ Baby I have found/ I get lost in you.
What is this
feeling/ I’ve never known before/ That I should touch you/ Swearing to
surrender ever more/ That's what I came here for/ Heaven knows/ I'm head over
heels and it shows/ I've played every field I suppose/ But there's something
about you/ When you're around/ Baby I have found/ I get lost in a wonderful
daze/ Lost in your wonderful ways.
Heaven knows/ When you're around/ Baby I have found/ I get lost
knows/ I'm head over heels and it shows/ I've played every field I suppose/ But
there's something about you/ When you're around/ Baby I have found/ I get lost
Q: What are the lyrics for Emily's poem
that Juan turned into a song? I can’t remember.
May 9, 2000, Juan found Emily’s poem, which he later turned into a song
entitled “Heart and Soul”.
I walk around hiding a smile/ Girl you don't know
what you do to me
Looks like I’m through running around/ Baby I know
where I wanna be
How can I make you see what you mean to me?
With all my heart, with all my
soul I need you more than you know
With all I feel, with all I do/ Girl can't you see that I love you Heart
Time after time, I close my eyes, thinking about what
the night will bring
Dancing alone, your body next to mine/ I want to give you everything How
can I describe what I feel inside?
Yeah, with all my heart, with all my soul, I need you
more than you know
With all I feel, with all I do, girl can't you see
that I love you Heart and soul
Look at me, you will see/ Hold me
“HI I BEEN WATCHING GH FOR OVER 25YRS AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN IT AT ITS
LOWEST UNTIL RECENTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENS TO THE SHOW IN THE LAST 1 1/2 YRS IT HAS
GOTTEN TERBBLE IS IT GOING TO GET BETTER? IS IT TRUE THAT LUKE AND LAURA ARE
GOING TO REMARRY IN NOVEMBER ALSO IS IT TRUE THAT JACOB YOUNG IS LEAVING THE
SHOW.ARE THEY GOING TO RECAST THE ROLE OF CARLY THE ACTRESS THAT IS NOW PLAYING
HER IS TERIBBLE I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND MEAN BUT SHE IS JUST NOT WORKING
OUT IN THE ROLE THANK YOU.”
If you’re asking my opinion, here
it is. What
has happened to the show is mainly the fault of the writers.
As they come and go, each has their own ideas of what he/she wants, and
once a character or a story line is written and used on the show, you can’t
simply toss them out the window and start over.
It’s a lot like our government. What
one administration does to screw up the works can not be undone right away by
the next. It takes time, and as
long as we have writers on the soaps that will not create with the interests of
the viewers in mind, we will continue to have these long, drawn out, and very
frequently uninteresting story lines.
It has been written that Laura and Luke will be reuniting later in the
year. As for Jacob Young, Katrina
told me he has mentioned leaving off and on, but at this point in time, he is
still on contract and filming. And
even though some viewers do not like Tamara Braun in Carly’s role, she is on
contract with GH and her superiors are pleased with her work, so don’t look
for her exit anytime in the coming months.
(From Naomi: Recently
I have received many, many critical emails complaining about GH plots,
characters, etc. I will do what I
can to answer all these questions, and with a few of these emails I may even
agree with the writer, but I have been a loyal GH fan since the 60’s and will
continue to hang in there through the good and the bad, until the series goes
off the air. I also feel that GH is
one of the best daytime soaps on ABC, with some of the best actors in the
Q: I would like to know what is
Nikolas whole name on General Hospital. Nikolas
???? Cassidine. I know his real
name is Cultin Scott or something like that.
Scott plays Prince Nikolas Mikael Stavrosavich Cassadine.
I just heard a particularly nasty rumor about Chris Robinson and
while I don't want to repeat it, I was just curious, what's he up to these days?
I miss the old days with Lesley, Monica, Rick and Alan!
It's kind of interesting that they've rehashed that with Carly, AJ and
Jason. Thanks! Sandra L.
I don’t know what you’ve
heard, but there isn’t very much information on Chris since his character of
Rick Webber left town in 1986. Chris has been married three times and is the father of three
His acting credits since departing from GH include roles in “Like
Father, Like Son” 1987; “Viper” 1988; and a steady role in “The Bold and
The Beautiful” as Jack Hamilton from 1992-1997, 2000, and 2001.
Back when Lesley, Monica, Rick and Alan were at each others throats, the
writing was excellent and there were many, many great scenes, including a time
in 1980 when Alan plotted to kill Rick and Monica up in the Quartermaine
nursery. Too bad for us, the viewers, as it looks like those days are
What happened to the original Carley????
I liked her better. Patricia
Months ago I printed
information on this, and a few weeks ago I reprinted it for another reader.
Since you must have missed both columns I’ll print it for you once
During an interview with Soap Opera Weekly's West Coast Editor, Janet Di
Lauro, on April 17th, Sarah Brown stated:
“It’s definitely a decision that I labored over, and yet it's
something that I've been thinking about for two years. My heart is telling me
that now is the time. I need to move on and make my way into directing, which is
something that I've wanted to do since I can remember.
There's not really a place to do that and stay on a soap. I realized it
was time to cut down on my workload in terms of the daytime gig, in order to
focus on the things that I really hope to do in the future.”
“You know what really took me off guard? Those rumors on the Internet
about Jill and myself having some sort of blowout and that that is what caused
me to leave General Hospital. These rumors are completely false. Plain and
simple, [this alleged blowout] just never happened”.
interview on April 24th:
"I did cry my eyes out," shared Sarah Brown on her final day on
the GENERAL HOSPITAL set earlier this month. "I tried not to, but it's like
going off to college after high school. Its poetically, beautifully sad."
After Brown taped her final scenes, which aired on April 24, cast and
crew gathered to say goodbye on a sweet note. "They brought in a cake, and
everyone came up," she smiles. "I was in such an emotional state, but
I told everyone that I really felt like I grewup at GENERAL HOSPITAL. I learned
so much about my craft, and I really wanted to thank every single person who I
Did it make her reconsider her decision to leave? "No, it really
didn't," she admits.“I am
completely at peace with my decision. I'm really listening to my heart. It's
like a subconscious
feeling when something has given you or you've given it as much as you can,
and it's time to move on and get to something else.”
“I'm not looking to come back, and I don't mean that in any negative
way whatsoever," she concludes.
"I've loved it. I've just run the gamut with the character and I really
want to move into new things in my life. That's the only reason."
And to her fans, "I want to say how much I appreciate, respect,
adore them and their support for not only the character of Carly, but the
storyline of Sonny and Carly, and for myself as a person. I'm so very grateful
for my experiences. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I never expected
this kind of ride."
Opera Weekly - August 21, 2001
Sarah Brown's experience portraying an impulsive woman came in handy
when she filmed the role of Emma Shepard, a reporter investigating the
paranormal, for a three-episode arc on NBC's Mysterious Ways, beginning Aug. 17.
The pace of prime time was a factor that Brown had to adjust to quickly.
"I'm used to going a million miles a minute," Brown jokes.
"There's a lot more downtime (in prime time) to work on the material. I'm
glad I did soaps as long as I did; it makes this stuff a lot easier."
Brown promises that viewers will see "flashes of Carly" in
Emma. "You can't play somebody for five years and not expect to see it seep
into your personality. What I created on General Hospital came from who I am as
a woman. There are parts of me that refuse to lay down to anybody."
Mysterious Ways airs Fridays on NBC. PAX will begin airing episodes from
the beginning Tuesday, Sept. 11.
