Who remembers the movie ‘An American Tail’?
This is an animated movie that was release 30 years ago back in 1986. Here is the storyline per imdb.com –
Fievel is a young Russian mouse separated from his parents on the way to America, a land they think is without cats. When he arrives alone in the New World, he keeps up hope, searching for his family, making new friends, and running and dodging the cats he thought he’d be rid off.
The popular song that came from this movie is titled ‘Somewhere Out There’. Per wikia.com –
Somewhere Out There is a song that Fievel and Tanya both sing one night while Fievel is lost in New York City, neither knowing that the other is also singing the song. Fievel sings because he knows his family is out there and he wants to find them, and Tanya sings because she refuses to believe that Fievel is dead.
So these mice are in 2 different locations and singing the same song. They know the other is somewhere out there.
I think of this song every time I am on WP and responding to a comment on my blog or leaving a comment on your blog and instantly, or rather quickly I get a response back. Sometimes you and I are online at the same time, viewing each other’s blogs or seeing each other’s comments and responding back. We are under the same big sky singing the same song in different locations. How cool is that!
Some lyrics from the song ‘Somewhere Out There’ –
Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moon light
It helps to think we might be wishing, on the same bright star
It helps to think we’re sleeping, underneath the same big sky

It is nice to know, we here on WP are underneath the same big sky.
It is nice to know; we might be wishing on the same bright star.
It is nice to know we are beneath the pale moon light.
It is nice to know you are somewhere out there.
