Question Thought it was a song from House of Flying Daggers..

In my journey of frustration I have discovered your community...and I so hope you can help me sleep by identifying this beautiful yet now hateful song I have in my head!

I think it's from around 2004. The lyrics are in chinese...I think but it's got a kind of choir in there. I had thought it was from the house of Flying Daggers film but a search of the soundtrack and I can't find it. It starts of slow, almost operatic - really high pitched but gentle female vocals...and it gradually builds up to this almost tribal singing like a choir and is fast at that point. At this part the lyrics are kind of like..."hey de mar de mar heda de mara mar, HEY de mar de mar lenon demen mar!' gradually getting louder and more full of energy. and then it ends really sad and quiet. I have no idea what it was actually about but it's the kind of sing you feel.

I was so sure it was part of house of Flying Daggers and was in the scenes where they were fighting or she was doing the big echo dance.

I so hope you can help. Or at least have a laugh at my terrible phonetic translation of the lyrics !

If it's not this...



... then you probably just mixed it up with one of the many other movies Zhang Ziyi starred in around that time, like The Banquet or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Order some chinese food and rewatch all those flicks, and you'll find it in no time.

Thanks Oriphiel… it wasn't that song. I did have a Chinese though.

I don't think I'll ever remember. It felt so poignant. I'll be 67 and suddenly it will come to me.

Update: I found the song! It was used the UK theatrical trailer, but was actually on the Gladiator soundtrack. It's called Now We Are Free by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard.
