Come What May (2001 song)

"Come What May" is a song composed by David Baerwald, originally intended for the film William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. However, it was first heard publicly, and is best known as the romantic love theme from Baz Luhrmann's 2001 film Moulin Rouge!, where it is sung by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in their respective roles as Christian and Satine.

The song takes its title from a phrase that originates from Shakespeare's Macbeth.

The song plays an important role in the film. When the forbidden strong and close romantic relationship between Christian and Satine has been discovered, Christian pens this romance song and includes it in the musical he is currently writing. Each time either of them sings this song, they can secretly declare their equally deep and true romantic love for each other.

The version of the song on the soundtrack album differs slightly from the version heard in the film. The lyrics "Every day I love you more and more" and "Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing / Telling me to give you everything" can be heard on the soundtrack version. In the movie, they are replaced by a musical interlude the first time, and, the second time, Satine sings instead of the latter part: "come back to me and forgive everything." The single version can be found on the original soundtrack, while the original film version can be found on the follow-up soundtrack.

Come What(ever) May

Come What(ever) May is the second studio album by American alternative metal band Stone Sour. It was recorded and produced by the band and Nick Raskulinecz at Studio 606 in Los Angeles, California, and was released on August 1, 2006, through Roadrunner Records. Writing for the album began as early as 2003 when vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist James Root were writing material for their other band, Slipknot. In January 2006 Stone Sour began recording the follow-up to their 2002 debut album Stone Sour, during which time drummer Joel Ekman left the band due to family constraints. He was eventually replaced by ex- Soulfly drummer Roy Mayorga who played on all but two tracks on the album.

Following the release of the album, Stone Sour went on to promote it for over a year; releasing five singles and touring in several regions, including the United States, Canada, Japan and several countries in Europe. The album received generally positive reviews. It was praised for showing a progression in the band's song writing ability and musical style. It was also certified Gold in the United States and Canada and the single "30/30-150" was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 49th Grammy Awards. On June 26, 2007 Stone Sour released a special edition version of the album, it included six previously unreleased tracks and a bonus DVD which featured three music videos and a complete live performance of the band in Moscow. It remains their best-selling album to date, mostly due to the success of the single " Through Glass."
