Still Breathing
director: James F. Robinson
release: May 1, 1998, USA
  Starring: Brendan Fraser and Joanna Going.. Plot Outline: Two lost souls: she a con-artist in L.A. (Joanna Going); he a puppeteer in San Antonio (Brendan Fraser) have the same dream linking each with the other. He travels to L.A. to find this woman he has become obsessed with. She resists, afraid of his kooky ideas until she travels with him to San Antonio and meets his wise grandmother (Celeste Holm). Story of two disparate people linked by "fate" gets increasingly interesting as it rolls along.
"Laredo Rose"
Roz and Fletcher
Nothing captures the sense of South Texas like The Texas Tornados, a spicy Tex-Mex quartet made up of four seasoned players: Freddy Fender, Augie Meyers & Doug Sahm, veterans of the Sir Douglas Quintet; and legendary southwestern accordion player Flaco Jimenez. They formed the Texas Tornados in 1989. One thing that makes their music stand out is their unique fusion of Mexican polkas and folk music, contemporary Tex Mex, '50s style rock and doowop and blues. "Laredo Rose", probably inspired by a trip to "Boystown" in Nuevo Laredo, is used as source music in Fletcher's '63 Impala convertible when Roz asks him to show her his favorite place in San Antonio. (Director's note)
"Sittin'Up At Night"
Roz: I'm not going to Texas...
San Antonian Augie Meyers' bluesy lament is used in a very sexy scene when Fletcher decides to take Roz to Texas. Meyers has found great success as a solo artist, most memorably "Hey Baby, Que Paso" as well as with the Texas Tornados and The Sir Douglas Quintet. He appeared in a scene in STILL BREATHING that was unfortunately cut due to time restraints (sorry Augie!!). (Director's note)
