We gave it a C-

Recipe for soundtrack ballad: Start with nonspecific lyric that could apply to any blockbuster (”When I think back on these times and the dreams we left behind/I’ll be glad ’cause I was blessed to get to have you in my life”). Sprinkle in a key word to connect lyric with film in question (here, ”sky,” as in air raid, as in Pearl Harbor). Baste in overdone orchestration that crests in choruses. Top with in-demand ”soaring diva” (here, Faith Hill) who can follow in footsteps of Celine, Trisha, etc. Overcook for several minutes. Serve.
