“Don’t Know Why, But They Do”
Words & Music by Joe De Benedetti Noah Hill
The following is the story behind why I chose the song. Joe De Benedetti has been a friend & wolf advocate since the wolf hunts began in 2011. Around four years ago he sent me his song. So when I decided to try and make a film about yellowstone’s wolves I thought about Joe’s song because it pulled at my heartstrings. I messaged him and asked if I could use his song for the film. The funny thing here, that I need to mention is Joe was sick in bed with the flu, but he said yes and sent the song out to me right away! That’s the kind of wolf advocate he is, and his generosity in donating the song so this important story can get out to the public “exemplifies” what this film is all about; The Heart of Wolf Advocacy! And it’s almost as if this song was made for our film! Nothing happens by mistake.
Special Thanks goes out to;
