...About Last Night (1986 version, please)
Soundtracks That Mattered (to me) is my theme for the A-Z Challenge this April.
Well, well, well...the letter A, and I am nearly overwhelmed with nostalgia. I don't know how many times I actually watched this movie - on VHS of course - the soundtrack on cassette was typically in the car, so it felt like a daily occurrence. I loved how the music told the tale, starting with the upbeat tracks of people falling for each other. The notes were not a backdrop for the story, but became the story. My friends and I were in our late teens and early twenties, many of us finding love. These songs celebrated that phase of something more adult than the relationships we'd had before. As much as I did love the movie, slightly less than my uber fan friends who had the movie poster and favorite quotes, the music held me much longer. (But no, Dan, they were not just bowling partners.)
