Soundtracks That Mattered (to me) is my theme for the A-Z Challenge this April.
While we are going back in time, it is not as far as usual. This movie was released on March 28, 2000. This photo of my son and I comparing our bellies was taken on March 17, 2000. (I don't think I had a green maternity shirt, and who knows if that is the outfit my little friend started the day wearing.)
My due date was April 22, so my husband and I had plenty of time to take in a movie. I am uncomfortable just thinking about sitting in a movie theater seat as I look at this photo, but John Cusack has always been worth some sacrifices and hardships.
The music was certainly not all familiar to me at the time, but I thought it was such an incredible background to the story. The eclectic mix was plausible for the true music lovers in charge of Championship Vinyl. The story was bittersweet as was the soundtrack at times, but it still provided some comfort and relaxation without the pressure to sing along. Just some peace and soothing notes in my world since, at the time, very frequently, it had anything but.
