…Pretty in Pink
Soundtracks That Mattered (to me) is my theme for the A-Z Challenge this April.
This. Part of me feels like I need to just dance around the edge of this one, for if I fall in, I may not be able to get back out. I wore out my copy of the cd, but refused to throw it away. Instead I would listen up to where the music became garbled, and sometimes would just sing through, hoping the next song would miraculously be fixed. Clearly buying a new copy would have been far too complex of a solution, and it wasn't like I could have brought myself to throw away the original one anyway.
|Oh my gosh! I cannot locate my CD or case, and had a very hard time finding an image online.|
This music made me feel the feels of the movie over and over again. The soundtrack echoed the notion of quirky outcasts. If You Leave and Do Wot You Do were the gateway tunes for me to seek out more music by OMD and INXS. Other songs, like Round Round and Bring on the Dancing Horses, just became part of my Pretty in Pink world, and I only listened to them in that context. I will say that the opening drum beat and guitar chord of Pretty in Pink gets me every time. I feel young again, filled with hope and a celebration of slight awkwardness.
Ok, one more...
