X is for...

…X (in its Roman numeral form) 
10 Things I Hate About You


Soundtracks That Mattered (to me) is my theme for the A-Z Challenge this April.

This soundtrack still makes me feel the pain, love, awkwardness and joy of this movie. Most of the songs were new to me at the time, aside from the two Letters to Cleo remakes. I threw this cd in my car somewhere near the beginning of April just to refresh my memory a bit, and to help decide which tune to post. This song still takes my breath away (possibly because I insist on trying to sing along)...

Yes, yes, I know there is a movie that legitimately starts with an X...you're welcome.

  1. First thing I thought was Xanadu. I mean how can you forget Olivia Newton John in spandex????

  2. Aw come on! You didn't do Xanadu?????? God that movie was horrible but ELO was my fave band in those days so I was beyond thrilled when they did some of the songs for it. Gene Kelly really must've needed the money to be in that farce.

  3. Personally, I'm glad you went with Ten Things I Hate About You over Xanadu. Not that I don't love spandex and roller disco dancing scene, of course.

    But Ten Things I Hate About You is one of those movies I still enjoy watching today. And the soundtrack is fantastic.

  4. Thank you. Thank you. Xanadu was too obvious.

  6. I haven't seen this movie in ages - brings back memories. Great song pick too. I have never seen Xanadu :)

  9. I'm pretty sure I just watched this for the first time about a year ago or so. Of course, it could be my memory playing tricks on me. If I don't watch a movie at least 5 times, I remember nothing.
