Does anyone else remember this movie?
Matthew Modine was in the movie.
And he looked like this:
Madonna was in the movie.
And she looked like this.
This was her big hit from the movie:
I loved this movie.
How could I not?
It came out when I was 14.
I had the soundtrack too.
(I was really into movie soundtracks back in the day. Sometimes I still am.)
Fella and I took a trip to Buffalo over the holidays and hit up the Record Theatre music shop.
That place is amazing.
And I found myself a new vinyl copy of the Vision Quest soundtrack for $1.99.
I still love it.
Especially this song:
I picked up some other golden oldies too:
I love vinyl.
I know that's such a hipster thing to say
but it makes listening to music
an event again.
I think I used to feel music more when I was younger.
I think that listening to these records isn't just about the music
but about taking myself back to where I was
whether it was good or bad
it meant something to me.
And for someone who can't remember the lyrics to anything
I remember the lyrics to the songs I loved as a teenager
because I listened to them until they became part of me.
But who cares.
