On the Dark Side

More often than not I listen to music when I am on the computer. I leave it on random, although every now and then I pick and choose if there is a song I am in the mood to hear. Tonight is a random night. It is also a Windows Media Player night because iTunes and I are currently not playing well with each other in that I cannot successfully upgrade to the latest version (grr), which is really annoying when you have a song you specifically want to download (and a gift card). Happily, Amazon now lets you download songs so I bought it ("Just Can't Get Enough" by Depeche Mode) from them instead (take that Apple). I really wanted the song. And it was imperative I was able to hear it right that minute.

As I was typing my last post one of the songs that came on was "On the Dark Side" from the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers," which is an awesome movie. It is also one of the last movies James and I watched on Sunday Surprise and movie night before he passed away. He had never seen it and I love it so we put it on the Netflix list (let's see how many "sponsor plugs" I can get in this post-we loved to look for them in movies so it's fitting).

It turned out James did not share my high opinion of "Eddie and the Cruisers." (I still don't get that. How could you not LOVE "Eddie and the Cruisers?"). My favorite part is the very end when the scruffy man is watching the news story about the night Eddie disappeared and you just KNOW it is Eddie. (The fact they made a sequel kind of gives that away). It just gives me chills.

So the movie ends and I'm excited about how much I just love that part and James just looked at me and said "so, we could have just skipped to that part?" At least he liked the song "On the Dark Side," which in his opinion was the movie's only saving grace.

I am shaking my head and smiling at this memory.

Good memories. I've never seen the movie, but I LOVE Depeche Mode.
