Postcards From America
by Jen Beatty
When I list off movies like Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Reality Bites, Singles, Flashdance, Footloose, and Dirty Dancing, do you recall first a scene from the movie or a song from the film? I thought so. Soundtracks are a major selling point for movies. Hence, Lollipop received four this month for review.
Postcards From America (London) – The Banderas‘ “This Bitter Earth” makes you want to put on a flapper dress and light up a cigarillo. The soundtrack is also tinged with country music (“Jimmy Carter” by Blue Mountain). Personally, I snatched this tape for the 1970s truckin’ classic by Stonewall Jackson “Me and You and a Dog Named Boo.”
