empire records

what i did yesterday:

1. went late night shopping and bought the empire records soundtrack.
the cult movie came out 1995 and it has always been one of my favourite comedy dramas. (ahhh... the 90's flannel shirts, undercuts, short tartan skirts, knee high socks, goths and kurt cobain.)

anyway, enough reminiscing. this movie has had a cult following from my generation because like myself, majority of those who watched the movie longed for the lives of those jaded teens. and who could blame us, how cool would it be to work in a music store, hang out with your best friends, listen to music and not to mention the upside of having a boss that is more of a friend than an authoritative figure.

i've had the dvd for as long as i could remember and have watched it 100 times, i just don't know why it has taken me this long to add the soundtrack to my cd collection.

if your a 90's kiddo like me you will appreciate the artists featured on this cd such as the cranberries, edwin collins and one of our very own... the cruel sea. the only down fall... so many good songs from the movie were not included in the soundtrack. eg. video killed the radio star by the buggles and money (that's what i want) by the flying lizards.

this movie is a must see, put it on your 'bucket list'.

favourite track from the cd: #1 till i hear it from you - gin blossoms
favourite quote from the movie: we mustn't dwell... no, not today. We CAN'T. Not on Rex Manning day.~
favourite character: all of them check out the cast on this website. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112950/fullcredits

  1. I just Netflixed it. I can't believe I haven't seen it! Have you seen "High Fidelity"? It sounds like a similar premise. It has John Cusack-- who doesn't love John Cusack?

  3. andrea... yes high fidelity was great! i loved todd louiso's character dick... hated jack black, but then again i cant stand him full stop.

    penny... you will either love or hate empire records, its just one of those movies.
    nirvana was such a vital band in australia, i don't think i would have survived my high school years without them.
