Old movies, old memories


The house is empty, and I have some rare free time. I turned on the iPod and randomly chose Eddie and The Cruisers Soundtrack. Any one remember that one from the 80’s? I had such a crush on the main actor, and when the music started my mind instantly pictured a young teen flopped on the couch being lost in the story. How about Valley Girl? You know, back when Nicolas Cage was young and unknown. I loved Sid and Nancy, which should show what my mood was. Young and angst ridden. 🙂  And anything with Val Kilmer, sigh.  You might recall the more well know titles from the 80’s Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Some Kind of Wonderful.  I remember seeing Coal Miner’s Daughter at the drive in, and the movie the Deep from the 70’s ruined deep water enjoyment for me.What movies bring back strong memories for you?
