This week’s share:

Led Zeppelin “Going To California”

I’ve always loved Zeppelin. This song popped into my mind the moment my oldest son informed me that he’d be going to California, and since it’s happening this week, I decided to share it. Hope you enjoy.

A to Z Challenge: “O” Out of the Furnace “Release Me” #OutOfTheFurnace #PearlJam #ReleaseMe #AtoZChallenge

I’ve joined in for the A to Z challenge this year which runs from April 1st to the 30th. My choice of theme is Music from Favorite Films. I’ll be sharing the songs in order of film title and will write a little about my thoughts on the movie as well.

My movie choice for “O” is Out of the Furnace starring Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Shepherd.

The film is about two brothers who are both struggling to re-enter society due to different circumstances. Russell (Bale) has just been released from jail after serving time for driving while intoxicated which caused a horrific accident resulting in deaths. He returns home to his girlfriend, who has moved on with another man; his brother , who struggles  with demons from multiple tours he endured in Iraq; a dead-end job as a mill worker; and  a deceased father. Rodney (Affleck), Russell’s brother, is bare-fist boxing for money to help pay for his gambling debts to John (Dafoe), a bar owner/bookie he’s involved with. Russell tries to steer him in the right direction.

Russell: “Come work at the mill. There’s nothing wrong with working for a living.”

Rodney: “Working for a living? I gave my life for this country and what’s it done for me? Huh? What’s it done for me?!!” Continue reading “A to Z Challenge: “O” Out of the Furnace “Release Me” #OutOfTheFurnace #PearlJam #ReleaseMe #AtoZChallenge”

A to Z Challenge: Music from Favorite Films – “B” Boys on the Side “You Got It” #AtoZChallenge

I’m joining in for the A to Z challenge this year which runs from April 1st to the 30th. My choice of theme is Music from Favorite Films. I’ll be sharing the songs in order of film title and will write a little bit about my thoughts on the movie as well.

It was hard to choose just one movie for “B” due to all the favorites: Braveheart, The Blues Brothers, Biodome, Blade, Billy Madison…and the list goes on. Ultimately, Boys on the Side wins out because of the emotional impact the movie had on me, and because one of the characters in the movie is a singer/musician. With The Blues Brothers being a big favorite and jam-packed with music, I’ll likely share it for “T” later on.
