Monday Movie Music Moment

Fewf – how’s that for an alliteration? Well, everybody – you’re well aware it’s Monday. That often means for some early week blues, a morning punctuated with yawns and coffee re-fills, and getting made fun of for already wanting to plan your next weekend. So let’s see if we can relieve the Monday tension, (hopefully) put a smile on your face, and even better –  make your toe tap. Here’s a movie music moment that goes down in history as one of the best film entrances ever made: John Cryer, (who we now all know as the man who’s fortunately no longer one of two [or a half] men alongside the crazed Charlie Sheen) as a 1986 teenager named Duckie, who like the rest of America that year – just wanted Molly Ringwald’s attention. Sit back and enjoy the famous Pretty in Pink performance of without a doubt one of my favourite songs of all time – “Try A Little Tendernessby Otis Redding. Take  it away, Duckie.

About Jess Huddleston

Jess (@JessHuddles) is the music mama and song savvy nut of in a nutshell. Since she was young, Jess has noticed new acts, harassed people to find out what tune is playing and asked everyone to repeat themselves because she's plugged in. After completing a journalism degree at Carleton University, Jess stepped into the world of communications, music publicity and magazine writing, while still making time each day to share sounds. Although this funny gal also has a strong passion for fashion and all things pop culture, you're most likely to hear her rave that a particular song or album will "change your life." * Bad Habit: Smart Food. * Favourite Food: Avocado everything. * Favourite Restaurant: La Carnita. * Wine of Choice: Merlot. * Favourite Band/Artist(s): The Boss, Ryan Adams, The Walkmen, Band of Horses. * Favourite Song: All Springsteen songs, "Sweet Thing" by Van Morrison, “Bennie and the Jets" by Elton John, "I Go To The Barn" by Band of Horses and "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding. * Fashion Icon: Emily Weiss. * Favourite Movie: Only You, Forrest Gump, The Departed. * TV series: Breaking Bad or Friends. * Sport: Basketball and Soccer. * Team: Duke... but, realistically, Florida. * Blackberry or Iphone: iPhone. * Favourite Books: The Great Gatsby, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and all Kerouac.
