so i found myself this morning needing a "monday" song. you know the kind -- sunday, bloody sunday, but cheerier. i rifled through my mental file cabinet and stumbled upon a 1980's classic, the bangles' hit, manic monday.
of course, one thing led to another, and the next thing you know, i was over at imdb, looking at entry for the allnighter, a god-awful movie starring Bangles front-woman, susanna hoffs. (i not kidding about god-awful. the allnighter only rated a 3.5 out of 10 on the imdb scale of awesome. for frame of reference, gymkata pulled a 3.8, steel dawn pulled a 4.2, and, quite possibly the worst movie ever made, soul man pulled a 4.7. )
my favorite part about the allnighter entry was that the powers that be over at imdb suggested that those who enjoyed the allnighter would also enjoy the notebook (rated 8.0, btw). while that might be true, i'm not sure the recommendation works in the reverse. just sayin'.
but anyway, the song is why we are here, so to avoid further delay...
and...because i can't mention u2 without playing u2, one of the greatest bands of my lifetime, i give you sunday, bloody sunday.
