High Fidelity :: Soundtrack Shout Out
A movie centered around a record store based on a book by Nick Hornby starring John Cusack with an amazing soundtrack, how could I possibly resist this movie, I mean, so many things I love all in one film, amazing. I spent many years working in record stores, and many more years haunting them almost religiously, feeding my never sated hunger for new music. Probably due to this life fact I enjoyed the scenes in the record store the best in the film, a close second would be the scenes with Rob and his record collection, and Rob making his music mixes. There is also a character named Laura who does not die, though the movie starts at the death of her and Rob’s relationship (it is revived though, so does that break my name/character curse?).
Did I mention how great the soundtrack is to this film?

The “Monday tape”
My own top 5’s on Tuesdays were inspired by the book and movie, High Fidelity. Also, “Tell Laura I Love Her” mentioned in the “Top 5 Songs about death” conversation is another “Laura/death” connection.
