Sugar High :: Coyote Shivers, with Renée Zellweger
from the film, Empire Records
Some days I miss working at a record store, the way it felt to come in every day to a job being surrounded by music and working with other people who loved music the way you do – people who were not just co-workers, but a “found family“, our own band of misfits, our own gang of lost boys and girls.
Empire Records is one of my feel good, go-to comfort movies. Watching it makes me feel like Gina feels, singing on that rooftop, that exuberant, giddy kind of happy. I am forever grateful to music and movies, books and art, and people, who help me find that kind of happy in me.
