I was feeling a little bit down today. I especially hate feeling down when there is no specific reason. If there is not a reason, how am I suppose to fix it?? So I had a plan. Tonight, I will watch a drama/sad movie, drink some wine, and cry. I read somewhere that crying actually helps make you feel better. I just need a good cry. The first movie that pops into my mind was A Walk to Remember. I love that movie and seriously cried while watching it. I found out, though, that I only have the movie on VHS! I can’t believe it’s been that long! Since my VHS is not plugged in, back up plan is On Demand.
Once on there, the first movie I run into was Annie. I also love that movie! And it was free. 🙂 So Annie it is. I knew it was not going to make me cry. But how can I pass up Annie? Loved that movie since I was little. Can anyone guess my favorite song from it???
I grew up watching all the musical movies. Annie, Anchors Away, Stormy Weather, Take Me Out to the Ball game, etc. All the musicals. Life seemed so much happier then. Drama was a minimum. Songs to always cheer you up. The good old days. 🙂
My peers never even heard of the movies I grew up with. My own husband does not know most of them. Why was I so lucky to be brought up with these movies?? Because my dad was older then all the dads of my peers. He always played his movies from his time. 🙂 And I am still so thankful to him for showing me these great movies. (And I still have a lot of these movies on VHS!)
Have you seen any old musicals? What is your favorite? And if you have not seen any, please try watching a couple. They are really great. 🙂
Well, I did not get my sad movie or my wine. But I am feeling better. Watching Annie brought up some good memories. 🙂
