Hedwig and the Angry Inch...

Cher has Nuttin' on Hedwig baby!



How the HELL did this movie slip under the radar?? It's one of the best musicals ever, and while it's not totally serious, it's not total fluff either, like most musicals. And, have I said, the music is unbelievably great.




Wicked Little Town...This may be one of the most simple and beautiful songs ever written. No matter how many times I hear it, it still makes me weep. I believe among other things, it tells the story of the origin of art.


If this song isn't pure fun, then I DON'T KNOW what IS...


Music that takes you for a ride to the far reaches of the soul.

Isn't Hedwig so good? I like to ride around with DTG and sing along to it in the car.

Hedwig is brilliant. I used to love riding around and singing with my bro too! He had a old Mercury, "The Merc" and we'd ride around with the windows down jamming away!

Must confess I'd never heard of Hedwig before. Thanks for enlarging my horizons ;)

Consider yourself blogrolled btw :D

I'm happy to do what little I can for our species.

There is so much to experience and love and enjoy... I think it's sort of a moral imperative to share the things we enjoy.

Oh, and you are being rolled as well.
Have a groovy Sunday WR,

This is one of a half dozen movies that I actually own.

Hey DTG,

I have the soundtrack, but I want the movie. We sort of stopped collecting movies around the time Harley was born.

Maybe it will be my christmas present to myself this year. Thanks for stopping.

I have Hedwig saved to watch on the DVR, but haven't gotten to it yet. I will do so soon.

Love you PF!
