Irrationally Happy Time

October 7, 2008 erinstine


Yo Gabba Gabba is a crazy good kids show on Nick Jr. – and this particular bit with the Ting Tings covering Altered Images’ Happy Birthday has inspired me to reconstruct the whole soundtrack to one of my favorite movies of all time, Sixteen Candles.  Apparently the soundtrack was never released commercially, so I’m going to have to buy them all from Captain iTunes.

    That’s awesome! Personally, I always preferred Some Kind of Wonderful and Pretty in Pink. Dave had never seen Pretty in Pink and we watched it the other night, now he is acquainted with the class warfare of high school in the 80s.

    Oh snap, I love both of those too. I still maintain that Some Kind of Wonderful has one of the best kissing scenes ever in a movie. Hottt.
