Music and Lyrics

Hugh Grant is one of the few actors I feel almost unqualified delight in. In my next incarnation I want to be that charming.

But that doesn’t mean I’ll watch anything Grant has starred in or instantly add a new film to my Netflix queue.

So I put off Music &M Lyrics for months. Drew Barrymore remains to me the girl in the first Poison Ivy movie (if that sounds condescending consider the sequels).

I’m afraid I’ll be disappointed. Instead I was charmed.

I can’t imagine anyone who wasn’t amused by the 1980s style music videos for the imaginary UK pop music group Pop. I couldn’t decide if it was meant to be Wham. Probably just a collective summation of the feel of the period.

The theme was one of the oldest in romantic comedies: producing entertainment product. Back when it would’ve been a musical. In the 21st century it is a new song for a Jessica-Britney-Christina-Shakira clone. The formula still works. Or at least for me. If a romantic comedy makes me feel at all good I tend to suspend critical response.

So I had an uncritical good time watching Music &M Lyrics.

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about Music and Lyrics.
