Oh she may be weary
And young girls they do get wearied...
This girl sure is wearied all of a sudden.
I miss my boy.
I love The Commitments. I've seen it quite a few times and I still never get tired of the music, the freshness of the actors, and I think they did really great covers of some classic tunes.
Two great quotes from the film came to mind:
"Soul is the music people understand. Sure it's basic and it's simple. But it's something else 'cause, 'cause, 'cause it's honest, that's it. Its honest. There's no fuckin' bullshit. It sticks its neck out and says it straight from the heart. Sure there's a lot of different music you can get off on but soul is more than that. It takes you somewhere else. It grabs you by the balls and lifts you above the shite."
"Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud."
This the other one I like:
Maybe I need to get to Ireland.
