Everything on the outside looked like my life was perfect I had this new Corvette. I've. This popular radio show -- in the morning and in that things were really great. But deep inside things weren't so great and I remember going to and an appearance at ports on the lake front on a Friday afternoon. And I'm in my corvettes. And that the stoplight and west esplanade and causeway. This song came on. And I started listening to the words. I had played this on the year and beat me seven but never really paid attention the words that. But I started to listen to the words of this about finding love inside. And I -- -- Corvette on my way to disappearance I actually started to cry. In particular that'd be the part about. If it's what you're going through leads you to a lonely place. Find your love inside and again where is justice a song that it to this day I remember that I remember that moment. The song was it on a magical. Things that put this spell on me but he just. You know it did that do the words just went along with with something I guess that I was feeling at that point in my life without really realizing it and it was it was very meaningful to me.

He's a good man. But it's he has been disabled for the past twenty years and sometimes. That's feels like he doesn't. Have much to live for. Only god knows. Why -- Kid Rock has kind of become an anthem for his life. And you can just noticed him in high spirits when the song comes on. Only god knows why I can't -- and I and I noticed it the Kid Rock is much. Deeper song writers there and I gave him credit for being when I first started hearing Kid Rock stuff just amazing. I hear is attacks that reads in a got a DaVita. Now I can't imagine how and got to defeat health kick it through a tough time it may be worked for you it worked for you. And the text says a life. By approaching him. And here's one -- -- music kept me alive during cancer and during the chemo treatments. Kept to meet pumped and blood throwing. While wanting to give up. Is there a song that you could -- -- in your life that that touched you -- a certain point. And I in particular this that this woman who was born with heart defects as she talks about how the music of Rick Springfield did this is in the movie an affair of the heart. I'm helped her get through a really difficult time in as she ended up meeting Rick and telling him the story at a fans to meet and greet. And you know she she talks about how all the other fans who would there could see that she was telling him a personal sensitive story. And he grew more and more interested in her story. And the fans just kind of backed up and let her have her time. And she and Rick remain friends to this to this day. And again I was just one thing that was really surprising about this this documentary an affair at the harnesses that his music. That touch people and I didn't really expect. Rick Springfield music to touch people but that that does happen. Mean I can think of I can think of a few songs by the Goo Goo Dolls -- says -- that are inspiring to me that.

It's an old movie now. But it's a brilliant movie and it should be studied by film classes -- -- direction the writing the way to soundtrack is weaved through the show. It's it's a funny movie. But it's also very touching movie it deals with every different aspect of a human relationships aren't -- the the boss who's attracted to the younger secretary. And his wife finds out about that. It's the guy who's in love with his best friend's wife and I can't say anything about it it's about the guy who is cheated on and he. Goes in and goes off and he's alone but he he finds somebody. ID Hugh Grant praised placing new prime minister of great Britain and I he meets somebody as the single prime minister. That is a very unlikely partner for him. To me it's a very endearing movie and look I'm I'm gonna admit. That it -- there these different vignettes that all come together in the answer it's brilliantly done there's there's. One vignette that might be considered adult oriented and having you know. See anything but it might be considered somewhat adult orient etc. we are currently preparing for the third Jane may be nothing lower than not -- -- It's about standing ends for an adult movie. And their their status I mean you're seeing anything of the adult movie but there's their stay Indians. And so there'd there'd have to stand in when the you know the lights are being done now for the real ones to come in and do the scenes single CNN -- saints but anyway they have -- they have to cut casual conversations while they're standing in that you know sort of in different. Well again I don't don't don't don't give -- away they're not doing anything but I I couldn't help but.

It's valued at 85 dollars when you hear the Dixie consulate itself if you -- caller don't you about the number you win the French market coffee gift basket from WWL. The Los Christmas in New Orleans it in this in this movie with Rick Springfield a documentary. About an affair of the heart. There's an interfaith minister. Who talks about how she was gang raped. And her connection with Rick Springfield came when after she was gang raped -- he had released. An album it was titled shock. Denial. Anger acceptance. Is -- 2004. After this horrific ordeal. She had a hard time getting man that she had a hard time getting angry. At the man who had done this tour. And that really prohibit -- her healing process because she couldn't get mad at them it it it it didn't allow her to -- it to heal. But she says that -- anger that was expressed in this this album shock denial anger acceptance. The anger expressed and an album gave her permission to get angry at the guys who raped her. She said that was the beginning of her healing process. And again I wouldn't have thought that Rick Springfield would have been an artist that would have some touch people. Any there's an artist who really seems to care a lot about his stand and and there are other rock stars did that feel that way as well but I was I was very impressed with this and just couldn't help me think about -- think about. Some of the songs that have helped me through three times and some of the songs I think give touch my target it to advertisers seem to be the soundtrack of of my life. Arrive at different times say the name of the movie again love what I didn't understand what you said the movie is titled love. Actually. With Yugoslav actually from the very beginning of the movie it it talks about people coming together today at Heathrow. Airport in London. And it's not long after 9/11 and again I don't wonder -- I can't reveal the movie to you because even -- I tell you about it you'd need to feel it's a movie that you do too but again it's it's it's a funny movie this is not a tear Jerker. But very very relatable and able. It will take you through all the different aspects of human relationships. And all of these people come together in the end it just again it's brilliantly brilliantly done that statistic it's a really good feel good movie for the holidays.
