COVER CLASSIC EDWYN COLLINS SINGLE:
“A GIRL LIKE YOU”
Listen to the latest release from blissed out musical soulmates Sarah and Sam – new Anglo Scottish alt-pop duo BLUE VIOLET.
As well as A Girl Like You being an iconic classic by a fellow Scot, Sarah wanted to cover the song because it features on the soundtrack of her favourite film Empire Records.

My favorite specific brand of spn fic is one where Castiel finds someone outside of the Winchesters & Co. to befriend.
You just know he’s down to chill with all the old ladies, because he’s sincerely interested in their lives, and what they’re crocheting, and what little Aiden got Mrs. Gilford for her 80th birthday.
And all the little kids in Lebanon know him too, because of that one time he was working a small case in the library, and he took a minute to help a little girl find a book, and now five-year old gap toothed Jessie with her beaded braids wants her friends to “meet the cool man who told me about dinos.”
And pretty soon he’s at the library again because it’s a peaceful place, and all the librarians are like, head over heels for this respectful, quiet dude who spends loads of time in the classics section. One day he’s reading Oscar Wilde and Marina the librarian bonds with him over queer literature, and soon he’s having lunches with this funny, smart girl.
And then Dean and Sam go out on the town for once, idk why, and they’re gaping at Cas because everyone knows him. Even that random five year old and the sour-faced laundromat owner and the nineteen year old librarian with a little pink, orange, and white pin stuck to her lapel.
I don’t know, just Cas befriending the entire town of Lebanon and learning more about himself in the process.
We love the night and its quiet; and there is no night that we love so well as that on which the moon is coffined in clouds. ― Fitz-James O'Brien, Classic Ghost Stories by Wilkie Collins, M.R. James, Charles Dickens and Others
It’s one brief scene with the boys being back from their trip to Annie’s and Jack (with Pete) coming home from the pub late. Sarah comments on this and not being there for the boys then winds up going up to bed early. Jack himself decides to go for a walk and turn in after (basically brushing off the boys till the morning). Pete, on the other hand, stays behind to look at the boys’ postcards.
Jack: What’s the matter with you?
Sarah: Nothing’s the matter with him. He’s tired. Tired of waiting for you to come home. Do you know what the time is?
Jack: Is there is problem? I didn’t know there was a curfew.
In a follow up scene, Sarah is in bed reading when Jack returns. They continue to be chilly with each other especially after Sarah learns Jack didn’t spend any time at all with the boys. Poor poor Jack ‘can’t seem to do anything right’ and ‘might just not be here.’ (TINY VIOLIN JACK TINY VIOLIN). Well after that, Sarah just turns the light off and discussion done.
Sarah: How could you keep them waiting like that?
Jack: Waiting like what? Been on a two week holiday, Sarah, not a six month trek across the jungle. (DO ONE JACK 🤬).
The saints were his friends, and blessed him; the monsters were his friends and guarded him. So he held long communion with them. He sometimes passed whole hours crouching before one of these statues, in solitary conversation with it. If any one came, he fled like a lover surprised in his serenade.

This was the first British rock n' roll movie. A very tame, sanitised representation of the early rock n' roll scene. It is a miracle that rock thrived in the UK given this parent-friendly blinkered view of blossoming teen culture. Four things to note before watching this movie:
1) There is no actual sinning going on except...
2) One song features the lines;
'You need one for the message, Two for the blow, Three for the benzedrine, And then you Go, Man, Go!'
3) It appears that teenagers in the 50s did indeed dress like substitute geography teachers.
4) The girl dancing in the clip above (from the end of the film) is the late Jackie Collins - bestselling author and sister of Joan.
