Great Balls Of Fire and loving today

There wasn't anything much to watch on the movie channel last night except Great Balls Of Fire, the "biographical" Jerry Lee Lewis film from 1989. I thought it a fun, frivolous sort of movie, nothing really in-depth, but the music was great naturally, and of course -- Winona Ryder looked adorable as Lewis' cousin Myra (who was 13 when he married her).

There's one particularly inane scene where Dennis Quaid, as Lewis, drives over to Myra's school; somehow, the song "High School Confidential" starts playing really loudly -- presumably blasting from Lewis' state-of-the-art car stereo -- and all the kids start dancing outside the school, on the stairs, on the pavement, and even around the car (some of them even pop open the hood while dancing; not sure about that). Well, one can't really analyse such a scene too much, but gee -- the clothes sure were cute!

Here's a Myra-inspired "Loving Today" -- enjoy :)

I've seen the movie, but also remember my grandmother commenting on how "evil" Jerry Lee Lewis was for marrying his young cousin. I believe he might be jailed now! Still love his music and the wonderful Fifties clothes.
