Now available on Blu-ray/DVD/VOD – Sing Street (giveaway ends 8/12/16)



The weather outside is “frightful,” and I don’t mean cold. It’s way too hot to be outside. Here in NY we’ve been having a heat wave. The heat and humidity is horrific, which no relief in sight. I cannot wait for the fall weather to arrive. Summer is my least favorite season.

If you are like me, you are probably looking for ways to entertain yourself indoors where the air conditioner can keep you cool and comfortable. One of my favorite indoor activities is watching movies, both at the theater and at home.

There is a new film available on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD (Video on Demand) you might be interested in. It’s called Sing Street.

Sing Street is a feel-good, coming of age story written and directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again) featuring the ultimate soundtrack of the 80’s.


Sing Street takes us back to 1980’s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher.

He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band… yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos

Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s (Once, Begin Again) life and love for music, Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

The film is rated PG-13.

Check out the film’s trailer.


I am a child of the 80’s. I graduated high school in 1986. I remember all too well the music, the hair, the fashion. Seeing the film’s trailer brought me back to a more simpler time. The 80’s were pretty wild with the big hair, neon clothing and weird music – but it was also a fun time. If anything stands out the most about that decade it’s the music.

Check out the songs featured in the movie’s soundtrack.

Sing Street Soundtrack

I’ve had the song “Pop Muzik” stuck in my mind ever since I read that title on the soundtrack list.

Radio, video
Boogie with a suitcase
Your livin’ in a disco
Forget about the rat race
Let’s do the milkshake, sellin’ like a hotcake
Try some buy some fee-fi-fo-fum

This looks like a fun, coming of age film. I’m looking forward to seeing myself.
