Like some of you, I caught the "rent a video" bug in the mid-1980's.
I remember going to the store one weekend and finding a British movie called "Melody" from 1971. I read that it featured the music of The Bee Gees so that was enough to rent and watch the movie. I don't think that the movie was released in the US.
Frankly, it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable movies that I've ever seen. It did not win any awards or get inducted in some Hall of Fame but it was entertaining.
"Melody" was the story of a boy and girl living that "moment" when we all figure out that boys and girls are different.
You can call it your "first crush" moment! Remember that time when you kept looking at some girl across the room? Remember how she looked back? Remember the Friday night dance with all of the boys on one side and the girls on the other?
"Melody" was very nice and the music was fabulous, specially "First of May", one of the greatest songs from The Bee Gees' repertoire.
Rent "Melody" and you will enjoy it, specially if you were once a 12-year old boy with a crush on a cute girl in 6th grade.
