The other day, the hubbinator and I watched Trainwreck. If you haven’t seen the movie, the leading man loves the Billy Joel song Uptown Girl. It is played several times through the story and I too have a soft spot for Billy’s music, but it wasn’t until the end when they played one of my favorites: A Matter of Trust.
Now, like most fans, I knew I had acquired several of his records (which I had since gotten rid of) but I had thought I’d purchased the CDs. I made a mental note to search for them but in the meantime, I added the songs I’d liked to my MP3 cart on amazon. But why should I pay for something I already own?
So finally I remembered to look. Turns out I only had his greatest hits album volume 3. But the songs were on there. So I t hen had to go to my PC and rip the music, transfer it to a thumb drive, then plug it into my Mac and open an app that would convert the songs from the windows player file to an MP3 format before moving them to my music files and transferring them to my iPad.
But I have them now at my fingertips. As well as my John Cougar Mellencamp’s greatest hits album. Of course, the hubbinator was disappointed that neither of us had more Billy Joel albums, especially the one with his favorite song: The Ballad of Billy the Kid.
My question for you: Have you ever watched a movie and been reminded of a favorite song that you’ve forgotten?
Until next time.
