Title: You and Me
Artist: Penny & the Quarters
Album: Blue Valentine Soundtrack
Year Released: 2011
I rented the movie Blue Valentine this week. Trust me, don't do it. What a depressing mess it was. I just wanted to put the lead characters out of their misery. Two hours later, I was just as miserable as they were. Good thing I only paid a $1 at Redbox.
There was a song featured in the movie that was supposed to be the couple's "our song". I had never heard it before and it stuck in my head. I did some research and it turns out that the song was a demo recorded on the Ohio soul label Prix in the early 1970s. The producers of the movie are trying to locate the singers on this record. You'd think someone would recognize it. I'm doing my part and featuring it on Friday Sock Hop.
So enjoy this new, old song! I sure did.
