Admit it, there are some songs that bring back memories every time you hear them. Whether it’s thoughts of hitting the open road on your way to the beach (or the shore as Jersey folk like to say) or of a special time in your life, those songs stick with you.
Wouldn’t it Be Nice by the Beach Boys is one of those songs! Being down the shore on summer nights brings the sounds of the Beach Boys to mind for sure. But this song is doubly special because it’s “Our Song.” It was part of the soundtrack for the movie Shampoo which was my first date with my husband. Being without transportation, we went to see the movie together on campus at Villanova. Brings back good memories every time I hear it.
FYI – this song is from the Pet Sounds album which is considered one of the best albums of all time. If you love the Beach Boys like I do, check out Love and Mercy which is the Brian Wilson story and has a lot on the creation of the Pet Sounds album. Fabulous movie.
My two fav animated features are Beauty and the Beast and Anastasia. Seeing live action versions of my two favs this year has been AMAZING! I know I’m not the only who loves these movies given the fandom at the movie theater for B&B and the amazing lines and responses of attendees at the Broadway version of Anastasia!

If there was something we were waiting for more than the live action Beauty and the Beast, it was one of our absolute favorite movies finally making to Broadway: Anastasia!
My daughter and I loved the songs, the history and of course, the romance. It was such an awesome animated movie. When we heard there was talk of a Broadway show, we waited and waited and tomorrow, the big day is finally here! We are going to see Anastasia on Broadway! Yeah!
One of my fav movies of all time is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I was totally charmed by this movie when it came out and really felt like it deserved Best Picture that year. I am therefore counting down the minutes until I go see the live action version. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
For today, I’m sharing this fun clip of 10 Secrets you didn’t know about this Disney classic.
Yes, you read that right! And now thanks to Icelandic broadcaster Nutiminn and the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, you can watch the kittens in their dollhouse-like habitat. The habitat has hidden cameras to record the kitten antics and they are, in a word, adorable.
