I am in the best mood right now. I have been literally dancing around my living room. The dog has joined in.
And I didn’t even win the Powerball.
No, I’m watching That Thing You Do on Encore. And I defy anyone to be in a bad mood when that movie is on.
I’ve watched the film before…at least seven or eight times, I would guess. But every time I do, I am struck by the positive energy and sheer happiness radiating from every frame. I’m sure if they filmed me watching the movie, I would be grinning from ear to ear (when I’m not moved to tears).
I’m also amazed at how many times they play the title song “That Thing You Do,” and how it never seems to get old. It’s like the engine driving the film, and every time they play it, the movie gets another burst of life and energy.
There it goes again! Gotta dance.
