Eban & Charley

I’m listening to this soundtrack album, because the Magnetic Fields played a song from it when we saw them last week and it made me want to hear more.  I didn’t know anything about the film, but its IMDb plot keywords are

Gay Romance | Deaf Mute | Gay Interest | Harmonica | Homosexual Teenager

Kind of sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?  Sadly, the only review on the IMDb begins:

This film is offensive and admirable at the same time. A kind of message movie about the loveliness of adult-adolescent gay romances, the film actually does have some guts because it allows everyone a fair chance to make their case. But the film itself is so bad!

I’d still quite like to see it based on that, but it doesn’t appear to be available anywhere, despite only having come out in 2000.

Anyway, the music is very good.  I do like story songs.  I think this is the first CD album I’ve bought in…um, longer than I can remember.  I get all my music off the internet now.  But it’s not as much fun – the CD case even comes with the lyrics printed inside!  If I weren’t at work I’d be singing along.

One thought on “Eban & Charley

  1. I adore Eban & Charley, I have it on dvd. I really liked it alot and the fact that Stephin Merritt did the soundtrack makes it even betterl. Anything he touches is golden.
