I love old songs, may be because I have grown up to a household that listens to “oldies but goodies” music every Sunday morning. Actually, I miss my parents who just normally sit together and listen to songs of yesteryears.
I got the privilege to check out the soundtrack (actually also a signed copy) of a movie which will be released today in cinemas, The Identical.
The IDENTICAL tells the compelling story of twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression. DREXEL HEMSLEY becomes an iconic 50’s rock ’n’ roll star, while RYAN WADE (Blake Rayne) struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his father. The Reverend Wade (Ray Liotta) and his wife (Ashley Judd) are sure their adopted son has been gifted and called by God to be a preacher. But Ryan challenges his parent’s vision for his life, and unflinchingly chooses to launch his own music career with his best friend (Seth Green). Encouraged by his wife (Erin Cottrell) and employer (Joe Pantoliano), Ryan embarks on an unpredictable, provocative path – performing the legendary music of Drecel Hemsley in sold out venues all across the country. As the brothers destinies tragically collide, Ryan discovers that Drexel is his identical twin which leads him to question everything he’s ever believed about God, family, and his own identity.
The soundtrack has 12 tracks :
- City Lights
- Nashville Tonight
- Your Love’s Keepin’ Me Tonight
- Gypsy Man
- Mellow Down Easy
- Sumthen Boucha
- Born for a Reason
- Everybody Knows It
- Burnin’ Rubber
- It Don’t Come Easy
- Angel of Mine
- One Child
I love the songs of this sound track, it gave me a “homey” feel. I just close my eyes and I feel like I am back at home sitting in our porch and listening as the radio is blasting some 50’s songs.
I have some few favorites like “Your Love’s Keepin’ Me Tonight” and “Angel of Mine”, which are love songs, but as a mom, they can also be endearment and lullaby songs for your children.
I was also able to watch in advance the movie, “The Identical” and found the story very heart warming. As a reflection, I realized that just like in the story, we sometimes turn away from what God really wants for us but just the same, He still welcomes us with open arms whenever we come back and seek for Him. In fact I have quoted a line that Louise Wade (portrayed by Ashley Judd) said in the film :
“The love of God seeks us in every situation and desires good. If He is in your dreams, nothing can stand against them…”
