A young orphaned French girl befriends the son of a poor farmer, and together they try and come to terms with the realities of death. 

I was trying to track down the name of this film for about a year. I saw it many years ago and loved it, but it was during a period where I watched crazy amounts of film, so the details got lost somewhere inside my brain. But today I was reminded of the name! It's one of my favourites.
'Forbidden Games'. A film by See it if you get the chance to. It's hard to get.

Trans-X 'Living on Video'

Simply one of the greatest songs of all time.
Also, I want a Roland SH-101 keytar!

Trans-X were, song conceptually, on point. The themes on their '83 record 'Living on Video' were indicative of the new technological booms of the time as well as being sweet future trips.
For example, a song written in the 80's called  'Through the Eyes of the 90's'.
The rest of the record wasn't as solid as this single, but still, it does what it does well.

SMOG- Bathysphere

I listened to this today and cried.
Probably my favourite Smog song, off my favourite Smog record.

Heartbreaking. Beautiful.
