Footage: A Matter of Life and Death (Stairway to Heaven), 1946, featuring, among others, David Niven and Kim Hunter.
Quick reminder to self, to show (almost) 14-y-o daughter, who’s very very into 1980s music these days. There’s no getting around this one.
Also remember Psycho Killer!
Footage: Wim Wender’s Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire), 1987.
Dang, well go ahead and see and hear it on YouTube, then.
However insignificant, one is fatherly proud that The Clash ranks high among one’s 13-year-old daughter’s personal favourites, without any trace of parental influence (to one’s knowledge).
I know I posted a now removed YouTube clip of it last summer so here goes. Also, it would appear, because one’s 13-year-old daughter seems to prefer it (and tonnes of other 1980s not-so-mainstream bands and performers) over Justin Bieber, One Direction and all that jazz – needless to say to her father’s great pride and relief.
And, of course, because apparently everything is going straight to hell.
