The Commitments
Suggested by Candice Cronin

I don't know how many of you folks out there have a passion for old rock n' roll the way I do. Hard driven, rhythm and blues-based, sung from the soul. It's a solid joy to hear. Why else would it be so popular in movie soundtracks? But, a few years ago, somebody finally captured the pure essence of that heartfelt music. Oddly enough, though, it took a trip to Ireland to find it. Thanks to the recommendation of one of my loyal patients, I've learned to enjoy this movie and its soundtrack all over again.
The Commitments tells the story of young Jimmy Rabbitte, and his quest to form the best soul music band in the land. Problem is, Jimmy is smack in the middle of North Dublin, Ireland. If he can pull this off, it'll be a rippin' miracle, 'cause, well, Ireland ain't known for its collection of r&b musicians, you know? But, as Jimmy explains to the ragtag group he scrounges together, soul music is considered to be "black music," and, in his words, "the Irish are the blacks of England, and Dubliners are the blacks of the Irish, and North Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin." There's got to be soul music somewhere in that logic, right?
And, when all the pieces start to fit together, and all the voices finally blend, it is indeed pure soul music, from the hard bass thump to the wailing horns to the hard-voiced lead.
