Use Me by Elissa Schappell Use Me

Use Me tells the life story of a daddy's girl named Evelyn, from her teenage trip to France with her parents and kid sister, through her wild youth and her dad's long battle with cancer, right up to her metamorphosis into a mother of a 2-year-old son who adores vintage punk rock and is slow to give up nursing.

UB40 take their favorite songs from other artists and do them in reggae style. Labour of Love is chock full of stellar material. From Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross" to the Melodians' "Sweet Sensation" to Johnny Clarke's "Keep On Moving," this album serves as an excellent reggae starter kit.

  U2 - The Joshua Tree U2 - Joshua Tree
U2 was probably the best band of the 1980s, and this album is their absolute masterwork. The Joshua Tree is dedicated to Greg Carroll, a young member of U2's road crew killed in a motorcycle accident. The lyrics suggest a better world that "we need new dreams tonight". And the last track is especially solemn: "Mothers of the Disappeared" concerns those tragic women who gather in public squares in Latin American dictatorships, imploring the authorities for news of their sons and daughters, missing presumed imprisoned or dead.
In the lyric sheet the Dublin rock band U2 invites us to join Amnesty International.
A "must have".

"Five criminals of slightly different stripes are busted and put in a police lineup for a crime they didn't commit. They soon discover that fate--and perhaps more earthly forces--brought them together. Terrific cast makes the most of Christopher McQuarrie's intriguing, Oscar-winning, but convoluted script." (Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide)

The acting is fabulous, the screenplay so complex that it leaves the viewer in awe. As one actor said himself (although about a different film) the pyrotechnics are emotional. The whole cast is amazing although Kevin Spacey stands out above all others. The ending is one of the most shocking you will ever see, and you will think about it for days after you see it.
