I recently unearthed a school art project of a LP album cover I had made at the tender age of 16. It was a cover made for the soundtrack to the film 'Melody (S.W.A.L.K.)'. This prompted an internet search for a copy of the album. I was overjoyed to find one and paid a fortune to get it. The original was given to my girlfriend at the time and cost only a couple of pounds. When I first saw the film that prompted the original purchase, I was 16. I was in love. And I had turned my every waking moment to my girlfriend. In short, this film mirrored my life at the time. Listening to the tracks has recaptured 'Love's Young Dream' and I would love to be able to get a VHS copy. I don't think I would be disappointed to see it again as this film is timeless.
