Love, love, love this film
1 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid, growing up in the 70s, my parents had a stereo unit with an 8track player. It was so much fun pushing in the tape and pressing the track buttons. Unfortunately, the player eventually broke and my parents decided to buy a new stereo unit, without an 8track player, much to my dismay. The 8-track tapes that we had made their way to the trash bin soon afterward. It wasn't until 1997, in Philadelphia, when I attended a screening of the film "So Wrong They're Right", that I remembered the 8-track tape. Watching these people speak about their 8 track collections was fascinating, and made me want to go out and start my own collection...which I did!

The people interviewed in the film were not nostalgic, or trying to re-live their youth, but rebelling against the culture of forced consumerism that is still very prevalent today (think VHS tapes vs DVD's). I truly enjoy listening to the music on an 8track as opposed to a CD. One thing I noticed was that if I set the volume on my stereo...play a CD, and then play an 8-track tape...the volume when the 8-track played would be much louder than the CD, all without adjusting the volume. Just one of the many things to love about 8-tracks! Long live the 8-track!
