Calling You — Bagdad Cafe

Any of y’all seen Bagdad Cafe?  I watched it last night with some work friends and fell somewhat in love.  Everything about the film is just a little bit off, a little bit oblique, with touches of camp.  To me it felt like a good short story: untidy characters; rich, indelible, lyrical images; a haunting setting that implies more than it reveals.  Plus we all laughed and laughed.

And this, the theme song of the soundtrack, will stay with me for a long time.

    Man, that song is sooo familiar and I can’t think of where I know it from. Haunting. I will check this movie out. Thanks for the recommendation.
