Movie Quote of the Day – The Sapphires, 2013 (dir. Wayne Blair)
Dave: Before we go again, girls, when I met you, you were doing your country and western thing and that’s fine, we all make mistakes. But here’s where we learn from that mistake. Country and western music is about loss. Soul music is also about loss. But the difference is, in country and western music, they’ve lost, they’ve given up and they are just at home whining about it. In soul music they are struggling to get it back, and they haven’t given up, so every note that passes through your lips should have the tone of a woman who’s grasping and fighting and desperate to retrieve what’s been taken from her. You understand? Now, what it is you’re searching for, that’s up to you.
