3, 2, 1 ... Lift Off!

Hi there. DD here. Pete’s wife. According to him there’s infinite space on this blog. And he needs a soundtrack expert. What’s my qualification for being a soundtrack expert? Nada. I’d like to think I represent a musically uneducated every-(wo)man. These soundtrack reviews are about what makes me feel good. They are heavily biased. In no particular order. And hopefully make you feel good too. In the interest of bringing good feels, here is my first soundtrack review: Hidden Figures Let me qualify that there is much to say about this movie, its reflection on women who were courageous and historically significant.
