‘Sing’ The Animated Musical Is Very Entertaining, Great Songs & Quite The Yarn.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access IMDb.com listing for “Sing”.


singWe saw “Sing”, at the ‘Regal 10, in Concord (New Hampshire), on Monday.

We had seen the trailers many times on TV and it looked like our type of show. And it was.

It was very good. I would watch it again and I only watch the very BEST of animated movies more than once.

The songs, and the soundtrack, even IF I leave dear Cat Stevens aside, was memorable. The sound was rich, clear and powerful.

Decent animation BUT not up to the recent exalted standards set by Pixar or Dreamworks. The resolution and texture of the furs and skins was what we used to see routinely 5 years ago. But, nonetheless still decent and very watchable.

Good family movie, sans caveats. Highly recommended.

‘Sing’ The Animated Musical Has A Snippet Of Cat Steven’s “The Wind” — MAGICAL.

It is by NO means one of the featured, full-length songs.

It is but a snippet, background music snuck in during a ‘Pool House’ scene.

BUT, it was electric. Gave me GOOSE BUMPS as soon as I heard the opening chords.

OH! Cat Stevens!

Cat Stevens. Cat Stevens. Cat Stevens.

What a WASTE. What a SHAME.

I grew up, in London, at the same time as Donovan and The Cat. I got to see Donovan (seated next to his beloved (actual) Aunt), but, alas, never The Cat.

But, I was a DEVOTEE.

Thought he was God. I always so venerated him for his talents and looks. I so wished I had 1 billionth of his looks — so that I might pull one or two chicks.

What a SHAME. Why? Why? Why?

The Wind” is from his 1971 album “Teaser and the Firecat“. I owned it as I did all of his albums up to the 1975 ‘Numbers’.

I wonder how many people watching “Sing” recognize the song. Know the name.

To me, this snippet, which was probably no more than 20-seconds was the HIGHLIGHT of what was a very good (and I plan to watch it again) movie.

Just wanted to share with you and give you a heads up.

Pretty simple.

Just do any Google Image search, for example ‘Anura Guruge’.

Then, once the image results are displayed TYPE “Atari Breakout” in the Search Trench (field) at the Top.

Bob will then be your uncle. Enjoy.

U.S. productivity is still way too high despite all of the distractions available through the Web. We have to get it down to stimulate job hiring.

This “Atari Breakout” will definitely help. Please play for at least 4 hours today. Help the U.S. create more jobs.

Disclaimer. I didn’t actually play! I was just taking the screenshot shown above. Video games don’t do much for me. So don’t bother me saying that you scored 32,000,000,000. Bully for you.
