This week's theme for Monday Music Moves Me is bands that start with M. Well, two of my favorite band begin with M, so I thought it was going to be a no-brainer - Machine Gun Fellatio and Marianas Trench. The problem is that I didn't want to be a broken record, since I have used both of them in past features already.
I can be repetitive in my day-to-day life so I am making an extra effort not to be repetitive on this site. So, I dug a littler deeper.
Then I remembered Mary Me Jane.
Their album was used as the soundtrack for If Lucy Fell, which is probably one of my favorite video store rental discoveries, ever. It came out in 1996 with a cast of Sarah Jessica Parker, Eric Schaeffer, Ben Stiller, Elle Macpherson, and even a 12 year old Scarlett Johansson makes a minor appearance.

Another awesome scene between SJP and Ben Stiller
Oh, and it's about artists. Bonus points right there.
Joe (Eric Schaeffer) is infatuated with Jane (Elle Macpherson) who lives in the adjacent building. He can see her through his window and he
He is dorky and awkward and I absolutely love him in this movie –
he is the perfection of an antihero.
One of my favorite conversations from the movie:
Jane: I love your paintings.
Jane: Yeah, really.
Joe: Can I ask you something?
Joe: Are you involved with anyone?
Jane: Him. (She gestures to the man in the painting entitled 'Limp Dick Man')
Jane: He does have quite a limp dick. But he gives the best damn head ever.
And then Joe gives THEE best shocked/turned on/recoiled expression that I cannot even describe accurately.
Just watch the movie... and of course, enjoy the music as well.
