On the Verge of “The Molly Ringwald”

You may have asked this question.  What do the Reallyz have to do with “the Breakfast Club,” “Sixteen Candles” or ” Molly Ringwald?”  In Sixteen Candles, Molly Ringwalds character Samantha spends the entire movie longing for a relationship, love, happiness, and to be “visible” to any guy and espescially Jake Ryan.  Finally after her sisters crazy wedding the man of her dreams is waiting for her, and asks her to make a wish.  “My wish has already came true.” She says.  Two years later in 1985 “The Breakfast Club” is released and portrays a story of teens in detention at school on a Saturday.  There are some unbelievably great scenes in this movie, if you remember the marijuana scene when Emilio Estevez pumps iron after just one hit.  Allisons make over by Claire (Molly Ringwald), and of coarse the famous “Molly Ringwald Dance.

Now….are the Reallyz on the verge of “The Molly Ringwald?”  Some theorists say the Reallyz do have an 80’s essance, a certain flavor or move, almost unexplainable feeling that brings emotion.  Its true that some of the Reallyz lyrics identify with the longing or visibility aspects that “Molly Ringwalds” character portrays in “Sixteen Candles.”  Its also true that the Reallyz vibe in the rock funk song “Shes On Fire,” teeters on the brink and plays on the verge of such a paradigm.  “Shes On Fire” starts with a guitar riff and then piles it on when the bass and drums converge with the riff.  The lyrics portray the love of a girl when she is seen, heard, felt, and longed for.  Her fire make his temperature rise for the things he cant have.  He’s burning up and longing like “Molly Ringwalds” character in “Sixteen Candles,” and feeling like dancing when locked up in detention on a Saturday.
