Can I admit that I'm not sure how I feel about the updated version of Footloose that comes out next month? Why, you ask? Well, I was raised on the original. It was one of the first soundtracks I ever owned. I had a HUGE crush on Kevin Bacon when I was a teen. And, to top it off, the movie was filmed near where I live and work. Remember the mill where Wren worked and where they held the dance? Well, they filmed it at the Lehi Roller Mills, which I drive by every morning on my way to work. The school I teach at is basically on the same lot as the mill, but we're behind where the mill sits. (The mill still runs and has some amazing products at their "Lehi Roller Mills" site that they sell. All of their flour and mixes are amazing! We give them as gifts all the time, and I stop in to pick flour up for daily use.)
Here's the original release, in case you haven't seen it in a long time:
Anyway, I'm feeling a lot of mixed feelings about the newest release. Here's that release. What do you think?
