Last week I managed to see the film called 'Dream Girls', which showcases Detroit's music activity around the 1960's. I must admit, I dreaded sitting down and actually watching it, as I knew in the back of my mind I would be critical about the songs and musical arrangments. I was right to be apprehensive. The songs did not sound like the era at all and I felt they could have done much better. At one stage I wanted to switch off and do something else. There was some good acting throughout and excellent costumes etc, but it was exactly what I had expected.
