Official Opinions: The Sounds of Summer

Since I’m a college student and will do just about anything to avoid studying for final exams until the last possible moment, I’m a Netflix subscriber. Let me tell you, Netflix Instant Play is dangerous – especially when you find one of your favorite movies on it. I couldn’t resist the urge to watch “Stand By Me” the other day and forgot how much I loved the music in it.
