TVD DVD Giveaway: John Carney’s Sing Street and a pair of Shure Sound Isolating Earphones

If you’re searching for a sublime way to spend a hot summer evening, the DVD release of Sing Street is a fine solution indeed. Sing Street is “a feel-good, coming of age story written and directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again) featuring the ultimate soundtrack of the ’80s.” We’ve got a copy of the film on DVD and a pair of Shure Sound Isolating Earphones to award one winner to herald Sing Street’s arrival in stores on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand.

Known for his films featuring original compositions, John Carney is once again inspired by his love for music and and all things Ireland to whisk audiences back to 1980s Dublin. From a troubled home, teenager Connor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) is looking to fit in at his new high school. When he is taken by the charms of the cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), he attempts to win her affection by offering to put her in his band’s music video. Without actually being a in a band, he has to scramble to make good on his offer. Connor quickly assembles a group and educates himself on all things rock and roll—and romance.

The film’s soundtrack features The Cure, Duran Duran, and The Clash, as well as new, original songs courtesy of Gary Clark from Danny Wilson who gave us the ’80s gem, “Mary’s Prayer.” Care to take this soundtrack on the road? The Shure Sound Isolating Earphones are ideal.

“The SE112 delivers great sound with deep bass and impressive sound isolation. The first step in an audio upgrade for portable digital devices, the SE112 features Sound Isolating sleeves in multiple sizes block outside noise up to 37 dB and provide a secure, comfortable fit. Evolved from personal monitor technology that’s been road-tested by pro musicians, the SE112 delivers detailed sound for personal listening or monitoring.

Comfortable sound isolating sleeves block up to 37 dB of ambient noise. Sound isolation technology prevents outside noise from interfering with your listening experience, whether onstage or on-the-go. Shure Sound Isolating Earphones require a proper fit to achieve the best sound.”

    Rush – Big Money. It’s so ridiculously bad and weird that I can’t stop watching it.

    I always liked the music video for Micheal Jacksons Bad. I remember all the hype of that movie being released.

  • jules mcnubbin

    my favorite video of the 80’s was Hungry Like the Wolf, because it seemed more like a movie than a music video. It was very creative at the time! 🙂

    Hands down – Peter Gabriel “Sledgehammer”. I remember the first time I saw this video, I thought there was something wrong with my television. When I realized the television was ok, I just sat there and stared into the screen and watched the images while my brain slid into a gigantic blob and I began twitching to the music. I can’t imagine how many seizures this video caused. A milestone music video for sure and my favorite from the 80’s.

    The Cure. Let’s Go To Bed. The Cure are hands down my favorite band of all times. This was the very first video I saw when MTV first came on the air and is seminal as it marked the beginning of video as an important art form in an artist’s expression of their music in a wholly different way and in part to a completely new audience and potentially new fans who prior to television access to the artist may not have had the means or maybe not the interest in becoming familiar with an artist’s body of work possibly based upon some preconceived notion.

    Billy Joel – Uptown Girl, them working & strutting around the shop while singing, then “walking” up to the car… always makes me smile 🙂 But I mostly think its the black driver, when he looks over, you know he’s thinking “these white people be crazy” lol

  • Christiane Henshaw

    a-Ha’s Take on Me, because it represented everything I love about the 80s — and there was nothing like it when it came out. Even all of these years later, no one can deny it’s one damn good music video!

  • Andy_Dunn

    Talking Heads “Once in a LIfetime”

  • Mr. Mac

    Van Halen’s Jump. It looks like they’re having so much fun and not taking anything seriously. Just goofing around making a video.

  • Cristopher S.

    “Run Runaway” by Slade. 1) It’s a hugely under-rated fun rock anthem from that decade. 2) The video is hilarious and random, which kind of screams 80s music video.

  • Mr. Mac

    Jump by Van Halen. It’s a fun video and proves that a big budget isn’t necessary to make a good music video.
