(BMI) How can one be down/Tell me where to start/'Cause every time you smile/I feel tremors in my heart/I have but one concern/How can I get with you/Till my day comes/Here's what I'm gonna do (REFRAIN) Be sittin' up in my room/Back here thinking about you/I must confess/I'm a mess for you/Be sittin' up in my room/Back here thinking about you/I must confess/I'm a mess for you Pray that you will invest/In my happiness/All it takes is/Just one simple call from you/Turn my heart around/If I'm making ground/Pretty baby please tell me/If I'm getting through Tell me what is up/You see I need to know/Tell me if I'm far/Or if I'm getting close/I have but one concern/And that one concern is you/Till I'm with you/Here's what I'm going to do The soundtrack to "Waiting to Exhale" gives Whitney Houston top billing. But there's also Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin, just to mention a few. Also on this disc is Brandy's current chart hit "Sittin' Up in My Room." Like much of the CD, the cassingle is written by Babyface, surely another sign that this is a collection of'90s style-pop, "can't miss" songs. The song describes how infatuation can take over your life if you let it. The woman in the song has "but one concern, and that one concern is you," her much longed-for boyfriend. She only wants to know: "How can I get with you? Till my day comes, here's what I'm gonna do. Be sittin' up in my room, back here thinking about you!" I suspect that if this guy continues to ignore her or only pays minimal attention she'll eventually change her mind. Yet, instead of just waiting and hoping, she ought to be doing something more valu- able and enjoyable with her time. For example, she feelings, but move beyond her could look around at her friends and see struggling with his or her own p offer to meet with them and listen to theirC ties, doubts and fears. She could also expand beyond tunnel vision and ask herself what she with the gift of her life. She might explore dreams and hopes, asking what she wants sides a relationship. She might determine what could more purpose and meaning. Then she outline specific steps that would help new goals. She might even try dating would allow her to discover that of someone who wants to be with her is fying than the current yearning of her This would help her attain clearly needs: real life experience that learn about relationships. :! " 'S Eeryone falls into infatuation It can be an emotional ride; make it (Your comments are always welcome dress: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 47635.) At the movies: Current capsule reviews NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broadcasting. "Happy Gilmore" (Univer- sal) Desperately unfunny comedy about an inept hockey player (Adam Sandier) who earns big bucks by turning his slap shot into power drives on the pro golf tour. Directed by Dennis Dugan, the feeble proceedings are as unamusing as the violent antics of the ill-tempered boor of the title. Slapstick violence, sexual innuendo and coarse language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 parents are strongly cautioned that some material may b6 in- appropriate for children under 13. 'Iate" (Gramercy) Shrill, documentary-like drama follows 24 hours in the lives of three unemployed young men from a suburban Parisian public housing project as they use drugs, argue and try to elude aggressive cops until in- evitably a violent confrontation occurs. Writer-director Mathieu Kassovitz' stark portrait of dead-end youth pitted against brutal police puts the ghetto en- vironment of hopelessness and violence into sharp relief. Subti- tles. Intermittent violence and drug abuse," crude sexual refer- ences and incessant rough lan- guage. The U.S. Catholic Con- ference classification is A-IV- adults, with reservations. Not rated by the Motion Picture As- sociation of America. "Mary Reilly" (TriStar) Dour treatment of the Jekyll- Hyde tale in which a timorous chambermaid (Julia Roberts) who was abused as a child finds safety working for kindly Dr. Jekyll (John Malkovich in the dual role) until his murderous assistant Hyd e turns up, pro- voking in her both dread and an unwanted physical attraction. Director Stephen Frears deliv- ers a drawn-out and relent- lessly gloomy look at the dual- ity of good and evil and Victorian sexual repression. Some gruesome violence and re- curring sexual innuendo. The U.s. Catholic Conference classi- fication is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- re- stricted. "The Young Poisoner's Handbook" (Cinepix) Fact-based tale of a chem- istry-obsessed London lad (Hugh O'Conor) who poisons his stepmother (Ruth Sheen) and serves eight years in a mental hospital before being released only to resume his experiments with lethal poisons on unsus- pecting co-workers. By using the poisoner's warped perspec- tive, director Benjamin Ross finds mostly mean-spirited SCHNEIDER HEATING & A/C. INC. 24 HR SERVICE 428-2665 118 W.
