Sing Street (2016) Poster


Ferdia Walsh-Peelo: Conor



  • Conor : It's like, when you don't know someone, they're more interesting. They can be anything you want them to be.

    Eamon : Yeah?

    Conor : But when you know them, there's limits to them.

  • Conor : [to Barry]  Maybe you're living in my world. I'm not living in yours. You're just material for my songs.

  • Conor : [to Barry]  You only have the power to stop things, but not to create.

  • Darren : What does "happy-sad" even mean? How can we be both things? It makes no sense.

    Conor : It means that I'm stuck in this shithole full of morons and rapists and bullies, and I'm gonna deal with it, okay? It's just how life is. I'm gonna try and accept it and get on with it, and make some art.

    Eamon : So how does that affect our music?

    Conor : Positively.

  • Conor : What about "La Vie"?

    Darren : What's that mean?

    Conor : It's French for "The Life."

    Garry : What's French for, uh, "That's not gonna be the name of the band"?

    Conor : "Ce n'est pas le nom du groupe."

    Garry : There you go.

  • Brendan : How d'you know he's her boyfriend anyway?

    Conor : It seemed like it. Pulled off in his car, music blaring. He's pretty cool.

    Brendan : What was he listening to?

    Conor : Genesis.

    Brendan : He will not be a problem.

    Conor : Really?

    Brendan : Trust me. No woman can truly love a man who listens to Phil Collins.

  • [Conor and Eamon put on costumes for a music video] 

    Eamon : It's me da's show band outfit.

    Garry : So it's a gay band? Okay.

    Conor : Coming from the one who wants to look like the Village People.

    Garry : What's gay about the Village People?

  • Conor : I think she's this amazing human being. Never seen anyone like her. The way she talks and looks. She wears these sunglasses, and when she takes them off, her eyes... are like the clouds clearing to let pass the moon.

    Brendan : Ffuuh...

    Conor : Sometimes I just wanna cry lookin' at her.

  • Eamon : So how do you mean you're "happy-sad"?

    Darren : Yeah, how're we supposed to market that?

    Conor : It means we're not pop anymore.

    Eamon : We were pop? Listen, I'm happy being anything. I just want to play music.

    Conor : That's fine. Be who you are, Eamon.

    Eamon : Well, I don't know who I am. Maybe I'm happy-sad, too. I don't know.

  • Eamon : Or Duran Duran. What do you think of them?

    Conor : Jury is out on which way those guys'll go. They're a lot of fun, and James Taylor is one of the most proficient bass players in the UK at the moment, giving them a funky edge.

    Eamon : John Taylor.

    Conor : Yeah, John! Of course!

  • Conor : Will you help me write a song?

    Eamon : Always.

  • Brendan : You want to have actual sexual intercourse, right?

    Conor : Yeah. What, what?

    Brendan : The girl. It's all about the girl, isn't it?

    Conor : Yeah, the girl, yeah.

    Brendan : And you're gonna use somebody else's art to get her? Are you kidding?

  • Brendan : Think big, Conor. This is just a means to an end. And she looks amazing. She's got to be in all the videos.

    Conor : Yeah?

    Brendan : Oh, yeah. She's world class. Without her, you're just a bunch of gay-looking kids down an alleyway.

  • Brother Baxter : Head down to the toilet and remove the makeup right now.

    Conor : Why?

    Brother Baxter : Because I told you to.

    Conor : But I'm in a band. It's a school band, and I think it's important that we have a look.

    Brother Baxter : You're a man. Men don't wear makeup.

    Conor : But why not? People in the 18th century wore makeup. That means people like Mozart wore makeup, and he was a man.

  • Conor : Anyway, what about the band?

    Eamon : The band will be fine. Just go to London and get a record deal, come back and get us out of this shithole.

    Conor : That's not a bad idea, actually.

  • Conor : Ok, so this is our last song. It's called Brown Shoes. And it's for every Christian Brother and for every bully you ever knew.

  • Raphina : Jesus Christ, what are you all wearing?

    Conor : Yeah, we're just working that out, so... maybe you can help.

  • Conor : D'you wanna write a new song?

    Eamon : Yes, I do.
