I'm With the Band: Musician-Lovers on Film

Because "groupie" is kind of a negative term, is it not?

Alternative title: Oh, Rexy, You're So Sexy.

As I spent most of my teenage years obsessively fancying musicians, I've always secretly loved films about girls who went out to nab themselves a rocker.

Really just a list about films that feature relationships involving rockstars/people in the music industry. Guilty pleasure, okay?

From the weird to the wonderful, men and women, happy endings (hur hur) or no, all are welcome here. I'd prefer films told from the lesser-known-counterpart's perspective, but will include anything (also films about two musicians in a relationship).

Any film about someone who wants to get as physically close to their idol as possible, but please, no Mark David Chapman-types.

I'm thinking no biopics or documentaries for now.
