This Page is dedicated to songs from Movies that stuck with me. I think the two really go hand in hand. I discovered a lot about music through film.
The Wizard of Oz- Follow the Yellow Brick Road
Footloose - Footloose: Kenny Loggins Holy Moly, I totally love to dance to this song. The first time I saw this movie my legs twitched through the whole thing. I pretty much know the whole soundtrack.
Dirty Dancing- Time of My Life I love this part of the dance. Such a pinnecle part of the movie. Such an epic stand.
Empire Records- Wow did I want to work there! So here are a few of the songs that I love.
Free- The Martinis
Bright as Yellow- The Innocence Mission
Till I Hear it From You- Gin Blossom
Money(That’s What I Want)- Flying Lizards
Romeo and Juliet- Again there are a few songs here that really got me.
Pretty Piece of Flesh- One Inch Punch
Talk Show Host- Radiohead
I can pretty much sing the movie.
10 Things I Hate About You- This movie introduced me to Letters To Cleo who I immediatly fell in love with.
I want you to want me- Letters To Cleo
I Know- Save Ferris
and this is one of the best
Atomic Dog- George S. Clinton
Bad Reputation- Jone Jett
Mad Love- Drew Barrymores spastic dancing to 7 Year Bitch was pretty phenomenal.
Scratch- 7 Year Bitch
Thank you Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin in the fabulous movie Bio-Dome for this treat.
You Can Dance if You want To- Men Without Hats
Benny and Joon
I would walk 500 Miles - The Proclaimers
Now I would say Garden State rocked many a world in the music community. It opened my eyes to The Shins, Frou Frou (Imogen Heap), Remy Zero and Iron and Wine. So Here are but a few that really stuck.
In The Waiting Line- Zero 7
New Slang- The Shins
Such Great Heights - Iron and Wine (Such amazing Lyrics)
Let Go- Frou Frou
Classical Music is something that I have just started to appreciate. The move Pride and Prejudice helped with that.
Dawn a somber piece but when I hear it it I think of a solitary walk.
This piece is hot because it is when Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have their first dance together. A Postcard to Henry Purcell. You can feel the tension between them.
and for the oober nerd …..
in my 80’s movie Genre we have classics that I hven’t covered already like
Don’t You- Simple Minds _ The Breakfast Club
Weird Science- Oingo Boingo_ Weird Science
Nothings Going to Stop Us- Starship_ Mannaquin
Glory of Love- Peter Cetera_ Karate Kid
Good Enough- Cyndi Lauper_ Goonies
Movies and Music are an interlocking force.
If I can think of any more crazy songs to add I will.
