Classic Rock Bottom

ROCKOLLECTIONS GOES TO THE MOVIES PT.5

Continuing on with the Rockollections Goes To The Movies epic series, as I am inclined to do, I thought I would take a detour.
Movie Stars!
That's what I'll do- take a musical look at some iconic Movie Stars in this chapter.
With songs you'll know and songs you'll be introduced to, about them and by them.
Not much more I can say, other than that those two masks of Dionysus representing Comedy and Tragedy will symbolize what you will hear.
Sometimes the ideas just flow, and I had a lot of fun picking songs for this half hour.
I invite you to join me, and I hope you enjoy this one.
 
Here's the link to both Comedy and Tragedy, and music to go with it, at WLSO.FM:

I agree with everything Scott and Niels said, so that's all I have to say...just kidding (about the latter half of that sentence).

 

Dirty Harry is an awesome movie, and most of us dudes wish we had the stones to act like Dirty Harry did and say the things he said.  Clint Eastwood is an legend, plain and simple.  And at 150 years old or something like that, he's still making great movies from in front of and behind the camera.

 

I know nothing about The Marx Bros., but that little clip was very funny.  

 

Oh, I almost forgot, the song that preceeded it was kinda cool.  I thought all along that it was David Cassidy until you said it was Harpo.

 

Not a big June Carter Cash fan here, but that song wasn't bad.  She sounded kinda like a man to me.  

 

James Dean by The Eagles is an awesome song.  I love the guitar work on it, and everybody knows of the quality of the vocals by this band.  Scott's right about them not getting much attention around here.  Maybe somebody needs to work up an Eagles "BEST OF IMHO".  It would be very easy to work up a hits version and a hidden gems version.

 

Don McLean has a great voice, and again Scott's comment was right on about Somewhere Over The Rainbow being covered so much.  And like Niels, that witch scared me too.  And I remember trying to watch that movie with my son, who was about 7 or 8 at the time.  You should have seen the change come over his face the first time she made an appearance.  Needless to say, we didn't watch the whole movie at that time.

The transition from the Dirty Harry soundbyte to the bright and cheery music was great!

 

I Object!  No reason, just felt compelled to jump on the bandwagon...

 

I Love the Eagles, they dont get much love on this site, but they should.  Such pioneers, really!  Is it possible that Over The Rainbow is the most covered song ever? 

 

Like the movie theme, the soundbytes are fun, and the music is recalling memories and thats the fun of listening.

By the way: I'm one of counless of people, that was scared sh..less by the wicked witch of the west, when I was 5 or something, and later when I was about 14, by the exorcist.  Man, I could'nt sleep for MONTHS after that movie.  Are you going to play Tubular bells next time around?

Sorry, it's been a while, but here I am again!

Ah, great. Harpo is one of my fellow scandinaviens. I've allways loved that song.

And I LOVE the Marx-brothers!!!!
