Classic Rock Bottom

ROCKOLLECTIONS GOES TO THE MOVIES PT.7

Let's go back to the comfort of the Movies.
Without a computer during my maddening travails in getting it tuned up, I watched a good number of them.
Hey, That's Why God Made The Movies!
I like my attempt at humor to begin this episode...but then I would, lol!
I'll be entering the 70's this time around- the Movies and the Music of that decade.
And we'll be staying there for a while.
You'll know most of these, so enjoy!

WOW!

And a great song too!

Interesting group of 3 members, give a look about them-all different generations.

Glad I introduced you!

Okay, I can definitely say I've never heard the Thunderclap Newman song.  I've never seen the movies you mentioned that it was in.  However, it's very familiar, maybe because it sounds like an Allman Bros. song at the beginning, maybe Sweet Melissa.  Good song though.

I noticed my friend, and it wasn't an oversight.

Something In The Air...oh, it's a song,lol!

I can't say that I knew the Thunderclap Newman song.  Maybe I should go back and re-listen to it.  I think I will. 

 

And I forgot to say that I corrected the oversight, my comment is now posted over yonder.

Oh, did you know the Thunderclap Newman song?
You should...I'll be awfully disappointed, lol!

No problem and thanks for the post.

The title sounds familiar, but with a cast like that how could I forget if I saw it?

DiCaprio has steadily gone from pretty boy to good actor- impressed me when he played Howard Hughes.

Well, what’s his name, lol?

Gotta seek out The Departed!

Thanks for the tip.

It was an oversight not to post the comment at WLSO.FM on my part.  I forgot we were back to real time shows.

 

As for The Departed, it has Jack Nicholson, Martin Sheen, Leonardo DiCaprio (not usually a fan of his, but this movie changed my mind) and several others.  Make sure if you watch it, you watch the whole movie.  The ending is unbelievable.  There's also a nice cover of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb by what's his name from Pink Floyd.

RJ,

I HOPE the old computer is fixed bro, lol!

We’ll be staying in the 70’s for a while.

But not for a few weeks-I have something else planned for the next two.

Paul Simon does indeed have a soothing voice, but I must tell you, there are parts of that song I am not sure I understand!

But I thought it was a good fit along with the Frankenstein beginning.

Woodstock by CSN (WITH the S, lol!) is a classic.

And so is Gimme Shelter- and that was my favorite of the chapter too, I hadn’t played it in such a long time it sounded so good to hear it.

Funny, at the concert and in the movie, Sympathy For The Devil is the song they are doing when things are breaking completely down and that guy gets killed.

Because of that madness, they stopped doing that song in concert after that- I don’t know if they even do it to this day!

I’ll have to check to see if I have seen The Departed, if I haven’t I will try to.

And you should see Gimme Shelter.

I don’t know why they used the Hell’s Angels for security but it was a dumb move they should have anticipated.

You got it, it was Rock Of All Ages by Badfinger- glad you liked it.

But how about Something In The Air by Thunderclap Newman?
That too is Classic, you musthave heard it, right?

The theme from Godfather makes me think of all the killings while the Baptism is going on…or Italian food, lol!

You usually put your comments at WLSO.FM too.

I like that because you are bright, they are good, and both tohether might make someone curious enough to listen.

Thanks for the listen and the writing,

Mike

Ah, it's movie time!  Glad the old computer is fixed bro.  I'm also glad we made it to the 70's.

 

Paul Simon has one of the most soothing voices I've ever heard.  This song is new to me, but I like it and it's a perfect fit for this series.

 

Woodstock by CSN is a terrific song. 

 

My favorite of the show was Gimme Shelter.  It oscillates with Sympathy For The Devil as my favorite Stones song.  I just can't ever make up my mind.  The guitar work on that song is mesmerizing.  And guess what, it also makes an appearance in a great movie from a couple of years ago, The Departed.  If you haven't seen that movie, you should.  And the commentary on Altamont was very interesting.  I've never seen that video, and I'm not really sure I want to.  I'm not that morbid.  But why hire the Hell's Angels? 

 

I missed one song title that I really liked, but I think it was Rock Of All Ages by Badfinger.  Terrific song that I'd never heard.

 

Love the theme from Godfather.  That's a beautiful piece of music.
