Classic Rock Bottom

After the Intermission, we continue with 1946's It's A Wonderful Life and the project of inserting an updated Rock & Roll soundtrack into it.
And it is true, I did have a box of tissues nearby.
After all these years, this Movie still gets to me!
I'll pick it up precisely where we left off, with the Wingless Angel Clarence learning about George Bailey, Bedford Falls, and more.
And I'll take it from there to the stirring, beautiful ending by Frank Capra, who was so good at writing and directing Movies he inspired a word, "Capra-esque".
By the way, what was Clarence's last name, and what did he write in the Tom Sawyer book he gave to George?
I can't believe I finally did it...what has just been an idea for so long.
And again, thanks for the help from others, particularly to Pete Fornatale of WFUV.
As always, I hope you enjoyed my effort to bring you something a bit different from regular Radio.
Merry Christmas To All, And To All A Good Night!
Here's the link to the conclusion of a Movie so terrific, so unique, so WONDERFUL, that despite all the remakes none has ever even come close, at WLSO.FM:

Hey Jon, I wrote a response to your last comment.

When I went to add it, that was the last thing my computer did, lol, it went crashing into hell!

Just a coincidence!
But I would do Winslet anytime, anyplace.

Keep Beckinsale...and Blancett too, lol!

No, that Kate does absolutely nothing for me.

However, if you're talking about Kate Beckinsale, that's a totally different story...

Hey guys, I'd watch Kate Winslet in ANY Dimension, lol!

And you would too Jon...admit it, lol!

If Titanic is on TV you are sunk, lol!
It didn't occur to me at the time, just one of those happy accidents, but  Help by the Beatles worked on two levels.
George goes to Potter for it, and after the song the first thing Clarence says after jumping in the water is "HELP"!
I got TWO Golden Pells for "Part Of The Plan" by Dan Fogleberg!
That's my favorite song by him.
Ok, suggestions for albums:
Dan Fogleberg- The Innocent Age
Bob Dylan- Blonde On Blonde
Gordon Lightfoot- Did She Mention My Name?
Stevie Wonder- Talking Book or Innervisions for middle period Stevie
Merry Christmas to you and the family R&R Brother,

I hope for all your sakes that it's when the boat is split in two. If it's anything else, I have completely lost my respect for you as people and as rockers.

I can think of one scene I wouldn't mind seeing in Real 3DD!!

Comment by Scott on December 24, 2011 at 2:41pm

RJ - Titanic is coming to the big screen again, this time in Real 3D))

Comment by RJhog (Admin) on December 24, 2011 at 12:20pm

You lucky dawgs, I had to watch Titanic in the theater, and now every dang time it's on TV my wife somehow finds it.


I thought the first song was okay, but I agree it fit perfectly.  Help by the Beatles fit very well also.


The following 3 songs, "Part Of The Plan", "Angel On My Shoulder" and "You Angel You" were all outstanding.  But I'll give the Golden Pell to only one of them.  My criteria for the award is different from time to time.  It may be a song's lyrics, or the melody or any number of factors.  The only thing for certain is that it will be one of the songs I've never heard.  This time I'm going with overall melody and straight up appeal to me.  The Golden Pell goes to........................



"Part Of The Plan" by Dan Fogleberg.  Mike, I've told you this before, but there are a handful of artists (think Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot) that you play on a fairly regular basis that always remind me that I need more of their catalog in my collection.  Dan Fogleberg is definitely one of them.  Maybe I should set myself a goal for 2012.  Pick up 2 albums by each of these folks.  You recommend 1 album that you think I'll like (studio album of course, not greatest hits), and I'll pick up another one on my own and see what you think of it.  How 'bout it?  Do you have suggestions for me?


Merry Christmas my rock and roll brother!

I tend to see most movies only once- only exceptional ones will I watch again, and years later.

That's why I don't see any reason to buy a DVD.

In the case of Titanic, once was a LOT, lol!

And I saw it  on HBO not in a theater- small multiplexes have lost their appeal for me.

Hope you keep hunkering my friend, lol!
