But what better way to kick off the week than to listen to some music - this weeks theme was top songs from movie soundtracks. Normally I would have prepared this post earlier - but better late than never. I love a good movie - especially when it is paired with awesome music. This is probably why I am drawn to musical-esque type movies; dirty dancing, footloose, grease, labyrinth, etc.
I decided to go with a variety of movies - because I couldn't stick to just one. If I had it would have hands down been Dirty Dancing. I love everything about that movie. Anyways - here are a few of my favourites.
1. Dirty Dancing - She's like the wind
This is not my favourite song nor my favourite scene - however it is my second. This is the moment when Johnny Castle comes to Baby's cottage to say goodbye - they have a moment at his car and then he skids out of there. Seriously every girl was pinning for a bad-boy boyfriend like Johnny. I know I was. If you can't remember this scene - watch the YouTube clip.
2. Almost Famous - Tiny Dancer
This is probably one of my favourite moments in any movie. I can watch it over and over. Don't you wish you were on that bus? Preferably sitting next to Jason Lee. I suggest you watch the YouTube clip at least five times.
3. Labyrinth - Magic Dance
I've talked before about the big fat crush I had on David Bowie circa 1986. But truth is I also love the entire Labyrinth soundtrack - but this song was always my favourite. I mean look a David move!!
4. Grease - Summer Nights
Am I the only one that also had a big fat crush on John Travolta? Do you remember him in look who's talking - when he is dancing to walking on sunshine? Ummm...marry me?! Well I feel the same way when I watch Grease. And what's better than Greasers dancing on bleachers?
5. Footloose - Holding out for a Hero
I haven't seen the remake of Footloose - but I love the original movie. And the scene where Kevin Bacon is so mad that he needs to dance out all his frustration? Amazing right? I need to do this when I am mad. You need to watch this now.
But the second best scene and the best song is when they are playing chicken with the tractors to this Bonnie Tyler song.
