Scenes on Sunday ~ Dance

hand in hand, on the edge of the sand
they danced by the moon’s last light

Just to do something different, here’s a dance mashup with scenes from some great films. Most of which I’ve been lucky enough to catch, at one time or another.

I hope you enjoy.

Dance with me in Dreams

until the end of Love

Songs on Saturday ~ Don’t You Forget About Me

and don’t you throw, those spears, at me

If you have ambitions as a mimic then that’s one of the two Michael Caine lines you need to practice ~ which has nothing whatsoever to do with this cool song and great 80’s movie clips.  Zulu came out in 1964, and I bet that today’s woke film producers wouldn’t make that picture.

I must have gone to the cinema a lot in the 80’s because I can remember every single one of the clips in this mashup.

Of course you also have to learn to do an Aussi accent if you want to say; ‘that’s not a knife…. that’s a knife….’

You know what, people tend not to forget about me.

Zulus, thousands of ’em

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Rio Bravo

they invented ‘hey you in the jail….’

Following this morning’s musical post from Paint Your Wagon, here’s a slightly atmospheric song from Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson, from the John Wayne Movie Rio Bravo.  It has the not very catchy title of My Rifle, My Pony and Me.  Some dowgies and a campfire would be good.

Of course, Walter Brennan steals the scene as ‘Stumpy’.

‘Brokeback Mountain’

 

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Wand’rin Star

hitch your wagon to a star

Maybe the most unlikely singer ever to reach number one in the UK ‘hit parade’ ~ back in the days when we had such a thing.  Lee Marvin and a song from the movie musical ‘Paint your Wagon’.  But then who would ever have expected Dirty Harry to burst into song either?

And, then again, John Wayne started his film career as a singing cowboy.

here’s looking at you

Bond Themes

Bond.  James Bond.

The 25th Bond Film No Time To Die is out soon, with a theme song by Billie Eilish.  Nice song, great lyrics, cute singer, but Billie Eilish would never make the cut as a Bond Girl.  (Maybe that’s why there isn’t a great video to go with this theme.)

But there is only one true Bond theme.  This has been played sometime in every single Bond movie. (Don’t know why the Old Glory, there is nothing American about Bond films, Bond is a quintessential Englishman if ever there was one.)

Please listen without striking a pose.
