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.

Songs on Sunday ~ The Windmills of your Mind

‘What a funny, dirty little mind!’

I have a friend who says that she has never seen the movie The Thomas Crown Affair.  The 1968 film with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway was so incredibly cool and laden with style that everyone who wants to be voguish should see it.  It has one of the strangest theme songs of all time; The Windmills of Your Mind ~ sort of sung by Noel Harrison.

There was a 1999 remake starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.

This song has to be in my top 100, if I ever get around to having a top 100.

Please listen without wanting to become a glider pilot, or drive a beach buggy on a beach.  Watch the movie without wanting to become a thief.

a bit like the movie

So, who do you want to be tomorrow?

Movie Night

it was Beauty killed the Beast

As it’s Valentine’s weekend, these are the movies I would have lined-up for my best girl to chose from for a feel-good movie night in.  Wine, appetisers, a log fire, and perhaps playing on the big-screen TV:

  1. When Harry Met Sally.
  2. Sleepless in Seattle.
  3. Groundhog Day.
  4. Ghostbusters..
  5. Casablanca.
  6. Beakfast At Tiffanys.
  7. Doctor Zhivago.
  8. Gone With The Wind.
  9. Grease.
  10. Die Hard, (just for Yippee Ki Yay, Mother Fucker).

Missing from my list are; Alien, As Good As It Gets, Beauty And The Beast, Blade Runner, The Blues Brothers, The Devil Wears Prada, Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Gladiator, The Great Escape, King Kong, Lady And The Tramp, The Magnificent Seven, The Maltese Falcon, Pretty Woman, The Princess Bride, Pulp Fiction, Singin’ In The Rain, Sparticus, Star Wars, The Thomas Crown Affair, Titanic, Wall-E and Zulu.

Perhaps not everyone’s glass of Cabernet, but I am open to suggestions.

Some say that you can tell a lot about a guy from his choice of movies.  And that if he really loves her he will order take-out.  All I know is that for every couple there exists their favourite movie, they just have to find it together.

that scene has got to make every man ponder

Songs on Saturday ~ Billy Ocean

I get knocked down, but I get up again
you are never gonna keep me down

Some say that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.  And, it’s not how many times you get knocked down that matters, but how many times you get up again.  All I know is that when you’re walking through Hell, you’d better keep going.

From the movie The Jewel of the Nile.

Please listen responsibly.

Real Men Don’t Dig Chick-Flicks

A female friend of mine had a hunch that I would not like a movie she had recently enjoyed.  So, just to prove a point to herself, she spent 40 minutes telling me every damn detail of the film’s scenario, characters, and plot.  There’s 40 minutes out of my life I can never get back.  Judging by what she told me in that long, long, 40 minutes, the only reason any man would sit through that movie, (or anything like it), is in the hope he would deserve sympathy sex afterwards.

In case my friend is in any doubt that I really, really, don’t want to watch a movie like the one she just described to me in such excruciating detail, here are some of the movies I like best.

Come to think of it, my friend did once make me sit all the way through an even worse film, (including the out~takes), than the distressingly stultifying chick flick she’s recently told me all about, (and I mean all about).

Some of my favourite movies that didn’t make the cut; Bambi, Bullit, A Bridge Too Far, Casablanca, The Cruel Sea, Die Hard, Ben Hur, Groundhog Day, High Society, North by Northwest, The Searchers, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty, Vanishing Point, Young Frankenstein, and many, many more.  Some of which are rom-com, but none is a damn annoying depressing chick-flick…
