Blog Music Party Week: Epic Movie Music

Because movies + music=a mighty good time. Here are my faves:

"Tiny Dancer" in Almost Famous



All time favorite, hands down. Such a powerful, moving scene from the movie. It gets me every time. *tear*

"All That Jazz" in Chicago



*Warning-video may not be appropriate for viewing at work!*

I first saw the off-broadway production of Chicago in Las Vegas on a trip with my parents about ten years ago. It was a. mazing. I couldn't wait to see the movie when it came out, and it did not disappoint. Recently, I saw the musical again when it came to my local performing arts center. I rarely watch repeats of anything (short attention span) so that proves how big of a fan I am! I changed my mind about a million times as to which song to choose because I love them all.


"Total Eclipse Of The Heart" in Old School

Old School: Total eclipse of the heart


This scene is priceless. I wish I had The Dan Band at my wedding.

"Twist It" in Blues Brothers



Most awesome choreography ever. Any time a seemingly random group of people converge in the streets and bust into synchronized dance gets an "A" in my book.

  3. I have to admit, I looked at a few fellow music week blogs before I posted mine in an effort to minimize repeats ... and Total Eclipse from Old School was the only one! I LOVE that movie, it's hilarious, and that scene in particular is awesome. Nice choices!

  5. Love "Tiny Dancer"... We actually used to call our dog that. (Who knows?)

    And the Old School one... We just rewatched. So funny!

    I overlapped yesterday with my Pretty In Pink tune, but I've got a doozy for tomorrow.

  9. Great list! I'm now flooded with the memories that each song/movie brings up for me! And I agree that any song involving spontaneous dance parties in the street gets an A+
