Lights, camera, action…cue the music!

The theme for this Friday’s Music thread is a return to a favorite, music from movies. Feel free to share music and scenes from movies with or without music that are memorable.

Since I’ve hit a lot of my favorites in previous editions, here are some less well known clips:

Lady Sings the Blues – Ain’t Nobody’s Business if I Do

Sweet and Lowdown – I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlKpXFnwOSA[/youtube]

Harold and Maude – Trouble
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEbSkybMuqs[/youtube]

Harold and Maude – If You Want To Sing Out
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if504e1EHJg[/youtube]

The Rutles – Cheese and Onions
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePaHG6g7uFw[/youtube]

Spinal Tap – Big Bottom

Your turn!

    Your Saturday morning cartoons. Perhaps Osarah bin Palin should watch these. She might learn some history instead of Histeria!. 😆

    Part 2


    Part 3

      Don’t know if it’s just me, b’ito, but I think Sarah’s attention might be held by the fact that she bears more than just a passing resemblance to Miss Information. And rightly so.

      Love the gnarly potential T-bagger in the last one, with his classic reaction to all of LBJ’s legislative accomplishments: “Ask me if I care.” Although, to be fair, T-baggers do care about LBJ’s programs — in a negative way. They just wanna reverse ’em all.

    In honor of the end of the combat mission in Iraq.

    Seriously, the melody is infectious.

    Dali


    But if there is an Iraqi megastar, it is Shatha Hassoun

    Sorry, this video is extremely long. It is a speech by Ms. Sarah Palin on foreign policy and the economy.

    Not bad eh? I think she gave that presentation at MIT.

    Please Newt, Please Osarah bin Palin, Please John Boehner. Get a hint. Get a clue.

    I’m your Uncle Barack. Welcome to the Whitehouse.

      Wake up Tea Partiers!

      “You
      were under the impression
      that when you were walking forwards
      that you’d end up further onwards
      but things ain’t quite that simple!”

      “You
      got altered information,
      you were told to not take chances,
      you missed out on new dances,
      now you’re losing all your dimples!”

      Quadrophenia -- I’ve Had Enough

    Little Shop of Horrors -- Be A Dentist


    Somewhere That’s Green


    and Mean Green Mother From Outer Space


    • bitohistory says:

      Shop of Horrors? Does that bring us to a “Time Warp Again”?
      From a film that played for a few days. “jump to your left…”


  7. bitohistory says:

    This should be shown on Saturday Cartoons, or T-Parties
    Teddy Roosevelt and “Trust Busters.” Every one sing along !


  8. bitohistory says:

    Have to interrupt the movies to say Happy Birthday Robert Plant!
    Anyone remember him?
    “Dazed and Confused” 1969


  9. bitohistory says:

    OK, it’s not a movie-they didn’t exist- first recording of a president?


  10. Khirad says:

    I watched a movie about the Sepoy Mutiny called Mangal Pandey. Funny thing about the colonial mindset is that in reality it was no mere mutiny, but was the First Indian War of Independence.

    Enough history though. Let’s get to the songs!

    Main Vari Vari (sorry, no subs, the subbed one had horrible quality -- I hate how that always is)


    Rasiya
