View Full Version : Movie associated with a song game #2
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 3:18am
Continuing the tradition of actors singing the song in the movie...
Johnny B. Goode (Chuck Berry)
In this movie, the singing actor first wowed the crowd with the song but later on stunned them with his guitar playing.
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 5:43am
Back To The Future?
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 6:04am
Indeed. Your turn A.
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 6:09am
And another along the actor-singing-the-song line:
"I Say A Little Prayer" as performed by one actor with everyone else at the table joining in by the end
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 9:50am
My best friend's wedding.
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 2:18pm
Yup, knew it would be easy
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 3:00pm
okey doke. Might be tricky this one, but might not. We'll see. Guantanamera by Pete Seeger
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 3:27pm
That song always reminds me of a Holden Rodeo advert that used to be on TV here "One Tonne Rodeo... I got a One Tonne Rodeo...One Tonee Rodeeeo"
I vaguely remember that from one of those kids movies, Bug's Life or Antz - my son used to watch both so much that I still get them mixed up
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 3:36pm
It's been in many movies, could you be more specific?
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 4:45pm
It gets referred to a lot during this movie, and gets played on the stereo towards the end of the movie. I didn't know it was in several movies. The main chrs mother bought it for him for christmas when he was a kid.
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 5:10pm
So not one of the ones I thought?
This definitely sounds familiar though, or maybe I'm just confusing it with Besame Mucho as used in the Ethan Hawke/Gwyneth Paltrow version of Great Expectations :hmm:
Thu, 10th Jan '08, 5:26pm
Fri, 11th Jan '08, 7:03pm
This film isn't directed by David Cronenberg, he actually stars in this, and not briefly. He's in this a fair bit.
Tue, 15th Jan '08, 10:55am
I posted a quote from this film 3 years ago. After several hints, Splunge had heard of the film, but never saw it or knew it's name. It saddens me that still nobody knows this. It's in my top 20 films of all time, First time I watched it I was fine until the credits rolled, then I just cried. It's an amazing, touching, film. But if you want a film with action, car chases, etc, you will find this boring. It's about emotions and behaviour of people in the final hours before the world ends. "Last Night".
Wed, 16th Jan '08, 4:05am
That is sad... now can we have a new entry. :lol:
Wed, 16th Jan '08, 10:12am
Heh, ok. Afro Celt Sound System - Dark Moon, High Tide. Might be tricky as the band might not be well known, but I love 'em. this movie, whilst not great, is well known.
Wed, 16th Jan '08, 5:02pm
Gangs of New York
Wed, 16th Jan '08, 5:11pm
You got it. Obviously not tricky at all for you, T2.
Wed, 16th Jan '08, 7:29pm
Actually, that was a guess. Gangs of New York was the last movie I saw with "Celtic" music in it. Serendipity is a good thing.
Cotton's Dream -- Instrumental piece.
Hint: It is also called "Nadia's Theme" and was used in the 1976 Olympics by Nadia Comaneci (the first perfect 10). A slightly altered version is the theme to The Young and the Restless.
Hint 2: The theme song to the movie is performed by The Carpenters and was nominated for an Oscar.
Fri, 18th Jan '08, 11:10am
Fri, 18th Jan '08, 4:42pm
No. Not the Godfather (got a chuckle on that one ... The Carpenters singing on the Godfather).
Fri, 18th Jan '08, 4:55pm
I'm thinking nobody will get this.
Fri, 18th Jan '08, 8:43pm
New song, new movie...
Promise Me You'll Remember by Harry Connick Jr.
Sun, 20th Jan '08, 2:23am
The music was written by Carmine Coppola -- a man who wrote a lot of music for his son's movies....
Tue, 22nd Jan '08, 4:22pm
Alright, how about....
Fame -- Irene Cara (hint: it's really not a trick question).
[The first song I posted was from Bless the Beast and the Children, the second was the love song in Godfather, Part III]
Tue, 22nd Jan '08, 4:45pm
Fame? T2, nw.
Tue, 22nd Jan '08, 8:26pm
Told you is wasn't a trick question...
Your turn Takara. (nw?)
Tue, 22nd Jan '08, 8:35pm
nw: No worries. Ok, Lou Gramm - lost in the shadows
Thu, 24th Jan '08, 10:27am
Ok, hint, first will be basic. This song was made for this movie. In the title it has the movie name in brackets, which I left off.
Fri, 25th Jan '08, 11:07am
This song plays wilst the main chrs are riding motorbikes on the beach, at night.
Sat, 26th Jan '08, 11:14am
This movie is about vampires.
Sat, 26th Jan '08, 1:20pm
Not The Lost Boys is it?
Sat, 26th Jan '08, 1:22pm
It surely is. :D
Sat, 26th Jan '08, 1:24pm
Well, since I've had a brain freeze at the moment, here's one that should be so easy it's shameful
"She Caught The Katy"
the performer may not be necessary but if it is, I can post his name shortly
Sat, 26th Jan '08, 2:22pm
The title didn't ring a bell, so went on to iTunes to hear a clip. Unfortunately I saw the film name, and yes. Shameful. :lol:
Sun, 27th Jan '08, 11:40am
Indeed...one of those ones that you KNOW you know but can sometimes just get lost somewhere :bang:
But once you realise... :doh:
Fri, 1st Feb '08, 4:01pm
Come on people, it's been almost a week and no-one has this yet? For shame!
Fri, 1st Feb '08, 5:18pm
When I saw the film name, I was like :doh: but when I heard it, it meant little. Maybe others are having that prob. Post another, more well known, song from same movie?
Sat, 2nd Feb '08, 6:43am
Well, I'll post the name of the performer and if that doesn't tip anyone off, I'll post a more well-known song...
The song once more is "She Caught The Katy" and it's performed by John Belushi
Mon, 4th Feb '08, 3:44am
Mon, 4th Feb '08, 7:35am
Yup...take it nior

Wed, 6th Feb '08, 10:14am
Nope, this was sang by him in this movie
Wed, 6th Feb '08, 3:37pm
Wed, 6th Feb '08, 3:53pm
Wed, 6th Feb '08, 4:44pm
I Will Go Sailing No More -- Randy Newman
The song is about shattered dreams and sung as one of the lead characters realizes his life is a sham.
Fri, 8th Feb '08, 7:31pm
Same movie, same artist -- You've Got a Friend In Me.
Fri, 8th Feb '08, 9:03pm
That would be Toy Story. The last, I didn't know.
Fri, 8th Feb '08, 9:29pm
Your turn Takara.
Fri, 8th Feb '08, 10:04pm
Blaze of Glory by Bon Jovi
Sat, 9th Feb '08, 3:39am

Sat, 9th Feb '08, 10:14am
Did they? interesting. You're up.
Mon, 11th Feb '08, 2:37pm
Makin' Whoopee -- Susie Diamond
Mon, 11th Feb '08, 3:49pm
Mon, 11th Feb '08, 7:05pm
No, more recent.
Hint: Susie Diamond is the character's name in the movie, not the actress playing her.
Mon, 11th Feb '08, 9:22pm
The Fabulous Baker Boys
Mon, 11th Feb '08, 10:39pm

"Feed My Frankenstein" by Alice Cooper :cool:
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 6:58pm
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 7:34pm
Natch...just had a thought too...has this been used relatively recently? Or is it just my sleep-deprived mind screwing with me?
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 7:51pm
Hehe, nope, it was. :p ok... Call me by Blondie
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 8:26pm
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 9:18pm
Yup. Heh, temping to do it from Deuce Bigalow.
Wed, 13th Feb '08, 9:34pm

No, not rat race.
Hint: It's at the end of the movie. All the characters are singing and dancing and having a party....
Fri, 15th Feb '08, 5:46pm
Fri, 15th Feb '08, 8:29pm
Your turn Takara.
Fri, 15th Feb '08, 8:34pm

Sat, 16th Feb '08, 5:43am
Rocky Horror Picture Show!
Sat, 16th Feb '08, 10:42am
Yup, and i've also seen it in the theatre! :grin:
Sat, 16th Feb '08, 8:20pm
I would just about kill to see it at the cinema...we don't have classy cinemas here though...just a big-chain one...anyway:
This may be in a few films but in the one I'm thinking of it's played over the closing credits...
Goodnight Moon by Shivaree
Thu, 21st Feb '08, 7:49am
There are so many songs in bollywood which associates the movie name.For example kuch kuch hota hai, kabhi alvidha na kahana.
Thu, 21st Feb '08, 9:24am
But I think that one is a song and we're suppose to guess the movie. No idea what movie though, so wild guess would be The Guru? Although I've never seen it.
Fri, 22nd Feb '08, 8:24pm
Not The Guru...if that is indeed a guess at the song I posted...:confused:
Sun, 2nd Mar '08, 4:54pm
Apologies for my tardiness...been having major computer troubles lately...most likely a virus...so I may be out of action for a few days...hence I'm throwing this open to everyone and their dog...
Dog optional of course...
Btw, the movie was Kill Bill (or was it #2? I can't be sure anymore)
Sun, 2nd Mar '08, 6:49pm
Yap yap. Smash Mouth - all star
And not Shrek as this was performed by the band in this movie.
Mon, 3rd Mar '08, 3:00am

Mon, 3rd Mar '08, 10:08am
You got it CJ. :)
Mon, 3rd Mar '08, 10:11am
Anyway, as I can't think of one right now, i'm gonna leave the floor open. First person who has one that wants to post, it's all yours :)
Mon, 3rd Mar '08, 4:40pm
Nobou Uematsu- Kata Tsubasa no Tenshi
Wed, 5th Mar '08, 5:15pm
I guess this wasn't as much of a softball as you thought....
Thu, 6th Mar '08, 12:37pm
Thu, 6th Mar '08, 4:26pm
/me hands Masamune over to CJ
Fri, 7th Mar '08, 11:13am
And I still can't think of one! The floor is open once again.
Edit: Changed my mind! A softball for you guys...
Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Relax
Fri, 7th Mar '08, 1:14pm
The Wedding Singer?
Fri, 7th Mar '08, 2:14pm
Good guess, but not the right answer. Keep at it!
Fri, 7th Mar '08, 7:28pm
Sat, 8th Mar '08, 11:31am
It's as easy as that, folks. Your turn, Daie.
Sat, 8th Mar '08, 8:29pm
Nine Inch Nails- Closer
Sun, 9th Mar '08, 11:53pm
I get the feeling i've watched a movie with that in it fairly recently, but I can't remember what it was.
Wed, 19th Mar '08, 12:52pm
Hint. Stars a rather Sharpe actor
Wed, 19th Mar '08, 1:15pm
Thu, 20th Mar '08, 12:00pm
Tue, 25th Mar '08, 8:17pm
A hint perhaps? Or someone to take over?
Fri, 28th Mar '08, 10:18am
Enough time has passed from when you asked for a hint, so you can IJ. If you haven't by tomorrow, I will. Or anyone else can.
Sat, 29th Mar '08, 1:09am
Ok, I'll take the IJ....
Possbily a little difficult but have a shot at this one:
"Now You're A Man" by DVDA
Tue, 1st Apr '08, 6:47am
Okay, the only hint I can think of for this one right now is that they also had a song in the South Park movie - "What Would Brian Boitano Do"
Wed, 2nd Apr '08, 6:00pm
The movie was The Hitcher. Sorry, I've been away/dealing with personal problems
Oh, and I know what the movie is, but only because I wanted to listen to the song so I youtubed it
Wed, 2nd Apr '08, 9:56pm
Sat, 5th Apr '08, 8:31am
Orgazmo it is....
Mon, 7th Apr '08, 12:41am
"Meet Me Half Way" by Kenny Loggins
Tue, 8th Apr '08, 10:32pm
Didn't think this would be a stumper. Here's a hint: It's the kind of movie that makes you cry big, manly man-tears. Stallone is starring.
Tue, 8th Apr '08, 10:44pm
Men are only allowed to cry during Brian's Song and when beer is spilt.
Never for a Stallone movie. Unless you paid full price.
Tue, 8th Apr '08, 10:59pm
Ugh. I vaguely remember hearing Kenny Loggins from Over the Top, which I found myself watching on TBS or TNT or some other similar station. Is that right?
The only reason I'm doubting is because, even in my most charitable frame of mind, I wasn't close to the vicinity of the neighborhood of the remotest possibility of shedding a tear (except, perhaps, from the perspective that this was the same guy that wrote and starred in Rocky -- how far can he fall?)
Tue, 8th Apr '08, 11:38pm
Over the Top is correct! :banana:
There was a fantastic article on it on I-Mockery. (Hence the man-tears part.)
Tue, 8th Apr '08, 11:50pm
OK - T2Bruno got this song in the Song Quote Game, let's see if he can get the movie:
38 Special -- Caught Up in You.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 2:51pm
Time for a new song, methinks.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 4:46pm
You're probably right, as I completely forgot about this. I'll throw it open, as I cannot think of one right now.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 6:22pm
To keep it simple. Bryan Adams - (Everything I do) I do it for you
Should be simple, after all, how many weeks at no.1 did this stay????
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 7:05pm
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner as the linguistically anachronistic Robin Hood, Morgan Freeman as the Token Black Character Introduced to Give the Story a New Twist, Christian Slater as a foul mouthed Will Scarlett, and Alan Rickman in his best role ever as the Sheriff of Nottingham!
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 7:23pm
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 7:35pm
OK, this one is inspired by the last song. Please remember I'm new, so if this film has been done before please accept my apologies:
"Everybody Knows" as sung by Concrete Blonde on the soundtrack but in the movie itself it was sung by Leonard Cohen.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 7:49pm
Pump up the volume?
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 8:30pm
You've got it -- I'm impressed. Go ahead!
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 8:59pm
When Chriistian Slater would "masturbate" on air... lol. Such a good song!
From one Leonard Cohen song to another "Waiting for the Miracle"
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 9:18pm
Natural born killers! Yuck. Hated it.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 9:22pm
Really? I quite enjoyed it.
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 10:09pm
When even I find a movie disturbing, that's saying something. Anyhow, Now I've gotta think of another movie song. Again, if it's been done before, my apologies.
"Storybook Love" Mark Knoppfler
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 10:27pm
The Princess Bride?
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 10:30pm
Yeah, I knew that one was too fricking easy! Go for it, Takara!
Wed, 23rd Apr '08, 10:38pm
Not been used before, either of them. When I heard the last on iTunes, immediately I thought of Buttercup on her horse. Was such a romantic movie!
Okey doke. You could be mine by Guns n Roses

The Specials - Ghost Town
Mon, 28th Apr '08, 11:42am
Madonna - Lucky Star also plays briefly in a violent flashback.
Wed, 30th Apr '08, 2:08pm
I'll leave this one more day, then i'll post something else.
A quick clue for you guys: This is a british movie.
Wed, 30th Apr '08, 2:44pm
Shaun of the dead?
Fri, 2nd May '08, 12:25am
Bah, the movie was Snatch.
Alright, here's a real softball for you.
Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit
Fri, 2nd May '08, 1:29am
Fear and Loathing?
Fri, 2nd May '08, 1:43am
Yeah, told you it was a softball :p
Fri, 2nd May '08, 10:09am
Could also have had The Game, Platoon........ :p
Sun, 4th May '08, 12:11pm
Hmm... Okay, guys.
Hundred Mile High City - Ocean Colour Scene
Sun, 4th May '08, 12:48pm
Austin Powers: the spy who shagged me?
Sun, 4th May '08, 2:06pm
Nope. Did you know there's gonna be a 4th Austin Powers movie?
Sun, 4th May '08, 4:59pm
Heh, never thought that.
Tue, 6th May '08, 10:11pm
Ok, have another clue.
The movie is British.
Tue, 6th May '08, 11:08pm
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels?
Tue, 6th May '08, 11:15pm
Haha. Well done, Takara.

Wed, 7th May '08, 3:22am
Rock Around the Clock -- Bill Haley
The first movie it was in, please.
Edit: In retrospect, I'll open it up to any of the three movies this song was in. All three were Oscar nominated movies, two were about teenagers, and the third was just super.
Wed, 7th May '08, 7:42pm
Back to the future?
Wed, 7th May '08, 8:07pm
American Graffiti (not sure if it was the first one, though).
Wed, 7th May '08, 8:11pm
Splunge has it.
The other movies were: Blackboard Jungle (1955), and Superman (1978) -- both with Glenn Ford (the song was chosen to be played on the car radio in Superman because of the Glenn Ford tie). It was also used in "Rock Around the Clock" a B-movie from 1956 (I didn't know about that one until a few minutes ago).
"Rock Around the Clock" is considered by many to be the most influential rock song in history. It basically started the rock movement among white performers.
Wed, 7th May '08, 8:15pm
Well, I just heard this song the other day (sorry if it's been used here before):
Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me
Wed, 7th May '08, 8:18pm
Wed, 7th May '08, 8:20pm
Yep. I have to admit - I like both the movie and the song.
You're up, T2.
Wed, 7th May '08, 9:39pm
On the Good Ship Lollypop -- Shirley Temple.
Wed, 7th May '08, 11:17pm
Who framed Roger Rabbit?
Wed, 7th May '08, 11:33pm
You been dipping into the turnip beer again, Tak?
I should know this one since I used it as a lark in the Song Quote Game, but I'm drawing a blank on the movie.
Wed, 7th May '08, 11:40pm
No, not Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Where do you think I got the idea Splunge?
Thu, 8th May '08, 3:50am
Well, the egotistical ‘me’ wants to say you got it from, well, me (from the afore-mentioned Song Quote Game), but the “me who knows better” suspects otherwise.
In any event, I still have no idea.
Thu, 8th May '08, 6:33pm
Alright, fine... new movie, new song:
This one has been in a boatload of movies (including an instrumental version in 'Strangers on a Train' and in another movie by Ol' Blue Eyes), but not with these specific artists -- they are unique to one movie:
The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down -- performed by Charles Fleischer and later in the movie by Bob Hoskins
... Fleischer did the voice of a character in the movie (Takara... now you say the name of the movie... hint, hint).
Sat, 10th May '08, 6:32pm
I'm tempted to take this freebie and then throw it open to anyone who wants it cos I'm gonna be too busy with work and finding a new home and besides, that'd just be meeeaaan :p
Sat, 10th May '08, 6:56pm
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I just put the name of the song in iTunes to hear a clip as the name meant nothing. But when I heard a bit, Daffy Duck and the warner sign immediately sprung to mind.
From me... get ready for this by 2 Unlimited
Sat, 10th May '08, 7:25pm
Yes, it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Mon, 12th May '08, 4:18pm
My wife has this on her "sport's CD." I just noticed it and played it. I never would have known it from the title.
Mon, 12th May '08, 5:51pm
No. And to move to this song you need "spirit fingers". I just checked wikipedia and it was used in Space Jam, but clearly not the movie I posted this for.
Since you are right, in that this song is in Space Jam, you can go.
Mon, 12th May '08, 6:59pm
And to move to this song you need "spirit fingers" I just checked wikipedia and it was used in Space Jam, but clearly not the movie I posted this for.
What? I'm not following you.
Well, I'll go:
People -- Barbara Streisand
Mon, 12th May '08, 8:09pm
Mon, 12th May '08, 9:58pm
Your turn Splunge.
Mon, 12th May '08, 10:57pm
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers
Mon, 12th May '08, 11:08pm
Mon, 12th May '08, 11:33pm
No. (Or if it is, it's not the one I'm thinking of.)
Tue, 13th May '08, 9:44pm
Somehow, I was hoping my 4000th post would be a bit more significant than just giving a game hint (especially since it's coming before T2's), but here it goes.
The movie is a romantic comedy about two misfits falling in love. It's generally credited for popularizing the song in question in North America.
Thu, 15th May '08, 4:28am
I didn’t think this would be so hard. Last hint:
The movie’s title is based on a brother and a sister. The romance is between the sister and a cousin of one of her brother’s friends.
The cousin is played by a well-respected actor who, in other movie roles, has played (amongst others) a sailor, a director, a man with a very sweet tooth, and someone with unusual appendages.
Thu, 15th May '08, 3:47pm
Bennie and Joon? Depp is the common factor there, but still don't remember the song.
Thu, 15th May '08, 4:39pm
That's the one.
You're up, Tim, err, T2
Thu, 15th May '08, 4:44pm
We'll go with the Coran song...
Luck Be a Lady -- Marlon Brando
Granted his co-star in the movie, Frank Sinatra, had a more famous version.
Fri, 16th May '08, 5:48am
Edit I mean On the Waterfront
Fri, 16th May '08, 3:31pm
No, I don't believe On The Waterfront was a musical....
Sat, 17th May '08, 5:24am
I just had a hard time seeing it in A Street Car named Desire...
Sat, 17th May '08, 5:56pm
No, this also stars Ol' Blue Eyes.
Sun, 18th May '08, 5:01am
It wasn't the original Oceans's Eleven, was it?
Sun, 18th May '08, 6:17pm
No, Ocean's Eleven didn't have Brando and wasn't a musical.
Mon, 19th May '08, 6:53pm
If at first you don't succeed, it's time to stop making it so %$^#&! hard....
Do You Know Where You're Going To -- Diana Ross
The song is more commonly called Theme from ********.
Tue, 20th May '08, 4:51am
I could at least make some half assed guesses about the Brando song...
Tue, 20th May '08, 3:19pm
That you did, Gnarff ... reasonable guesses at that. Now on to Diana....
Wed, 21st May '08, 4:47pm
Okay, softball time...
Theme from New York, New York -- Liza Minnelli
Wed, 21st May '08, 6:02pm
New York, New York?
Wed, 21st May '08, 8:58pm
Your turn Takara.
Wed, 21st May '08, 10:01pm
Heh, was very tricky. ;)
Low rider by War I know this was used in Dazed and Confused, but in this movie it was played by the lead character on a stereo to "psyche" up him and his colleagues
Fri, 23rd May '08, 3:42pm
This is very surprising! It's a well known, and popular, movie. The lead had this song playing to get his crew ready to steal some cars.
Fri, 23rd May '08, 5:05pm
Gone in Sixty Seconds?
Fri, 23rd May '08, 5:35pm
yup. The song to "get them in the mood".
Fri, 23rd May '08, 6:41pm
Zip-a-Dee-Do-Dah -- it's been in two movies, sung by a main character in each. Either movie will do (dah).
Sat, 24th May '08, 6:15am
I think the movie was called Song of the South, and the Character was Uncle Remus...
Sun, 25th May '08, 2:21am
You have it Gnarf. It was also in Splash.
Sun, 25th May '08, 6:09pm
"Big Gun" AC/DC
Wed, 28th May '08, 5:35am
Hint: The movie was a bit of a bomb, but the soundtrack was very good. Arnold Schwartenegger got a few shots in at himself in that one...
Wed, 28th May '08, 10:11am
Thu, 29th May '08, 6:07am
No, this was a comedy from about 15 years ago. It wasn't a bad movie, but not a great one either...

Twins did well in the theater -- the only Arnie movie I can recall that really bombed was The Last Action Hero. Which was actually pretty funny.
Fri, 30th May '08, 5:49pm
Don't from which movie the song in question is from but I think Jingle All The Way is another bomb movie for Arnie.
Fri, 30th May '08, 7:52pm
That one did so bad I had completely forgotten about it.
Thu, 5th Jun '08, 3:40pm
Gnarf -- are you still there???
Fri, 6th Jun '08, 6:55am
Nobody has it yet.
The answer is "Last Action Hero"...
Someone else take this one...
Fri, 6th Jun '08, 3:00pm
Umm, Gnarf -- if you'll look at my post from May 30th you'll see my guess was The Last Action Hero.
Nobody Does it Better -- Carly Simon
Fri, 6th Jun '08, 5:50pm
The Spy Who Loved Me.
Aerosmith - I don't want to miss a thing.

Beatles - Nowhere Man
Sat, 7th Jun '08, 5:35am
Sorry T2. I can't wait for High speed when I can visit the boards during the day...
Sat, 7th Jun '08, 10:39am
Sat, 7th Jun '08, 5:52pm
What? No automatic song? How could there have been doubt?!?
Your turn Takara.
Gnarf: Should we type slower?
Sat, 7th Jun '08, 5:59pm
lol, I thought it might be since it's a movie with Beatles music, but I couldn't be sure. ;)
Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion. This song plays at the beginning of this movie.
Sun, 8th Jun '08, 4:59am
No, I just need to be more awake when I come to the boards...
Mon, 9th Jun '08, 11:31pm
It plays whilst kids are arriving at their high school, and the opening credits are playing.
Tue, 10th Jun '08, 11:39pm
This is surprising as this movie has been used in quote game, and movie scene game recently.
Thu, 12th Jun '08, 2:18pm
You should feel ashamed. *sigh* Alright, as soon as the freshman start their first year they get hazed by the seniors, in particular the boys get spanked with wood like cricket bats.
Edit: ok, it wasn't in movie scene game recently, was yet another quote.
Fri, 13th Jun '08, 2:53pm
This movie has Ben Affleck, and Matthew McConaughey in it.
The Kilted Crusader
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 12:51pm
Dazed and Confused?
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 12:57pm
You got it! :) This movie is sooo great.
The Kilted Crusader
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 11:07pm
Huey Lewis And The News - Power of Love
Not the most obvious one for this movie
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 11:14pm
I'm still gonna say it. Back to the Future.
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 11:18pm
Well, I can only think of Back to the Future.
The Kilted Crusader
Sat, 14th Jun '08, 11:19pm
that's it, too easy. On you go CJ. (Johnny B Goode was the obvious one for that movie, btw ;) )
Fri, 27th Jun '08, 1:21pm
Since CJ can't be arsed, i'll IJ. Love is all around you - wet wet wet
Sat, 28th Jun '08, 6:16am
If I remember correctly, Four Weddings and A Funeral with Hugh Grant
Sat, 28th Jun '08, 10:25am
You got it. :) You're up.
Sun, 29th Jun '08, 5:07pm
2 versions of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds , one by The Black Crowes and the other by Aimee Mann
Wed, 2nd Jul '08, 8:21pm
Hmmm, no takers? Hint... the movie is about a retard.
Wed, 2nd Jul '08, 9:39pm
Thu, 3rd Jul '08, 1:04pm
Nope, this retard got a daughter... and she's brilliant.
Thu, 3rd Jul '08, 6:29pm
Not a very gentle hint but....
I Am Sam
Thu, 3rd Jul '08, 8:03pm
Sorry if it is a bit harsh. But yup, it is I Am Sam with Sean Penn.
Tue, 8th Jul '08, 6:44pm
Gonna post, T2?
Tue, 8th Jul '08, 10:13pm
How about Hugh Hefner's theme song:
Thank Heaven for Little Girls -- performed by Maurice Chevalier (no, not that Chev).
Tue, 8th Jul '08, 11:12pm
Damn, talk about a hard post. :lol: I have no idea on that one.
Thu, 10th Jul '08, 6:42pm
Actually, I though this would be easy as it's from one of the top musicals of all time....
I go with something more contemporary....
All By Myself - Jamie O'Neal
Thu, 10th Jul '08, 6:58pm
Thu, 10th Jul '08, 9:05pm
No, not Ghost. Jamie O'Neal is a relatively new vocalist from Australia (hit the US country charts in 1999, IIRC). The movie is from 2001.
Thu, 10th Jul '08, 9:50pm
I listened to the song on iTunes, and sadly saw the movie name, so can't guess. I knew why the song sounded familiar. I really enjoyed that movie.
Fri, 11th Jul '08, 6:33am
Bridget Jones Diary?
Fri, 11th Jul '08, 3:16pm
Your turn nior.
Fri, 11th Jul '08, 7:49pm
The Story - Norah Jone
Fri, 11th Jul '08, 8:30pm
Thomas Crown Affair?
Tue, 15th Jul '08, 1:04pm
Sorry for the delay. Nope, not TTCA. This one's a fairly recent one. And Norah Jones gets to be in the lead actress.
