Music And Movies:
There are a lot of movies made about rock bands. What artist/band do you think should be immortalized on the big screen? (Feel free to cast the leading roles if you so choose) I don't know...there are already films made about most of the artists I am interested in learning more about. Maybe Dion DiMucci, as in Dion from Dion and the Belmonts. I have always been spellbound by his voice, since childhood. I had a few of his vinyls as a kid and would play them over and over again and he has always just stuck with me. I've read here and there he had a rough go of it so I would like to see a film about him.
In case you didn't know, he was incredibly darling as a young man and I'm thinking Zachy Efron could play him. *sigh*
Which do you like better, movies about music or movies that are musicals and why? This is like Sophie's choice for me. I love them both. Equally. I love, love, love musicals-Funny Girl, Cabaret, Sound of Music... My hubs HATES them. So I have to watch when he is busy or at some random sporting event.
Movies about music-I love them all-La Bamba and Dirty Dancing were a staple of my pre-teen years. I love Empire Records, Walk the Line, Ray, Cadillac Records, Sweet Dreams, anything musical...love it.
Tell us your favorite movie soundtrack and why: This would be Dirty Dancing part one and two. For those old skoolers online remember when they divided the vinyls in to two sections b/c on Dirty Dancing part one they left all of this great music out??!! Well I do. Great stuff.
I am also very into the music from Empire Records. They had about fifty songs in that film but the soundtrack only had 12 tracks. I got a complete track listing and just downloaded every song featured and made my own Empire Records soundtrack ♥
