Mountain listener George had an idea for songs from movies for "The List." So tonight I played 7 songs which you not only remember from a particular movie...but you get a visual of a specific moment in the film. George left it up to me to come up with the tunes so here is my list based on George's excellent suggestion.
Running on Empty-Forrest Gump (Forrest out running and running...)
Streets of Philadelphia-Philadelphia (Best movie song ever?)
You Can't Always Get What You Want-The Big Chill (Funeral scene in the movie)
In Your Eyes-Say Anything (John Cusack and the boombox)
Old Time Rock and Roll-Risky Business (Tom Cruise in his underwear)
Don't You Forget About Me-The Breakfast Club (Closing segment-Bender's raised fist)
Tiny Dancer-Almost Famous (Singing on the Bus)
That's it...that's "The List." Tomorrow night I have a make good list from this past weekend. Your suggestions for Rocks best bass player, Rocks greatest front man and a real sweet choice for Rocks greatest guitar licks...Think Robert Downey Jr.
