Saturday Set List: The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
Soundtrack of the week: The Crow
Still love this movie, still love this soundtrack, which I got an awful amount of mileage out of back in the day. I have to admit, though, that from what little I've seen of the comic, it never did much for me. It's quite strange sometimes how certain things get turned into movies.
The Cure, "Burn"
Song-about-movies of the week: "Act Naturally"
Here's a bit of a twist. This isn't about a specific movie or movie star, but it's definitely about movies. Ringo's non-Beatles movies include 200 Motels, Sextette, and Give My Regards to Broad Street.
Song-that-would-make-a-good-movie of the week: "Rocket Man"
Space exploration and colonization once used to be exciting and challenging for the title character, but now it's become mundane and routine, and he can't understand why, especially since his family and friends all think he's got the greatest job in the world. A movie with this premise should be evocative of 2001, only with more emotion. Duncan Jones' Moon was kind of along these lines, but this would be different.
NEW! Actor-singer of the week: Scarlett Johansson
This will mostly have to do with actors who sing, as opposed to singers who act, like Frank Sinatra or Kris Kristofferson (though there'll be some of those too). So the other day I heard this song on Pandora and I was pleasantly surprised to see who it was.
Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson, "Relator"
