Q is for...

…Quick Picks*

Soundtracks That Mattered (to me) is my theme for the A-Z Challenge this April.


*I could have fudged this one with Quicksilver (Kevin Bacon? Yes, but did I see it? No.) Instead, I quick picked the first five movie scenes with a strong song connection that came to mind in roughly two minutes (before I had time to think too much).

Breakfast Club - When that fist goes in the air, after the build up from the good-byes and the letter being read? YES!

Saturday Night Fever - He totally used that walk.

Muppet Movie - Perfectly natural for a frog made of fabric to be playing his banjo in a swamp, singing about his dreams.

Say Anything - Boom! There it is. No explanation needed.

Top Gun - Oh how I loved this scene for both the song itself, as well as the impromptu serenade.

  1. People always scoff at or tease me when I say that Saturday Night Fever was a good movie. Say what you want about it but that took unbelievable stamina, training and athletic prowess on John Travolta's part for the 'You Should Be Dancin" scene. I read that the producers were going to cut that scene out and Travolta threatened to walk off the movie. I don't blame him. I thought it had a great story too.

  5. you nailed the quick picks. Probably one I'd add to the list is an oldie oldie - Sound of Music - when she's swirling at the top of the mountain with "The Hills are Alive". Then again this was Broadway first....
    My fave on your list is Saturday Night Fever. I might have to listen to that one later

  8. Love, love, love your selections! The only scene I haven't seen is Saturday Night Fever which, I know, I need to watch. This post kind of makes me want to go back and watch these movies again. Especially Breakfast Club! Favorite 80s movie ever! :)
