V is for...

…Vacation

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




Well, well, well! What do we have here? A continuation of Kari's John Hughes themed birthday celebration! 

I would be willing to bet some of you are surprised that this movie even has a soundtrack, right? 
A little Lindsey Buckingham can take you a long way...

  1. That was Lindsay Buckingham that sang that song? I had no idea. My hubby loves the Vacation movies. For me, I can't get past the continuity issues of the kids' ever changing ages. First they are tweens in the first movie, then they are mid to late teens in Europe, then they are little in Christmas.

  3. That Holiday Road song is the only one I remember from that movie. But the movie itself is very funny. :)

    1. My husband has some of his cd's. I was a big Fleetwood Mac fan, but didn't realize he'd gone solo as well.

  7. I've never really thought about National Lampoons movies in terms of their soundtracks before :) Thank you for the song rec - very bouncy.

    1. Aside from that song, the music really isn't the first thing to come to mind I admit!
