With possibly his final appearance as Tony Stark this coming weekend in Avengers: Endgame, it seems like a perfect time to take a look at Robert Downey Jr’s musical side projects for this edition of Musical Montage.
Channeling The Nature Boy, Offset from Migos, 21 Savage and producer Metro Boomin teamed up for the album “Without Warning” and it’s lead single, “Ric Flair Drip” and Ric Flair himself shows up for the official music video.
Channeling comic books and parodying TV and pop culture, “Without Me” is one of the most memorable music videos by Eminem and arguably his biggest hit of all time.
Best known these days as probably the weirdest member of Dunder Mifflin, Creed Bratton had decades of musical experience before heading to Scranton, including being a member of the iconic 60’s rock group The Grass Roots, who had hits like “Midnight Confession” and “Let’s Live for Today”.
Most famous for its appearance in the classic Spongebob episode “Band Geeks”, David Glen Eisley’s “Sweet Victory” is arguably one of the greatest 80s power ballads of all time.
Best known for her song “Tell It to My Heart”, Taylor Dayne provided the bombastic and insanely rock operatic main theme for 1994’s The Shadow, “Original Sin”.
Considered by many the greatest musical of all time, it took a while for Singin’ in the Rain to gain it’s legendary status, as it was only a modest hit when it was first released back in 1952 and was barely recognized for awards, only winning one Oscar for co-star Jean Hagen.
The lead track on the album that produced their insanely popular single “Flagpole Sitta”, “Carlotta Valdez” was Harvey Danger’s homage to Vertigo, retelling the Hitchcock classic as Jimmy Stewart’s Scottie Ferguson.
Shocking no one, “Shallow” won the Best Original Song award at last night’s Oscars for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, following constant radio airplay since A Star is Born came out and wins at the Golden Globes and Grammy Awards.
Ray Charles helped kick off the iconic 1967 crime thriller In the Heat of the Night with the title song, “In the Heat of the Night”, that was composed by the legendary Quincy Jones.
