Musical Montage is all about the holidays this month and we’re kicking things off with a hip hop classic that was featured in Die Hard, specifically thanks to Argyle, everyone’s favorite limousine driver.
Although not officially associated with the the Oscar winning movie Amadeus, Falco’s “Rock Me Amadeus” was heavily inspired by that film, both lyrically and visually for the music video.
Pat Benatar delivers the anthem for 80’s teen outlaw Billie Jean’s crusade against injustice (and getting $608 for scooter repairs) with “Invincible” from The Legend of Billie Jean.
The only way to experience Tony Montana’s rise to power is with a montage set to the super up beat and synthy “Push it to the Limit” by Paul Engemann.
The end credits song to The Running Man, John Parr pulls out all the stops for the wonderfully insane music video for “Restless Heart”, with tons of unnecessary slow motion, clips from the movie that make no sense and getting incorporated into the movie footage himself.
Our month long horror themed Musical Montage gets closed out by the classic Warren Zevon song, “Werewolves of London” that may have some hidden meaning but seems like just a song about a werewolf running around London.
A solid follow up to Thriller on your Halloween party playlist, Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” features Michael Jackson on the chorus and a bunch of references to horror movies and TV.
Forget terrible Jimmy Page/P. Diddy team ups and Green Day remixes, the only true song about the King of the Monsters is Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla”
Lion’s “Love is a Lie” would be fine to feature for this month’s all horror/Halloween Musical Montage, as it was featured on the Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter soundtrack, but add in Crispin Glover and it becomes something truly special.
Originally the theme song for the 60’s spy show “Danger Man”, Johnny Rivers’ ode to spies “Secret Agent Man” has become synonymous with all things spy and has been covered by a wide spectrum of artists.
