The Chevy Chase classic Fletch has an incredible instrumental theme from the master of 80’s keyboard, Harold Faltermayer, but it also has a catchy theme song from Stephanie Mills as well. Mills is a Grammy winning R&B singer who played Dorothy in The Wiz on Broadway and had a string of number 1 hits in the 1980s. Bit by Bit was not quite as big a hit as some of her other songs but it did get onto the Billboard charts and was one of a few contributions to 80’s movie soundtracks that wasn’t The Wiz related. The music video is kind of unique in that, while it features clips from the movie like a lot of official music videos, the clips include their audio as well, so the song gets put on a hold for some classic Chevy Chase one-liners. The part featuring Mills is kind of insane as well, as she’s either shrunk down or being kept by giant children in a futuristic block house that has nothing to do with anything Fletch related. You can check it all out below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
