Given the punk vibes of the late 80s/early 90s skateboarding scene, you would probably expect the main song from 1989’s Gleaming the Cube to be slightly harder edge than “Brother to Brother” by Billy Burnette but that’s what we got. Burnette was a solo artist and songwriter who worked with artists like Eddy Raven, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Everly Brothers, and more along with releasing his own albums. “Brother to Brother” appeared on his album of the same name along with appearing in Gleaming the Cube. Burnette himself appeared in several films including Carnosaur 3, Casper Meets Wendy and Addams Family Values. In 1987, he also joined Fleetwood Mac after the departure of Lindsay Buckingham and was with the group until 1995 when the band went on hiatus. There’s, unfortunately, no official music video for “Brother to Brother” but you can check out the song below.
The new full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is here and it extends off the Super Bowl spot, keeping it’s awesome use of one of the greatest songs of all time, Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”, and finally gives us our first look at Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet. The plot is coming together a little bit more as well as a group of perfect genetic celestial beings led by Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), who are looking to “cleanse” the universe of weaknesses like fear and jealousy and it’s up the Guardians, with new recruits Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Yondu (Michael Rooker) to stop them. Of course, Baby Groot is all over this trailer as well but he still seems adorable and hilarious, especially the quick bit where he’s just hanging out and waving to Gamora during the team’s battle with a giant alien squid monster. The movie is out on May 5 to kick off Summer 2017 and you can check out the new trailer below.
Summer is almost over but there are still a couple weeks to get in a good old fashioned road trip and “Holiday Road” by Lindsay Buckingham should be at the top of your road trip playlist. The theme song of the Vacation series, the Fleetwood Mac guitarist wrote and sang the song the for the first movie’s soundtrack and also had a music video for it as well. Now, you’re probably thinking the music video is Buckingham going on some sort of wacky 80’s road trip like the Griswolds in the movie but it’s actually set in some sort of dystopian future office where vacations are banned or something. It’s really weird, especially with how upbeat and catchy the song is, check it out below.
