Song’s from the Movies

With MIB International come to Cinemas this week, I thought I’d post this from the third in the series and I have to say, by just a smidge, the best in the series.

Back In Time sung by American rapper Pitbull was released as the lead single for the soundtrack of Men in Black 3 but isn’t featured on the album. It was though released as the lead single from his seventh studio album, Global Warming.

Back in Time

MIB3Let’s excuse me babyBiT
Go, yeah you baby
Back, ooh you groovy baby
In, let’s make a movie baby
Time, excuse me baby
Let’s, yeah you baby
Go, ooh you groovy baby
Back in, let’s make a movie baby
Time

It’s Mr Worldwide, Agent A, Reporting live
From Cape Canaveral, MK, Big Syphe, let’s ride

Back, back, in, in, time

Baby, ohhh baby
Ohhh baby, my sweet baby
You’re the one

Miami equals black mask, black clothes
With a little bit of rope to tie, I flipped it
Black suits, white shirts, black glasses with a matching tie
Like Agent J or Agent K, and I wish the whole world would
Ok, I’m tryin’ make a billion out of 15 cents
Understand, understood
I’m a go-getter, mover, shaker, culture, bury a boarder, record-breaker won’t cha
Give credit where credit is due don’t cha
Know that I don’t give a number two
Y’all just halfway thoughts
Not worth the back of my mind
But to understand the future we have to go back in time

Baby, ohhh baby
Ohhh baby, my sweet baby
You’re the one

I got the globe, yeah, in the palm of my hand
Wherever I spin it, that’s where I land
Let’s save the world
Men In Black I know you understand
Stop the movement, they can try if they want to
Ignorar lo latino, si, they can try if they want to
What Pit solves is a bit raw
Took like jigsaw and built it all
Despite a big loss, I’d bet it all
And fought blind against the world, Ray Charles
Y’all just halfway thoughts
Not worth the back of my mind
But to understand the future, we have to go back in time

Baby, ohhh baby
Ohhh baby, my sweet baby
You’re the one

Let’s excuse me baby
Go, yeah you baby
Back, ooh you groovy baby
In, let’s make a movie baby
Time, excuse me baby
Let’s, yeah you baby
Go, ooh you groovy baby
Back in, let’s make a movie baby
Time

Baby, ohhh baby
Ohhh baby, my sweet baby
You’re the one

Song’s from the Movies

So you won’t be mistaken when you realise that this isn’t a song from the movies but this is a good movie and a great poem and both did come together.

Go with me on this one.

Dead Poets Society, as I understand it not everyone’s cup-o-tea and I confess when I saw this on the back of Good Morning Vietnam I wasn’t all that impressed myself. Over time though I have to say I grew to love it, great story, great soundtrack, great poetry.

I also heard though that there was some controversy over the way the poetry was used within the context of the movie. Like the poem below, love it and I thought fitted the mood and moment it was used in.

But No – someone had to come along and start suggesting some of the notable poems in the movie, which this is one of, were way out of context for the situation they were recited in. Described as, and I’m paraphrasing, words meant to inspire but actually about running out of time in life.

Pish Posh is what I say to that. Enjoy the movie and enjoy this poem.

To The Virgins, Make Much Of Time

By Robert Herrick

Gather ye rose-buds while ye may:
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles to-day,
To-morrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the Sun,
The higher he’s a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he’s to setting.

That age is best, which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times, still succeed the former.

– Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
You may for ever tarry.

Song’s from the Movies

Any body remember this one, Disney’s 2002 Treasure Planet. Based on Robert Louis Stevens, Treasure Island this song was written and performed by John T. Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls.

It is a beautiful song and a great film to boot. I hope you enjoy.

 

I’m Still Here (Jim’s Theme)

TreasureI am a question to the worldJohn R
not and answer to be Heard
or a moment that’s held in your arms
and what do you think you’d ever say
I won’t listen anyway
you don’t know me
and I’ll never be what you want me to be
and what do you think you’d understand
I’m a boy no, I’m a man
You can’t take me and throw me away
And how can you learn what’s never shown
Yeah you stand here on your own
They don’t know me
Cause I’m not here

And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don’t feel
We want to hold on and feel I belong
And how can the world want me to change
They’re the ones that stay the same
They don’t know me
Cause I’m not here

And you see the things they never see
All you wanted I could be
Now you know me and I’m not afraid
And I wanna tell you who I am
Can you help me be a man
They can’t break me
As long as I know who I am

They can’t see me
But I’m still here

They can’t tell me who to be
Cause I’m not what they see
Yeah, the world is still sleeping
While I keep on dreaming for me
And their words are just whispers and lies
That I’ll never believe

And I want a moment to be real
Wanna touch things I don’t feel
We want to hold on and feel I belong
And how can they say I’ll never change
They’re the ones that stay the same
I’m the one now
Cause I’m still here

I’m the one
Cause I’m still here
I’m still here
I’m still here
I’m still here

A Special Guest Movie Mash Up

Great poem and a similar song. You’ll see what I mean.

 

William Shakespeare and Song of the Witches

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the caldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,

Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

 

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon’s blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.

 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Double Trouble

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Something wicked this way comes!

 

Songwriters: Robin Crow & Linsey Williams

Who doesn’t like this? That’s a rhetorical question by the way!

Sweet Transvestite

TRHPS[DR. FRANK N. FURTER]HorrorST
How do you do, I
See you’ve met my
Faithful handyman
He’s just a little brought down because
When you knocked
He thought you were the candyman

Don’t get strung out by the way I look
Don’t judge a book by its cover
I’m not much of a man by the light of day
But by night I’m one hell of a lover

I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you’re both pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual, that’s not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie

[BRAD MAJORS, spoken]
I’m glad we caught you at home. Could we use your phone? We’re both in a bit of a hurry

[JANET WEISS, spoken]
Right

[BRAD MAJORS, spoken]
We’ll just say where we are, then go back to the car. We don’t want to be any worry

[DR. FRANK N. FURTER]
Well you got caught with a flat? Well, how ’bout that
Well babies, don’t you panic
By the light of the night, it’ll all seem alright
I’ll get you a Satanic mechanic

I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

Why don’t you stay for the night? (night) Or maybe a bite? (bite)
I could show you my favorite obsession
I’ve been making a man, with blond hair and a tan
And he’s good for relieving my tension

I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

Hit it, hey!
I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

So come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab
I see you shiver with antici…pation
But maybe the rain isn’t really to blame
So I’ll remove the cause, but not the symptom
