Song’s from the Movies

I love this film. Not only hilarious but it’s sinister twist is brilliant.

My favourite of what’s know as the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, Hot Fuzz is a 2007 comedy action film directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg, Nick Frost and in my eyes an all star cast.

The films crazy opening scenes are introduced by the great song that is Adam Ants ‘Goody Two Shoes’. An appropriate opener describing such a ‘by the book’ character that is Sergeant Nicolas Angle , sorry Angel. I love that bit.

Great song, great movie; enjoy.

Goody Two Shoes

HotFuzzWith the heartbreak openAnt
So much you can’t hide
Put on a little makeup, makeup
Make sure they get your good side, good side

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside

We don’t follow fashion
That would be a joke
You know we’re going to set them, set them
So everyone can take note, take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs, eyeballs
Pretending that you’re Al Green, Al Green

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

No one’s gonna tell me
What’s wrong and what’s right
Or tell me who to eat with, sleep with
Or that I’ve won the big fight, big fight

Look out or they’ll tell you
You’re a “Superstar”
Two weeks and you’re an all-time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

‘Cause I don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

(Repeat)

Song’s from the Movies

You’ve probably noticed that I have a bit of an affinity for vampires; no, well where the hell have you been all this time.

So I’ve been watching this great TV series based on the movie, which I’ve also seen, called ‘What We Do In The Shadows’. It’s one of those mockumentary horror comedies and very, very funny, if you like that kind of thing.

The theme tune to both the movie and series just happens to be brilliant also, so for you’re entertainment, I hope you enjoy…

You’re Dead

ShadowDon’t sing if you want to live longNorma
they have no use for your song
you’re dead, you’re dead, you’re dead
you’re dead and outta this world.

You’ll never get a second chance
plan all your moves in advance
stay dead, stay dead, stay dead
stay dead and outta this world.

Run fast don’t stand in the sun
there’s too much work to be done
you’re down, you’re down, you’re down
you’re down and outta this world.

Don’t ever talk with your eyes
be sure that you compromise
you’re dead, you’re dead, you’re dead
you’re dead and outta this world.

Hear the unloved weeping like rain

guard your sleep from the sound of their pain
long gone, long gone, long gone
long gone and outta this world.

When you smile and it tears your face
it’s time for the inhuman race
you’re down, you’re down, you’re down
you’re down and outta this world.

Now your hope and compassion is gone
you’ve sold out your dream to the world
stay dead, stay dead, stay dead
you’re dead and outta this world.

Written and performed by Norma Tanega

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

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!
