Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosi’s Dead serves as an incredible opening to Tony Scott’s The Hunger.  Everyone is at the top of their game in this one.  Just awesome….

This clip is for Justine Delaney and Bree Long and its NSFW.

I wasn’t there but here is a iphone recording of Clint Mansell performing the Requiem for a Dream theme from Darren Aronofsky’s film live at the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle in NYC this week.

LA folks, he is performing there tomorrow night at the Orpheum!

A great short on the history of opening title sequences…and the music that accompanies them.

The Band’s The Weight as Billy and Captain America ride to Mardi Gras in Dennis Hopper’s iconic EASY RIDER.

Thanks Tom Folsom.

The mall chase scene from Matthew Robbins’ The Legend of Billie Jean set to Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell.  This movie is probably one of the best teen movies ever made (and now one of my all time favorites) and the soundtrack is amazing.

"Where is she???"…."Everywhere!"

This is a Jordan Bree Long special of the highest level.

The title song of Pedro Almodovar’s Volver.  Penelope Cruz lip-synchs beautifully to Estrella Morente’s voice in the best scene of the film. So good….

Thanks again to Stef Azpiazu for this one.

Catching up on long overdue submissions (Stef Azpiazu)… A Man and A Woman by Claude Lelouch, music by Francis Lai.  Damn…I need to see this movie again.

Claire Trevor performing her unrehearsed, Oscar worthy rendition of Moanin’ Low in John Huston’s Key Largo.  Lyrics by Howard Dietz.

As our submitter, Paul Silk, puts it: “One song sharply defines two characters; the petty cruelty of Johnny Rocco and the fragile dependence of Gaye Dawn. Director John Huston tricked Claire Trevor into an unrehearsed performance of the song and likely got her the Oscar for her trouble.”

Here is the accordion scene from Leos Carax’s Holy Motors - my favorite film of the year.  A cover of Let My Baby Ride by RL Burnside and Tom Rothrock featuring Denis Lavant

RIP Harris Savides.

The opening sequence of Jonathan Glazer’s Birth.  Music by Alexandre Desplat.

Marilyn Monroe as Sugar Kane Kowalczyk performing the infamous I Wanna Be Loved My You scene in Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot. 

Music by Herbert Stothart and Harry Ruby…comedy by Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis.

The opening credit sequence to the Coen Bros Hudsucker Proxy - music is, as usual, by Carter Burwell.

Narration by Bill Cobbs, dialogue by Sirs Coen.  Love this opening…

Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra perform Well, Did You Evah? in Charles Walters’ High Society.

Lyrics by Cole Porter

Happy Friday.

The Day-O (Banana Boat Song) dance sequence in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice.  Song by Harry Belafonte.  Man, I miss Tim Burton in his prime.

Roy Orbison’s In Dreams in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet.  Lip synching by Dean Stockwell.

I have posted this before and I will keep posting it, because its so damn good.  Enjoy.

As Chris Kaye says “the movie’s named after another song, but it’s really about this song.”
