Day 2 - 30 Day Movie Music Challenge

Day 02 - Music from a film scene that makes you happy.

Saw this movie on TV recently, so this scene came to mind immediately:

The Blues Brothers - a bit sweary and even blasphemous in places - but so many great musical moments. For example, just before this scene, the Blues Brothers are walking towards Aretha's cafe and pass John Lee Hooker, sitting in the street, playing and singing - it's almost thrown away but it's pure genius.

I love John Lee Hooker but the Think! sequence, more than any other musical number in the film, makes me happy. Aretha Franklin giving it laldy in her baffies. Outstanding!

{The audio is a bit out of sync with the video in the clip above... which is a shame. The only other clip I can find is this one, which seems to have been made by pointing a camera at the screen while watching the film on the telly. Odd, but it might actually be better quality than the one I've embedded above - and it includes the set up to the musical number too. What do you think? Which one should be embedded?}

Over to you then. Pick a scene with music that makes you happy.

Maybe "happy" isn't the right word, but the zombie massacre in the pub during Shaun Of The Dead is a giggle. Wonderfully choreographed to Queen's "Can't Stop Me Now".

If I hadn't gone for a Quuen track with Wayne's World yesterday, this scene would have been top of my list. :-)

When Queen do soundtracks they do good ones. How about "any moment with music in Flash Gordon"?
