Movie Magic - 5 On Friday
This great new meme was invented by Travis of Trav's Thoughts. It gives you a chance to pick a theme or just favorite songs and then design a juke box around it to share with others. Check his site for instructions and join in the fun.
Linda over at "Are We There Yet" has introduced me to some wonderful new creators of motion picture scores such as Danny Elfman which made me think of the many movie themes that have become hit songs.
The juke box couldn't capture the intensity of the remarkable scene from Picnic when Kim Novak crossed the dance floor to the arms of William Holden and the old song Moonglow gave way to the Picnic Theme. Enjoy.
Now enjoy the old pros Chet Atkins and Les Paul remembering both pieces, chatting about keys and finally putting it all together in a fusion of two perfect guitars: Moonglow/Theme From Picnic
