Sky High and the World of Bad Music...

Saturday, July 30, 2005

So once again I am dragged to a movie that I may not have necessarily seen if I had not had a 5 year old but then again, there are many bad movies for kids out that I will refuse to go to. So I took my daughter to see the movie Sky High and it was quite predictable, but still entertaining. And Kelly Preston, what eye candy for a slightly older but hot mommy. I still can't get over the fact that Bruce Campbell played the part of the coach for the school. For some reason I just naturally picture him with one arm as a chainsaw and hordes of the undead. But getting to the point of the post, I was a little surprised to hear a lot of 80's cover songs. Here goes the tracklisting.

Sky High (the soundtrack)
1.Everybody Wants To Rule The World - Christian Burns
2. Save It For Later - Flashlight Brown
3. Can't Stop The World - Ginger Reyes
4. Melt With You - Bowling For Soup
5. Lies - The Click 5
6. Through Being Cool - They Might Be Giants
7. True - Cary Brothers
8. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want - Elefant
9. And She Was - Keaton Simons
10. Just What I Needed - Caleigh Peters
11. One Thing Leads To Another - Steven Straight

Now I love me some 80's songs as much as the next clubgoer, new wave fan or closet freak, but the covers were atrocious. I could do a better cover after downing a bottle of Jack, popping pain killers and then going to a karaoke bar where one of two speakers was blown and hissing static. However, I am glad that at least They Might be Giants was on the soundtrack. Also during the movie, I was able to see an Aquabats poster (old skool!). I can't vouch for the music on the soundtrack not played in the movie, but the ones featured were pretty awful. Sometimes imitation is NOT the sincerest form of flattery.

Excellent site, keep up the good work my colleagues would love this. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment  to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks.miami beach condos
