Friday Music Blog

It's quite obvious to me that this is a movie-loving crowd! Movie blogs will become a more regular feature here, but Fridays are Friday Music Blog days! Today's topic, appropriately enough, asks for your favorite movie songs. These can be theme songs, songs written exclusively for movies, or songs featured in movies. The only caveat is the song must have some connection to a movie.

I want to thank each and every reader for taking the time to log on to this site, read my blogs, current and older material, and joining me on my journey. It is a strong and persistent feeling of vulnerability to write something for public consumption and wonder if anyone will log on to read. You all have been a tremendous readership comprised of dear friends, old friends, new friends, and simply wonderful people who, for some reason, like what they saw and stuck around. I thank you all for honoring me by returning each day.

I ask you to return next Monday as I've already begun formulating new blog topics. This journey is still at its beginning stages and I am so glad to have you with me every step of the way!

  7. Your Rowdy Music Blog has filled my internal i pod up with Pink Fluid and deleted the rest this a cool film called Crystal Voyager made some time not long after the Echoes sound track I remember being totally transfixed when I saw it at a cinema in Oxford, England, if you can get it on DVD buy a stadium size screen and turn the volume up to off the scale for the full effect :-
