The Singing VCR
The last post sparked my curiosity of the films I treasured in 1986/1987. Then I thought about the music…
Here some of my favorite music scenes (in no specific order). All of them I watched as a kid during family movie night (Saturdays), at slumber parties or with my sister:
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1987). ’Nuff said:
Good Morning Vietnam (1987):
Maybe the first time I heard “It’s a Wonderful World”.
Adventures in Babysitting (1987). Knew this song by heart:
Pretty in Pink (1986):
La Bamba (1986). I still heart you, Lou:
Stand By Me (1986). I did a lip sync in 6th grade to this song:
Peggy Sue Got Married (1987). I think my dad might have said “They don’t make songs like that anymore.”…:
Had to throw this in. African Ant Eater! Can’t Buy Me Love (1987):
And…last but not least (I actually watched this with my parents?) Dirty Dancing (1986):
What were yours?
