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?

    The “loverboy” part of DD was great. I loved “Peggy Sue Got Married”, and it’s probably the only movie with Nicholas Cage that’s decent, lol. “Stand By Me” was great, still is. That’s one that I need to get to watch with my son, I think he’d like it.
