Take This Tune Again


We haven’t done a Take This Tune for a long time, so for the new folks, here are the very simple rules. I set a subject and put up a video. Your job is to contribute a story, comment, or a video of your own in response to the idea and seeded video.

Since This is Oscar Season, the subject is songs from films that reflect your life in some fashion. Mine is a doozy. The film: “Same Time Next Year” covers a one weekend a year love affair for 25 years from the 1950s on. In between the time shifts, the musical interludes show the passage of time with the beautiful: The Last Time I Felt Like This which was nominated but did not win the Oscar (another bad academy decision). The video below is a collection of those images that mark the passage of time with all the historical pictures of important events. To this day it remains one of my favorite films simply because the years covered are the story of my life from childhood to mid 30s.

Your job is to tell me a story, post a video, give me the film music of your life.

    “There’s A Light,” from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” I think I went to that midnight movie almost every weekend during my first year at college. A hopeful message wrapped in a hauntingly sad melody, which matched my mood with all of the life changes going on at that time.
