Rupert Pupkin's Juke Box Vol.2-Summer Music!

I've taken to putting together little mixes of mostly cheesy music from films I have affection for. I did my first mix earlier this year and if you're curious about the track listing feel free to contact me. You may take one look at this track list and want to go nowhere near my musical wheelhouse. For this particular mix my attempt was to include as much fun summer-y movie type music as possible. A lot of it is that. There's just random tracks that I like from this odd film here or that odd film there. Many of the tracks had to be ripped from the movies themselves as the soundtracks were sadly not available. Lots of fun tracks for me on here. My favorite probably has to be "Friends" by the inimitable Dragon Sound as featured in the movie MIAMI CONNECTION(which, if you've not seen you really should).

Track Listing:
1. Van Halen "Intro music" from THE WILD LIFE

Love Big Trouble in Little China, interesting post.

Oh wow, I totally dig "Beat City" by The Flowerpot Men ever since I first heard it in the film. Such a cool song and it always evokes memories of the scene it plays over. Nice pick!

Aaron said...

Cool post, Rupe! You should go the extra step and put together a comp album of these songs and upload it to rapidshare (whatever that is) for your readers to acquire.

Ned Merrill said...

Some real choice selections here, Rupe. Eddie Van Halen's music for THE WILD LIFE is one of the more unsung scores of the era. You can hear the beginning of "Right Now" in at least one of the tracks.

Thanks Chris!

JD-yeah, even though I know the song well from FERRIS, I always love jammin out to it in the car!

Aaron- good idea!

Ned-I wish that Eddie Van Halen stuff from THE WILD LIFE was more available! Nice work on your mix too btw!
