GMS presents: movie madness

i love a good tune. i also love a good movie. put the two together, and you get glitter starring bubbly american songbird mariah carey.

i asked mariah about doing a week-long GMS series on glitter, maybe a 33 1/3 series book too, but she yelled at me and hung up, so you'll have to make do with the following top tunes from top films instead.

'l'amitie' is by francoise hardy and crops up at the end of the barbarian invasions, so you'll have to watch the whole thing to hear it, which is a rewarding experience in itself. or you can hear it here:

'farmland tour' is by angelo badalamenti, who would win in a fight with ennio morricone. it's from david lynch's straight story, which is great. i'm surprised more people don't make this kind of music - like an americana godspeed offshoot.

I own Glitter on VHS. True story. It is arguably the most unintentionally funny movie ever made.
