Music for Friday

I've been rocking out to the Sixteen Candles soundtrack, but because it bugged me that so many of the songs that were in the movie weren't on the soundtrack (Young Guns by Wham! for example) I've found most of them and have them here to share. I've got a request list at the bottom, if anyone could help out with a few rare tracks...

For the songs not on the official soundtrack, I've added helpful "here's where that was" notes. :)

1. Farmer John by The Premiers When the geeks stand outside Jake's house rocking out (Cliff rolling his hands, Jon playing a bass) this is the song. I love "Close your barn door, Cliff" and "Be nice to his parents." Ahahaha.)
2. hang up the phone - Annie Golden When Long Duk Dong opens the door and Ted tells the geeks "He's from out of town." :)
3. Love of the Common People - Paul Young (oh, how I loved him back in the day.) While Sam is getting dressed while talking to Randy on the phone, does the lip pout with wet hair?
4. Young Guns - Wham! this isn't on the TV version, which bugs me. Ted rolling large in the Rolls Royce. "Ho ho, don't hit anybody." FIVE GRAND! Do you have five grand? I don't have five grand!
5. When it Started to Begin - Nick Heyward/Haircut 100 "Geek? Can I be honest with you?" Only if you don't hurt me! "haha. GET OUT OF HERE."
6. True - Spandau Ballet Jake and Caroline are dancing, and Randy gives that small "bye bye" wave to Sam
7. Little Bitch - The Specials Put your fists to your armpits, rock your shoulders back and forth, move down, then back. :D
God I love this movie, wrong as it is in places.

8. Wild Sex in the working class - Oingo Boingo VERY HOT! VERY HOT! This night is happening. Am I blowing your mind? *blows in your ear*
9. Lenny - Stevie Ray Vaughn I've never bagged a babe. Fresh breath is a high priority in my life! (The auto shop scene) Side note, these two hated each other before filming, John Hughes took them music shopping, they realized how much they had in common, and they dated IN REAL LIFE during this and Breakfast Club. Srsly.
10. Young Americans - David Bowie "Dong?" *clap clap* "DONG?!" *clap clap* "Dong, Grandpa's talking to you!" "Hell, he ain't dead, he's three sheets to the wind!" "Oh, shut up, Fred. DONG! Where is my au-to-mo-bile?" "Automobile? HAHAHAHA Errrrrrr! CRSH! Wreck. Big wreck." Hahaha - I've seen this once or twice...
11. Rev-Up! The Revillos When Bandy BoLegs in the black mini with white buttons on her butt walks into the party. Not the best recording, but I can't find a better one.
12. Love Theme from The Godfather I know. We're all upset that Jenny's marrying a bohunk. "And this one bettah remembah he's not in the girl of the month club! *snort*" "Wolf it!" [mom takes shot] "Whoo!"
13. Wagner's Wedding March I like your hat... *slaps at cheries on a lady's hat* WE DON'T WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT SHE GOT HER PERIOD! *Grandpa Fred chuckles*
14. Today I Met The Boy I'm Gonna Marry - Darlene Love "Sam, I really don't have time for this." *lemons her elbows* Well, I always listen to you talk about boys! "Sam, is something bothering you?"
15. Snowballed - AC/DC only briefly, I'm pretty sure this is when Jake shakes his head after Sam leaves the coat check, and you see a jock with a girl over his shoulder as everyone heads off to the Ryan house to destroy it

The rest are on the official soundtrack, but I'd be happy to talk about those, too. *G*

Things I'm looking for: Not anymore! Check out the awesome undersea's comment below, as she lovingly uploaded them. \o/
  • "Growing Pains" by Tim Finn (of Split Enz and Crowded House - let's hear it for the Kiwis!) When Sam's in the hallway at the dance, crying (and she looks so pretty - watch how graceful she is when she stands up in her pretty white pumps and iconic peach dress....) and Caroline walks by and asks her how it's going. "Fine!" *sneaky tear wipe*

  • "Ring Me Up" The Divinyls - When everyone's getting their coats, Sam walks up to Jake, he turns, she stares, and leaves.

  • "Rumors in the Air" by Night Ranger

  • the kazoo song from the bus!

Here they are on box plus a widget to listen now:

And here they are zipped up on sendspace, 84mb. :)

Why the hell don't I own this movie? I need to fix that today.

Have a great weekend!

THANK YOU!! *tackleglomps you* OMG, this is the best thing ever! I love that movie so freaking hard. Also? My mister is going to worship you from afar for this. I'll see if I can get him to pull the Hungarian rhapsody kazoo thing off the DVD and put it an MP3 file. Yes.

*sings* Happy Friday to youuuu. :D
Sep. 26th, 2008 04:59 pm (UTC)
YAYAYAY! Oooh, if he can rip that song, that would be SUPER!

I'm off to Frys to go buy this. I'm just amazed I don't have it on DVD (I no longer have a VHS...)

(edited as I used the wrong icon...)

Hubby may or may not have David Bowie at home. I'll have to check.

How awesome was Spandau Ballet back in the day?
Sep. 26th, 2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
They were SO awesome. And I love the PM Dawn song that rips that beat, too. PM Dawn is <3

"Rumors in the Air" by Night Ranger is available on itunes in the UK - I dont mind buying it but would have no idea of how to share it!
Sep. 26th, 2008 08:01 pm (UTC)
Oh, I would feel terrible making you buy it just so I can have a complete set!

But I don't mind explaining how to share tunes - that's just something you must know! You can use sites like yousendit.com, sendspace.com or megaupload.com. Navigate to one of those, locate the song or file you want to share, input either your own email address, or the recipient's address, hit "Upload" and Bob's your uncle! You get a download link, or the person you've sent it to gets a download link.

Easy peasy!

I think I watched this movie about one trillion times between the ages of 13 and 14 years old. I still watch it every once and a while. I can quote the whole thing and there's such awesome music!

I'm still looking for a Jake Ryan of my very own!
Sep. 26th, 2008 07:59 pm (UTC)
I just love quoting it. Incidentally, I can perfectly imitate Grandpa Fred's laugh. That'll take me places! Hahahahahaha.
Sep. 26th, 2008 06:13 pm (UTC)
I heart you.

I just added sixteen candles photos to my mood theme last week. It's like electrical impulses were shooting between us like a bukkake film! Or maybe it's just because we had a bunch of strangers shoot all over us.

Sep. 26th, 2008 07:58 pm (UTC)
I heart you, too. Y'all coming up tonight? Maybe tomorrow night? Just throwing that out there.

Like I threw all those babies I didn't want.

I love that movie so freaking much! So iconic and just plain cool.
Sep. 26th, 2008 07:58 pm (UTC)
We are likeminded, sistah! I just bought the latest DVD with interviews, etc. NERD ALERT! :D

Check the link for Sendspace... It looks wonky to me. :-)
Sep. 26th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
thanks for the head's up - that was weird!

You are so awesome.

This movie was like John Hughes saw my life and put it on screen, except I had no hot yet wooden guy falling for me as far as I know.
Sep. 26th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
No, you are! Hahahaha, I know right? On both accounts!

Funny, one of my favorite shots is in the opening credits when the two kids in the jeans have their hands in each others pockets and you can't tell which is the boy and which is the girl?

...that says a lot about me, huh? Heh.
Sep. 26th, 2008 10:00 pm (UTC)
Ooooh! That's so awesome! Now I'll have to see if I can find that at the library this weekend. *sighs* I always thought that the ending was just sooo romantic. lol *shrugs* I was young. :)
Sep. 26th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, I still get that way. Because I never evolved past a geeky, hormonal 15 year old. :D
Sep. 26th, 2008 10:35 pm (UTC)

You are so awesome, thank you thank you!!!!!

"I've never bagged a babe" has got to be one of the best movie lines EVER!
16 Candles will always and forever be in my top 10 movies of all time.

"Oh, look, Fred- Sam's getting her boobies!" I just love every single thing about that movie...and most especially Jake Ryan, who did indeed ruin a whole generation of girls who thought a guy like him actually existed.

I'm sorry I can't help you with the music. (I'm patial to the Some Kind of Wonderful soundtrack myself.) John Hughes had a deft ear for music and dialogue.

Now I want to go watch the movie- which YAY I own!
Sep. 26th, 2008 11:34 pm (UTC)
Either I will, or I'll get somebody bigger, to kick your ass.
you know that Jake Ryan's body/everything type is baby Boreanaz, yes? At least, that's how I see it. :D

I LOVE THIS MOVIE, CHRISLEE. LOVE IT. If you look down at undersea's comment, she linked to all four songs I'm missing, and I'm listening to the Kazoo song and laughing at how the movie is timed so the bus doors open up when they yell, "HEY!"

I'm opening a bottle of wine, got some nibblies and about to put the movie on. Come over and I'll save you a spot on the couch.

*big girly gasp of joy* Oh, you rock so hard! I ♥ this movie so much. "Knock knock" "Who's there?" "Who." "Who who." "Heleeeeen, we got an owl out in the hallll!"

And I totally didn't just listen to the Thompson Twins twice and imagine Jake Ryan was waiting outside a church for me with his bitchin' Camaro standing by to drive us back to his place for cake. Nope.
Sep. 27th, 2008 12:55 am (UTC)
I LOVE IT TOO! I'm waiting for the debates to be over so I can re-watch it. :D

Mmmm, Jake Ryan. He's NEVER not been hot am I right?
Sep. 27th, 2008 03:34 am (UTC)
My second most favorite '80s movie EVA! (first is The Lost Boys).

I think I've watched it 500 times. I mean, the grandmas! Who doesn't have one grandma that's all sheik and put together and another who's like baking cookies in the kitchen?

And the quiz Sam was supposed to take in Independent Study...with the song and the snoozing teacher and the totally cool way Sam looked over her shoulder at Jake, and then smoothly turned it into a chin scratch when he was looking back. lol

"Life is not whatnot and it's none of your business."

How cool is it that Samantha is the main girl in the story but NOT some nightmare who's sweet to everyone and everyone's best bud? She's mean to nerds. Hee!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
