Having a Beatle cover the Beatles is sort of a cheat, don't you think?  I refuse to listen to any nonsense that claims that Billy Preston wasn't a Beatle.

Xanadu is... well its not good... AT ALL!

But damn if "Magic" ain't a fine piece of pop nonsense!

 

Then there is Donna Summer and Thank God It's Friday. Awful movie but its Donna freakin Summer man!

Sadly, this was the running joke when incorporated the last place prize in the Summer Blockbuster Pool last year.

Great soundtrack.  AWFUL MOVIE~!

It might be worse than The Apple

I mean at least The Apple is a movie you can laugh your ass off to and make fun of. Xanadu is more like you sit there watching and constantly ask yourself "What the fuck is this and why am I watching it?"

It saddens me that you forgot about the awesome ELO side of the Xanadu soundtrack, James.

The grand finale of Xanadu totally makes up for the rest of the movie.

All of the songs in The Apple are crap, though.

Albeit hilarious crap.

Since when is Love At First Bite a bad movie?

Oh another "guilty pleasure" movie that has a pretty great Irene Cara song is DC Cab!

movie with Mr. T, The Barbarian Brothers AND Gary Busey is worth something right?

My first thought was that the Donnas' "Take it Off" was used in a trailer for the movie Jawbreaker, which is a terrible, terrible movie. I'm wrong though, that song isn't used in the trailer.

So I'll just go with:

I fucking LOVED that track off of the Fragile. I always thought it would be excellent if used in a trailer.

And then it was. And then the movie turned out to be total and complete shit.

Speaking as a European, I can't think of anyone I know who's seen Flash Gordon and doesn't think it's brilliant.

This Rollins Band song is fucking metal.

Hard to believe it was on the soundtrack of a shit movie like Johnny Mnemonic.

Speaking of whole soundtracks...I've never actually seen The Crow: City Of Angels, but it's got a pretty bad rep as a movie, and an awesome soundtrack from top to bottom...

Hard to believe that you could make such a shit movie from such a great story. I know Bill Gibson (slightly) and he refuses to discuss the film.

So far JT has ended 2 friendships in this discussion. I'm almost afraid to post the video for "Dream Warriors" by Dokken foe the mere fact his retaliation for calling Nightmare on Elm Street 3 a bad movie. But then I remember the name of the thread and suddenly remember that Dokken sucks
