I don’t know why I leave these things to the last minute these days but here we are – the band! Or more precisely the bands! I initially had a hard time coming up with a theme to stick into the theme but again, still gave it ago. Then I realised it was literally 10PM on a Thursday and I was running out of time. But I think my best ideas always come to me in the last minute. So this one is again a bit outside the box. Here’s hoping it works out.
3. YESTERDAY (2019) featuring THE BEATLES
Instead of picking movies featuring a band I’m going for the songs of the band in movies. Complicated way of explaining but you get it. Yesterday is a movie that features songs by The Beatles. Regarded as one of the greatest bands ever. Twist of the movie is, only the lead singer can remember the infamous British band and their songs. So he kind of steals them and becomes a famous musician. It’s a strange homage but I thought Yesterday to be a sweet movie. Nothing too bad. Charming, you could say.
2. MAMMA MIA (2008) featuring ABBA
Another movie that uses only songs by a certain band is Mamma Mia. And as the name suggest, it’s all about ABBA. The Swedish band that swept the world with their catchy disco-pop vibes. Not sure when I heard about ABBA the first time but I’m sure it was pretty early. It’s no secret I always smile when I hear an ABBA tune and it’s a fun way to revisit their songs in a movie such as Mamma Mia. Granted, I think the movie is not necessarily my favourite but I’m generally not a huge fan of musicals either. It’s the dancing that makes it strange for me. Again the cast sings the songs themselves.
1. IRON MAN 2 (2010) featuring AC/DC
Had to improvise a bit BUT did you guys know the entire Iron Man 2 soundtrack is by one of the biggest rock and roll bands in the world? Well, for some reason, I did not. Anyway, the Iron Man 2 soundtrack of course is compiled of only AC/DC songs, the Australian rock band that every one knows. And even though nobody actually sings anything in Iron Man 2 (not that I remember), one of the biggest bands in the world is always there – supporting the superhero. And there you have it, my three recommendations based on THE band theme with three THE bands of all time.
