Happened to flop in front of the telly whilst i was away - and was watching Shrek. Dont know if it was One or another (1 judging from the music listed below). It and the series are good films - but it is amazing how much the production team have snuck in classic songs into the mix. I think i heard a bit of Queen, as well as the soundtrack featuring classics like Joan Jett, The Proclaimers, Neil Diamond as well as Rufus Wainwright covering Leonard Cohen. I see from the web that in fact the other films feature some greats as well! David Bowie, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Tom Waits, Counting Crows plus the eels, Ramones, Led Zep Wings and Harry Chapin. How good is that? Kids of all ages are getting a subliminal injection of classic music! Keep up the good work!
Def Leppard are one of only five rock bands with more than one
studio albums selling over 10 million copies each in the US. The others are The
Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen.Quite justifiably both
Pyromania and Hysteria feature in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest
Albums of All Time. And there I was walking around Sheffield taking a break from
the snooker at the Crucible – which was fantastic by the way – and I walked past
a few buildings with their shutters down. A sign of the times unfortunately. But
anyway – some bright spark had done this fantastic homage to Sheffield’s
greatest export – except perhaps cutlery and The Human League. Joe Elliot and
the boys are reviewed live in Dublin elsewhere on this website-
but just thought I would celebrate them again! Great rock act – or NWOBHM
if you will.
