Box Office Beats is going to be taking some time off and then going thru some changes.
First, let us say how much fun BOB has been over the last year. It was a show born from a mutual love of movies and music, and grew from that passion into it’s own beast. BOB took over. And working on anything BOB related was always a good time. Mandy always said working on BOB stuff made her heart happy. But things are constantly evolving. Life changes and people’s situations change. And sometimes there just isn’t room for a big green furry popcorn monster.
So the show will likely be closing it’s curtain. Between Fear being busy with his life, and Mandy being busy with hers, it’s just not something that will be able to be continued in the current form.
But BOB isn’t fully going away. There will be some restructuring behind the scenes, and BOB will reopen the curtain soon with a new path.
And all the episodes will remain up and available for anyone who still wants to listen. And we hope you all stick around to see what the future for BOB holds.
It’s back to school time! So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from school movies. Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife
Gangsta’s Paradise – Dangerous Minds
Oh Coolio. He made such a catchy song, that even if you haven’t seen the movie, you know the song. The movie was a gritty drama about teaching at risk youth, and it was really good.
Kiss Me – She’s All That
90s teen movies are so great. And She’s All That is full of teen romance drama cliches, but still a great movie.
Tainted Love – Not Another Teen Movie
I love cover songs. And parodies. And Not Another Teen Movie is a hilarious parody of teen movies, from the 80s to the 2000s. And the version of Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson in the movie is extra great.
Baba O’Riley – Slackers
Slackers is a fave movie of mine. It’s go classic lines and great humour. And the opening with Baba O’Riley playing sets the tone of the whole movie.
You’re The One That I Want – Grease
Can’t talk music from school related movies without including Grease. It’s a classic and has so many great songs, but I chose to go with the closing tune because I wanted to.
There are lots of songs from school related movies, so if you think I missed a good one, hit us up.
Today is BOB’s birthday! While the podcast may not have been launched until October, today is the anniversary of when the concept of Box Office Beats was born. Mandy and FEAR had planned on doing just an episode of their own shows, but the idea was too big, and was decided to be it’s own podcast.
And while they may have gotten busy with life, BOB is still near and dear to them and still going. There will always be a BOB in some form.
So thanks for being along for the adventure and stick around as it continues to grow.
by admin·Comments Off on Top 5 Songs From Musicals
Sometimes BOB likes to change things up and decides to let us do a blog post. Well, it’s usually Mandy doing them. Now, I am not always a fan of musicals, especially tv shows that decide to do a “special”musical episode. But there are some movie musicals I actually dig. So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from musicals! Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife
Rent – La Vie Boheme
Now most people would choose Seasons of Love from Rent. But me, I really like La Vie Boheme and think it captures the spirit of the movie. Honestly though, I like almost all the songs in it.
Rocky Horror Picture Show – Time Warp
I love horror movies. And I love fun songs. So of course I love Rocky Horror. And Time Warp is a classic.
Phantom Of The Opera – Theme Song
Although Phantom is a stage musical mainly (so are most of these), there have been a few movie versions. And I always loved it. I had the cassette tapes (old school) and listened to them a lot as a kid. And I still love it.
Annie – Hard Knock Life
As a kid of the 80s, I grew up watching the 80s movie version of Annie. And I still love it.
Newsies – King Of New York
I was obsessed with Newsies as a kid. I wore out my VHS tape on this song. And I still know all the words.
So while these may not be the main stream picks for musical songs, these are 5 I really enjoy.
