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.

BOB is always evolving and we are trying something new. A blog post! This time it’s about John Hughs movies. These movies were iconic in the 80s and all had great music featured in them. They all had a big song. So here are our Top 5 picks! Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife
Breakfast Club – Don’t You (Forget About Me)
Who knew a movie about kids in detention on a Saturday could be so iconic? And the closing scene with this song just seal the movie on the perfect note. A brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.
Pretty In Pink – If You Leave
It still bothers me (Mandy) that Andie wanted so bad to be with the jerky popular guy. But I get it.
Sixteen Candles – If You Were Here
Again, the movie closes with a perfect song to play in a great ending scene. And this scene has been recreated in many other movies (Happy Death Day) because it’s so iconic. (Am I saying iconic too much?)
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Twist and Shout
Who hasn’t skipped school? Well I don’t think our day off adventures were quite like the ones Ferris had. I mean, who actually crashes a parade?
Weird Science – Weird Science
Weird Science was a great tv show as well, and I was a big fan of it. The movie was good too. Who doesn’t love nerds building their own sexbot…err…I mean woman friend?
