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.

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.
by BOB·Comments Off on Top 5 Songs from John Hughes Movies
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?
