Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll_102


Have you ever seen a really bad major motion picture where the original soundtrack music was the only good part of the film? We have. 

Our resident “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” Rockogolist, Ken Deutsch, picked 30 such flicks, and I plucked 40 songs that debuted in those pictures for this presentation. 

Most of these movies were musicals that hit the wrong notes. But our celluloid collection also includes atrocious comedies, dreadful dramas, science fiction fiascos, and creepy cult classics. 

Three of those films featured songs that were written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David – one of the greatest composing teams of all-time. And there were sundry superstars whose singing surpassed the plots of the pictures in which their songs originated: Olivia Newton-John, Queen, Dionne Warwick, David Bowie, Diana Ross, the Electric Light Orchestra, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, the Bee Gees, Dusty Springfield, and Frankie Avalon, among others. Then there’s the famed actor – Lee Marvin – whose vocal was so bad that it turned out good. 

Hear it all here.
