|I was scooting around Hulu yesterday trying to find something new to entertain Yaz and Macaroni, and keep them from tearing off each other's limbs. We are a TV free family during the school year, but sometimes that just doesn't work out in my advantage and I have to take desperate measures.|
So what amazing things did I find, you ask. Only the animated version of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, Seasons 1 and 2. I had no idea such a show existed. (And yes, they have the original cast of voices.) It didn't do anything to dampen the fury brewing between my monsters, but Katydid may just have a new favorite cartoon.
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure was the first movie I ever went to without adult supervision. A friend and I were deemed finally old enough to go out on our own (though I now wonder if it wasn't just a concession because none of our parents could stomach the thought of sitting through it - Fred: The Movie gives me the same feeling).
It is still one of my all time favorite movies, ridiculous as it may be. Mr. IMo? and I quote it almost as much as Encino Man. The movie came out just when I was becoming musically aware, and it sort of inspired me to let music take over a large part of my life.
That said, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure arguably has the worst soundtrack of any music focused movie I have ever seen. When you listen to that junk it is no wonder grunge was such a breath of fresh (though angst ridden) air.
I tracked down the soundtrack list (below). For a movie that so often lauds Van Halen, not even they bother to throw the soundtrack a bone.
1. Play With Me - Extreme
|2. The Boys And Girls Are Doing It - Vital Signs|
|3. Not So Far Away - Glen Burtnick|
|4. Dancing With A Gypsy - Tora Tora|
|5. Father Time - Shark Island|
|6. I Can't Break Away - Big Pig|
|7. Dangerous - Shark Island|
|8. Walk Away - Bricklin|
|9. In Time - Robbie Robb|
10. Two Heads Are Better Than One - Power Tool
HOWEVER, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey does a better job on the music though the movie is lame. I love how you can see the change in musical styles already in motion by the time of the sequel.
Shout It Out- Slaughter
Battle Stations- Winger
God Gave Rock 'N Roll To You II- KISS
Drinking Again - Neverland
Dream of a New Day - Richie Kotzen
So today I have a challenge for you readers.
