I was doing the ironing at 6.00 am first morning, prior to the school run. when, for no particular reason, i started to sing Virginia Plain. Roxy Music’s first single is a perennial favourite, so why not?
Bryan was certainly firing on all cylinders with his cinematic references in the lyrics. Flying down to Rio, Whatever happened to Baby Jane and Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show from 1971. Who remembers that fine film today? (It featured a young Cybill Shepherd and Jeff Bridges and was rather good).
Anyway, I would like to hear about any other songs which refer to movies. Interpret that as broadly as you like. It might be name dropping of a film title or could be something more obscure.
