An interesting trend in Hollywood movie scores is the use of similar songs as the credits and title themes. In addition, I’ve noticed that sometimes the similarities are only slight, and sometimes it’s a mixture of both. This article is about How Baby Boomers Chooses Songs For the Credits.
One of the most famous songs used in the credits is “Stayin’ Alive.” The song’s very catchy and has become almost an anthem for the Baby Boomer generation. It’s easy to see why this song is the choice for the titles and credits: it’s familiar, catchy, and memorable.
“Stayin’ Alive” was written by George Gershwin in 1924, and the lyrics by his wife, Mabel Lionel. They were inspired by their own experience growing up in an orphanage. After years of raising money for charity, they came up with the idea of writing a song to raise money.
Most Influential Songs of All Time
This song was named the “Most Influential Songs of All Time” by “People Magazine” in 1977. When they listed the top artists, it was the first song on the list that was by a female artist.
The next song that comes to mind when you hear “Stayin’ Alive” is “I’ve Got A Feeling,” which was by a British pop group called the “Boys” with the lead singer, Keith Harrison. The song became famous because of two reasons: it was written by David Bowie, and it appeared in the film “The Man Who Fell To Earth.” This movie made the song a favorite among fans of sci-fi movies.
I’m going to discuss the oldie but goodies for a moment because that’s the foundation of the song. That theme can be heard in so many songs that have hit the scene in recent years, such as “Everybody Hurts,” by Barenaked Ladies. The song itself is popular, but the lyrics, in my opinion, aren’t that good.
If you’re looking for a cool singer/songwriter, try “You’re The Inspiration,” by Enya. Her song is filled with beautiful melodies and love messages for people who are struggling with addiction issues.
Baby Boomers Chooses Songs For the Credits
“Anybody Can Play Guitar” by Michael Franti and Spearhead is a great choice if you like musicians, and have a love for string quartet music. You’ll love the lead guitarist, Gordon Gano, and his amazing tone. The second verse is catchy, and it helps to make the song timeless.
“Walking On Sunshine” by Van Morrison is a terrific choice for oldies. It’s a powerful love song with lots of lovely instrumentation. The vocal is well done, and the song has a strong “oldies” appeal.
“Out Of The Blue” by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel is another classic from the ’70s. Its quite different than other songs on the list, and it’s a nice addition to the list. It’s a good rendition of “Stayin’ Alive,” and it’s perfect for when you want to escape the craziness of everyday life.
These are just some of the more popular songs for baby boomers, but you can find plenty of great choices that will play when the credits roll. You’ll also find a lot of songs that you’ll love, from new and classic artists, and it can help to decide on your own choice for a classic movie score.
