Well done Sir T with ”From Russia with Love”. James Bond was a spy who always got his man which makes him a superhero in my book. I remembered one of my favorite telly superheros, Batman. This is the tv theme from the 60’s.
Our winner last week was a song from a film …a song written especially for that film…so this week we decided to ave as our link a song that was not written for a film but which eventually became a film….there are a surprising number of these in fact…but our selection is the song Jack & Dianne by John Mellencamp …this song about a couple of high school sweethearts was written in 19882 but the movie inspired by it was not released util 30 years later in 2012 ….the song does not even appear in the movie…!
Last week Terence won wiv From Russia wiv Love sung by Matt Monroe. Our favourite Monroe is Marilyn and our favourite jewels are diamonds and they are a dogs best friend apart from noms obvs!
Based on Sir Sean Connery's recommendation, Terence did win with a super tune " From Russia With Love ". Connery is an avid proponent of Scottish independence as is another well-known artist, Stuart Murdock, the frontman for Belle and Sebastion. As evidenced by the vote on September 18, 2014, neither was in sync with "The Party Line".
So the pawsome Sir T gave us Matt Monroe with the Bond theme . . . coz who dusn’t love a bit of 007, right? Well, actually, US President JFK named From Russia With Love one of his all time top ten favourite books in a Life magazine interview. In this month in 1962 it was JFK’s inauguration & celebrated African-American contralto, Marian Anderson, sang the National Anthem at the ceremony. Marian was an active supporter of the civil rights movement and probably best known for the Lincoln Memorial Concert (the 1939 documentary of which was preserved in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress), having been denied access to sing in public buildings because of her colour. Here she is from that 1939 concert singing ‘My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’, a popular American patriotic anthem of the time, although you may recognise the tune.
in Russia Wiv Love the Bond girl is Tatiana Romanova played by Daniela Bianchi. She also starred in a movie called O.K. Connery an Italian spaghetti spy film starring James Bond's bruvva. Interestingly the role is played by Sean Connery's actual brother - Neil Connery. The music for OK Connery was composed by Ennio Morricone. My linky dus be Sean Connery and Ennio Morricone so I give you The Untouchables Feem Toon - the movie starred Sean Connery and Morricone composed the feem toon.
